    Player 1 wins all encounters when 2 moves become active at the same time. One exception is Kung Lao, whose spin and x-ray will win out regardless of position.
    edit: Another exception is projectiles.

  3. So it's not actually random after all? If so that's fucking retarded.

    It was like this in smash bros brawl as well. Top players would fight over the first controller slot due to trade situations favoring them.

    Paulo once posted here that it starts off random and then switches back and forth every 10 frames. You're positive that's not the case?

    Wait, you don't mean online? You mean player 1 has an advantage offline?

    I'm guessing this isn't the case in SCV/KoFXIII/SFxT...etc?

    It is probably MK specific because most other fighters (from what I understand) have trades. As in, when two attacks become active on the same frame, both players take the hit. In MK9 only one player takes the hit.

    I doubt there's anyway they could patch trades in?

    This isn't offline is it? If so this really discredits the game.

    LOL. Explains why I've been losing every JIP trade as player 2. Fucking NRS, god damn. Guess we're going to be fighting over the player 1 slot now. Awesome.

    Rock, paper, scissor or coin toss? I guess we'll have a judge flip a coin. Only way to make it 'fair'.

    you had Player 1 and Kung Lao vs CD jr ...

    I mean Ive seen majors won by players on the player 2 side... If this can be fixed that would be great otherwise this is far from a deal breaker imo.

    lol. I think if I were somberness and I found this I would have just not said anything. Now everytime I get beat out of something I'm going to be salty.

    I don't blame him for posting it, just saying that this can really have an astronomical effect on the game.

  20. Ok so what? I was just saying Check told me about this like almost a year ago has nothing to do with anything. Smh of course you are just hunting for something to start some shit over.

  21. Makes sense, however shitty it is, and certainly explains a lot. Offline is it just a coin toss, or is there some logic to it?

    In SCV they have clashes which mean if 2 moves hit at the same time both players would get nothing unless you dialed in another hit in which case the 2nd hit will hit.

    according to Check this was balanced by the second player recovering faster defensively.

    Player 1 has offensive advantage, Player 2 has defensive advantage.

    Or it could be the case where it randomly switches every frame and it just happened that Somberness got a ton of player 1 wins in a row.

    who knows.
