Sounds like MK isn't the game for you, then, man. These other fighting games have what you're looking for, it seems.Again, that is a MK problem all based around it's stupid chip-kill system. Chip/chip-kill is perfectly fine, but there must be a system in place to counter it (Last Breath is useless). It's even more magnified in MK because normal attacks do chip (even teching a throw does chip lol). Again, NO other current fighting game has this ancient problem.
It's at this point, MK is keeping/adding things for the sake of being different, but they don't have any type of logical application.
How many examples must I show of comebacks in games that have chip-kill, but better counteracting systems? For now, I'll just give one:
Note: Anti-chip mechanic is Barrier meter
