The only thing about the banhammer that has had significant change would be the amount of dnfs it takes to catch a ban, and that this system is completely automated. I have never been booted after 2 betrayals, maybe it lowers the amount if you have a history of team killing. (I should add that this is my opinion after playing thousands of games and only receiving two idle bans for mexican food).
The ban hammer for Halo 3 wasn't as buggy or extreme as the Halo 5 one from my memory. I would have to go afk for 3 minutes, or get 4 teamkills, or 3 teamkills on a single player, or quit out of 3 matches in a row, or quit out of 10 matches in a day before the banhammer slammed on me with any hint of reason. Where's your memory at? The Halo 3 banhammer was quite reasonable. Halo 5, if you get two accidental tks, you're sol and can get banned in one game.
Congratulations 343 for making such a ridiculous policy that no one likes and requires an entire thread to express frustrations. Coming from a business management point of view how well do you think it works to be pissing your customers off like this? I have suffered one of these ridiculous bans just as everyone has described. I am a seasoned Halo Player, I’ve been playing since the original Halo and I am a die hard fan. But now, this game is ruined for me. This piece of crap will be deleted from my system immediately. Know that gaming is a competitive field, and if you don’t listen to your customers you will ultimately suffer. Just look at the number of complaints you have for this very topic and have you listened? No. I should have listened when all of my friends said Halo is a dead. I can see why. Congratulations to losing yet another fan for your ridiculous antics. For me Halo ended with part 3. Forget this game. You can expect to never hear from me again and you have lost yet another fan. Of course you won’t care. So whatever.If you have been around that long then you will remember the ban hammer from h3.
Nope. I had it in my recordings as of almost 2 years ago, where I splattered two of my teammates in a wraith trying to turbo away from a hijacking. Near the armory on escape from ARC; as one guy was trying to hop into my turret instead of shooting the blue, and another teammate jumps down from the arch rock towards the vehicle bay of garage. Of course, I got booted for the accidental tks, and received a 1 hour ban. Too bad I can't post videos on this forum from Xboxdvr. And before you accuse me of quitting beforehand, I encourage you to look through the entirety of my service record and conjure up a percentage of my quits/dnfs. Don't try and sugar coat it, or over-glorify the system, because it's not perfect.
Instead, ask people what happened prior to the ban, if there's any patterns, if they think something was wrong connection wise, etc. Make statements about the problems with the game that are known; such as while you're playing on wireless. Don't try to be helpful, but blame everything on the player.
