Street Fighter 5 Rage Quitter Penalties Finally Arrive

Now that the servers are (hopefully) stable, it is time for Street Fighter 5 rage quitter penalties to be applied. Hopefully though the system that does this will know the difference between server disconnects and intentional quitting.

Capcom have posted an update for Street Fighter 5 and how they are going to be dealing with rage quitters. This is a short term solution though until they implement something more permanent.

“To be clear, we are only targeting the worst offenders in our system, so if you have had a few instances of being disconnected during a match, you have nothing to worry about. The players who fit the criteria of what we would call a “Rage Quitter” typically have an 80-90% disconnect rate and their accounts sit far outside of the norm as compared to the majority of other players.”

They have revealed that the Street Fighter 5 rage quitter penalties have been applied to around 30 players so far, and this is done by docking League Points.

“Players who log into their account and see that their LP and Rank has dropped significantly can consider this a warning. We will be continuing to monitor these accounts in the coming weeks and will take further action if needed.

Moving forward, we will be making a sweep each week based on accounts in our system that have abnormally high disconnect rates (particularly at the end of the match) and will reset their League Points.”

Hopefully this will deal with the rage quitting issue, that has been a problem with the game. It should be stated though it was only a problem because Capcom didn’t seem to have a system to detect the rage quitters until now.
