Gamebattles Disputes, are they fair?

July 14, 2012 in GameBattles

For the first time Team CODBUNKER had a Match dispute from a Gamebattles match. There have been many matches that we possibly “could’ve” disputed due to opponents “skype’n” but we just took the losses anyways. WHY? Because since we just started this GB adventure our FOCUS is on competition and to be the best; therefore, instead of “PUB” matches and tons of “SCRIMS” we felt it was best to feel the REAL competition by just jumping in and competing (as our Spring season shows at 1-22). But IMHO you play VERY different when there is something on the line, and it is a REAL competition, not PUB or SCRIM. This is how we want to become good……..COMPETE (We knew we would take our licks, but we also are learning VERY fast)

Now back to the dispute. We played a GB variant SnD match vs “swahhhhh”. I sent friend request to the leader, we waited 12 minutes, (you have 15 till a forfeit) then finally another swahhhhh member sent friend request, which I had to ask for an invite to match. I got there and none had mic’s on I tried to communicate to them that my team could not join and could we go to a Free for All (this is normal with conx sometimes) We all got in, and then swahhhhh did not ask or text if we were ready and started the match, they did not even ask if we wanted Top or Bottom Team (Non host team gets to pick) I texted about the mic, got a smart ass remark, and realized this team was nothing but trash, so decided to back out and just dispute it. Then as you’ll see in video’s below they admit to talking on the phone to each other and using Skype. These are CLEARLY against the rules. Listed below is the link to the GB rules, as well as cut and paste of the violations……violations of CHEATING which GB states:
“We have a zero tolerance policy for cheating. Teams caught cheating, “glitching”, or abusing in-game mechanics in any way will be removed from GameBattles.”

Somehow, we lost the dispute by this response:
“GBADMIN

This team CLEARLY was CHEATING and GB has a “Zero Tolerance” for that!
swahhhhh should be “removed from GameBattles.” Not CODBUNKER with a loss.
Please watch video and share this post in order to help right a wrong.
TKS for your support………..
It’s not about the loss, it’s about the PRINCIPLE of the Rules and sport!!!!!

MW3 GameBattles / MLG Video Tip

July 10, 2012 in GameBattles, How to, MW3

TeamBunker’s 1st season doing GB’s didn’t go the “best” but something we have learned the ‘hard way’ is that a TEAM needs to set aside EGO’s and COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE, and operate as a SINGLE UNIT. In this set of clips we won; however, the way we communicated and operated, I would not have felt as bad if we lost when not communicating. What makes for frustrating GB’d is not doing the above things and losing, winning and not doing the above items, does not feel as good either. So if you are trying to better your team and any of the above is an issue, TRY them out, YOU WILL BE SURPRISED!!!

CODBUNKER’s Personal Opinion:
You can take a group of “Slayers” (Let’s say in Public Matches they have 3.00 KD’s and 3.00 Win ratios) and put them together to vs a Group of “TEAM” players that may only have 1.18 KD’s and 1.08 win rat’s and I will ALMOST guarantee that if the “TEAM” players operate as a unit and communicate, they would beat the “Slayers” most of the time (if not ALL the time) This is how IMPORTANT TeamWork is IMHO ;)

What say you?
