Probation system flawed

Call of Duty Black Ops II General Discussion

Probation system flawed

The probation system has a flaw in it I think. I played in league play earlier and only left two matches by the normal method, the third match the host dashboarded and it put me on probation for leaving too many matches too often.

So it looks like it not only punishes dashboarders but anyone that leaves the game at all for any reason. Be it the normal way or if they get a host disconnect to many times.

This probation is garbage. Losing host connection and getting kicked back to the lobby is not quitting it's your servers failing and people rage quitting. Treyarch you need to account for the difference between selecting "leave game" and being DROPPED, BOOTED or KICKED. If you cannot distinguish between someone dash boarding mid game and someone unwillingly being dropped from a game you MUST REMOVE THE PROBATION FEATURE IMMEDIATELY.

Try being kicked from a game and put on probation. No rage quits or regular quits to even speak of...

Someone fucked up bad.

though my original post was that it may have been flawed I think it was done to prevent any form of leaving the match. So people could not just sign out or pull the plug and think they would be safe from it. Leave teh match for any reason, you are hurting the other team, so deserve to be punished seems to be the new way of thinking in this game.

The flaw in that logic is that this isn't Halo. Matches can be joined in-progress. So if someone leaves, another takes their place. Hardly ever do matches go lopsided for any extended period of time.

I could understand doing Probation if nobody could join matches in progress. The teams would stay lopsided. But that's just not the case. Probation is a failed experiment that doesn't deter people from leaving matches.

I wonder how long it will take for JeepChick to lock this thread? Just as they have with all the other Probation threads.

The North Koreans could learn a thing or two about censorship from Treyarch.

Expect the same message about multiple threads and asking us to post in those rather than starting new ones... but they're all locked too. I hope the pay is worth the price of their soul.

In norm games people join matches yes, but in league they do not it is locked. I think the problem is how the probation system is implemented between league and non league games.

Though it does not happen often I have seen a few games in hc where the lobby when to a 6v2 and stayed that way and no one ever refilled the open spaces. So it does happen but maybe not that often.

Toward why my post has not been locked go figure. I tend not to rant and scream and demand, and say, "Remove it or not buying anymore", or, "Remove it or seeling this crap game", or my favoirte, "Its my right to do as I want in the game".

I just say what I had a problem with, which was not a direct demand to remove it like so many other posts have been.

I created a thread about the probationary issues (probation for leaving lobbies, losing connection to host, etc), but it was locked after a few replies.

The probation system is great in theory, but in its current state it is clearly flawed. I vote that it is removed until the system is reworked.

The fact that the thread was locked after a few replies shows that they see the issue is being complained about AND IGNORED.  another reason to not buy another treyarch game.
