Severe Punishment For Rage Quitters


Recommended Posts




Capcom are working on coming up with a solution to solve Street Fighter 5's rage quitting problem. Currently, people can leave a game as soon as they lose to retain their win streak and take away the win from their opponent. Capcom are looking at punishing the worst offenders in the coming weeks. 


In a post on Capcom Unity, the Street Fighter 5 developers talked about how they're aware of the current plague of Street Fighter 5 idiots (not Capcom's exact words) and they're going to attempt to put an end to it.


There's no specific date for this fix, but steps are due to be taken from next week, with punishments coming to players who have been abusing this loophole in the system.


"This punishment will be severe for the worst offenders, but we will need the community’s help with this,"  says the Capcom update. "We will follow up with more details next week, but over the weekend, please record every instance of rage quitting you encounter."

I don't see how they can implement this fairly. It is not easy to detect a normal quit from a rage quit. You will end up penalizing people who are just quitting, not rage quitters.
