Part of me kinda hopes they throw out the majority of old strings so that legacy skill isn't a huge advantage? Dec 9, 2018 at 7:49 PM

        The most consistent leak to date says only 4 of the new MKX 8 are returning -- I'd guess Cassie, Takeda, Kotal, and D'Vorah. But you never know!

      What do people like better: I2's two health bar system or MKX's round-by-round health bar system?

        I think round by round is the more time tested way of doing health bars and I think it's really good. I think the two health bars fits Injustice 2 though. It has a dramatic effect towards making the game slower paced and more meticulous which I think is a good thing for the game. It completely changes the risk reward of the game and it makes things like chip damage and meter management more relevant.

        They both have their pros and cons, but I personally prefer the Round-by-Round system, as it gives both players a more equal chance to win the overall fight due to the health being replenished at every round, and it's not a skill contradicting thing as both players have to do the same amount of work more-or-less from an equal state and use their skill properly every time.

      I think Grodd's trait would be better if it worked like a stance. Distinct movesets in and out of psychic powers trait.

        I think his trait is implemented well ever since they changed it so he can combo D1~StopHittingYourSelf. But then again, I also think Raiden's trait is implemented well so maybe I'm unique in that.

        All said, I think stance characters are really cool when they aren't Sonya Blade. Drunken Master Bo Rai and characters like Lei Wu Long are super cool in my book.

      Does anyone know a good Noctis player for match footage? I realize there probably aren't many but I'm looking for neutral tricks.

        His neutral plays itself lol. Db1+2 tracks better when you space it at about max distance. You can have anything with extensions blocked, start backdashing to fake out your opponent then just come back in with running 1+2. If they whiff something you just df2 or f2. You can also go in with fF1+2.

        Yea it just seemed like a classic case of trying to do too much. Individual scenes are excellent, it's just wacky on a whole. Sandman was great, symbiote stuff was great, Harry Osboune was great and I even liked Venom, it was just a lot for one movie.

        Right?? Like those villains don't make sense in conjunction because their characters and motivations are so vastly distinct, and Peter's character arcs within the context of fighting those villains should be distinct too.

        Google 'Brook' converters. They have a good reputation and I know people who vouch by them personally. Don't know the price of them or if it changes depending on country you're from but I recall them being near £30 or something.

        I was under the impression that most people liked the new characters from outworld, and that dislike was more along the lines being upset that they didn't get more character development.

        Nah, that show fell off hard. Season 1 and 2 were objectively good, but the show became too memey in season 3 and failed to come up with any interesting premises. The show totally fucked up its handling of Morty's Dad imo and it was a disinterested clusterfuck.

        Lol, it’s a show that espouses “nothing is objectively important, everything can be subjectively important, neither is correct.”

        Season 3 was more laugh-a-minute, but had some of the best episodes yet. Season 1 still my fave tho.
