Recently, Ubisoft finally vowed to do something about For Honor rage quitters. For Honor players have been complaining about rage quitting right from the beginning, but Ubisoft couldn't do much about it. The game's network instability meant honest players also dropped out of games frequently, through no fault of their own. Now that random disconnections are less frequent, it's time to drop the hammer.

For Honor update 1.08 has arrived, bringing quitting penalties and a host of other tweaks and changes. You can check out the full notes, below:

Quit Penalty

Developer comments: We are now able to activate the Quit Penalty feature during matches. When activated, players leaving the session will receive a penalty. This will reduce the amount of Rage Quitting during matches and improve the overall quality of match experience. The feature is included in this TU but will only be activated at a later date.

- The player will receive a warning message about the penalty before quitting the match

- If the player proceeds to Quit (via the in game menu or Alt+F4) they will receive a 10 minute matchmaking penalty

- This penalty is also applicable to all group members if their leader leaves

- There is a 30 second grace window (duration is adjustable) at match start to account for incomplete groups/matchmaking issues

- The quit penalty only applies to games played through matchmaking
