I seem to be in pool A610 apparently. As someone that pretty much just entered to support the game how utterly fucked does it look like I am?
DLC is on sale so i bought it, SNk games usually get sales soon so it is worth waiting a little.
Btw, that does the exclamation symbol (!) that some players have when playing online mean?
And.... why do people PM you with stupid messages , even when they win, some people really act as cunts, and considering KOF hasn't got a huge fan base it is a bit sad that the few people you meet online act like this.
The exclamation symbol means they ragequit/disconnect a lot iirc.
And yeah, there are some idiots. I just ignore their messages and never waste time replying.
I guess brackets are finalized for Evo. Could be worse, but I don't think I'll be doing well lol
I'm not sure who's in your pool. I had to fight up to Madkof now. Crealo Mustard might be the guy for me to face in my first match. After that I have to beat very high level players to even get out of pools.
Anyway, good luck in your pools.
Yeah, that was a great set. That link with Geese that Reynald pulled off towards the end was sick.
I'm out 2-2. Lost to Madkof and yukadon(!!). I adapted in the 2nd games to get to their last characters but nerves got me. I literally threw the Match against madkof by the completing the checkmate situation with Beni's climax. At least, I beat his daimon with mine. Oh well.
I managed to get off stream matches if the following with my ass camera.
Last match of koukou vs kyamei
Madkof vs kokoji(?)
Dakou vs gxbridget.
Lius cha beat reynald. Reynald in loser. I have no footage.
M' in loser. Sent by white Ash. White Ash in top 8 winners.
I got koukou vs abao.
Pako knocks Madkof out of tournament.
Quick summary of my KoF experience today
Got a bye
Got OCV'd both games of my first match
Beat a Clark/Robert/Yamazaki
Lost immediately after but not double OCV'd at least
So overall better than expected. If it wasn't for that bye I might've ended on stream too lol
Such a long top 8 but so good. Really wish ET's Clark wrecked people, but oh well. The crowd went hype when he selected him though. Also that end. It was worth sitting there until close to midnight just for that last round.
Overall, I did better in KoF than my other games that day lol. 97th place after going 4-2. Just needed two more wins to make it to top 48 and out of pools. Had a lot of fun. Playing this much KoF with new people was really nice.
Here's some of all the off stream matches I got for semi final. Warning quality is complete ass.

Also while visuals are better, i feel KOF ain't that bad, only the lighting is way behind
Didn't get Capcom get access to smoethingthing Namco has a patent on in exchange for Gouki? Maybe SNK managed to negotiate access to something they could use a hand with...
KOF confirmed for EVO Japan.
Lighting is the only issue really, they decided to create their own engine from scratch and it's just not up to par yet when it comes to lighting.
The character models and animation are solid.
This is what the models look like with different lighting applied (the models have been copy and pasted from XIV, only the lighting is new):
i wish they had tech support to improve their engine from namco instead of access to characters to be honestDidn't get Capcom get access to smoethingthing Namco has a patent on in exchange for Gouki? Maybe SNK managed to negotiate access to something they could use a hand with...
agree. In fact lighting and somehow the style is what makes also SFV characters stand out vs KOF (exaggerated vs 'plain' or more realistic, as has usually been the case with KOF vs other fighters like SF or FF)
Btw interesting how different the online feels when there are bad connections, KOF slows down which is shit but still able to play somehow, but in SF the chracters teleport, making it unplayable.
Such a pitty the userbase on SF is much higher and it is easy to play online unlike KOF. Maybe if SNK allows crossplay with PC ......

As much as I'm still mediocre at short-hopping on the PS4 d-pad and as much as I'm still way too used to Street Fighter, I am still having a blast fooling around in training mode with KOF. Are there any GAF'ers that play? I'd be down to scrub it out some time, I've never played this game online yet.
So far, I've enjoyed the hell out of Love, Geese, Terry, Athena, and Andy. Gonna try Mature tonight.
