In their second post launch status update for Street Fighter V, Capcom confirmed that the majority of server issues have now been resolved, but they know “there is still a lot left to optimize and not everyone’s experience has been the same.”
Here’s a list of some of the updates Capcom has made over the last 24-48 hours to matchmaking, match results, replay search, and more:
- Matchmaking – Matchmaking is now working as intended and users should be able to find online matches without much of a wait in both Ranked and Casual mode.
- Battle Lounge – Playing in the same Battle Lounge for a set period of time renders players unable to participate in the lounge or matches. Many of the other issues with Battle Lounge have been resolved and users should be able to invite other players to their lounge. The team is still looking at this mode very closely and will continue to make improvements as we move into the weekend time frame.
- Match Results – Some users have reported that their match results are not being sent to the server. In most cases, this is more or less a UI bug and your results along with your rewards will still be credited to your account. If you are unsure if your match was recorded, check your battle log and if the match appears there, it will also be recorded on the server.
- Replay Search – Some of the more recent replay data won’t be available immediately when searching the replay database but the team is working on making those replays available as soon as possible. All of your personal replays are immediately available by going through your fighter profile.
In addition to match quitting, other issues being addressed include user names not showing up in Rival Search, user name not displaying properly on battle results screen, and ranking functionality not working properly on the CFN.
Capcom will be giving daily updates through their blog about Street Fighter V’s status, and the SFV Server Twitter account has begun tweeting regularly. “Hi #SFV World! There are no current issues to report at the moment, but please let us know of any problems you may be experiencing,” their most recent tweet says.
Ss he did earlier this week, Producer Yoshinori Ono apologized to fans. “I sincerely apologize to SFV player about @SFVServer some features state is unstable. Again, I’d like to apologize to SFV players,” he said.
