Yo you guys are all Inheritors and multiple of you have Grifball boosted according to your Halo Reach service records. From my perspective this post has attracted those who Grifball boosted and are now wanting the method the be patched since they've already reached max rank and just want to feel important because "muh Inheritor".
I've played against Inheritors and most of you guys are decent at best while others are very challenging and you have to adapt accordingly to defeat them. It's like beating a Dark Souls boss beating a very skilled Inheritor after getting rekt early on in the match and pulling back and winning. But there's been Inheritors I've outright humiliated in matchmaking and I'm pretty new (Warrent Officer Grade 3 owned the game for like a week).
I've played two or three games of Grifball and have seen attempts at peace matches but usually someone just scores. If someone has the patience to withstand hours of running around an empty box or getting spawn killed I say they deserve those credits for their legendary levels of patience. That grind looks boring as heck.
I don't mess up peoples games as it will only make them play more matches to compensate for lost credits. Plus if they want that rank so bad to wait around for HOURS then making it worse for them is kinda trollish and pointless. If you want to play the game as intended just score once and that seems to rile everyone up to fight for their reduced credits. I don't fully understand how the whole thing works credit-wise and I can't be bothered to care. Rank means nothing unless you just want to brag about how good you supposedly are, grinding only means you can brag but not have the skills to back it. If someone wants to grind Grifball more power to them let them do what they want. If you got to Inheritor just but the puny amount of credits from other game modes, great!
But why be a downer on everyone else parade when you just want to feel special over a video game?
My rank is Hero actually.
Also, there is no justification of violation of Code of Conduct
if the developer did not intend to have this objective based gametype used as such, keeping in mind the developer's intention is at the end of the day to score the objective, which is to attempt to score the goal. So as stated before, if you can score the objective in the objective based gametype, the clear intention of the objective based gametype, then why wouldn't you?
People are utilizing grifball to boost cR, commedations, and statpad (Boost K/D ratio). Boosting this way is cheating and hence violates Code of Conduct. Also people who want to play the objective based gametype as intended in matchmaking, which is their right as they pay for the services provided via Xbox LIVE Gold, and those services, which are bound by Code of Conduct cannot as people have to exploit to boost in this fashion and when they cannot properly utilize the services they pay for due to others degrading the quality of service of LIVE and gameplay experience through boosting and griefing, that violates LIVE Code of Conduct as well from the booster and griefers end.
This is the principal of the point. People want to utilize the LIVE services they pay for on Halo: Reach to play Grifball with other people who play Grifball, to have fun games trying to outwit one another to score the goal, the objective of the objective based gametype, not sit in a corner for 13+ minutes to boost cR, or fall victim to spawncampkilling, neither of which are the objective of the objective based gametype set up by the developer. Not everybody can grab seven friends in one getgo consistently to take them into Custom Games to play Grifball, which is why they wish to use the matchmaking service to find others who want to play. Honestly, people shouldn't have to be pushed into custom Grifball games due to griefing boosters in matchmaking who are violating the binding agreements they agreed to when they created their Xbox LIVE account. Code of Conduct is a binding agreement, not a suggestion.
It has nothing to do with rank to be honest, at the end of the day, people want to be able to utilize the services they are paying for that are being ruined more and more consistently by cheaters who have no regard for others and/or contracts/binding agreements. So, no, we will not allow people to continue to violate Xbox LIVE Code of Conduct and abuse the matchmaking Grifball gametype as an exploit to boost and grief.
