    Making manuals unbreakable completely destroys the meta of the game, everything was designed to be breakable for a reason.

    uhhh, you can break manuals... just has a really strict timing.. you basically have to know EXACTLY how the character and opponent play.

    I'm pretty sure Swedish Chef was borging about if they were to make them unbreakable, as someone up above suggested (which is crazy IMO, because the timing on manuals is not strict enough to support that)

    He basically said what you said.

    Rik just needs to hurry up and get better at the game. I'll be on for a good bit of the day if anyone wants to play. Need to practice manuals any way.

    So the Cronus max had a bad showing at DTN this weekending during Marvels top 16. ) 0% chance of it being tournament legal from now on, so now guess i need to get a KI stick until Madcats (or someone) make a 6 button pad.. I was just beginning to really enjoy this thing.

    It's been bricking consoles. It's burning out USB ports.

    I'd almost be more inclined to believe that the consoles are just pieces of shit. :lol: Mine reboots randomly and the disc drive has never worked since day one. It's anecdotal and heavily coincidental evidence for sure, but pretty much the only time mine works properly is when I have the CronusMax plugged in and am playing KI with my TE1. :rofl:

    But yeah, if it turns out that it's true about the devices causing issues with the XB1, that's extremely unfortunate. I know it's likely to be banned from majors due to the macro and turbo functionality, but it's pretty good for home use for those of us that weren't fortunate enough to get on the (seemingly extremely) short list of people able to pick up a TE2. Not to mention those of us that don't want to shell out another $200 for another stick. I actually bought an extra pad to padhack into one of my custom sticks, but ended up just using the Cronus to save myself some time and the destruction of another pad.

    Someone told me that was the old Cronus, and not the max... Was the max burning consoles?

    I'm asking for personal info.

    While on stream a player was complaining that his opponents Cronus was lagging his inputs. They had to stop for like 5 minutes until he got a substitute converter. Shortly after that ( on stream chat i think) Jbailey banned it for CEO. It had been rumored before this that it can cause some input lag issues for other player... It wasn't on Xbone so i dunno if it was regular Cronus or Cronus Max, the owner of the max always makes a point that they are totally different but TO's and people wont give a shit. Not sure if they ever did.

    Read through that and still saw nothing but hearsay that started from one dude talking about twitter blow ups but posted no links. Not saying its BS but like religion some proof would be nice. It could just be a coincidence that he posted that 22 hours ago, but id figure we would of heard of this happening more within the past 7 weeks. Either way.... this thing isn't going to do me any good in competition, wasted $60

    @onyx, I'm pretty sure it's done for the CronusMax at tourneys. I've heard too much stuff already for it to not be true.

    According to the FB chat for SCR the Cronus in question was borrowed from someone playing KI with it, meaning it had to be the new one.

    I agree that hard testing is needed, but the port breaking thing is kind of a huge deal. Note that there have been NO reports of problems on the XBone, purely 360 IIRC.

    I don't like the thing, but don't really care if it's banned. But the fact is if you want it unbanned the burden of proof is on you. Contact the cronus team, get the 'affected' systems from focus fire and whoever else, and do your due diligence. There are too many reports for the TOs to not take seriously.

    Personally, since it has no problem reports on xbone an exception could be made for that system alone. 360/PS3 is out though.

    Ah...well if it's simply a last gen system problem then maybe that's not too bad. Long as there's no Xbox One reports I guess it may still have a chance. Not sounding good regardless though.

    The burden of proof won't be on anyone after a while.

    I believe Markman bought a few himself and is going to do some rigorous testing.

    That snippet of Spinal's theme sounds real good. God damn, this music!

    Sounds like it has a bit of Cinder flavour, and makes me wonder how that theme will turn out. When's Tusk doe? DAAHHH!

    I like all of the music in the game except I really can't stand Sadira's stage because of the music. Her's is the only one I don't like.
  • DevilJin 01DevilJin 01 Get some shill in yo system Joined: Posts: 56,857 mod
    Yeah although Sadira's is good, its definitely the least memorable for me. Its just a lot of that real heavy death sounding metal stuff that I don't really listen too much. I like more jazz or stuff like red hot chili peppers do. The slower/neutral part of the song with the asian instruments is pretty cool tho.

    Glacius theme is my favorite with Thunder's a close second.

  • purbeastpurbeast Joined: Posts: 4,776
    Overall I like Thunder's stage the best, with Orchid or Jago's tied for the next, then Glacius, Sabre, and Sadira in that order.

    I like Thunder's background the best for sure, and his music is one of my fav too.

    Spinal's song is going to be hype too, as is his stage. The stage looks sick in the Prima Fan Book.
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Joined: Posts: 0
    Sadiras the best while I actually think thunders is the worst.

    Jago and glacius are exceptional too.

    I like Jago, Thunder, Glacius and Orchid's music.

    Sadira's isn't really my thing but KI was always known for it's wide range of music in terms of genres.
    Sabrewulf's is a bit of a let down for me in KI3, it's too much "lost in madness/despair" kinda tune.
    Although that fits his story, I liked his KI & KI2 music better

    Let them bring on Spinal this Thursday!

    I love all the character music in the game. Each piece of music is absolutely perfect for their character, especially during fights. The evolution and progression of the music from start to finish is amazing.

    Good to hear some stuff on Spinal.

    Music? For me. Sabre"Classy"Wulf's Theme is at the top for me. SO MUCH EMOTION! Such...PASSION!

    Funny enough, I like the type of music of Sadira's stage but like...it is totally the least memorable for me. That Spinal one is sounding GOOOOOOOOOD though.

    Theme wise Jago is my favorite followed closely by thunder.

    Also, Devils landing is literally the greatest stage in fighting game history.

    Yeah Thunder's stage is my favorite in the game easily and up there with the best in fighting games ever. That view and the rain just makes every fight so epic.

    Anyone got a direct link to Spinal theme? I've only heard the remix of his old theme on Mick's Vine.
