Too bad the game doesn't tell you why you're banned eh?
Hello. My MCC PC gamertag is marcodgf91. I received a notification that I have been banned for the next 24 hours. Is it because I’ve been disconnected from certain team matches? I’d understand if it was because I intentionally quit during the match, but I have never done it intentionally, and if it happened recently, It’s because I’ve been having some connection issues With your service. One match had just started and immediately I was left out in the matchmaking lobby. It’s not my fault, and it’s totally unjustified that I get banned for this. At least tell me specifically why the ban happened. As far as I know, I haven’t used any harsh language either on my chat. In my last match I accidentally betrayed 2 teammates, would at have been the cause? It was not intentional at all, and it happened mostly because I have been lagging today especially.
I keep getting bans after a match. I'm playing the match normally, game ends, sit in the matchmaking lobby and boom
No power courage or internet disconnection
No leaving matches
Nothing
I dont understand

Are you playing on PC or X1?

Are you able to record a short video of it happening at the end of your match?

The same is happening to me. It's probably kids that are salty about losing and abusing the system
So, today, twice in a row, the game starts loading a match, then I'm brought back to the main menu with a message saying my connection was interrupted. Tried to find another and it happened again and this time I was banned for quitting a match I never joined nor started.

wut.
Logged on today and tried to play matchmaking and was hit was a ban notice until 8/31/2020, I have done literally nothing to earn a full month ban. The previous day i played one matchmaking game and the rest was campaign, and no history of quitting or disconnecting from games. How can i appeal this?

Month long bans tend to be for more severe misconduct. Discriminatory language, network/matchmaking manipulation attempts, idle boosting etc.

Well i submitted a ticket, i would be nice to know why specifically a ban of the magnitude is given
I know it is weird?!
Can I get banned on MCC PC version through the games pass on the Xbox app? I only ask because I tried to play multiplayer with an Xbox one controller plugged in and I didn't ever connect to games but it told me that another player got banned and then I did too so I don't understand why I'm getting banned when I'm not utilizing any cheat software or doing anything wrong.
So, I've just finished a rumble pit on Reach right now. Finished first place at 25 points.
Game went to the lobby and booted me out saying I've been temp banned for a couple of minutes.

It's lifted now, but I've got no idea what I've done wrong here. Felt like I needed to post this here however. Perhaps there's a bug where I left the lobby too quickly? I'm not sure.

Anyways thanks for reading.

EDIT:
Holy cow. Just went through multiple lobbies of being constantly disconnected, slapped on a different game mode this time being 4v4, then I receive a message saying I've been kicked from the game. On matchmaking. Says I'll be banned for 1 minute again. Anyone else having the same issue?
Banned during first social matchmaking game of the night in Halo 2, BR slayer. No reason given that I saw, and now can't re-queue. What the hell? Can someone please tell me at least why I was kicked & banned?

Just happened to me in Slayer...no idea why other than being wrongly reported or a broken system banning people for overloaded internet connections while everyone is at home & online during this pandemic.
Is getting banned for being bad a thing?

Was playing the new H2:A last night on the PC, on my very first game and unsurprisingly I got hammered on the keyboard I wasn't used to. Got like 3 kills and 13 deaths on Team Slayer which cost our team the match. It picked the next game but then before it launched I got "you've been kicked from the game". And then it wouldn't let me search for another for a few minutes - five or ten minutes at most. After that I had no problems for the whole evening - so I really don't know what to blame?

I used the time to make some tea so I'm not angry or anything like that. Its just if there's a sportmanship algorithm that, as an unintended consequence, boots players for bad performance, or an ability of players to get teammates kicked by reporting, I dont think it should be applying to social playlists.
I also had this happen to me, I got kicked in early game in H2 BR slayer. Went 3/5 and got kicked and banned for no apparent reason. Wasn't in the chat, voice or text, didn't betray or disconnect. No idea what happened & would love to find out.
