    I've only played a few matches online, and while it's not as bad as 12 was (i can actually pull off special moves and it isn't so slow that I can counts the frames per second), it still lags way more than any other fighter I've played online.

    Fixing connection issues and lag is always important in any fighting game

    It isn't actually going to improve the online play, just make the readings of connections more accurate. Which is irrelevant, because even the best connections I've had in XIII have been unplayable.

    kof13 is dead. kof is dead in general. just give up snk you just can't manage to make a lag free game.

    i played a few matches online on this was like playing underwater, 0 bar connections on bbcs are like 347347387434v better than this lagfest on 2/3 or even 4bars...

    huge dissapointment.

    You know it's not just the games fault that you have a bad connection...I have yet to play a single fighting game that had perfect connection and I doubt that such a thing will ever exist. If lag is the only complaint, I really don't see the problem. Sucks that it's dead though, hopefully the patch will revitalize some interest.
    You seem a little furious...

    er thats my internet speed 18mbps+

    so my internet is fine, it lags.
    2bar matches are unplayable for combos. 3 is hit or miss.


    I actually have REALLY good internet speed.

    and no other fighting games lag like this.

    Well then you are lucky to only have one that lags. And I should've worded that differently, what I meant was a bad connection when it comes to who you hook up with. For example if I hook up with somebody overseas it's bound to be a nightmare. Then again, no game is perfect though I'm not about to try defending a game I haven't played yet to any extreme I'll just have to take your word for it.

    and this blazblue:CS on a one bar connection, runs very smooth.

    every fighting game should use ASW's netcode in my opinion.

    but kof is very laggy, it seems to pick up near the end of each round but thats not good enough.

    meaning i can only do the combos i practice offline as it's impossible online :(

    I've noticed that almost every SNK game has rubbish online like neo geo coliseum, metal slug 3 etc :(

    Looking forward to playing those then...facepalm. Just from the ones on my card, I've never had consistency. If the original BlazBlue has connection that good as well, I might just pop that in now considering it's on my shelf.

    The combo problem is a shame though, I know the feeling from casually playing both DOA as well as Tekken. People who can do it really do amaze me, though if they play the game enough with the lag they most likely practice there rather than the offline practice mode. Half the reason I only play locally the majority of the time, though that means a very limited supply of opponents.

    ahhh calamity trigger? I use to love that game, but they really changed things up with the free ver 1.3 (cs2) update :) everyone plays differently and they updated challenge mode for everyone too, I recommend getting bbcs:ex when it comes out feb )usa/uk) :D

    and it's all changing again with cs:ex and i'm pretty sure it will get free patches during the year :D

    apparently the netcode is going to be even better than the last two games.

    offline, i'll only get to play my lil brother or people that come over who are terrible and are not big into fighter s :(

    so it's easy wins/unfun :(

    i'd say kof is like a mix between sf and blazblue, but its more rushdown than sf, and if your good then you got to combo, but the combos are just loops/cancels, so they look very samey on kof D;

    but there hard to pull off :P
