    We have all been there haven't we where we are absolutely destroying the opposition on Killer Instinct when all of a sudden the victim of your awesome button bashing onslaught 'Rage quits'.

    Well rage quitters Rich Bantegui, Killer Instinct community manager has explained a new policy that will affect those sore losers that end the game early.

    Double Helix are implementing 'Jail time' for repeat offenders, a system similar to GTA V cheaters pool. If you end the game and your disconnect percentage goes above 15 percent you go to JAIL!

    Here's the official word on the new Jail system:

    RAGE QUIT SOLUTION IMPLEMENTED

    Introducing a novel solution to rage quitters in Ranked Match: JAIL

    - The first time your disconnect percentage goes above 15 percent you go to JAIL

    - A 10 match minimum is required

    - JAIL lasts for 24 hours. During this time you can only be matched against other JAIL members

    - Each time you go to JAIL the amount of time increases by 24 hours (capped at 5 days – 120 hrs)

    - While in JAIL your profile icon will be automatically changed to a custom JAIL icon to let you know you are in JAIL

    - When your JAIL time is up, you go back into the public again (even if your disconnect percentage is back over 15%)

    - However, when back in public, if you disconnect and you are still above 15 percentage you go directly back to JAIL

    - For any match that sends you to JAIL, player will take a loss

    This new system will take affect when the new free to play character 'Spinal' is introduced.

      I have to say this sounds a nice idea and glad to see it is being taken from a game I love even though I have not did much of GTA V online as there is not much for those I do not want to do MP.

      I think it seems fine. I am on many sites and i know comparing a site to a game can be odd. But since some of the sites am on are Role playing and if you do anything wrong you can be blocked from the forums for a day. So to me this seems alright.
