Street Fighter V Patch and DLC

CapCom Unity announces that Season 2 is now underway in Street Fighter V. This includes what they call a "huge" update to the game, as well as the release of a holiday DLC pack. The DLC is only available until January 17th, and this update has all the details on all that it includes. The new version also updates the rage quit system to further punish the cowards who duck losses:
Updated Rage Quit System
The current Rage Quit System has resulted in a significant decrease in rage quitting. That said, we always planned to take this one step further and are ready to further address the issue with this update. In addition to losing League Points and being locked out of online matchmaking for a set time, the following additions have been made to the system:

  • Matchmaking Update - Players who frequently disconnect during matches will now be more likely to be matched up with other players who exhibit similar behavior. The same applies for honorable players who rarely, if ever disconnect; they will be matched up with similar players.
  • Player Profile Icons - The worst offenders and the most honorable players will also have a special icon displayed on their Fighter Profiles.
  • League Points Deduction Anytime a player disconnects during a match, their League Points will be deducted as if it was a loss.
