I would agree that EA would be much worse. Both EA and WB are all about the cash grabs. However WB is way more hands-off with their money makers such as NRS and Rocksteady. WB also gives them all the time they need to make good games. EA loves pushing out titles, yearly if possible. I'd hate to see MK turn into Madden. If nothing else, WB lets their people do their thing.


I would rather them turn it into Madden then having them shut down like Maxis, Pandemic, Westwood etc etc. In fact I would rather EA not buy any of my favourite studios.

They told Maxis to make SIM City always online and so the servers could not cope day one and nobody could play. The game got a bad reputation as a result and flopped afterward. Then EA closed them down even though EA were the ones that made the decison to make it online, Maxis paid the price. I hate EA.

I will try and post an update about every 20-30 fights

First of all I have a wired connection with the best internet I can buy where I live.

It didn't start good at all
First 12 Fights all Desynchronized at the start of the match after waiting 2-3 minutes to find a match
Next 2 I though a punch and froze my opponent could push me a crossed the arena
I'd say that 16 out of the next 18 fights were perfect only issue seems to affect Jacqui she flickers and glitches so bad that she looks like she is teleporting.

It won't let you say "Xbox Record That" or take screen shots when it freezes

First assessment after that start it's getting better

I think they are basing the Beta codes on online wins I'm decent maybe top 25% of those who play the game but I haven't played anybody that isn't Tournament level (nobody is dropping combos AKA Tyler Lansdowning)

I signed up.

But I rarely to never log into my WBID before playing so I'm not sure if the bulk of my playing hours are logged.

So I'm still waiting on an email.

Got my email last night. For the first time ever I can consistently land my combos every time. I know a lot of people have been unhappy with many of the decisions NetherRealm has made with, however I already thought this was the best MK game and with the way online is in Beta, Dear God is it special!

Even in it's beta stage, this online is far superior.

Proof bein that I can actually fight back against a shitty Scorpion. It's also pretty fun fighting against a GOOD Scorpion.

The new netcode is seriously fucking great. I can actually punish shit now! It's so surprising for me that I end up dropping combos because of it lol. Honestly guys, it's amazing. I can't wait for everyone to be able to try it.

If they post codes and it works you're in. They're essentially sending people codes by emails. Someone could forward you their code and it would work.

Yeah, the matchmaking isn't the greatest. Really hope they improve on it in the next patch, it takes me quite awhile to find someone as well.

Oh man oh man, this shit is starting to get me hype. I've been done with this game for months but with all the Tri-borg swag combos and a playable online on the horizon I'm starting to feel the way i felt before the game released. Trying to contain the excitement tho, after 3 misses in a row i don't trust NRS when it comes to online. I'm still just happy they at least acknowledged the problem.

And not trying to knock you redman or anybody else in this thread enjoying the beta, but I hope you guys aren't a tad blinded by hype. Just saying that cuz I know i personally probably would be. Is the beta really like night and day? Like does it feel like offline play or just a bit better than it was?? And does it depend on who you are playing??? I swear I couldn't even reliably uppercut to anti air in this game unless I was on point, nor could I ever convert air to airs into combos but when offline that stuff was second nature.

I've been catching up on some of the tournaments I've missed over the months and its such a tease to see how incredible this game can be at high level. Whereas when I'm online I feel like I never got a chance really to develop my footies or whiff punishing or fuzzy guarding or shit like that because the lag/delay made everything a huge guess. Like i can learn to read my opponents and I can learn a character's combo's but I've always had this huge gaping hole in my game play. So yeah I really hope it is as great as it sounds. I don't expect perfection or anything and punishing all those damn yolo slides/spins/crazy unsafe bullshit would feel awesome at the least.

You can definitely punish stuff better. If it's a match with low ping, it honestly does feel close to offline. In matches with higher ping, it is a lot harder to react to stuff because of the rollback. I have been way more successful with AA's though, in a match with low ping, I was able to AA the guy like 6 times in a row using Jax's s1. Input delay is also one of the best improvements, there is practically none in a good quality match.

My internet hasn't been the greatest as of late so I have had some pretty bad matches, and i'm upgrading early next month to fiber optics, but as of now it still feels pretty damn good. It's not perfect and it can definitely be improved, but it is much much better than the current online.

Got my beta code this evening and it's downloading now. I assume they are letting pretty much anyone in who qualified. Mileena main so it will be nice to get to mess around with her and see what works...i'm so used to having to play her differently online since a lot of her better combos were difficult to pull off with lag/connection blips.

On a scale of 1 to Killer Instinct, it's definitely no Killer Instinct. On higher ping matchups the issues are still pretty noticeable, but different than they were before. The new system does NOT feel like MK9 or Injustice. Rollback netcode is s whole different animal but now that it is what's driving it, things will only get better as NRS refines it. They've only been working on this setup for a handful of months now, and a huge chunk of that time was likely spent rebuilding how the game systems and inputs are processed. Now that that's done they can focus on refining and polishing.

Right now, it feels much better than it did. Is it awesome? No. But then again it shouldn't be. Awesome will come later, and by the time Injustice 2 comes around NRS will likely have a damn fine online system on their hands.

This goes for myself as well, but to those who get into the beta make sure you answer that post match questionnaire honestly and thoughtfully. I know Ive already been guilty of just mashing thru to get to the rematch, and that's the worst thing we can do right now.
