Kenshi is a midrange zoner. Nov 22, 2016
Kenshi is a midrange zoner.
Patch is out?
After playing Kenshi for a year and a half, I'm extremely skeptical that he will be worth playing after the new patch. We'll see...
You should start being skeptical about there being a patch at all before being skeptical about Kenshi's viability after said skeptical patch. :P
Just put my first TYMer on my Ignore List.
Don't tease us like that tell us damn it.
Yeah c'mon Jack give us the deets.
Why is Kenshi's D4 so under-utilized?
because it's so damn slow
It's only 2 frames slower than Johnny Cage's D4 and has more advantage on hit, it sets up Kenshi's high, low, throw mixups, can low profile to an extent and has a ton of range for the advantage it grants on hit. Didn't Foxy show everyone the usefulness of a D4 with King Lao?
I think we'll only see a new balance patch and a new season of ESL coming. Two more DLC than the last game is historically consistent.
Man! Cutthroat Kano's character design gets right to the point. There aren't many wasted moves and overall a very efficient design.
Britain leaving E.U.?! Wow...
I need a new character to main.
Kenjutsu appears to be the best now so it would be best to just focus on that and maybe one for fun. I only play Dragon Fangs and Tigrar Fury. The top tier are very clear right now because of the way balancing went, but I doubt that's gonna fix things outright
If NRS patches the game, they're not gonna not shoot to make more money. Most of their balance patches are tied to character DLC usually. There's a lot of hints too.
Yeah, I think you're right. Kenjutsu and Possessed control the midrange much better than Balanced and I've put most of my time with Balanced Kenshi. Thanks for the advice! It really helps a lot.
Finally know what Kenshi's 32 strings are specifically for.
Finally read the coroner's report after all these years...
Kenshi forums blow up because someone said Overhead Slice is maybe + on hit? I'm never sharing anything there anymore, lol.
We have a great personal multiconvo for people interested in actually discussing one of my mains, I'd recommend you guys get the same thing started up! Leave the doomsayers to their devices n get down to brass tacks n all that
Thanks a lot! I respect your opinions and tend to agree with your posts around TYM. I'll get my notes together and share them with you guys and get a conversation started :)
That would be great!
I think I found some Sub-Zero tech against Piercing Mileena that may turn the matchup around. Just need to learn how to make a vid, lol!
The MU was never in her favor to begin with -___- Not our fault if the Sub player decides to give her the VERY limited room to go through a clone, in which outside that range, he still can hit her
After some lab work, I believe Bone Shaper Shinnok completely destroys Kenshi in all of his variations.
...with fireballs and counter with Ex Scoop on reaction to a misplaced Soul Charge (any variation), land the big combo, force Kenshi to close the gap. Even if Kenshi is up close, Shinnok's normals are faster, with overhead and low's that can lead to big damage. Also, Shinnok's dash is fast and carries the threat of the overhead, low, throw mixup.
And Shinnok can push Kenshi out of his sweet spot. Maybe someone who plays Shinnok can offer an opinion?
Sorry for the late reply, but it sounds like you did your homework. I lack enough knowledge to suggest counter options or to help you out. Your points are well reasoned and make sense so I have nothing to add :/.
Purple Rain.... Purple Rain.....
Smoke has so many holes in his strings and meter dependent, lol.
Finally got ma mutha fu'in beta code! New Kenshi here I come! >:D
Spent half a year trying to make Kenshi work... Back to Kung Lao.
And im still at Kenshi, 8 months now, thou sometimes im like "Why do i even bother?" Oh well, maybe in next balance patch....
I dropped him for 4 months in favor to Mileena. But now I'm back playing Kenshi. Mainly Possessed. Character is too cool not to play for me.
Yeah, I wanted to see for myself if he was good or not. I found some really cool option selects I can do on people wake ups with him and I feel I've maxed out his potential in the neutral game. But there needs to be not only changes to the character but also system changes (like buffing defense) to make the character worth playing in a competitive setting.
Been playing Balanced Kenshi for a bit and I've come to the conclusion that he sure as hell ain't a zoner.
I says Honey; I never drive faster than I can see, and besides that - Its all in the reflexes ;)
May the wings of liberty never lose a feather. ;)
Henry Swansons my name, and excitement is my game ;) this is the best movie ever xD
It's the greatest story ever told ;)
MKX is the biggest game at Combo Breaker and it's not on the 'main' (Soooky's) stream? Does this sort of thing happen to Street Fighter?
Nah. It happens when a tourney decides to give every game their share of limelight.
If you're in or near San Francisco, you should come to our MKX meetups @ Brewcade. We're starting now :)
Y no MKX fightstick edition? >:(
I'm now a proud owner of a PS4. Now all I need is to get my MK Klassic Layout stick to work on it and MKX and I'm set :)
Sounds great! Keep me informed! I'm an old school player from the arcade days and I need my Klassic layout that I have on my stick currently. I'm not beyond just buying a extra PS4 pad, have a new stick built with the klassic layout just for next gen systems and taking the PCB board out and rewiring it to work for the PS4.
Oh, and your streams are godlike! Keep up the good work! :)
I definitely will. yea getting the old sticks modded sucks it costs as much as buying a brand new one lol Only reason im really considering buying a new one is because i have an old wwe brawl stick and its kinda small. Thanks man ill be streaming mkx 24/7 when it drops and looking into a day 1 online tourney ill post it up if its going down.
