They are the worse on this game then I have ever seen before. Today, in attempting my 20 ranked Score Duels, I played Online on Hard guitar. THe first couple of games were fine, but at one point, I had 6 people quit on my in a row.

It seems that if a person misses 1 note, or falls behind by 3,000, they automatically quit, ending the match. Now here's the only part that bothers me....

What fool thought it was a good idea, to not reward the person who doesn't quit with a win, and experience towards TrueSkill and not penalize the quitter in ANY way?

I don't mind it in other games, as I know the other person get's something negative for quitting, but this game doesn't see the difference...

like seriously, wtf?

You arenít alone, no one likes quitters. A great example is these 8 exact same threads that I found by doing a 4 second search for "quitters":

Hopefully this will be addressed in RB2's online play/achievements.

Don't worry, I know there are others. I've been here for long enough not to be a retard.

Yes Gears would be annoying because your kills didnt count in that match if people quit.

I hate it when they quit out right as the song ends, not giving me the fucking win!

I think I've given bad feedback to just about every person on Rock Band.

sorry for going off topic, but im going to agree on the gears matches. especially when its a very long match (19 rounds, etc.) and one team is dominating against the other.

Down, Dex. ;)

Yeah, looking up old topics is great when you're trying to get a question answered...but no question was asked in this topic. There's nothing wrong with topics made just for the sake of chatting.

I was going to post a thread exactly like this, as I was going for my score duel achievement yesterday, and just about everybody quit. An achievement which should have taken an hour and a half took 5 hours.

Talk about bad losers. I never quit, what's the point. There may be legit people on the TS leaderboards but I doubt it.

We should have a name and shame thread for quitters, anyone who quits when losing, in the last 5 seconds of the song, should be put on the x360a wall of shame. :p

Another obvious thing, WHY do they play on expert if they can't actually do well on expert, then quit? Annoying.

I think a Wall of Shame is an excellent idea. There was one guy in the Achievements thread asking if someone wanted to trade Tug of War with him. Someone posted quickly that he was a quitter and I get the distinct impression he didn't get what he was looking for. :p

That's like me on some songs, do I quit? No.

It's incredibly annoying, but most of the time, people don't quit out on me. The odd one or two occasions out of 20, yeah, but I had almost no trouble playing on expert guitar for my wins.

Its not always people who arent good. I played an expert drum SD against Gurnkiller. I won and he quit at the end.

YOUR KILLS IN GEARS DIDN'T COUNT OF SOMEONE QUIT?!?!?!?!!?!?!!?

Why did no one tell me this D:>

</off-topic suprisedness>

It does drive me crazy; I actually managed to get 10 consecs in GHIII thanks to repeat quitters.

I have a one win streak in tug-o-war. I'm scared to move on and end up losing or having repeat quitters...seriously, that is the highest streak I can get :(

The achievement is written like that for a reason. It's win 5 straight, not win 5 out of 25 matches. Or else thats what it would say. I'm glad to say that I got my guitar hero streaks and my Rock Band streaks, without quitting a single time, and I think thats the way it should be done.

Quitting is the most selfish thing you can do in an online game. Whether it's Halo, Gears or Rock Band for that matter, you are screwing over X amount of people just for yourself.

Same happens to me. I can't go into a single competitive match without the other person bailing when I gain the lead

I'm not sure what's worse, people quiting at the last second or the ones who use the GHIII guitar so they can keep talking throughout the whole song.

It's too bad Rock Band doesn't keep a visible track of your win-loss records and quit % like most other games do.

I would say the ones who quit last second, I just mute them if they talk

EA is notorious for putting half-assed features into the online-play areas of their games.

The same problem you're having is the same problem I had with Army of 2.

I was so pissed at EA for ruining my Army of 2 achievements that I snapped the disc in half rather than trade it in at a gamestore.

EA needs to do 1 of 2 things.

Either 1. Stop putting out half-assed non-sports titles. Just because the game isn't related to a major sports franchise does not mean it should be crap.

Or 2. JUST STICK TO THE STUPID SPORTS GAMES AND LEAVE SHOOTERS & OTHER NON-SPORTS TITLES TO PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING!
