This is why I'm playing score attack any more. Firefight usually ended up with me leading Elites to where idle players were, and watching them die repeatedly. I actually have several saved videos (at least 15) of people just not playing, or quickly coming back to the game when they get attacked (I guess they check for a vibrating controller), only to idle once they 'save' themselves.
My favorite video is one where 2 players idled, while one quit. About 5-7 minutes in I just let several Elites repeatedly kill the two idlers. It's over 10 minutes of them just being killed, while I walk around the map, taking in the detail of it.
It's too bad Bungie/343/Microsoft never did/does anything to punish these people. They completely ruin the game, which makes me not play it, causing me to sell off my copy and not be too interested in future titles.
