Street Fighter V has only just launched but the first day was plagued by connection issues as Capcom's servers struggled

Street Fighter V has only just launched but things haven't been going the best for Capcom's latest fighter.

The online servers went down late last night, ensuring that players were unable to connect to other users online, which makes it pretty difficult to set up a brawl. Players reported issues for several hours, with no games available to view on Twitch and a lot of frustration in the air. Capcom had this response.

The company eventually took the servers completely offline for a time, ensuring the players would have to spend time with the single player portion of the game. As of four hours ago they were promising all online tech would be available again and it seems the issues have been solved for the most part. Fight!
