Capcom has now posted a new update on some of the changes they plan to make to improve the gameplay experience for Street Fighter 5.
Capcom wrote a new “post launch status update” for Street Fighter 5 over on its official blog. The two main areas they are focusing on right now is improving matchmaking and punishing rage quitters.
Here’s the note about rage quitters: “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.”
They note that the punishment will be bad for the worst offenders. They advise people to use the PS4’s Share button to capture evidence of rage quitters.
Here’s their note on matchmaking: “Much like the last update, matchmaking for both Ranked and Casual modes is working as intended for most users, but we do understand this is not the case for some players in Europe, the Middle East and various other regions. Several improvements were made this past week that should have decreased the wait time for many users in those territories, but we will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates when additional improvements are made.”
Capcom promised update patch 1.02 should be released in the next few days or so. When it’s out, we’ll be sure to let you know what it does.
