That's what I was saying. The people who quit first should be busted harder. Quitting seriously unfair matches where you're outnumbered because people on your team were jerks and quit before you shouldn't get you in trouble.omarlotrc wrote:Oh, were you the last two on your team?

I've had games on there where I've destroyed my opponents with the gauss so I've been on both sides of that pain. As I said before, I rarely quit but being heavily outnumbered 8 to 2 and getting spawn killed repeatedly with no chance of it stopping is enough to justify it even for me. I'd rather hide for 15 minutes instead of quitting but getting spawn killed for 15 minutes sucks and going negative 50 in the process isn't fun.omarlotrc wrote:Was there a Gauss Hog going ham? If so, I know which game you're talking about. Though to be honest, with games like that it's important to just stick through it until it's over, otherwise your teammates will have an even harder time.General Luigi wrote:I rarely, if ever, quit out of games even when I'm heavily outnumbered. I'm usually among the final few who stay in game even when it's heavily against me. That said, even I have my limits.
I was trying out some of the heavy game types in Halo 3 yesterday (which are very fun by the way). It was going well until I got a certain match on Standoff against a large, coordinated team while playing alone. Within the first couple minutes, the enemy had control of almost everything and the only people left was myself and one other person. I was going to hide and stick it out but I wasn't able to live for more than 5 seconds thanks to the spawn killing being that bad. There was 15 minutes left and the enemy only had about 20 kills to my team's 5 or so. The match had no chance of ending unless me and the other poor guy got spawn trapped 80 more times which would've meant that we would've went horribly negative (I'm talking negative 35 or worse). I'm sorry but if quitting out of a game like that makes me a jerk, I apparently am one but I doubt anyone else here would stay in a game where getting spawn trapped to 70 of the enemy's 100 kills was the only way to make it end.
That being said, I think the first quit should be forgiven. This system is a little too harsh right now.
