WOAH- The penalties for leaving a game are idiotic

33 replies 35 views Edited Nov 2, 2009
I'm sitting here watching all the Dtoid Double Downs, and my girlfriends sitting to my right playing Uncharted 2.

So, the cat starts jumping behind the entertainment center, and unplugs the PS3 lol

She boots the PS3 back up, and she gets a message that she'll lose 40,000pts and a rank penalty.
Pretty idiotic, ND. I love you guys, but you need to think this stuff out better.
I'd honestly hate to think of U2 Multiplayer as Halo anyways.
Who cares if someone leaves? Especially if it wasn't their fault!

Penalties are pretty stupid. But you can thank all the whiners around here who whined until they put it. -_-

I was shocked to even see the message, lol
Is that what the update was for?

So in your point of view, ND should have to spend time debugging or tweaking the gameplay based on, "What if's" ? Not too logical or practical for the general public.

Oh God.. it's happened lol

Damn you Halo! Now you've ruined great games like Uncharted with your competitiveness!!!

Ok people, we all know ND made a great multiplayer component, please don't ruin a good thing by taking yourselves seriously.

 ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What the hell did I miss?

When did this section become over run with competitive jerks?

They should have just stuck with co-op, if this is what is discussed about Uncharted in the future.
Trying to be a smartass because someone posted a funny story.

Stay classy, trolls!

I thought that if you quit once you only got a time penalty?  Honestly, if you guys have quit or lost connection at least 2 times then you should probably give it a break for a a while instead of risking it again

We wouldn't need penalties if people wouldn't quit constantly if things are not going they're way. Its a bad deal sometimes but just deal with it, I'm probably going to be de-leveled when I go back on because I've had to two dropped games and had the PS3 freeze. Thats not typically a problem for me but I believe its from the Halloween patch which should be fixed by tomorrow. Although all this loss of cash is contradictory to the double cash weekend. Uh yeah ND can we have a double cash weekend sometime soon that doesn't suck?
