I’ve recently bought KI, so I’m not sure if this was always the case, but whenever I boot the game it spends a huge amount of time doing its server calls. By extremely long I mean longer than Strive at launch. Now, I don’t think a fix or server maintenance is coming for an six year old game, but is there anything I can do to have a decent boot time? A program like Totsugeki or any specific port that needs forwarding? People have suggested starting the game in offline mode, but I want to play online so that’s a no-go. Any suggestions?
I have the same problem and it’s extremely annoying. People are suggesting using Steam in offline mode, what a PITA, MS should fix it
I’m having this same issue. It seems to mostly be affecting the Steam version of the game. Microsoft Store and Xbox go through this process rather quickly. I hope this gets addressed.
