Dragon Ball FighterZ will now be temporarily or permanently banning players who disconnect from online matches on a consistent basis.
According to an in-game message, developer Arc System Works will be placing temporary one-week bans for players who deliberately disconnect from online games and could possibly turn into a permanent ban if done often enough. The full message:
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 one week).
(During this restricted period, players will still be able to play 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.
The message gives no information about how many times one can rage-quit before receiving a ban, or how the system will differentiate between deliberate and accidental disconnects.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The next downloadable content character, Master Roshi, will become playable sometime in September.
