Street Fighter 5 Server Issues Resolved But More Work Still to Do, Capcom Says

"As many of you know, there were some issues with the Street Fighter V servers."


Following a statement earlier this week, Capcom has again spoken up to say that most of Street Fighter V's server issues have been resolved, following the fighting game's somewhat rocky launch on Tuesday. In a blog post today, Capcom acknowledged that some people may still be having some problems, and reported that there is "still a lot left to optimize" to make the experience smoother overall.

"As many of you know, there were some issues with the Street Fighter V servers but we're happy to report that the majority of those issues have now been resolved," Capcom said. "That said, we know there is still a lot left to optimize and not everyone's experience has been the same."

Capcom also provided a rundown of what it's been working on since launch. Below are the key bulletpoints, as written by Capcom.


  • 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.

Battle Lounge

  • 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.

Match Results

  • 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.

Replay Search

  • 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.

Further still, the following issues are on Capcom's radar:

  • 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.

Finally, Capcom thanked fans for their patience and said it will circle back with updates regarding the progress it's making through subsequent blog posts in the days ahead.

One other item that Capcom plans to address for Street Fighter V involves "rage-quitting." Right now, people who leave a match early are not penalized, but Capcom said earlier that a solution is on the way.
