I only play private matches with a couple of friends that I know irl. So far lag hasn't been a problem, but what's killing us is how easy it is to fall out of the room by hitting B accidently. Everywhere in single player it hassles you with an "are you
sure?" YES I'M SURE I WANT TO LEAVE THE KRYPT!!!! No such warning in multiplayer though.
It's been getting a lot better for me. Two days ago the servers finally were available for me. While I have still had a few laggy matches it seems like it's getting better. I've been playing in KOTH rooms for over two hours without getting D/C or freezing.
Maybe I'm just getting lucky. Who knows.
Its terrible for me I keep getting my quantum singularity handed to me 8( perhaps it has something to do with the fact this is the first mortal kombat game I have ever bought, and all those mean people in the lobby keep picking fights with me the noob lol.
The online play has actually become steadily worse for me. At first it wasn't too bad, but then last night, I couldn't stay in a match/KOTH lobby for more than 6 seconds (literally, I counted) without losing connection to the servers. Why they ever used
Gamespy servers is beyond me. And when I finally get into a lag free match, I still get terrible input lag (thanks NRS for the awful netcode).
