Perhaps not something we’d normally cover, but Mortal Kombat X is gaining a lot of traction at the moment and it’s a franchise that is still incredibly popular. I wanted to cover this new piece because it's an issue that affects many multiplayer games: rage quitters. To address this, NetherRealm have decided to explode the heads of anyone who leaves amatch early. Does this fix the issue of leavers? Not really. Does it make the win (if you can call it that) more appealing? I suppose so.

Leavers are a big problem and the solution to them isn’t an easy one. Personally I’d prevent anyone from queueing for a match for a day if they leave. If they leave the following day, I’d extend that ban to two. Whatever game I’m playing there always seems to be a mard-arse who can’t take losing. As far as I’m concerned, they aren’t worth keeping.

Oh and there’s a video below of one of the new fatalities from Mileena. Gross.
