Anybody got this game yet? Hearing the netcode is not the best but it doesnt suck. Basically hearing reports the netcode is noticeably slower than local but not bad enough for you to drop inputs.

Anybody else confirm this?

Picked this game up and trying to figure it out. Is there a competitive community hub out there? Like a website or discord or something?

Also looking for people to play with on PS4. PSN: Saboteur-6. I'm trash though lol.

Got to play it today at a friend's place. I haven't been able to afford it this month. It's a good game, but feels very slow. A lot more than MK11 in comparison to MKX. There's definitely some weight behind the slashes and the hit-stops gives every attack a huge impact!

Shiki is definitely my favourite, as she feels kinda fast compared to a lot of the other characters, and she has some great moves!

Was kinda disappointed with the DLC characters, but ah well. Hopefully there will be another batch with characters I want.

This game looks so sick but I'm worried about the netcode. Rollback has spoiled me and I'm not entirely cofident Samsho will have a bustling offline scene to make up for it. I might just take the plunge and buy it anyway since it seems great.

Huge input delay online and not so good connection with yellow bar. I hope it's not the case. However it seems better than Kof.
So i finally touched the game and I must say....its fun as fuck! Played online and honestly, my experience has been RIGHTEOUS so far! The connection is not really bad like people been saying, but then again im smart enough to set the correct filters like SAME REGION. It helps alot ;)

Only done Casual lobbies. At first, its confusing on how to navigate and know when its your turn. Basically its first come first serve. Even after you win your match, you have to be fast enough to claim your spot for another match. Kinda like musical chairs with your icon on who can get to the middle the fastest for a match. that part is kinda lame BUT the spectator mode is actually really cool!

If you navigate to the bottom slots before the match starts, you can actually CHEER or BOO during the match, and its funny as fuck! Theres other actions you can perform too while watching. That makes the match really funny. So when I see a match super laggy, I boo the fuck outta match into a remix like im a DJ lol.

To be honest, if the connection of your opponent is garbage, the match will be super bad. There was a time i was watching 2 sets and both of them timed out back into the lobby. So yeah....the online can get very bad. But good connections run very good. I didnt even feel any input lag at all like I expected to. I say this game honestly is a must buy. I feel the online will get better. The core mechanics is great once you get the hang of it, and anybody can play. I will actually stream today my first time on Ranked if anybody would like to see in case if you're curious on buying this game. Plus im funny as shit, so you WILL be entertained ;)

The game is really really fun and i think it's a easy to learn hard to master scenario. It's really a throwback to those snk games, so mutch fun. It's sooo different and unique that it will have a space between the most popular fighting games. I have played mb 1 or 2 matches online, for now i can't judge the input delay seems like DBZ but with good connection it works. And i agree with you, online will get better, at least on ps4 (xbox are saying that is really really bad). For sure the pc port will come later.
IPPOOOON!!

The cast is pretty cool. I still need to try everybody out but my favs Gen'an and Sieger have not made the DLC cut sadly. Hopefully they can be included in Season 2.

This is me playing some online Casual match from yesterday's stream for anybody curious on how it plays online. It plays fucking AWESOME!

Bois, if you'll excuse me. I'll leave it here. Galford main. You'll know what I did.


I was trying to avoid Tam Tam's long poking normals, so I had to keep my distance, and try to zone him with OKI setup. And here's what I did. Check the HP and the timer.

YOOOOO! Thats nasty! That kinda reminds me of the Genjuro setup with his bouncing projectile. But I think you can actually backdash from Poppy to avoid that mixup.

Welp. My Earthquake had a nice lil winning streak in Ranked mode. I LOOOOVE this game!

Yep, you can avoid that Replica Poppy setup if you dash anywhere, but given the time for him to wake up, I had already it enabled, and he would have to eat the Plasma Blade (lightning projectile) right on his face. As Galford you can buffer dash this setup to time your attack with Poppy. This is what I did at the end.

So looking at CEO Top 8, I see that setup is actually fake. You can actually block Poppy low guarding. So I guess its really not a mixup ?Question mark?

It is. All Poppy attacks are mid. They have no choice than to block and guess. This setup leads to 35/35/35.

If someone blocks, you can do 66K (shown in the comeback video), 66HS, and just 6623C. 6623x is a command grab and can be done after Poppy's blocked attack and happen the moment the opponent recovers from the recoil.

This, also, disables them from ever jumping like froggos and from ever doing some specials.

Only Replica Poppy (214C) can be buffer dashed to time everything down. The rest of her attacks are too fast and cannot be buffer dashed.

OOOOOO I see. So the Poppy part is not the overhead mixup, its Galford. So he can Asuna drop, overhead, low medium into Super, etc.
