Splatoon 2 appears to dish out temporary punishments for repeated disconnects. After disconnecting online four times due to issues with their connection, player hypwnotic received the message above. It warns that you’ll be unable to play online “for a while” due to play sessions not ending “naturally”.
This was with the Splatfest World Premiere demo, but this should carry over to the final game as well.
