Detailing the punishment for Street Fighter V rage quitters (those with high disconnect rates) in their latest Post Launch Status Update, Capcom revealed that about 30 players saw their League Points docked.

In their explanation, they added that this is a temporary fix and a permanent solution will be coming in the future:

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 far, Capcom is only going after the worst rage quitters (those with an 80% – 90% disconnect rate). While they previously used player feedback to find them, the server team “put together a process to pinpoint users who are clearly abusing the system and we’re happy to announce that we can now do this without any proof of video.”

As for the servers, an issue where some users couldn’t be found in Rival Search is resolved and an issue where players were disconnected immediately after creating a Battle Lounge is fixed. Additionally, Capcom Japan recommends checking and seeing if these remote ports are allowed on your router and PC as it could help with logging into the servers:

  • TCP: 80, 443, 20002, 30840, 30850, 30870
  • UDP: 30840-30859, 30870-30879

Capcom is also looking at issues with Fighter Profile data not currently populating with info, people getting disconnected while making a Fighter ID, and users who use “-” and “_” in their Fighter ID who can’t be searched.

Next week, Capcom will detail the March Street Fighter V update, telling us about the modes, bug fixes, and more.

What do you think of the penalty to rage quitters?
