I’m writing this wall post to vent my frustration at the amount of people I’ve met who are AFK on Halo: Reach this past day. Today, 95% of the games I’ve played in have contained at least one person who has been AFK for the full game. This is clearly frustrating because if you’re going to be busy for a game, then just go back to the lobby, simple as. They also don’t seem to care if they get their credits and rank reset.
This is why I propose that an AFK Rehabilitation Room be added to Halo: Reach in the upcoming update. If a player has been AFK for one game, they will be automatically teleported to this room. The room would be set on the destroyed planet of Reach and would require the player to go through a series of teleporters, kill a group of unarmed enemies, and destroy a vehicle (In a random order) within one minute.
If the player SUCCEEDS in completing these three tasks, they will be allowed to continue playing with a warning.
If the player FAILS to complete these tasks within one minute, this will count as one day banned from Matchmaking. The player will then be asked to complete this task again.
For each time the player fails to complete these tasks, one more hour will be added to their ban time. So if the player fails to complete the tasks in 24 minutes, the player receives a 24 hour ban.
This method of banning players from Matchmaking would be a very good and strict way to stop these AFKer’s once and for all, as the current method just doesn’t seem to work at all.
Let me know what you guys think.
