Street Fighter V’s Terrible Launch Day
When I was playing my final retail copy of Street Fighter V before launch, everything was great when it came to its online functionality. Yesterday, it was abysmal. Disconnects everywhere, matchmaking was very slow, and for a while, didn’t work at all.
This sucks for everyone involved. Online games usually have problems at launch, but they ran the beta four times for this! Yet still, it breaks catastrophically. I’m guessing this will be fixed sooner rather than later, though this first night of Street Fighter V in the wild has been depressing.
