    so...You hated on the game, but it was a bluff, because you secretly wanted it all along?

    sounds like a plot from some teen fan fiction.
    Anyway, you should join the official forums, since it's where 99% of discussions about the game take place.

    I have a membership on the official forums (made one shortly after the Maya trailer to discuss Kan-Ra). If that's where the action is then I suppose I'll venture over there.

    And, no, it wasn't a bluff. Everyone here just took my trolling too seriously as if I was trying to stir up shit when you really should have just blown it off and forgotten about it. It's trolling, live and let live.
    I'm a tryhard, big deal. I don't see why you care.

    The game has grown on me as well. I still think it was pretty shitty at launch, and pretty boring to watch, but after playing at a friend's again post Season 2 it feels likes a real fighting game to me now. I copped an XB1 and a TE2 stick just to play this past month.

    Speaking of Season 2, they said Riptor would be hitting before Xmas, so I'm guessing Dec 22 since that's the last Monday before Xmas. Any word yet on her official reveal trailer?

    I dunno yet, IG stated they would talk a lot more about Riptor in December.
    The month's just 4 days old so I still patient (but curious as well ofc)

    Speaking of Riptor, I really hope that Mick Gordon includes somewhat of a Pan flute in her theme.
    It was so iconic and made her original theme sound more primal to me.

    LOL, microsoft pays to sponsor evo and they let sony take Sf5 as ps4 exclusive....Fucking really? IS it amateur hour in redmond?
  • Diek StiekemDiek Stiekem Team triple terror for MvCi Joined: Posts: 2,620 mod
    It's a probably just a timed exclusive. Besides Capcom has A LOT to prove these days imho. Most of their games haven't been quite steallar the last few years.
    But lets not sidetrack to much and keep this thread on KI.

    Decide to come back here just in time for SFV to get announced. LOL. Looks a lot less boring than SFIV any way. Just too many issues and didn't add much new to the series for me.


    Riptor's coming soon and both games (KI and SFV) should be getting PC ports so that'll allow a lot more people access to those games.

    Ain't nothin, Capcom's ruthless still producin.  Cut em a check or find yoself toothless.  Keep it shill with no confusin.  Niggas say I'm shill...they ain't hard I can prove it YEEEAH

    You don't, he's still exclusive to people who preordered when the game first launched, and they said they have no plans to change this. The next character is linked directly to him so there is much speculation that he's gonna be a more fleshed out realization of what Shadow Jago was supposed to be.

    What got me curious is that once Shadow Jago - the fifth combatant for Season Two - gets released, what's going to happen to his character slot in the Season One section?
  • SkeletrollSkeletroll Banned Joined: Posts: 1,267
    Well they said this character has his own name and has been shown fucking Shadow Jago up, so he'll probably just fill the 5th slot on the bottom and Shadow Jago will remain where he is.

    Hoping ghost girl is the next tease, very curious to see her play style after all excitement they express on the streams when bringing her up.

    They teased the next fighter awhile ago. I posted a blurry picture of him in his skull armour in the Riptor Coming Before Christmas thread.

    Edit: actually I posted him in this thread, a couple of posts above.

    I'm guessing they will keep the same payment model on both platforms. https://store.xbox.com/en-US/Xbox-One/Games/Killer-Instinct/8b4cfd5d-52ff-4ca0-b5e2-112d7fd09830

    I wonder if they will add S3 into the complete edition before or after the season? I don't know how they do that, I don't have an Xbone. Hopefully if they do that they will drop the price a bit.

    They've said time and time again that whatever you buy on xbox one or on pc carries over.
    If I buy 2 seasons on xbox i have 2 seasons on PC.
    If I buy 2 seasons on xbox and the 3rd season on PC then I'll have all 3 seasons on Xbox one and PC as well.

    Wow some of the changes for Season 3 are pretty wild. Overall I think it sounds like a pretty big improvement. However, it is somewhat discouraging being forced to essentially relearn certain characters

    Umm damage nerf on virtually every attack/special and not being able to attack after air scarab is alot already. What more do you think could've been done to Kan-Ra?

    It's just like they said, they made him fair. As soon as I read all the damage nerfs and the "no attack after air scarab" nerf, I was fine. That's taking away a fundamental part of Kan-Ra's strategy. Cinder's changes IIRC make him fair as well. Spinal's new instinct, if you think about it, is the same kind of pressure that Urien's Aegis Reflector or Rashid's V-Trigger puts on an opponent. They have to block and Spinal has to find that opening. It's gonna be annoying, but it's fine either way because all those skulls vanish as soon as you hit him. Glacius isn't super amazing either, just better than what he is now. In the grand scheme of things, nobody is really that outrageous because every character has something that is just as crazy (except Sabrewulf, imo. A dive kick and varying speeds of command run isn't as crazy as other people's stuff).

    As far as I know, everything is the same. It comes out the 29th, and you are required to have Windows 10 because they're selling it through the Windows Store. It's fucking groanworthy that they don't just put it on Steam where it's bound to get the most exposure and money, but whatever.

    The damage nerfs effect the whole cast across the board so he's basically on the same level damage-wise as before. Personally I want scarabs to disappear when he's hit and completely rework the free shadow scarab ender. I hate being forced into a situation where I have no choice but to take damage.

    They said in the stream that his entire game plan is putting his opponent in situations where they are going to be taking damage. The nerfs are exactly what he needed to be fair and retain his same play style. Not to mention, he can't do the scarab only combo anymore, and they tweaked the shadow scarab move in general. Hell, the scarabs are gonna do next to no damage, and they still disappear with the swipe of one attack. He's probably gonna get played less if anything.

    Yeah thats a stupid way to design a fighting game. There should be some way to escape a bad situation. That's one of the things I hate about MK and MvC, and one of the reasons why I enjoy SF.

    Kan-Ra got nerfed in the frame department, too. He has moves that were plus on block that are like -7 now.

    That may not sound like much, but when most fast attacks are 5-6 frames it matters.

    Plus, certain traps have to be completely reworked or dropped altogether.

    I literally just visited the microsoft store for the first time looking for a pre order option...

    Nothing. Can't even find anything on the game from there. Should be on steam, the microsoft store is garbage.

    So, it has been a couple of days now, and I'm curious on how people here are enjoying Season 3 of Killer Instinct so far?

    Me personally, I'm still getting adjusted to all of the changes for the Season 1 and 2 characters (even with my primary and secondary characters Sadira and Glacius). Out of the Season 3 cast, I'm definitely having fun with Arbiter the most, since he has amazing hit-box range on his Energy Sword buttons, sick Plasma Grenade setups that can cost the opponent's health severely, and simply because he's a complete badass. Despite his notable weaknesses (has only one low move, has two reversal moves that either cost meter or self-inflict damage, Type-51 Carbine/Plasma Grenade management etc.), I want to make him my main for Season 3; he's too good to pass up on. Aside from that, I love the Flip Out mechanic, loathe Rash, the new level 4 Ender animation is wonky and the hit/hurt-stop revision is hindering my execution game greatly.

    I'm liking the game. The only thing that's wrong with me is that I'm still playing my characters like they're season 2 characters. I keep neglecting Sabrewulf's divekick, Hisako's Shadow ORZ, etc. But each match is a learning experience. That flipout shit is a really cool reset button. And for the love of god, I need some help learning Kim Wu. The only thing that this game needs to be a better game is online training mode.

    If anyone wants matches, my gamertag is in my sig. I'm available mostly on Saturday evenings and Sundays due to work (40-50 hour/week warehouse job), and I know a couple of pros that can help push everyone to the next level.

    PS: the Level 4 Ender camera is getting a toggle next patch. They basically wanted people to get used to it, but I still hate it.

    I feel that offline training mode has all of the essentials to help improve your game to greater lengths, but I do see what you mean though. Aside from Arbiter, I'm learning Kim Wu as well, so if you need any help, then I'll try my best to provide some useful info. Speaking of which, Infilament has started working on a guide for Kim Wu on ki.infil.net recently (but unfortunately it's still a work-in-progress).

    I like the new shadow effect, to be honest. When I first saw it, I wasn't super keen on it, but it makes sense for a shadow move to be a dark color and not a ripple effect in the background (though that shit was cool)

    The ripple just looked so much cooler to me. The purple gas cloud looks cool for specific moves, but in general the effect just doesn't quite seem to fit.
