Human Smoke vs. Scorpion

i seem to play vs a lot of scorpions online..but i always thought human smoke was just a superior version of scorpion. does scorpion have ANY advantages over human smoke?
 
The only advantage I can think of is if someone willing to pick scorpion they may be a really good player and wants to have fun...other wise I'm pretty sure he has no advantages. A lot of people like him from the other games also.

this is quite a silly question. In UMK3, H.Smoke >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Scorp.

a better question would be who would be better, H.Smoke or Scorpion (with the pop-up)??? hmm? hmmm?

I do want to say that I do like Scorpion a whole lot more as a character in the world of MK, therefore, I do wish that Scorpion had H.Smoke's moveset/finishers.

I saw Ded_ do this one combo in Trilogy that was FUCKING nutty as hell. I was like, WTF. I'll try to explain, he did something that the opponent jumped in the air, then Ded_ jumped at him did a JP then Teleport Punch, then Ded_ touched the ground just in time to do a forward punch before the opponent hit the ground. Something like that but it looked like mad more stuff happened. It was just amazing, but yeah that forward punch thing is sick.

Scorpion players rely heavily on the jump in punch to combo, 3 hit knee lift to spear wake ups. The problem is, the jump in punch to combo works only online when there is lag and they don't realize that. The knee lift combo strat, almost like a knee jab strat with extra hits, is fun to use however.

The thread is about determining if scorp has any advantages over H. smoke, not arguing his already cemented spot below smoke on the tier list.
He still doesn't have any real advantage over H. Smoke thus why I posted what I posted. If he he a large advantage over H. Smoke odds are he'd be ranked higher than him wouldn't he?

The forward teleport punch, while fantastic, is not enough to overcome the 2 mistake rule with Human Smoke. It does however bring Scorpion up closer than in UMK3.
 
My housemates picks him loads, even though he knows about the pop-ups, he still beats me easily sometimes. He says its more of a challenge and that it makes his overall fighting skill better, it also has a psychological effect on me since I always believe that he will never win. Dont trust people who pick scorpion ;)
 
I think most smoke players play the same. When someone picks scorpion most people assume they already won and then lose. So I think scorpion is a lot less predictable.

Human Smoke, he's faster.

Also, it all depends on the hit limit that would have been given to him, but assuming the pop up and hit limits would be the same, human smoke wins.

I get why you posted what you did but I'm just going purely off what the original poster stated in this thread. I'd say that trilogy scorpion's forward telepunch is a clear advantage considering it's an entirely different move hs doesn't have.
Any time someone lands a jk they can throw in a free ftp and I'm sure you guys with your mountains of knowledge on combos could think of heaps more examples.
I'm just saying that move gives him one advantage over hs

I guess it's an advantage but it's not enough to make him comparable with H. Smoke.

My twin is always scorpion but he can beat me with him when I'm H.Smoke sometimes. And he doesn't even train like I do. :'(

Anyone who picks Scorpion usually gets a swift counter pick and I go H. Smoke just to show them how stupid of a choice they're making.
