Street Fighter V currently doesn't punish rage quitters, but Capcom says that a change is coming. It's unclear what this change will entail.

Street Fighter V is out, letting players square off online against the best and brightest that the world has to offer. That also means that players can get paired up with rage quitters. And they're currently not being punished for their antics.

If someone quits a match before the result is reported to Capcom's servers, the game simply treats the match like it never happens. No result is recorded and win streaks remain in place in the VS screen before the next match.

While that's simply an annoyance, and a waste of time, if you're playing casual matches, it has more of an impact on ranked matches where rage quitters can avoid losing points.

Capcom has since said that it will address this issue. It told Eurogamer that players can expect a change but didn't indicate what that would be or when it will be implemented.

"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 spokesperson said.
