The online system behind The King of Fighters 15 matchmaking Said to have been broken since the game launched on February 14, 2022. While many people have not had any problems with the online matchmaking feature, a large portion of The King of Fighters community has reports that trying to find an online match can take up to half an hour. SNK has acknowledged matchmaking issues for the first few weeks since the game’s launch, but there has been little or no progress on when The King of Fighters 15’s matchmaking will be patched.
Will The King of Fighters 15 matchmaking be fixed?
It’s not yet known what’s behind The King of Fighters 15’s matchmaking woes or if it will ever be fully remedied. However, it is clear that this problem has affected many fans who simply want to play the game after paying the full $59.99 price. A simple search for the term “matchmaking” in r/kof Reddit turns up a long list of threads that say matchmaking is a nightmare and ask if it’s still broken. All told, it’s a rather odd issue considering SNK’s other fighters including King of Fighters XIII and 2002 Unlimited Match don’t seem to have the same matchmaking problem, at least to a degree. this.
According to user rxdazn, who investigated the issue on both the r/kof and r/Fighters Reddits, The King of Fighters 15’s matchmaking system can have players queuing up for either a casual or ranked game in the dark. 30 minutes max and some can’t find matches online despite hours of waiting. The issue seems to occur “on any platform” (rxdazn notes that the PC community is the most vocal on the subject and it looks like it could be affected the most) and “in every region” regardless of the search settings of the affected players .
As The King of Fighters XV has a sizable concurrent user base, ranging (at the time of this writing) from about 1,000 to 2,000 players according to the game’s page on SteamDB, with one notable activity following The much-anticipated character Omega Rugal was released on April 14, the problem doesn’t seem to stem from the low player count.
Instead, user rxdazn believes “the problem stems from the core logic of the matchmaker of KoF 15.” In a longer, more detailed response to user insights on the Steam forums, the issue could be based on rumors that the game groups players by Windows regional settings. Despite that, it seems that the best way to play an online match right now is to skip the standard matchmaking option entirely, go with Discord exclusively for KoF 15, and connect directly with other players. through a private match.
SNK acknowledged matchmaking issues, along with many other issues with the game, about two weeks after the game’s launch and asked users for feedback on March 21 regarding the issue. However, since then, the developer has not come up with many solutions.
