If they patched that then people would just pull the ethernet cord instead.


You do realize that pulling the cable all the time causes mechanical stress in the RJ-45 connector, don't you? Not to mention that most people prefer WiFi, so it wouldn't be possible in that case.

 

Turning on/off the console or ejecting/inserting the disc causes mechanical stress as well. If people want to risk breaking their console, it's their problem.

 

On the other hand, XMB sign out has no penalty whatsoever in the mechanical parts of the console. How is this balanced? There needs to be a drawback.

I read tap's idea about patching XMB sign outs.

Now why isn't that happening? What reason could you possibly have for doing an XMB sign out on purpose?

It took them 7 years to implement a trophy pop up notication on/off toggle.

 

Need I say more?

I agree that it isn't fair. It's dumb. I'll admit, when I run into a big party who all have 100,000 kills and 15,000 deaths, and I have no clue what foreign language they're speaking, it can be a little discouraging. But I tough it out anyway. Sometimes they win, but sometimes they don't. I think most people who hate po5's so much lose against them before the match even begins.

@tap I guess I shouldn't expect too much on a console with free MP. Oh well. At least it's free.

 The fact that you think ND cares about how we feel is hilarious to me. LOL. Especially on Uncharted.

I never said anything was fair or unfair. I said that I personally don't mind taking a loss, if it will help someone else. It's a dang vidya game. If adding another 1 to the loss column will bring happiness to another person, I can personally justify the hell out of it for myself.

But, no. It's not fair. It's one of those life handing you lemons solutions tho.

I know you dont mind, but what about the others who do mind? Shouldn't ND make it so that it doesn't happen than make even more ways on how to get a free loss?


No one really cares about wins and losses. Half the time you get stuck with braindead F2P players so even if you own, your team might bring you down. Everyone is used to losses more than wins unless you're always playing with a PO5. It wouldn't matter if whatever one of you suggested was to come into play and cause more losses. Even if you're good you can still lose so the win/loss thing is pointless.

Bang Bang!

Half the time it's either laggy Brazilians, Puerto Ricans, Panamanians, Chileans or Peruvians if they're laggy. If they're not then it's usually the Italians (#ShoutOut) or Spaniards. I believe I'm the only person of a Greek-Cypriot background who's ever touched Uncharted, let alone be good at it.

 

Back to the main point, whenever I see a PO5 and they're speaking Spanish, which I can tell somehow even though I can't speak the goddamn confusing language, I leave because as soon as I kill the laggy, tagteaming, power weapon spamming, RoF noobs they'll start calling me a **** since it's their favourite word. I've actually sent messages to Spaniards to ask them to stop calling me that word all the time since it's really annoying. It comes out of their mouth like every two seconds.

 

If they're a **** of Americans and have an annoying accent (Texas Cowboy (Sorry Silver Smiley Tongue), Laidback Louisiana) and they can breach my mute button and call me a **** every two seconds then I leave. If I want to be insulted, I'll go to the CoD forums, make a thread called 'CoD sucks, Uncharted rules' and let the insults flow free.

 

Edit: language

U--J

Lol, if only I could speak the language Smiley Tongue

It's so confusing to me so I never learnt!

But looks like we've found proof that there are Greek-Cypriots playing Uncharted. Whooooo! Smiley Tongue

 

And I didn't know you could speak Greek Smiley Surprised
