News: Patch and Omen's colors

Hey there people

Edit: thanks to @TheKeits for the patch notes

Since @rukizzel didn’t post it on the news(Although it would be GREATLY appreciated for some visibility), I’m going to post here two recent news for the game

One, we recently had a super important patch which fixed the charged arrow crash.

One week ago, we got another Gold pack for Eyedol, Aria and Shadow Jago

Tomorrow, we may be getting more colors for Omen!

This news are important, and here in the forums we can give a lot of visibility to them. Seriously @rukizzel, please post these in the news section. It would be greatly appreciated

I agree. Where is he by the way? I am getting worried that he’s no longer on crackdown 3 but on lockdown fo’ 3. :smile:

Hiding in plain sight! mwahahah

For news you should make sure to check While we cross-post a lot of things we ultimately deem supremely newsworthy, you’ll notice that Skin Packs and Guardian sales generally are not on that list. Look out for the Omen post tomorrow morning around 9 am pdt!

But what of hotfixes? Same concept, different avenue. Those won’t end up on the website, unlike their larger Patch counterparts, and we’ll usually respond to established threads with the notes (or in this case a quick tweet) to chat with the affected folks.


Shouldn’t an announcement that fixes a game-breaking issue be posted to the official KI news website? What about the people who decided to give KI a break until that issue was fixed? Seems like a pretty important thing to tell people, and Twitter doesn’t reach everyone (I found out about it through word of mouth and had a hard time finding the patch notes when I tried to look).

EDIT - Ok, well, since it’s likely that tweet will get lost in the internet, I archived the patch notes for 3.8.2 (and all other patches) on my site:


I didn’t even know about it until I got home from work decided to turn ki on and found it needed an update lol


Here are the long-form patch notes from 3.8.2

Killer Instinct 3.8.2 Changes


• Fixed a bug that could cause the game to crash if you experienced a rollback while charging a Lv2 or Lv3 arrow during online play.
• Fixed a bug that allowed Eagle to fire instant charged arrows from his Wingspan -> HP move by getting hit out of charging an arrow.
• Made a correction on Eagle’s command list to show that his Ultra and Stage Ultra are input with a QCF motion, and not a DP motion.

No system or other character changes.


I guess that means Eagle still has the issue of the bird interrupting a Stage Ultra?

SO when is it live??? I dont see any colors… I dont see an update


Irrelevant to the topic, but something I’ve been wanting to ask you nonetheless. You often express your opinion as who you believe ranks where in the top five, or bottom bit of the tier list. Would you or have you ever considered keeping an updated tier list on your website?

On-Topic, for those wondering, Omen’s three colors cost $1.

i’m having beep sound while playing jago can you guys fix that too ? :’/

I’ve thought about it at various points, but I decided not to because saying “this character is low tier” could easily convince someone to not try, or give up on, a character they might otherwise really like.


SOMEBODY HEEELP i don’t see the omen color pack in the store :frowning:


It’s sold out bro, sorry… you’re too late. :disappointed:


I respect that, it could also lead to an influx of people forcing themselves the “top” character as is the case of Smash, well at least that’s how I see it.

As nice as it would be so that we as players can acknowledged and discuss the stance of characters and placement, it would certainly lead to toxicity. Most likely in the cases as to why a character is too low/weak, was nerfed the way they were and somehow use that as an excuse not to practice or figure out how to adjust as a player.

If you’re curious, here is my current KI tier list.

Mind if I start a thread on this?

go for it, palster

Im having trouble figuring out some of the abbreviations.

RASH S tier?

S: Aria, Mira, Omen, Rash
S-: Jago, Sabrewulf, Glacius, Thunder, Orchid, Fulgore, Maya, Riptor, Aganos, Hisako, Cinder, Kim-Wu, Tusk, Eyedol, Kilgore
A: Spinal, TJ, Raam, Arbiter, Gargos
A-: Sadira, Shago, Kan-Ra
??: Shin Hisako, Eagle

Yes, Rash S tier. I agree on that
