How long does it take to get a matchup in this game atm?

Still torn between systems. With SF4 getting an update then it might be worth holding off until all the bugs are ironed out.

XB1 seems to have far better release games though.

Release games don't really mean shit 2 years down the track though.

Also Capcom are obviously doing something SF related with Sony, probably SFIV Ultra for PS4 but who knows....

I've been having some really good games lately, mostly hanging out in Exhibition. With all the problems with the jail system, seems most people are avoiding ranked.

Just a shame that the player pool seems so low, but I suppose with the $700 price tag to get in to the game (console + game + stick), I can't say I'm surprised.

Add me for some late night games, Tophe414.

Also, watch this thread, I'm going to start organising some fortnightly KI casuals soon.

Was keen to see some KI at YSB... next time hopefully.

Feel free to add 'ploot' for KI casuals.  Ranked has improved now, much easier to get a game, but with random DC's putting people into jail, it it splitting the group of decent players.

I know it's been a while since this thread has been updated, but I'm considering investing in a XBONE for KI (and even a mod for my stick if need be). How is the player base right now? Did they keep the game up or is it pretty much dead, even after the new characters and updates?

Heavily considering getting into this game Have been watching matches endlessly for the pass couple of days. Just a few quick questions?

- Is there still a scene (online)? Apparently this game is around 6 months old and 'season 2' is coming out so I'd hope so.

- How is the online? I almost always prefer offline game but I figure that with KI most of my games will probably be online

- My biggest gripe is purchasing a stick. Are the X1 sticks the only ones that can be used? can you mod a 360 stick or are there other alternatives?

Thanks in advance

hey dude,

- Yup theres a scene online, its not quiet as big as it was on release but theres plenty of regulars (15-20 players) and a good 5-10 new players learning the game. Season 2 will bring a lot of people back.

- Online is perfect, i'd say its even better than sf4 net code, online is a great place to practice, hell, the winner of BAM was an online player at his first tournament.

- atm, the madcarz xbone stick is the only official stick that can be used, but razer and hori are both releasing theirs very soon (hori might even be xbone+ps4+360+ps3). I personally use a modded xbone controller inside a tournament edition stick, works very well. If your looking to mod one I believe the melbourne guys will have a moder at their HQ now and then, otherwise you might be able to send one to a moder through the mail.

hope this helps!

Thanks for the response Glassy.

Yeah I really didn't want to dish out the money for a xbone, and new stick if there wasn't that many people to play. Not sure how a modded controller in a stick would work. First if heard of such a thing. Is it pricey?

its basically a pad hack, so you would need:

-an old stick (i had an old TE lying around with a broken pcb, I just gutted all the wiring inside.)

-xbone controller (taking the stick, buttons and cover off and using the board as the new pcb)

-mini usb cable (I also picked up a usb extension cable for some extra length)

theres lots of soldering involved, so its something you can only really do if your confident with it.

So yea, you'd have to weigh up the options and price, it would be about $300~ to pad hack, or you could buy a KI stick and hv it shipped to you (approx $350~)

def a big investment, games worth it  ;D (im pretty biased though)

If it costs that much I'll just buy a stick. No sense in messing up a controller and I've seen a few sticks around the $250 mark.

Thanks again for the info.

*poke* You alive in there?

After thinking about it for over a year, and in preparation for Season 2 I've bought the console and game and am looking for a stick to play the game with. Are there any aside from the TE2 available in Aus yet?

And add iAmCyberwaste if you wanna help me improve in the meantime. :)
