Holy ****. o.o I never thought this day would come. This suddenly makes me a very, very, VERY happy man. <3 This is going to be so kickass. xD I wonder how many people are going to stop playing, because they can't get points anymore. And damn, losing 500 points. >.> I hope I won't get in a very, very laggy match that feels like you were playing on the wifi with BT3, lol, cause I disconnected in that match, we hardly moved. >_>;

Anyway, this is such good news. <3 I'm glad they did something about it. See people, complaining works! xD

So MalvinGT, with this news, does that mean you'll be back playing ranked matches or?

The only thing missing is they need to clean the ranking... Too many people boost.. i know they need proof first tho...

No idea Damaras. I dunno if i should go back. I mean if they get in there hands the booster and Ban them there is a window for me to comeback...

That's true, at this rate there's no point for you trying to reach nr 1, since you just won't beat the boosters. Well, let's hope they'll catch them then and yeah, they should reset the ranking. Would be much better.

Then I at least have a chance at keeping up with you guys. xD

This is great news and all, but...

What about those who are truly disconnected? How can they tell between a DCer and an honest disconnect? 500 points for a first offense is a harsh statement, especially with the potential of getting false positives.

I would have bumped that number up to 3 per week or something that allows for laggy matches. Not knocking the move, but rather the implementation of such move.
I guess it's not an official post unless the word 'noob' is included...
NOOB! (fc's in profile)

Whats a "booster"?

#10DamarasPosted 12/4/2009 10:10:34 AM
I never had a disconnection, unless the power would go down or something. I'm not sure how they'll handle this, but i'm sure they figured that there are real DCers too that can't help it. >.< They'll probably make a penalty for those who either leave the game or just press start and go to the main menu.
