‘Street Fighter 5’ Devs To Punish Players Who Abandon Matches

Capcom is planning on punishing players who irresponsibly leave matches in “Street Fighter V” multiplayer mode.

PCGamer made mention that the developers will implement severe punishments to users who repeatedly abandon matches.

“Yes, we are well aware of the problem of players disconnecting before the match ends to retain their League Points and their win streaks,” The Street Fighter developers said.

“Thanks to all of the players who have brought this to our attention. We are working on a permanent solution to this problem, though we don’t have an exact date to share with you at the moment. That said, we are going to take direct action starting next week to punish those players who are abusing the system.”

As of the moment, the game devs shared no details about what disciplinary actions will be taken in order to regulate such cheat in the ranking system. However, they did asked gamers to document and upload videos should they encounter such offenders. For those using Playstation 4, they suggested to use the “share function” in order to catch users who employ the rage-quit trick.

Days after the fighting game was released, players observed that there was no in-game function to punish those who would leave matches if circumstances do not favor them. In competitive play, fighters who quit before the match was decided is a way to avoid falling in the ranking system. It is a way for cheaters to stay in standing positions they did not rightfully deserve. In a report made by GameSpot, the flaw was acknowledged promptly by Capcom.

Aside from unearned ranks, there were other complications that Street Fighter V came across. Matchmaking was reported broken for both casual and ranked modes. The problem was unhesitatingly fixed and announced “working as intended” by Capcom. They did, however, recognize that players from Europe, Middle East and other regions may still encounter problems.

“Street Fighter V” had difficulties since its releas last February 16 but Capcom was quick to act and have most of them fixed.
