Prepare for potential toxicity, as Street Fighter 6 will include an indicator that demonstrates whether an opponent is playing on a wired system or with Wi-Fi. Despite having absolutely excellent rollback netcode, Capcom’s programming obviously can’t overcome a bad connection, and many fighting game fanatics feel players should use a wired Internet connection in order to ensure the best possible experience.

Obviously, the fighter is still perfectly playable over Wi-Fi, but as spotted on Twitter there is a little icon now which distinguishes wired connections from wireless ones. While we’d like to assume only those playing in the very upper-echelons of competitive play will be paying attention to this, we could potentially foresee some badmouthing and beef occurring as a result of this notification.

Hopefully that’s not the case, though, and people just use this as a useful tool to determine whether they’re going to get the best quality match-up or not. Personally, we reckon the addition of information like this is generally a positive thing, but as is always the case in life, it’s the people that use it who manage to turn it into a negative. Let’s hope Street Fighter 6 attracts a positive and friendly community – and not a toxic one!
