Title: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: Kane317 on November 22, 2011, 12:38:15 PM
Combining the all four of the official SNKP XIII console change logs (1 (http://dreamcancel.com/2011/10/13/kofxiiichangelist/), 2 (http://dreamcancel.com/2011/10/20/latest-kofxiii-blog-post-translated-by-the-professor/), 3 (http://dreamcancel.com/2011/10/26/kofxiii-blog-updated/), and 4 (http://dreamcancel.com/2011/11/02/last-but-certainly-not-least/#more-2158/)) and the unconfirmed reports from various loke tests can still be found here (http://dreamcancel.com/forum/index.php?topic=1260.msg26496#msg26496):

* = shown in video

System
-Neomax only uses 2 power meters during HD mode (3 meters when not in HD)
- The Hitstun on normal jump attacks have been reduced. (Meaning it’s harder to do combos)
- Special attacks in the air have generally been adjusted to come out faster, so combos from canceling normal moves in the air that could be done in the arcade version can still be done.
- DM damage can be scaled down to a maximum of 40% in combos now (as opposed to 50% before). However, scaling for NEOMAX DMs is unchanged, making them a better choice for ending HD combos. Moves that were unaffected by damage scaling in the arcade version continue to do 100% of their damage in the console version.
- (shown in video) You now get more meter when you are hit by or block an opponent’s attacks, making it easier to escape from a rushdown situation using a guard cancel attack or something similar. It may be better to go for simple HD combos and to keep to combos that do fewer hits. (NOTE: This is something that Dune pointed out in one of the interview videos (http://www.elive.pro/en/watch/RuXc8O97sIhc) that Kane317 did recently).
*Backstep goes into air status in 1 frame. It can now be used in reversal situations to aid in providing options for escaping wake up attacks.
-Guard gauge replenish and rate: Gauge regain after blocking an attack occurs earlier than in the arcade, but the rate of regain is slower than in the arcade.

Hwa Jai
- All frames on Drink super have been changed (apparently, its recovery is faster)
* Ground CD has changed. Moves forward and has invincibility to low attacks
* Fierce Dragon Tail has faster recovery; can be connected to a normal move after it hits
* Weak Dragon Backbreaker is now a 1F throw instead of a leaping throw
- Weak Dragon Tail comes out faster and connects from a fierce
- EX Air Dragon Kick now hits 3 times like its ground version and does 154 damage.
- EX Dragon Tail chips less guard meter

Producer Yamamoto says: Hwa has a lot of changes, like for example, his Weak Backbreaker is a 1F hit now. The recovery on his drink is different so it might be usable in a combo.

Benimaru
- Flying Drill has faster recovery, normal hit can connect afterwards
* EX Raijinken is a single hit attack. On a hit, the opponent will be stuck in the air afterwards for a limited time. They can be attacked with another move, or even get pushed by running to the edge of the screen.
* EX Air Raijinken lasts for a longer time. The timing in between the hits are longer than the arcade version. It now sort of works as a special that can be “placed” on the screen.
* EX Collider hits less times. That means less scaling for the combo to come afterwards.
* Neomax comes out faster, MAX cancel’s timing is different. Invincibility runs out before the hit detection comes out.
- Fierce/EX Super Lightning Kick does more damage. On a full hit, the fierce version’s damage has been raised from 70>100, EX from 135>192.
- Collider has faster recovery on whiff, can rarely be punished if blocked from a fierce punch.
- EX Iaigeri > Handou Sandangeki does less damage, down from 263 to 219

Producer Yamamoto says: We’ve balanced him so that even the attacks that weren’t being used in the arcades would be of use. The EX Collider and EX Raijinken should especially come to more use since the opponent can be hit afterwards. The EX air Raijinken should be fun to place around for an attack string. His Neomax has no invincibility but it comes out a lot faster, so it might be fun to think of ways in using it.

Clark
* His Stepping (Forward+BD) is faster
* Weak SAB has full-body autoguard but comes out slower than before
- EX SAB>Flying Elbow can be MAX canceled
- EX Gatling Attack’s invincibility runs out when its hit detection comes out. Projectile invincibility doesn’t, even after hit detection comes out.
- If Fierce or EX Gateling gets blocked, the Afterattack throw won’t come out any more
* Vulcan Punch can be canceled with another move on startup. This allows for some new combos like close Fierce punch (2nd hit)>VulcanPunch>SAB

Producer Yamamoto says: He’s a throw character so we’ve buffed his throws. With moves like his Weak SAB, his front step, and being able to do a super cancel from a 1-frame throw, he should be able to fight like a real thrower.

Mai
- Kaschousen comes out faster, also has quicker recovery
* Ukibane (down + B in air) has different trajectory than Arcade, recovery time has been changed
* Musasabi(from ground) can be canceled to Floating attack
* WK>FK is a chain combo. Can be used to connect into HD mode, and also gives Mai more damage on pokes
* EX air Shinobibachi added in game. Invincible until hit detection comes out.
- Crouching FP has more cancelable frames
- Weak Ryuenbu has more vertical hitbox
* Neomax comes out faster and freezes time when it reaches the edge of screen

Producer Yamamoto says: We’ve balanced her as a female ninja by giving her attacks that can make her fight more tricky from the air. Using Ukibane to trick the opponent and doing an attack string, or hit confirming from her crouching fierce punch have become effective tactics. Her Neomax has also been buffed.

Leona
* Voltec Launcher chips less guard meter
- Strike Arch (directon move) comes out faster
* Fierce V-Slasher has different angle; weak travels short, fierce goes far. EX version is the same as the arcade.
- Ground Saber has longer recovery when blocked. About even when fierce version gets blocked.
- Moon Slasher has less hitback when blocked. All of them (weak, fierce, EX) are easier to get punished than the arcade.
- EX X-Caliber comes out faster. Still can’t be comboed from a normal or direction attack.

Producer Yamamoto says: Moves such as the Ground Saber and Moon Slasher are easier to get punished so be careful. We’ve balanced her so that she can do things such as attack strings with her EX X-Calibur, or break into the opponent with her Strike Arch. Her Fierce V slasher has been buffed, and she’s a character that’s good in various occasions such as air-to-air combat or against projectiles.

Takuma
- Jump CD comes out faster
- Stun value on attacks has been lowered
* EX Kyokugen Koou comes out faster and has quicker recovery. Still can’t be comboed from a normal or direction attack.
- Fierce Ryuuko Ranbu comes out faster. It’s still slower than the weak version, but it has invincibility until after the hit detection comes out.
- Weak Hienshippukyaku’s damage reduced from 70 to 50.

Producer Yamamoto says:
He has less stun values than the arcade, but he’s still easier to dizzy the opponent than other characters. Also, it’s not written above but damages on his other specials have also been raised, and he’s a character that can do high damage. He’s been buffed in a lot of places like his air CD and invincible Fierce Ryuuko Ranbu, so please try using him.

Mature
* Ebony Tears comes out faster. Can hit opponent afterwards
* Weak Metal Massacre is a one hit attack
* EX Deathrow correctly puts crouching opponent into hitback state on a hit unlike arcade version. If the opponent is crouching during 1-4 hits, a fierce Metal Massacre can still combo with a drivecancel.
- EX Despair doesn’t move Mature behind the opponent even if they’re crouching

Producer Yamamoto says:
Ebony Tears is a lot easier to use now. Weak Metal Massacre has been changed to a single hit and does less scaling, so it might be useful for fast paced matches.

Shen
* Gekiken Fakeout has faster recovery. It’ll fail if the kick button is pressed too soon.
Gekiken maxed out will chip half the opponent’s guard meter
* Danken(throw) comes out slower. Neither weak nor fierce has invincibility. However, it can be Drivecanceled.
* Danken(reflect) builds up meter on a success. No drive meter buildup.
* EX Fukkogeki>Kouryuugeki has slower recovery when blocked. Completely punishable

Producer Yamamoto says: We’ve did a lot of adjustments to his Danken. The throw version is no longer 1F, but it can be drive canceled for additional damage. Gekiken’s feint has quicker recovery so it can be used to lengthen attack strings.

Elisabeth
- Etincelle (qcf+P) builds up less meter
- Ex Reverie-Geler (qcb+P) has a longer recovery time on a success. Because of that, normal moves can’t be used to make an additional hit. The recovery time can be canceled with a special.
- An Ex version of her Reverie-Souhaiter (qcb+K) and Reverie-Prier (qcf+K) have been added in the game. It’s invincible while in movement and cancelable with a special. What’s more, the special will automatically come out as an Ex version without the cost of a meter. However, supers are an exception and will not turn into an Ex.
* Grand Rafale’s (qcf,hcb+P) damage has been dropped from 200 to 150.
- Noble-Blanche (qcf*2+P) has longer invincibility.
- Ex Noble-Blanche’s hitbox has been changed so that it’s easier to get in all the multiple hits. With this change, it lands full hit in the corner.
* Grand Rafale has more Max cancelable frames.

Producer Yamamoto says:
With the new Ex version of Reverie-souhaiter and Reverie-prier, she has more options for attacks. It can even be used as a sort of running throw with Mistral (hcb~f+P), so please try things out. Grand Rafale’s damage has been reduced to 150, but it can be Max canceled even after the first hit now. Also, Noble-Blanche can be Max canceled as well, so it can be used in various situations such as the finishing touch on combos.

Terry
* Crouching A > Crouching C is a chain combo. Can be canceled.
* Normal Buster Wolf’s (qcf x2+P) dashing speed is now identical to the EX version. But the Invincibility is the same as before.
- Far D’s recovery time has been reduced.
- Standing CD’s hit detection lasts a bit longer.
* Trinity Geyser’s (qcb~hcf+P) hitbox has been changed so that it actually hits 3 times.

Producer Yamamoto says:
We’ve mainly buffed up his normals, and he can do solid combos with the addition of chains. Also, His Trinity Geyser’s hitbox has been changed, and he can also hit the opponent afterwards in the corner.

Goro
- Crouching C’s recovery time has been reduced.
- Kirikabugaeshi’s (qcf+C) recovery time on a whiff has been reduced. Doesn’t cause a knockback when blocked.
* EX Chou Ukemi (qcb+BD) can be canceled with a special or a super. Meaning that Goro can go straight into a throw from his invincible roll.
* Kirikabugaeshi (hcf+C) and Kumotsukaminage (hcf+A) can be drive canceled.
* A super cancel version of Jigoku-Gokurakuotoshi (hcb*2+ P) has been added to the game.
* EX Chou Oosotogari’s (dp+BD) recovery time on a whiff has been reduced.

Producer Yamamoto says:
As a judo fighter, we’ve strengthened his grab attacks. You need to super cancel, but he can combo his Jigoku-Gokurakuotoshi from all sorts of grab attacks. He can even do HD combos with just grab attacks, so please try them out.

Joe
* Ex Screw Upper (qcf x2+P) will stay in position when it hits. With this change, Joe can’t be punished afterwards when he hits the opponent with it in the corner.
* Sliding can be canceled with his Bakuretsuken (rapid P). But not with any other specials.
* Hit detection will remain on the opponent after his sliding hits. Again, it can’t be canceled with anything but his Bakuretsuken, but he can go into HD mode from the slide.
* Slash Kick (hcf K) can be drive canceled.
- EX Tiger Kick (Ex dp+K) comes out faster. Has strong invincibility in the front.
- Screw Straight (qcf x2+K) comes out faster. It has no invincibility and it has the same shot limit as projectiles. (Probably means that you can’t do it while there’s another projectile on the screen.)

Producer Yamamoto says:
He can actually juggle other attacks aside from his Bakuretsuken after his slide so please try them from going into HD mode from his slide and whatnot. Also, his EX Screw Upper has been changed so you can use it in the corner without worrying. He does things a bit differently on a Max Cancel too.

Ryo
- Ryo travels more forward when doing his Ko’ouken.
* Ryo’s parries– the Joudannuke (f+B) and Gedannuke (df+B) are faster (shorter overall frames). Gedannuke in particular is very fast and it can even be used for strings. (by canceling normals)
* Fierce Zanretsuken (f~b~f+C) recovers faster on a hit. It can be comboed to a weak Kohken (qcf A) in the corner.
* Standalone f +A Hyouchuuwari (meaning, not from a cancel) comes out faster.
- Weak Koho’s (dp+P) rising time/hit detection time has been reduced. But the move itself is faster, so it can be used for more various occasions.
* Weak Koho can be drive canceled and allows for juggling.
- Haou Shoukouken (f~hcf+P) comes out faster. It can be comboed from a normal fierce, or even be used as an anti-projectile.

Producer Yamamoto says:
We’ve mainly buffed up his defense, and it brings justice to his nickname “The invincible dragon”. Ryo’s unique moves, the Joudannuke and Gedannuke, have been dramatically changed. His Gedannuke is especially fast, and aside from using it for defense, it can also be used to reduce his recovery on attacks. His Weak Koho’s motion is also faster than before, and it can be used in HD combos.

Andy Bogard
* Normal/high jump D has better hitbox for use in crossups.
* Close C hits twice. The first hit has no knockback so his Hirate Uchi (forward + A) will combo without whiffing.
* B>D is a chain combo. Can be canceled.
* Chou Reppadan’s (qcb~hcf+K) damage has been increased from 162 to 198.
- EX Kuhadan’s invincibility (Ex hcf K) has been taken out.
* Chou Shin Soku Zan’eiken (qcb~hcf+AC) NeoMax comes out faster.

Producer Yamamoto says:
We’ve focused on buffing him up around his cancelable chains, two hit C, and crossups. In particular, you no longer have to worry about his Hirate Uchi whiffing from close C. His Neomax is very fast so please check it out.

Athena
* Phoenix Bomb (from Cancel: f.B) has a different trajectory from arcade version and hits a crouching opponent as a combo from a normal fierce.
* Weak Phoenix Arrow’s (air qcb K) recovery time has been reduced, but it also causes a shorter Hitstun on the opponent.
* EX Psycho Teleport (Ex qcf K) can be canceled with a special or super. The Arcade version only allowed drive canceling at the second half of the move, but it no longer has that limit and it’s also a normal cancel now (doesn’t cost drive meter).
- Standing CD comes out faster.
* Shining Crystal Bit (hcb x2+P) doesn’t move back on execution.

Producer Yamamoto says:
Weak Phoenix Arrow has been balanced so that it can’t be punished with normal moves on a block. Since there’s less worries about it being punished, it should be effective to use it together with her buffed up Phoenix bomb, There’s other changes that Athena users should be happy about, like her standing CD and her Shining Crystal Bit.

Iori
* Geshiki Kui (df + C) has a larger hitbox than before. Easier to attack opponent from his command throw.
* Fierce Shogetsu (qcb+P) moves more forward. It combos in most situations after close C> Yumebiki(forward + A A).
* Yaotome (including EX) can’t be saferolled after it hits.
* EX Shogetsu’s invinciblity has been taken out. However, he’s still invincible on his legs.
- Fierce Akegarasu (qcb+K) has shorter recovery when blocked. Can’t be punished with normal moves.

Producer Yamamoto says:
With Fierce Shogetsu’s longer reach and Fierce Akegarasu’s shorter recovery, it’s easier to do strings and combos. His Yaotome can’t be saferolled so attacking on wakeups may become important. With his EX Akegarasu’s projectile invincibility and EX Yaotome’s long invincibility, we’ve designed him to be playable in a different style from Flame Iori. Enjoy this Claw Iori that’s a bit different from the arcade version.

Chin
- (shown in video) Chin can do a close C from his d,d+K stance
- (shown in video) The weak version of his counter now has the attack come out faster than before and can connect into his rolling attack (HCF+K). As a result of this the counterattack almost never whiffs anymore, and there are very few situations in which he can’t follow up.
- (shown in video) He has less lag after his normal throw (both when in his stances as well as normally) and he can actually do followups in the corner.
- Chin’s defense no longer decreases when he has drink stocks
- The active time of his counters has been decreased. The normal version now has the active duration of the arcade’s EX version, and the EX version’s is shorter still.
- His EX counter does less damage, reduced from 237 to 199.

Yamamoto – We added some interesting buffs to gameplay using d,d+K. Although parry time on hk+LK {Ex qcb+BD} has been reduced, the overall frames are shorter making it difficult to get punished. Drinking is easier to use compared to the arcade now that there is no defense penalty. Please have fun with the now trickier Chin.

Ash
- (shown in video) All versions of Genie stay on the screen longer.
- (shown in video) Sans-culotte (ABCD) has had its damage scaling adjusted. It scales more overall.
- Floreal (forward) (b+B) has faster startup and can be comboed from light attacks.
- B version of Nivose (d_u+K) has had its invincibility increased. The invincibility ends as soon as the hitbox appears.
- EX Genie now knocks away while retaining its juggling properties
- (shown in video) Germinal now takes no gauge
- (shown in video) Thermidor’s startup is faster
- (shown in video) The version of EX Genie done using both kicks tracks the opponent.

Yamamoto – Genie remains on the screen for a longer time. It may be interesting to use Genie as a wall of defense as Ventose can now be used while Genie is present. Although Sans Culotte scales more frequently, please try using Germinal as that no longer requires stocks itself.

Robert
- (shown in video) stand CD has faster startup
- You can’t roll recover after being hit by his NEOMAX
- (shown in video) LK Hien Shippuu Kyaku {charge db~f+B} has faster startup, such that it can be comboed from light attacks.
- (shown in video) his f+A floats the opponent upwards if done by itself
- (shown in video) EX Genei Kyaku has less lag afterwards. In the corner you can follow up afterwards without using a drive stock.
- EX Ryuuko Ranbu has more lag after being blocked.
- (shown in video) EX Ryuuko Ranbu has had the damage for each of its hits adjusted. The entire move does the same damage, but its damage in combos has been buffed. The finishing hit now does 100 damage by itself.
- Haoh Shoukou Ken has faster startup and will combo from strong attacks.

Yamamoto – There’s no invincibility on Robert’s f+LP {f.A}, but when trading with a jump attack, it’s still possible to juggle afterwards. It’s a one command move, so good to keep in mind as an anti-air option. Not only can weak hien-shippukyaku combo from weak attacks, Ryugekiken is useful against opponents who roll forward.

Vice
- (shown in video) Strong version of Mayhem has less lag. If you hit with the edge of it you can do a strong attack as a followup.
- (shown in video) Added a new chain combo D -> D. Only cancellable in HD mode.
- jump CD is faster.
- (shown in video) EX Mayhem has faster startup.
- (shown in video) Strong version of Decide can be comboed into the Strong version of Mayhem.
- EX Decide has less lag and is easier to followup with normal attacks.
- (shown in video) Splash (including the followup version) can be super cancelled into Overkill AFTER it hits.
- (shown in video) Overkill can be MAX Cancelled.
- Overkill’s command has been made easier. If the last input is in any downward direction it will register.
- Damage adjustments:
* Her f+A (when cancelled) does 45 damage (down from 70)
* Her Overkill does 200 damage (down from 220)
* Her EX Mayhem does 120 damage (down from 160)

Yamamoto – She’s received a number of damage nerfs, but in exchange she has a lot more combo opportunities making the nerfs not so noticeable. Her air game has especially improved with her jump CD, EX Decide can be used afterwards to follow up.

Raiden
- (shown in video) Weak Poison Breath has less lag. When it hits you can followup with his command throw
- Adjustments to Super Drop Kick (lol)
* Charge times have been increased.
* Invincibility removed
* Guard crush ability has been reduced
* Can no longer be connected after a guard cancel attack
* Knocks the opponent away.
- Jump D’s hitbox has been strengthened to hit downwards. It should whiff less often on short opponents
- (shown in video) Giant Bomb (feint) has less recovery
- EX Raiden Bomb’s forward travel distance has been reduced.
- (shown in video) Raiden Bomber now has complete invincibility.

Yamamoto – Although Super Dropkick has been weakened, shorter recovery on Giant Bomb Feint allows him to be played more trickily. With the improvement to his jump HK {j.D}, he has reliable attacks from the air leading to greater attack possibilities. Worthy of special mention, complete invincibility on Raiden Bomber means no more awkward looking trades.

Ralf
- (shown in video)Strong Burning Hammer has less lag. You can combo it into his C Gatling Attack without needing to cancel.
- (shown in video) During Vulcan Punch (all versions) Ralf can move forward.
- (shown in video) EX Burning Hammer has faster startup and can be comboed from strong attacks.
- (shown in video) Both versions of Galactica Phantom can be charged.
- crouch D has less lag.

Yamamoto – Ralph=power is the simple equation we used here. The centerpiece being his chargeable Galactica Phantom. Damage increases as charge levels go up, release it earlier to improve damage with a super cancel. It’s nostalgic that he can move again during his Vulcan Punch.

King
- (shown in video) Jump D stays out longer
- (shown in video) close C has faster startup
- (shown in video) D Venom Strike (air) has a smaller recoil
- far D has less lag
- (shown in video) Slide can be cancelled without being cancelled into

Yamamoto – We focused on her normals mainly. Although the number of changes are few, it will change gameplay significantly as normals are used most often. Her slide is a great low move and since her close HP {s.C} isn’t affected by scaling easily, please us it often as a combo starter.

Kyo (a new color was shown on the video)
- (shown in video) 88 Shiki (df+D) moves forward more. As a result, stand C, df+D, QCF+K now does the full four hits.
- Kototsuki You (HCB+K) has more lag on block
- (shown in video) B version of 75 Shiki Kai (QCF+K) can now be followed up with other attacks. On the ground you can only follow up with an uppercut, but on a mid-air hit you can do more interesting things.
- (shown in video) Added an EX version for his mid-air Orochinagi. It does 3 hits and 300 damage. Unlike the ground version it has no invincibility but is very fast, so you can use it in combos or in air-to-air battles.
- far D has less lag.

Yamamoto – The air Orochinagi which he learned in KOF Sky Stage (laughs) and now the EX version on top of that has made him a master of the move. It’s now possible to do high damage combos off of a hit confirm with his df.HK>fb+HK {df.D > qcf+D}combo. Please try him out now that he has so many more attack options.

Kensou
*Air EX qcb.P starts up faster
*s.B>C is now a target combo. Follow ups possible after it hits.
*His punch super is now a 1 frame throw
*When air qcb.P hits, it can be canceled with a special or greater
*His fb’s recovery time is improved

Yamamoto:
Aside from being a good way to disrupt guard, his punch super can be used effectively to catch opponents who roll past his fb. His fb game has improved and can be used as a central strategy now that the recovery is better. His air qcb.P can be cancelled with any special and the new s.B>C target combo can be linked by following with c.B or s.D. I recommend using these changes aggressively along with his fb whilst minding distances.

Yuri
*The distance travelled on her dp as well as the angle of descent has been adjusted
*Her air throw coming off of dp.K has special follow up properties
(special follow up properties –ie- versus normal situations where an opponents in an air status that cannot be followed up on with subsequent attacks)
-s.B is faster
*j.A can be cancelled with her dive kick
-Movement limits on Yuri’s dive kick have been relaxed
*Her hcb.B is now a 1 frame cmd throw
-The invincibility after attack frames on EX hcb.K has been shortened
-Recovery on haoh-shokoken improved

Yamamoto:
Depending on which buttons get pressed on hcb.K, a 1 frame throw, a running throw, an invincible attack, the properties of the move change dramatically so it will be necessary to use the variations according to the situation. This will be a versatile weapon in her arsenal so please give the move a try in depth. The real spectacle here is her air throw from dp.K which is now a hit-anything move. Try racking up on damage in various situations!

Maxima
-df.C has better recovery
*No recoil after air vapor canon
*Guard points on normal are now cancellable by specials
*Hit box on the follow up to EX Maxima Press improved. Can now hit from counter CD.
-No bounce back when EX Maxima Press is guarded. He’s now more vulnerable to punishes.

Yamamoto:
df.C can be used effectively as an early (okiwaza) anti-air as the recovery has improved. Also counter df.C and counter j.CD can be followed by EX Maxima Press for extra damage, possible to counter-confirm. Pressuring the opponent by earning precise follow-up damage is the ideal way to play Maxima.

Duo Lon
*Hit stun on EX f.A is adjusted. It is possible to combo with a strong attack or qcb.A after EX f.A.
*EX rekka can be cancelled with a special or greater
*fb frames have been adjusted. It is now easier to include the weak version in attacks strings and combos as it is faster.
*f.B can be cancelled by super or greater
-Damage adjusted on NM from 400 to 480

Yamamoto:
f.B, aside from one shot cancels, the following is also possible: f.A>qcb.B>f.B>super ,so a f.A intitiated hit confirm combo. His fb is now easier to leave on the screen so coordinate attacks with it on the screen.

Kim
*Recovery on EX Hishoukyaku improved. Follow-ups possible.
*ff.A has been improved to hit crouching opponents who are in hit stun.
-Recovery on hangetsuzan lengthened
*Air hangetsuzan hits crouching opponents who are in hit stun. However, upwards hitbox has been reduced.
*EX hangetsuzan has better recovery when blocked
-Properties of fbx2.K have changed. Both versions below have extended recovery on a whiff
Weak ver: Invincible, blows back opponent horizontally
Strong ver: No invincibility, launches straight up
-Weak Hienzan has less invincible frames. Also note well that invincibility is upper body only.
*EX Air phoenix kick added. There are a few frames of invincibility on the initial attack frames.

Yamamoto:
Hangetsuzan isn’t safe on guard so be careful. On the other hand is ff.A can hit crouching opponents in hit stun and EX hangetsuzan can be followed by ff.A in the middle of the screen so regardless of the opponent’s status or distance there will always be combo options available to Kim. So a little bit of a change, let’s use various moves to rush the opponent down without giving them a break!

K’
*EX Ein trigger > 2nd shoot properties have been changed. The projectile hits twice and gradually increases in speed.
-Hit box and attack frames have been altered on j.B and j.D
*Air minute spike anywhere juggles
*Recovery improved on minute spike
-Recovery lengthened on Ein trigger – includes 2nd shoot/2nd shell
-Recovery lengthened for narrow spike when blocked
-Weak crow bites has less invincibility. Note that it is only upper body invincible.
-Minute spike properties changed (includes air). Move initiates at a consistent speed regardless of distance to the opponent.
*EX chain drive has special hit properties.

Yamamoto:
Although there are several nerfs, it is possible to score extra damage using air minute spike and the special hit properties on chain drive which was not possible in the arcade. You’ll be able to make up for the nerfs by jumping on chances to aggressively score additional damage. Worthy of special mention – EX 2nd shoot has been changed. It was often used to zone, but can now be used to gain the initiative from long distance.

Kula
*s.B adjusted. Compared to the arcade, Kula now moves forward giving the move greater range.
-Recovery on df.B improved
-EX Ray Spin no longer invincible
*EX Ray Spin Sit recovery improved
-EX Diamond Edge is faster
*Freeze execution adjusted. Faster and follow-up hitbox improved.
-EX Counter shell has a stronger hitbox

Yamamoto:
Both supers expending 2 meters have become more powerful. Both make Kula invincible and are good for interrupting opponents or as anti-airs. Her use of meter has increased, so she has become a character that will test meter management skills. It may be fun using the wire damage on counter hit on her EX counter shell.

Good for famitsu note. I can confirm that the online is good with people live in my country but for other it depend on the network quality of m'y openent. And this morning, I meet somebody witch use Ex Iori on PS3. I don't know how he get him...

Do you know if with a canadian version of the game I'll have to buy the DLC on The us store or I'll to obligatory buy on the canadian store? I know some game are different between us and candian... Thx you.

One last thing, after few days with the game, I can say It's an amazing fighting game, for me the best on PS3/360 and with it, the rebirth of SnK games!!! Get hype guys!!! The king is back on his throne :)

About the IGN review, read the bolded out part: "The game has seen some improvements to the online component, but it still leaves something to be desired. In our online play session, we experienced some input lag during matches. While this wasn't as gamebreaking an issue as it was in KOF XII, it was enough to be an annoyance in online play. The problem wasn't constant, but it happened enough for us to take note."

Which means that the netcode allows people to play at low delays. The rest, are connection issues of each player, which are the player's fault. These guys don't know how to review netcodes.

Yeah, I would love to see someone do a test like this.

You could use a 60fps video camera, and firstly play in training mode or whatever offline, and hit, say, a st.A. After that you do it online, and when you've captured video of both, you could edit the video so that you have a side-by-side comparison between the two, timed by a button press, so that you can see the difference.

Of course, this wouldn't be a perfect test, but it would work.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't IGN stationed in Texas? If I remember correctly, Aram from Atlus said they'd tested the netcode out with various gaming publications, most of which from California. However, he did mention they'd also played with one reviewer in Texas.

So, in a way, it might make sense for IGN's review of the netcode to be harsher than others'.

Anyway, reviews are nice, but I don't care about any of them. KOF XIII and I were made for each other. And mine is now out for delivery as well.  :)

Love how that statement matches your avatar almost perfectly.

So, in a way, it might make sense for IGN's review of the netcode to be harsher than others'.

The netcode argument I got; it was most everything else that felt off. And someone who'd been searching for lots of KOFXIII reviews found it just as disturbing as I did that at least 8 or 9 sites with XIII reviews just redirected them to IGNs.

Just a comment, if the game works for 5 seconds smoothly and with very little delay, it means IT IS like that, under normal conditions, and that's how the netcode is, if there's intermitent lag, it's YOUR problem.

Man, since I have the game I did a few couple of matchs, with guys from EU, HK, and US (i'm in EU)!
What I can say to you, is that (I repeat myself):
Its extremely rare I can play a match with an US guy in SSF4 with red connection (1 bar)
But with 13, I was able to do most of matchs, thing I never can do in SF...
And  2 bars ist playable
3 bars its not so bad, almost no lag
4 bars its very well, no lag

IMO, I think, that 13's netcode, its maybe better than that SF or equal quality!

BTW, @BIOBOOSTER, have you the game? I would like to test that, between EU and JP!  :)

played quite a few matches and I have to say aside from the 2 bar connection it plays great. Was able to hit bnb's consistently and overall had a great time. But when I played 2 bar connection I was getting hit with random reversal on wake up. Even when I bait it i get hit but like I said 3 and up are good. Avoid 2 bars connection and you will be good.

Big ups for the netcode review - really encouraged by most of what I hear XD

Basically, I added onto Running Wild's comment by saying:

Quote
The 8 button thing... If I'm interpreting your meaning correctly, this is probably in SF terms a fireball followed by a yoga-flame (or hurricane kick followed by reverse yoga-flame) and then a button. Really? you could not pull this off?

Many Street Fighter supers are often fireball x 2 and then a button, that's 7 inputs...

Others who have reviewed the game don't seem to have difficulty with this and I'm afraid to ask what other fighting games you are comparing KOF with (Clay Fighter or Shaq-fu?).

Please consider what you're doing before you write something like this. It's clear that you have not spent much time with the game nor do you seem qualified to rate any fighting game other than maybe Smash Bros.

I would post his here too, but I foolishly refreshed the page as I was loving the comments from all types of folks and wanted to see who would be next to add to the entertainment.

Nice comment btw Running Wild \(^o^)/

Terry's Power Geyser and Trinity Geyser both do not all hit in the corner. It's incredibly annoying when the changes posted by Atlus say they fixed it so all of them hit, but in the corner, that's not true. Whoever can get in touch with Atlus, please tell them this or I'll do it myself in a formal letter.

I got a Verizon FIOS connection but connecting wireless to my 360 as i always do and only found 2 bar matches, which was pretty bad. Playable, but with the game running at maybe 75/80 percent speed? Tried finding others but i'm currently in class. hopefully tonight i'll play with some of the regulars, and I plugged my 360 directly to my router so the connection should be better.

yeah i mean right now all it has to compete with is UMvC3 ( it's MUCH better MvC3 but not as good as MvC2)

and i think AE 2012 ( but after 2-3 years of sf4 i'm sure anyone who didn't get AE will pass) which isn't out yet.

I don't think 3soe counts since it's a dlc game, but that game isn't arcade perfect which kind of ruins its selling point to hardcore fans

KOF 13 sounds like the best bet.

You can blame Capcom for their "comeback" mechanics.  It's how lazy poor players get by in those games.  Because XIII lacks that, they complain.  Capcom loves their lazy casuals.  So now any game that doesn't cater to them is bad.

It just rubs me the wrong way because it comes off as trying to make the game look bad for giving fans what they wanted and staying true to what makes KOF good.

Anyway, back to failing trials in Mission Mode.  I thought I was not going to mess with XIII Iori much but he's satisfactory.

They don't really need to improve a lot, network wise, the game runs great online, it just needs to be "refined" to be better.

If they patch the game, I would love to see the following things changed:

1. Button Config (Doubt this will happen)
2. No "NOW LOADING" icons if you install the game. (Possible and simple?)
3. Add 8 player Lobbies. (Doubt this will also happen, but I hope it does.)
4. HUD Positioning option. (I hope they add this)
5. Voiceover for cutscenes and dialogs. (The STORY mode would had been better with it IMO, even if it's Japanese only. But Doubt it will happen)

P.S. Wishlist FTW! lol

So far it reminds me to BBCS in which sometimes the match is laggy at first because the game is synchronizing, but after a few seconds it runs better. But the bar system in KOFXIII is not that accurate, sometimes 3 bars might be close to be 2 bars than actually 3 bars.

I dont really know what the review is complaining about in regards to "holding your hand". Maybe they simply tried the tutorial and not the missions. The missions seem to show alot of what a character is capable of.  You go through some bnbs and every character has like 3 HD combos.  And then you have Kyo's missions...that character is crazy.

If you see the option for DMZ somewhere in the menu, go there and put your PS3 IP in  the DMZ. That way it will allow any incoming and outgoing connections with no limit to your PS3 only. That is the simplest solution, there is a more complicated one, but never have dealt with your kind of router before. So I can't help that much, unless someone in here has the same router as yours and has forwarded ports with that router.

Maybe a newbish question, but can someone explain how the bar indicators work? I joined a room that was listed as four bars, but then we each had two bars next to our names. The match was pretty laggy, and certainly one of the worst I've played.

Anyone else experienced this?

Anyway, I'd call the netcode decent. It's possible to find fun matches. I'd love if they could kill the input lag during some of those "almost good" matches.

Put about 5 hours into it and loving it.

The online is filled with tons of new players, difficult not to win. 1 bar netwplay sucks, 2 bar is bearable and 3 is solid. Haven't played 4 but it must be real good going by how good 3 bars is.

Having a difficult time adjusting to playing on a pad, I keep wanting to offer a kingdom for a keyboard.

The port job itself is simply excellent, kudos SNK. And the game is pretty much exactly as good as I had imagined it would be (while watching match vids for a year and a half), plays like a dream.

Maybe a newbish question, but can someone explain how the bar indicators work? I joined a room that was listed as four bars, but then we each had two bars next to our names. The match was pretty laggy, and certainly one of the worst I've played.

That the only thing I don't like, when you create a room its just a suggestion and not a restriction. As such, if you or I create a room for 4 bar games only then it doesn't limit it to ppl just to 4 bars that can join the game, anyone can still join. So even though I set up rooms with 3 bars and above I often have ppl with 1 and 2 bars join.

I dunno.. These incompetent reviewers that only look at the bells and whistles and don't give time or thought to the actual games make me sad. You shouldn't review games like this if you are straigth up clueless as to what makes them good in the first place.

Also.. Pixels? In a game praised for its pixel art? By a company praised for its pixel art? There is no research going on at ign is there? No love or even interest? Fantastic.

Quick question: Is it possible to see how many bars you got? or only how many your opponent has? And: Let's say I find a guy with a perfect connection.. is it possible to have more matches with him or as soon as the match finishes you have to re-queue?

Yeah you can see how many bars you and the other guy have.

When a match ends the game goes back to the room with the both of you in it, if you both want to go another match then you hit X to confirm. So if you both confirm then it will go right back in again, otherwise you can exit and play someone else.

Apparently this game doesn't support all USB controllers or converters, only controllers with a playstation home button will work. This is a massive oversight by SNK.

Hopefully someone here can report this to SNK, so they can release a patch to fix it.

Capcom made the same mistake with the PC version of SSIV arcade edition but patched it rather quickly.

 Last night something happened that had me feeling quite good man, i got home around 1:50 in the mourning and i fire up my system and what i saw was a thing of pure beauty, there were 7 of my friends playing the game and the best part is only 4 of those are KOF fans the other 3 got the game because of i told them to get it if they wanted to get a new fighter and they are liking the game so far.

Of the 4 that do play fighters 3 of them are fucking pissed at the way the game is getting reviewed, you see the guys that dont play fighters felt pretty bad because they now think that if you play SF you cannot play KOF because if you go by what the reviewers are saying things like the game is too technical or the learning curve is too steep and this is not for casual players or is too hard for others that are not KOF fans to play the game now the ones that play SF feel that they are being put down too, this is what happened when i got on the mike and listened to what was going on.

So guys did you see the reviews for this game? SFp (street fighter player) i honestly believe that this fucking guys are too busy playing call of duty and just phone in the review i think this game got legs and is pretty good.

Cp (casual player) well personally i think that the reviews can be a bit confusing the way they talked about how this game is to hard for me to learn and that they dont recommended to me because of it is pretty stupid, i have been playing the game for about 3 hours now and is pretty fun, there is a lot of shit that i dont know yet but is only been 3 hours man i know that if a put some time in ill be better at it, the stages are insane.

SFp so what are you saying man that this game is too hard for you or something?

Cp no they said that SF is too simple as if i could not possibly play KOF because is too smart for me but being that im a casual gamer and apparently a dumb fuck i can only play SF, hey wait a minute aren't you into SF and if so do you play it because is so simple?

SFp what watch it man who are you calling simple, SF takes skills too you know.

Cp easy there man i did not call SF simple the reviewers did, i mean i take it they mean SF when they say that KOF is too technical compare to other games, other game being SF yeah? and here i thought that people play that game for other reasons now i know is cuz is for dummies.

Considering XII was patched and improved upon, I'd expect the same to happen here. I don't have any insider info or anything but it seems likely.

They don't really need to improve a lot, network wise, the game runs great online, it just needs to be "refined" to be better.

If they patch the game, I would love to see the following things changed:

1. Button Config (Doubt this will happen)
2. No "NOW LOADING" icons if you install the game. (Possible and simple?)
3. Add 8 player Lobbies. (Doubt this will also happen, but I hope it does.)
4. HUD Positioning option. (I hope they add this)
5. Voiceover for cutscenes and dialogs. (The STORY mode would had been better with it IMO, even if it's Japanese only. But Doubt it will happen)

P.S. Wishlist FTW! lol


Completely agree with just about all except for HUD. I don't really require this because SNKP did something cool with it. First fighter I can think of where the sprites are in front of the HUD instead of behind it which pissed me off in a lot of games...

you can't play online on a modded ps3 as of now and it doesn't look like it in the foreseeable future, even if you download the game right you won't be able to play it 'cause it will require you to update the system.

reviews r important to make casual players curious. by the other side players who r into the fighting games just give a relative eye on them and know by themself how the game is, following it around all the long (sigh) path it made till the release.
if it is important to involve more ppl and players, cause anyone would like a huge followup on his favourite game, and cause it would means more money for the franchise and producers and future new episodes , i dont feel so disappointed about what some reviewers (and probably capcom and shit fighters fans) r saying about the game. i mean since the first time the yellow and blue face of a neogeo fighter came in the arcades i felt like i was playin an elite game,a game for sure not for all and im kinda proud anytime i say ... crapcom ?? nahhhhhh im an snk fan.
honestly im happy if ppl who like to make their character allllllllllllll yellow and do a 34223424 frames invincibility move in the middle of ur string is not interested in the game. just stay there in ur little paradise which doesnt need skills,moving the stick like a crazy in the others strings and where a throw is the most important part of ur game ! i say ... stay away from king of fighters i dont miss u.
anyway im envying u so much fuckers ;) still few days till i ll have the game, oh and im connetceted by cable i think it is a lil better than wireless and could make the online a little better ?

I will not play the game online cause i dont have gold service on the X360,i hope that when i have gold service again i can find someone to play online on XBL even if the netcode sucks i dont care,i will play it like i played KOF 98 UM or 2002 UM before on XBL.

I dont have my KOF XIII yet have to wait a few more days for the  EU release and the shiping from amazon.uk. :(

Where's the bug report section?

I got something Atlus needs to fix:

Terry's Power Geyser and Trinity Geyser both do not all hit in the corner. It's incredibly annoying when the changes posted by Atlus say they fixed it so all of them hit, but in the corner, that's not true. Whoever can get in touch with Atlus, please tell them this or I'll do it myself in a formal letter.

Hey Reiki,
Did anyone get back to you on this?

There may be nothing wrong here. Got a little worried and rechecked the change log.

It says that they made Trinity easier to get 3 hits with. The only other change they note about Trinity is that you can now follow up with moves like Buster Wolf if it hits in the corner. There was no mention of modifying Power Geyser.

I kinda wish they would make both moves always hit. I remember in other KOFs they made max Power Geyser get all 3 hits in the corner...

Don't worry, I bow to your Terry knowledge! m_ _m

Like you say it's almost always the case. I'll do my homework and try to find which version it was (was def one of the KOFs btw) where they allowed all hits. I remember reading a Neo Geo Freak issue where this was highlighted as well... Damn my memory!

Honestly, after playing with you, I feel the opposite.  Saiki has no decent hitconfirms from lights, and no command normal on the ground to make up the difference.  His zoning is honestly average because he only has one true horizontal fireball which means the opponent doesn't have to respect different fireball speeds coming on the ground.

He's got filthy tools and some potential, but I think he'll settle in middle of the pack after all is said and done unless people find some crazy crap with him.

Great to see a proper/balanced review. Glad they had a good online experience. I would, however, argue that being able to have saved matches online would cover the remark 'Lacks replay sharing.'. Overall, I think they give it a very fair revue by guys who know fighters (unlike a certain someone who had to rewrite his review with a higher score for getting bashed to high heck for posting a worthless one) and not just saying so bc I liked the score.

You know what would've made Terry perfect in terms of balance? Crack shoot always an overhead (they could've figured out something fancy for the EX instead like ground-bounce on hit. Yeah t'would be the shizzz) - yeah that, just like in MOTW. Oh well, I will certainly take his low start into RB chain tho ;)

Fair enough, I wouldn't mind a bit more love for Terry though. I still wish he had a few more tools for breaking down guard...

Either way he's not hurting so that's fine. I want a DLC MOTW Terry, but don't think they'll ever do it bc the movesets would be too similar and a ton of sprite-work. On the other hand...going with the theme of fan service...

Power Dunk breaking into Power Charge juggle into BUSTAH WOLF - OKAY!

I would only accept an EX MOTW Terry, if they add ARE YOU OKAY to his Buster Wolf.  If not...I would not be a happy panda.

And I'm not gonna lie, Kensou seems like top 5 at least right now in console.  EASY ass hitconfirms from his lights, great zoning/DP game, his corner pressure is just FILTHY, he can stagger lows into rekkas, he can just come up and normal throw you and combo off of it, he can do hop pressure, AND he has a 1 frame Command Grab DM, along with good FB pressure, and the ability to stagger the gap between his second and third rekka ala Fei Long to catch buttons, and he can get you into the corner rather easily.

Honestly, I can't really think of a flaw in Kensou's game.

Yeah I've heard reports that Kensou is freaking wreckless now. Kane was pretty much confirming the same on chat the other day. Looks like we'll all have to come up with vs Kensou strategies (maybe a vs section on all the wikis would be a cool addon).

I like doing his air qcb+p into qcf+k. It sorta looks like a phoenix arrow.

Kensou is too good in this game! I won an online ranked match using only him.

I really don't understand how they can keep on putting off the last two chr reveals...

They note the Atlus combo vids and say they don't want to lose in that area either and they got so immersed in making their own vid that it didn't make today's deadline...so they will post it next week.

The rest is fluff about cards, wallpapers, and the box that some stores will have as a display gimmick...

Eh, meh, bleh.

Want official reveals pleeeease! <to get official availability dates >_<

Heh, dunno how much blog reading I will do next Thu anyway as that's my date for disc in hand  d(^w^)b

If it weren't for the fact I decided to pick Kensou before the buffs, I might feel bad using him.  Oh well.

I still got Hwa and Saiki to feel better.  Maybe King if I REALLY need the extra zoning.

I picked Kensou too in the arcade.

I like doing his air qcb+p into qcf+k. It sorta looks like a phoenix arrow.

Kensou is too good in this game! I won an online ranked match using only him.

Well OCV's happen with anyone.

A fair review that comes across as smart enough even though it is aimed at a casual crowd.

A not so serious review that was possitive was that of classic game room. It isn't very informative so i'd mainly recommend it if you enjoy cgr, though it does give a casual view on the game that is positive despite any "difficulty" issues.


*Noticed that they wrote atlas instead of atlus at the bottom of the page.. I am indeed bored.

The good old days.. Where you're lives where numbered so to say. I remember the megadrive/genesis often being relatively brutal when it came to continues (Comix Zone anyone?). Combine that with an oldschool coin sucker to teach people to want to not lose. Neo-Genesis, the perfect combination of awesome and awesome to forge a new generation of gamers. It will revolutionize gaming by transcending console generations and become the next prophet of all compatible religions, others will succumb to its might and fade away in awe. Jesus will resurrect just to have a go at Metal Sludge; Hard Corpse 2 and then go back to heaven to preach of earths glory. There will be an end to hunger as we all turn to cannibalistic jelly from lack of exercise and an evolutionary growth spurt so that we can finally fit an optimal number of people in the same room withouth having to worry about leaving console setups unattended.

Anime fans will be tricked to spend some of their cash.

if you dont know how to play chess, you have no right to even think about critisizing the game much less reviewing it. this ist ssbb or mk, there is no room in a true fighter for casuals, so to all those fuck off and die, i mean bye. f true fighters are one of of the few genres thats never been for fucking noobs/ casuals. you can be a noob at first, but you need to understand that you will need to develop skills and put in the time to not be a casual. yes you can be a casual kof player if you already know how to kick ass in most other fighters and play this for casual fun. but if you have no understanding and fundamentals and are a true casual not into fighters, and dont think you'll put in the time needed dont buy the fucking game and complain about shit. true fighting games are not for casuals, in fact the more casual unfriendly they are, the better the game probably will be. casuals better stick to tekken, sc, mk and ssbb.

back on topic, i think kensous only weakness is he needs to come in and do real damage, but his crouching lights lack range like chin. hes sort of like RB2 joe & andy in that aspect, in that he has tools for pretty much any situation and then some.

like i said a 100 times before, terry and mai need more moves. firekibk, air bk and pd for terry would have mde him the sweeetest terry ever. mai needs that 95/98 dp, ;fd ;b ovehead and maybe an air fb and a jumping grab dm ala hwa and mais rbs pp. goro and clarks problems have been resolved the exact way i thought would work as well, those new console dc cancels, it's like snkp was reading my posts again, lol.

I don't know if they've changed his rekkas noticeably but in kof xii, if Kensou did three lights in a row, the first rekka could whiff, if it did hit then the second was guaranteed to whiff due to spacing and most of the time you could only actually use one light before rekkas after a jump in. He's probably gonna be good but from where i'm standing it seems like he is gonna have good punishes, safe but weak strings and then the sligthly worse then average hitconfirms. Then i recall that he can cancel out of his target combo (great buff i believe) and i wonder if his rekkas move forward more than in xii because otherwise they might not work if the distance at the end has become too great.

So, was in training mode with K' today.

Basically, he can't follow up his ein trigger into Second Shell (His launcher kick) unless you do C version Ein Trigger or d.B, qcf+P, f+D or st.C (1hit), qcf+P, f+D. That's not entirely accurate, but let me explain in that if he does C version Ein Trigger, you can't follow up anything either.

He's very meter dependent and he doesn't gain meter as fast as before. Outside of the corner, he only gains close to 40% meter for a regular BnB (or atleast anything you can do without meter. He can't link dp+C as far as I can tell with any combo starters without meter. This is a strange new K'.

There's plenty of other stuff you can do. If you TK his qcb+K so it's in the air, you can anywhere juggle off of a st.A. If you manage it, I'm pretty sure you could carry someone to the corner by doing standing A and that over and over again. That'd be a nice practice.

-The staff are enjoying the reviews and comments from overseas.
-They've seen the Atlus combo videos and wanted to do something even better, but they're overdoing it and it didn't make it on time for this week's update.
-So instead, they're showing off the invitation envelope which'll hold the Flame Iori DLC card, and they're also showing the box (bulkier than real product fake item) and that'll be used by stores for promo.
-They're also mentioning that some XIII related contents are up on PSNStore and the X360Marketplace. In reality, it's only available in the X360Marketplace. 2 Themes, each 240 MSP.

Hopefully SNKP is also seen the reviews on the Netcode too.

Wasn't there a rumor that around the time Japan version releases, a patch/update is planned?  Perhaps related to netcode?

I know KOFXII did receive a netcode patch (it improved it a little, but not in the ways most people wanted.)

Hmmm,  I think it's all GSS's fault for not providing state of the art netcode,

why would SNKP still do business with that company?  THey should have joined forces with Arc Systems Works.

The wiki really needs a nice overhaul. We can't fall behind SRK in terms of providing quality information! But in all seriousness, they did a really good job. We should shoot for something of similar or greater quality, but also something simple everyone can contribute in.

For example, even though their organization is great and has nice pictures for reference, there's not many comprehensive individual character tips. I'm sure we're more than capable of shoring up that portion and it's still relevant!

In the 100+ matches I've played online I've only seen Hwa, Raiden, Chin and Maxima once.  Billy i've never seen used at all.  Everyone's sticking to the shotos I guess.  The lag tactics people use on ranked remind me of the olden days of XII.  I take it the slight input lag some of you are experiencing make long hd combos unfeasible/not worth it?
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: Saitsuofleaves on November 25, 2011, 01:47:33 AM
Really?  I've seen a decent amount of Billy but yeah, the others you mentioned not so much.

As for HD combos, I've seen they're possible even in slight input lag, I have the scars from Takuma blasting one on me earlier (that Takuma was straight scary).  But mostly it's probably not for the best unless you play like King, in which hers you could probably do blindfolded.

Post by: LouisCipher on November 25, 2011, 04:55:13 AM
A few random thoughts:

I might have to edit my signature. I'm finding success with Maxima on 1st. He can play keepaway really well and that's what I use him for; keep them out and build as much meter as possible for Ralf and Clark. Needless to say that my Maxima is total balls for that reason. I know he's a good character in the right hands but I can't make him work. I'm so used to having speed and a safe way of getting in with Alex in 3S, that I can't really adjust to a grappler that lacks these two things. Clark has these assets that make him so fucking beastly. If you can dominate with the other grapplers than I tip my hat because for the life of me I can't get that synergy going. Ralf I like, my big problem is accidentally doing DC'ing Galactic Phantom and consistently doing his charge moves.

When the DLC characters come out I'll probably use Mr. Karate or Iori 98 in 1st or 2nd.

For now I just see my first two characters as sacrifices to Clark (MORE BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!) and if I can take out the opponents 1st character and whittle down the 2nd to about half health, then I know my Clark can win it. I have to get better at comboing and using hops though.

I have only played a handful of online matches, but so far my experience has been decent. Can't say lag has caused me to drop anything so far, but I don't have any really big combos mastered yet anyway. It sucks that people are either playing the game like it's SF or spamming what they think are cheap moves. I fought one guy who picked joe and hwa and did nothing but spam their knee attacks and supers. It was an insanely stupid strategy and I'm glad to say I didn't let him get away with it.

@LouisCipher: I wouldn't give up on Maxima just yet. Sure it's tough to get in with him, but when he works, he really fucking works. Try baiting attacks just outside of your opponents reach and use Maxima's superior reach to punish. Good spacing does wonders for him. Though I admit I rarely get the chance to do actual combos with him.

One of my friends says that his guy has the EX characters and stages, but that it doesn't let you run a standard character and the EX version on the same team. So like....no Takuma/Ryo/Mr. Karate or Kyo/Goro/NESTS Kyo, etc.

Is this true? Can anyone confirm it?

Many people ask me my personal opinion on trial difficulty for games.

If the scale was 1 out 10 in difficulty


MVC3 - 3
SSF4 - 4
3rd Strike - 5
UMVC3 - 5
Blazblue - 9
KOF 13 - 10

I've been experimenting with Billy on first, I like him I just don't know how to get dudes off of me when they're being ubher aggressive. Maxima is just really good at playing defensive and building meter. I keep fucking up and doing HCF+Kick thinking he has the same input for his grab like every other grappler. I really like Ralf, he has good overall options and his CD is gdlk. I gotta' learn those Neomax combos.

also trials are fuck8ng hard, as soon as those hd mode combos start. im fuck8ng up. smoking weed and doing the hd mode trils dont work, way too long to remember. some of them future over 20 moves, dont do these under the influence.

Amazon pissed me off because the info they gave led me to believe that they where gonna be smart and send my copy at the 23rd so i'd probably get it on release but no.. They waited till the 24th.. Though atleast, my package is actually in sweden so i'll have it on monday or tuesday, unless theres some dumbass reason for extra wait. Luckily, as i stated in an earlier post i should still have my game earlier than if i ordered from a swedish site/store, so that's something.

It's good that the trials are hard because i want to feel like i've atleast kind of accomplished something at the end of them.

Well, coming again from MMCafe, Toxico solved the mystery:

Quote
The .lua files are the ones from the scripts (on screen text and nothing else), the one that changes on the movies when you set the language to something else. In other words that much is just their dialogs from story mode.

In order to be planned unused characters they not only need need to be the same type of files that the "characters" are, but they also need to be grouped among them. Considering XIII cycle of development, I wouldn't be surprised if there is no extra planned character left out at all, regardless of we having the Arcade or Console version.

I notice custom soundtracks don't work online (either that or maybe not in ranked?)  because the XMB said it will play the track after I'm done with the current session.   Hmm so much for installing music tracks, not really interested in using the tracks offline.

Half of the 13 one is AST...ironically, when ripping the CD into the XBox, I ran out of space right when I finished the OST.

Still discern if meaties when timed correctly (esp. on jump-in) will be valid.

To note, I have not seen much if any on recent vids - heh, maybe we all got too excited when we got our hands on the game. ...This Thursday for me, got a couple sick days at work remaining. Trying to come up with reasons to not be ill :P

I did this avatar because Jenet is not in the game, and i think she would be a nice Panty. That, and Kula is one of my mains, and making an Stocking alt for her makes some sense.

Yeah, you can definitely see how that's the case considering people still run a majority of tourneys on the PS3, so yeah, people use the 360 because it's that much superior...

Seriously, how about you stop taking random innocuous things I say about a Capcom game and turn it into a rant?  Just makes you look butthurt honestly, no offense.  I understand if you have no respect for them, and honestly, most Japanese developers don't deserve any respect anymore, but talking about them nonstop is only making matters worse.

that people use the ps3 more for tournaments doesn't mean shit, it's because it's usually easier with changing controllers. it's a fact 360 version of the sf4 series is superior to ps3. theres like a 2 frame difference between the 2 versions when it didn't have to be like that. the 360 one is closer to the original arcade. also fuck the developers and publishers, why would you even feel the need to stick up for them is beyond me.

back on 13, completed couple more trials. roberts # 9 is killing me, ive done all his other ones. so far in 9 i either get the dm or NM at the end instead of exdm, and this should normally be easy, lol.

I think I may have encountered another bug. I was in practice mode with Iori (vs. Kyo) and did his DM in the corner, canceled into his NeoMax. I don't remember what hit it was, but the NeoMax seemed to "miss" Kyo. It was as if the move just passed right through him. He was just standing there was Iori recovering.

I wasn't able to recreate it, however.

Are the droppers getting away with not recording a loss, or are they in withdrawal from Capcom installing punishments for dropping?

Knowing Neo Max combos, it depends on your character.  Hell, in Arcade, almost no one used them because finishing with your EX DM was almost always the better choice because it was one meter less, the damage was still similar, and you weren't on the HD bar's time limit to use it.

But like I said, now it depends on your characters.

In your case, you won't need it with Maxima when you have him on point.  With Billy, it wouldn't hurt.

Ralf...uh, no, I don't think so, I've never seen a Ralf actually use it before out of combo videos.

Clark, yeah, I would learn that to put someone down really quick if you're loaded on meter.

yes, otherwise your handicapped vs players that can do it. also it's not just about the NM, it's more about the HD activation and learning those combos. shen for instance can do like 80% damage of a hd combo with 1 super bar added. if youd try to do a similar combo without going into hd mode, you cou use all your dc meter and 5 super bars and stil not get 80% damage. so do you need to know these combos, no. will they help you out tremendously, fuck yeah cause you'll be conserving bars while doing more damage. isn't 1+1=3? in kof, yes. whatever the fuck i meant.

I played 6 hours straight and its fantastic,my fingers are literally burning

In fact the game is not executional heavy like I tought(I tried a bit of classic 98 and that game its scary)

You just have to be very clean with the motions,I mastered some kyo hd combos and Im not that good @execution,in fact I use some tricks (I always go for c.C df+D(2)hcb+k instead of cl.C df+d(1)hcb+k) after hitconfirm into HD,I also tried the vice loop but I can only get the lp mayhem one :/(I dont even know if you can use hp mayhem lol)

oh I dont know how to play kof at all but training mode its still fun as hell atm

I'm going to politely disagree here.  Yes, in the console the NeoMaxs have lower requirements and from producer Yamamoto-san himself, he wanted encourage NeoMaxes being used.  However, it's still up to your playstyle and character.  Remember, most characters don't use NeoMaxes outside of HD combos so if you don't normally do them, you probably won't in the console either.  For what it's worth, I tied 7th at Evo and I never used NeoMax combos.

Sir I respect your point of view, and I will agree to disagree. I do see the need to learn NeoMax combos as a number of characters such as Yuri, Terry and Saiki allow you to follow up after a NeoMax which in cases is better than just going for a normal super or Ex Super ender.

According to the PS Store update, there is a new KOF XIII Theme (Theme 3), i'm guessing the 360 will get it too.
I'm still waiting for someone to rip those awesome arts seen in the theme 1 and 2.

Wait, when people are arguing about "NeoMax" combos, are they really talking about HD combos? Because learning the NeoMax would just be learning one more move wouldn't it?

Well it's a couple fold.

One, most Neomaxes aren't exactly that great outside of HD mode.

Two, while yes, most NeoMax combos involve HD mode, they tend to, depending on the character, change up the combo you would initially have before hand.

Perhaps its somewhat character dependent and personal preferance of meter usage imo. Whether you want to drive cancel or save up for HD/Neomax. Determine how the flow of the match is going...you might have to drive cancel to get the damage when you can, if you dont have full meter.

But you do want to be able to get the most damage out of a hit confirm and whether that combo involves a neomax or not, its in your best interest to learn it. Typically, I dont see alot of point characters doing neomax combos, but I would recommend learning them for your anchor at least, especially if thats your optimum combo.

Yes, it is important to take into consideration a player's preference in meter usage.

I must say, though, that I've seen a lot of people gain meter and not using it at all. They're hoarding it and don't put it to use. I think I'll start calling these people "Scrooges" and building up meter without using it "Scrooging". =P

Just curious if anyone else is experiencing it. Is there an unusual amount of droppers on this game? I thought I was playing SVC again. One guy really befuddled me. He put on his message before the match starts "Don't hold back." Then drops when I have him down 2 characters.

Are the droppers getting away with not recording a loss, or are they in withdrawal from Capcom installing punishments for dropping?

Not really. I only drop when it's really, really laggy. And I usually drop at the character select screen and there's obvious lag.

I do see a shit ton of people playing runaway and spamming projectile. And it's not because of my Clark, they do that against any character I have.

I agree, I think it depends on largely who you use and how. But maybe six months down the road I'm wrong, Clark is low tier and the top tiers are the characters with the best Neomax combos? Who knows. But I think at this stage you can play to your preference. Clark and Billy for example do just as well without Neomax combos.

And what was up with the commentator for the levelup stream saying Ralf is low tier?  ;) I was like 'really? He's bad? Since when?' he's got a good overall zoning game, the explosion is a pretty good AA, he has an EX Punch that autoguards and is free setup for at least 400-500 damage and more if you want to spend more meter, and he has one of the best CD's of the game. I just mentioned this in the Clark thread but his Jumping CD has a HUGE hitbox, and he can cancel it into his Dive. His standing CD could be the absolute best in the game imho. Amazing reach, he's safe and can cancel into punches and he's still safe.

Side note: Anyone know when Mr. Karate and EX Kyo are out? Is it the same date as Flame Iori?

I've been running into players online that get the SF4 Ultra mentality and love to throw out random Neo Maxes.

In one match, first round, I was using Andy vs Kyo, and I threw a EX fireball, didn't realize he had 3 stocks already and I ate a Neo Max lol. Full screen punish too. In that same match though, he got really antsy with Vice and just threw out her NeoMax for no reason, which I was waiting for, and killed her for it. I knew he was gonna get impatient and try to throw it out.

I rarely use Neo Maxes. I'd rather save the meter for EX, I can do just as much damage with a simple BnB without blowing all my meter on 1 move.
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: Saitsuofleaves on November 30, 2011, 08:07:20 AM
Okay, I wouldn't consider the first example you mentioned random.  Free 50% damage for a punish isn't something to scoff at and it makes you respect the NeoMax.  And at least he did his straight raw.  He deserved eating it for Vice though.

The REALLY bad ones are those who activate HD Mode and just sit on it until they can get a random NeoMax for 2 bars.  Those are just shit.

And maybe your team doesn't need the NeoMaxes.  I know for damn sure with the way Trinity Geyser acts, we'll probably never see a competent Terry actually decide to use one outside of styling purposes.

Lmao those Neomax's, I play too old school for XIII. Sometimes I forget neomax exist lol. I'm still trying to get use to the game. But yea you played it right, just be patient.

BTW its weird seeing people appeal to Vice alot online, was never like that back in the 2002 / 98 days. Her HD combos are somewhat simple to get used to though. Even people like Juicebox, and Sabin messing with her. Thats cool she need more love.

However, I got a strong feeling once Flame Iori gets released; online is gonna be flooded with him easily. As well as Nest Kyo. lol they were the stars back in the day because of there viscous rush down capabilities. There's people in the game that got that strong rush down feel but not like them two IMO. I cant wait for them.

Okay, I wouldn't consider the first example you mentioned random.

I'm more referring to what he did with Vice. Based on what I observed of him when he was Kyo, when he had the meter, he'd be real trigger happy with a Neo Max, and while I paid for it with Andy, lesson learned, I knew he would try to pull it again.

Although with the delay factored in, it could of been random for all I know lol. He could of input that NeoMax before I let my fireball loose. You never know when online play is involved. After that though, I knew he'd try to do it again with Vice, and in several more matches after he'd cut a Neo Max loose if he had the chance, expecting me to do something leaving me vulnerable.

I was mostly scratching my head at how he got 3 bars with Kyo so damn quickly in the first round lol.

But yeah, maybe some Neo Maxes have their uses for punishing shit or as some kind of reversal.

Some NeoMAXes are actually very good as raw moves, despite their expense. Mai's NeoMAX is a good example IMO; it's very fast, punishes full screen, and is completely invincible once she's off the wall. If Mai is running away with meter for NeoMAX and the opponent chucks a full-screen fireball, you can easily react and teach them a very ugly lesson. It'll also beat a lot of stuff that might be used for stalling as the timer winds down, such as Athena Shining Crystal Bit (but not EX Shining Crystal Bit).

Nope Xbox live. I guess it wouldn't bother me so much if people weren't asking for a beatdown then dropping cause of it.

I actually feel people don't use raw NeoMax enough. KOF is a pretty offense oriented game and you can really surprise people with raw NMs. I've landed Iori's NM a whole bunch since people are not watching my meter and it just catches them during sloppy play.

I was over at a friends place playing all day this tuesday and while the level of play was crap i atleast realized that Joes EX Screw upper and NeoMax are great for punishing some specific stuff, like kensous run/leap/kick special. Nothing wrong with taking away 30/45% health in an instant imo. Though i would prefer to do something flashier, i must say that in my second day playing i just wasn't there yet. I did manage to do a couple of HD combos but it is hard to hitconfirm in this game atm since i have to mind the timing and so on so i rarely go for anything but safe bets. It should be good soon though, it is coming together for me.

I understand if people choose to go for simple damage, doing actual combos does require actual work. Training mode is so rewarding here though, i'm getting the hang of Joes tigerkick/golden heel wallcarry stuff and it just feels so sweet to keep the opponent floating.

Ehh.. I really meant that the level of play was crap :P He just liked spamming that move because he didn't get punished enough. I don't think the third guy who was playing even figured out a punish for it.. He did get a little scared when fighting me later on though and it was obvious that he was keeping track of my meters. I think light slash kick is a solid punish aswell though so that's just my bad for not using it enough really. Growing pains you know.. Gotta play dumb before you play smart.

Post by: LouisCipher on December 01, 2011, 07:35:54 AM
Got at least one good set in. Decent player (I feel like an asshole forgetting his name right now) he had a Runaway Elizabreast, very annoying character. Can't wait for that patch.

Random thoughts:

My Ralf is garbage. Offline I don't have too many problems, but online I accidentally get moves out all the time. A simple standing CD into Punch easily becomes a Galactic Phantom. Messed around with his corner combos off of an EX punch and it turns out I can get about 350-400 damage on average by either comboing straight into Bareback super, or doing Explosion, C charge punch, Cancel into another Explosion and possibly into another charge punch. Roughly the same damage is done either way. Still not a bad character, just has a bad wakeup game and mediocre AA game.

Maxima I think is going to be low tier. He's just too slow, and can't punish as well as 90% of the cast. His guard points are his greatest gimmick, but his grabs are terrible (probably the worst in the game), and he has a hard time getting in. This is how you beat Maxima; pretend you're fighting a worse version of Hugo or Zangief... like Hakan. His guard points are his one and only useful feature. *It was funny, the guy I was playing on PSN did Maxima's Super to AA me, I short hop A with Clark, Maxima absorbed the hit, but it was so slow that I was able to block the super and punish him.

Billy is a fucking black pimp. Just an amazingly good character overall. His only weakness being a bad AA game. His mixups are scary. He has an easy combo into Neo Max Super (and Neo Max is a really good punish too) and I believe his EX up kicks are safe on block or at least appear so online ;) .

Messed around with Mature, why do all of her supers do almost no damage? Other than that she's a good character.

I don't get Claw Iori. He's easy, perhaps easier to use than Flame Iori. But if you zone him or know your characters best jump ins there's not much he can do. He just doesn't have the pressure he once had. There's no real reason to use him over Flame Iori unless of course Claw Iori does more damage or has easier Neo Max combos, both of which I doubt. His command grab is garbage too. There's just no real reason to use him right now compared to most of the cast that has good ways of getting in. And less of a reason once Flame Iori is out next week.

Clark is still a black pimp :D . His B Sab is just so godly, not just because of autoguard, but because of the tick possibilities it has. He's the only grappler (aside from maybe Goro and his Kara Throw) who has great tick throws. My only problem is that his EX charge punch trades with certain things. I guess they had to give him some kind of weakness but I hate predicting that joe schmoe is going to do something, and they do random Tatsu as I do the EX and it trades...

Maxima I think is going to be low tier.

I think Maxima is the shit, he was pretty strong in the arcade, and still is. He may be slow, but his guard points give him the necessary tools to slowly make his way close enough to his opponent, and EX Aerial Vapor Cannon is amazing. I usually punish what I can with s.C/s.D into hcb+B, and off that you can get more damage with a super.

I might end up being King/Shen/Maxima. I'm wondering though if I should use King as my 2nd character, because I can actually pull off her HD combo, Shen's I can't quite get out yet. I love having Maxima as my anchor because of the damage he can do off a simple 3 hit combo.

I've been playing with Ralf more too, his standing CD is really good... plus it's kara-cancelable. I've been using s.CD kara into qcb+P to approach, works pretty good.

Kim is another character I may use more, I've always been a fan of Kim in the Fatal Fury games, but rarely played him in KOF, save for like in KOF95 lol. Hangetsuzan being punishable hurts him a bit, and his Max Cancel off his Hou'ou Kyaku into Neo Max doesn't bring out much damage compared to other characters. If only he could cancel the Hou'ou Kyaku finisher into Neo Max... everytime I tried I could only do it after the first few several hits.

Also playing with Andy more, I love his s.B, s.D chain combo, it's awesome.

This game is SVC level strict on controls. SVC took me a year to fully master the controls, even simple inputs because of how strict it is. All the commands work properly, but it allows NO sloppiness in execution. Give it time, especially with online lag it will take a lot of practice to get used to this system.

Maxima I think is going to be low tier.

I think Maxima is the shit, he was pretty strong in the arcade, and still is. He may be slow, but his guard points give him the necessary tools to slowly make his way close enough to his opponent, and EX Aerial Vapor Cannon is amazing. I usually punish what I can with s.C/s.D into hcb+B, and off that you can get more damage with a super.

I might end up being King/Shen/Maxima. I'm wondering though if I should use King as my 2nd character, because I can actually pull off her HD combo, Shen's I can't quite get out yet. I love having Maxima as my anchor because of the damage he can do off a simple 3 hit combo.

I've been playing with Ralf more too, his standing CD is really good... plus it's kara-cancelable. I've been using s.CD kara into qcb+P to approach, works pretty good.

Kim is another character I may use more, I've always been a fan of Kim in the Fatal Fury games, but rarely played him in KOF, save for like in KOF95 lol. Hangetsuzan being punishable hurts him a bit, and his Max Cancel off his Hou'ou Kyaku into Neo Max doesn't bring out much damage compared to other characters. If only he could cancel the Hou'ou Kyaku finisher into Neo Max... everytime I tried I could only do it after the first few several hits.

Also playing with Andy more, I love his s.B, s.D chain combo, it's awesome.

 I agree. Maxima is not low tier and shouldn't be under estimated. People say he's easy, but getting in with him is a  challenge. That takes time and practice with him. Doesn't happen quick. Also, he has 1 command grab, but that 1 command grab will allow you to super cancel on any version of it. No matter what happens, you put them in the corner. Nobody's command grab does all that, especially a regular one (Except Daimon, but Daimon is just straight evil).

Give him a chance.

Nah. I disagree.  I've played SVC and XIII is better than that but KOF has always been against sloppy inputs so you have to be spot on.  I remember playing 00 after playing XI.  00 was strict.  I had to practice basic qcf motions.  Something I was able to do for more than 10 years.  XIII just has some madness with characters that demand you use shortcuts to get what you want.  Mix in some late cancels and links and it's a pain.

One question. Maybe you have talked about this already... Is there any way to refuse a match when you get challenged in arcade or practice? I will like to refuse fight against 1 bar people, but I do know how (i press O button, or select, or start, or triangle, but nothing works and match starts)..

thanks in advance :)

If you play Arcade or practice in Ranked, there's no way to refuse. But you're finished with the person after 1 round.

If you pick these options under Player, you can refuse the players, but they stick around after the fight.

So you get more control in player matches.

Played quite a few matches and so far the character variety my opponents have picked have been great, I wouldn't say any particular character is being overused so far.

how easy do most of you find this kula combo;

Remember the "long"cut for DPs, and it shouldn't be the worst of the bunch.

 ;dn ;b, ;dn ;b, ;b,   ;fd ;df ;dn ;db ;bk ;fd ;c,  ;df ;dn ;db ;bk ;c

holy fucking shit, the k dp into fb cancel. rex i love u man, no homo. and here i was thinking just what kind of godly execution you must have for the shit, thanx a lot man.

so finally after getting some help, has anybody found a way to make 2 crouching light into 2 half circle backs easier execution wise?

also rex and anybody with knowledge and/or execution wanna help me out with the terry 9 or 10 trial in the terry thread. the one that rex posted long ago and mr kof performed, the one where you change sides with the burning knuckle and finish with hard cracshoot into busta wolf into NM. thanx in advance. anybody seriously considering playing terry should know this combo, the first part is his hardest non corner non super bar hd combo in the game, BUT ITS HARD, lol.

Most used online (mid to high level play) is Ash, Shen Woo, K' least used Elizabeth, Chin, Maxima. This is just what I see and if you count the people who are just starting out, then the people used are quite different.

youve got to be kidding, right?

this has to be probably the easiest kof has ever been, easier than x1 even and that was baby mode.

in 2002 i struggled a bit with certain combos, but in 13 im breezing through them like butter, the balance is perfect between decent inupt reading and your execution, everthing is so damn easy, and this is on pad, te only thing thats hard is kyos dp into orochinagi, and thhats because im probably getting a bit to old to be doing fast inputs like that

theres no way you should be compairing this to svc, doing a ryu max mode or demitri max mode is next to impossible compaired to 13

Regarding the controls, I just don't see it.

On a scale of 1 to 10. 1 representing the worst controls imaginable for a fighter like say Ballz 3D. And 10 would be 3rd Strike. I would give KOF 13 a 9. Only because it has some weird anti-tick throw system that can make it difficult if you're a grappler and has to be timed just right and I wish Neomax had it's own dedicated button because sometimes you accidentally get it out.

Comparatively; KOF98 would get maybe a 5 and 2002 would get a 6 from me.

Great, as if Kula weren't giving me enough nightmares, now I'm afraid of Clarks too.  I have to pray to get through an entire team with Kensou since Clark is usually an anchor or I get worked.

Also, off-topic, Youtube changed the layout again...hate when they don't warn you.

And two other things.  How the hell is 98 and 02 easier for you than XIII?

Also, am I the only one who thought 3S wasn't that hard execution wise unless you were using like Yun or Urien?

It's a problem when you take a BS 500 DMG for the stupidest NM throwout ever.  Plus since the online isn't that great, it makes something as simple as running up a bit useless since you can't block in time.

I'm curious the people out there that are wondering about the 4 bar connection, have any of you tried player match quick match? I encounter 4 bars in there but I run into a problem that it will not show 4 when you enter the match. However it plays very well even though it will show a lower connection.

This also happens when I host a room. I will have someone come in that supposedly is on a 2 bar connection and it plays at least like a 3 if not 4 bar. I also think this the problem I heard people are entering a room asking for a 4 bar connection yet someone come in with a 2 bar instead.

I have played a 4 bar that stayed 4 when you enter the room (he was 20 miles away at most but more then likely using the same internet provider). So I've somewhat got an idea of what a 4 bar feels like.

i think i had 2, 4' bar matches in the beginning, after that i put it on 3 and up but like most of you i kept getting 2 bar people that i had to kick. i played eripio69 from dc hes from cypres 2 bar shit connection, unplayabe.

ggs to you dc folk btw. i had some decent 3 bar matches against kael from poland, fluke whos from sweden and eddr whos from the same country as me. at 3 bars the game is playable but not great, thing is all these 3 bar connections should have been 4 bars (they would be in ssf4). holland is 100 miles from east to west and almost 200 miles from north to south. eddr should have been 4 bars instead of 3. people from the uk are only 2, such bs. the netcode would haveen good if all my neighbouring counties had 4 bars and countries further away like spain and italy 3. neighbours are 3 and spain etc are 2. in sf4 they where normally 3 to 4 if their internet didn't suck. impossible momentarily with 13's netcode, shame.

It had noticable lag moments but i think the majority of the matches were fine though.

When i got the game yesterday i immediately went online and tested my connection.

-2 bars- my first online match and it was laggy as hell

-3 bars against Musolini and that was a decent connection, not perfect though

-4 bars was smooth as hell and have played a couple of people without any sort of lag whatsoever.


I think i spent more time online than in the actual game itself lol, i need to train though and level up.

Those trials are a bitch btw, damn!

another quick note, when going into hd mode at 3 bar connections the game stops for a sec and lags even more, making the easiest hd combos a bitch. this probably worse with 1 and 2 bars ( i feel for u peeps). how is it with 4 bars?
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: Saitsuofleaves on December 02, 2011, 05:20:47 PM
It's not so much a problem with 3 bars as the netcode itself.  When this game lag spikes (happens to all games online, not a big deal) the game doesn't resynchronize for the lost time in the round, so you play under extreme input delay until the round is over.

another quick note, when going into hd mode at 3 bar connections the game stops for a sec and lags even more, making the easiest hd combos a bitch. this probably worse with 1 and 2 bars ( i feel for u peeps). how is it with 4 bars?

Can't remember that happening to me.

Guessing those numbers must be respectable if it outsold Tekken Hybrid (which came out the same day iirc).

More random thoughts:

King: I don't like her. Her projectiles are good but I feel like I have to spam them all the time with her, and for whatever reason I can't get her slide out consistently, and I think she has the slowest sweep in the game. Not saying she's bad, but she has a tough time getting in and consequentially getting them off of her. Just my two cents.

Ryo and Robert: If I mained Shoto's I'd use them for sure. But I don't because I find them boring and horribly overused by scrubs ;) . I'd say either him or Robert are the best. Robert has every tool available to him; a command grab (EX too), a Dive, projectile super, etc. Ryo is different, he's like Clark in that he has a tool specific to him that no other character has and radically changes how to play against him. Clark's B Sab not only autoguards but gives him amazingly good tick throw options that no other character has. Just the same with Ryo's parries, they're damn good and make him scary as shit if the other guy is good at it.

Shen: Very easy neomax combos. Good overall character, I just have a hard time getting in with him.

Kim: I really like him. Just wish his QCB+kick was safe or perhaps easier to combo afterwards. Really good pressure with him. Very easy to pick up. Another thing I wish he had were his rekka's from 2002 and XI.

Netcode varies wildly. I played 3 guys. One Green, pretty good, he just loved doing Mai's Neomax. The other two were Yellow and one was 'okay' the other was okay for the first match and then lagged hardcore for the rest of the matches. I honestly think some of these guys with Yellow connections fully know that it's laggy and just want to troll by running away and spamming projectile and random super. I even had one guy empty jump over me, he's right next to me, so I go to grab, and he mashes out crLKx3 with Kula and it hits... Need that patch.

Did anyone encounter 'lost colour' bug?

Let me go into details, I was playing to unlock K' until I reach the 40 play count usage, upon doing that, I exit game properly and it auto-saves. I did a quick check on the count and it was 40, went into customization and saw all colors unlock. Ok, since I was done I off the console and went out. To my horror, when I went into customization again, not all the colors were there.  :( I went to check the character playcount and its at 27!!

Other players who encounterd this as well: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/632923-the-king-of-fighters-xiii/61135872 (http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/632923-the-king-of-fighters-xiii/61135872)

Is there anyway to inform Atlus or SNK about this?

Just got back from NEC. My god played The Answer, Reynald and one more person who I forgot to ask his name. They made me look silly. Insanely nice those 3. Willing to help a player out to better improve. Appreciate the games I played there. Made 9th in KOF 13 which is far better then expected. Got sent to losers by Justin Wong who played extremely solid and obviously has better defense then I do (was really hard to get in against him). Over all playing and definitively seeing high level play (was sitting right behind the players during top 4) made me realize how much I want to improve in the game.

@Running Wild- Well I live in Albany which is the exact equivalent to a rock lol and believe me I would go to Rochester but I have no vehicle nor do I know how to get there by bus. If anything if you got a consistant scene going on I would go once I purchase a car. Thanks for the heads up  ;)

But it was a great event, 53 entrants which was a solid turnout.  And I got to live the dream and commentate top 4 of KOF, twas amazing.

Met a ton of people, everyone seemed really cool, and almost everyone wants to play this game, except for Wolfkrone who's too busy dominating AE.

Even if they wanted to release things earlier than originally planned they can't do so freely because they need to have changes greenlit by Sony and Microsoft. The latter (as proven early on in MK9s life) are very slow in their testing and greenlighting of patches etc. Though then again i don't really believe snkp has any need to hurry at this point so they are probably just gonna go with whatever pace they planned.

I really recommend getting the japanese ps2 version if you can cause it has features that are lacking from the 360 version which include color edit, the option of 3D stages, and OG 2002. But if you don't care for those features then the 360 version is just fine. 02UM is definitely my favorite KOF after XIII.

EX KYO!!! Wut!?!?!?!??! New character added!

http://www.atlus.com/kofxiii/ (http://www.atlus.com/kofxiii/)

While on the subject of rekka characters, EX Kyo will definitely be purchased by yours truly, with all of his glorious rekka chains.

Hell getting him and Mr. Karate.
Dat Mushiki - CRAZILY blasts the opponent into the corner XD
NeoMax - That's the shizz, get to properly see the move on the Atlus site. Didn't know it had that kind of range and now I see it's more like a steroided buster wolf. Animation is eye sex (previously thought it was only flames engulfing the screen from close range) - VERY okay!

Problem: who the hell can I replace on my main team which I love?? Maddening! T_T
Maybe my team should have always rhymed. Joe/Beni/Ryo > Joe/Kyo/Ryo  O_o

I played alot of EX Iori's today online. He'll be the star for awhile; not just because he's a new DLC, but his move list is also very versatile.

EX Kyo looking great, I miss that R.E.D. kick.

Post by: LouisCipher on December 07, 2011, 07:12:58 AM
EX Iori is a black pimp. I mention it in the character thread but his EX SRK goes right through projectiles.  That alone makes him a top tier all around bad ass.

Played a few dudes online. GG's to Steamwolf, sucks that it lagged, we need a patch. If you ever play a guy who's screen name is KimPKaphwan (something like that) be sure to friend him. Damn good player. I got fucking wrecked. It was slightly laggy, particularly when it came to trying to do a move or EX move on wakeup, but that was some good shit.   I think he's Mexican which explains everything ;) .

Probably.  Even if it goes by the same formula as EX Kyo, we wouldn't be getting Mr. Karate until early January.

The game has sold out in japan, sadly, SNKP didn't expected to sale more than 25k units, so lots of people actually weren't able to buy the game


At least SNKP met with their expectations

But I had to ask, how long it takes to a company to re-stock a game?

I doubt it. You can tell that they've been planning these three for a long time. When you go to character customization, or character data, all the names appear on a grid. There's just enough room for three extra names, but no more.

That said, it would be a good sign if sales of these characters were so high that SNK decided to make EX King, EX Robert, EX Andy, EX Leona, etc. etc. But I'm reasonably certain they're not planning to.

true i did notice that small part of the grid in charcter customization but i was also wondering what if SNK realeased KoF XIII UM just like how capcom released ssf4 how well would that sit with you guys?

Well, that EX-Kyo, seems good, but never liked him a lot... but his specials with guard points are pretty attractive...

Um, well a UM probably wouldn't be for another couple of years.  Besides, we usually save UM's for Dream Matches don't we?

I mean, if we do a UM, they can't just add EX characters and call it a day without some annoyance, they'd probably have to do new sprites for new characters which would take a while.

Considering the game has been selling really well it's possible now. If it was going to do just 'okay' sales which I think everyone was being realistic about, probably no extra DLC characters.

A little annoyed that EX Iori was on the disc and I paid $4.99 for a 6kb unlock... but hey, SNKP/Atlus did a damn good job, EX Iori is a black pimp, amazing character. I will still be buying Mr. Karate even though there's no doubt he's on the disc but if they fix netcode I'll buy EX Kyo just as a show of thanks.

As far as more DLC characters, my best guess is either Adelheid or Rock Howard... and yes I will bring it up again that SNKP could use Kyo's body as a base to get Rock in there. I wouldn't mind, and I can finally make a Rock Howard combo video using the song Crawling by Linkin' Park.

*Orochinagi has an EX, but mushiki doesn't
*Which kyo is stronger? Like Iori/EX Iori, the playstyles are vastly different, but we balanced it so that neither version is stronger than the other.

It's just a sticker..and yes 150 is a lot of moneys - that's why i think it's reasonable/i am entitled to bitch and moan until they fix that netcode without anyone telling me to "shut the fuck up".i have patience but i do not like to throw away money unless i get what i paid for.If they don't i will be selling them if i can find someone to buy them at a reasonable price.If anyone is interested PM me with offers in about 1-2 months - if someone will buy them both i will add XII too as a bonus (soundtrack and pretty envelope included LOL)

I'm not sure if anyone else knows, but button config IS on the character select screen, just not obvious. Just press the cancel button on character select screen in versus mode, there is an option to change button config. Also I'm not trying online again until the patch at least. Really bad connections even with a green bar.

So KOF XIII did not win the VGAs and I'm pretty sure I know why.

Viacom has stocks in the Mortal Kombat franchise. Not only that, they own MTV. This is easily the most obscure conjob I've ever seen, but hey, it's like playing the "Kevin Bacon" game.

Anyway, bummed about that. We seem to have come in second though.

2) Plus MK9 was really popular, in a local survey here, the game won by big difference

Marvel, could have won if weren't for the whole umvc 3 fiasco, street fighter is fading in obscurity, and KOF XIII is an incredible niche game, mk9 winning is not weird for me in any sense

Had a bad night online. I thought online was 'okay' before but for whatever reason half the time I can't get my combos out. It's totally random. I'm not mashing. I have the timing down and they don't come out half the time. Then short hops become regular jumps and you eat yet another AA.

Then it got weird, I played a guy who had a nice Shen, but he used Flame Iori, and he knocked me down in the corner, I hold back to block his short hop C, and I eat his combo. This happened 3 times in a row. I know I'm blocking correctly, and nothing. Free combo for them.

Doesn't help that almost everyone online is very, very content to pick shoto, runaway, spam projectile, and do random AA's... Thank god for Clark.

Can't find my mojo for a solid 2nd character either. I do well with Clark and Billy but not so much Flame Iori. I feel like I get in, do Rekka if it lands, SRK or crC to AA them, maybe go for a command grab on their wakeup. Maybe I kill their character, I runaway and use projectile to build one more bar for Clark and I get killed. Tried out Kyo and Ryo, didn't like 'em. Here's hoping for Mr. Karate.

I know how you feel.  I played a lot of matches vs my friend and it bumped my player level up pretty high.  If I wait 30 mins for someone to join, chances are they leave immediately anyway. 

Me and you should play together, we connected decently didn't we?  I won't use Kula, I promise.

I wait an hour, I go into training mode because I feel like working out maybe Claw Iori or Shen (because Terry HD combos are insanely finicky so idk if I want to keep him, still waiting on EX Kyo next week...by the way, weren't we supposed to get a blog about him today or something?), and I go in there forever, someone finally joins and by the time I make it back to the lobby, they're gone.

It was half decent between us.  Better than the crap I usually get anyway.  And it's fine if you use Kula, I hate the bitch but with the frequency she's used, I have to learn how to fight her anyway.

Question: Only Neo Max/Hyperdrive combo I'm good with is Clark's. And I know that's because it's piss easy to do but bare with me here.

Let's say you have your 2nd character out there, Clark is your anchor. You're sitting on 2-3 bars and full Drive Cancel meter. Do you go into Neo Max to kill the 1st or 2nd character on you're opponents team, but in the process leave practically no meter and no Drive Cancel for Clark? Or do you keep it basic and build meter and possibly lose your 2nd character but you know that Clark's going to come in 3-4 bars and full drive cancel? Keep in mind that Clark is my main.

Billy and Saiki are still unlocked but all the unlocked colors have been lost.

My 2nd is usually Flame Iori or Billy. Sometimes I run Billy first but because I'm still figuring out Iori I run him 2nd when I see the other guy has figured out my Iori and wants to rush down Billy.

Something similar happened to me several times - The other side's stats are reset in the middle of a long set.  When that happens, their names are blanked out and the win loss stats within the room don't add up.  However, my stats have never been reset.  I did suspect they increased my loss numbers by about 10 games once.  It probably happened during the glitch where the game attributed my opponent's losses to me by error.

Anyways, I actually don't mind having my stats reset.  A lot of people come into my room, saw my level, and leave immediately.  :)

Oh well, at least we got news on the PATCH, but it seems they will only fix the randomness of the bars and give us the option to not accept a Ranked match if we see the bars are low. I wonder if they will also improve the netcode.

Totally, feel your pain man. I have had that thought each and every time I do it - sounds like something that should be fairly easy to implement via a patch. Heh, have gotten fast at it too.
Another while-we're-at-it, but would be nice if we got the button config along the lines of how everyone wanted it. Push button to set button, but have the current functionality available as well where you can move left or right if you want to assign buttons to no action, or set button combos, etc.

^ It would be awesome to have the "press button" configuration, but if they didn't add it after hearing all the fans request. I doubt they would add that after a patch, maybe in the next game. But as everybody here, I wish it was implemented already.

Meanwhile we are at this wishlisting patch conversation... I wish they allow us to enter the "button config" option in characters select by pressing "START". For what I notice, START doesn't do anything in the character select and as for now, you can only go to the "Button config" by pressing O/B before picking the 3rd character. You can press O/B even if you selected the first or the 2nd character and still access it, but I find START a better button to use.

BTW, why the heck I can't custom color FOXY and DIANA? =(

i think the way button config works now is fine, press button config is a lil easier but the difference is minimal and not even worth complaining bout.

the horseshit they call netcode, hud options etc need bigger improvements and way more urgently.

I have a feeling they're actually tweaking the netcode.  In all honesty, if the patch did just what they said it did, would it not be a lot quicker and a lot easier to just put that in rather then have an unknown date for something that should feasibly be a quick patch?

I have a hunch that they're actually doing some tweaking and fixing on the netcdoe and they aren't confident enough to tell us about it.  But then again, it's SNK so who really knows.  The one guy who's making this patch is probably doing it in his spare time between making athenas legs chubbier, making Yuri have bigger meat buns and deleting e-mail requests for Yamazaki as DLC.

No, not really. Part of the patch hurdles also involves passing certification for the patch to release to the public. Big companies seem to be able to "rush" a patch through these processes for Sony and Microsoft, but smaller companies can pass the patches (or even DLC) to the companies, and they companies can then decide if they're able to release it soon or not. Not to mention they have to coordinate releases with different company heads in multiple areas of the world.

I'd really like to see the code improve too, lets get those 2's feeling like 3s, 3s like 4s, and 4s better than ever! Hopefully, some true optimization with "in the wild" conditions can enable them to do some amazing things with it.

I left my impressions in his character thread, HERE. (http://dreamcancel.com/forum/index.php?topic=1657.msg40521) Personally, I think XIII Kyo is more free-flowing, and NESTS Kyo has been given so many checks and balances, that he's slightly more restricted. HOWEVER, his own personal gameplay feels rather fresh for this game, and people willing to use his EX's and Unique attack strings will probably find a very powerful, yet well-balanced, character.

Well, after spending like an hour just trying to look at every possible combo EX Kyo can have, it seems, at least resource wise, he's a point character (which we probably already knew, but meh).

Past his BnB 1 Drive, 1 Meter combo in the corner, he doesn't really seem to push it much further damage wise when you burn more resources unless you're going for an HD combo.  He definitely thrives early it seems.

Post by: Mr Bakaboy on December 21, 2011, 12:11:15 PM
^ After playing you I picked him up a bit more to take another look at him and I still agree with you. You can make him sort of work against lower level players, but fight someone who has a little knowledge of the game and he is really hard to work with. His specials just aren't reliable enough to use them in riskier situations. You have to play safe way too much with him.
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: Diavle on December 21, 2011, 12:58:21 PM
I focused on Ryo because he was the less used of the two and Robert seemed a little too good. Socal guys said the same thing in that one levelup stream, going on and on about how he's top tier. Though its funny how none of them bothered with him during SCR. Same with Hwa Jai, they said that he's top but he didn't do much worth mentioning in SCR. So yeah, I still maintain that, so far, this is one of the best balanced fighting games to date.

Now that I feel more comfy with Ryo I'll focus on Robert but, honestly, based on the few matches I've played with him I can't see myself not doing well with him. He's like a swiss knife of sorts, pretty much has everything. Fireball, DP, command throw, air special, invincible and super fast neomax (that can also be done in the air), very safe db f+B special, etc. Add to this easy hit confirms via f+B and f+A, which also work starting from lows, and you have a very solid character.

Maybe you guys are playing him way too much like in the previous years? Dunno. Most probably just have to adjust to his XIII style instead of relying on past knowledge, which is the same with a lot of the cast due to all the refreshing that took place.
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: Mr Bakaboy on December 21, 2011, 01:39:49 PM
I'm not saying he's bad. Best way to describe him is like Kula. She has good stuff and if you break her down and really start to use the combo system she can be a beast, however just using the specials in a footsies game will get you killed if you are not careful. Her shoryuken hits aren't very reliable (meaning unless you have the shoryuken mastered on how it hits you are going to whiff on your opponent a lot). Her slide is very punishable, her freeze breath is easy to get inside of, and her psudo hurricane kick to iceball isn't nearly what it used to be. However if you figure her out all together she is a beast.

Robert is a lot of the same. The shoryuken isn't nearly as accurate as it used to be, the hurricane kick (Hien shenpuken I know the names but I talk SF to simplify) is not safe at all, the fireball is average at best on properties, the dive kick is not nearly as safe as in past game also is a bit slower giving the opponent more time to adjust to it, and Ryoko Ranbu can be knocked out of pretty simply taking away one of the bigger advantages he had in the past games. That all being said put all his stuff together and I'm sure you can do serious damage w/ him cause he has many different attacks to work from, but on a simple footsies level, he's not very safe to use. I'll probably pick him up and work harder on him eventually, but there are a lot more characters to master that are more my style that I can work my way into the combo system while still feeling comfortable playing footsies with.


The balance is ridiculously good on this game cause I've watched the different streams of the game and the players seem to change their mind on who they want to use tournament by tournament. I mean do you remember a SF game where the players were picking totally different people from one tournament to the next?

dont really rely on much knowledge from old games much generally because i forget it in like 10 minutes but like baka said robert has all the makings of a solid character but a lot of his shit is kinda risky as of right now im gonna try to focus on find a replacement for him sure ill still use him time to time but just not right now which is kinda dissapoint because in almost every other kof i played he was a mainstay in my team well heres to hoping we get 96 rob as a ex

I mean do you remember a SF game where the players were picking totally different people from one tournament to the next?

There was actually quite a bit of character variation after the 2012 AE patch but yeah, they tend to stick more with one character in that game.

As for Robert, not having overly safe moves isn't much of an issue. Kyo is the same way, pretty much all his moves are punishable and yet he is a complete beast. Robert's ground db f+D is very unsafe but the B version seems pretty damn safe from the looks of it. unless they have a really fast move (like an EX super).

His footsie game is strong actually, you can use the same cancelling normals into fireballs tactic as Kensou. I used it with him in 2k2 and seems to work just as well here, highly annoying. Should be even better since he can easily capitalize of lows in XIII, like cr.Bx3, db f+B and cr.B, cr.A, f+B, f+A, finisher. Such strings also give him forever to hit confirm into HD. Then there is also that wall bounce and Iori style crossup. This guy has a ton of tools, if most of his moves were safe then he would probably be broken. A safe on block fireball, pretty safe db f+B and super safe neomax are enough for me.


Not sure what you mean about his dp but it has been pretty good at stuffing stuff, there is always the EX one as well. Can't remember his regular Ranbu being too hot outside of combos, Takuma's was the one that was always good (which makes sense since its one of the very few defensive options he has).

So yeah, maybe he just doesn't fit you guys anymorebut to me he seems similar to his previous years just with more combo options, tools and tricks etc.

Pretty much. Truth be told, since they have fully delivered an amazing game and are getting such huge props for the finished product on console from the mainstream and the FGC, it would not surprise me at all if they are already at the drawing board for their next big project.

As much as I would want a new Fatal Fury, Metal Slug or Last Blade game, it  would come as no surprise if they are going to take another shot at making another SNK vs. Capcom game. But for now, back to KOF13!!

Had a decent time online. It kinda' pisses me off that everyone plays keepaway against Clark but I can kinda' understand why but it still pisses me off. Pretty much impossible to pull off clutch shit online with him.

Probably not going to keep Terry on 1st. There's things I like about him, especially that EX Projectile, but he has a lot of things going against him. I remember I did his AA super at the start of the match, knowing my opponent would do something dumb, and they did a random Hangetsuzan with Kim, and Kim hits me out of the Super... Holy shit that's bad.

Billy is amazingly good on 3rd. Just pure rushdown. I love him.

But seriously, use your order select more wisely and maybe Clark won't get cockblocked so much.  Either that or pick Kyo or Iori who don't believe in bad matchups.

Oh yeah, I tend to run Clark 2nd or 3rd. I eventually get in and win 9 times out of 10. I just like hate zoning in general ;).

And it's really weird to suddenly see it in KOF where it didn't really exist in 98/2000/02.

Did you play '02?

Psycho ball... PSYCHO BALL. PSYCHO BALL!

She was one of the top tier trinity.

And don't pretend like Heidern and Krauser don't exist either.

You make a good point, but Heidern was pretty bad in og 98. I think he was upper tier in the UM's, and that was because of his mixup, he wasn't the zoning master in those games I think. Krauser? Yeah, but his strength was his rushdown and how safe he was, not so much his fireball spam. Athena in 02? Definitely! Hated that bitch.

Both Heidern and Krauser could do unblockable fireballs in 98/UM. Krauser was just crazy scary, but I believe he got nerfed in Final Edition. I wish they'd release that on PSN or something.

I don't think zoning is a big deal in KOF, you have so many mobility options and ways around fireballs compared to Street Fighter.

Zoning is necessary in KOF. Without it all people would do is wait for blah person to come at them and counter all day. Zoning is punishment for turtles. That being said zoners are the worst lag offenders out there. If you know throwing a fireball all day w/o lag would get you killed why spam? You learn nothing 'cept being a lag fighter. On a great or offline connection KOF works perfectly. Zoners have to use intelligence and it's a fun mental game.
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: Running Wild on December 23, 2011, 10:15:09 AM
It's necessary, but it's not a dominant strategy. Fireballs in KOF generally have more recovery than fireballs in say, Street Fighter. If you jump over a fireball you can punish the opponent that threw it easily, not the other way around. Then a number of characters have moves that can punish fireballs completely or have projectile invincibility, guard point, etc. Some can often punish from a long distance as well.

Just one more thing I like about SNK games over most other fighting games. I much prefer fighters where being in your opponents face is where you want to be.

Yeah that's what I've always loved about the series. It's a really level playing field for non fireballers. Heh, occaisionally for most chrs in sf, not having a fireball meant not having pants. It's def a bit different now in the sfIV's, but still feel it.

And that's why I love KOF. For me fireballs are used to get turtles to move or make an opponent change their position to a more advantageous one for me (or to put it another way to get out of their comfort zone). The max # of fireballs you can really throw at once is 2 and against someone who knows their way around that can be a stretch. Compared to SF fireballs are simply another tool to work with rather then the dominant strategy like you said.

Sorry, LC, but I wouldn't play a fighter without fireballs. I love the ridiculous nature of projectiles. I'm now running a team of Joe/King/Kyo. Once EX Kyo is on PSN, I'll probable add him instead of normal Kyo. I prefer rushdown but against Clark and good Raidens, I'm running. I had King throw a Raiden last night and it was hysterical. And then I was back to jumping and throwing out Venom Strikes. It's all about a check in the win column.

I don't see a thread on team order unless I missed it, so I'm going to talk about my team order.

I just don't like Terry on first but I got this strong feeling to use Goro. so I used him online a few times and got destroyed. I pick him again and just mess around and holy shit he can do 800 damage with 3 bars and it's easy as fuck to do but ya' know, I like his normals, and he fits my team's theme of characters that nullify fireball spam. Billy is pure rushdown and his EX Staff goes right through projectiles, nuff said about Clark, and now Goro with his full screen Jiraishin certainly makes one think twice about running away with projectiles.

For some reason every match except for 2 or 3 I had online in this game has some type of random lag for me, and it usually comes at the worst times.

Also I think a 2D fighter without projectiles is madness.
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: Mr Bakaboy on December 24, 2011, 09:27:26 AM
Terry can be a 1st for me, but it depends on how I need to use him. If I'm going on the offensive, he has enough speed in his attacks to pressure w/o using bar. However his defense is much more damaging if you have bar with the ex rising tackle does either massive damage or at least puts fear in the opponent to do jump ins. Also the ex crack shoot is a good way to get in on players when the match slows down and neither player wants to give an inch.

This is really nitpicky, but I wonder if some of you guys feel the same way. Keep in mind that I fucking love the game but a few little things annoy me:

Comboing into Grabs: I understand there's links but why even have links? Know what I mean? Why is it super easy for Clark and Goro to combo into stLK, but once you do crLK you have to delay the grab a little bit in order to combo. I just don't get the philosophy behind it and the older KOF's (Unless I'm totally mistaken and if so I will humbly eat my words) didn't have links like that.

Alt guard: I hate it. I know it was in the other games but it sucks. I just think of it as counter productive to strategy. If you're on the ground you should not be safe from grabs unless you hit them out or out of range. Thank god for Guard Break.

Activating Hyper Drive: I honestly think Hyper Drive should've been it's own button. Similar to Neo Max and XI. It's not a huge problem and accidentally activating it but still.

One thing that made me hate SSFIV is endless lobby, it made finding matches really hard because everyone just has 4-8 man lobbies open, so you have to wait a long time just for your turn in which the host might randomly kick you i rather just have player matches like in MVC3 with a rematch option after you finish a match and quickly go at it rather than picking characters all over again.

Yeah, I can't stand waiting either, I like to either wait in training mode (or back in SF4 days wait in arcade mode) and keep practicing until someone joins. The only purpose I feel lobbies are good for if you are streaming or recording a session with others (for a online tournament etc.) or if you are hosting a gathering with others you know, and you want to watch and help people while they play.

I have always preferred lobbies. I feel they tend to make for a friendlier environment. When playing strictly one on one people almost never use their mics, and the silence kinda bothers me. In a lobby it's easier to get a conversation going and it makes me less tense because now I'm suddenly playing with friends instead of a complete stranger that doesn't say anything. I still hate the waiting between fights, but the trade off is worth it to me.

The wait during lobbies isn't that bad most of the time though, i mean just get some mics or make a chat room, and of course spectator mode.

...I'm talkin like 4 man lobbies here, 6 at most because 8 is way to long of a waiting time for me and for everybody else id say.

Some more online musings:

The worst offenders of lag tactics are typically dudes who are Yellow bar and run a team made entirely of shoto characters.

Billy is just a really hard matchup for Goro. Pretty much nothing Goro can do to make Billy come to him, I feel like you have to use jump CD to get in a lot and against Billy that's not a good option. I have to learn some anti-Billy technology with Goro.

Clark is really good on 1st. I don't think he has any bad matchups. Not even against Billy, if you play a little patient you can beat him pretty easily. Online is another story though as always.

I got to play a bootleg copy w/ Mr Karate on it. He's top. I thought he was going to be balanced with no hurricane kicks, (the kicks are all in air QCF attacks) but with those air hurricane kicks he's got everything he needs to rule. He combos so easily it's not even funny, it's a snap to close distance. If someone chases you the straight across air hurricane kick can hit people on the ground when you start it by jumping backwards (when I saw this that's not even fair). He doesn't need a bar of anything to tear you apart. He's scary plain and simple. I'm betting on a ban within a month of usage.

The ones that are adapting and improving faster are most likely the players that already have their basics, fundamentals and mindgames down from playing people and learning the older KOF games, mostly likely 98/02 online (or offline wth a good scene). Even people that don't play KOF seriously but are good at other fighters (sf, bb, marvel) can adapt and learn faster from using general FG knowledge and skills which helps them learn KOF, faster than someone that just dabbled in it.

Hmm... I have won most of my online matches and the ones I have lost were because I was missing hops/combos badly. But can't really say which is my skill level in KOF when the only competition I have is the online. Which as we know is a wild card when it comes to connections. =/

And a couple other people, either way, the point is, my numbers are screwed up.

My record basically says I'm good against meh players, and I'm free against anyone that's actually a KOF player and not just a FG player.

After seeing how EX Iori turned out. I'm quite confident that SNK will make him balanced. I mean, EX Iori had everything that he ever had good into one version of himself that has made him top tier in various KOFs and he's still not God tier?

I think we'll be fine.

I'm willing to put faith in snk to have him not be god tier, but have a feeling he will be top tier which is fine. Although there are not a lot of cracking matchups in XIII.....that mr. karate vs takuma - lol

On appearances, makes takuma look like Dan. Dunno how takuma can fair against karate without being able to properly pressure w fbs.

I want to believe that there will be overall improvements included with the patch, but every indication provided in the description hell makes it look like matchmaking only which I was fearing from the get-go.

o wells, that will at least help a fair amount as connections are almost random. I play with solidshark a lot and if we lag we just reconnect, after enough times we've gotten some quality ones...

The thing is, that barely helps.  Most of us would rather play with people we know, as we'll get longer sets and we know our opponents are at least competent.  The patch doesn't touch the netcode...well, that doesn't improve these meh games we're already having so WTF?

I don't know. I think if you find a really good connection you're going to encounter weird shit, but you can still learn matchups. You just can't take it too seriously. So online still serves a purpose. Just sucks we can't play the Mexican and Brazillians to level up.

I'm not trying to be an apologist over the netcode, but overall I'm kinda' meh about it.

This isn't like 3SOE where the best netcode out there is horribly misused and we have something that really isn't playable even if the guy is in the same state.

The problem with playing online (especially with a game that lags this bad) is that you are almost playing a completely different game.  You see a lot of random shit that just doesn't work offline at all and players learn to use the lag to their advantage where as using these lag tactics offline would get them murdered by a half decent player.  I'm just lucky to have a bunch of friends that are all really good at fighting games that live locally.

The problem w/ lag tactics is many don't even know they are using lag tactics, or are too frustrated at the time to care.  I've played highly respected players on xbox180 back in the day who did rushdowns when clearly the lag gave a tactical advantage to the person who is on the offensive. Players who are zoners in SF try to play KOF and realize the only thing they have any luck with is spamming fireballs. They don't play offline enough to know this is lag tactics so they think they are just winning.

The list goes on and on. This is one of the reasons why I tend to collect fighters I want to play with or players with a great connection. I've been online playing since around 2003 and it's the same gripes over and over again.

Heh played a dude and won, who does he pick in the next match? Robert, Athena and Kensou. What's the first thing he does when the round starts? Back dash into the corner and throw fireballs.

Luckily there was little lag (even though it was a 2 bar connection), which resulted in an ocv in my favour, but yeah, kicked him from the room right after.

Still, even with the BS here and there I am still happy we at least have this netcode. Have played well over a thousand matches online (can't say for sure since the game glitched and my stats got reset a few times) and will definitely continue on.

Even if the netcode isn't amazing I still feel like I'm learning the game and consider if what I am doing would be viable off line or not while playing. And I've pretty much stopped using fireball dependant characters, even though I have confidence in my fireball whoring skills I don't know if my opponent is falling to my skill or the lag.

Fireball spamming is a legit strategy online and offline, you just have to do it right.

Fireball Zoning offline? Yes. Fireball Spamming.(a la throw fireballs as fast as you can) offline? No. Closest you can get is Ash and even then you can close distance pretty fast and work around the flip kick. KOF really punishes fireball spamming on a great connection or offline. That being said fireball zoning is a fun thing to work with on KOF cause you have to think about the concequences in throwing out a fireball. The lack of safety in the fireball maes it more exciting to use it rather then run away and spam being a viable option.

Spamming is just throwing fireballs as fast as you can to keep distance from your opponent. Zoning is using fireballs to move your opponent into a position that is advantageous to you. For example throwing fireballs to make a defensive opponent move or getting a opponent to jump or roll to an unsafe position so you can punish him without overextending your positioning.

Spamming is next to impossible to pull on an experienced KOF player cause there are many ways to get around fireballs. Zoning on the other hand is used quite a bit.

So a friend asked me to get him KoF as a late christmas present (since he does really want kof). However since he didn't specify WHICH KoF, you guys think it might be a bit evil if he found out that I did get him KoF...12?

Anything lower than 4 bars tends to mediocre, though random times it could be decent.  But it's susceptible to heavy input delay, and when it lag spikes...hell ensues.

As for the Prank...normally, for other series, it'd be funny.  Giving someone KOF12 is a declaration of WAR!

If you have enough money, buy both (or just a really old KOF, though 12 should be cheap) and give the older version to him. Then leave the new one somewhere he wont notice until you leave...and do a lot of searching.

Is he new to the series? XIII might make him love it and continue on playing it, XII very well might to the opposite.

As for the netcode, I stick with 3 bars and above. 3 bars is good and very playable and the few times I experienced 4 bars it was near offline quality.

We all knew the risks from the start, I figured from the beginning the netcode would be awful.  If you don't have a scene near you for the game, then you have no reason to keep it.

yeah I know what you mean since T6 is one of my favorite fighting games and the horid online really ended up killing it for myself and many others who now can only consider themselves "enthusiasts" opposed to genuine players of the game.

Also for all the fireball spamming talk outside the online I really don't get the complaints since it's a game and you do what you can within the rules to win and in KOF you tend to have a lot more options then in other FGs to outright avoid them, so to me it's really just a matter of adapting to your opponent.

I must be the only one with this game here, and that's one reason i left it long ago and haven't played again since then.

Post by: Mr Bakaboy on January 01, 2012, 01:32:30 AM
The gripe with fireballs is mostly a translation issue. Most people mistake Spamming for a good defensive Zoner. The Zoners take offense to this (I'm sure partially cause they hear that they are spammers all of the time) so they feel the need to speak up on spamming.

Quick way to tell if you are a spammer. If your fireballs miss or get blocked 80% of the time you are probably a spammer. Zoners tend to throw fireballs that will hit at least 50% of the time. I hold Zoners in high reguard since it takes a lot of thought to make it work properly. People can say they use King fireballs all they want, but if you just throw out the fireballs & your opponent is hardly slowed down by it you're probably not winning too much. Chances are the King players Zone.

Game's great, but if you can't honestly play the best part of it, no reason to keep it.  Best to trade it off at the first opportunity you get before it deteriorates in value.

However, if you believe that there's the slightest chance the netcode can be fixed, or you can get offline competition, then I guess keep it in the mean time.

Since the only thing stopping me from getting my comp is a license and car, I'm keeping it, I love the game, and I have like...2 manageable connections to play with.

Yeah well some people need to accept that there are places people won't play FG's, let alone KOF.  Now I'm fortunate, I get a car, license, and I have 3 scenes within a 2 hour radius of me I could go to.  Others will not be that fortunate and that's the damn truth, whether because of transportation issues, money issues, or the fact that people in their area just don't give a rat's ass about FG's.

And it's not as simple as just getting people into them.  If you told any random gamer the effort it takes to get into a FG, let alone one like KOF, they'll run straight the other way.  Most want instant gratification they can get in things like FPS games among others.

It's not that simple for others, and I wish people would stop trying to make it out like it is.

Unless you live in a location that has a very small population there will be other people interested in fighting games.  Check the regional section of SRK if you are having trouble.  Yes, there are situations that keep people from being able to join a community and no, not every city is going to have a massive community.  But you really don't need that many people, you can just have 4 or 5 people playing in someone's apartment and have pretty good competition.

also some of you guys need to start thinking about others peoples situations and why they depend on the online community

I'm not sure why you took what I said personally (defensive much?) and I have no clue why this statement was directed towards me as I have no control over the quality of KOF's netplay.  The fact is that KOF's online is complete ass and unplayable 99% of the time.  Therefore, if people want to find competition they are going to have to look locally.

And it's not as simple as just getting people into them.  If you told any random gamer the effort it takes to get into a FG, let alone one like KOF, they'll run straight the other way.  Most want instant gratification they can get in things like FPS games among others.

That's not true, you give people too little credit.  If they game is good, people will be willing to try it.  When I lived in GA, most the FG players only played SF4, I introduced them to Melty Blood and more than half of them were immediately addicted and a small MB community was created with almost no effort.  The type of gamer that wants instant gratification is not going to be the guy that goes out of his way to meet with other players to learn and have real competition.

Who are these people that think 13 is like 12? I have to assume you're talking about people into entirely different fighters like maybe Virtua Fighter or maybe MK... long shot would be Clay Fighter ;) .

I would argue that KOF isn't that different from SF. It's not like playing SF than playing MK.

Some more musings from training mode:

I really like Hwai, I think I'll use him as a backup. Have to get used to the inputs for his grab super and Neo Max. It's also a plus that I can pull off semi-successful his Hyper Drive combos. Hwai is ultimately a better version of Joe minus zoning. Just take Joe's specials, make them better, give him better air control, remove the useless Slash Kick, and there ya' go. Plus he can get drunk with 1 frame invincibility  and adds to commentary hype.

I can do Goro's Hyper Drive into Neo Max without many problems. It's funny that just being as basic as possible nets you 850 damage with 3 bars. With Clark it's a bit of a bitch to get the timing down on when to cancel into Neo Max off of Grab Super, there's times where I swear I did it right but nope. Gotta' work on that. I might need a new controller, I like the Hori but the D-pad is a bit stiff and pulling off HCB moves is a bit of a pain.

I don't know if that Bala combo with Clark http://youtu.be/AY2G3uAW6iw (http://youtu.be/AY2G3uAW6iw) is going to work with me or not. My philosophy has always been to keep combos that I know I can do 10 times out of 10. If I can't do it that consistently than I might have the opportunity and fuck it up because I went for the fancy stuff. That combo is hard as hell to pull off and it only nets you (not counting the grab super in there) roughly 700 damage. But, comboing into EX Grab and cancel into Grab Super will do about 530 damage. Is an extra 170 or so damage worth being extra risky? I've decided that no it isn't, at least for me.

I just can't get Billy's Hyper Drive stuff down. I've made it a priority when doing Corner combos to go for resets.

Too hype for Mr. Karate DLC.

It's pretty hard getting people into the series that no body knows how to play, especially one that thinks that XIII is another XII. Where I'm at players called the series garbage without even playing one of them. It took me a hell of a long time to convince that the game is really good and it's worth the time and effort.

Who are these people that think 13 is like 12? I have to assume you're talking about people into entirely different fighters like maybe Virtua Fighter or maybe MK... long shot would be Clay Fighter ;) .

I would argue that KOF isn't that different from SF. It's not like playing SF than playing MK.
But it's different enough to make people complain about it and the people are the ones that only plays mvc 3 and sf4.

Lol, but it's true.  SF4 has massive reversal windows, fully invincible reversals and easy inputs (like hitting df,df+p for an srk and hcb/f motions requiring only 4 directional inputs instead of 5).  I'm not necessarily bashing those games, but it's a fact the inputs are extremely easy.  Anyone that started playing fighting games when SF4 came out is going to have trouble with KOF (and most other fighters) when they find out mashing reversals causes them to eat a meaty and they can't pull of hcb moves.

That's not true, you give people too little credit.  If they game is good, people will be willing to try it.  When I lived in GA, most the FG players only played SF4, I introduced them to Melty Blood and more than half of them were immediately addicted and a small MB community was created with almost no effort.  The type of gamer that wants instant gratification is not going to be the guy that goes out of his way to meet with other players to learn and have real competition.

Not every place has FG players, not every place have people that go on SRK, that go on Dream Cancel so stop acting like that's the case.

News fucking flash so listen up, NOT EVERYONE PLAYS FGS.  Simple as fucking that.  Then there's those who just play for the flash, like in the MKs, or the Marvels, or hell, even Soul Caliber.  People that don't give a shit about getting good, but just playing.  And those people, give them KOF, sure they might like it, but you'll probably have to play half-assed for months, lest you risk turning them off.

You want an example?  I have friends that don't mind getting into different games.  Brought over MvC3 for the hell of it.  They loved the graphics, the feel, the flash, the combos.  After an hour, they barred me from playing it with them because even as half assed as I could play, I was still doing too well.  This isn't uncommon in other places either.  What a fucking scene that is.

I agree people should get out and look, but when people have gone out of their fucking way to tell you they've taken an active search in finding a scene and have found nothing, shut the fuck up, take their word for it and get off your god damn high horse, unless you want to take a goddamn flight out to where they live and threaten people at gunpoint to play KOF with them.

I'm sorry, but it's like finding fossils.  You can dig and dig, but sometimes it's not a matter of just putting more effort into it, sometimes the only thing down there is more and more worm shit and nothing more.

LOL I had that exact thing happen to me with MvC3, except since im actually good at it, it took a good 10 minutes at most for them to seriously not let me play at all...on the good side 1 of my friends came back like a month or so later and had trained and beat me once I was joking around and then didn't even want to play me again after though >_>

*looks at conversation on this page* Awesome way to start the year! lmao

Anyways, on a good note, I got my little nephew (9yr old) into KOF, been playing him and he can dodge and do fireballs now. I'm a proud Uncle! lol

But yeah, he gets beaten badly online, but at least he doesn't get discorage so easily so far. But I'm surprised he really liked Kyo, Iori, K and Kula for their "powers" and looks, even when he also seen Marvel Vs Capcom 3 (he also owns the game) he prefers KOF over it.

Yeah, I'm shocked and proud at the same time. lol

some of you guys need to quit thinking that we haven't tried to find a offline community around us,  

Unless you live in a location that has a very small population there will be other people interested in fighting games.  Check the regional section of SRK if you are having trouble.  Yes, there are situations that keep people from being able to join a community and no, not every city is going to have a massive community.  But you really don't need that many people, you can just have 4 or 5 people playing in someone's apartment and have pretty good competition.

also some of you guys need to start thinking about others peoples situations and why they depend on the online community

I'm not sure why you took what I said personally (defensive much?) and I have no clue why this statement was directed towards me as I have no control over the quality of KOF's netplay.  The fact is that KOF's online is complete ass and unplayable 99% of the time.  Therefore, if people want to find competition they are going to have to look locally.

And it's not as simple as just getting people into them.  If you told any random gamer the effort it takes to get into a FG, let alone one like KOF, they'll run straight the other way.  Most want instant gratification they can get in things like FPS games among others.

That's not true, you give people too little credit.  If they game is good, people will be willing to try it.  When I lived in GA, most the FG players only played SF4, I introduced them to Melty Blood and more than half of them were immediately addicted and a small MB community was created with almost no effort.  The type of gamer that wants instant gratification is not going to be the guy that goes out of his way to meet with other players to learn and have real competition.
(sorry for the big quote btw)

i live in a pretty small-ish town and the the most where most of the people just play call of duty  or other various shooters if i had to take a guess at what fighting games were played around here it would be either mk or mvc

and let me explain my situation to you since you dont seem to understand where im coming from. i have very little time, patience or money among other things that aren't gonna be explained here, as much as i would love to drive about to play games with other people i just cant which is why i absolutely rely on the online part being at least decent.

and yes i did bit of offense at your comment it bugs the fuck out of me when people who have a offline group of people make it seem like its so fuckin easy to find one, it also bugs me how they just blow off the online part just because they dont give a shit about it then proceed to bitch and moan when other people wont play the game

Both online and offline are crucial in this day and age. I have a fairly healthy scene. It is Capcom dominated but several of those guys are interested in XIII and that's great but the reality is I cannot play them that frequently. They are all younger than me and keep college and part-time job hours. I work a weekday job and am on a strict schedule. Most days, if I want competition, it's online. Online is also important because it helps you to learn more match ups.

I think you need to reread my posts, I'm not blowing off the importance of online play at all, but it's just a fact that KOF's is virtually unplayable.  I would love for it to have a functioning online play so I could get some practice in between local sessions but it's not possible. 

Does everyone on this forum take differing ideas or opinions as a personal attack?  It's very frustrating for a new poster to try and express thoughts when people put words in my mouth (strawman) and throw a hissy fit about things I never said nor insinuated.

Look this site is dedicated to a game that doesn't get that much love compare to other fighters. I'm pretty sure the guys that took offense to what you said heard the same thing before you. I know you didn't mean it as an insult but see it in their perspective for a bit. They want the game to blow up, but some doesn't even have a local fighting game scene let alone a KOF scene. They need the online portion to even compete. Offline and online are both very important to the scene. For some it's a necessity. Don't let the argument discourage you from posting your thought as long as it's not a flame bait or troll.

I also think there is a problem with different opinions on the netcode. If you have a slower netspeed then you are probably going to have a hard time getting a decent match in. However people who have a better net connection are getting games in that are quite good.

It gets tiring to hear this is shit and everyone should drop this game cause it's shitty netcode. I understand the complaints to some degree, but for people who lived in the arcade generation, it's not like you could show up at any old time and the place would be jumpn. Sometimes you could get a match. Sometimes you don't especially if your game is not the popular one.

If you do strggle to find a decent match bug the people who you have a decent match to be on your friends list. I struggled through the xbox 180 years doing the same thing and having crappy internet so my options were limited, but it nice to have at least some options.

I wouldn't drop the game over bad netcode. Luckily I know some people in relatively close by but still. It's not the worst netcode known to man and if you find a few good connections it's pretty manageable.

Would have been great if atlus could get what the guys at arc system works used on blazblue for their netcode seeing as how atlus is chummy with them recently with the upcoming release of the persona fighting game, but then again SNK probably too stubborn with Game sync software since i heard snk owns a part of them.

That's a bit of a maybe to me if that was ever possible. I could expect excellent netcode from ArcSys if XIII was constructed or played similar to BB. I do wonder if that 5 frame delay they used for BB would've helped. But since the current netcode has been proven to work under some circumstances now, hope one or a few attempts will make it decent for most.

Third Strike online uses GGPO and Honestly I could say that the netcode is worse than the one used in XIII, at least from my experience

People should realize that netcodes are not some sort of magic device that will run everything fine, the netcode used to run 95 on psn will not necessarily run well in XIII, and so and on, even from experience, the only flawless netcode is the one used in BB, and still I'm sure that is not as perfect as how some people could describe, at least from a more hardcore perspective, at least I thought that a yellow bar connection  in SF IV was good, but after a while learning better the game I realized that there was a semi notorious lag

At least, SF IV and BB netcodes are miles better than XIII, which IMO really sucks, and still don't know how much the update could help, at least I think that the game should be playable in yellow bars when the not so hardcore players don't realize that there is some flaws, but at least for KOF I don't think that there will never be a netcode that could handle well the most complicated stuff (98 runs fine for me, 2002 in ggpo runs good as well, but not exactly perfect) at least I think that is bad to follow a game for his netcode since never will give the full experience, but still understand that at this age is necesary to give a large life span to some of the players with no access to other guys, but it will not help to gro a wcommunity necesarily (BB netcode is flawless but the game is not at full power at this moment, MVC3 netcode completely sucks but the game is doing well community wise)

And if Skullgirls netcode goes down...well we're all screwed.

But the thing is, about all netcodes.  The affects of delay or rollbacks become more drastic the better at the game you become.  When you're bad at the game, you won't notice it a lot or at all unless it's REALLY bad (my friend who doesn't really do FGs could feel the delay on Release MK9).  As you get better, and your timing improves and you use more advanced tactics, the delay or rollbacks become more and more apparent.

So maybe...we're asking the wrong questions.  Maybe we should find out exactly how far low players can feel the lag.  To try and word it better, let's see if we can find the consistent level between players good enough to be truly affected by lag, and those who don't really notice it as much. 

For this, we'd have to purposely avoid 4 Bar matches.

For this, we'd have to purposely avoid 4 Bar matches.

You have a good idea of what's going on in the netcode but 2 things you might want to think about.

1. This game has NO leniency for lag. Everything is split second. I played kof 96 on PSN with lag coming from my hookup (roommate hooked up the PS3 through the sound system then the tv) I could still play decently. He also plugged in the xbox the same way (fyi no I don't usually play this system) and the game is unplayable against someone who is decent at the game. It makes the old KOF's seem lag friendly. Any lag you get looks magnified compared to anything out there.

2. The memory usuage on this game is massive. When was the last time you remember dealing with load times in between matches for a fighting game? Tekken has already stated that their major problem with netcode was the amount of data being sent cause of the game being so data heavy. KOF is in the same boat so more then likely the big issue will be if Playmore can condense the data packets down. To which GGPO, Arc System and the other decent netcode games do not have a problem with (P.S. Street Fighter IV is 2.5 D so it's a little less data heavy then Tekken like the backgrounds for example.)

Correct me if I'm wrong (and I very well may be) but I thought the only thing being sent was the input data, everything else is client side.  This is the main reason a lot of people called "BS" when Seth said SF4 has too much data to send with GGPO netcode.

You called the person in question a baby and continued to insult him for little to no reason at all. That's not exactly a good way to get someone on your side.

I hate to sound like a broken record here but maybe you should read the entire exchange before commenting.  If you still can't figure it out then there's no hope for you.  Either way, I'm beyond over it at this point.

I can cope with the lag if its not too bad.....but after playing several player games online today with no probs.....I decided to play some ranked matches and all 4 matches never even got underway before it lost connection...........checked my player data and my match completion percent has dropped.

Stop worrying about stats, they're pointless anyway.

Wish there was a way to clear player data (without losing unlockables) or hide stats :/

Correct me if I'm wrong (and I very well may be) but I thought the only thing being sent was the input data, everything else is client side.  This is the main reason a lot of people called "BS" when Seth said SF4 has too much data to send with GGPO netcode.

Harada is saying the same thing when asked about GGPO. To which I can understand cause if you follow supercade they even say on theirs that the formula used for CPS3 games is totally different then the other games cause of how much memory is involved in the game. I'm not positive on which part of the memory usage messes with it. But so many different netcodes complaining about it there has to be something to it.

The problem with Supercade is the delay. There's significantly more delay, especially for 3rd Strike. Just trying to parry in 3S on Supercade is a night and day experience. The timing is entirely different. Which is why everyone rightfully so trashes Supercade. 2DF was surprisingly better than GGPO, but had some sound bugs. What happened between 2DF and Supercade only Damdai can say.

Yeah I agree. I stopped playing it on Supercade cause it was so bad. The 360 version as bad as people make it out to be is WAY better then Supercade, I can at least feel comfortable parrying online with it.

Reason I brought it up was it was another person complaining about the memory used. I know other people made it work but it's a good example in my book for my earlier point.

No the real funny thing is that people always hype up GGPO like it's a miracle netcode.  OH SAVE US GGPO SAVE US FROM CAPCOM AND SNK AND MAHVUL!  The reality of what GGPO is, is that it makes good connections better and shitty connections skip frames so it's technically the same since it just skips frames so if you know when to properly attack, then it's still near the same.  However GGPO does not compensate for shitty connections, wireless connections, asstastic metropcs internet.  I found it hilarious when people were stunned that GGPO wasn't a miracle and they were like "GGPO SUCKS.  SF4 has better netcode!"  Just made me laugh and laugh.

^ You and me both. I never got into GGPO cause the selection of games was less then Supercade and knew there was a good chance Supercade and GGPO won't like to be on my old shitty computer together. It never bothered me cause I knew a shitty connection is a shitty connection when it comes down to it. Hell I had a few xbox 180 matches that were next to flawless just cause the connection was good.  When it comes down to net connection until the normal net speed surpasses the net speed that is really required to run whatever game we are talking about it will never be what we truly want it to be.

BB's netcode is trash, it's only useful for doing chains of attacks, not for reaction based stuff. 5 frames is an unplayable delay.

2002 on Supercade has 0 delay frames added to it, the only game that has extra delay is 3S I think, ¿trashing Supercade just because of that one game?. It's a fallacy to say all games on it have extra delay.

Supercade has 0 delay added to all games, but has no delay control where you can add to it to make your online matches run smoother. Ggpo comes with 1 delay added to it by default which you can decrease, so in fact Supercade is by default less laggy than Ggpo.

The only way to go for fighting games producers nowadays is to build netcodes with the premise of completely or almost completely eliminating delay, since the technology is already out there. It looks shameful, how companies haven't been able to come up with better netcodes than ggpo and supercade with the same vision. There is no other way to offer an acceptable online fighting game. 2 delay frames is the last playable spot a good player must accept, anything beyond that is unplayable and distorting the metagame in the end. When it comes to games like XIII with input delay netcodes, I can withstand up to 6 frames but in the end I'm not playing the game as it should be played.

Um.... Actually none of us were trashing Supercade in general. Just the 3rd Strike. I even said I am exclusively (computer wise) on Supercade. 'Cept for 3S I like playing on it. Had the best match from someone from Japan on Supercade (Alpha 3 to be exact). Now do I really care anymore if they fix 3S? Hell no. But the original post was just to say Supercade had memory issues with getting a decent netcode on 3S.

No offence, but seems to me like you haven't actually played BB online.

I played Blazblue online.  How the game works is what keeps it from "lag" but the netcode itself isn't anything special.  The game was made around online gameplay which makes it so every move takes at least five frames and is represented by five button presses online.  Because of this incredibly generous buffer "which makes the most stringent things five frames minimum" it makes online appear better since there's no one frame links, no 1/60th of a second timing to get shit done.  It also gives a lot more leniency towards other things.  Since the game was built this way, when taken online lag is nowhere near as bad since there's that leniency already built in.  Street Fighter and King of Fighters are NOT built on this and still have one frame links, and very tight combos as part of their fundamental gameplay.  Because the game wasn't built around online netplay, the game changes considerably when played online.

KOF at EVO; no longer a joke or a contradiction.

Finally is barely a strong-enough word to describe what has just been announced.

Thanks to SNKP and Atlus for making arguably the best fighter in years, and thanks to the players and fans for playing and leveling-up. I might cry seeing XIII on that EVO stream.

From this point, I seriously hope SNKP continues on with supporting XIII and making more awesome new games. And I hope the community will keep getting bigger and stronger so this isn't the only year or game that an SNK fighter will show up at EVO.



I promised myself I'd make a trip out there in case this would happen. Since I really can't now, if there's a way to support DC players like Kane and crew to get them there, I'd happily start donating what I can.

Here's the deal folks. I plan on checking in Thursday evening and checking out Monday morning. I can't make hotel reservations tonight because I'm just barely short. But I get paid in a couple days. If rooms are still available then the total cost will be $712.32. I'm willing to share a room with anyone who gives me half that.

3 things you need to think about before taking my offer.

1) Once you give me your half there is no going back. If something comes up and you can't go tough. I won't be dicked around on this.

2) If you can't get your money together in a timely fashion don't bother.

3) I snore like a mother fucker. Bring ear protection.

Need an opinion. Played a guy yesterday afternoon on KOF XIII. The lag was horrendous, but this guy was doing his combos like there was nothing wrong. After 1 match I bailed. Well I played him early this morning and the lag was tolerable. We had 3 close matches 1 I won. then suddenly the craptastic lag rears it's head and this guy seems to be unfazed again.

Is it just me or does it seem that this guy pull the old school trick of messing with the online to get easy wins? I haven't really seen this since xbox 180 days but it really does seem similar to those days.

I was hosting. The speed was erratic & my inputs were dropping randomly.  He seemed to have no problems with dropping whtsoever. The 1st time I just chalked it up to a fluke but when we were even through 3 matches and then the lag started it seemed curious. Hewas a Bishop if that matters.

Almost the same with me. Guy was just short of using random. Was using most of the cast and pretty well. I tried to stick with three at the time, to no avail 37-1. Once I picked Kim, who he used a lot, I started accidentally pulling off links and supers like I was a pro. I concluded that either he was taking advantage somehow, or just got that used to playing like that.

Tried out online yesterday and realized on player matches the game just matches you to anyone around the world, played a guy from a america (im from UK), which might have been the cause of a lot the horrible lag, but this makes me wonder why they didn't include a region filter like they have in ranked mode, hopefully the online patch addresses this issues and includes a flag indicator so you know where they are from.

Ummm... it does have a rematch option on player match. The people entering your room with a 2 bar when you have a 3 bar and above is a glitch. When the person selects your room it does say that they have a 3 bar connection. Now just because it says 2 bars does not necessarly mean it's 2 bars. It might be a 3 bar match. The bar system is completely messed up unfortunately and if someone comes into your room I would recommed playing them once to see how it plays rather then saying they aren't worth playing.

It isn't as messed up as it is that whatever it uses to measure ping between both players usually equals a worser than normal result most of the time, it happens on SSF4 AE for PC too, althought instead of showing one less bar it's one more bar.

Ummm... it does have a rematch option on player match. The people entering your room with a 2 bar when you have a 3 bar and above is a glitch.

Nah i dont mean the actual connection, when you create a lobby you can say that you want to only fight 3+ bars, but the problem is it doesn't stop people that are like 2 bar or 1 bar connection joining your lobby pretty annoying.

To be fair, I've often entered 3 or 4 bar rooms only to see the connection indicator drop a bar or 2, so it's not always the player. I went into a room marked 4 bars and it showed 1 bar once in the room.

Nah, when you start searching for custim match there are four columns, 1st is room name, 2nd is time, 3rd other and 4th the actual connection between you and the player, on the "other" column it shows the ping the player wants to play for example you can set your lobby so that you want only 3bars and up joining your lobby however that doesn't stop people who have 1 bar connection with you from joining the lobby which is set to 3 bars and up.

I didn't make it to Dust Bowl. My esteemed apologies to Running Wild. I was looking forward to some offline action but I swear that the times they scheduled for 3S was about 11 PM. So I woke up late and thought I had plenty of time. I feel like an asshole for missing that shit. I wanted to break some asses with Clark. :(

However, I did find at least one guy online who knew how to play. If you guys ever run into Jairo_Killer69 or KimKaphan on PSN, play them. They're Mexican and good.

I really like Hwa Jai on 2nd. Solid pressure. Love his damage and Grab Super. I might abandon Goro over him. My hats off to Goro users but he's really hard to use to lock down people.

I didn't make it either Louis, my sinus cold I've had since last week wouldn't go away. Oh well, not many KOF players upstate, it would of been a very small tournament, plus it was a free tournament, so no cash prize. Without me there, hopefully one of "THE BROTHERS" took it. :D

Well the competition needs some improvement on the fundamental for KOF 13. I played players that had some form of understanding but not quite there. Now one of the player from srk seems to have animosity saying that no one was good in Dust Bowl and calling the Albany crew nobodies (which funny enough Albany took top 3). But good games to all the players there in both casuals and tournament. Hopefully we'll play more in the future.

For Mexico: our known player BALA, Romance, El Rosa and LDA.Kula (he'll focus only on XIII in next month)
France: Frionel
Japan got many tops in arcade version (1.1), but for console, I just know Dune and Oogosho, both from eLive

Thanks for the response. I'll keep an eye on those players you mentioned.

What do you guys think about this boycott from eLive Pro? They made an announcement saying they will not be sending any players to compete in tournaments for game companies that are supporting SOPA. I know this effects players who are playing SF4 2012 since Capcom is part of the ESA and ESA is pro SOPA. I'm not sure if SNK-P or ATLUS are part of the ESA so I'm not if this effects KoFXIII players.

If they are then wouldn't this prevent players such as Mr.KOF from entering tournaments?

It's really unfortunate since I just want to see the best players compete but I understand how bad SOPA is going to be for all of us if it gets passed.

Asking for spectator mode is probably a moot point sice it takes away bandwidth and they are trying to conserve as much as possible. What they could do is put back in match save mode where you can download other people's matches. This was already in KOF XII. Just to have the ability to watch how other people play would be good enough for me.
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: BioBooster on January 10, 2012, 12:55:45 AM
Downloadable matches sounds like a pretty good compromise. The infrastructure would already be there to filter out scrub matches with the ranking system already in the game. Like that idea.

@Killey, I def understand the elive ban. Their business would be utterly destroyed if that passes. I really hope that it won't affect KOF either. I would hope that snkp would be against the bill bc of all of the positive press kof got due to streams and youtube.

@ryouma, I like the idea of countering fireballs a lot - don't think that has been done in this manner before and is unique. I think it may appear a bit much considering the rest of karate's movelist and how he comes across as overwhelmingly strong. I'm still really interested to see how crazy he really is or isn't.

@killey, yeah same. I guess that is the most potent way for them to do battle unfortunately... In general, the top COs whether it be movies/music/games may be looking to support it in order to stunt exposure of underdog competitors in their respective areas.

@sibarraz, good question. Blog says tomorrow for 360 and 1/12 for ps3, maybe the same outside of north america?
NA is probably the 20th along with NESTs Kyo for ps3, haven't heard a thing about 360 dates for NA..

So Xxenace is a Sexbox fanboy. And Genesis does what Nintendon't. I like this forum all the more everyday ;) . Genesis had better action games and beat 'em ups. It seems like people prefer the SNES more if they love RPG's....

Anyway...

Legit question: How do you get out of Yuri's Dive Kick setups? Especially if it's Clark vs Yuri. Because Clark doesn't have a good AA he can do on reaction and that Dive Kick has a huge hitbox and equally huge hit and block stun. I was playing KimKaphan last night and he nailing me with her Dive Kicks and then during a crossup Dive Kick. I also didn't realize that Yuri's EX Grab seems to AA and will hit you if you short hop.

jump up back cd if only he's abusing it. Her Ex command throw is a reversal. You can block it but I don't think you can punish it unless you have charged his ex Gatling gun ready. I think she gets pushed back to far for command throw punish. Also I think you get free command throw if you block dive kick above the head. Dunno if this will work since I'm just theory fighting. Hopefully this will help.

Edit: tried it and it doesn't work. the push block is too big.

Most likely it'll get stuffed and if the dive kick crosses up it won't auto correct.

Thanks dude. Gonna' try that out. I was playing him online so maybe it was just that little bit of delay made the dive kick gdlk (which tends to happen a lot online in my experience in 3S) but I never played a good Yuri online or offline so who knows.

Got Mr. Karate. Mixed feelings overall. He has really safe pressure strings with crD into Fireball and crB into Fireball. It seems like he can tick into his Throw like Clark's B SAB but not nearly as good, but mixing that up with his crB spam might make it pretty scary.

Haven't explored his counters or EX Counter at all. The window to hit them after a regular counter seems really tight. His air tatsu isn't safe at all. But backdashing into it seems pretty sweet.

Mixed feeling because... I don't know. Odd vibes I guess. He's definitely gonna' be top but I guess feel mixed about him because I don't know how good I can be with him. If that makes any sense.

ehy guys i know it could seems weird since the dlc characters r out from just yesterday but do u think  a petition with a list of ur favs characters for next dlcs would have any sense ? im not even sure there ll be others dlcs but lots of players r still pissed off about some legends not included in the game like b.mary yamazaki kasumi and lots more. so if on the other side ppl ask and writes petition to have megaman why wouldnt we send a message to snkp letting them know new cracaters would be very welcome ?
hope this was not too much OT or too stupid as a fan and player request but some of u have contacts with snkp so just why dont set a list ?

Downloadable matches sounds like a pretty good compromise. The infrastructure would already be there to filter out scrub matches with the ranking system already in the game. Like that idea.


There is already a download match function in KOF 13, but it's limited to the monthly top 100.  You have to go to leaderboards and scroll to monthly top.  However, the matches there are kind of hit or miss.  As you know, the monthly top ranks only the total wins during a month, so the people at the top are not necessary top players, just top grinders.  Also not everyone chooses to upload their matches.

What I really want though, is an auto save match log like SF4.  Most of the time I don't save my matches, because I don't want the other side waiting while I'm taking my time to save replays.

So Xxenace is a Sexbox fanboy. And Genesis does what Nintendon't. I like this forum all the more everyday ;) . Genesis had better action games and beat 'em ups. It seems like people prefer the SNES more if they love RPG's....

I loved some RPGs, but a big reason I loved the SNES was because it had six buttons on it's pad. That was kinda important when a certain Capcom arcade hit got ported...

Genesis was personally my least favorite Sega system. I think it was great and all, but compared to the Saturn (best control pad ever, plus incredible arcade ports) and Dreamcast (even better arcade ports, plus Jet Grind Radio), just can't keep up.

As for future DLC characters - while there's been tons of "KOFXIII-style sprites" made by fans, SNK themselves showed off what Oswald, Momoko, Malin and Chang would have looked like in KOFXIII style. My guess is that these characters were planned for the game, but cut at some point due to time constants. Regardless, this means that they likely had some work done, so they might be able to finish them as full characters.

Personally, I think SNK is working on KOFXIV. Considering how the game sold out in Japan and is apparently hard to find in some parts of the states, I think the game has definitely been a success. I bet that Oswald, Momoko, Malin and Chang will just be in the next game, which is likely going to be a dream match (considering the Ash Saga is over - I bet all the members of Saiki's crew will just end up allying with Ron for a saga centered around him).

Looking at the new characters between KOFXII and KOFXIII, there's K', Kula, Maxima, Mai, Yuri, King, Takuma, Vice, Saiki, Billy, EX Kyo, EX Iori, Mr. Karate - 13 characters, or 8 if you don't count Vice, Saiki, EX Kyo, EX Iori or Mr. Karate as being full characters (as in, the reused many assets from certain characters present in KOFXII).

So, at least 8 characters will likely be in KOFXIV. I'm betting on (based on popularity - and the requirement that, as an Ash Saga dream match, they had to have shown up in KOF'2003, XI, XII or XIII):
Rookie Team: Momoko, Oswald, Malin.
Garou Team: Tizoc, B.Jenet, Gato.
Agent Team: Vanessa, Blue Mary, Ramon.

That's my bets, along with Adel returning as a 'final' boss and Rugal returning as the true final boss.

there r lots of nice characters in ur bets and really hope some ofthem ll come true.
what i was asking for (maybe the mods can say if it is possible or usefull to do it) is open a thread where we can put our preferences about the characters we want to see as dlcs ( if they ll ever be ) or the next episode (since it probably ll be a dream match it is not necessary to write them as a team).
dunno if this sort of list could be of any help to snkp following the system crapcom used asking fans their favorite characters, or if snkp already has an idea of who they ll move in cause of the story or whatever.

Well if there's a KOF 14 it would most likely be a dream match. Since 2k3 and 11 were part of the Ash Saga I see those character coming back along with other popular characters. I'd imagine  that they'll probably tweak or completely change the game's mechanics like in the previous entry.

The thing about dream matches is that they have a lot of sprites being recycled or re-used, SNK doesn't have this option now. Bringing back certain characters just for the dream match would be a complete waste too. So a new saga is next I think.

One big reason I want a new saga more than a dream match is b/c SNK will introduce a brand new lead and other new characters, can't wait to see what they come up with, they are so damn good at it. I think the new lead will be female.

Wasn't KoFXII considered a dream match?

KoFXIV would most likely be a dream match since due to story purposes they would have to scrap characters like Ash and Saiki and I think it would be a waste to toss a character like Saiki that they specifically made for the console version of XIII. On top of that, I think they would probably remove some teams to include other teams in the game. I can't really see Team Elisabeth returning in XIV. That being said I would be pretty pumped to see some brand new characters along side some older characters like Angel, Foxy, Vanessa, Whip, and Oswald.

In terms of new characters here's an old image that was put out during KoFXII development stage. The very bottom of the image had concepts for some new characters.

May as well ask here too:

What are some safe blockstrings with Hwa?

Is Slide (downtowards B) into B Dragon Tail safe? I tested it against 1 guard Jump and it seems pretty safe, I wouldn't put it past grapplers like Clark to punish it though. But I think you can fuck that up if you use Yomi with his C Grab Super.

I would love to see team Orochi come back, love that team. Yashiro is probably my all-time kof fav, but have a feeling that normal Yashiro's fighting style would clash too much w shen's.

Good news for all might be that with how precious the current sprites are don't think they could afford to cut any out and may do something creative storyline-wise to keep everyone or just go dream match.

One thing I wonder about is system in the next iteration. IMO XIII's system is damn near perfect, wonder if they would go ruining that just for the sake of change.

Damn snkp should really consider cell shading or 3d, cause i dont want to wait 5 years for a good game.

I can see where you're coming from with not wanting to wait 5 years before a KOF sequel, especially after remembering it being a yearly installment. But on the other hand, after living through the SFIV and BB update mayhem, I'd really prefer what they're doing this way.

Maybe it's best if XIV is a dream match, considering they've already got 30+ sprites to work from. Developing more from 03 and XI hopefully wouldn't be that much of a chore since, especially since a lot of the characters seem viable for the next saga - the Dragon Spirit/Hizoku clan saga I think. Lots of characters can tie to that somehow, including Duo Lon, Shen, Oswald, Malin, Shion, etc, so new sprites made in XIV can be used further into the series no problem. If XIV is a dream match, I'd hope that they figure out how to combine or include the best parts of XIII and XI for a great tag/balance gameplay.

Between the listed facts, how much attention the Dream Matches get, and how the next story arc game will change things up a great deal, best to let KOF mature for all the new fans. And lets hope it's no more than 3 years, which XIII will still be viable, and SNK will have at least started on other projects to look forward to.

I don't think SNK is likely to get the license to do a game on an anime, though that would definitely put them with the likes of Namco and Capcom, who have done anime fighting games.

Quite f--king true. Great idea, but much as I like Sannosuke, Aoshi, and Saitoh, the LB cast still wins in regards to which I'd like to see next and updated. Feels like LB as got a lot of RK in it anway:
-Washizusa is pretty much pre-Meiji Saito
-Hibiki is close enough to Kenshin for me
-Shishio is separated into Shinnosuke and Mukuro
-Moriya as got that overall Aoshi feel
-etc

Kenshin = Moriya.

Shishio = Mukuro.
Sojirou = Hibiki.
Aoshi = Kagami.
Misao = Akari.
Jin-e = Zantetsu.

Raijuta = Musashi.

There's probably more (like, LB's Okina MAY have been influenced by Kenshin's Okina, and LB's Shigen MAY have been influenced by Kenshin's Anji), but these are just the utmost obvious parallels.

Other expies in the game are Kaede (got that Super Saiyan thing going on) and Rekka (Jet Li's take on Wong Fei Hung almost to a freakin' T).

Early in MUGEN's life (back when it was all DOS based) there was a guy who converted Washizuka, Kagami and Hibiki into Saitou, Aoshi and Sojirou respectively. It was ... pretty bad ass. Even used cut-scenes from the show when you finished an opponent off with a super move.

Okay, I think I found my team through a lot of experimentation. Not trying to boost my ego, but I think it's interesting to talk about our team formation and why.

1st: Clark. Just an overall great character. Only downfall is that on 1st he might have a tough time with fireball spam but it doesn't take long to build that meter and it all it takes is for him to get in once to really fuck shit up.

2nd: Hwa. Standing D is a good poke. Good AA SRK's. Dragon Tail is obviously not a good AA like Joe's equivalent move but it's a good lock down move if they're on the ground. I like comboing into his Slide into Dragon Tail. And most importantly his Grab supers. They make him scary for sure and I can think of some dirty setups, not as dirty as say Robert or Yuri, but dirty enough ;). He will always be on 2nd because he absolutely needs that meter and DC for big damage.

3rd: Billy. Honestly Billy and Clark's positions are interchangeable depending on matchup. But I just love his rushdown and he has some good defensive options too. I can do at least one of his fancy corner combos (which will probably be known as his BnB corner combo soon enough) but my problem is trying to land it in the first place. I partly blame this on my Hori controller which for some reason makes it really hard to combo off of crB into his Up kicks. Hopefully the new Logitech I ordered will fix this.

Things to do: Learn Clark's Hyper Drive Charge Punch combos into Neo Max. Is Hwa's Neo Max practical? I've tried landing either of his Supers and I input the Neo Max during that time and it never once has come out. How safe is Hwa's Slide into B Dragon Tail? I have to learn Billy's Hyper Drive Combos.

Hwa's neomax from his command grab is seriously great if you can set it up properly, you get 700 free damage, which is a great way to end a round/match.

No offense to Last Blade, I own the Dreamcast version of Last Blade 2 and the arcade version, but Last Blade is technically a bad copy of Rurouni Kenshin. Kenshin should be a counter based character that could be offensive, but would have lots of holes. I'm sure they could make a Kyoto version for a more offensive version. Saito should work off of 2 stances not just the one. Shisho could have a kind of Chin drinking move where he puts on the glove. He also could gain strength while losing life.  A good chunk of the characters would probably use 2 stances or special move power ups. Last Blade 2 did a good job in making something that felt like Rurouni Kenshin but it was a game that was simplified moves wise compared to making a Kenshin game. Not that it was a bad idea. Remember the neo geo had memory issues and with the animation that this game brought compared to KOF it would have been next to impossible to get anything that felt accurate. I was happy with LB2 but would kill for a serious Kenshin game. I'm sick of the crap anime fighting games.

As always, really appreciate the news from your side of the pond a11111357.

Interesting if true, SNK would definitely be taking a new approach to delivering content. I'm guessing the profits they reaped off of the EX characters must be satisfactory.

I wonder if they see it as being more profitable to just character packs for 1-2 years and that be the end of it. OR (conspiracy theory time) they release character packs and when 14 comes out it will include all the characters except Ash/Saiki released so far in an entirely new engine similar to XI and that acts like a Gold Edition, ya' know? Instead of possibly releasing a gold edition of 13 with a sticker on it proclaiming "All DLC characters and stages included!" you get 14 with all DLC characters and new stages.

Google translated this, and from it all i got they were just talking about the netcode patch and the dlc characters they  were talking about kyo and mr karate, i know its google translate but i don't think there's anything about future dlc characters.
I reviewed it again.You are right.He just plays on words in title.

No offense to Last Blade, I own the Dreamcast version of Last Blade 2 and the arcade version, but Last Blade is technically a bad copy of Rurouni Kenshin

I know it's off-topic, but Rurouni Kenshin took alot of inspiration from SNK games too, particuarly Samurai Shodown, which was one of Watsuki's favorites and he mentioned it often in his notes.

On the subject of future DLC, I just want to see a complete Outlaw Team, whether it includes Mary, Yamazaki or Eiji to go with Billy. I'd especially like Eiji because he was the shit in XI and 98UM.

Nice if true. Commence the wishlists.

Me personally: Son of Boss Team with Rock, Adelheide, and son of Goenitz. Or just 96 Boss team.

Failing that then Gato, Oswald and Vanessa.
Just one thing... Give us that guy:
(http://images.wikia.com/villains/images/5/5d/Geese-svc-big.jpg)
GEESE HOWARD it just would be awesome!!! :)

In a logical way, maybe we can expect a Boss/Sub-Boss Team, hmmm... like... Geese :p , Adelheid & Rugal as final Boss...

And why not that 3 dark goblins as: Shroom, Rimelo & Botan.

Other note, would be nice if Mukai, Eiji & Chizuru/Shingo could be in...

I know, prolly too many wishes... lol

well after much "trying" online... i've discovered the new form of "cheating." ...at least on the 360 version, but i imagine it might work on the ps3 as well... what people are doing is putting their headsets next to the television sets to make as much noise as possible through them. it causes the person recieving the noise to have extra lag and drop inputs altogether. i even had one guy turbo-ing his headset on and off to make as much static as possible. because i play without my headset they fight fine while i almost just stand there the whole match. it's pretty horrific. they REALLY need to disable headsets altogether considering the netcode sucks as is...

Been practicing. 3 days off work with a cold. I'm feeling much better now after sleeping for about 15 hours in a day. Been thinking of a back up team and came up with: Billy on 1st, Goro 2nd, and Claw Iori on 3rd. I like Claw Iori but he has real problems with fireball zoners so hopefully on anchor he doesn't have to fight too many of them. Goro is solid but once he has 3 bars he becomes scary as fuck. Billy I just can't drop.

I wish more fighters (I think MK had it correct me if I'm wrong) were not only server based instead of p2p but have servers full of people at various skill levels. Because if someone is at a rank of 16 or 20 it rarely means anything, they could just be another dude picking shoto and running away, spamming fireball, and abusing that half second of lag.

Where you have a newbie server, an intermediate server, and pro server respectively.

Where you have a newbie server, an intermediate server, and pro server respectively.

Fighting games are 1v1.   You can send the gamestate data directly to and from both players.
Whats the point of adding a third party into the middle? (the server).  It just adds more latency.  Peer to Peer is the best system for 1v1 netcode.  (unless there are other issues like tracking disconnections and spectators.)

What you might mean, is having a server for the matchmaking.  Actually most games (including KOF13) use a server for the matchmaking (Sony or MS's, respectively.)   But the functionality offered by Sony/MS for this kind of stuff is really primitive (Ranked/Player/Create, as we've seen in countless games).

So what you're actually asking for is that more advanced functionality be made for the matchmaking, like dividing players into channels and so forth.  In which case I agree with you.  But its not a matter of server-based vs. p2p.

Neo Geo games aren't exactly the most sought-after titles, even though they've been making appearances in Sony's PlayStation Store as of late...

They aren't all forgotten either. Also, I think XIII really help jump-start SNKP's popularity in the video gaming scene. Taking advantage of this might help them win even just some sales.

Quote
...and based on the specs reported by Famicom-Plaza and Kotaku, the device might be easily overshadowed by the more-capable Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita

I dunno. I wouldn't exactly call the 3DS and Vita the most affordable handheld. If SNKP decides to play it safe, selling the device at a much lower price, as well as release some new and memorable games, they could probably win a good number of gamers who are looking for cheap but enjoyable games, games they won't have to work 3 months worth of pay day. Having a cheap alternative handheld might work out for them.

I wanna punch the asshole who wrote that article right in the damn face.

Everytime I read a cnet article, it seems that that's exactly what I want to do. Not long ago, I read a cnet article basically calling the Dreamcast a total waste of parts and not worth the time - completely ignoring how much it changed the way online was integrated into consoles.

Man, I do hate cnet these days. Really hope this SOPA thing bites them in the ass eventually.

Other than the guy saying the Neo Geo MVS wasn't worth a $1... It'd be pretty insane for SNKP to release a handheld at this point. The market is saturated with state of the art smart phones and Nintendo and Sony have the market cornered for handheld gaming consoles. It wouldn't even work as a small time hobby-ist device because the GP2X and Whiz models are out there and can emulate Neo Geo shit.

Just curious if anyone feels this way or not:

I have a philosophy that you should keep combos that are not necessarily basic but ones you absolutely know you can do. My opinion is that if you try those fancy Trial Mode combos when you can do them maybe 5 times out of 10 you run a big risk of dropping it and losing the whole thing.

Basically I ignore fancy combos that don't do that much more damage. I mean if at the most I stand to gain 100-150 more damage by doing a fancy combo that I could easily if I blink the wrong way, then I don't think it's worth it. I won't practice a trial mode combo unless the damage is 200+.

Do you guys feel the same way?

I'd say keep all the viable combo opportunities available to you. I've risked dropping a combo while trying to perform a bigger one; it's half-and-half whether it works out or not. The only combos I'm really wary of is the ones that leave me really open under the wrong circumstances. I'm eventually trying to work on half-performed blocked combos that I see some Japanese players trying. Those always surprise the hell out of me asa they turn it into a grab. A Beni player always put me in the corner with a grab and started his own corner combo from there.

Post by: The Fluke on January 26, 2012, 11:37:31 AM
On the one hand, i wouldn't be afraid to try a combo i'm a bit uncomfortable with, because you've got to practice in actual matches for things to really sink in. On the other hand, if i wanna win i'd probably rather do a combo i'm confident in completing and see if i can do a reset to make up for potential damage loss or something like that.

Basically I ignore fancy combos that don't do that much more damage. I mean if at the most I stand to gain 100-150 more damage by doing a fancy combo that I could easily if I blink the wrong way, then I don't think it's worth it. I won't practice a trial mode combo unless the damage is 200+.

Do you guys feel the same way?

Most trial mode combos aren't practical in a real match anyway.  Whether it's too difficult to execute (especially if there are more damaging and easier combo options) or bad damage to meter usage ratio.  In a tourney match I'd also rather do a combo that, for example, does 400 damage that I can hit 100% of the time than a 530 combo that I can only do 75% of the time.  In casuals though, I try to practice some harder versions.

The update is there, it doesn't appear to make things faster although it does look like it makes connections a fair bit more consistent but this is only after testing it once so I would be very happy to admit I am wrong when that is proved so. Also I could be wrong but Takuma's cr.C seemed marginally faster (but as I said I could be wrong).

What I would like to know is if the patch addresses the controller issue? When I go to tournaments they generally don't allow the wireless ps3 pads so I have to use wired ps2 pads with a converter. But since this game doesn't like controllers without a home button I'm gonna have some real problems if they don't fix it.

If you say so, it's still a problem I would like fixed. My converter works with every other game I tried it on. I'd rather not buy a new one just because of one game.

Just in case, would you care to name a few of the converters that do work? I know of one from etokki.com that is probably the best bet, but they take too long and their shipping rates suck.

Converter you're looking for is called InPin.  It's from South Korea.  They run about 50 or so on ebay.  The converter has a Playstation Home button on it, or you can access it by pressing Start and Select at the same time.

Converter is considered top of the line and has no input delay on top of it.

Yep, that's the converter I'm talking about. It would be a no brainer getting it, but I will only need it for one tournament (Which would be EVO). All the local tournaments in my area have been putting KOF on xbox. I'll just have to wait and see I guess. I'll buy a new converter if I have to though.

Just got done with about 50 matches post-patch in ranked and player; 40 were blue connections, and there's a good chance these would've been laggy matches before. Even though it's Japan, this is a very good improvement from here. I tried asking the players if they got the patch and where they are, but no responses yet. If I can reach Bio or someone else, I can confirm a few things.

Notes on the patch are out:

http://game.snkplaymore.co.jp/official/kof-xiii/info/index.html (http://game.snkplaymore.co.jp/official/kof-xiii/info/index.html)

Rough Translation from Professor:
Ranked Match: You can now set your rooms so that players with low bars or low disconnects can't join in.
Custom Match: Your room and filter settings will be temporarily memorized by the game.
Connection Display: The Antenna's level display has been improved (I guess this means it won't lie like it used to)
Online Connection: The stability of online connection has been overall improved (Note that it says stability, not speed.)
Player Data: Fix(es) have been made to "Player Data" (What exactly the fixes are, it doesn't say.. probably the reset bug)
Replay: Fix(es) have been made to "Replay" (What exactly the fixes are, it doesn't say.. my guess is the delete bug: you deleted files on the 1st page no matter what you did.)
Misc: Some fixes have been made to "Customize", and also to issues caused with certain characters.

Let's hope it will be good

Thanks gazette.

Playing with Solid now - 4 bar matches, essentially flawless.

We're RARELY had 3 bars (maybe once).

It would appear that the netcode got upped although it doesn't specifically say so.
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: Shiranui_ninja on January 31, 2012, 03:19:49 PM
From my experience I consider this patch extremly good (compared with like how it was before patch). Netcode has the same quality, so don't expect have better connection with people you had bad connection. But now Ranked Match can be played decently, and that's the point for me.

Now you can filter your room with "2 and up" or "3 and up" or "only 4". I played with "2 and up" and I was playing around 1 hour and half just against people with 2 or 3 bars, even one of 4. Of course, all of them from my country. Now with patch, those who "had" 2 bars but they were laggy are 1 bar now (ping is calculated better), so they can't enter into your room, the filter totally blocks 1 bar people. This means you can play ranked match without having to fight against 1 bar or laggy 2 bars. Only playable matches with 2 and 3 bars, now. But, unfortunately, this means less people to fight too...

I'm glad to have Player Data fixed too. My player data says that I played 860 times with Mature, but only 180 with Mai... T__T

What's pretty crazy is that that Solid and I just did like 15 matches, the connection was superb. We'd played a number of times in the past and it was always shitty. (the one good time was like a 3 bar)

I notice that the load times have been chopped as well. The time it takes to get to round one is like 2 sec if that.

Loading times reduced? Mmm, I don't think so. It does it matter? If you install the game loading times are pretty fast.

For input delay, i think it dependes on how bad or good is your connection with your rival. As I say before, for now i don't see any improvement on speed or quality of netcode. I tried with two friends of mine who I play often, since they are from my country. 2 and 3 bars, and the matches were good as always, not perfect but playable. I didn't notice improvement with them. But having the chance to play ranked match only with 2 and 3 bars people has no price for me.

I have been told that if you try to enter into a room were it says "2 or up" in player match and you have 1 bar, you can't.

Well I played some sets post-patch for about an hour or so. The game does indeed seem a smoother, and I never got the "sychronizing" box that used to pop up every so often. There was definitely enough input lag to keep me frustrated. However, my internet is pretty terrible, and no amount of patching or netcode re-writing can fix that.

When the results are mixed, it's best to assume the ones with the "better" connections are undergoing a placebo effect, trying to see something that isn't really there.

It was a matchmaking patch, nothing more, nor did they really state that it would be anything more.

After I downloaded the patch I played with someone that was a blue bar and it was horrible, lots of stuttering all over the place. Then I made a room and whenever someone would enter, the snyc pop up would come on the character select screen, then disconnect. This happened to almost everyone I tried to connect with in a 20 minute span.

Then I looked at my router settings and found out that my ps3's IP address changed and was off my portforwarding profile. After I fixed it, the matches began to connect. Weird.

I played with a red connection (from Morroco) and that was obviously horrible.

The yellow connections as far as I remember had a lots of input delay.

The green and blue connections I felt were the most playable but I'm trying to figure out if its just because the colors have switched their meanings. It's like green is yellow, and green is blue?

Many of the blue connections, on my side felt good, I played against Nilcam (was our connection really that horrible?), FameDouglas, and Sparkster. Those felt like a big upgrade from the pre-patch green bars to me. I'm trying to figure out why FameDouglas connection from pre-patch was so HORRIBLE and now, it felt damn good, and he was on a mic. We were both busting out combos and the input lag felt very low. I tried playing with Mikel on a blue connection, but he told someone was playing other games on their connection, so it was hella laggy throughout.

Many of the random blue bar connections (4?) felt good to me, and even though once in a while there was a little lag brief lag spike, the input lag I felt was minimal.

I played with Louis on a green bar connection and honestly it felt a little bit of the same as previous times.

I did notice the loading times from character select to the match online was more brief while the team screen had some lag.

So overall, I'm not sure if I'm seeing things because of the patch but it still feels a little inconsistent. I do think there has been a small improvement, but I hope it just wasn't because I was hosting a majority of the time. I think most definitely your connection speed and ping to the player plays a major role on how playable it will be, but I'm still concerned on how the connection between FameDouglas and I pre-patch was so ASS and now we were both like "wow, this is actually good".

Just remember this is day one, I'm interested to continue testing with others and seeing how it is. I will try some matches of me joining other players rooms instead of just hosting to see the difference.

Same experience for Solid and I, we've always had crazed connections until last night. Will try and do another session w him tonight to see if we can replicate that good blue bar experience again.

GGs Bio. I can't remember the last time I played an online game like that so flawlessly, though the only fighters I've played recently are XIII, 3SOE, and a game of AE once. Hope this means a lot more competition will be available now, everywhere.

^The patch doesn't seem to be doing much for most peeps, but seriously I went from not playing online due to horrendous connections time and time again to this. All the other randoms I did online last night were good too - also a first as I've never had a connection that made it worth it to be online till now period. We'll see what the new day brings...

so it seems patch is on just in the usa ? i plaied last nite (around late afternoon time in usa ) and what i noticed is just less ppl available in player match. connection was still the same shit , i didnt noticed any parameters of search or preferences memorized (of course cause i didnt get the patch yet ) so i think im in the box of ppl without patch and i see less players available for this ?

for those who have the patch : when launching the game u received a message saying there was an upgrade for the game or u have to look for the  patch in the marketplace ?

it should ask you if you want to install the patch before you start playing the game it wouldn't be in the marketplace unless it was some type of dlc im guessing if you haven't got it yet it might not be up in your area

Of late it's been unplayable for me. One sided lag. I had 1/4 second lag on my end. Makes a lot of moves unpunishable. Debating if it's on my end or what.

Post by: Diavle on February 01, 2012, 05:36:56 PM
Seems they payed particular attention to inputs. I noticed this specifically because when a family member starts downloading or watching youtube I instantly notice a substantial input delay kick in. Now, even though the game gets choppy, the inputs are still excepted well. So when this occured in one of my matches I was still able to finish a Kula combo for the win.

Also, a message now pops up telling you when new colors have been unlocked.

Seems bars are calculated differently for sure, one guy I played a few times with before used to have 2 or 3 bars but this time it was 4 bars every time.

And due to the new filter yesterday was the first time I played ranked since a couple matches on day of release and I think I had more "lost connection with opponent" instances occur during those few hours than all my time playing till now. Definitely seem to be intentional quits since its before losses. Against one guy it lost connect before I did the finishing blow. He then rejoins my game again and again it disconnects right before the finishing blow. He kept doing this in hopes of winning I guess.


And the load times have been improved but they were solid before so I don't know if it worth the annoying stutter on the order select screen.

Played for about two hours some thoughts:

Played Eltro and KimKaphan for a bit. Connections felt about the same, but Kim's felt like it lagged a little during the first set, I don't know if it got better or I just adjusted.

New bug, please tell me I'm not the only one it affects: The game will freeze at the 'obtaining player information' screen. It will happen randomly and you have to exit out of everything every time. WTF?

Thoughts about online: It's almost exactly the same but slightly better. The player sync box doesn't appear nearly as often, and luckily it will kick people from your room who don't match your bars. Which is nice because there's been more than a few times where some red ping retard constantly enters my room and trolls.

Mashing backdash on wakeup is a lifesaver. It's scrubby as hell to do, but it's way better option than trying to do a move on wakeup -even it's a good move that should absolutely not be interrupted by normals- and it fails and huge damage is done.

There might be a bug with Hwa's Drunken state. When I was playing Eltro I got drunk (boy I love saying that) and did D SRK when he was in the air, it landed, then I did B Dragon Tail which is an easy cancel and for some reason the B Dragon Tail came out but didn't hit him and I was free as a result.

GGs to Mr Bakaboy this morning!  The connection was good considering how far it is from CT to STL.  It was a four bar connection, and there were small input lags, but overall it was playable.  I doubt it's ggpo though, since I never saw any rollbacks during the games.

From what I heard you can cause lag just by screwing with the microphone. Dunno how true it is.

The lag I see is around 1/10 of a second on a blue bar. For a lot of people it would not be that noticable. It the same lag that ranked matches had that a lot of people were bitching about. I think it will be interesting in the next few days to see the general reaction of the new netplay.

Actually, I think I understand what the patch is doing in match now.

The whole reason we're not getting loading screens or synching pre-round is because now they're putting it within the fight itself (well maybe not the loading screens).

It will feel worse or better depending on tolerance, because unlike before where a single hiccup midmatch will fuck up the input delay for the rest of the round until it can resynch, it will try to resynch in the middle of the same round, pretty much like any other fighter with this type of netcode.
Title: Re: KOF XIII 6th General Thread: Console Released edition
Post by: JennyCage on February 03, 2012, 06:52:22 AM
Netcode seems much improved for me.  Some green bars are now blue and green bars seem to be playing more consistently and smoothly than before.  Input lag with 4 bars is very minimal or non-existent, 3 bars is also very good.  Played one yellow bar, there was a bit of input lag but nothing serious.  Desync problems seemed to have gone away, which was a major problem when I'd try to play people a couple thousand kilometres away.  There seems to be less hiccuping midmatch as well but this could be connection dependant.

Overall I'm very happy with this patch.   :)

What you are describing is the variable lag (or teleport lag) where the refreshing of parameters happens constantly, however the tradeoff is the conditions are always in flux (input, game speed, frames) now the nice thing is instead of taking away from input delay or speed of the match they are taking away frames instead which makes it feel much more stable, but the tradeoff is dropped moves. It's what I see from GGPO. I'm sure it's their own netcode, but they are usuing the tricks GGPO uses.

Nilcam what exactly are you having trouble with lag wise. Since you are one of the main people I see who is having trouble I'm curious what is messing with you. Netspeed? Frame Drops? Rollback? Input delay?

i played a match with zyn abit afterwards and i had one bar and it ran ok-ish for the most part

i would love to do more tests but i had a lot trouble finding anybody online to play with which makes me kinda sad

I played some games with Desmond this morning with much better results. There was a tiny bit of input lag but it was quite playable. I had some trouble with simple links like King's B, dp+B but that's to be expected.

I think they are using rollbacks cause I have yet to play w/o the 2 frame lag. I need to play a guy on my friends list who lives near me. As for your blue bar bad sessions all I can think of is your ping is erratic. I had a similar problem with Xxenace. Are you on cable? Cause a problem I had back in the day was during peak times the netspeed drops drastically cause of the amount of users in general area who get online. I live in the 'burbs now, but in the city it was really bad.

According to pingtest.net, my ping is pretty stable, usually between 20 and 24ms. I did a speed test before and after we played and got a lower speed rating than the last few sessions. I am on cable and I am baffled by the results to say the least. When it's good, it's really good; when it's bad, it's awful.

after patch test:

vs fiol (1300km (JinHua china) from where i live (Shenzhen china)) yellow bar

awful...24+ matches and there was so much lag i just didnt give a damn anymore about what i was doing.
Before the patch there was no lag just a bit slow, nothing to scream about but was actually playable...now? the SHIT!
Sometimes there was 1s lag, sometimes none, but most of the time was something like 3s or 5s lag...to me was unplayable...

they xxxxed up pretty badly for me, kudos to SNK...as we say here in china 越来越差!

Also i wish there was frame data for this game was getting pressured with normal iori claw specials on block didnt know how to deal with them besides roll. :/

PAL if before the patch came out yellow bars were playable here doesnt mean they were perfect BUT at least they were fun to play with ,NOW ,at least with my bro (before """no problem"""), it s a lag fest.
I ve never said china yellow bars = green & blue bars in other regions so dont freak out like that ... god... i just said before the patch i had nice time playing against my bro ,now it's just a nightmare... we ll try to switch the host (yesterday evening was him hosting)...

The game speed was wonky. It couldn't decide wether to go slower or faster. Of late frames are the usual things to drop or they drop the speed down permantly I haven't seen the speed in flux like it was there. For a 3 bar match it was bad.

I am on cable and I am baffled by the results to say the least. When it's good, it's really good; when it's bad, it's awful.

Sorry for late response needed to get near a computer. Although pingtest does look at some of the stuff you need to know the true test is how you ping with a player. I don't know if you have a way to look how you and a player ping out but I always used old snk games on the 360. FFS, SS2, KOf98UM, and (2002UM used to) have it. Most of the time if your lag is not stable it has to do with your ping between players. If you move in game under 20 m/s it's usually good. Example if you are at 100m/s and you move around to 120m/s and below you're fine. However any more movement and the match gets erratic cause it keeps reseting parameters so much.

My ping in Auora got 40m/s and 6m/s jitter, Nixa Missouri I got 56m/s and a 9m/s jitter. Chicago (which is farthest) I got 16m/s and 1m/s jitter. but I bet if I get with another person that jitter is going to be a lot more cause pinging a server is different then pinging another 360 or computer.

like asociale i noticed things r even worst with the patch, playing with the same ppl i was used to play is a little bit different (in a bad way) which is kind a mistery to me.most of the times u have the feeling u r controlling a snorkie in the deep water and even blue bars have a bad delay i dont want to think snkp is so stupid to make a patch just to fix settings and search parameters, something must have been fixed about the netcode too or it is non sense but ... looking how it is now i only can ask myself what the fu*k did they do ?

^ They added input lag to work as a rollback on the patch. From what I have witnessed 4 bars tend to mess with frame dropping but as soon as you get to 3 bars the game speed is messed with. It's supposed to stabilize the connection, but for a game like KOF XIII IMO it's a huge mistake cause this game does not work well with ANY kind of lag. My thought is Playmore broke down and made their version of GGPO without thinking of the downside to it or just thinking if they want it so bad here you go now shut up.

I'm really happy with the patch. The thing I wanted most was the ability to play only 3 and 4-bar ranked matches, in addition to player matches.

I don't know if the Northwest is really getting into KOF or what, but I haven't had any trouble (yet) finding matches. Of course it varies by time of day, but I typically don't have to wait more than a minute or two in practice mode.

Anyway, the 4 bar match I played post-patch was as good as the 4 bar matches I played pre-patch. Not surprising.

Obviously, I don't have to play 1 bar matches ever again (which I'm thrilled about), but I wanted to see how the game handled bad connections now. The 1 bar matches I played (someone invited me to it) felt very different from the pre-patch 1 bar matches I've played. It seemed like the game felt less like it was underwater, and the game seemed to be running more smoothly. However, the input delay was absolutely absurd. My impression was that SNKP tried to mask the bad connection with more input lag, while trying to keep the game's speed consistent.

In my opinion, this is a worse solution than just slowing the game down.

As I said, though, the good news for me is that I can now avoid the truly awful matches. All in all, I'm happy.

Yeah, I'm really satisfied so far as well. Much easier to find 3-4 bar matches now and the experience overall is much better.

Still prefer to play Player matches, barely ever any ragequitting here unlike Ranked.

Yo, we should play some more, I don't quite remember if our matches were very laggy or what not, but I'll add you to my list.

Btw, a friend of mine recently experimented with a little tweak to decrease a bit of the lag in our matches. Before we had green bars, but now we have blue. The matches feel VERY nice now. If anyone is interested in hearing how, I can share. :)

Also, seems Mature is moving up their ranks. She was getting a lot of use in yesterday's tournament, even as anchor. Her EX fireball pretty much completely shuts down fireball games, like that of Saiki. Her links equal tons of damage and she can really lock you down with block strings.

Except for the part where they didn't even try that.  It's not that they didn't know what they were doing in KoF.  It's that most of them didn't know what they were doing in a FG period it seemed.  If they had played like they were playing SF, one, I would've said so and two, depending on who they used the fundamentals would've at least provided me with something.

More like its all that matters in Japan it seems, KOFXIII match vids etc from there pretty much completely dried up after the console release.

Doubt it but wonder if there are any differences from the console version, though as much as I'd like SNK to put new content into XIII at the same time I'd rather they shift their focus onto a new project, XIII is friggin amazing as is (easily my no.1 fighter of all time).

I've been curious about the Robert thing for a long time. He's good, but works best at mid to long range IMO. The mid range attacks can set up the close range, but he always seemed weak up close compared to Takuma, or Ryo. Every time I hear about Robert though, they make him out a all around fighter w/ high priority. I just don't see it.

Every time I hear about Robert though, they make him out a all around fighter w/ high priority. I just don't see it.

I think it's exactly because he's an all-around fighter that he seems to pale in comparison with Takuma or Ryo in close range. When you look at it, Robert has pretty much everything in his arsenal: a fireball, an anti-air, a cross up, a grab...you name it, he probably has it, except more juggling options.

When he corners an opponent, he turns out to have less juggling options without having to sacrifice meter or drive. The biggest difference is that his db_f+K makes him jump backwards, unlike Takuma's version or Ryo's hcb+K. Ryo can also juggle his opponents a few times with his qcf+A while Takuma can prolong his combos further with his zanretsuken into grab. Even Yuri outjuggles Robert with her qcb+P.

Basically, he's like Mario. He's pretty well-rounded, having almost every single trick you can find, but not really the best in all of them.

So I've been finding more green/blue bar matches on ranked instead of player match. I'm glad that I'm actually getting in some good matches, but a little sad that I keep getting my ass handed to me by so man Clark and Kula players...

I think KOFXIII Climax will be released via NesicaXLive, due to SNKP re-releases of KOF'98UM FE and KOF 2002UM for this system.

I wonder if the DLC characters will be in the game.

If so, I don't know how I'm supposed to feel about the fact that the arcade version gets characters we have to pay for in the console version...

(OK, in CS1 console, Platinum The Trinity wasn't released until May/2011, the CS2 rebalance patch in consoles)

Anyway...I find it odd that they had to add an extra name to it when they're only adding the Console Changes.  They could've just said Version 2 since it's on V1.1 right now in Arcades.  Calling it Climax...hmm...very...intriguing.

1. its gonna be the last of anything they are doing for XIII
2.the guy who names games at SNK obviously hasn't got any ass for a while

my gut tells me that the second choice is the right one

I think so too, actually, especially since XIII was released a few months (weeks? days?) before NesicaXLive was released. I remember thinking back then what could have been had they waited for Nesica to come out.

Just watch, the game will be like Continuum Shift II (Console changes and all that, it would be ported to PS Vita and 3DS; plus an update that adds two or three characters, which will hit PS3 and Xbox 360).
