It looked like it will never come, but finally Street Fighter V Season 2 is here. Street Fighter V servers are back up, and all the changes are available in the game. Capcom gave an opportunity for players to download the update before the servers go up, so they can access it immediately. If you already downloaded the 9.7 GB update, you can already enjoy the full perks of Season 2. If you didn’t, what are you waiting for?
In adittion to Akuma and Holiday DLC content, some of the changes include the following:
Direct Input controller support
SFV on Steam now officially supports Direct Input controllers. You can access it in Other Settings section of Options.
Background Music Select
In Battle Settings, you’ll now be able to select your preferred music in Training and Versus Modes as well as Casual and Ranked matches.From classic to heavy metal sound, it’s all up to you.
Fighter Profile Radar Charts
Additional updates and fixes have been implemented into Fighter Profiles.
Updated Rage Quit System
The current Rage Quit System has resulted in a significant decrease in rage quitting. Capcom took this one step further and further addressed 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.
