I get banned pretty much every single day I play this game from THEIR servers dropping my connection. And no, this system can /not/ tell if you did anything wrong, today's ban was 30 minutes because the Halo Servers disconnected me just before the match was about to start, twice in a row. That's it. And it did the same thing to me yesterday, so I get a full 30 minutes. What the heck am I paying for? This system is such trash.If you are getting banned then you are getting dropped much more often than the average player. If you are getting dropped when other players are not getting dropped, then it is more likely an issue with your provider and / or connection than it is with the game in general. H5 uses its own networking protocol and some providers treat that protocol as if it were a bad thing and drop you because of it, which isn't something that can be changed on the game side.
We paid for the game, and then they make us pay an extra 15 bucks a month to actually play it online - the entire reason for owning a Halo game, and then they kick us out from playing the game we overpaid for because THEIR servers drop our connection. If this company keeps up this theft then their next title will fail hard, and they'll deserve it too.
Because you are dropping more than usual, you are also ruining the game more than usual for the other 7 players in each match, so it is better to ban you until you fix your issues than it is to let you ruin the game for 7x more people than just you
This isn't true. It's because the drops happen twice in a row, or within 2-3 games. But ONCE in a day of playing. So that equals 2 'quits' in a day of playing, and I don't play every day. That's far less than an actual rage-quitter, match quitter, etc. I usually don't quit matches where it's 3v4, which happens all the time, or even 2v4 most of the time, or 1v4 sometimes. So no, I haven't been 'ruining the game more than usual', and I feel like it was unfair of you to immediately make that assumption about me.
I stopped playing the rest of the day as soon as the ban crap happened because /I/ don't want to play with the connection dropping either. I feel like it's a console/update bug or the local halo server, because this never used to happen to me, and my service hasn't changed, it's completely solid. Nothing else in the house drops, and I have a lot of devices just like everyone does, speed/bandwidth has been fine. And even in the game between the two games that dropped today, there were no lags.
So yah, I don't appreciate being accused of 'ruining the game more than usual' for 2 drops, after which I didn't play for the rest of the day, and at worst, maybe tested to see if it was working again after the ban lifted, though, I'm not even sure if I did that.
