Street Fighter 6 Won’t Reset LP

In an interview with Inside Games, Producer Shuhei Matsumoto and Director Takayuki Nakayama of Street Fighter 6 confirmed that the game will not have LP reset. There will be a new mechanic in place instead. However, they did not go into details about it in the interview. They simply mentioned that the team will implement it soon. [Thanks, Inside Games!]

LP, or League Points, determine your rank in Street Fighter 6. Usually, in games with a ranked system, new seasons will reset a player’s rank or at least lower them back down so that they can work their way back up again. It seems that Capcom plans to do away with that in Street Fighter VI. It will also open up a Master League for high-level players.

Other tidbits from the interview include game balance. Nakayama said that the team plans on adjusting the game balance once per year. It will likely do so after major tournaments such as Capcom Cup, since it wouldn’t be a good idea for the meta to change during a competition. It will also fix bugs that the player base brings to their attention, as well as minor adjustments here and there. However, it will always inform the players about the reasoning behind the changes when it does so.

Street Fighter 6 is readily available on on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC. The new DLC character, Rashid, will join the game on July 24, 2023.
