This morning's Killer Instinct update added a new method of punishing players that rage quit. Those who have a disconnect percentage of 15% or higher are sent to a "rage quitter jail" for 24 hours in which they can only face other players who also inhabit the jail.


It has been reported by numerous users of the Double Helix Games forums that some players have been wrongly cast into rage quit jail as a result of their opponent disconnecting. One can identify if they have been sent away by the jail bar icon that replaces your custom icon next to your gamertag.
