I think he meant that the true nature of HC is that you just don't have to worry about enemies, you gotta worry about teammates. You are looking for realistic and you got it. If you went to a game and your team is a bunch of random people off the streets, you will probably end up with people who don't know how to play, get enjoyment from harassing you and whatnots. If you go in with a team of people you set up with people who you know are good, then you will not have to worry about this as much.

But its not. The nature of HC is supposed to be more realistic where you can die from a single bullet, not a nature of you have idiots chasing your grenades.

Its also realistic to die from friendly fire as well

I get that its realistic to team kill. Nature of people not paying attention means theyre likely to run thru a line of fire at the wrong time. What I DONT think is that we should get punished because of it. Its 90% unintentional.

So would you prefer to have it turned off so that anyone can quit because you got a good run on scorestreaks or teammates can shoot you with no consequence, just because you are not teaming up with a decent team?

While the probation system is not perfect, it was put in place because of stupid people who think stats are God and it is funny to troll. Every rule will have good and bad consequences but I think the good consequences way outweigh the negative ones.

In MW3 you had richochet.  So everytime that you shot your teamate (or blew him up) you died.  In BO2 you don't die but you will get kicked from the lobby if you do it too much.  It's the nature of 3arch HC games.  Most people in HC appreciate that you have to be more on point in HC.  It's part of the mystic.

So Ive been trying to do some clan challenges, namely the one for today which is total flag captures. After attempting to play core, I discovered we can (from what Ive read) play HC and have the challenges count. This lead to some heated issues and some team killing during HC CTF games, both intentional and unintentional. After three games in a row I got probation for leaving the game early, with the warning saying I should stop quitting out. I figured ok cool 5 minutes. Ill live. Then the timer reset after the inital time. A little irritated, I waited impatiently. A few games back in, some idiot runs in front of me while I shot, and two seconds later also chases down a grenade I threw, and wham. Another probation.

I get the whole probation idea to cut down on people trying to leave the games, but this is borderline bull.

How is it bull?

You are warned, you know that HC is not merciful and you kill your teammates (purposely or not HC doesn't care)

You do the same, repeat and question why? Cmon.
