Capcom plans harsher punishments for 'Street Fighter' quitters

Capcom has been combating quitters in Street Fighter V since the game’s debut. And tomorrow, the publisher/developer is apparently making the penalties for disconnecting before a match ends even more harsh. Like before, cowards will have League Points docked, and will also be locked out of matchmaking for an ambiguous period of time, according to a post on Capcom Unity. It sound exactly like what’s in place currently, but that’s supposedly working pretty well. There’s more comprehensive update coming, too.

“Since the initial Rage Quitting system rollout, we have seen a rapid decrease in quitting players and we believe that this new update will reduce that number even further,” the post reads. “That being said, we’re still working on implementing a new, more robust system that will address the issue more completely by early next year.”

Hopefully the current countermeasures are effective enough to keep existing players from abandoning the game wholesale before then.
