Alright guys, (and girls? maybe?) let's talk about dashboarding for a minute. We've all seen it, and we all hate it equally. The thing is, we've all probably done it at least a handful of times. Unfortunately, it seems like this game is just as bad (or maybe even worse) than any other COD game to date. I know I've rage quit before, but still...wrecking another team and then getting booted back to the main menu sucks. So I figured why not try and get a better understanding of the beast. If your main dashboarding reason isn't listed, feel free to post it in a comment. And let's remember, this poll is 100% anonymous, so you're not proving anything to anyone by lying. Swallow that pride and be honest.

I just dashboarded from a game I joined - the enemy team was up by 20, I was the only one on the team, and they called in a K9 Unit.

I wouldn't have a problem staying in a match like that, but how is it even remotely reasonable to give me a loss? At least by dashboarding I don't have to eat the deaths, too.

So, to the people to who posted about never dashboarding ever...so seriously...you're saying that in the history of COD games, dating back to WaW, you've never "dashboarded" or quit a single game early due to anything at all? I just feel like that's really hard to believe, but props to all of you if you're really being honest.
