Ono offers 'sincerest apologies about Street Fighter 5 server situation' as Capcom works to better online experience

Last night's Street Fighter 5 release was one of the most hype-filled in fighting game history, but was a bit stifled when players took their game online to find a less than stellar experience.

Players quickly noticed both Ranked and Casual matchmaking taking an exceptional amount of time to actually match opponents up despite the massive amount of players actively searching for battles.

Servers have also been randomly shutting down, abruptly stopping those lucky enough to actually find matches. As of this morning, players have reported difficulties in creating Battle Lounges at all, furthering frustrations.

Street Fighter 5 creator Yoshinori Ono has commented on these issues via his Twitter stating, "My sincerest apologies again about [the] SF5 server situation. I think that we need to improve on this problem the most."
The official SF5 Server Twitter has a few tweets addressing the problem as well. They assure us they are working hard to rectify the situation.

Capcom has said they will continue to keep the community informed via this same account, so check back often for updates on the status of SF5's servers.
