When the Street Fighter V April update goes live later this month, Capcom will be implementing their new rage quitting system, which punishes players who frequently disconnect during online matches.

As Capcom explained, players with high disconnect rates will receive temporary bans from online matchmaking:

The way this will work is the system will identify players who have high disconnect rates during matches and will lock them out of matchmaking for a period of time. Players who have been identified as abusing the system will receive an in-game message notifying them they have been locked out of matchmaking. More additions and enhancements to this system will be implemented in the future.

The April update will also include matchmaking improvements, with Capcom saying, “Many users should have an easier time creating and connecting to Battle Lounges and we are also loosening the restrictions on finding an opponent.” They add that these changes should help those in Europe and other parts of the world find opponents faster.

A release date for the April update will be announced “very soon.”
