Street Fighter V Will Punish Rage Quitters with League Point Deduction

on March 5, 2016 11:53 AM

Capcom has opened up about how they will be addressing rage quitters in Street Fighter V‘s online mode. This is currently a short term solution as the developer creates a permanent plan.

Last week, Capcom began by penalizing around 30 players, lowering their League Points, and therefore rank, significantly. This is considered a warning, and further rage quits will cause Capcom to take further action. Going forward, weekly sweeps will detect players with large disconnect rates, around 80-90%, and will have their LP points reset.

While this is only a temporary fix, it does help dissuade players from quitting out of matches excessively. Capcom also took time to thank those who helped by answering the call to send in videos of rage quitters,

First off, we want to thank the community for being so proactive on this issue. Ever since last week, we’ve received a ton of videos both here on Unity and our social channels which we’ve been able to cross reference with our data and put together a clear picture as to which players are abusing the system. Though we were pretty confident that players in our system who had high disconnect rates were indeed those who were attempting to avoid a loss at all costs, we didn’t want to start dishing out any punishments without clear proof.
