If you have at any time performed a fighting activity, you have no question listened to a laundry checklist of excuses for why a person misplaced. But at Combo Breaker 2017 in Illinois now, the globe got a new just one: the PlayStation 4 is outputting at the ‘wrong’ resolution.
KoDee, a Kazuya player who had just been on the improper conclusion of a great round towards Tanukana’s Xiaoyu, was fast to strike the PlayStation guide button and verify the resolution, to the group, commentators’ and his opponent’s surprise.
After switching the resolution and going on to the upcoming activity, the commentators elaborated. Some pros believe that that the activity performs improved when performed at 720p alternatively than 900 or 1080p, and although it is continue to unproven to be the situation in Tekken 7, KoDee plainly considered that to be a rationale for his general performance in activity just one.
It would observe, then, that KoDee need to perform improved in this new resolution. But Tanukana, who had currently taken down just one salty player now on the principal stage, looks impervious to sudden resolution improvements.
Tanukana took activity two in a further 3-1, and moves on to the winner’s semifinals, sending KoDee and his guide button to the loser’s bracket. To his credit score, KoDee took the reduction in stride, and will have a probability to fight back up by means of the major 8 later on tonight.
The major 24 matches are performed, but if you want to catch Tanukana and the rest of the major Tekken 7 players fight for the major prize, finals start off later on tonight at nine p.m. ET on Twitch.
Update : KoDee has attained out via Twitter to say he does not blame the resolution for his reduction, and that “at the very least five people” have also complained of lag relevant to resolution.
