If there's one thing we hate more than anything else about playing online, it's quitters. Some gamers will happily take their wins, but literally pull the cable out of the back of the machine to avoid registering a loss. Capcom recognises this problem and has come up with a superlative answer, which will be implemented in the magificent-looking Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.
The game will keep an invisible stat which monitors your connection habits. If it notices you pulling the plug during online games, it will start marking your reputation down. No-one else will see it, but the utterly amazing outcome is this: Rage quitters will be matched up with other rage quitters, allowing everyone else to enjoy the game in peace. Amazing.

All the system needs to do now is pit the verbally offensive 12-year-olds against the other verbally offensive 12-year-olds. Then it should be licensed out to all the other online games in the whole world, at which point we would officially declare Capcom our most favouritest dev ever.
Look out for our review of Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds soon.
