Rage quitters suck. They cause a lot of problems for other online gamers. They have been a big headache for Capcom ever since it launched Street Fighter 5. These players disconnect from a match when it becomes clear that they’re going to lose. So they are sore losers.
Since disconnected games don’t count as a win or loss for all players involved, rage quitters get to keep their winning percentage high by quitting matches they can’t win. Well, they are about to be taught a lesson. Capcom has said it will dole out “severe punishment” to these players. And now they have started docking League Points of rage quitters.
Now Capcom has started identifying players with unusually high disconnect rates coupled with very high win rates. It has docked League Points of more than 30 players so far. That number will only grow as they find more. They are only going after the worst offenders in the system right now. Players who have had a few instances of being disconnected during the match through no fault of their own don’t need to worry. It’s looking at players with disconnect rates as high as 90 percent. That tells them all they need to know.
Docking League Points is just a temporary solution. Capcom is still looking into a permanent solution for this.
