Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

Probation?

 

What game are you referring to, you haven't said, it might help!?

Re: Probation message

I received the probation warning yesterday due to connectivity issues, AND after the most recent COD BO 2 update.

When I logged on tonight, it first made me go through 5 minutes of probation; I played a game halfway through, got kicked out, another 5 minutes of probation (which I completed), then an additional 5 minutes of probation.

I don't know what to do.

I also got the probation message.  I am not very happy, infact I am very upset and angry about the situation.  I keep trying to join matches of friends and it tries and is unable to join.  The first warning I got was after i tried joining a friends game and it gave an error message, then a probation warning.  Now I have to wait 5 minutes, for what?  I know, for playstations ridiculous setup.   I am very upset and steaming right now.  I am almost thinking of taking the black ops 2 game and smashing it in half.  What system has the right to do that micromanaging?  What rules are going to be engaged next?  Why is there even such a restriction as probation.  This black ops 2 doesn't even have the best graphics.  The best 1st person shooter game is modern warfare 2, and i may be playing that game again soon.  What is playstations punishment when their playstation network go down leaving users unable to play?  Should we give them 5 minutes probation?

The probation is being imposed by the Activision servers, not the PS network.

This is completely ridiculous! I've have backed out of games when people are clearly using cheats, racial slurs, and profanity. Yes I know I can turn off the inviduals but it doesnt address the amount of cheating. So I get put on probation for backing out a couple of games with good reason. No sweat SONY! I can buy a f-ing XBOX.  You've lost me as a customer!!!!! I will never buy another Sony product again.

Sounds like you guys are using cheats or jailbroken consoles to me.

If you are I don't feel for you at all.

Did you copy your game to the hard drive?

Even though the Probation thing is also on Xbox?

 

And that cheaters are more prevalent on Xbox?

Probation In The Instance That You Got It Is Because You "froze " but not because you "froze" once but 10 time in a 1 day.

its my understanding that they have this in the game to stop people from "dashborading" to make their stats appear higher than they should be.
