As of the moment, Capcom is doing the leg work manually, identifying players with very high disconnect rates and very high win rates and docking points from their Street Fighter V ranking. Roughly 30 players have had League Points subtracted so far, Capcom said.
“Since last week, we’ve received a ton of videos … which we’ve been able to cross reference with our data and put together a clear picture as to which players are abusing the system,” a Capcom community manager wrote.
Most competitive online fighters have a system in place to track disconnections or count them as a loss for the player that disconnected, but Street Fighter V doesn’t; with a disconnected game not counting as a win or a loss for either participant. This allows some players to keep their win ratio artificially high by disconnecting when things get tough.
Capcom is looking at implementing a permanent solution to counter and reprimand players exploiting the system, with the current method only being a short-term fix.
“To be clear, we are only targeting the worst offenders in our system,” the community manager said. ‘So if you have had a few instances of being disconnected during a match, you have nothing to worry about.” To be considered a rage quitter by Capcom a player will need a disconnect rate of between 80 and 90 percent.
