I like it when there is an enemy in a corner, you spray 4 bullets at him, the third bullet kills him, the 4th bullet kills your teammate that just spawned in the exact same spot. grrrrrrrr
3 times in 15 minutes? Heres some ideas
1. Random nades are bad, as are random rockets and noob tubes. If your team is rushing dont even use them, its not worth the TK.
2. Drop all AOE killstreaks, again not worth the risk especially when lower level stuff like the guardian and sentry are more effective for longer periods of time. Especially when protected.
3. Trolls have picked up on shooting betties and clays, If you see this then dont use them. On the smaller CQB maps it may not be worth placing them at all.
If you choose to use indiscriminate killing devices and scorestreaks them you need to understand the risks.
Seriously? Control your fire and check your targets and you shouldn't get booted. I know man ppl who play and never get booted. I have never been booted while playing Hardcore and get a fair amount of kills. You have to be more cautious and call out any AOE kills streaks. Oh and as for the Name plate thing, every team is designed to look differently so pay attention to the look of your team and you won't have to worry about a lack of nameplates.
Probation is annoying, it annoys me. But its meant to be annoying so its doing its job in a manner of speaking.
The rules of HC are simple and apply equally to all. Intentional or accidental TK is the responsibility of the shooter not the target. TK and its probation.
Threats to sue, are hollow and not taken seriously. As a result the person making the "....pouts......I'm gonna sue yous....." threat looks foolish, their POV is disregarded as a result.
Suggest you put a well reasoned case if you feel strongly and ask for support. If your case is sound and your views are shared and supported by the HC Community you never know....you may just have been the catalyst for a positive change.
People! don't make the OP angry! look at his name, he will explode when he is getting angry.
I know I will not win. But I will at least get it recognized on tv and local media.
Can I have your autograph when you do?
All I play is hardcore, and have had my share of TK's. Yours isnt the only one im seeing posting this, but I can tell you I have been booted many of times for it, and still have yet to see any probation. I play with groups and that may be why, but it doesnt happen to me.
To be honest I just wish they would return to ricochet so trolls kill themselves, can't even throw care packages at the start of HC SnD rounds anymore because teammates stand where the package falls, killing themselves and you.
I have been put on probation 3 times in 15 minutes for team killing. It isnt intentional. Sometimes your teamates just run into you bullet spray. This is an erratic game. These things happen.
If I keep getting put on probation , I am goin to sue trey arch. I know I will not win. But I will at least get it recognized on tv and local media. Im tired of not being allowed to play a game that I paid for. There was no warning label on game stating that arbitrary rules would be included in this game and that at their whim, I wouldn't be allowed to play. Had I known about this feature, I wouldn't have bought this game.
Trey Arch knows once you break the seal, you cant return the game. This is horse ****. Plain and simple horse ****. I have to abide by a rule that I didnt know existed. If this probation thing isnt deal with. I will go on craigs list and create warnings and rants. I will let people know the type of crap they have to deal with after shelling out 60 dollars for a game. Shelling out money for xbox live, and then their internet bill, just to not be able to play their game !
Sure you wont win but you will definitely lose thousands of dollars just taking it to court. THEN Microsoft will sue you for breaching their contract as well as Activision.
The fact that you didnt know this rule existed is your problem and no one elses. You agreed to online rules when you put in the game. Besides you did get a warning at some point but you ignored it.
Its funny how I play Hardcore and yet have been put on probation.
