Let me make it clear to you. Your argument is essentially in two parts. A: It isn't against the rules, therefore it isn't bad. That doesn't follow. Whether or not something is prohibited has absolutely nothing to do with whether it is right or wrong. At varying times many completely moral and right things could land you in jail or lead you to be executed. That is not a valid defense of farming.
I didn't get your first sentence but I'll try to respond. I never said its good, its just not against the rules. Almost if not everything has negative consiquences, even your decision to play warzone despite knowing you could potentially get obliterated, you have the coice to either suck it up and allow people to choose they way they play, or go play arena if you truly want a "fair" experience which warzone wasn't built around providing. The difference in your comparasion would be that a pregnant person would be told not to do it, and that though its not illegal, your risking not only the childs life, but also yours. But warzone on the other hand clearly tells you its alright, and though it may have a few negatives, they are nowhere near the scale of what drinking while pregnant is.
Let's try a syllogism.
Well its not a bad thing, its annoying but it isn't bad.
Yes,good people don't do bad things.
Well maybe they aren't boosting their stats but they just want to have fun, and have a different version of fun than others. Also, the mechanics aren't broken, it is within the rules of the game mode to solely go for kills and win that way, just like you can win by bosses and cores. It literally says it on the page as you load in warzone.
Quote:Good players don't need to artificial boost their stats or take advantage of broken mechanics to play the game.
Warzone farming is an example of unsporting conduct.
Unsporting conduct is an example of bad behavior.
Warzone farming is an example of bad behavior.
The mechanics are broken. Teams should not be matched against randoms. The spawning mechanics are downright awful. Regardless of motivation the action itself is unsporting. I've already shut you down on this once, I don't feel the need to rehash this.
What? Not only have they not tried to stop people, they haven't said anything on the issue other than a few months ago when they released some sort of numbers on farming, I don't know exactly what it was but getting onto your comparison. Your over exaggerating a small issue with a comparison that barely makes any sense, in the real world you'd at least see something on the issue but no, 343 had said jack for a long time now and has done jack. We can also take into account that sens 343 lowers the player limit they are listening, but don't think its an issue.
Quote:That kind of conflation of ethics and laws or rules is something I'd expect from a child. You should attempt to defend the position you took instead of saying, "OOH They haven't stopped me yet, I can rob as many banks as I want."
What I'm trying to say is that without any action being taken, no matter how small, I'd seem to me that its a nonissue with them. Your real world comparisons sit outside the realm of logic as scenarios like that are more complicated than this one.
How is it irrelevant? You talk as if fireteams are all at fault and that team matchmaking solves everything when all it does is lower the chances by an extremely small degree.
Quote:It's also irrelevant that some randoms farm.
I admit that, I used to frequently spawn in solid objects and on cliffs, but other than that I don't know what you mean.
Quote:No assault's mechanics aren't the only ones that are broken. Spawning is broken across the board. Arena, WZ, WZFF, and Assault.
Completely wrong, I don't know when I over insinuated saying its not bad. So let me put it in simple terms since you continue to make assumptions based off one sentence. What I'm trying to say is, farming is not an exploit, it is not cheating, and as far as the games stated, not against the rules although not intended. I was trying to defend farming when I said your comparison was illogical, I was saying it wasn't right for that specific situation and overly dramatic a comparison.
Quote: And B: Randoms do it so it must be okay.
Never, and I mean NEVER did I say or even allude to that. Think outside the "no matter what I'm right so I'll say whatever" mindset. I honestly don't know where you got that from, it absolutely makes no sense. If I must explain myself, I added that in because people seem to think up silly reasons for people farming, as well as stereotype them as fireteams or Achilies wearers, or they just group any obliteration by a team as farming.
Quote:As for you current post. No you cannot say that because 343 hasn't issued a declaration or made changes to WZ and WZA (They did in the latter case) to stop the problem. That doesn't follow either. You can determine someone's position from inaction. It is also irrelevant. What 343 think about farming has no bearing on whether it is unsportsmanlike conduct or not. That is definitional.
First off, everything thats in bold just doesn't fit together, try putting what your responding to in a quote or something cause I honestly don't know what your responding too or trying to say. As for the rest, what they think about farming determines whether or not its within the rules or an exploit/cheating. Which is what I'm arguing about anyway.
Quote:Yes, I realize that when I click on any playlist I can lose badly. That isn't what farming is. You obviously don't understand the concept if you think that it is. Unnaturally prolonging a losing game either just to be a -Yoink- or to boost your stats is unsporting. As for the idea that it is okay, because I'm aware that I can be farmed? That is the equivalent of telling a woman whose been raped that it's her fault because she wore a skirt and took a shortcut through an alley.
Actually, thats exactly what farming is, losing badly. You get triple caped, and killed til the enemy team either cores or wins, sounds like you lost badly. Unnaturally prolonging a game? Most warzone games between randoms last longer than farming games for the same reason, kills. Most warzone games you play are normally around 20 minutes long if you go solo because both teams would rather slaughter each other than kill bosses or cap bases. Though farming is more one sided and annoying. As for your comparison, you really like to make extreme comparisons don't you? In the game you can leave, you can camp and wait it out at the expense of time, you can fight back which will make time go faster, you can play arena or customs. In that scenario, there is really not escape unless the alley was avoided from the start, and the consequences are much worse.
