Nintendo “Will Punish Splatoon Rage-Quitters”


Those in possession of review copies for the upcoming Splatoon 2 have discovered that Nintendo will be punishing players who consistently leave online matches, a rather shocking development considering Nintendo’s reputation for maintaining a child-friendly atmosphere that caters to casuals.

A cheeky message that appears after leaving a game before it concludes, apparently found by those committing the heinous crime in a recent beta “splatfest”:


Naturally many are applauding Nintendo’s “harsh” decision as it helps eradicate children who are prone to throwing tantrums from ruining the matches of those likely far older than the game’s target demographic; successive rage-quits will however only result in a temporary ban from online play for offenders.

Splatoon 2 launches for the Nintendo Switch on July 21st.

    There is one way that sucks though. As being on the crappy end of the internet connection, I've been disconnected from matches numerous times and lost rank because of that. Connection issues or so it says. So that's going to kinda suck for people who get disconnected not by their own control.

    Yeah you're in control. Get a better internet. If not, play single player until you get one.

    FFS.. is it that hard to think about it? Splat2n STILL has single player mode and clearly you just wanna grief people while acting so innocent saying "duhh it's not me gaaaays is my inernet"

    if you see someone choking to death, do you sneer "get some oxygen"?

    If you see the same person choking on the same thing for the 50th time, do you still think it's their first attempt at swallowing it?

    If it bothers you so much that other people randomly disconnect maybe you should take a step back and rethink your life.

    If it bothers you so much that you got blocked from online because you're a worthless cunt shitting the game up for 7 others, maybe you should step back and rethink your life.

    Sometimes "get better internet" means "move out of the state you're in". Some areas they don't give a fuck how much you're willing to pay, they just don't have it.

    This has been coming for a long time in the team-based FPS genre, just strikes me as odd that a casual shooter of all things would be the first. In the old days when Deathmatch was more popular this was fine. These days gamers are lazy and don't want to focus on individual skills (and thus hold their own) so they play team-based games to let others take up the slack. Unfortunately when half the community does this, just one player leaving can severely unbalance an entire game. It is actually even more common in casual shooters like TF2, since more hardcore players in less casual-oriented games (Quake and CS for example) are aware of this and are better at taking up the slack.

    Hah, then even more of a reason for them to punish people that are not-so-casual about playing online.

    Even Nintendo has already done this with Smash Bros. for Wii U.

    Good. If the game is for children, this is a very, VERY good way to teach them some online etiquette. I applaud Nintendo's decision. Let's see how they implement it.

    YES, I feel part of the reason kids are so aggressive online is lack of responsibility for their actions. Hopefully this helps.

    To be fair though, in the cases of shit gotta go, you shouldn't be affected by the matchmaking lockout since you'd be gone during the lockout time.

    Not to mention they have a counter for the times you leave before locking you out.

    If you have other things you need to be doing before a match ends, you shouldn't be playing in the first place.

    The "if this keeps happening" part of the message strongly suggests that it will take more than 1 or 2 disconnects to get a temporary ban. Just how much unexpected stuff does life throw at you while you're playing?

    Sometimes live comes at you fast.

    Maybe if life keeps coming at you fast then at that point your life it is inappropriate to be playing games no?

    If you have shit internet perhaps you shouldn't play games in which other's enjoyment rely on your presence no?

    If the game you are in sucks then perhaps you should just finish it for it sucks less over all for everyone no? Perhaps even get good? Maybe the fault lies with the server/network (their end) in which you might consider playing a new game.

    Whatever the reason there isn't a good reason for habitual leavers. Yes those that do it infrequently that is fine, things happen but if you are consistently doing it AND on top of it this drags down the experience of the other paying customers then I think a punishment is welcomed.

    If others enjoyment rely on me not having fun, then fuck other people. If I play a game and it stops being fun, I quit. Why should I waste my life so a bunch of faggots can have fun?

    How dare he comes to play with his beggar internet or with some petty life issues. Preposterous! Off with his head I say

    I totally agree with you. To bad most people don't have the common courtesy to keep their problems to themselves.
