Re: Free losses FTW!

Sep 3, 2012

I have one that's hard to beat.

 

I used a tournament ticket, went 18-3 and my team of randoms won against a party of four. At the end of the match, I see the results but all of a sudden my screen goes black earlier than usual. Guess what... removed from the game! The match was over, I saw the results and everything was fine. What on earth happened there? I got a loss and no tournament points or anything else... nothing at all but a free loss. At this point I have about 100 totally undeserved losses.

 

One "quit" (whether you leave the game or get kicked, removed or whatever) should be free, just like it was in Uncharted 2. Too many undeserved losses for all players at the moment. Sure, no one needs to care about stats, but if we have them they should at least be correct.

What can you say, I guess I'm popular. :smileytongue:

 

Here's what bugs me so much: months after stats penalties for quitting were implemented, I still have a 3.41 KDR. Now, as all of us (except ND) know, you can still boost your KDR by signing out via XMB, but you'll still get a loss. Since the stats-boosting got "patched", I have signed out only once, during a match laggier than the average lag I get (and it takes a really laggy person to make me ragequit).

 

I'll take a loss to a good team, I'll take a butt-kicking to someone who isn't feeding their connection with a rotten potato. I'll continue playing the match even if I'm losing horribly (lEvilDeadl saw that part of me last night). Lag does make me quit out, though, and even if I'll take a loss while doing so at least the BS deaths I took in the match aren't marked on my history forever. I'm not a complete stats freak, but it does bother me when someone else's laggy connection results in tons of unexpected instant deaths which I keep on my history forever, so I'll sign out in that case, but it has only happened once.

 

Taking this many unfair losses which I can't do anything about implies I obsessively boost stats, as far-zan pointed out. High K/D, low W/L? Probably an obsessive stats-booster. I don't like people thinking that way about me when it's not true. Sure, you can argue that my stats aren't legit because of that one sign-out (which I'd have to disagree with you there). I admitted to that incident to be honest with all of you here. Admittedly, not one of my finest moments while playing Uncharted 3.

 

And that explains my frustration with all the losses I've been taking to neglected technical issues lately. But hey, at least we're getting colors. smh

120ish so far without ragequitting. I'd like to see someone with more free losses.

This literally just happened to me, except I didn't use a tournament ticket.

3TDM, My partner and I are up 19-low #- lower # and I have a hammer aiming at the back of someones head. Next thing I know the screen goes black and I get marked as a loss along with wasting a ticket on my score of 14-3.

 

plunder, I'm working hard on getting the idol to our chest and our score is 4-2, I pick up the idol in front of the chest and walk towards it, next thing I know my screen goes black.

 

There were also times where I stared at the ring for literally 15 minutes, only because I didn't wanna lose my ticket. Only to finally be put into the game with like 2 other people who were as persistent as me. Then to get kicked 5 seconds after the match starts!

Don't you even! You think you die, and that's that?! Huh?! You think you die an' everything'll be sugar and rainbows?!

# NOT scam.  You know why? Because you're smart enough NOT to buy new tickets. -_- Don't complain about something that you're not even getting cheated out of, beacuse you didn't buy more tickets.

This is how I feel after I'm winning a match and then get randomly kicked. -.-
