Capcom is addressing Street Fighter V’s rage quitting problem

Among its myriad of other issues, Street Fighter V players have found yet another problem with Capcom’s latest fighting game entry: there is no penalty for online players who just up and leave a match before it’s over. Fortunately, Capcom says it is aware of the issue and is working on a solution.

As numerous players have reported, if one player straight up quits out of an online Street Fighter V match before a winner emerges, it doesn’t count as a loss for them, nor does it count as a win for the other player, the match simply ends. Players have found this infuriating, especially since the game’s online component seems to be what Capcom is really trying to get players involved in (as evidenced by the game’s current lack of substantial offline options).

Speaking with Eurogamer, a Capcom spokesperson says the studio is working to address the issue of rage quitting, though they didn’t clarify exactly how:

“I can confirm that it is something we are going to be addressing to make the gameplay experience one that all fans can enjoy and be rewarded fairly for.”

The rage quitting problem joins a sizeable list of other issues Capcom says it will be addressing in the near future. For more on Street Fighter V, be sure to read our official GameCrate review.
