Splatoon 2 Temporarily Blocks Players Who Repeatedly Disconnect | Nintendaily

It seems Nintendo are taking action against serial Splatoon 2 disconnectors by temporarily blocking offenders.

During last weekend’s Splatfest it wasn’t just new maps that were discovered. Players found that disconnecting from matches multiple times would get a window warning them if they continued their behaviour, they would be blocked.

The message received reads:

“Your previous online play session didn’t end naturally, which is preeeeetty suspicious. If this keep happening, we’re gonna have to block you from playing online for a while. Make sure your internet isn’t busted and try again”.

The below picture was posted by Twitter user @hypwnotic who first discovered the message.

It has been a long-standing bugbear of fans when a player leaves their squad, leaving the team one-Inkling down. Of course a good proportion of those disconnecting (including the above apparently) are those who innocently have a bad connection, but hopefully the move will for the most part ensure people still stop purposely quitting when the going gets.
