What I want to ask, is whenever MK9's tournament scene dies, will Kratos ever be given a thought? I mean, if the tourney scene dies, the reason he has been ignored all this time is eliminated. Perhaps, when the tourney scene dies, someone will try looking into Kratos to extract that last bit of MK9. But then again, maybe his tourney-banned status will remain as a permanent stigma that will shoo away the people who examine, experiment, and develop the various fighters of MK9. Or perhaps, at that point, it will be too late, and there will be no point in trying Kratos. Whatever path Kratos will go, I'm not sure if I'd like to have him remain as he is now, or have him be given more attention.
