DLC Characters possibly leaked

I'm really happy for the people that are thrilled about this list but I can't say I'm excited about any of them besides Sindel and Fujin. I really don't care for any of the guest characters aside from maybe Spawn... although, I suppose the Joker could be interesting as long as they go with the Joaquin Phoenix version.

... and of course, the hurt that comes with the realization that Rain will never be apart of MK11.

relax he's coming. sheeva was dead last in the twitter poll and she made the game, there's no reason for the second most requested character to not make the game when literally everyone else from the same polls did. everyone is just acting too hasty making assumptions with only a fraction of the information given. derek already disclosed that dlc is still being worked on and is not finished, so if the characters leaked were indeed all of DLC we would've seen them by now.

Genuinely curious but... Apart from his fashion sense what makes Rain deserve a spot on the roster? His water attacks? I'm just trying to grasp why he's "Popular" if he really is, or if this is a case of Waluigi-dom. If Rain got a DLC slot would the DLC still suck to you because ____ isn't in? Or are y'all really just Rain stans.

I warmed up to Rain after the mkx story mode. I like scheming characters and his arrogance was much fitting to him rather than on that cocky archer brat, Kung Jin.

So his screen presence for all of... What.... Maybe two fights and two scenes is enough to shit on a DLC list that includes Nightwolf, Fujin, Sindel, Shang Tsung, and Sheeva?

...are you kidding me? all characters you just named all showed up once or twice in story as well, so why is rain being singled out as if his contribution is more irrelevant than sindel or nightwolf who just jobbed

Never shat on the list. I merely stated why I warmed up to him.
Sorry that wasn't directed strictly at you, I was just probing for input from the stan stans which I now have. :)

Nightwolf, Sindel, Shang Tsung, and Sheeva have a lot more presence in MK than Rain ever has or ever will. Fujin I will give you. All the characters I just listed are ACTUAL classics from the movie, the cartoon, all the original games, there are ACTION FIGURES of these characters probably older than some of the people demanding Rain. I get it he's purple and he's an Edenian prince.... What else? What makes him more important than Sindel, his literal god damn Queen who jobbed the entire hero cast in the reboot and it took Nightwolf, who is also on the list, to take her out with self sacrifice.

I enjoy Rain's character, every fighting game needs it's narcissist, and I thought that he should have been on MKX's base roster.

But if the question is why do people like him so much, it's simply because he's a palette swap ninja imo.

Fujin is way more popular and important than Sheeva

No like Rain has been around just as long as Sindel and Sheeva but... What does he do? Like he's as you said just a pallette swap of Sub and Scorp with water attacks and some lightning stolen from Raiden.
Fujin is way more popular and important than Sheeva
Bo Rai Cho is probably more popular and important than Sheeva. But Sheeva is more important than Rain because she adds a Shokan to the list, and since Goro is decoration now...

none of that is even relevant when boon asked on 2 seperate occasions if the players want rain in mk11, both having positive responses. rain's relevancy to the story or his lore is irrelevant when the community vocally expressed that they want rain in the game

But who? And why? Like I would love to see some actual numbers, some sort of reference point to analyze. I want to know like actual numbers of who really cares about Rain. How many users did he have in 9? Were the number of players who bought and used him in 9 enough to justify some of the people frothing at the mouth that Rain hasn't been included in the base roster, or leaked in the KP1 datamine?

i mean that's what google is for, but it's pointless to ask why their favorite character is worthy of making the roster just because you personally feel they shouldn't. contrary to what you may believe, people like rain. it's clearly evident in every form of media

Clearly not enough if he's skipping two games. Sheeva is probably the least popular character in the entire franchise from the Trilogy era and she made Story mode and the datamine in MK11. Look I know people like Rain, but y'all make it seem like he has like... Hordes of fans demanding his inclusion like Mileena or something.

#RainKonfirmed was trending with 3k tweets on 3 different occasions. no other character had that much traction in terms of numbers. not even mileena

he only missed one game. if sheeva and nightwolf made DLC, rain is just around the corner. it makes no sense to fully include all characters from the twitter poll and exclude second most requested character. the data mines only depicted part of the kombat packs, even when derek fully disclosed that DLC is still being worked on. it's still not safe to assume rain didn't make the game

After watching the launch trailer a couple of times and talking with some friends, I think Cyrax and Sektor must be DLC or something at some point; otherwise it's gonna be a massive disappointment.
they were literally dlc last game. derek already disclosed they are just npcs

That is not a valid metric and you know it. Waluigi has had millions trending. SHAGGY had so much outcry that Boon had to debunk it to get it to stop. Twitter is where people go to farm likes and retweets I sincerely doubt 3K is an accurate reading on his popularity. It could be more, it could be less. But if NRS wanted to really make an impact in their sales with a character revealed as DLC why would they skip that big "3K" pull over Sheeva, or a guest character, if Rain is so omnipotently popular.
