This is a great thing
Though it sucks for joining matches that are already in progress and you're being bombarded with scorestreaks as soon as you spawn.


It doesn't stop the problem. It just adds new ones.

People will still quit. The ones that won't just go AFK and s***.


Imagine me just writing This for like an encyclopedia's worth of words.

Halo: Reach tried this and A) people still quit and B) people would just go AFK.


I hated Reach for all sorts of reasons. None of them were equal to this nonsense though.

It literally caused me to quit playing entirely. Penalize that, Bungie. LOL

It's for the greater good. And I realize that sounds really stupid, but if people actually stay in games and take their beatings then the whole "join game down by 100 points in dom with blackbird and loadstar in the air" won't happen nearly as often. Not to mention it hopefully will cut down on the host migrations per game...i swear i average 4 a game... :(

I quit all the time and nothing happens

I will continue to do so


I played for about 4 hours after the patch dropped early this morning.

I left quite a few games in progress, and at least 2 as host. Nothing happened.

That doesn't mean it isn't real though. Maybe I just didn't hit the limit.

Watching tom(hate house) stream and he backed out of a FFA game and it popped up with a message telling him that if he did it'd put him on probation for a minute lol.

Only problem with probation is that if you make the host ragequit by kicking too much ass with the KSG, you end up hit with it. xfd

Otherwise this is a pain in the ass for solo players who don't PTFO and a boon for people who play in parties where half the time the enemy team is completely different by the end of the game.

Pushing probation on every playlist does seem a bit heavy-handed though. Probation and stat-based matchmaking are huge changes for CoD. 3arc are subtly but surely attempting to reshape CoD.

I got the quit probation "warning" earlier, so I stayed in the match, then left after we returned to the lobby. Then I found out I was locked out for one minute lol

i quit 3 matches in a row in tdm cause the team i would have been on were down by 40+ points in all 3.

got probation for 1 minute.

how can treyarch honestly expect people to join a match that lopsided when thats how their servers are and not leave.
