Street Fighter V June Update Brings Matchmaking Improvements: Here's What To Expect


The June update for Street Fighter V will address issues related to matchmaking.

Street Fighter V is a fighter video game co-developed by Capcom and Dimps. The game was released for Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows in February 2016. Street Fighter V received a lot of popularity in the gaming industry but the game has also received some criticism over issues related to rage quitters and matchmaking.

Many gamers complained of long waiting times when searching for an opponent through matchmaking.

"As for matchmaking, maybe I'm missing something but what I don't get is if it's a problem with my router or connection or something then how come I can still find opponents (the issue is that search times for matches vary between 5-30 minutes)," complained a gamer.

Capcom announced that matchmaking was working fine for most of the gamers. However, the company also acknowledged that some players have been facing issues with matchmaking.

"Much like the last update, matchmaking for both Ranked and Casual modes is working as intended for most users, but we do understand this is not the case for some players in Europe, the Middle East and various other regions," said Capcom.

The game developer also announced that it has made several improvements to reduce wait time.

Capcom has now announced that the June update, which will be released toward the end of this month, will brings improvements to Street Fighter V matchmaking.

Here are some of the improvements that gamers should expect in the Street Fighter V June update.

Matchmaking Preferences

Capcom acknowledged in a recent post that matchmaking preference was not working efficiently for many gamers since the game was released.

"This includes hardware preference settings, connection quality settings and being matched with other players far outside of your League Point range. These issues have now been resolved," said Capcom.

Matchmaking Speed

The game developer noted that players' League Points had not been synchronizing on all servers, which may have caused the longer wait times for players trying to find a match. The June update will fix this issue and gamers should find a match faster than before.

Smarter Matchmaking

Matchmaking will be smarter following the June update as Capcom has also improved matching logic, which is based on the players' League Points. After the update, gamers will be matched with players who have similar skill. Capcom has also made enhancements to location-based matchmaking, along with an increased range of qualified match candidates.

Match Quality

The game developer has also made improvements to the connection range settings (1-5) and it should reflect the quality of matches more accurately.

It remains to be seen if Street Fighter V gamers are happy with the improvements made to matchmaking in the June update.
