In an interview with EA's Jazz Brousseau, PlayStation Lifestyle learned that EA has a plan for how to deal with online quitters for EA Sports UFC. Those who intentionally disconnect frequently within a short period time will be temporarily banned or permanently removed from the game's leaderboards.
So, with disconnects in online, we’ve taken a little bit of a different approach than we had in the past titles. We’re really going to focus on sort of penalizing people who quit. So, it’s not just a matter of giving you a loss and increasing your DNF (Did Not Finish) score. We’re going to use that DNF score in more meaningful ways. So, if you quit too often in a short period of time, you may be temporarily banned from matchmaking. You may see your position in the leaderboards removed entirely. We really want to provide a fun experience in the online space and we take disconnects in online pretty seriously. I definitely hear you loud and clear in terms of it (intentional disconnects) being a problem. We’ll continue to monitor player behavior and work with our customer service team to address players who abuse that.
He also emphasized that players will be permanently banned "in only extreme cases." Those who are temporarily banned will not be removed from the game entirely.
In only extreme cases will it be a permanent ban. What we are doing is we’ll be temporarily be suspending accounts from matchmaking. We won’t be suspending them from playing the game; but if you disconnect from a match too often, obviously there’s going to be a grace period — because there are sometimes legitimate reasons to disconnect from a match — but if you do it too often and if your DNF percentage goes to passing a certain threshold, then the game will take action and we’ll temporarily suspend you from matchmaking.
I assume that if this goes well, EA will implement similar procedures in their other online sports matches.
