So many people defend this poorly coded game it makes me wonder if the capcops pay you morons. My pc 3.6ghz overclocked q6600, 8 gig ddr2, gtx 570, verizon fios internet, i download anything I want at 3.5 megs a second. mp3 in 1 second. shit is dumb fast. Day 1 online was perfect. arcade perfect. I was literally the happiest man alive. The closest arcade to me shut down, so online is my best option at the moment. A few days into pc version, and the game is unplayable, i tried putting all settings to low, didnt make a difference, so I max that shit out now cuz fuck it its the other guy im playing - lame p2p game, shoulda been server based.
long story short I started playing ladder competitively. Went from 2200 pp to 1250, lost every match in a row. I’ll body some idiot, then they turn a torrent on, now I can’t hit a link for shit and I get bodied. P.S. I play as seth. 1 mistake = 50%. One goken back throw into ultra = 50%. Zangief mashing on ultra during a bnb link combo, FOR MOTHER RUSSIA… 50%.
Same day, kept playing, got all my points back. If I am playing someone with a half decent connection it’s a fair fight. Otherwise I get bodied. Vanilla PC was bad but this is worse.
The problem is that all the games mentioned im playing dudes with 4 green bars and A level PC. Can’t get better than that right? Then how come some people crawl, some people are fine, but 99% of games are vs ass connections. I get scrubbed out by 100pp mashers because my character refuses to acknowledge my input command telling him to block, so I sit there and get fucking freed. Then I play 3k pp players with a semi-average connection and free them. Shit is frustrating so I quit until capcom fixes this (not holding my breath, back to starcraft 2). But all these people are 4 green bars and A rank PC. Outstanding job capcom.
p.s. you idiots defending this atrocious netcode need to get a real job, buy a real computer, and then feel as cheated as the rest of us. I connect to CS servers with a 2 ms ping. I run crysis maxed out. My friend is an enthusiast. 3d computer setup, OC’d i7 gtx 580 sli the fucking works… same problem.
