It's my fault I know. Not doing game research has come to bite me in the ass and now I am left with a great fighting game that has the most jacked up online I have ever played. I never played KOF XII but heard it had terrible online play. So when KOF XIII came out I was like, well you think that would be there number one priority this time around...sigh
Like I said I never played KOF XII but this new KOF's online is unforgivable. I only have Capcom fighting games to compare it too and while their online play is not flawless, it might as well be compared to this! Don't bother trying to let the game match you up with another opponent because all I am getting are matches ranked at one or two latency. The game has 1-4 levels of latency the best being four. The game has an option to look for games based on what latency you want which I go for 3 and up but after 25 tries I got one match at lvl 3 latency. It was decent, to bad I find getting these high latency matches more trouble then they are worth.
Let's get one thing straight, I so want to play this game online becuase it seems like a soild and great fighting game.
Serves me right for not doing research on a franchise that I knew had online issues before but for the love of god, if you plan to get the majority of your fight on through online play, steer clear of KOF XIII.
