Many Street Fighter fans were not enjoying the highly anticipated launch of Street Fighter V thanks to server issues that kicked them from games and kept them clogged up in lobbies. With half a week behind it, Capcom claims to have cleared up a “majority” of the problems, and it is now focusing on optimizing everyone’s experience.
Matchmaking is now working as intended and users should be able to find online matches without much of a wait in both Ranked and Casual mode.
Playing in the same Battle Lounge for a set period of time renders players unable to participate in the lounge or matches. Many of the other issues with Battle Lounge have been resolved and users should be able to invite other players to their lounge. The team is still looking at this mode very closely and will continue to make improvements as we move into the weekend time frame.
Some users have reported that their match results are not being sent to the server. In most cases, this is more or less a UI bug and your results along with your rewards will still be credited to your account.
If you are unsure if your match was recorded, check your battle log and if the match appears there, it will also be recorded on the server.
Some of the more recent replay data won’t be available immediately when searching the replay database but the team is working on making those replays available as soon as possible.
All of your personal replays are immediately available by going through your fighter profile.
Other issues being addressed:
- Some user names don’t show up in Rival Search.
- Some user names don’t display properly on battle results screen.
- Ranking functionality isn’t working properly on the CFN.
Capcom says it will continue to check in with its fanbase and give updates to the issues as they are resolved. Have you had problems finding a game? Let us know below.
Street Fighter V is available now for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
