I've been kinda shying away from MK online up until now, simply because I wasn't good enough with any character to bother going online and getting my rear end handed to me. But after completely thrashing come CPU opponents I went online, played the same guy twice, one win one loss. No complaints there.
But the lag was RIDICULOUS. Like there would be as much as a 4/5 second window between my imputs and Kitana's reactions. I know that lag is to be expected in any online game, but that level of lag makes the game (Especially a fighting game where timing is everything) practically unplayable. Did I just connect to a guy with bad connection, or is the lag truly that bad across the game?
