Out of your new mains, which one is your favorite?

Discussion in '[MK9] General Discussion' started by Chongo, Oct 18, 2012.

  1. Ever since the "let TYM pick your main for a week" craze, I've wondered which character you like the best. Out of Scorpion, Kung Lao, and Cyblax, my favorite is Lao. What about you?

    none. nobody is as fun as the Reptile/CSZ team.
  4. well i know how to use the whole cast pretty well, apart from stryker and kano because i don't like their playstyles, so the new main thing i've just been using as an excuse to get more practice with characters :p

    i played sub for the longest time back when MK9 came out, so he's my favorite of the new ones i've gotten

    i still hate kano (i think it has to do with me getting my ass whooped by karate kano in the acid pit when i was younger... i never let go of that grudge)

    i only got 2 votes for sheeva but i said yolo and have been maining her this week... offline anyway, i haven't had my ps2 had here at home all week so i've been getting my cast whooped by randoms and TYM members on 360 pad online lol. i liked how she played when i first started learning basics for her for the sake of soul steal, i still do.. i just hate using her against people who knows the MU lol, i feel violated afterwards

    Gruntypants Real Soviet Damage!

    Reptile because subzero is a piece of shit character.

    Who'd you get besides Cyrax?

    As for me:

    Out of the 3 I've been given... Shang, Sektor, Scorpion (lol dat alliteration)

    probably a tie b/w Shang & Sektor... I love the big damage and being able to zone. Not use to that with Sub-Zero. lol

    Squeaker101 A waffle on the stage of life.

    Rain, hands down.

    NW was fun. though I got my ass handed to me if I didn't know that certain MU.

    Jade? I've been practicing with her, haven't really done any matches yet.

    Kabal and sindel :/

    I'm actually investing time into cyrax now. Sub, Scorpion, Kung pow and cycracks is such a fun well rounded roster.

    Once you master him.... please teach me! I've wanted to play cyrax forever and I've tried like 20438957 times to pick him up. I just fail. lol

    I got Cyrax, Shang, and Reptile...Shang Tsung has been the most fun for me, both aesthetically and gameplay wise, his combos have so much elegance.

    Cyrax kind of bored me and...Reptile...ehh I haven't had that much time with him, but he feels awkward in my hands so far :(.

    Quan's better than jade, but Jade is freaking HOTTT! lol, for that reason and that reason alone i pick jade.

  13. That's pretty much the general thought. TBH, I've played Reptile since the beginning, but I can easily understand why he seems awkward to a lot of people.

    BTW- in terms of elegant combos, Reppy is top tier.

    I just started with week 3.
    I've been playing raiden and he's actually a lot of fun. Being forced to play footsies isn't so bad for me as a player, either.

    Saturday i unleash him on you all.
  18. You have room to talk, you quitter. Made me spend 2 hours teaching you how to use him so you could have a "secret" character, than you gave him up because he didn't have an ice puddle.

    I gave him up cause I couldn't dash with him like a normal character. I would dash and try to combo and always get that jumping F3 retard of a move.

    This is true. Therefore, he can not be as awesome as Sub.

    Maybe if I played Reptile for a long time he wouldn't, Sheeva felt awkward for a long time to me too :). Any new footage of your Reppy?

    Since I'm off, I'm going to study all the good info I received from you lovely folks.
