Keits was pretty generous just using the Jago example because there are a ton of other embarrassing community reactions. Season 2+ history was basically a collection of changes that turned out to be really good that every jobber in the community insisted was horrible and would kill the game.
Yup, exactly. And while they took those 4 months, people would be saying "They're not listening.. It's been 4 months why haven't they done anything about it.. Clearly they don't care and don't know how to balance games.. It's obvious it's broke" and stuff like that.
Firstly it would never have been brought back if it wasn't for Microsoft. Secondly - it wasn't restricted to Xbox it had crossplay with PC and it was done very well.I've watched this through 3 times now.
I honestly think that if KI got the same support financially like MK, and wasn't restricted to be Xbox One exclusive and a launch title back then, it would've be the best fighting game of all time! The things that held this game back was all Microsoft stuff.
If they are to make a sequel, the dream would be that it was released on several platforms, have crossplay between them, and a solid story mode ala NRS quality (as the standard bar). Then there are all the minor things, like more costumes/gear customisation and such, but that's just extra stuff that could be added over time.
The gameplay itself doesn't need to be changed all that much, and the roster (minus the guest characters... maybe except Rash) is pretty solid already, so a few more new additions would be more than enough, imo. But overall, there's not much I think needs to be made different, just some better graphics, character models and stuff like that.
