Why did this get changed from a timeout to an instant kick?!?!? I used a carpet bomber run that I got from a care package and I killed my teammates and I was kicked from the game. My friends have been getting kicked from this score streak as well!! This has got to be the worst update ever. If you want to change the killing teammates, bring the voting back. This is just ridiculous
Don't use carpet bombs. Don't use any bombs, mortar strikes, or grenades unless you know without a shadow of a doubt where every one of your teammates are and will be.
Or, kill 3 of your teammates and get kicked.
Read the post scrub. It was from a care package. Emergency air drop to be exact. And considering you can't see what score streak you're calling in, it's almost impossible to tell what you're calling in. Why even post something backing up this retarded choice to add an instant kick without reading the entire post? Make yourself look stupid
So let me get this straight. From what I've been reading with all you idiot that think this 3 tk's and your out is ok. In what way is it ok? By your logic, your are saying because w are hc players we can't use HALF of the scorestreaks available to us. Wow, that makes sense. If your area playing with a full squad, then yeah, it's no big deal. People will actually listen when you say stay out of this area so you can call in your strike. But not everyone plays with full squads all the time. Playing by yourself sucks now. Nobody plays with mics, and if they do, the game chat don't work anyways. When you play by yourself, it's extremely rare to get on a team that actually listens. Most people just run around aimlessly with no care in the world. Making it impossible to enjoy the game to its full extent. Everyone saying, if you want to play hc then you need to control your fire. Shut up. That's dairy said then done, when there are people just running all over not playing as a team. You throw a grenade and your teammate run into where you clearly threw it. Sorry, but your guys logic on this is completely retarded. People don't listen or can't here you all the time when you make callouts for scorestreaks. Why should we not be able to enjoy the entire gameplay because we are HC players. And no, I will no go to core to "enjoy the whole game", I shouldn't have to. There are better ways to punish people for accidental tk then just getting the boot. It's to easy to do in hc.
The timeout was nice. Or make it ricochet after 3 kills. Or better yet, let's go back to halo 1 days and make it a vote after 3 tk's.
It's "dumb" because it punishes bad decisions?? Sounds legit.
Just because you're bad at something, doesn't make it dumb.
That entitled attitude of your generation is pathetic. That's not how the world works. You'll learn eventually .. Maybe...
This is the way hardcore has always been why is it that you're just now complaining?? Oh right.. cause you're new to the mode. If you don't like it, go back to chasing dots, needing a map to tell you where enemies are, magic health fairies, and needing 6 bullets to the head to put a man down. Where you can blindly throw grenades and blindly drop scorestreaks to hopefully get you a LUCKY kill every now and then. You like to play that way, that's fine, you don't see the hardcore community asking for changes to core game modes right? Follow our example.
The simple fact that it has always been this way does not make it an intelligent way to handle team killing. Because the kicking is indiscriminate and in most cases punishes the team more than the player, it is not ideal. For exmaple, if a teammate is shot while charging a grandade around thre other teammates, it will kick the granade user for a completely illegit reason, quite likely costing the TEAM the game. This is a lose/ lose situation.
Furthermore, it does not show any awareness of how the game works. Hardcore is not some elite class of players that are screened before playing. Anyone can join a game. Therefore, you can have some 8 year old doing things that no experienced player would, constantly putting himself between the teams bullets/ granades and the enemy, and causing players to get kicked for no good reason whatsoever- again, this punishes the team more than anything.
And this leads to another point that I do not hear mentioned: Trolling. I have heard many say that they are so happy that kicking is back because now they dont have to get trolled by people team killing. Well, now all someone has to do is walk in-front of a teammates fire on run towards a granade, and, in theory, he could straegically kick the entire team. And he could go on doing this indefinitely. (Wouldnt be a terrible way to protest the utter stupidity of this team kicking system, actually).
Finally, there are certainly better ways to accomplish the same goal. Using a voting system is probably the best. You could also do a hybrid of team kill count and voting- so someone would need a miminum number of team kills for them to be elegible for vote kikcing.
And since its aparently so easy for the developers to change the way the game functions with their updates, then why dont they try some new ways of doing things and see what leads to the most fair way of doing things that causes the least unncessisary damamge to the teams chances of winning.
The current system is not going to lead to awful, careless, trolling players not playing because they are tired of getting kicked, its just going to ruin many good games for no good reason.
Instead of saying that its the way its always been and go back to core and all that other silly nonsense, why not consider that there may be a better way to do things.
