This counts against you. I'm a relative newbie (level 9) and have had issues with my pc locking up on me. After hours of research, cleaning, and updating everything I find out it's a problem with the "Gateway" laptop I have. Power does not properly distribute when plugged in, but does just fine when on battery.
The best I've been able to find out is this system is weighted against your total games played so those of us newbs w/ few games played are SOL. It skrews newbies over hard. I currently have a fix for my problem. Though, last night I got excited playing in a tougher game with a friend and forgot to disconnect my cord... result? crash and a 3 day ban.
I logged back into the game, as I always have each and every time, leveled up to catch up and we won the game... does any of that matter... hell no. This system doesn't ban you until after the game is over. I believe that only in one case did my team loose a game due to my crashing the other time we lost and I crashed my team was way outmatched, loosing in kills better than 3 to 1.
The system is also a power unto it's self, making it impossible for GM's to help newbies or anyone out. I am reporting this horrible game mechanic on a few different sites, and labeling this game as "non newbie friendly"
The system is understandable, although flawed. However, the inability or unwillingness to help a newbie is UNACCEPTABLE!
P.S. I've been gaming for 22 years and have never experienced anything like this.
