A ban is the denial of a person or group's access to a service or resource. Bans are typically enacted by people in positions of authority in response to rule violations committed by an individual. The ability to ban is sometimes satirically referred to as "the banhammer. In the Halo community, bans are administered by Bungie staff members when users break the rules for in-game conduct. Furthermore, the term "Banhammer" takes on a new meaning in the context of Halo gameplay.
Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It only takes a minute to sign up. Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search. Neither my friend or I have ever been banned.
Most of the time, a player violates the Code of Conduct purely by mistake. We want our players to have the chance to change their behavior, so the length of a ban is based on the type, frequency, and nature of the violation. In most cases, Custom Games are still available. If a banned player uses alternate Microsoft accounts to circumvent their ban, that violates the Xbox Community Standards.
Greetings fellow Forum-Goers. I understand that this quit ban still needs discussion on how it works in matchmaking to make the best experience for everyone. Please note that this thread has been modified to fit the Xbox. Here is the Bungie. And I completely agree with this statement.
