It seems that Bandai Namco and Arc System Works are now taking serious measures against rage quitters in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
Rage quitters will now be punished in Dragon Ball FighterZ. In a message in the game (thanks to Lord Knight on Twitter), it was revealed that those who disconnect often will now face repercussions. They will see a one week ban from online play, though they will still be able to play the game offline. Those who continue to rage quit may see an extension to the punishment, including a permanent ban from the game's online modes.
"Thank you to all Dragon Ball FighterZ players," reads the message from Bandai Namco and Arc System Works.
"We will now be imposing restrictions on players who deliberately disconnect during online matches. These players will be restricted from entering online lobbies for a set period of time (about 1 week).
"(During this restricted period, players will still be able to play the game in the offline lobby).
"If you are unintentionally disconnecting several times, please check your internet connection settings.
"If a player is found to be repeatedly engaging in the above behavior, the restrictions mentioned above may become permanent for that player.
"We will continue to do what we can to ensure all players have an enjoyable experience with the game."
It was recently revealed that Master Roshi will be the next DLC character for Season 3 of Dragon Ball FighterZ. The character is expected to release sometime in September. Roshi will be unique from the rest of the game's roster as he will not have a super dash. Two more characters will follow Roshi in Season 3, but no details on who to expect and when they will be released have been revealed.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.
