Ubisoft to Implement Rage Quit Penalties in Next For Honor Patch (VIDEO)
People who rage quit can sometimes put a damper on players’ experiences. For those who aren’t in the know, rage quitting is when a a gamer becomes so angry that they end up leaving a match prematurely. This can be often caused by lack of skill or determination on the quitter’s part, cheating by the opponent, game bugs, or just bad luck. Associated symptoms may include screaming, insulting others, and damaging peripherals. Thankfully, game developers have begun punishing those who leave a match early, and according to the most recent Warrior’s Den stream, an upcoming For Honor patch will be implementing such penalties.
The weekly livestream offered a few details about the impending For Honor patch, but did not say exactly how they would be punishing rage quitters. However, they did mention that they will know exactly when a player does so, even if they use ALT + F4, which exits the current window and effectively disconnects one from the game. After community feedback, and players crying out that it is way too simple for opponents to exit matches early, it’s good to see Ubisoft tackling the issue head-on. You can learn about the patch and more in the video below:
Also included in the update will be the game’s first round of colorblind options. It seems that this will be more of the groundwork that is needed for such choices, but it is a step in the right direction. No specific date has been given as to when the next For Honor patch will arrive, but it’s looking like it could appear as soon as next week. It will first make its way to PC since the certification process for console takes a bit longer. Stay tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers for more details when they become available.
