Ever been frustrated by a player quitting on you in an online match on Tekken, Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter? I know I have, and it seems quite common for players to disconnect just before you pull in a victory.
Fortunately, NetherRealm have implemented a new finishing move to Mortal Kombat X that should put disconnectors and rage quitters to shame. In Mortal Kombat X, any plays that purposely disconnect from a game will have their heads implode (in-game of course.) and the opposing player's character will stand there, with a slight smirk on his face.
The whole procedure has been called a Quitality, and it will happen every time a player quits in the middle of a fight. The win will go straight to the player who remained in the game, whilst the disconnected player will be given a loss.
Whilst it's not clear, I'm expecting that the Quitality will happen even if a player's internet goes down, or they get disconnected for a reason out of their control. There's no details on whether it will affect players ranking in a different way to a standard loss, but if players want to get seriously competitive in Mortal Kombat X, a Quitality is the last thing a player will want to receive.
Mortal Kombat X will be releasing on April 14 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC. A later mobile release for iOS and Android will also follow.
