Earlier: Early this week Bandai Namco added an in-game message to Dragon Ball FighterZ that detailed a new punishment system for rage quitters. Though who disconnect from matches early will be punished with a ban from online play that lasts about a week.

However, those who dare to continue the bad behavior become subject to potentially being banned for life, and the community has had some interesting reactions to this bit of information. So, today we're asking: Do you think Dragon Ball FighterZ's permanent ban for serious rage quitters is too harsh?

"If a player is found to be repeatedly engaging in the above behavior, the restrictions mentioned above may become permanent for that player," the in-game message states. "We will continue to do what we can to ensure all players have an enjoyable experience with the game."

Bandai Namco is aware that players may be seeing disconnects unintentionally and recommend that users check their internet connection if that's the case. This punishment is meant to target those who are deliberately pulling the plug to avoid losing or simply to cause disruptions.

It's worth noting that someone who does get hit with a ban would still be able to play Dragon Ball FighterZ offline. All online modes will be inaccessible, though, which is a tough pill to have to swallow when it comes to a permanent ban.

There's an argument to be made for both sides as those who are rage quitting excessively — and ignore the first one-week warning — probably deserve to be barred from online play forever. On the other hand, never being able to hop online again does feel a bit extreme.

We have provided three different options for you to vote on below, and you can select one of the three. Let us know what you think about this new rage quit punishment system.
