Thinking of picking this up, is it really worth it?


#1

Hi there,

I’m thinking of picking up MK9 for the first time. My question lies with the current metagame, i know none of it, will i be outclassed for a few months or can I jump in and start improving right away?


#2

There is no huge barrier. Obviously you won’t be winning tournaments week 1 but it is one of the easier games to get into.


#3

Thanks for replying, i’ll head out and buy it and start with my old favorite Stryker.


#4

This is a really fun game and has a low entry barrier. Playing online, I recommend doing unranked player matches instead of playing in the lobbies until your skills improve.


#5

Shoot higher. Pun intended :wink:


#6

is jax viable?


#7

yes, Jax is very very good.


#8

Alright, I’ll be picking it up tonight. Everyone in my house is telling me not to buy it but I miss some of the gore from fighting games haha.


#9

Bit late to the party?


#10

A little bit, but I’ve been playing cvs2 and ST and marvel 3 for the past 9 months, this sort of became neglected by accident.


#11

If you given any amount of time to MvC3 you can give time to just about anything.


#12

So, is the netcode in this game as bad as people claim ? Did NetherRealm fix it ?


#13

I got into this game late, but I haven’t had any problem with the netcode. A few games get dropped on occasion, but there’s very little slowdown. I’d be happy if other fighting games matched the online performance of this game.


#14

it was terrible at launch but now its just bad to decent depending on connection.

this is the general consensus of the MK9 community as I dont play online myself.


#15

is it too late to buy this? should i just wait for the next mk?


#16

of course its not to late! Also, check this out, especially if you have play on PS3: http://testyourmight.com/threads/psn-introduces-ultimate-editions-featuring-mk9-w-dlc-skins.17583/

I just ordered komplete edition, it’s only 30€ (got totaly tired to SFxT)! Hopefuly europe online is still alive. Can’t wait :slight_smile:

I think it’s worth the buy. I’ve had it since launch. The online was pretty laggy at first, but it seems to have improved over time. I haven’t had any problems since then that didn’t have to do with my own shitty connection, or the other player’s.

I don’t know which system you play, but if you ever want to go a few rounds on PS3 my tag is “iHeritik”. I’ll be home around 6 hours from now, so just let me know if you want a sparring partner or something.
