Just wanted to come on here to complain about one of the most obvious things IG never cared about(of many), the computer. Why is it that whenever i play the computer, its full on cheat mode for them no matter what? Whatever you input they always perfectly counter it, however perfect your combos are, even all manuals, they always break it, you can’t counter break them, because they instantly cheat and don’t input the breaker they were about to whenever you counter break. I don’t even like counter breaking, I just did it to test how full on cheat mode they turned the computer in to.
I play on ultimate kyle or whatever it is, however all the difficulties do this, just to a lesser degree. How does IG expect anybody to learn to play the game when they literally allow the computer to read every input and instantly counter it. Why not just have the computer have the skills of a top player and just not allow it to read every input and instantly put the counter in? Was that so hard to comprehend for them? Basic common sense. Again, if somebody can do the best combos pretty much on demand, all manuals, mixes, varying strengths on every successive option, etc, how does IG expect a new player to learn against the computer?
Some people, like me, don’t like to play online because most of online, that I’ve encountered are just serious mashers and have no clue what they’re actually doing, playing against that makes you a worse player when you are trying to actually learn the game. Later on once you learn the game you can dumb yourself down to beat those brain dead players however in the beginning it really stunts any fun of actually trying to learn the game.
Don’t get me wrong, I lab mostly, its just whenever I do want to actually play, there isn’t any option, with all the mashing online(most of that thanks to no dojo for each char, computers that cheat and combo assist), and the cheating computer, again all of IG’s glorious lazyness constantly on show. Not only that, but instead of giving us basic things like an online lab so people can actually learn with each other and teach other people, they gave us some pve crap nobody that played KI for KI likes, sure if you like pve good for you, but I certainly didn’t play the best pvp game out there to play some giant pve thing meanwhile all the tools to actually pvp and learn to pvp are no where to be seen.
Thanks IG, the gift that never stops giving, you guys were given an amazing game and barely did anything outside of minor balancing to contribute to it over the years, then complained when people complained about the obvious lack of care shown for their favorite game. All smoke and mirrors, no actual tools to enhance the actual KI experience not to mention all the other cosmetic things missing from the game…
And after spending all that time and money that ms gave them to work on the game, they spent it on PVE, then they just up and leave the game because it failed, no wonder, the giant pve thing didn’t make your pvp game successful, who woulda thought?
I just get sick and tired of people complimenting IG when all they did was smooth over an already great game they were given and basically do nothing else for it over years, then just up and leave it half way done with all the important parts for it to last long, be successful and grow the community missing. Not sorry for the rant, its been long coming for me, however this is mainly about all the important parts about the game that are missing that they obviously showed no care to implement.
