Probation every time I start BO2?

Black Ops II Technical Support

I am having the same issue. Every time I turn my game on I have to wait out 5 mins of probation. Last night I ended on 3 full games of Hardcore Domination. This afternoon after work, PROBATION!

I don't quit games often, I dont get kicked often.

Gamertag Chrismang85 on PS3.

Please resolve this issue asap as this is becoming very frustrating.

Nobody will buy activision games in the future if they all experienced what I am. I won't buy games if I have to be on probation for 5 mins everytime I try to play regardless of leaving early or getting kicked.

I'm being treated like a misbehaving child and don't appreciate it one bit.

I am having same issue.  I serve it.  Turn off the system turn it back on and... probation again.  I don't quit games.  I get kicked for friendly fire (why no richocet??).  I serve the probation (which again is stupid) and the next time I log on, another probation awaits, which makes it hard for me to play, because if I get one boot for friendly fire that night, I automatically get probation.

HI MrJubilee,

What platform are you on? Just to clarify, are you on a cycle of probation (probation time expired while in-game but you are still getting the penalty) or experiencing probation that does not display time remaining (blank text box with no time indication).

Thanks ^AH

Hey there MillYinz,

Can you also clarify the issue?  The same questions that were asked for MrJubilee.  Blank text box displaying no timeframe remaining or looping cycle of the Probation Penalty?

Thanks ^AH

I'll admit me and the GF play split screen and team kill time to time but we been doing back to back probation. So 10 minutes. Then it glitches where if we were going to bed we would always quit the game correctly, and come back on the next day with back to back probation again with 10 minutes! This is crazy and has been happening a lot lately. It does it when we play wireless or wired (don't always play splitscreen). Really ruining my Double Xp eperience lol. I know someone is going to just say then don't team kill!! Hard not to sometimes. Our gamertags are Toxicbullets814 and Clichemelody in case you need to review them..

Thanks for clarifying!

It sounds like you guys have multiple instances of probation, possibly even double what you would normally have, due to the split screening.

Jump in and out of MP until you get a message for probation, and wait it out. Then jump in and out, and wait it out again. Do not exit or close the game, or close the message, let it count down.

If you do that til you receive no more messages for probation, you should have served all of them, and be able to play normally.

Also keep in mind that if you TK often, you'll incur more probation sentences, so try to keep it to a minimum in Hardcore.

My cousin has the same problem. Just about every time he connects to BO2, he is on probation. Once he is off,  we can play 5 - 10 games playing Hardcore Dom and the first time he gets kicked even if it is someone runs in front of him and he doesn't team kill on purpose. It is not hard to do in this mode, he gets probation. It is an ongoing joke because he can't get away from it. The same thing can happen to anyone else, even during the same match and nobody else gets put on probation but him. He has to have some kind of glitch or flag on his gamer tag.

it happens both wired and wireless

Bandwidth while in black ops 2 in the option, shows 10000 kb which I believe is the highest connection possible (visibly) in that page. I have friends and family that only show 720 - 5000 kb and never see this issue.

Hi ChonnyMc,

Thanks for your post.  Although your cousin may not intentionally team kill, if it occurs it will still count and he will eventually get kicked from the match.  Getting kicked counts as leaving the match early which can result in the probation penalty if it happens frequently.  Make sure he remains in-game until the probation penalty time expires.  If he leave the game or shut down the system before the time has expired, it will kick in the next time he tries to find a match.

Thanks ^AH

This is ridiculous you want to put us on probation for leaving a game but ppl can hack it with no problem this is stupid I will never buy another Activision game again this is the dumbest rule I have ever heard and why kick us out for a kill on a team mate when they run in front of us and why make it where we can kill them I believe we uave all right to back out of a game if we want to we shouldn't have a probation for it.
