    no idea..i doubt it...but you can probrably get banned if you standby alot...i dont think you can get banned for boosting because the other people get lagged out before they realise what him them.

    It is possible, I don't know if it has happened yet but it is obviously POSSIBLE but will they do it I can't say for sure. I have heard reports of others getting host banned from certain gametypes already so it is whether you want to believe that or not.

    Maybe if host was strong as Gears one. You can tell a Gears two host but it isnt as beastly as one. If it was Gears on then DEF. Also, the game has been out for 3 months and I've only got put into one Standby game it really isnt that common. [For me atleast]

    Well, I can say that it isn't an account ban, because I have 6 accounts, and all of them are not able to get into WINGMAN games...

    maybe the host ban is not with your account... maybe its in the xbox reg number or with your IP

    another options may be.

    a) too many people doing force host
    b) some kind of new protection for people who get host alot but get complains /bad rep alot too.

    dunno. but i cant get a wingman game anymore.

    Most likely it is a rare occurrence of non getting host, however if you were to get host banned it would most likely block your ip and possibly your account as well. That is why sometimes you need to keep refreshing matchmaking by either restarting the search or start searching in another playlist then switch back. However if they are host banning which I highly doubt they are they would simply block your ip from their servers.
