This month’s update will further address the rage-quitting issue that has been affecting online matches. Starting August 16, players who rage-quit will lose League Points and be locked out of online matchmaking for a set period.
The September update will add a number of features, including a VS CPU option, Daily Targets, colors for premium costumes, and more.
Get the details below.
■ Server Maintenance
Server maintenance will be performed on August 16 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. PT. During this time online features of Street Fighter V will not be available. Thank you for your patience.
■ August Update
Rage Quitting Penalty
We are aware of the Rage Quitting issue, and this update will continue our efforts toward resolving it. We will make a second update to the existing Rage Quitting system with stricter guidelines for players who disconnect before the match is over. Players who are penalized will lose League Points and be locked out of online matching for a set time. The update will be implemented after the maintenance on 8/16.
Since the initial Rage Quitting system rollout, we have seen a rapid decrease in rage quitting players, and we believe that this new update will reduce that number even further. That being said, we’re still working on implementing a new, more robust system that will address the issue more completely by early next year.
