Capcom has implemented much needed anti-rage quit punishments into Street Fighter V and in doing so sent the world’s top-ranked player back to Bronze status.
Players that were quitting a match before a loss could be assigned found that as of last week, Capcom was removing League Points from their stats. Prior to this, a player could quit before being given the loss and suffer no ill consequence.
Reported by Event Hubs, China’s WORLD_COMBO was one of the first players to reach Super Platinum status which requires earning 100,000 League Points through competitive online matches.
Prior to the League Point adjustment, you can see WORLD_COMBO topping the leaderboard in screenshots taken by Event Hubs’ John ‘Velociraptor’ Guerrero.
This drop moved the previous leader from Super Platinum status down to Bronze.
Street Fighter V is available now on PC and PlayStation 4.
