SFV - Do you even play online?


I’ll give them the benefit of a doubt. After all MvC3, SF4 and SF5 weren’t developed by Capcom unlike the upcoming MvCI.


Canada’s internet infrastructure is some of the worst out there. I’m surprised you don’t have trouble with other fighting games.

In any case, have you checked whether you’re getting relayed or direct fights? Look at the little icon on the bottom of the screen when you go into a fight. If it’s not two dots joined by a wiggly line (see screenshot below for how it’s supposed to look), then you’re getting relayed connections, which 9 times out of 10 means you’re in rollback city.


If you are in fact not getting direct connections, try forwarding TCP and UDP ports 7777,7778,15000 and 5000, then try again. If you’re still getting relays, then I dunno.

If you are in fact getting relays, it’s supposed to be borderline. Not really Capcom’s fault, I don’t think you can do relayed fighting games unless all your moves are 20+ frames or something.


2 victorias? where dey at :heart:


Everyone complains of lag and nobody picks the training stage. There’s significantly more lag on stages other than the training stage.


Obligatory screw SF5 play KOF post


Why does this need bumping, and why do you think Training Stage magically solves poverty internet?


Because he’s an idiot.
I’ve played people twice and more in a row once on my training strage and the second time on their airplane or whatever and the netcode remains shit.
There’s not less frames dropping and not less rollback in these cases, so it’s pretty clear that only picking training stage doesn’t solve anything and the fault does not lie in the consumer’s stage selection, but in Capcom’s incompetence.


Obligatory you go play KOF and piss off post.


Settle down, killer. The thread was featured at the top of the page, otherwise I wouldn’t have even noticed it.

Rollback netcode is resource intensive. I can tell you the ps4 already has a hard time running this game so any stage with a lot going on can contribute to the amount of lag you experience. Yes a bad connection is a bad connection but a good to decent connection can be made worse by playing on stages with a lot of activity due to the extra resources the hardware needs to use to render the backgrounds. Ever notice the game starts to lag a bit more during certain v triggers like Necalli’s?

I never made the claim that the training stage will just magically make a bad connection playable. You also have people with bad internet streaming netflix and all other types of nonsense while playing. Bad pc’s are also a factor. Still, none of you guys use the training stage even though it’s better, even if only slightly better.


Mid Michigan and the only time my matches get laggy is between 4-6am EST when the opponets are from overseas. Northern Canada? if you live within pissing distance from the North Pole you cant expect much


Here’s a familiar scenario for me with this pos game. So I’m playing ranked and get matched with someone with a shitty connection. Win points, lose points whatever I don’t care but I never wanna play that person again. Of course what happens next- I get matched with him again, again, again, and it never ends. Now I just close the game when I get paired with these people and proceed to lose hundreds of points every time. I’d rather disconnect than suffer through yet another unplayable match.

If these morons at Capcom had any sense they could just solve this problem by having ranked lobbies just like in SF4. Someone joins, if you don’t wanna play them just kick them problem solved. Have a “same region” option and it’s even better AGAIN just like in 4. Of course since all this is common sense they will never do any of it. The whole online element of this game is a complete joke.


The inconsistency is what really grinds my gears.
Today I fought a Guile that I fought a couple of weeks ago, when our connection sucked ass and was full of bullshit rollback on my side.
But hey today we play and the connection is alright. No big rollbacks, not too much delay.


I don’t play online, online plays me, 5 bars play like 3, jumping in is free, matchmaking takes a century.


I can’t raise my precious League Points if I don’t play online.


I never post in this section anymore. But I still like to lurk just to keep up with whether or not the majority of people’s experience with the game improves or not. The game has been out for 14 months and it will be 2 years in July since the online beta program started. And nothing has improved at all. More and more people have issues to the point to where I just don’t understand why anyone bothers anymore. Capcom isn’t going to do shit to fix it as long as people continue to settle for their subpar products. Basically, stop getting your hopes up that Capcom will “do better next time”. Because that’s what everyone has been saying for almost a decade(if not more) now.


“Capcom doesn’t cares”

So thats why we get new Servers and a re-worked CFN, because Capcom doesn’t care, thats interesting.


“But Capcom gave us new servers so the online must be better now!!”

Meanwhile number of people with terrible experiences involving shit connections increases, some of which weren’t even having before


Trys to change the point, when he’s been proven wrong.

I should become politician, seems to be the perfect job for me.


You read what I said as “Capcom doesn’t care”. You didn’t get the point to begin with. The point is that Capcom is incompetent much like your reading comprehension.

I’ve made my statement and if you have a problem with it then by all means go ahead and waste your time trying to pointlessly argue. Obviously you disagree with me so whatever.


All I say is: if you have shaite connection please please please with cherry on top ask for 5 bars or more.
I am in Taiwan which has “holyfuqomgbbq” good connections, I personally have a 500 Mbps connection and I’m not even spending top money for it.
So my online is usually smooth as Dave Chapelle’s balls, yet sometimes I get matched with some other people from SEA and I get some terribly laggy matches, the other day I got a match against a Dhalsim that was superlaggy and while at it we were on the airplane stage which gets me dizzy… Now I don’t wanna point fingers… but I do and I bet this asshole is fully aware of the situation and exploits it
