If there’s one thing I hate about Mortal Kombat, it’s being disconnected while I’m in the middle of beating Eddy V’s ass. As I pointed out in my review, MK’s netcode isn’t the greatest… but as expected a solution is in the works! Here is the official statement which can be found on the official MK boards.
“Thank you for supporting Mortal Kombat! Due to the overwhelmingly positive reception to the game, Mortal Kombat has millions of online matches being initiated worldwide every day, and we have run into some unanticipated technical issues. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios are aware of the issues with the online gameplay – specifically with ‘King of the Hill’ and Ranked 1 v. 1 matches – and we want to assure our fans that we are focused on resolving online issues ASAP. We have added a ‘Technical Issues’ section to our forum so please be sure to let us know what issues you are having so we can address those as soon as possible. Users will begin seeing improvements in online play over the course of the next two weeks. In the meantime please note that none of this will impact the single-player or offline multiplayer experience, and we greatly appreciate your patience!”
Thanks to GiantBomb for the heads up.
