Street Fighter V’s April update adds Guile and a ‘rage quit’ solution

The sleeves are up!

For a guy in his mid-50s, Guile is looking ripped! He’s next in line to join the Street Fighter V roster and will arrive later this month as part of an update that also introduces the Air Force Base stage, addresses rage quitters, and touches up some of the game’s matchmaking issues.

This first DLC stage will cost 70,000 Fight Money, though season pass holders won’t have to worry about that, and Guile himself will be free for everybody until the Zenny shop opens.

As for quitters, Capcom is planning to roll out a system to “identify players who have high disconnect rates during matches,” notify them via in-game message, and “lock them out of matchmaking for a period of time.” Previously, the company penalized bad apples who had an “80-90% disconnect rate.”

Additionally, “Many users should have an easier time creating and connecting to Battle Lounges and we are also loosening the restrictions on finding an opponent. We know users in Europe and other parts of the world have experienced some issues finding opponents and this should help increase the amount of battles coming their way.”

And in case you were wondering, yes, Guile’s theme song is still the shit.
