It seems players who are quitting in Gears 5 have become a major problem. The Coalition, the developer for Gears 5, is laying the hammer on players doing this. The company is suspending players and not taking this lightly. As of a few days ago, The Coalition stated that already impacted users would get the suspension removed but would then be one incident away from bans. These suspensions are ranging from one month to a year. The more a user quits, the longer the suspension will be. You can read the announcement below.
Quitters have been receiving month to year long suspensions for prior behavior.
This is how long you can be suspended for being a rampant quitter. Take heed.
Over the next few hours, impacted users will be un-suspended, but 1 quit away from suspension.
You have been warned.
