I loved SL and played it daily until S3 dropped and 4 other guys and myself have a bug to were our Labs will not connect or save data. So we cant play it anymore.
They are trying to fix it but nothing has worked so far.
But when it did work It was my favorite and its the best learning tool in the game. A lot of new players get bodied and frustrated on line against humans. No worries int eh Slab but close to the same difficulty.
Yeah unfortunately its me and 4 other guys that have over 1500 recordings and 500 matches (W/L).
I had to delete my shadows in hope that would help when the hot fix dropped with Eyedol and it still didnt work. So now Im totally erased fro the lab until I can get back in one day.
It works on my alternate profile but I dont want to play on that profile.
I think the 500 and 1000 shadow point guys are few becasue its based off your total matches and win %. If someone goes 100-2. they are probably going to be 1000 point shadows. But they have never explained the details of how and why so who knows…but thats my guess.
Wow I hope thats not the case. Otherwise I feel like it would be almost impossible to get a 1000 point shadow simply due to having no control over when your shadow will fight someone whether they are prepared or not.
Well I dont mean to the T… just an exaggerated example. You would at least have to have over 100 wins with less losses. Most shadows with that many wins have twice as many losses. the only shadows with a winning percentage is usually a new shadow with only a handful of fights
Shadows is fundamentally a super solid idea and when it works it’s awesome. But it’s rough around the edges and I don’t play it often.
Too much loading. Seriously, every time you fight someone it’s back to the lab to download a bunch of info again etc. argh.
You can’t fight against shadows with any character other than one if your own Shadows.
Instead of making me pick individuals or do random survival let me say “I want to play against Hisako.” Then set me up against a series of escalating point value Hisako shadows. How good would that be?
I played the crap out of shadow labs before I got locked out when season 3 dropped. I had a 250 TJ that I was very proud of too. One day soon I hope I can play it again under my profile, but until then the 5 of us are banished to the shadow realm.
Hey Seraph who else is locked out besides you, me & stan the man? I kinda want to make a plaque with our names on it.
I talked to the main guy who does Shadows for the team at EVO (sorry, his name escapes me). He said the challenge with getting a high point shadow is essentially that as a shadow becomes “popular” enough to get that high, everyone and their mother challenges it, and subsequently beats it back down. Basically, becoming too highly ranked makes it such a target that it almost inevitably will get beaten back down to a less prominent position. I believe he said they were trying to think of ways to avoid having all shadows fall into that trap.
there is a new in-game currency you earn by playing shadow lords, not sure what it’s called; I simply wished it was related to shadow points which are already in the game, but sounds like its not.
so many in-game currencies
I hope the same thing, but they haven’t said anything.[quote=“TheMunin, post:14, topic:12989, full:true”]
Didn’t they say there were doing exactly that? You could either spend real money to buy boosts or spend shadow points?
As of now, nothing has been said that connects Shadow Lords and the Shadow Lab. While I’m excited for the SL mode, it is sort of a bitter pill to swallow to know that they haven’t connected the 2 things, and that Shadows will be staying segregated in the Lab.
It’s not even that I think shadow lords is unfair,(the new currency looks easy enough to acquire); I just wish there was more reasons for people to use the shadow lab. I first suspected that the team of 3 characters in shadow lords would be you and your 2 shadows, but it’s actually just you playing as all 3, (which I honestly prefer, but the former would be a cool option), So naturally I’m a bit underwhelmed.
I actually think most people who are knowledgeable about the Shadow Lab mode are bummed about ‘Shadows’ not being the Shadow Lords mode. It is an obvious omission. Shadows should be the foundation on ALL the AI controlled opponents in KI, and it just seems obvious that they would expand on it, rather than just keep the status quo and let them sit.
IMO they should make uploading Shadow Brain data a seamless process that happens in the background rather than an “opt in” thing that only some people do. If you make a shadow, and play with that character in whatever mode, your “avatar” should be kept up to date.
I always got the feeling that some players don’t want to make a shadow because then their competition could fight their shadows & learn their habits. The option to not make one is ok with me, because choice is always a good thing.
So yesterday I got to 500 sp value on survival and at that point it just looped redbullgiwings’s Jago or whatever his name is. If you guys play Survival do you just drop at that point? I beat his Shadow 4 times and jumped out.
No offense to him as a player but I don’t see how his shadow has so many wins lol.
