Early adopters of Street Fighter V have encountered a handful of technical issues in Capcom’s brawler sequel that has threatened to tarnish the experience, most notably matchmaking trouble and server woes.
In response, the publisher has labelled server stability a priority as it begins to address early concerns, and we now have word of a new series of fixes coming to both PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the mascot fighter.
Online connectivity – login and intermittent connectivity issues should be less frequent as the service stabilizes now that all platforms and regions have launched.
Matchmaking issues – the issue should be fixed now as the team identified the root cause and have implemented a server side fix few moments ago. Please check https://mobile.twitter.com/sfvserver for the latest updates and server status
Fighter ID corruption – a small number of PC users have reported their Fighter ID getting corrupt after account registration. We’re aware of this issue and will have a fix in place shortly to prevent this from happening further.
At the time of writing, the latest update from the SFV‘s Twitter indicates that Capcom has placed a laser focus on the game’s Battle Lounge feature, with players struggling to connect online and invite friends. Now, the feature is stable, though Capcom cautions that players should still expect some inconsistencies for the time being.
