Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Rage Quitter vs Honourless Bastard... FIGHT!

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.

Above: This could actually teach idiots the errors of their ways. Oh, that text is photoshopped on by the way

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.

    Capcom are talking some serious sense right now. I wonder how they can sleep at night with the entire light of the sin shining underneath their bedcovers, from their arse...

    FanofSaiyan, i'd think they'd have to have a pretty damn unstable conn for it to get them registered as a constant, or even frequent rage-quitter. SF matches are hardly a lengthy affair. Plus if it's so unstable they can hardly stay in a match in the first place, being against others that can't last would make no difference. L4D vs needs something like this like Bill O' needs a train to the face. Take note Valve. And good on ya Capcom, clearing the internets of tossers.

    That's cool with me. Hopefully now we can get on a system the douchebags with the modded controllers and/or turbo joysticks passing it off as skill. The way I look at it this just gives them a reason to cheat and be vindicated for it.

    That would be amazing if they could do that for either A) Call of Duty B) Halo... It seems like whenever I'm doing my best in a match, the host always leaves when there's less than a minute left.

    The true thing you should hate more than rage quitters is anyone who uses online voice chat. Freaking cancer of the industry.

    Yay. Now let's see how long MvC3 lasts until the lobbies are desolate. When I try to play MvC2 online (which is rare because I suck) there is nobody. Even when I start a lobby, no one will join. But enough of that old game. Really excited about this and it'll rule, I'm sure.

    My Internet connection randomly disconnect after SSF4 matches, literally RIGHT after it end when it's ending the info, and I get yelled at for it. This will suck for me.
  • Robusken - January 11, 2011 11:49 p.m.

    Wow...thats awesome.
  • NappyAfro - January 11, 2011 11:45 p.m.

    Something like this was in Dead or Alive for. It marked down your dependability by showing exactly how many times you disconnected, regardless of it being rage quitting or just a bad connection.
  • NightCrawler_358 - January 11, 2011 11:06 p.m.

    Cool idea! I don't rage quit but sometimes i get so angry at people who take video games so seriously and act like total jerks online. I have a life offline! ... its called singleplayer.
  • AdonisX82 - January 11, 2011 10:07 p.m.

    shadowreaper- exactly what i said... And again, "my connection fails", well it seems to me it fails at the mighty convenient moment just before you lose. Tres bizarre, no?
  • Hazgibbon - January 11, 2011 9:46 p.m.

    Thing is, sometimes I get connection issues which makes my internet connection die at random moments, so somethimes it looks like rage quitting. Pretty annoying.
  • santaclouse37 - January 11, 2011 9:36 p.m.

    This idea is incredible. Also, my captcha is so spectacularly f*cked up, only a link to a picture of it will do it justice: Seriously, even if you can read that, how are you supposed to type it in?
  • shadowreaper72 - January 11, 2011 7:59 p.m.

    To all the people saying your internet disconnects on you, if its that crappy then you should have no busness playing online. Shell out the extra cash and get better internet.
  • JLThatshilarious - January 11, 2011 7:26 p.m.

    12 year olds wouldn't play this game, they'd call it "gay". Which is wrong, because there is more awesomeness in a single strawberry on Arthur's boxer's than there is in the entire Call of Duty series.
  • Voltanis - January 11, 2011 6:24 p.m.

    This feature NEEDS to be in Super Street Fighter IV yesterday!
  • rabidpotatochip - January 11, 2011 6:01 p.m.

    People actually unplug their network cables when they're going to lose? Yikes... On the plus side, I'm putting an amazing new accessory on the market: a foot pedal that blocks your console's Internet connection as long as you hold it down. Only $29.95!
  • pr0tostar - January 11, 2011 5:46 p.m.

    This is the best thing to come out of Capcom since over the shoulder shooting.
  • AdonisX82 - January 11, 2011 4:48 p.m.

    To the qustion "what about those with bad internet connections", well, if their connections are bad to the point that they lose connection that often, they probably should'nt be playing online anyways
  • Crabhand - January 11, 2011 4:30 p.m.

    I've never run into many quitters in a fighting game (because I'm entirely bad enough that the match could swing either way), but it is cool to see a system like this implemented.
