Tips against zoners (online)
« on: September 24, 2012, 07:12:55 AM »
Definitely Im very frustrated by these kind of people only plays Cat and Mouse, waiting you attack for doing a counterattack and run away, even if they have less bar life, online help a lot these "strategy" than, is harder to do in offline or any KOF in GGPO, Supercade or Arclive.

How do you play against these people??? online KOF XIII is very bad programmed and lot of people abuse of this, I wont play in this way too because is not funny for me.

The general rule of thumb is to slowly reduce the space between the characters and turn the fight into a mid range one. However depending on the lag you are dealing with depends on how much of a pain you are going to have dealing with it. With KOF XIII it's magnified cause of the high combo system can be used to punish any mistake or unsafe poke. It's a major reason why KOF XIII's online is so unpopular compared to other games out there.
Say it with me now: "Variable input lag BAAAAAAD!!!"

Depends on if your characters have Supers or EX moves that go through fireball zoning. Always keep that in mind. Typically what I do is play footsies and block and punish. Sucks when you have them cornered and they mash AB roll and you can't punish it because there's tons of dudes who think they're playing Street Fighter 4.

Best solution is find someone offline to play.
