the issue is if they’ll even decide to do it after the season is over.
Ultimates are more likely x-ray moves. If they follow shago’s style thats it. I wish they was like the brutalities from MKX but you know about the game rate and gore are not welcome… So let them be more like x-ray thing. Thats fine. But i hope they do right with Cinder. Burn your enemy with shadow inferno then it vanishes into ashes just like how the victim dies on Aganos stage ultra. Same for Fulgore with his devastation beam. Makes the enemy disintegrate in a blink of an eye using a blue beam. They can do a lot of good ultimates taking advantage of the particle system.
ALL I know is Ultimates were way higherpriority az comunity addition than CAM was
If Season Three comes with no Ultimate’s and they add say 3 more Stage Ultras and none added to the Season One Stages I say we riot!!!
We need more ways to finish fights or else after unlocking accessories (usually at level 25) unless your a competitive Tournament Gamer the replay value is gone.
Ultimaes should be as they are. Something you can pull off when the foe’s life bar is blinking.
If Ultimates are put in for additional characters, I think they should keep the input similar to Shadow Jago’s - pick a special move for the character, and trigger the Ultimate with that input and LP+LK.
I was considering what they I’d like to see IG do for Thunder’s, and I settled on the Call Of The Earth input, with an Ultimate which focuses on multiple COTE grab’n’smashes with multiple lightning strikes.
i think ultimates would be better as an input after the first or the second ultra
Same. Definatly Same.
I think they have an input on that. You bar must be in the green to do an Ultimate. Besides it won’t prvent the issue of rage quitting which happens online when the quitter is getting ultraed.
So… there yah have it!
The longer KI doesn’t have Ultimates or No Mercies, the more disappointed I am with this game.
It’s like I like the game’s characters, the fighting engine, the music. But it’ll never reach 100% Killer Instinct because of the absence of a single signature feature.
The demand is overwhelming, but majority voice continues to be ignored. If reallocating needs to be done within the game’s budget, then so be it. I really don’t get it.
But is it a signature feature… of Ki…? The ultimates and no mercies are just ripoffs Of Mk’s fatalities.
I honestly don’t care. Plus Since shago’s combo trait is useless, He got a replacement: His Ultimate.
So It’s kinda Shago’s thing now IMO.
His combo trait is useless?
I do feel disappointed if ultimates do not go for everyone. I’m sure they know there is a lot of us who want them in (myself included) but Ultimates may help make this game more Intresting. Not to mention it’d be a great alternative to 100 hit ultras which can get redundant and force people to quit. I know some people who are not for ultimates don’t consider that a big los, and they are free to think how they want to think, but some of us have been wanting them since season 1 and it’s time for something different to end a match.
Killer Instinct is still doing well in my book and if we can at least get more ultimates down the game’s life span (which hopefully lasts until the Xbox one’s is done) If we don’t get it this season then at least do it for season 4 or later. I doubt this feature would interfere with character inclusions because that’s goanna always happen.
Instead of a hundred hitnultrs,it can be a 70 hitnultra into an ultimate.
Maybe, bu I think just pulling off the ultimate during a normal coba would have the ultimate play and then make ti as swift as possible so that the looser doesn’t have to sit through it or even think about quitting.
And Jago is a ripoff of Ryu. KI’s entire button scheme is a ripoff of Street Fighter. Killer Instinct is a mash-up ripoff of a lot of different things/ideas ppl love.
Mortal Kombat is still the top selling fighting game today, and Fatalities/Brutalities are a major selling point as to why. So to not include Ultimates/No Mercies in the new KI, even though the KI franchise traditionally has them & are in high demand by fans, is hustling-backwards.
Ultimates aren’t just a Shago thing, it’s a Killer Instinct thing. Imagine if we waited this long for Ultra Combos, and only Fulgore had one… smh. I guess ppls justification would be “They’re too long anyway, and have no true effect on the match. Im more interested in real combos.”
Fan service, It goes a long way. Have we learned nothing from Deadpool?
I find it kinda funny when I see people debating how “hard” it is to actually make a new mechanic for a game, as for ultimates, the animations and stuff. Come on. It’s 2016. Look at the tools that exist for developing now. It was 1990s when people made an almost flawless game with characters, stages, combos, no mercies, ultimates, combo breakers, ultra combos, and a bunch more of stuff. And made it fit in a frigging Nintendo tape. Now how can we even discuss hard.
a fairly good point.
I just want to question why even let Shago HAVE an Ultimate if no one else is getting one? why make it even work on all stages? why do all that just for only ONE character?
in my opinion: if only one character gets an Ultimate. IG/MS have done NOTHING with Ultimates.
All we have now are just dull Ultras with same style animations with no dynamics to them, that can be EXTENDED to even LONGER combos with no real variety in it. Outside of just annoying the other player.
And a few stages with an occasional option to kill an opponent with the stage enviorment. Which means if you wanna TRULY finish off your opponent, you’ll have to limit your stage play. So expect to go play only on those stages if you want a truly satisfying victory in every match.
All that rambling aside I think I’m pretty much given up on the idea of more fun new ways to defeat my opponent ala Ultimates. I admit, they could of made KI that much closer to perfection for me. Still a hell of a lot better than other fighting games I’ve played though. But it’s a big disappointment and just pointless. I think they should’ve of just let Boss Shago keep the Ultimate.
They REALLY could of done so much with this, but they didn’t really bother.
KI won’t ever be perfect but it still better than most games in my opinion. sad to say we’re better off trying to make peace with this.
It’s probably going to come down to “we wanted to do Season 3 with this/that feature, so maps and Ultimates didn’t make the cut.” Hopefully whatever this is makes KI a better game.
I don’t care for Ultimates. Especially since the don’t even look good quality unlike the original Ultimate Shago had. Not only that but if every character gets an annihilation move with their ultimate I’d be more frustrated. Also if it means more things being cut from the season then I’d hate Ultimates even more.
