It doesn’t. Tried this morning. Online still busted. Still hang for 30+ seconds going to weapons screen in Libra of Soul. Arcade mode still has horrendous load times. :sigh:

Yeah, the patch has made no difference for me, still can’t connect online. Wonder if it’s time to start pestering MS for a refund.

How is character balance for on line more important than fixing on line?! Stupid...

I'm tweeting them everyday so that they know people are angry. I don't seem to be the only one btw... But I fear they might release 2B before doing anything to improve their game.

It's likely a completely different team of engineers doing the gameplay fixes to whoever would be looking specifically at the XBO version problems.

1.02 is just a emergency patch for Voldo nerf... I don't care about unbalanced Voldo, I just want to play online!

A tweet from the main account:

https://twitter.com/soulcalibur/status/1070609265985970176

Just says 'soon' for next patch, and lists:

・Adjustment of the battle gameplay, character moves and improvement of the general polish.
・Improvement of NETWORK functionalities as a whole.
・Correction of CREATION related issues.
・The adjustment of the gameplay and character moves refers to moves of some of the characters.
・We are also looking into the Xbox One version's long loading times.
・The game would get stuck on either the character selection or the stage selection in CASUAL MATCH.

So basically a balance patch, and a bunch of bug fixes.

My gut as a gamedev is that the long loading times is whats actually breaking the online, or is at least a contributing factor. But we shall see.

Good news! Yeah you're right, there might a timeout that is reached because of the long loading times.

I hope they fix the unlock all achievements achievement. So annoyed being at 48/49.

I’m a long way off that, given that I can’t get any games online so there’s a pile of them I can’t get right now :)

They've dated the next update as December 18th on twitter.

The patch notes are mostly character balance stuff (and quite a lot of it), but it does mention 'general network improvements' so who knows?

They also say on twitter there's a smaller interim patch queued to come after that.

Yeah, hoping this will make online at least playable for me.

Patch 1.10 downloaded on my console this morning. Unfortunately, I had no time before work to load the game and see if loading times are faster and if online works.

But loading times of Xbox One versions were included in the patchnotes of this update, so should be better.

They apparently had to pull the 1.10 patch on PC... because it broke the online play.

I’ll go update now and report back how it is :)
