    Dashboarding

    Camaro68

      So when is IW ever going to fix the dashboarding?

      Here's a clue for the losers that do it - No one cares about your worthless stats!

      It's happened more times today than most. I think some of it was XBL messing up, but mostly not.

      If you're losing horribly, just leave through the menu.

      And if anyone ever runs into the clown that has 42 wins in a row, just report him. He's probably one of the losers that I keep running in to.

      Dashboarders are losers, you're stats are a lie, and you suck! And no one cares how good you think you are!

          Happens to me sometimes. I can ve going 20 kill - 5 deaths and all of a sudden the match will end.

           

          Either the host is a little ***** or there are server disconnections or something else.

            it's part of the game. Just like quick scoping and campers. If I have to deal with the last two and am told to suck it up and quit crying about them. Then everyone crying about dashboarding needs to suck it up and quit crying about it. It is just as much as a skill as QS and camping.

                      So you're ruining the game for many players with your dashboarding all just to see how high you can get your KD and WL? Way to go coward. Just another scumbag is all you are and ever will be in this life.

                          Wow!  You take this gaming thing seriously!  I have never gotten upset with a game ending to host leaving (CoD4, W@W) or dashboarders.  Because gaming isn't my life.

                            not really im onps3 and we have dedicated servers so it doesnt harm anyone. When i leave it doesnt affect the game.

                            p.s plz dont start a console war

                                Wait, what? The PS3 isn't using dedicated servers for Ghosts, it's the same Listen/P2P system everything else uses.

                                 

                                Whoever convinced you the PS3 had dedis was completely full of crap lol the only dedis that do show up for some are on the One and PS4, and only for certain locations in the US...

                                 

                                You're telling yourself you're doing no harm because you're believing a lie either you manufactured to justify your behavior, or someone told you and you blindly believe anything random idiots tell you.

                              I agree. I was sick of K/d wh*res bragging about their stats and telling me that I suck because my K/d is 0.82, so I actually made myself a spare account and used it for 4 weeks (just to test my theory). I chose the good ol' sound wh*ring class which came with a free grenade launcher on my Remington. After 4 weeks of playing (and my K/d kept increasing) I left that account at a 1.95 K/d, not sure about w/l?? I believe if I was using a run of the mill class setup I would probably have a legitimate 1.10 Kd maybe?

                              I then went back to my main account and picked up where I left off with having fun, even with a 0.82 K/d.

                               

                              With my simple test theory in mind, please spare a thought next time you poke fun at stats and  think stats are accurate!

                               

                              Note: I run a very successful 10 man clan that has won every clan war so far. Were entering the first Diamond Division Clan war =D

                               

                              Edit: I did not Dashboard to manipulate stats during my 4 week trial, I simply went try-hard lol

                                If you're losing to campers or QS, then that's your skill issue which, with a bit of practice, can be overcome

                                 

                                Losing because the host cries and rage dashboards because of his lack of skill is not something geniune players can overcome.  Hence it's not the same.

                                  that is a good point dash boarding is in the game.. my thoughts

                                   

                                  if players stop playing like a-holes.. camping, QS, using the bulldog while barricading themselves with IED's all over, maybe they wouldn't leave.. nobody is entitled to accept other ways of gaming, so why should a players stats get affected by scrub players? dont blame the dash boarder, blame IW and the community who chooses to play that way..

                                   

                                  yes there are some players who will do it even if there isnt any bs in the game, and it sucks, but again, its in the game

                                    Dashboarding is a skill?! That is quite possibly the most ridiculous comment I've ever read on these forums!

                                     

                                    As for the dashboarding problem - It's very annoying when the host does it and I lose all my points AND get a loss to my name. Dedicated Servers would fix the problem but I've no idea what's happened to them

                                    please dont do that, i know a bunch of people who get legit streaks of 100 plus...

                                     

                                    dash boarding IS cheating, but like you said, no one cares about their stats, so just ignore them. although IW could easily fix this, i dont see why not

                                        i agree with this. as i am completely against dashboarding and have always wondered why people do it. most people like high stats for bragging rights, but what are you bragging for if you faked you stats? laggy game? quit i do if its too laggy. your teams bad? either stick it out or quit and take the loss.

                                         

                                        as for the 42 win streak thing im on like a 380 winstreak right now. its not that hard, i play in a full party and if no friends are on i play free for all because team based games with randoms almost always result in a loss no matter how good i do.

                                            Agreed.

                                             

                                            Whilst I usually play pub matches so don't often have massive win streaks, I have a KD in TDM of 2.7 (2.35 overrall)

                                             

                                            Last night I had one of those games on Stonehaven where everything I did just went wrong.  I still went positive (think it was 14/12), but obviously not near to what my overrall KD suggests I can do.  We lost the match and afterwards two guys on the oppo suggested they were going to report me as I've clearly boosted or are a dashboarder as I suck and could not of got that KD any other way.

                                             

                                            When I pointed out that, if I was either of those things, why did I stick around and play out the game when things were not going my way, they shut up.  You should never assume a cheat, just report it when you actually see it!

                                            I mention 42 wins in a row as one of the games I was playing in had a team member on the other side with 42 wins, and a K/D in the teens.

                                            The team he was on was losing and suddenly there was a "Lost connection to host" error.

                                            If I could have remembered his screen name, I would have reported him as suspect.

                                              How about the fellow i saw the other day with 900 streak?  I mean i don't report people for anything unless it is obvious hack, but 900 streak can't be legit.

                                                  ive mentioned this before but ill say it again. 900 can be legit, quite easily in fact. all they have to do is play in parties every time they are online against a public lobby and then u will just destroy them pretty much every time.

                                                   

                                                  im aware that between 1-900 they probably still do dash in some cases but u wont kno for sure unless u see it happen. again tho i dont see the point in these people getting a win streak that high if they do dash to obtain it because the only real reason they want a high win streak in the 1st place is to brag with friends about how high it is. this to me is just stupid because its just a fake streak.

                                                   

                                                  i myself didnt play bo2 but ive played all the others so my references are usually back to mw3 and ghosts. i bring this up because on mw3 i had an 818 win streak and it was 100% legit. i never dash and i never rage quit. i always stick out the match until the end no matter the outcome. how did i get it that high? i was always in a party of 5 or 6.

                                                   

                                                  one night we played with 4 because i was bored of only being "allowed" to play if enough friends were on and we finally lost. we all did good, but not our greatest. we had split-screeners that managed to go a combined like 3-45.

                                                    ive gotten a legit 900 streak, i know it was infected and party play only but it was still legit with no dashboarding. besides if youre worried about your streak and not your w/l ration you can just back out and not dashboard if youre going to lose and itll keep your streak.

                                                      I can easily get legit 50+ streaks when playing with my clan... also, when playing free for all a loss doesnt take away your streak. So you telling people on a thread to report anyone who has a good streak is ignorant.  I have games 10 KD+ games where im doing very good and they dashboard. Its annoying, but it happens. Just got to get on with it and stop moaning

                                                          I didn't realize that a loss in FFA doesn't take away your streak. Does it still count it if it's a win? If so, that doesn't make any sense.

                                                          And I'm "moaning" because there is a way to quit the game without screwing everyone else up. Use that instead of the dashboard method.

                                                          Also, playing with a clan is different that being in a public room. I seriously doubt you could get a 50+ streak playing without the clan. I've gotten as high as a 13 streak in public rooms, but sooner or later you end up on a team that isn't very good.

                                                          So excuse my moaning - I'm just sick of selfish people trying to protect the "all-so-important" stats.

                                                                  Also, I have a 60MB connection so it's hard to find a lobby that's not lagged out. Once I find one, I like to stay in it for a while.

                                                                  If you don't like how the game is going, then leave through the menu and quit being a jerk about it.

                                                                  • Re: Dashboarding

I dashboard, but for different reasons, no point going into them as people will start whinging and saying things that are assumptions, but I don't have an amazing KD, so I could care less about my W/L ratio.

I'm not going to go into a long winded rant. I'm just going to say that people don't want a challenge anymore. People can't handle someone possibly doing better at something. Plain and simple, there's no reason to rage quit/dashboard.

If I just exit and return to lobby, she fiddles with it and then enters another match and messes around in there, which is annoying to other gamers. I don't know if you realise this, but having a child who is decent as hell with an xbox controller is terrible. She fiddles with my loadouts and all sorts.

Personally, I think there is no good reason for you people to be having such a massive whinge about it, but then again, I'm an idiot haha

Basically you care about your stats and just wont admit to it. You think your stats mean something more than someone who dashboards when in truth your stats mean just as little as their stats do to begin with. Apparently I can read for I understand what your rant was about. You think your stats are better because you don't dashboard. When really no one's stats mean a damn thing when the game is off or out of the console. Leaderboards mean jack nothing and never will in this game. Except to those that try and take them serious where as a lot of players never will. So anyone that gets upset over someone leaving a match for any reason is just as bad as the person that leaves for what ever reason. It is just a game, not real, not important, not life and death. Unless your a wannabe mlg hoping to get picked up by some mlg team.

                                                                                    As the match was just finishing I heard them say 'Time to dashboard, I don't want to ruin my stats'.

                                                                                    Why the hell should this team care about their stats if they are inaccurate?!?! I do believe there are plenty of people out their who have a respectable set of accurate stats. But I've noticed that those who say things like 'My K/d is better than yours' or 'Your K/d is poop' then they are the ones who either dashboard religiously or play dirty.

                                                                                    By playing dirty I mean Shield/ Danger close/ C4/ Strong arm/ Fast hands or even the good ol' 'sit in the corner with a MR and thermal' class.

All of the above people should quit the game imo because that is not playing to get better, they are just trolls or k/d wh*res

If a person plays grouped up (which is common), it is extremely easy to win 40 games in a row. 100 games in a row isn't out of the realm of possibility either if you keep playing your favorite game mode grouped up. There really is no matchmaking in this game that makes it difficult to do so.

People who hate it, dislike it, it's not because we are obsessed with our own stats. It's because the process of dashingboarding  completely wrecks the CoD game.

That way you will not receive a loss against your record

I also stay in a half eaten match as long as there's not too much of a gap between the loss and win.

This is not a sport, never will be. So the stats really mean nothing at all. So no players don't have to play by your rules or anyone else here's rules on what is fair or not, or legit or not. It is a game meant for simple entertainment. Not a life and death issue. Complaining about it will never change those that do, and no punishment ever will stop it or slow it down either. This is a simple fact about online gaming and always has and always will be. They do not have to take the loss like a grownup when the game throws them in to a match that is just about over or the score is so far lopsided that there is no chance for a win just to make those that were on the other team happy. Players of this game do not have to care what anyone else is thinking or feeling ever there is no rules of fair play and sportsmanship in this game or any other game online. As long as they are not modding, hacking, they are doing nothing wrong. They do no need to live up to your or anyone else expectations/morals/standards of how they should play ever. Until those that complain about it pay for the dash boarders/quitters; internet, console, electric, housing, food, and game they have no say in how someone else chooses to play the game ever.

Even then they still will to get out of a match they don't like, Or to leave when they have need to do other things, regardless if players like them doing it or not. They are not going to stay just so the other players have more fun, they are not going to back out just because that is the ok method of leaving, for they don't care and don't have too.

People who dislike dashing, they don't dislike it because they are worried about their stats. BS on your part. We dislike dashing because it wrecks the game.That's it.  I can be in the middle of a game, winning, losing, doing whatever... and then the game just crashes. Done. I have to then spend the next 3 to 4 minutes logging back in and in some cases, even spend longer trying to rejoin up with my friends/group. The more people who employ dashing, the more instances like this occur. If it happens five or six times in night, this is close to 30 to 45 minutes of me having to waste my time, my fun ruined, simply because some a-HOLE can't use the features already in the game to quit.

Us? We have no way to stop people like you from dashing. We just suffer crashes over and over (i've seen as many as nine in one night)

Furthermore, to throw it back upon us, that WE are fussy about our stats is just sheer idiocy on your part. Not only for the reason i outlined above, but also for the logic you employ. We aren't allowed to fuss over our stats playing the right way.... but somehow, you and your dashing asshat friends are allowed to fuss over stats? It's ok for you and your dashing bros to be fussy? That's what you are saying. Because let's be real here, the primary reason people dash, is to PROTECT their stats.That's why you and your bros dash. You claim it's about not liking being thrown into a game in progress. Ok? If that's all there is to it, then why don't you just quit via the in-game menu? Well? Don't answer. Rhetorical question. We know why. Because you are protecting your stats. You are a KD% wearing fa***t who wakes up every morning obsessing over 0.1 pt increases or decreases in your KD, to compensate for your failures in your own personal life. That's why you are on here endorsing it.

                                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                    4. Furthermore x 2. You tell us to 'stop taking the game so seriously'? Are you and your dashing friends taking it a bit to 'seriously' when you shut down your entire XBox machine, in some cases pulling the plug, do all of that just to make sure your KD ratio doesn't drop down 0.01 pts? The fact that you and your friends go to such lengths to fuss over one stat really says quite a bit about your personality disorders.

                                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                    5. To say it is the dashboarder's 'right' to play how they want, to dash, is just wrong on every account. What's the pretense there? They paid for the game, they can do what they want? That's your logic? So i suppose a typical CoD Dasher can now go to a movie theater and talk on his cell phone the entire time? He paid for the movie, it's his 'right' to do as he pleases in the theater? That's your logic? Someday when you wake up and move on into the real world, you are in for an awakening. Society has many rules, some unwritten, that we need to use to co-exist amongst each other. It's also known as common courtesy, something you and your bros are haven't quite got a grasp on yet.

                                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                    6. Last point. to say it can't be stopped is wrong. It can be. IW/Treyarch could end it tomorrow if they so choose to. It would end tomorrow if they simply tacked on an extra +50 deaths on to a person's Kill/death total every time a disconnect happened. Easy to do. They already add a +1 to a person's loss total, so adding a +50 to a death total is doable. 80% of the sudden 'crashes' that happen, would end overnight. And as a double bonus, the whole game-in-progress problem would probably be cut by half too. Less dashing, means less games in progress to join (or at least get people to quit normally)

                                                                                                                     

                                                                                                                    Now will this be done? Probably not. Why? Because most CoD players are solo players. And IW/3A developers are completely scared of doing ANYTHING to annoy or affect this group of CoD players, especially anything to their KD ratios, as messing with the CoD KD ratio is on par is the like the pissing on the bible at a Southern Baptist Church. You just don't do that, sales might dip. And as everyone knows, at their core, the powers to be at IW/3A aren't interested in doing what's right, they are only interested in getting into little boys pants to extract every last dollar they can get. They are whores. Do what's right  and sell 22 million units? Or be whores and sell 25 million. We know which way they will go.

I do agree, that if everyone dashes, then the game would be broke, but there are bigger issues that are effecting  the game than dashing.. I experience someone dashing once every 2 or 3 days

Since it would just mean a quicker start to another match with potential to earn more stats sooner.

You never will have any way to stop dashboarding as that is a console feature and no dev will ever have control over it ever. Short of player owned servers where they ban everyone they don't like that didn't play their way.. which leads to nearly empty servers all the time.

                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                          3) Yes you are being whiny brats about a video game that was meant for simple entertainment and not life and death as so many players that cry over dashboarding act. Not everyone dashboards because of stats, some do it when they need to leave to do something more important such as real life. Not everyone is going to take the time to back out, just so someone like you is happy. Nor are they not going to play just because they might have to leave or quit within an hour and that might put them in a match. Again this is a damn game, it is not real life it is not important. The stats mean nothing when the game is off.

                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                          4) I don't shut mine off, or dashboard. I sign out. Lets me back in the game in 1/3 the time a full dashboard does. Only fools dashboard, smart players wanting out of a match sign out. That fact that people like you fuss so much over a game that is not real or life and death show what personality disorders YOU have.

                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                          5) Not wrong, they do not owe anyone else anything ever. If you don't buy their internet/game/console/electric, YOU have no say in how they play EVER. YOU only control yourself and no one else.I do live in the real world bud it seems as if you are the one that does not. For online gaming is not the real world and never will be. It is fantasy, so real world moral/ethics/standards, do not apply ever.

                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                          6)No it cannot be stopped even doing that would not stop it.. Only a fool ever thinks it would. Wrong 80% would not be stopped over night barely 20% would be stopped even with that. 50 deaths is easy to make up, hell even 1000 deaths would not take long to recover from. And IW/3arc will never go that far just to make players like YOU happy because they care more about money than making whiny brats happy that they stopped a problem that is not a problem.

I do agree, that if everyone dashes, then the game would be broke, but there are bigger issues that are effecting  the game than dashing.. I experience someone dashing once every 2 or 3 days"

Would you tell someone they didn't 'waste their time' as they got to see most of the movie? Most of the NFL football game? They got to play most of GTA? Of course you wouldn't. You would be pissed off just like anyone else. You would be screaming for your money back. So why is CoD suddenly exempt from the above criticism? Why does CoD get a 'special' pass in that it's game endings are perfectly acceptable to crash now and then, due to douchebag players?

CoD gets a pass on this, because a majority of the player base does it to boost their KD ratios. That's why you see such an endless parade of excuses coming up on posts like this. All of these people are dashboarding KD boosters.

What other game (in which you compete against other people) can you get to make it so your bad scores never happened? It's the proverbial 'free lunch'. Your good games get to count, and you can make it so any bad result never happened. Win/'win for today's 'EVERYONE GETS A TROPHY' generation.

It doesn't finish. It never will.

What if you just paid $4.50 for OnDemand movie, watched 82 minutes of it, and then close to the end, the movie 'crashes'. You can't get it back. You can't reload it. It won't come up. Are you going to brush it off as no big deal? Maybe you brush it off the first time. Maybe even the second time. But when it happens five to fifteen times a week, are you going to fluff it off as 'no big deal'?

I have played thousands of matches.. and i cant tell you anything about them.. they are all the same.. I have seen hundreds of movies.. i can tell you about them from beginning to end.. why? because they have substance.. my last game i couldn't tell you what happened.. i couldn't even tell you what gun i used.. and i played last night

Since there are no rules against quitting a match at all even during clan wars. In fact there are no rules against quitting at all for any reason. So they are not going to be punished nor do they deserve it since they broke no rules.

So no rules were broke, so it is not cheating. You were robbed of nothing.  You cant be robbed in a video game for it is not tangible. It is not property, you don't own anything in it. In fact you don't really even own the game or any rights to it at all. You don't deserve the points if the game does not finish, no matter what you feel or think.

And since no one really knows who is host they probably figured this would stop players from doing it, but really does not. And that is where the flaw of a singular stored data on one host comes in to play. if the data was stored on two players, one of each team(One true host, the second just a data store replicator). Would not matter if the host dash-boarded. During the new host selection it would pause the match(temp send to lobby), choose the other player with the copy of data(resume game), then assign a second new player as a data store as well(send copy while reloading match). Unless both players dashed at the same time, it would not ever completely end the match. For there would always be someone with the match data that could be used to restart the match as the new host. At end of match it would poll both data stores, compare stats, then upload which ever had the most recent time stamp. Effectively the problem of dash-boarding and match ending removed. Plus would end the ability to stat pad as well. Since there would always be a copy of the stats on one team or the other at all times.

It is not a sport, nor will everyone that ever plays it, see it as such and thus play with any resemblance of sportsmanship since they don't have too. Is it fair.. no.. but can anything be done about it while using listen servers.. again no. Only full live stat tracing such as done with dedicated servers can ever have a chance to prevent the loss of those stats or points. Or another idea I had and posted somewhere else.

It is simple truth, even if you do not think was possible I have seen teams that were at 160 to 40 come back and win. I have seen tdm matches where the  other team was 4 away from winning and the other team was down by more than 10 loose because the other team made a quick comeback. So it can happen. So no score was truly earned since the game was not truly finished to decide who the true winner was.

People will find any excuse to report people these days. Feel free to report me if you ever run into me and my high win streak. Make sure you send me a message though saying you did so I can send one in a week or two letting you know I'm not banned. Yes people who dashboard suck, but there isn't much you can do about it, even the probation system in BO2 didn't really fix it.

Since it would just mean a quicker start to another match with potential to earn more stats sooner.

Not everyone dashboards because of stats, some do it when they need to leave to do something more important such as real life. Not everyone is going to take the time to back out, just so someone like you is happy.

We all realize that once in a while people have to leave. But let's be honest, most all dashboarding happens due to players NOT LIKING the result of a match, and NOT WANTING their bad score to count. Don't be a fvcking idiot. You know why people dash. You make it out like thousands of people out there suddenly can't control their bowell movement and can't wait 34 seconds to go to the bathroom, so they have to unplug their machine. That's not reality.

I really don't think you do as you have no clue what goes on in this game. A dasher who has 25,000 kills and 12,500 deaths (2.00 KD), would see his KD ratio drop from 2.00 to 1.85 instantly adding on 1,000 deaths in case he dashed. It would take him a couple HUNDRED "30-15" games to get his KD back up to where it was at, around 2.00. A couple HUNDRED games. At 8 min a game, we are talking like 15 hours or more of gaming.

Not that it not go to score or to time. So no I am not wrong.

                                                                                                                                                       

                                                                                                                                                      2) not being obtuse at all, YOU have no real idea as to why they quit. YOU only assume you do. Were you at their home when they quit to know exactly why? NO.. so again not wrong in what I said. To assume otherwise as you did makes you the idiot and moron.

I am not defending it, just pointing out that there is nothing that will ever stop it completely no matter how much YOU or anyone else wants to think or wish or believe. Nothing the devs try will stop it, or even slow it down by more than a minimal margin ever. Even BO2's probation did little to slow it down. It was a joke and most knew how to get around it in ways that it did not affect them playing at all.

You are a faceless person, not someone they care about or have too. Just because you chose to play as such does not mean everyone else has to or will ever no matter how much you think they should or try to say so. Common courtesy has no place on the internet where everyone is faceless and anyone can be anyone or anything they want. I could be any age or either gender and you would not really know. No matter what my profile here or other places  may say. It all could be false. It is not like real life where you are face face with the person and know them on a more personal level even if still just an acquaintance or competitor in a sport. Online who you are means nothing to anyone else but you and the few others that thing that internet is truth and believe what they read or see or hear on it as if it cannot lie.

                                                                                                                                                       

                                                                                                                                                      5) Yes I do play CoD, I have played everyone since WaW and MW. I am even max prestige in BO and one other of the games. 15 hours of gaming is nothing if you really cared about stats, could be done over a weekend. So not a big deal if they don't do it often. And not all that dashboard do it all the time. For those that did not, it would be no issue to recover from.

It does not allow the data to be transmitted allowing for a host migration. I know this for I have done in numerous times in every game and it always forced the other players back to the lobby for it ended the game.

Or is it single player dashboarding? If the host dashboards and kicks everyone out of the lobby then theres a problem but if it was just one or two people who dashboarded and left players on the opposing team then it should be fine right? but the entire team leaving and causing the forfeit timer to appear is annoying especially when the you are playing search or if it doesnt put new players into the game. but in ghosts you can back out and not dashboard to keep a streak, although you keep your kills, deaths, and points earned but you still receive a loss in your wins/losses totals though so it affects your w/l ratio.

                                                                                                                                                                        The above is not necessarily true. You don't need someone's profile to stay connected in order to assign stats to them. We know this isn't true, because prior CoD games (under Treyach) did assign stats to a person if their profile was disconnected.

They should make it so even if you do quit, it still scores your points, k/d, w/l. That way, dashboarding would become useless and stop the games ending.

I don't care about punishing players, and I don't like how people were given probation for quiting. I really think people should be able to leave without having to wait 15 minutes to play again.

I just think there needs to be better matchmaking so it can still find a server even if the host quits.I think the match bonus reward should actually mean something. Perhaps some exclusive titles or patches that can be bought with a certain number of games completed. The match bonus just doesn't seem to be enough.

I carry a 3.5 k/d and I never dashboard. My last five games can sometimes be a roller coaster.I think my friend might dashboard for his win loss because it doesn't make much sense to dashboard search when the stats are very minuscule. Then again maybe that's all he plays. He did it all BO2 and Ghosts. Dashboard is a bad idea anyway because I think you can probably ruin your disc tray by doing it so much.

Here's an idea, if you don't want people to quit and potentially cause you to not earn yet another win, try letting the other guys kill you on purpose. If you're already ahead by say 15 / 3 why not let the other guys have a few kills? Artificially keep the game close. Seems like an interesting challenge, kind of like getting gold camo or something for those of you that always win. How much can you let the other guys get kills and still win? You can always gain it back again, right?

To me, it doesn't make sense taking two losses for the same game. Luckily, this scenario is pretty rare for me.
