Although the Guilty Gear Strive public beta will go live tomorrow for those that pre-ordered the game, select members of the fighting game community have been given early access.

We've gathered some impressions from Supernoon, PG|HookGangGod, EG|SonicFox, Jiyuna, PG|Tyrant, thaGaGaGuy and Jebailey.

Many players in the United States have reported that they've tested Guilty Gear Strive's netcode by going up against Jiyuna, a player living in Japan. Players are claiming that the experience was "flawless" and had "no lag."

Jiyuna himself declared that he "played for five hours and [it] was the best fighting game netplay [he had] ever played." It really seems like Guilty Gear Strive's online experience is being universally praised by those that are getting to test early.

Matches between a variety of different players from different regions have also been uploaded via Twitter clips. You can see just how little lag is present yourself.
