Capcom Issues Update on Street Fighter V Matchmaking, Battle Lounge and Fighter ID Search

Capcom recently provided a weekend update for the post-launch issues affecting Street Fighter V, stating that Casual and Ranked matchmaking is now “working as intended for most users.” Additionally, some issues with Battle Lounge still persist but the Fighter ID search issues have now been resolved. 


Matchmaking for Ranked and Casual is stable and is working as intended for most users. Some additional tweaks were made to the servers overnight, so players should actually be getting matches at a much faster rate now as well.

We do understand this is not the case for everyone, and the amount of matches a user gets can vary by region.

If you’re still having issues with Ranked or Casual matchmaking (long waits, unable to connect), please leave a comment here or tweet to @SFVServer with your Fighter ID and provide as much detail as possible (location, platform, etc).

Battle Lounge

We understand some users are still running into issues with Battle Lounges. We’ll be working on implementing fixes to this feature into the weekend. Again, this only affects some users so don’t be discouraged from checking this mode out and getting some matches in with friends!

Fighter ID Search

There were issues in the past day or so where newly created Fighter IDs were not showing up in the search. This issue has been resolved and newly created Fighter IDs will be available to search within 30 minutes of creating the account.

According to recent updates from the SFVServer account, slow matchmaking has now been resolved, and players should be able to find suitable opponents skill-wise.

Although connection issues have largely been resolved, some users might have to try logging in multiple times to get through. As for some match results not uploading, the issue should be resolved soon.

We’ll update our readers with further developments.
