In my few months of X-box live play, its been pretty darn nice overall, but with a few cons. The biggest of these imo are:
#1- the first one should be obvious, ragequitting. Lame.
#2- Waiting for the other player to pick first. How sad is this? It happens so REGULARLY that its practically a given that AT LEAST a few who do it are reading this message. To those guys, just pick whatever mainstay team you practice! If your skills are worth a damn to begin with, chances are you’ll be able to put up a respectable effort in many instances no matter who the opponent has. Waiting for them to pick first is a newb-level of pitiful.
#3- “humping” the players dead body after winning. Wow this is actually worse than the first two. Seriously, anyone here who does this can suck a hard one. I don’t care how good you are.
On a side note it is hilarious how occasionally some players will be doing the hump motion, but be no where near me. Like they are humping the ground LOL!
Simple ways to fix this? For the first one in a future update, just award the win to whomevers connection remained on before the quit, as they were likely winning. Sure there might be some instances where the connection honestly crapped out, but thats kinda rare. In 96% of cases its a ragequit, simple. Marvel online is kinda sturrborn, no matter how bad one players connection is(constant character teleport), it usually stays on till the bitter end and won’t disconnect.
Second, blind picking! HD remix has this, why not marvel?
Third, simply disable the option to regain character control after a match has ended. No big loss here nor does it effect the game, and too many abuse it.
Fixing these three issues alone would make an already great X-Box live experience even better. Anyone else have other ideas?
