Nice results tbh...any word on vids?

People give BB's netcode alot more credit than it deserves...

Regarding Spectator mode, I really don't mind if it's not there, I usually browse the internet until I get my turn when I'm playing with friends.

Same here; and on a positive note, at least spectators won't clock your tactics for when they play you =D

Yamamoto confirmed that there will be no update for the arcade version.

Will probably transition directly into KOF14.

That's what I was hoping, but it's still a fragile possibility.

Hmm no arcade update is kinda big...think arcade owners would be ticked off? I mean, I don't want SNK to jeopardize their relationship with arcades.

No spectator mode is a real bummer, I guess it's to keep the online as smooth as possible...still a real shame though. Offline is where it's at anyway.

When is the XIII tourney being streamed? (assuming it is)

Do you guys know if the Russian stage from XII is back? I'll miss it if it ain't =(

I noticed they added the command grab hit effect to Vice's splash

You know what, don't worry, I should really keep my mouth shut when it comes to things like these, it doesn't even help anyway.

so you dont trust who is basically the head of the kof community in japan because of

1. the characters he uses (that YOU see)

im sure he knows a hell of a lot more about snk than you, considering he actually yknow, IS JAPANESE AND LIVES IN JAPAN lol

you also have no idea what its like to be in a competitive environment at a level where you are forced to pick top tiers or lose. or maybe you are and just dont realize high do you place in big tournaments for any game?

and the stuff about liking the characters is just lol....haha. well anyway thanks for your post it was really funny

How about you actually explain why you agree with him instead of mocking me? Because it seems to be you didn't understand what I said nor even try to see my point, when you very well may understand, and if so I'd like to hear and be shown what's what.

All you've done is simplify my post, removed the context, explanations etc, in an attempt to make it seem like what I've said is silly; and made it look like you'd follow Dune unconditionally due to 'who he is'. Do you really agree with him anyway? If so, why?


1) Who said I don't trust him? I said I don't agree with him in this case, and that who he is has little bearing on the CONTEXT of what he is currently talking about. If he was talking about gameplay tactics/strategies, Japanese players and their skill levels etc, then he has a bearing.

However, he is moaning about things he contributes to...

2) You say he's the head of the Japanese scene...then why is it that he's only promoting the same characters everyone else picks? He says it's difficult not to be pessimistic when he has been one of the contributing factors to the bad taste left in everyone's mouths. He puts up video's...of the same darn characters over and over you know how many people are being bored to death? And how many KoF newbies think the game is dead boring? Or how many people think the game has major balance issues?

All the while I tell these guys not to worry, because it's just that all they get to see are the same few characters so it feels that way. And I don't care who Dune uses off screen, because what matters to the promotion of a dying franchise is what is shown on screen...and he's pumping out video's of the same darn thing. I mean, SBO finals sure were great right? But it doesn't matter because it wasn't offscreen I guess =/

Dude complains about Raiden and uses Raiden...and the arguement about 'promoting' Raiden so SNK can realize is moot because everyone uses Raiden and SNK already know lol.

And where was Dune during XII? You know, since he is the head of the scene and all.

3) LOL, I never said I know more about SNK than him! Fanboy rage much? Because that's a typical reply...

4) Really? I have no idea about competitive environments yeah? This is a really bad arguement, because for one, you are assuming things about me. Secondly, you are saying people are forced to pick top tiers while you yourself don't have much knowledge about the other good characters in the game (because hardly anyone uses them). How many a time people ended up beasting with characters which were underused and not considered top tier.

5) You ignored certain other points I made, which were very significant; i.e, SNKP being forced to abandon the great XII engine because of people like Dune; I can't be bothered to re-type what I said about that but you saw it...and chose to ignore it.

Cycle like this:

-KoFXII comes out

-KoF players moan it 'doesn't feel like KoF' (this phrase always made me lol)

-No one decides to play it except some American players and UK players

-SNKP are in a major pickle because of was only unfinished because they actually put effort into the game, yet little to no fans supported them or gave a damn (so if SNKP really don't give a damn about XIII I don't blame them)

-SNKP forced to change almost the entire system, so the stubborn KoF players would actually support them

-XIII comes out and people abuse glitches; infinites; top tiers; rinse the same few characters (even after moaning about XII's small cast); promote the game in the worst way possible; clearly only give a damn about themselves and not KoF

- Said player/s then think they have a right to moan about the game

-SNKP rushed and worked hard to give them what they wanted; yet they threw the game behind their backs when they didn't win SBO

-SNKP rushed to pump out characters they wanted and change the system to their liking; yet they picked few characters, didn't appreciate the effort or that the inconsistencies of the game is due to them forcing SNKP to revamp the whole system AND pump out those high res characters with little time left...

Remember all those loketests SNKP did for the game? How can Dune say they don't give a damn? Remember how they said they'd go bankrupt if they don't sell this game? How can Dune say they don't give a damn? Remember all the promotion they did for the game, and the director standing around during loketests dazed due to lack of sleep? How can Dune say they don't give a damn? Remember how they changed the whole darn system? How can Dune say they don't give a damn? Remember those amazing sprites and backgrounds that cost SNKP an arm and a leg? How can dune say they don't give a damn?

But you would support him wouldn't you, since he is 'Dune' right? You would support him even though the scene may very well die because of his attitude and the similar attitude of others right? =/

6) The AI guys have promoted this game really well. Even if the level is not as high, it's more varied in character choice AND gameplay; and it's much more amusing and fun when you watch their vids. Though of course, because one Japanese guy is salty; pessimism should be spread to try and kill the game...and it's ok, because he's a top player. =/

I'm glad you thought my post was funny, because I saw no composure in yours. Now you know alot more about KoF than I do, and you are alot more respectable...but come on.

@KingQuaka: Yes, the Kings are definitely back!

I don't understand why someone would "bad mouthing" KoF13 if he has an interest to it. Dune or whoever, was he tried to kill the game or what? Not very supportive. Good bye, new players. Good bye, Dune's followers. Good bye, "I"s that follow what the guy said. Good bye, most KoF communities.

Glad I'm not the only one...

K' is fine the way he is. I mean, he's not broken, he's just really good. It's like complaining about Ryu/Ken in the SF games, they're not broken, just really good.

K' is just way too boring to watch.
