Capcom punishes top ranked Street Fighter 5 player by docking over 9,000 League Points

Posted by John 'Velociraptor' Guerrero • March 7, 2016 at 4:34 p.m. PST

In our previous article we noted that two players, TS|Sabin and World_Combo, were the first to rise to the rank of Super Platinum on Street Fighter 5's online leader boards.

There have been accusations that the latter has been manipulating the system by quitting matches early to avoid losing points, and it appears Capcom has enforced a punishment.

Though we've heard Capcom has started taking action against rage quitters, we now have our first actual example, and by no means is it a small one.

World_Combo, a F.A.N.G player from Japan, stood at an impressive 10,047 League Points and number one ranked spot as of earlier today. Just a short while ago, an online search showed him to be down to 675 LP, with a Bronze ranking.

The two screen shots below were taken about an hour apart from each other.

This finally gives us an idea of what kind of repercussions players will be facing should they choose to try to cheat their way to the top.

A F.A.N.G player at #1? He shouldn't be anything but #2.

Thats brilliant now how about giving me my win/points after somone goes "40002" on me?

Just last night some nub Ken did. He wasn't even fighting in the 2nd round so I knew it was coming.

8 win streak
3500 odd points he had....yeah right.

How is it that wolfkrone gets to keep almost 7000LP while he rage quits, anyone reported him?

Chunli4life said on March 7, 2016 at 4:44 p.m.

As a F.A.N.G player i actually looked up to this dude (world_combo) no I'm like wow I didn't know he cheated like that I'm disappointed.

JFord78 said on March 7, 2016 at 4:50 p.m.

I was wondering how he got there. Looking at his matches as a F.A.N.G player myself for insight I saw nothing special and alot of unsafe stuff. Probably returned his copy to gamestop ASAP. Anaconda00 you've been warned!

#23
Knowyourplace said on March 7, 2016 at 4:50 p.m.

You could say he tasted some of his own poison

#24
Logic said on March 7, 2016 at 4:51 p.m.

Shame. Cheating should be punished but the salt generated by the simple fact a F.A.N.G player held number 1 was priceless. Such an underrated character. Oh well.

#25
Poboy294 said on March 7, 2016 at 4:52 p.m.

This is awesome. Yesterday I played someone with a 4000+ points and he also raged quit each time I beat him. Nice to see Capcom is taking this seriously.

#26
Syirine said on March 7, 2016 at 4:52 p.m.

Too bad he still gets to keep his title.

Not to knock capcom for their efforts but seriously, 80-90%? 1 down and another thousand to go with another 100,000 that'll fly under the radar.

Either way I smiled when I imagined this fool logging on lol. The look on his/her face was probably priceless

They need to make the punishments automatic. I don't get why we had this in SF4 and not on 5. How did they miss something like this?

I'm not even motivated to play online ATM.

Doopliss said on March 7, 2016 at 4:58 p.m.

It doesn't feel like the term "rage quit" is enough to describe stuff like this. This is a lot more intentional and calculating, unlike a proper rage quit that isn't done to gain something, but rather contain ones emotions.

Getdownbrown83 said on March 7, 2016 at 5:02 p.m.

I don't think 4002 is always a rage quit I had a couple where me and whoever I was fighting had it happen right in the middle of the 3rd round anyone's match a couple times, now saying that I have had alot where the second I won I got it too yesterday was like an official rage quit day I swear.

I just think the rage quitter jail is better than just removing e-points.

As long as reporting them puts them on watch then I'm all for it.

ViperGoomba said on March 7, 2016 at 5:18 p.m.

Those idiots at the top aren't the ones we should worry about. It's improbable you even get matched up with them. What about the idiots that keep making the grind to leave silver rank impossible because they quit at gold and silver levels?

For what it's worth, there's an idiot Nash player named "REVPETERPOPOFF" that is a rage quitter. Seen him 3 times today. Freaking jerks.

Capcom needs to reset the rankings for any player with a win-streak over 10 that has a quit on file.

#43
hozukimaru said on March 7, 2016 at 5:19 p.m.

I wonder how much a forfeit button would curb rq'ing? I think it would be neat to just take that L and lose about 20 points. Maybe even something like LoL has if your net is bad or you rq, it will ban you for so many min/hour; if you know you have bad net why make others suffer?

#44
LeonX said on March 7, 2016 at 5:19 p.m.

I think they should take the FM too...

So, so true, never thought about it until you brought it up,
'Grab quit', 'Theft quit', 'Raid quit' ? ^_^

Xykes said on March 7, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.

Have you ever heard the expression "making an example out of someone"?

That's what they're doing.

And, since they started, I've definitely seen fewer rage quits in ranked.

So, until they finish the permanent fix (which they're woking on), this is the next best approach.

#51
slicer45 said on March 7, 2016 at 5:34 p.m.

Interesting. I played him and he took his loss. I think RQers are especially prevalent among bronze and silvers. When people lose to a good player like me, many (but not all) rage quitters take that L.

This is arguably worse for the community if intermediate level players are stuck in bronze and silver by RQers.

#52
gklaus19 said on March 7, 2016 at 5:36 p.m.

First rage quitters and then lag switch,don't how they do that but for me is worst that the quitters four or five matches that starting lag whenever the guy is losing.

#53
gklaus19 said on March 7, 2016 at 5:37 p.m.

And when they quit on last round people should receive points/money for that match.

celeon said on March 7, 2016 at 5:58 p.m.

If i was a capcom developer i would dosomething like this : once i detect is a rage quiter i would mark it and then his character would be automatically a clown(in rage) or maybe Dan, and he cant do any damage and each fight he would lose tons of points, this would make him stop playing. Lol

Rage quitting is still going on very frequently. I lost out on 3 wins from it in 8 games over the weekend. I am completely demotivated to play due to the state of the game at the moment.
