Skullgirls online dead currently? Or is it just me?

YamatsuYamatsu when will you learn?Joined: Posts: 53
I played Skullgirls earlier on and tried to play some online matches. However I couldn't seem to find anyone in ranked Europe/West Coast America. The unranked rooms were empty also, for every region except for one room.
However I do have NAT type 2 right now, so I was thinking it may be a cause of this. But is anyone else seeing a shortage of games in Skullgirls?
Or perhaps everyone is waiting for the next patch?

EDIT: Also, I'm playing on the PS3 version.

    It can be hard to find matches sometimes using quickplay, but if you post in the PSN matchmaking thread, generally somebody will get back to you fairly quickly for some games :)

    Certain times of day I get a lot of matches other times very few. I live in a major city though.

    Overall, since this is an indie game its sales can't compare to other games and so you won't really be able to get matches with as much success as you can with something like SF4
    It's nice to meet you, too.

    Haha, I'm a bit scared to challenge anyone on SRK until I get a fightstick and get used to it (really hoping I can pick up that Qanba eLive pro RF before they run out).
    Even though Skullgirls is much more forgiving for pad players than Street Fighter, right now I wouldn't go challenging anyone ;)

    What are you talking about, man? The controller doesn't make the player, experience and willingness to practice does. I only use a pad, and I'm pretty damn decent. I haven't been able to capture instances of my ability quite yet, but there are a handful of members here who could tell you (scrub saibot and evilweevle off the top of my head). Everyone else is either on another system, had one or two bad matchups with me, or is named 'ataconzi'.

    Well, I find Z and double quarter movements to be a real bitch on a D-pad. You can argue that that's not a really amazing reason to dish out €200 on a good quality stick (shipping costs to Ireland for Qanba sticks are immense), but there's only so much I can do on a pad with my gargantuan hands, as well as thumb becoming a bit sore after too much PS3 D-pad use. I'd just rather use a stick.
    Also, since 24Mb broadband is finally available in my area, I'll start to play with some of you guys if/when I get the upgrade. ;D

    I'm pretty sure there isn't a single double quarter movement in Skullgirls, so you should be safe there.

    It's a fine reason to get a stick if you actually want one.
    There really aren't any double QCF motions in this game though and the Z's are really lenient just do

    The D-pad? Is that what everyone uses? Huh. I use the anolog stick (on a 360 pad), and those motions are easy for me. I didn't even know that people had trouble with them. I tried to use the d-pad when I first started (SFA3), but it didn't work out for me, and I found out that the 360 stick worked perfect for me when I started playing SF4.

    But, yeah, you don't need to justify your own purchases with your own money to me, or any other complete stranger. I look forward to playing you, though.

    Actually you don't even need that last forward direction.

    Yes! But it looks like the 360 dpad is pretty awful and HC3P is for PC and PS3 only unless you mod it.

    Well bro, American games aren't really an option right now for me, and that'd be where most people would be playing I'd assume. I did search for unranked lobbies but only one showed out of all regions. I'll have a go at changing my NAT Type to 1 when I get the chance and will see if it makes a big difference.

    If I do a full QCF after the F, there's a rare chance I may have screwed up the timing or my finger position somehow and I end up performing the QCF attack. However if I leave that last F out, this never seems to happen. So I just stick to the shorter version.

    Being in Hawaii, I'm limited to the WC-est of the WC peeps. I still manage to find somebody to play who I haven't friended, but it typically takes between 10 - 20 minutes to find a game. I play Odin Sphere in the downtime or read a book.

    Though on the blue moon there are people who live midwest or further who have red ping and yet the connection is smooth.

    online will be more worthwhile once the patch prevents all the slowdowns that happen online on the xbox. that's the reason i do not play that much anymore.

    i doubt the patch will magically fix everything thats bad about the online to be honest, but i hope it does something

    Its just the slowdowns that happen, the "twitchiness" of ggpo is fine but the slowdown that ruin entire matches even though both players connections(have tested it with a local friend where we were pinging each other and our ping was consistent but the game was experiencing slowdowns despite our good connection

    i can attest to this mans playing ability. we should get some more games in sometime dude its been a while.

    but anyway OP i think the best way to go with this is to search ranked until you get a good match, and then spam that person with private invites, after a few games (you may need to win a few) send them a friend request as well. and yea it has been a little better after evo, hopefully more still after the patch.

    Whenever you're just playing/labbing it up, considering making a posting in the appropriate matchmaking thread. I usually give a window of time I'll be online (Typically an hour 1/2) where I've committed to training mode, but I'll run a set if anyone invites me. I've found it's been really successful in getting me games and I never spend as much time in training as I actually wanted to in the first place, because people know I'm already there, as opposed to some mentalities that just hang onto the thread waiting for someone to game with them.

    I've been off this past week. Finally having a pc that doesn't suck, Steam sales, plus downloading and playing new games has occupied my free time. The next few days should allow for some more SG time, though.

    The upshot of having a better system is, once the pc version comes out, I'll be able to put up higher quality recordings.

    On the east coast and it takes quite awhile to find games at least a few months ago. Coming from work and having to wait a good amount of minutes to find good games(Or post here) was disappointing. Been playing VF5 and getting quick games online. With Persona and DoA5 on the way, my time with Skullgirls is extremely limited.
