What's new

How many characters do you use?

i've been using unstoppable jason almost exclusively lately. the armor break setups and the way you can just impose your will on your opponent is really addicting. jax was my main, then subzero but now it might be jason lol
 
Shinnok - Impostor
Kotal Kahn - Sun God, War God
Jax - Wrestler
Leatherface - Pretty Lady
Kung Jin - Shaolin
Sub-Zero - Cryomancer
Triborg - Sektor, Cyber Sub-Zero
Tremor - Crystalline

And these are just characters and variations I'm playing right now. Used to play other characters as well.
 

The Abbot

Unit LK-52O
I've always had the WonderChef syndrome. I'm a bit of a lab monster and learn almost the entire cast which helps with MU experience.

These are all characters I've legit spent time on but the first 5 in each game were always in rotation.

MK9: Cyrax, CSZ, Sektor, Ermac, Baraka, Kenshi, Liu, Quan

Injustice: Grundy, Zod, WW, CW, BG, Lex, Lobo, Zatana, Cyborg

MKX: Triborg(all), Kotal(WG), Ermac(MOS&Spectral), Kitana(RS), Kenshi(Possessed), Jin(Shaolin), Raiden(MOS), Jacqui(SG), Cassie(SO),

All variations of Sonya, but I focus primarily on Demolition.

I also play Cybernetic Kano, Crystalline Tremor, Assassin Kitana, Sektor, Pyro/Kobu Tanya, MoS Ermac, Hollywood Cassie and Imposter Shinnok. These are the characters that I know how to play with, but rarely touch them.

I'm an Aftershock specialist. I've never been good at playing multiple chars in FGs, so I like to just pick one so I can remember things well and not get overwhelmed. Many may frown upon this mentality, but haters gonna hate.

Quite the opposite for me, I commend this! Sticking with a character through the good matchups and the bad no matter what is something I hope I can do in injustice 2, always wanted to try that.
 

Syzoth

The last Saurian from Zaterra - Syzoth - Reptile
Characters that I can use as far as oh,lows, conversions, setups, staggers, footsies.
Scorpion - hellfire
Sub zero - cryomancer
Reptile - noxious, nimble, deceptive
Ermac - mystic, master of souls
Kung Jin - ancestral
Jaqui Briggs - full auto, high tech
Johnny cage - stunt double
Kano - commando
D'vorah - venomous
Triborg - sektor
Raiden - master of storms
Shinnok - necromancer, imposter
Quan chi - summoner
Kenshi - possessed


Then there's a few characters I can use to some degree but its very casual
Tremor - metallic
Kitna - assassI'm
Ferra/torr - ruthless
Mileena - ravenous.


However of those 18. Only 2 would I ever use in tournament. Reptile and Shinnok. I learned most of the characters because I wanted to play the full vanilla cast. Learning the characters taught me the openings and weaknesses as well as their strengths that I want to avoid. I figured it gave me good commentary insight as well.

I have atleast 500 matches with the first 14 characters. I play about an hour of each in a month except Reptile and the more common characters. The common characters I mirror in player match
(defeating a main with a minor is very satisfying) Reptile I get atleast an hour a day every other day or so

Have you had your MK today?
I've rotated often since release but have settled on at least two with GM Sub and Piercing Mileena. I'm undecided on a third. I'm really curious about Acidic Alien after trying a few matches.

Other character I like are Sektor, Fisticuffs Johnny Cage and Warlock Quan Chi. Intrigued a bit by Sorcerer but am under the impression he's only worthwhile in the corner.

Welp my answer to this thread has changed a ton!

Leatherface (All Variations)
Kung Jin (Bojutsu)
Kano (Commando)

My Leatherface and Bojutsu are at a decent spot right now but my Commando is fresh and is going to need some work but I think I'm getting there!

All mileena variations.

I tried to make gm sub , erron black and bg kotal work but nope. Mileena's variations cover all match ups. I don't have the patience for the time sink other characters take to learn. That and command grab imputs seem to be my worst enemy in this game.
