Street Fighter 5 rage quitters will soon discover that their League Points – which are accumulated from earning wins in the game – will be docked for unsporting behaviour.
Capcom has confirmed that the punishment will be dished out to the “worst offenders” in a post to the Capcom blog, following up the news last week that Capcom will be looking to punish players who continue to quit online matches early in the game.
In the post, Capcom writes:
“We will be punishing players on a weekly basis who have extremely high disconnect rates coupled with unrealistic win rates.
To be clear, we're only targeting the worst offenders in our system, so if you have had a few instances of being disconnected during a match, you have nothing to worry about. The players who fit the criteria of what we would call a “Rage Quitter” typically have an 80-90% disconnect rate and their accounts sit far outside of the norm compared to the majority of other players.”

The blog post goes on to discuss the punishment that will be handed out to these players:
“Starting last week, we penalised roughly 30 players in our system by docking their League Points. Players who log into their account and see that their LP and Rank has dropped significantly can consider this a warning. We'll be continuing to monitor these accounts in the coming weeks and will take further action if needed.
"Moving forward, we'll be making a sweep each week based on accounts in our system that have abnormally high disconnect rates (particularly at the end of the match) and will reset their League Points.”
Capcom goes on to confirm that it's currently working on a permanent solution, and will update players as soon as it's ready.
