You are right, they were up-front about the custom/standard issue.Ed said at the start that they may or not be used for competitive play, that they were still deciding, and that he was leaning against it in favor of having standard variations for competitive play.
It was people here spreading misinformation that they’d definitely be in comp, but that’s not actually what the company said since Day 1.
Mk9 kung Lao shits on mkx and mk11 kung Lao. Can't get more simple than that man....Maybe I came across as snarky. I'm serious, what in your opinion separates a variation character and a complete character. It's a consistent talking point among many people that is vague and nebulous.
So by this logic, since MKX Kano much is better than MK9 Kano, the variation system is what saved him. And Ermac too.Mk9 kung Lao shits on mkx and mk11 kung Lao. Can't get more simple than that man....
Complete character vs neutered character
Variation system killed this game.
You just proved my point even further. The variation system has a random way of helping and hurting others. You can tell where there creativity went with some variations like Kano for example then look at a character like reptile. His variations were lazy imo when they revealed them on stream back then. The variation system is a overall mess in the since of balance mkx had over 100 characters no way in hell they couldn't balance all of them because if the system.So by this logic, since MKX Kano much is better than MK9 Kano, the variation system is what saved him.
Allegedly viable ways.I’m not exactly sure how, but others have suggested viable ways.
I respectfully disagree. Especially with that middle bit.Allegedly viable ways.
It's quite easy to sit here and type away about all the things that could/should have been done. It's another thing when you're the one responsible for making sure it all works properly so that you don't have people with their pitch forks out criticising you for every little thing that they can apparently do better.
Let's not bullshit here, we all know if customs was a thing, sure some people would be happier, but there'd be just as much complaints, if not more, because of balance issues, lack of options for abilities, some characters with better ones etc...
Which is your right, and it is a discussion forum.I respectfully disagree. Especially with that middle bit.
Going for personal attacks because you can't respond with a reasonable rebuttal ... stay classy bud.Furthermore, you’re a hairy & lonely
Reefer junkie who spends to much time with those “musicians” under the bridge.
Get right with God.
