Street Fighter V online is facing some problems, as “rage-quitting” has quickly caught on as the new trend. Players are quitting before the round is over, in order to maintain their streaks and position on the leaderboards. Capcom has listened to the community, and stated there will be severe consequences for this unfair practice, according to Gamespot.
The issue should have been foreseen earlier on, as similar games have offered online multiplayer in the past, and Street Fighter is no stranger to multiplayer leaderboards. Although rage-quitting was not penalized initially, Capcom is now listening to feedback, and working to find a solution. Better late than never, we say; it will be super-awesome if the game has limitations that would prevent rage-quitting, altogether.
Competition is the essence of online multiplayer games, and the primary motivation for players to continue playing. However, quitting a match without actually losing it, allows players to retain their win streak and godly status in Street Fighter, which has caused a lot of frustration for the online gaming community.
Campcom has requested players to share video recordings of specific incidents, to help eradicate this issue. The incidents can be recorded locally, via Twitch, or even through the PS4’s share function.
After several fixes, Street Fighter V has received mostly positive reviews for its design, fluid gameplay, and gorgeous graphics. We hope the developer is able to address the latest issue quickly, as rage-quitting has already stirred quite a lot of trouble for “honest” players.
