Rage-quitting is a terrible practice that needs to stop, but unfortunately frustration can sometimes get the better of us and sometimes just turning off the computer and quitting the game seems like the best thing to do in the moment. However it can ruin the experience for other games, and this is something Bandai Namco wants to avoid.
Speaking to the folks at GameSpot, the game’s designer Katsuhiro Harada revealed that the developers had a plan to do with rage-quitters. “You can’t keep someone from physically pulling out the LAN cable, so the only thing you can do is make them not want to do that by having some kind of penalties. Although we can’t really go into that at the moment, we do have penalties planned for that.”
As to what exactly this measures are, Harada revealed that he cannot share the details at the moment simply because he doesn’t want the hackers or cheaters to start finding ways around them. “We don’t want to go into a lot of detail right now because the hackers and such will already start about thinking of ways to circumvent that. But we do have plans to implement some penalties.”
We’ve seen other developers introduce various features to curb rage-quitting, whether it be demoting in rankings, being forced to play with other rage-quitters, or being banned temporarily, so it will be interesting to see if Tekken 7 will be able to come up with a different solution.
