Oh wow, yeah I see that lag spike around the 44-minute mark. That was purely for the spectators, I had no lag so I doubt Roethor did either. That happens a lot of R1pper's stream. not sure what causes it.That was a lot of fun guys, and thanks for the games!
I recorded the two hours I was there, which is now up on YouTube:
So do we want to set Saturdays at 4:00 pm eastern as the standard time for these Kasuals? And do we want to do this weekly? I also recommend we set it to a Private King of the Hill to avoid randoms joining.

At least offline, I haven't had any issues like what I'm describing above on PC. I really do hope it's just me though, and that it's something I can adjust to.Is there an issue with the PC and inputs? I've never had that issue with the game playing on the Xbox, personally. Not sure if others encounter the same issue

No, I didn't fall asleep at all; thanks for the informative read. I am using a 60Hz monitor, playing in 1080p, and in-game I have dynamic resolution off and both Vsync and Frame Skip on. As I recall, Frame Skip is forced on with online play regardless.I'm done rambling about stuff I only half know about, and sure that anyone that tried reading it fell asleep along the way.
Well, good luck. Most of that I cooked up over playing around with some issues and several monitors with differing abilities, and thinking through stuff. It's not like it's authoritative.No, I didn't fall asleep at all; thanks for the informative read.

I actually posted on the official Discord asking for feedback, and some of the guys there watched some matches, and they're convinced it was not the game in these instances, but myself. Basically my timing was off when trying to poke, or I was trying to poke at points where I'd be beaten out (thus a lack of match up knowledge). Assuming they're correct, that means that what I was experiencing was me as opposed to the game, which is what I'd prefer since it means I can learn/adapt and improve my play.
Interestingly I played two Kombat League Sets yesterday, one of which had high ping (230-ish), and yet the match felt smooth. In both those Sets I didn't feel any inputs being eaten at all.
So I'll keep at it, and see how things go over the next few weeks.
To clarify, I actually don't care about the wins themselves, and hope I haven't come off that way.If you only care about those wins, things like the lost inputs are going to drive you insane.
Gotcha, that makes sense.To clarify, I actually don't care about the wins themselves, and hope I haven't come off that way.
For me, any competitive or skill based game is about learning, improving, and pushing yourself. It's about being your personal best and overcoming your own limitations, including deceptive mental blocks we create for ourselves.
If you watch my Killer Instinct casuals, you'll see I oft go 0-10 in them, but I'm having a blast playing against better players, testing myself, and making improvements.
I once went 0-40 in StarCraft II, and it was an extremely valuable learning experience.
The difference here, as I've mentioned before, is I often feel like I'm fighting with the game and its design/implementation. I don't feel I'm learning, improving, or even in a position to do so and push myself if the game itself is being the limiting factor. The fun I get from self-improvement and challenge isn't possible in that situation.
That's actually why I abandoned the game competitively a year ago, though I decided to give it another honest go since some things have changed in design.
Hopefully that makes more sense.
I play on a Hitbox, but there are plenty of standard controllers and fightpads that work great on PC.I have played on PC for years and suddenly everything became easier when I plugged in a controller. Suddenly was landing combos easily I never could execute on keyboard. I don't know how some of you do it.
