Farming in gametypes is far from something to be considered "toxic behavior", as it is literally just a strategic method to get the commendations done faster, and most often while it does involve a disconnection from the primary objective, it isn't actually breaking any in game rules or involve direct confrontational indecency. Therefore, it is not promoting a toxic environment, but rather a more complex environment instead. Some players may consider it toxic because it indirectly creates conflict that does match their own goals or playstyle, but in reality those players just need to suck it up and understand that the world / game and it's differing player priorities does not revolve around them.
I don't think spartan companies should return in Infinite. They were fun for a bit in 5, but quickly promoted a toxic environment that was built around farming for commendations. There's not really a point to playing a match if most of your teammates are focused on farming a specific commendation that has nothing to do with the objective. And the same applies to playing against a team that's just farming as well. Warzone Assault became unplayable for a long time because of this.
I sent you a message, and the other LTs from your Company.

Since OP is being annoying by sending out spam messages, I think 343 should shut down spartan companies even earlier.It's not spam to message many different people about the same thing. Thes people are in different groups. Spartan Companies are great. Spam is when you send many messages to the same person without them responding

Hundreds of people care about the loss of Spartan companies, I would think as a leader you would too.
I am actually curious to hear your opinion on the shut down of Company administration, if you care to share on the topic of this thread.
This whole statement proves just how toxic it can
be. Imagine yourself in a game of warzone, and are stuck in your home base because the enemy team is farming kills with their vehicles or particular weapons. They purposely avoid damaging the core in the name of getting more kills. Sure... it's not breaking any rules, I'm pretty sure no one here was under the impression it was, but to say it's an acceptable behavior because it isn't breaking any game rules, shows just how pervasive it is. It makes the game miserable for the other players and ultimately forces them out. Telling them to "suck it up" shows a lack of caring and understanding for other gamers in the community and their thoughts on the matter.
It's one thing to play the game, and get credit towards comms through natural play, and I'm even ok pushing the boundaries (i.e., getting any opposing player in the home base to farm marines)... I have no issue with those types of things. What I do have an issue with, is being consistently spawn killed while the enemy team controls everything, and I'm left with nothing to do because they need the kills. Telling me to "suck it up", only exacerbates the problem.
My issue (and I'm pretty sure the real issue behind this topic) is how 343 handled Spartan Companies and their lack of communication or understanding of the community, and how we as the community should we as the community should handle it.
