Street Fighter 5 Season 2 Update Changes Revealed

Season 2 of Street Fighter 5 is now here.

Posted By | On 20th, Dec. 2016

Capcom have finally come out and officially revealed the many changes that Street Fighter 5 will be getting with its massive Season 2 update via a post on Capcom Unity. The changes will include an update to the game’s rage quit system, which has long been found wanting, as well as Direct Input controller support on Steam for the PC version.

There are also some massive changes being made to the characters, which should ensure that players who play competitively will be kept on their toes. Collectively, the Season 2 changes should keep the game fresh and keep its following in the competitive scene vibrant.

Street Fighter 5 is available on PS4 and PC exclusively. You can check out the full patch notes for the Season 2 update here; for character specific tweaks, you can check out Capcom’s rather handy character guide PDF here.

Direct Input controller support

We are happy to announce that Street Fighter V on Steam now officially supports Direct Input controllers. You’ll find this in the Other Settings section of Options.

Background Music Select

In Battle Settings, you’ll now be able to select your preferred music in Training and Versus Modes as well as Casual and Ranked matches.

Fighter Profile Radar Charts

Additional updates and fixes have been implemented into Fighter Profiles.

Updated Rage Quit System

The current Rage Quit System has resulted in a significant decrease in rage quitting. That said, we always planned to take this one step further and are ready to further address the issue with this update. In addition to losing League Points and being locked out of online matchmaking for a set time, the following additions have been made to the system:

  • Matchmaking Update – Players who frequently disconnect during matches will now be more likely to be matched up with other players who exhibit similar behavior. The same applies for honorable players who rarely, if ever disconnect; they will be matched up with similar players.
  • Player Profile Icons – The worst offenders and the most honorable players will also have a special icon displayed on their Fighter Profiles.
  • League Points Deduction – Anytime a player disconnects during a match, their League Points will be deducted as if it was a loss.
