Why Was I Banned???

    • Level   1

    My account name is Piston597 and I have been banned on Halo 4 for some reason. I don't know why I have been banned it makes no sense at all. I called the xbox live support and they told me that banned can result from "leaving the game early" or "accidently betraying someone" and both these cases are unfair. If I paid $60 for the game I shouldn't be "forced" to stay and if I accidently betray somebody for high-jacking a vehicle and running someone over in the game when I have no control over the vehicle so that is also unfair - and there are countless betrayals that occur by accident all the time. 

    Also this has been my first "apparently accused offense" so I dont see why it says Im banned and not suspended? it also says account not validated when I begin halo 4 now.

    I want to know the reason for my banning and how long its going to stay. It keeps saying that I have left matchmaking too often and can't play for 60 minutes and it wont go away and its been 4 hours... Again its not an offense for leaving a game... this is supposed to be for fun not forcefully being required to play a game... also who can I contact over the phone for further info if this happens again.

    Well, you see, I didn't pay $60 so you could run me over without penalty.


    You also don't get booted for one betrayal, so you're leaving something out. As far as quitting games, you're welcome to quit a few but you're not supposed to keep quitting.


    My suggestion would be to leave the game alone entirely for an hour and see how that goes.

    They want to see me shot up, locked up, encage me...

    I come back bigger... stronger... and angrier.

    I'm glad there's a ban in place for quitting too much.  That has already been a bane in all games on xbox live and for once they're doing something about it.  It's not like they're banning you from enjoying the campaign which is worth the $60 on its own.  So the moral is, stop quitting or don't play on xbox live.

    Oh man I like that. Blops2 has a 1 minute wait penalty for quitting every game so this is good imo.
