Not a massive update but the feedback from the community so far is very good.

Still a few bugs here and there but the hit registration and party systems appear to be fixed meaning the game is finally fucking playable.

These updates make the game look unfinished dude but good news none the less

(DayC) #4

It is unfinished, it’s half a game. People should be aware that they’re fixing it though so their purchases arn’t considered completely dead!

(Dean) #5

These get posted in every update. It’s just generic bullshit words that mean nothing since they never even explain what they did.

(DayC) #6

Have you logged on and tried the patch?

(Gavin Rainey) #7

haha dont be silly


(Gavin Rainey) #9

Warlord, always the fountain of all knowledge.

I don’t own the game, but every patch they essentially put “Match making - we made it better”. This means nothing, they haven’t explained how they have improved it, what bugs they have fixed, the possible outcomes.

Its a statement that provided it gets one extra game being matched up better than before is correct. It’s a bit of a cop out statement like how ISPs sell Internet at “up to X speed”. Patch notes should explain what changed or there is no purpose for it. Anyone can say something is better.

Its not just 343 that do it, but shit patch notes are a pet hate of mine. It’s almost like developers don’t believe their fan base has the intelligence to know what’s going off.

Have you ever read the Super Smash Bros. 4 updates? “We balanced some characters.” ok ty for letting us know who’s viable now

(Matt) #13

League of Legends patches;

This champion is OP now

This champion sucks

insert removal of something everyone loves

insert something no-one gives a shit about

blah blah creative design blah blah still not changing something that’s been broken since s1.

(Gavin Rainey) #14

You can see from this post you know nothing about fighting games

(Nick) #15

Ok, mate. So if Nintendo tells me “we’ve changed some characters” I should instantly know that, for example, Shulk’s base damage on his moves have been upped by 1 and 2 (and is therefore actually viable because his damage can now keep up with high tier characters)? Or that Marth’s tipper hitbox is made slightly smaller?

(Gavin Rainey) #16

You would know viability is irrelevant in fighting games and people who go on about tier lists and viability chat pure beans

@Bagelzend Does appear to be the case for a “larger than i’d like” chunk of players. Who’s Warlord though? Matches still call game over at random intervals and some people not even being prompted for an update amongst other things.

@Noodle I understand what you mean and 343i have been doing it since launch, a significant amount of players have found the patch has made their experience more bearable than before though. As stated above however i’ve seen plenty of comments claiming the patch has done fuck all to help their game.

@Matt haha! Every patch Rito manages to not hit the middle ground with champ updates.

@NickV @Easy I have no idea what you two are chatting about now but this sounds like it should be in a different thread.

(Dean) #18

Yeah Gav, take your button mashing bullshit elsewhere.


brb, calling the guy I’ve sold my xbox to and to tell em I want it back

too bad you can’t put gifs in the spoiler tags =/
