Are you sure the ban isn’t 1 hour, 18 minutes and 20 seconds?

According to your matchmaking history, you have a number of unfinished games.

Dear lord
Yes you finsh the game like a bigboy. Im glad you were banded and i hope people reportrd your gt for quiting early
And I hope someone reported you back to school for your atrocious grammar.

As for OP, Idling is still bad so while harsh It seems the Ban-hammer is working as intended.

They're not punishing you for losing a game, they're punishing you for your playing attitude, which you've admitted to do when you start losing.

The game can't determine when a game is actually lost, so it doesn't matter how bad the scores are, we are all equally punished if we quit, disconnects, idle etc. Some matches can be salvaged by the losing team. If there was no punishment for idling or quitting when you're not in the lead, do you think players would continue playing as soon as they think they can't win?
Still says it's a more harsher punishment then it should be. It honestly discourages playing the game making it for that long.
nope, you're entirely wrong.
it discourages lousy players with a noob-y attitude not willing to finish a game, just because of [reasons].
if you're too afraid to take a great loss once in a while, don't play competetive games, simple as that.
there'll always be games where you'll be on the losing side with a great difference.
that's still no reason to rage quit, and if you do nonetheless, you're a bad loser, sorry.
Was just temporarily banned for 1 day, 18 hours and 20 minutes for idling in warzone (In my defense, if my team is losing by 400+ points, and the enemy only has 100 more score to go, and we're getting hammered, what I am honestly supposed to do? Just run out and get slaughtered? Heck, I could honestly just grind another game and get stuck on that by the time it's lifted)

At least with Halo 4's and Halo Reaches ban, it lasted for 30min to an hour

Please note that I do NOT support idling. Heck, I hate when someone does it in arena >.>
Your Game History proves you are worthy of the Hammers Strike. Here's a link to my Ban Hammer praise post, where you can donate your tears.

Then why did you idle?

All those dnfs and then admitting they sit afk on purpose. This is just another person that deserved their ban. Nothing else to say. Ban hammer justice strikes again. These are my favorite threads to read on here now. :)
my god, its making my eyes bleed
ALL PRAISE THE BAN HAMMER!!!
What? It got an Overkill? I thought it could do better, at least a Killtrocity. Come on Ban Hammer, step up your game man.
Yes you finsh the game like a bigboy. Im glad you were banded and i hope people reportrd your gt for quiting early
And I hope someone reported you back to school for your atrocious grammar.

As for OP, Idling is still bad so while harsh It seems the Ban-hammer is working as intended.
Sir, you are missing a "." after harsh. Poor grammer. What a shame.
Being punished after already losing game that you can't come back from... yeah, great, good incentive to keep playing 343. Back in Halo 3, you went down a rank, in Halo Reach you got banned for 15min. Now, you just give me the feeling of not bothering coming back. Congrats.
That's the point. They don't want you back. They're trying to rid the game of poor sports for the good community members.
Quitters, Idlers, whatever you want to call it deserved to be banned after multiple incidents.
They made the ban hammer easier to get because before you could idle a whole assault game without being kicked. Anyways if they have 100 to win the game only has 3 odd mins left, so why leave.
To the Ban Hammer, praise be.

Legit question OP:

When you are playing Monopoly or Checkers with your friends or family, do they let you quit because you are losing? I'm really trying to figure out where this mindset comes from

So you won't get a loss. Duh

This is the new way the troll's are getting their food.
So some complain people aren't getting banned... then complain for being banned...
Be happy it was only for one day my friend got banned for 14 days lol for being idle, granted he idled all night but -Yoink- 14 days sucks lol
