Street Fighter V rage quitters will be punished

Uncategorized Admin 0

Capcom have detailed plans for the punishment of rage quitters in Street Fighter V, over on their blog.

The post reads:

“Starting last week, we penalized roughly 30 players in our system by docking their League Points. Players who log into their account and see that their LP and Rank has dropped significantly can consider this a warning. We will be continuing to monitor these accounts in the coming weeks and will take further action if needed.”

“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. While we don’t have an exact ETA on a permanent solution, we will let everyone know as soon as it is in place.”

So there’s no ETA on when a permanent fix will be available to eradicate the plague of rage-quitters — but that’s not the only issue. Elsewhere, people (like me, actually) who have trouble getting regular, quick matches are being told:

“For those of you who are having issues connecting to our servers, Capcom Japan has released another tip that may help some users. We wanted to share that with you today. They recommend checking and seeing if these remote ports are allowed on your router and PC as it could help with logging into our servers.” You can see the recommended ports below.

TCP: 80, 443, 20002, 30840, 30850, 30870

UDP: 30840-30859, 30870-30879

While being genuinely one of the best fighting games I’ve ever played, I can’t help but feel that we’re stuck in an extended beta phase. You shouldn’t have to mess around with all of that stuff to get a smooth game: you don’t have to do it in other titles. I suppose at least something is being done, slowly.
