So today in halo 5 I randomly got three crashes. One of which froze my screen and I had to quit, one of which dashboarded me, and another that threw me out of the match for no reason. Then I finally get in a game and I get a quick phone call in the other room (landline) and I come back to find I got the wake up john penalty and a banhammer strike for 7 hours and 19 min. I get that I had to step away from the game for the phone call, but man the crashing of the game shouldn't have counted against me.

So anyone besides me running into more frequent game crashes today?

Looks like I'm not banned from warzone though, guess 343 wants people to play their micro transaction section more or something. Was planning on playing some warzone later any ways.
Mine crashed twice while in game. Lucky i didnt get banned. But i stopped playing because i got pissed because we were winning but game is crashing for no reason. Not even an error code on Xbox.
If you didn't consistently quit then your lag/freeze quits wouldn't get you banned.

Arena and Warzone bans are separate from each other.

I don't quit. I have game crashes and rarely the wake up john thing because sometimes I need to respond to real life.

So you also experienced increased crashes today? I have a feeling that the game has become more unstable since the update.

I have crashes a lot too, and don't get banned. The only time I have been banned is when I quit deliberately, and/or idled too long. Sorry dude, but I have been playing this for a long time and I know you don't get banned due to lag out or game crashes. Even Josh said in one of the MM uplate threads that they can tell between a lag out and a manual quit. I don't have to source right now but I will try to find it.

Well I don't know what to say, I just don't quit. You can say whatever you want about the back end technology but that doesn't match with what I have experienced. The main point here isn't the ban though, it's the surprising diversity and number of crashes I have experienced today. I think the Hot Fix has made the game more unstable.

I have never got a ban until my game crashed. Unless this is a new feature if you lag out or freeze you can still get a ban from multiplayer. I did receive one.
Noticed something similar in custom games as well. I’ll wait a bit before trying Firefight again if this is occurring. I’ve only got so many tanks and banshees I’d hate to get the boot after using one.
