Dishonest players will face bans. During a live Tekken Talk broadcast, Tekken 8 director Katsuhiro Harada and producer Michael Murray explained that this is a complicated issue due to legal protections. For this reason, the developers are cautious in their approach to dealing with such players. However, despite these challenges, efforts are underway to remove these individuals from the gaming service before implementing bans.

As of now, there is no information on when exactly the bans for rage quitters will commence. Katsuhiro Harada also acknowledged that in some cases, players do not intentionally leave matches. These could be due to connection issues. The creators of Tekken 8 have confirmed plans to update the disconnection frequency indicator displayed on each player's profile, which will make it more accurate.

The broadcast emphasized that gamers should continue to report rage quitters. The more reports there are, the higher these players will be on the list.
