There’s no punishment for being a rage quitter in Street Fighter V right now. The game doesn’t interpret leaving mid-match as a win or a loss for either side, and it’s made a bunch of players furious. Capcom has told Eurogamer it’ll be fixed, though it’s unclear how or when.

“I can confirm that it is something we are going to be addressing to make the gameplay experience one that all fans can enjoy and be rewarded fairly for,” a Capcom spokesperson told the publication.

The bigger question: how did the game ship without an answer for this?

DISCUSSION

Just give the person who didn’t rage quit a free win.

Don’t punish people who leave though. Lots of times there are legitimate reasons (someone knocks on the door, baby vomits/cries, etc.). And I personally believe if you’re not going to have good time, it’s ok to back out (like if I’m playing a sports game and the score is already lopsided and there’s no way for me to “surrender,” I just back out cuz I’m not wasting my time, sitting here for another 10 minutes knowing what the outcome will be since I got matched with someone way overskilled than me).
