Nintendo's got a cheeky warning for rage quitters

Written by  Kellen Beck

Splatoon 2 is nothing if not charming. 

During this weekend's Splatfest, some players noticed that Splatoon's signature Nintendo charm even extends to its warning against rage quitters and players with poor internet connections.

If you disconnect from online multiplayer matches in Splatoon 2 enough times, the game will give you a warning that you could be banned from playing online if you keep disconnecting. The message is sent in the most Nintendo way possible.

Twitter user Hypwnotic posted a screenshot of the warning, which reads:

Your previous online play session didn't end naturally, which is PREEEEETTY suspicious. If this keeps 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 warning of being banned is still there, but the approach and tone of the message really takes the edge off.

The ban exists because some players, whether intentionally or unintentionally, disconnect from online matches, leaving their team down a player and at a serious disadvantage. To maintain fairness, some games will stop you from playing online if you disconnect too many times.
