oooooor just ban people by how many reports they get via the built in xbox one report system. this is the least fun halo has ever been, its like playing on egg shells in fear of being banned, such a bad system. its clear this system isn't working just by this thread alone. When a system is implemented that makes the game unenjoyable to someone who has played the game almost exclusively since its release you know you screwed up, leave bad ban systems like this for their future games that i will probably not play. I shouldn't have to change my style of play after all these years because of some flawed system that was implemented after the fact. I was never banned on the xbox or the xbox 360 or on the xbox one until this update, and i never had any issue with other players sitting idle or quitting games.
Quitting is better than having players stand there idle, now that ruins the game and this system does nothing to stop them. Quitting is better off going unpunished in order to prevent idle players.
You're welcome to play however you want;run around the map trying to kill people with needlers for all I care. However if that includes quitting whenever you're losing or quitting if you dont like the map, then you're screwing over the rest of your team, and you deserve a ban. Casual does not mean no consequences for engaging in play that ruins the experience for others.
Or in casual they could be smart and just remove all bans so we can play how we want.
I understand why I was banned for 5 minutes for quitting one game. But when 5 of the 8 players on your team are AFK, and the enemy is camping your spawn. What’s the point in staying?!Hopefully they'll tweak things soon and start banning the afk players too...
A better system needs to be implemented, I rarely quit, only under extreme circumstances, like those above. I know 5 minutes isn’t that long, in fact it was just enough time to gather my thoughts, sign in to waypoint and compose this post, but one quit shouldn’t prevent you from going back in immediately.
I totally hear you. I wish the xbox one report system was more effective. Sadly, I don't think it gets any follow up by MS unless there are either:
- Descriptions attached
- Clear evidence of messages that are hateful, discriminatory, lude, threatening etc.
I have a strong feeling that the ban system will in fact be updated again.
My guess is it won't be in the "December/January" update - but likely in the next one.
There has been TONS of feedback on this system - I agree.
However, I think more than 50% of it is just people complaining about getting banned for behaviour that is actually not ok, and the system doing it's job.
Less than 50% of the feedback (but still super important feedback) is the type we see where there are unjust bans, or new bad behaviours. I totally believe this will be addressed.
343 specifically said that this system is not meant to stay static, and they will listen to feedback.
But it takes time to create and test new changes, it won't happen overnight. All we can do is leave our feedback and suggestions. Mine is to not scrap the system, but make it better.
Yes, in the meantime it creates some issues - but they are gathering data right now. Scrapping it altogether without implementing a new system immediately would stop this data collection process.
And I hear you about the potential for 'unenjoyable' matches. IMO, the biggest issue is idle players. I really hope that gets resolved.
