Killer Instinct Out of Sync?
A one off or recurring problem?
by Arthur Kotsopoulos, Editor in Chief
If this is real, then it is absolutely insane and Double Helix or Microsoft need to speak up, as to what the hell is going on. Calvin Morrow recently uploaded a video on Youtube which showcases the same battle between two different character, which for the majority of the match appears out of sync.
If you watch the video then you’ll see the same moves being registered but happening at the different times.
Over at NeoGAF if you frequent you can check out this thread, and read other users thoughts on this. Some say that the game pits you against AI when the game fall out of sync hence why it is such a smooth experience.
I personally haven’t had the chance to test out Killer Instinct online as of yet and I highly doubt the game would actually throw you against AI whilst it tries to sync, but then again weirder stuff has happened before.
I say it is best to share this around to see if this is a one off glitch in the net-code or an actual recurring problem.
If however it is a problem with the game or the net-coding what does that say about Microsoft’s cloud technology which is said to drastically reduce waiting periods in finding online matches or even enhancing game experiences?
For the moment we can speculate all we want with the given information, but I’ll hold my breath to see if any official announcement or acknowledgement is made.
