My chain gets adjusted fairly often. This is a normal thing.

Too little play in the chain will restrict swingarm motion and cause accelerated wear of chain, sprockets, and transmission components.

Excess play will cause the chain to slap the swingarm and ride up on the sprockets. Riding up on the sprockets means that you can bend or wear the top of the teeth. In extreme cases, you could even throw the chain right off.

Too loose is better than too tight, but both should be avoided through careful maintenance.
