Official Tekken 7 Online Ban Notice for Rage Quitters, Boosters & Hackers

Tekken 7 on Steam was updated a day ago with a 110.3 MB sized update and it seems to be the time to remind people going forward about the online terms of service. Going by the measures to address online violations notice which was posted on the Bandai Namco EU website back on Feb 8, I think the recent Steam update might be related (If it isn't, feel free to clear things Bandai Namco?). Although I don't know the extent of which this will actually prevent Rage quitters, boosting or people hacking unusable characters or stages into the online, the capabilities to warn and ban players are there going by some early reports on Steam. If you need a link to the official online notice for Tekken 7, here's a link as well as some quick quotes from the game's EULA of activities that could land you into trouble.

Playing Tekken 7 should remain fun. Therefore, we have decided to implement a ban to the users who violate Online services Terms of Use on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and STEAM, in order to ensure the best possible online multiplayer experience on Tekken 7.

This banning procedure will be the following:

- First, users who violated Online service Terms of Use get the warning message in the game. This alert will be displayed when "ONLINE" mode is selected. You cannot hide this message once displayed.

- If the violating act is continued, the online service will be suspended for repeat offenders Please note that the banning system only applies to online multiplayer services. This procedure will be started in February.

Have fun in Tekken 7!
