I think that I can’t play KI anymore.
1 - I’m not as good as before: The game has changed so much that if I were to start over again either with a new account or by resetting everything I’ve earned, I wouldn’t get even half of it back. Throughout seasons 1 and 2 and early in 3, the game was different, I was still able to win a lot and have fun. After the second or third patch for season 3, the game became a fight based on patience and that gets boring. Nowadays I have one sided matches against people who are 100 times better than I have ever been. I’ll be sharing those matches soon.
2 - It doesn’t feel like KI: Regardless of what I say here, I already know that a lot of you will disagree with me and prove me wrong. Some stages are inaccurate (example, orchid’s stage, riptor’s stage), some themes are not accurate (examples of most accurate: cinders, orchids, spinals etc.), some retros are inaccurate and will never be fixed. Anyway, there’s a lot of things that feel off to me and of course the devs have their explanations as to why and that’s alright, I understand. Also I dislike the lack of retro stages. These are just my nitpicks, probably nothing too important.
Anyways guys, this game is probably just not for me. I know I’ve said it so many times that I’m going to stop playing but this time it’s for real. After so many chances that I gave myself with this game, I think I’ve finally reached the end, the furthest that I can go. This game causes me too much stress and it might be worse than I think. I really appreciate everything that all of you have done, from the help and advice to the good times you gave me.
I wish the best of luck to everyone who still enjoys this game and is looking forward to getting better. I hope this game continues to grow because after being gone for about 17 years, it deserves it. Like I said earlier, I’ll be posting those matches as soon as I have the time too, I already have some on youtube in my “The Untouchables” series. There’s nothing that can bring me back to playing KI and even though I won’t play it anymore, I’ll still be around here in the forums every now and then because some of you people are the only friends I have and it’s always nice to talk to you.
Good games everyone, fight on!
