According to the latest news from Capcom Unity, the Street Fighter April Update will tackle rage quitting, finally bringing a permanent solution to a problem that has been bugging players ever since SF V hit the market. The company has punished rage quitters in the past, but players were asking for a permanent solution that will bring all rage quitting behaviors to a halt.
There are no official statements regarding the way in which the Street Fighter April update will tackle rage quitting, but the permanent measure is believed to deal with League Points.
Details are expected to be revealed in the near future when the update will be released. And since the last one was scheduled for the last part of March, it’s probable that the April update will also be made available towards the end of the month.
The only news about the upcoming update is the fact that it will deal with rage quitters and the permanent solution that fair players were asking for ever since the fifth installment of the franchise was released.
There have been attempts at stopping the un-sportsmanship behavior in the past. At the beginning of the year, Capcom was asking players to report any rage quitter they encountered. After a week from the first announcement, the Street Fighter developer proudly told its players that the worst offenders were punished.
Capcom Unity decided at that time that the best way to punish rage quitters was to take away their precious points, the ones that they avoided losing in the first place. But it is hard work to differentiate between sore losers and people with a bad internet connection.
So it was rumored that the company was working on a more permanent, more efficient solution for trimming out the rage quitters from among the people with bad internet connections.
One of the most obvious things that make a rage quitter stand out is the fact that when you have an internet connection that hates you, you are bound to get disconnected when you’re about to win a match. Your Wi-Fi doesn’t just decide to go rogue when you’re losing a game; that’s against Murphy’s laws.
Another important difference is the fact that rage quitters have almost perfect League Scores. So either they are exquisite players, or they are quitting right before losing a match, just to make sure that they keep their score in pristine state.
Unfortunately for them, Street Fighter April update will tackle rage quitting, so they may go from pristine to severely diminished.
