Ninjala developer GungHo Entertainment has issued another warning to its players today, saying that those who "repeatedly exit the Matching Lobby after entering" could see their accounts be banned or suspended if their actions are deemed to be malicious.
The company has published a statement to its official website, notifying fans that it is aware of "a number of cases" in which players have been caught in the act after receiving user feedback. This new message comes just days after the company warned players about "repeatedly idling" and engaging in "unsportsmanlike behaviour", which are apparently "strictly prohibited by the Ninjala Terms of Service".
Here's the full statement:
Thank you for playing Ninjala.
At the present time, we have confirmed a number of cases in which players repeatedly exit the Matching Lobby after entering. We have also received considerable user feedback regarding this behavior.
The Ninjala team is aware of some of the reasons behind this behavior, and is working toward fundamentally resolving the situation in a future update.
We promise to do everything in our power to address the underlying issue. At the same time, the act of intentionally and repeatedly exiting the matching lobby and cancelling matching is one that greatly inconveniences other players, and we therefore ask that players not engage in this behavior.
Furthermore, be aware that the Ninjala team is consistently monitoring player reports and logs. If any such actions are deemed to be malicious, we reserve the right to institute matching bans or suspend accounts in accordance with the Ninjala Terms of Service.
The Ninjala team will continue to do everything to ensure a fair and enjoyable game environment for all players. Should you encounter any issues or trouble within the game, please do not hesitate to submit feedback to us via the inquiry form.
We hope you will continue to enjoy Ninjala.
The warnings might sound a little harsh, but it's probably for the best that the developer is hoping to keep the game as fun as possible for those who want to take part.
