Though Street Fighter V was plagued with server issues for the first few days following its launch, the game mostly runs as its supposed to now. With those issues mostly behind them, Capcom is focusing on another serious bother for online players, namely, rage-quitters.
In a blog post detailing some patch updates, Capcom put out the call for players to report any instance where an opponent disconnected prematurely, and will begin punishing players who repeat the offense.
This punishment will be severe for the worst offenders, but we will need the community’s help with this. We will follow up with more details next week, but over the weekend, please record every instance of rage quitting you encounter. The best way to do this is to use the SHARE function on the PlayStation 4 after the match has concluded, though any video evidence will suffice (Twitch archives, local recordings etc.).
Street Fighter V is now available for PS4 and PC. Have you encountered any rage-quitters while online?
