Street Fighter V August and September 2016 Updates Detailed

street fighter v 08-15-16-1

Capcom has detailed both the August and September updates for Street Fighter V.

While this month’s update will include the rage-quitting penalty on August 16th, the September update adds lots of new features – like Daily Targets, colors for premium costumes, a VS CPU option, and more.

You can find all the details below:


Server maintenance will be performed on 8/16 from 1PM PT to 7PM PT. During this time online features of Street Fighter V will not be available. Thank you for your patience.


Rage Quitting Penalty

We are aware of the Rage Quitting issue, and this update will continue our efforts toward resolving it. We will make a second update to the existing Rage Quitting system with stricter guidelines for players who disconnect before the match is over. Players who are penalized will lose League Points and be locked out of online matching for a set time. The update will be implemented after the maintenance on 8/16.

Since the initial Rage Quitting system rollout, we have seen a rapid decrease in rage quitting players, and we believe that this new update will reduce that number even further. That being said, we’re still working on implementing a new, more robust system that will address the issue more completely by early next year.


We have another big update containing new features in the pipeline for next month, so we wanted to give you a sneak preview of all the cool things to come in September!

Double FM Event

Double Fight Money is happening! We appreciate your support for Street Fighter V, so we’re giving you the chance to double your FM earnings in Ranked Match! We will hold our first Double FM Event on the weekend of September 2-4th. Please stay tuned for more details!

Additional Features

The next September update will include:

  • VS CPU Option
  • Daily Targets
    • Daily challenges with Fight Money rewards!
  • Fighter Profile Updates!
  • Free colors for Season Pass holders
    • Colors 3-10 for Default and Battle costumes of the 6 DLC characters
  • Premium costumes will now include colors!
    • Colors 3-10 of the purchased premium costume
  • Color bundles available for purchase via FM or Real Money
    • All 22 Characters’ Default & Story Costumes Color Pack 3-10
  • And more to be announced!

Street Fighter V is currently available for PlayStation 4 and PC.

    They’re selling colors? What the fuck, i didn’t know they were nickel and diming people that much…

    You can buy with fight money, which is the freemium money. Which seeing as they are adding dailies and doing double FM events is actually pretty realistic now.

    Plus it should have always been you get all the colours when you buy an outfit/season pass

    Capcom can take their pro-SJW/feminist censoring stick and shove it back up their ass.

    >finally rolling out a proper punishment system for ragequitters

    Christ almighty, it only took them six months.

    …for some reason. This kind of system is in place for 100% of modern fighting games as soon as they launch or the online ranked component comes online. Six goddamn months it took them to do this.

    they were probably too busy watching and taking advice from Anita Sarkeesian’s videos

    It took them that long to implement a VS CPU mode?

    I think it’s more due to them chasing after the eSports/ESPN crap than anything else. Not that it matters much, since it’s still complete bullshit.

    Haven’t they been doing that since SF IV?

    And still no arcade mode. As it turns out KOFXIV is coming out earlier than SFV.

    “I think it’s more due to them chasing after the eSports/ESPN crap than anything else.”


    Capcom also made a statement a while ago that pretty much suggests that they’ll be on-board the SJW “diversity” train.

    Whilst the dictionary definition of ‘diversity’ sounds good, we all know that in reality the “diversity” they are pushing for is the SJW one that means “no men allowed or wanted”.

    How much stealth censorship will they add this time?

    There is no diversity in Japan so good luck to them trying to fill their quota without outsourcing. The usual meaningless corporate lies.

    Lost interest in SJW Scam Fighter V long ago ( Never bought it ). Already preordered King of Fighters XIV.

    It’s actually “we have to hire some women”.

    Which of course, completely discriminates against men.

    What happened to the process of the most qualified person gets the job?

    Now it’s gotten to the point where getting a job is dependant on what you have between your legs.

    If you have a penis – no thanks and go away
    If you have a vagina – yes please, the jobs yours

    Okay that article pissed me off.

    What the fuck is wrong with Capcom?! Yeah fuck creating a level play field for the most qualified people let’s just show favoritism towards women cause vagina. So men who busted their ass to earn the position are shit out of luck. Men who could’ve had something innovative to bring Capcom back to greatness are shunned and this isn’t misandry how? Why should men even bother to work hard or contribute anything for society?

    Women shouldn’t get a free pass in life because of vagina. If they want to be in top executive positions they should earn it like everyone else with no fucking hand holding. And no I am not saying women don’t deserve to be in high corporate positions but they have to work for it just like every man has to.

    What I wouldn’t give to see this SJW bullshit end.

    And this kind of ultra-pro-woman and anti-men bullshit (not just Capcom but in general, such as society and politics) will continue until enough men actually take a stand and speak up against it.

    Unfortunately men are too busy working hard, playing video games, watching porn and sucking up to their girlfriends/wives. While this is happening, the women/feminists have been busy working hard behind the scenes over the last 2 decades or so to ensure that the policies/laws they want is passed at the governmental level. Their laws are designed to benefit women and oppress men. This is exactly what has happened.

    SJWs/feminists have created such a fear-mongering atmosphere in society and politics that has made it so that men are frightened to speak out in fear of being labelled a “sexist” or “misogynist”.

    Then you have the other problem of the white-knights, manginas and cucks who really do think that women can do no wrong, and will defend them no matter what.

    If you live in a Western society like me (I am in the UK), you see this ‘anti-men’ shit all the time in the mainstream media and news media.
