Psyonix have released the v1.03 patch for their addictive car-soccer game Rocket League. The main talking point of the new update has to be the newly implemented rule which will ban the very first player to quit a ranked multiplayer match for a total of 15 minutes.
While of course this will still be the case, the new rule should act as a deterrent for those that quit for numerous reasons including not being able to take a loss (don't you just hate those people). Other additions in the new update including cross-platform chat between Playstation 4 and PC owners, AI bot skill levels auto adjusting to the average skill level of all players, and lots of other small changes and fixes.
You can see the full changelog of the 1.3 update below.
Do you think the 15 minute ban is too harsh or just about right?
