I think Hawkgirl is the highest tier charcter I've ever mained and she still wasn't any higher than mid tier lol. Apr 28, 2016 at 8:56 PM

      The problem with labelling characters early is that even when they change, people still don't get it and keep promoting outdated points.

        Yup preach. Killer Frost suffered from this in INJ by being labeled "the best" early on and never escaping that label as the game progressed. And with Goro in this game, after playing BiPolar's Goro last night....people need to get it together lol

        I was totally guilty of this with Goro. This was actually a while back in a KOH. We were talking about crap characters. I brought up Goro. Reigning King said I was wrong. So I told him I could beat his Goro free despite him being of clearly higher skill than me- it was just that bad a character.

        Yeah I got bodied.

        If Mileena doesn't have a 50/50 than neither does Sub

        Just because she's meter dependant mean the tools don't exist, she has decent meter building and that Overhead is a real threat

        The only characters that seem super incomplete or poorly designed to me right now are Mileena, Jason and Kenshi. The other low tiers wouldn't be broke with more buffs, but they're in good shape.

        I believe she was designed to zone/anti zone, but falls flat. Her sais are ok. She has Tele kick if you make a read, her roll goes under mid projectiles and shuts down all jumping, but she still needs a bit of help. A better d1 would make a difference

        EX Fade is great for getting out of pressure situations and waking up. I tend to play Ethereal in a rushdown/keep away mix. If you have meter she is kinda dangerous. Doing F1, EX Fade, F3 destroys a lot of people. If they start blocking that you still have F4 and grab. If they don't respect you keep them in check with D1.

        Jacqui is lame and generic, probably the worst female character NRS has made in recent games. There are too many characters with guns as is and Cassie is cooler, as is Jax. So it's literally like...."why?"

      I have begun using tigrar fury goro heavily since studying your guide :) until now it has been kuatan warrior all the way for me. My question for you is: how do you rank his variations? I prefer KW (although that may now change), then TF, and lastly DF. Again, your guide was luscious :):):)
      1. Espio
        Espio
        Tigrar is number one in my opinion, always has been despite a lot of the discourse. The only match up I really can think of where Kuatan Warrior is better is Grandmaster Sub-Zero.

        Kuatan is second and Dragon Fangs to me anyway trails fairly far behind the other two, some people use it for Kung Lao or Scorpion, but I don't see the point really.

        I like using the fact that I have projectiles as a mind game to bait Scorpion and other counter zoners into doing risky teleports to check you from zoning so I'll throw out safe on whiff, quick recovery normals to get people to try to punish. They're reacting to the movement more so than the projectiles per se.

        I closed one of his threads informing everyone that King winning against Sub-Zero doesn't mean Goro is good cause the thread was pretty pointless. Everyone saying he's now "confirmed top 5" is clearly not serious because everyone knows that isn't true. It was an obvious troll from everyone lol.

        I have not closed any of his other threads so whatever else is just story telling.
