I'm not actually advocating for them to be banned, I'm just pointing out how ridiculous this ban system is using their own logic..You're not actually. You're trying to claim a false equivalence between misconduct and simply not being good and then use that in attempt to mitigate your responsibily as a user. 'It's not my fault, I'm acting badly because of this' Focus on the misconduct rather than trying to make excuses for it.
I have absolutely zero responsibility as a user to finish a game, or not betray, I paid for the game, I pay for Xbox live, I play how and when I want.
You expect people to just accept that they paid 60 dollars for a game on release to have it not even be playable, then years down the road have the rules changed so you get banned for playing the same way you have played for over 15 years with out a single ban.
It was never an issue until 343 starting screwing with halo. If it was an issue I would of been reported enough so Xbox live would of punished me or according to that previously posted link bungie.
The only misconduct I see is 343 screwing with the halo multiplayer system, if you want to implement these systems do it on future games.
If 343 isn't going to fix this mess they created just refund my money, I will gladly accept a refund and give back the digital download.
