Street Fighter V August and September Updates

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

juri

It seems like Capcom, is really trying to make amends for the mistakes and limited features during the launch of Street Fighter V. Before it’s launch, Capcom promised they wouldn’t treat this Street Fighter game like past installments. With their goal to make Street Fighter V as a serviceable fighting game. With only needing one disc for future characters and free patch updates for SFV. And it looks like they’re are holding up there end of the bargain.

 

Early this morning, Capcom gave details on the latest update for August. Starting tomorrow 8/16, there will be a pretty lengthy server maintenance. This server maintenance will be taking place during 1 p.m. PT to 7 p.m. PT (3 p.m EDT to 10 p.m EDT). This update looks to solve the raging quitting issues on SFV.

Here are the details on August’s update:

AUGUST UPDATE

Rage Quitting Penalty

We are aware of the Rage Quitting issue, and this update will continue our efforts toward resolving it. We will make a second update to the existing Rage Quitting system with stricter guidelines for players who disconnect before the match is over. Players who are penalized will lose League Points and be locked out of online matching for a set time. The update will be implemented after the maintenance on 8/16.

Since the initial Rage Quitting system rollout, we have seen a rapid decrease in rage quitting players, and we believe that this new update will reduce that number even further. 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.

Double Fight Money is happening! We appreciate your support for Street Fighter V, so we’re giving you the chance to double your FM earnings in Ranked Match! We will hold our first Double FM Event on the weekend of September 2-4th. Please stay tuned for more details!

Additional Features
