This is purely anecdotal but I've heard that launching without rollback is actually a tactic by some devs - they've internalised the idea that they need some big post-launch update to extend the life of their game and rather than new characters or some other asset-intensive addition, they've determined that a big netcode update can be the thing they use to renew interest in their game.

A dev arriving at this roundabout logic is insanely funny to me. Like it's some weird advertising-centric perspective that heralds No Man's Sky as a potent business model.

I want a wifi filter that will only attempt to match me to a wifi player after X minutes of not finding an Ethernet player that fits the quality filter I already set.

Basically how I already do it but without having to manually reject a few Wifi players before I give up and take the next one.

Wi-fi users suck but honestly for small games I'd rather have them in the community and maybe eventually someone with more patience and tact than I have will educate them on why it's bad.

Wi-fi indicators before committing to a match are a good compromise. Even better would be if the filtering process were automatic instead of having to manually dis/confirm.

Yeah, I will put up with wifi when playing a friend or even a random off a discord if the connection is good, but gently caress playing the matchmaking connection lottery

I love (modern) No Man's Sky and I'm real proud of the dev team for buckling in, shutting up, and fixing their game (and improving! some of the new stuff they added outside of the scope of the original release is crazy) but I fear for what their successful turnaround has done for the industry for the foreseeable future lol

I like ah3 a lot but lets not forget that game was a running joke the same way 'The Pony Game' is now for a solid decade+ in english speaking parts of the world. I really don't see a game like this getting a sudden huge upswing in players like +R did even if it did suddenly have rollback netcode because a lot of people still wring their hands over a game with anime schoolgirls that doesn't also have Cool Manly Guys in it (like skullgirls now does). I can understand team arcana focusing more on people who would actually play their game (japanese arcades) then doing a favor for the 10 western arcana heart players when they can't even finish the dlc characters.

if they were focusing on japanese arcades why is there no hard release date for the arcade port of xtend

and why did the director of AH3 go on twitter to poll western fans what they want in a new arcana heart (rollback, age up characters, NO BOYS)

Thereís an arcana that just gives her long stretches of full super armor. A flying Zangeif that can just take all of your hits and not give a poo poo.

I only played the game once, I think I liked the main characters and Scharlacrotch

the hosed up thing is the phrasing 'eternally 15 at heart' means shes an adult, thats a joke that some female entertainers do as they get older. like in idolmaster theres a girl who jokes about being eternally 17 and the whole gag is shes actually 27.

I played Mei Fang in the first one for bit but then she got changed to links only in 3. I played just enough in an arcade to like Elsa's bottle pressure on wakeup though.

I sure do want to four strike those mofos and their kickstarter scam.

It's not that they never bothered with rollback or GGPO (even though they got the stretch goal for that), but that they completely abandoned the PC game to focus entirely on arcade-only revisions. And supposedly (I wouldn't know) the game continues to be poo poo even there.

How do people deal with having to use items in MK11 towers while using a fight stick?

Oh poo poo, I never thought of that.

My stick (and I'd assume several others) have a switch that lets you toggle between the D-Pad, and the two analog sticks, but doing that in the middle of a fight is not really viable. I guess that's another reason why it's better to play MK11 with a pad.

That said, one of the things I learned when looking up videos on MK11 grinding was that having a stick with turbo worked well for grinding towers if you enable AI fighters (since, unless it's changed, you need to hit confirm at the end of every match).

Are there any tips/tricks for grinding coins and other currencies for MK11? The videos I watched were from Maximilian Dood, but they were back from 2019, so I don't know if the info is still relevant. His strategy was to take Noob Saibot, set the AI to all combos and rushdown, and then let the AI try and tackle the towers.
