In case you didn’t know, rage quitting means leaving a game just as you’re about to lose it because you are mad. This practice is frowned upon today and developers have come up with ways to punish players who do it. It wastes people’s time. Capcom didn’t punish Street Fighter 5 rage quitters at first, but it did say that the issue will be addressed.
Addressed with a “Severe” punishment for players who rage quit in Street Fighter 5. That should be great news to all of those who don’t do this.
Players rage quit in Street Fighter 5, and will leave a match as they’re about to lose. This sucks for the other player because the match isn’t even registered. This means that no loss is counted for the person who quits and no win is counted for the person who’s on the verge of winning. Like I said, it’s a waste of time.
Many players do this to retain their League Points and win streaks. Capcom is working on a permanent solution to this issue and it’s going to start taking direct action against these players starting next week. “Severe” punishment is promised for the worst offenders, but we don’t know what that is yet. Capcom will give us more details about this within that week. Right now they want you to record every instance of rage quitting you encounter. Capcom will look at the video evidence.
