I’ve been fretting having to make this post because I fear most would take it the wrong way and mostly because I already know nothing will change until after world cup; however I just can’t take it anymore and the rage is boiling up inside me. I am sick and tired of bugs ruining my game experience, especially bugs that directly impact the way the game and my character have to play and quite frankly it’s unacceptable.
The biggest Killer Instinct event in the world the KI World Cup is coming up yet there are still bugs that are detrimental to certain characters and could possibly make players lose games at an event that people are paying hundreds if not thousands to attend. The philosophy that players should have ample time to train up and prepare for the tournament without the hassle of balance patches is understandable however how does leaving bugs in a game that ruin a players ability to play the character okay?
You want us to report bugs in the bug forum yet there are bugs that were reported over a year ago several times that have still not been fixed. There are bugs that were removed but are now back into the game…like how does that even happen? Prime example being the input store that happens during Shadow Projectiles. You get auto locked out without even hitting a button, how is something like this not a top priority to fix?
Orchid - Still can’t hit confirm from max distance
Gargos - Still can’t explode half the time
Arbiter - Counter breakers still whiffing in the corner
Spinal - Skulls disappearing
RAAM - Flipout buffer
All Characters - Some shadow enders not cashing out in certain scenarios
… I would list more but you get the point
These are all huge problems for these characters, problems that can definitely decide the outcome of matches. We all know that bugs in video games are unavoidable and are just a byproduct of game development and they just happen and that’s fine; what isn’t fine is not fixing them in a timely manner. I’m sorry if I’m sounding like a jerk but when my fun is being sucked out of the game because I’m constantly having to play worse or play around bugs then enough is enough.
Again I apologize if I’m jumping the gun because for all I know these and other bugs could be fixed already in the patch that’s coming after KI Cup. I’m not upset at MS or IG in anyway, I’m just trying to have fun.
