the whole top 50 @ playstation are above 1000 plays and they keep playing it and going up. so whoever says the online experience is unplayable needs to do something about their connection.
the game is very much playable
if the game was really that bad ( online wise ) why are we bothering playing? . the number one is already in 4k and more. people ARE playing with less issues.
BUT like I mentioned before this game needs ONE more patch to sort the problem with lag against peple in green bars and blue bars.
I live in the tri-state area on the east coast. There should be plenty of people close to me. Comcast is my ISP. I only play on a wired connection. I even go so far as to take my router out of the equation & connect my xbox directly to the modem. I've done everything I can on my end.
I use to tell myself the netcode was fine too after the patch provided I played 3-4 bars only. After finishing no & I mean literally NO intermediate combos online with 3-4 bars I decided I play the computer a few times. Since I know that doing a combo in battle is much different than training mode. I landed all my combos consistently on the computer so my execution wasn't the issue. I said all that just to say I'm not some guy playing on wireless with 3 computers on downloading torrents complaining about lag.
So I asked myself would I keep playing with this connection if I was playing SF4. I wouldn't. I'd kick the person & look for a better connection. The problem is there is no better connection to look for in this game. And I only play 3 bars +
Like I said If you're playing online & find it playable then I urge you to continue. I'm in no way trying to convince anyone who finds this playable online besides SNK. I love this game and would like to see it grow in popularity. The fact that I've taken the time out to register on this site & type out this waay too long post should say that.
I'd like to think I've been patient with SNK waiting for the KoF12 patch. Then waiting for a WHOLE NEW GAME. Then waiting for another patch just for online to be on the level of other games released years before it.
