Bungie Banning Toxic Players From Destiny PVP and Co-Op Modes

Destiny is a great game to play with friends and often random strangers you meet online. However, not everyone you meet online is friendly or a team player. Often they show toxic behavior which ruins everyone’s gaming experience.

So what can be done about such people? Well, how about a ban?

Bungie has decided to improve players experience in Destiny by not only fixing bugs, making strike boss fights a bit easier but also deal with toxic people.

Bungie said they will temporarily ban “a small number of the most toxic players from matchmaking,” due to sitting idle in PvP or Co-Op modes:

Sitting idle in Strikes and PvP has been on our radar for a while now, but it’s become clear that a small number of the worst idlers are responsible for damaging the experiences of thousands of other players.

Bungie further added:

One player not contributing in an activity might seem like a small thing, but it can make a Weekly Heroic Strike unbeatable or make a Crucible match unwinnable. Those little bits of damage to the experiences other players adds up over time.

It’s great to see Bungie taking steps to safeguard the majority from such people. However, they should also do something about quitters,trolls or people who use abusive language.
