Rage quitter Hell is coming with Street Fighter 5's next update

Yesterday, Capcom gave us a sneak peak at the improvements they will be making to Street Fighter 5's online experience. The blog post shared a slew of details, and one that may have gone overlooked amidst the excitement is the updated rage quit penalty system.


"Matchmaking logic will take into account online behavior and frequent disconnectors will be matched with similar opponents," the blog on Capcom Unity states.

Frequent offenders being paired up with players of similar behavior means we'll be seeing a "rage quitter Hell" of sorts. A feature found in other titles -- such as Super Smash Bros. 4 -- this punishment system makes it so that rage quitters fight other rage quitters more often and encounter those who play by the rules less.

Additionally, the icons that were introduced back in December will be working as intended once the next update is officially in effect. The most vicious rage quitters will be flagged with a special Player Profile icon to help others identify them more easily, and the most honorable of players will also be given a special profile image.

Beware, rage quitters, life is going to get more difficult for you very soon.
