The long-awaited Street Fighter V beta has launched, and look how happy the PS4 players are(n’t).
Street Fighter V more like Server Fighter V amirite.

Practicing a really neat combo on the @StreetFighter V beta. XXXXXX, it's the combo you do over and over trying to log in to the game server

Street Fighter V beta server still not working ? just fix it @Capcom_Unity @Capcom_UK

With servers going up and down, and Capcom taking the game offline to try and fix things, players are losing any patience they once had.
30 minutes in. Still haven't made it to the character select screen. Maybe we're just supposed to be testing the new logo? #SFV #SFVBeta

So what the fuck is up with Street Fighter V? Couldn't reach the game server even once

But some people do manage to find a postive where others only see negative.
Don't worry guys, the PS4 dashboard has instructions on how to play #SFV #SFVBeta pic.twitter.com/Gx5vBBU27t

Look on the bright side: at least we know that Street Fighter V actually has a server…it just happens to be disconnecting everyone.

TNW’s Editor-in-Chief Martin Bryant got into practice mode once, but other than that, no further than the title screen.
