Updated: Capcom explained how Street Fighter 5's online match making works, specifically what each of the connection settings means.


Any: All regions, the default setting. This is reportedly why some people are saying the netcode is worse in this beta, as they're being matched with people all over the globe.

3-5: Capcom stated this is the most balanced experience in terms of match making, which will match you with half the world, while maintaining a reasonable connection.

4-5: For players who want even better connections, you can select this option, and it will limit your match making to your quadrant only.

Here are a few images to help you find the setting and adjust it.

Note that when adjusting the connection from the training menu, you need to click "Apply Settings" to have your configuration take effect.
Earlier: The Street Fighter 5 beta is live for PlayStation 4 and PC users.

15 out of the 16 playable characters are available now, everyone except F.A.N.G, and 9 out of 11 stages are selectable.

This is happening a little ways ahead of when the 4th closed beta was originally scheduled to run, which was January 30th at 12:01 a.m. PST.

According to Capcom's prior announcement, the servers will be live until January 31st at 7 p.m. PST.
