Getting pretty sick of idiots blowing up vehicles and screwing over their own team. And especially the derps who overcharge and stunlock allied Mantis. Why the hell did 343 disable friendly fire, but leave in plasma stun?

I haven't encountered this yet, but it happened all the time in the other games in the series. All I can recommend is playing with friends. I know it's not always an option, but it's the only way to avoid the selfish idiots of the internet. I agree though, there's no reason to keep friendly fire EMPing. The thing is, if enough people complain, I genuinely think that 343 would remove it. They seem pretty open to feedback.

I had a guy on my team. Dr Deadpool1337, who just followed me around in the Mantis, twice, stun-locking me until the other team killed me. Then he sent me a message after that said "Problem?".

So I avoided him for unsportsmanlike behaviour, sent him a message saying he might grow up one day, and blocked him.

Six can attest to me jumping in front of his shots while he was scoped in on Hemorrhage, but yeah usually griefing is really annoying, especially if you're not playing with friends--it's just a dick move.

The gold standard of griefing is definitely the Roomba video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUPzN7tp7bQ

A lot of that stuff is stupid, but to me forcing your teammates to answer trivia before they play they game transcends mere griefing into something altogether more fun :)

Tell me about. I recently unfriended some people once they started stat-padding in a griffball match.
