are there any members that can suggest a game to try? having dificulty finding MK players here to play and would like to get some action from this "community" everyone speaks about. i seen how most would play older games that MK, so let me know what those old games are so i can check into them.

I won't speak for everyone, but fighting games have horrible netcode, making them quite frustrating and not terribly fun to play online if you are an offline fighter like many of the people on here who play fighting games.  Your best bet is to try to con people into playing at your house. Offer cheap puzza or something.  If that doesn't work, go to mortalkombatunited.com.  that is the major online community for mk9.  Testyourmight.com is the major offline site.  Good luck.

Sucks you moved to Henryettea, pretty small place

You are only about an hour from Tulsa where they play MK quite a bit, if you're willing to come here for play you will find some friends

I suggest Alien games. Alot of the mk fighters disappeared. We are having a mk9 tournament in okc this weekend.  Rev is a serious mk9 fighter.

i see. thought teh internets would have helped with that but guess not.

I read this as "I thought those who lived in Henryetta might be online, and looking for people as well"

If that's the case - then no, sadly the minority are online in OK - for whatever reason...

...I guess we haven't gotten to the age of enlightenment that "Hey.  I enjoy this.  I should type my interest into a search engine, and see what comes up around me..."

--

However.  With a little footwork, you might be able to rally some locals.

Every city has a grocery store.
Every city has a hang out for younger people...

If OKgamers were to provide you with a generic "Do you play MK - visit OKgamers.com" poster for you to print out - would you use it?  Print out a few, and hit up your local stores asking them to hang it?

its funny you mentioned rev. Even he wouldnt accept the invite to try to play online. But in his defense, the thread wasnt direct in asking people to play. it was implied.

Yea which my next solution is to have an online tournament lol

online tournament? that might do the trick. kinda off subject but have you tried the KOH mode online in MK? I've never got to start a match due to the sucky netcode (i guess) people mention. I always have to reset my PS3 in order to get out of it.

Yeah, sorry man, I've done fighters offline for so long that there is a degree of expectation that has to be met if I'm to play online, and unfortunately there hasn't been a single fighter made so far that has made a netcode for its game that is remotely playable by offline standards =[
: Re: MK in henryetta????
: 23rd_letter_assasin September 30, 2011, 08:47:01 PM
so what is this standard that you speak of?
: Re: MK in henryetta????
: rev October 01, 2011, 01:12:40 AM
Anything more than say 3 frames of lag is a no no

Hey, I use to play this game online all the time and the only way it's passable is on 1v1 matches, if you have more than 2 people in a KOTH match the game is UNPLAYABLE. In 1v1 matches the game is playable with local area comp but I can't stress enough, KOTH mode is a complete lagfest. No matter far or local, KOTH is still unplayable.

1v1 is all HxC would try to do. We are thinking about hosting one on our ladder site free entry paying out psn points and ms points over both consoles at $20 value. Just to help find out where MK9 players are at. What ya think?
