Tekken 6 Lag/Patch Impressions

I don't even have online capability and I still feel let down.... The fact that they are forcing us to play online to rank up, sickens me. I am enjoying the game overall, but not nearly as much as I thought I would. I have a whole lot of work to do to get this new Yoshi movelist down.. I played in the Arena and made it to Azazel with no issue, but I can only beat him one round then I get smoked. I feel like a noob, practice mode all day today for me!!!
