Capcom continues to reveal new details about the big update coming to Street Fighter V next week. The latest information regards improvements to matchmaking, which Capcom says will be faster and more likely to get you into a good match.
There are four aspects to what’s changing with matchmaking, according to a Capcom blog post. Because League Points weren’t correctly synchronizing, the game could take longer to find you a match than it should. Capcom says this has been fixed, meaning you’ll spend less time waiting for a match once the update rolls out.
Quality-wise, issues involving matchmaking preferences have been resolved. That means matchmaking should do a better of job of connecting you with a player of similar skill. Additionally, the connection range has been adjusted and should “more accurately reflect the quality of incoming matches.”
Whether this all works as intended remains to be seen, but we don’t have to wait long to find out–the June update is scheduled for release sometime next week. Besides these matchmaking fixes, it introduces Story mode, a new character, and new outfits and level variations.
All of this is meant to serve as part of Capcom’s attempt to fix the game. But while Capcom is aware the game is in need of improvement, don’t expect future updates to be delivered at a rapid pace; the company has made it clear its focus is on quality, not speed.
