Rage Quitters will be addressed in Street Fighter 5 April Update


   Capcom has disclosed that it will be releasing a new Street Fighter 5 update in April to address an ongoing issue with players rage-quitting. In a post on the official Street Fighter Twitter account, the company said it is "planning to roll out a system this month" and will have "more details coming soon." Rage-quitting in Street Fighter 5's online multiplayer matches has been an issue since the game's release. The game launched in February with no penalty system in place for people that quit early, and Capcom said it hoped to resolve the issue in the future.

    On March 4, it announced short-term measures, which involved monitoring players abusing the system and encouraging others to report players that rage-quit. It said work on a permanent solution was ongoing. 
"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," it said at the time.
"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."
