    Any bets on when we'll see the PC version of that patch? I'm taking next month, any suckers/optimists want to take this month?

    Pretty sure it's going to hit whenever Tanya drops. That's what I read from a tweet by HVS, anyway.

    Klassic Reptile? Like, green ninja human Reptile? Fuck me, learning reptile now

    Nah. Sadly he seems to be just lizardman Reptile in his MK1 Ninja clothes.

    The new Kitana move is not an overhead but it is a low that can be canceled into specials. This is good news.

    But when did people online actually get good? I think I went 1 a d 25 in rooms last night, the 1 being someone who complained about how much I used throws. You can guess what I did as soon as he said that.

    Can some one explain what cancels are and how they are benificial?

    Or is it something the requires a lot of background knowledge?

    I got nothing for you now. Try again later.

    Cancel (usually) means to use a special move immediately after a normal move such that the recovery frames (the part of the move where your limbs retract and you are no longer in a hitting state but a hittable one) do not happen and the startup frames of the special move happen instead.

    If you press 214 with Scorpion and immediately input a teleport after the 214, the recovery frames of the high kick at the end of that string doesn't happen and instead you teleport.

    Trying to go as layman as possible, apologies if this is too simple, I'm not trying to talk down to anyone

    Normally a move has to completely finish it's animation before you can do anything else. So you do a kick, then a fireball for example. The entire kick animation plays, then the fireball animation starts, and there's this big chunk of space in between them where the kick has stopped being active but the fireball hasn't started yet. The opponent can block during this hole. So even if the kick hit them, they can block the fireball point blank and you're probably in trouble.

    Cancelling means the kick animation doesn't have to finish. The kick hits, then those dead recovery frames where you're pulling your foot back never happen, you go instantly into the fireball animation. Its beneficial because it doesn't create a hole where they can block. The fireball will hit them while they're still being hit by the kick, so it's a combo. You turned the small damage from your kick into larger damage from the kick + the fireball.

    I've played a bunch of basically lagless matches on PS4, and a couple not very good ones. It is miles ahead of PC, at any rate.

    i've heard the opposite.

    many players i've seen (justin, ultradavid, drew grimey, honzo, etc) have said that the netplay experience on the PS4 is the worst one right now.

    I should try it on X1. It was kind of iffy even after the patch, but I've heard there have been a few more improvements on that front.

    And it should be over the release day jitters by now.

    I refuse to believe that either the PS4 or Xbone could have worse netplay than the PC. Maybe the Xbone handles it better than the PS4, but my brain cannot accept the concept of "worse than the PC version." Inconceivable.

    I can't speak for the XB1 experience as I don't own one. Online is much much better on PS4 than PC.

    But it is sort of like a grocery store cake versus a cake that someone took a shit in.

    It's fine as a counterpick to heavy zoning but doesn't have the big easy damage of slasher

    Apologies if this is something that's common knowledge, but I just played a little online with the faction wars stuff last night (XB1), and the tower and boss that, guess everyone in the faction kind of whittles away at are red and unusable. Is the feature off for the time being, do I have to accomplish something to open them, broken?

    i thought the faction bosses were just time based to start and lasted until someone finished it off, but i could be wrong
