Ninjala dev comments on idling and unsportsmanlike behavior, may issue bans
GungHo has issued a statement regarding players who are involved with mid-match idling and unsportsmanlike behavior in Ninjala.
According to the company, this “ruins the balance of battle and can have an extremely adverse effect on the fairness of the matching system”. It ultimately is a violation of the game’s terms of service, GungHo said.
Those that are idling or participating in unsportsmanlike behavior may face severe action. Bans could be handed out and accounts may be suspended.
Here’s the full statement from GungHo:
Thank you for playing Ninjala.
Currently, we have observed the following behavior in Ranked and Free Matches.
– Players going unresponsive in mid-battle
– Players robotically repeating a single action
– Players running around the stage but not participating in battle
Idling and similar conduct ruins the balance of battle and can have an extremely adverse effect on the fairness of the matching system, and is therefore strictly prohibited by the Ninjala Terms of Service.
The Ninjala Team is constantly monitoring reports from our players and various game logs.
If any player is determined to be repeatedly idling or engaging in similarly unsportsmanlike behavior, we reserve the right to take measures such as implementing matching bans or suspending player accounts.
The Ninjala Team endeavors to provide a safe and fair gaming environment for all players, and we ask for your cooperation in enjoying the game responsibly and in accordance with the Terms of Service.
Furthermore, should you encounter any suspected violations, we ask for your cooperation in reporting them to our team.
We hope you will continue to enjoy Ninjala.
