Tekken 8 utilizes rollback netcode, a version of fighting game netcode that’s essentially predictive. There are a lot of explainers about it online, but essentially, it’s a net-positive for the community that more games adopt it. Tekken 8 has specific settings for it though, and one in particular determines how “fluid” your rollback is.

You’ll want to ensure your rollback setting is set to Prioritize Response. While “Prioritize Fluidity” reduces any frame skipping, creating a potentially smoother visual experience, the responsiveness will aim to have better input response. Basically, your button slamming will be closer to what it should be. And that’s what we want!
