Lag - whoever invented it should die.
And, yeah, I know it wasn’t invented.
…doesn’t make it suck any less, though.
If you suffer from lag issues while playing KI that cost you a match, feel free to vent about it here. Maybe it’ll help you feel better.
As for everyone else who’s lucky enough to not suffer from it? Well, enjoy our horror stories.
I just had a 1st-to-10 set with a really great top 32 player, who was both fun to fight against and, thankfullly, very polite - B3Bo COX. I had no issues with him whatsoever, and even managed to garner 2 wins off of him using Aganos against his Spinal.
What really bothered me was that intermittent lag, or frame-rate stutter, would cost me a few of the matches. I would see an attack that I could combo-break (and we’re not talking lights and manuals here - we’re talking about mediums, heavies, and spectral manuals), attempt it, and NOT push any buttons after AT ALL, and watch as I would auto-lockout nearly a full second and 2 of B3Bo’s moves later, where the lockout would register for that current move and not the move where I actually attempted the break. As far as I know, there is no other explanation for this. After it happened once, I tested it, and it happened again at least 3 more times.
It was a truly raw deal. Had it not been happening, I’m certain I would’ve won 2 or 3 more matches. SIGH
I’ll see if I can upload 1 of the matches with the inputs turned on so you can see it for yourself, but I highly doubt it would be accurate because of the lag (which is just so convenient… ).
EDIT: Yep, all the replays I need are bunk… :’(
