Pretty much. I don't want all these guests in the game, but the sad fact is that the guest characters sell the most. I'm still mad they put two more guests in the Kombat Pack 2 in MKX. They just take up room for potential returning MK characters. MK9 had two guests, MKX had four. What is this going to have, six? NRS needs cut back on this a bit.1 guest per pack? We're lucky if we see only 2.
I would love to see Li Mei in. She and Kenshi were my favorites to come from the 3D era. And I don't think the "no repeat DLC" would apply to Smoke, as Smoke himself wasn't in Kombat Pack 2 in MKX, just Triborg emulating some of his moves.My KP1 prediction:
My KP1 hopes:
- Shang Tsung
- Li Mei
- Enenra[Loophole for not repeating DLC for Smoke]
- Shang Tsung
- Valak (Nun from Conjuring series)
They are neither bosses nor employees. They are consumers. It is only logical to let the devs know what they (the consumers) want to consume. If they want INSERT CHARACTER NAME HERE, they do the right thing by letting NRS know. In the end it only increases the chances for WB to make even more money.I love all the "NRS needs to do this with dlc" posts when WB most likely has most of the say since at the end of the day they write the checks. So all of you make it a habit of telling your boss how it's going to work?
I don't agree with the hate towards Shujinko , but can't comment on Daegon and TavenMe : Well they are off to a good start with Shang Tsung so while I am not going to get my hopes up too high I am somewhat optimistic.
NRS : KP1 is Shang Tsung, Shujinko, Daegon, and Taven!!!
A pretty well-thought analysis. Kudos!So, on the topic of DLC characters, let's assume the Kombat Pack 1 is going to have 2 guest characters, and 4 MK alumni.
Here's who we have left as potential MK DLC:
-Probably a no go, since he's dead on his throne AND he was in MKX
-Still possible, but I think with Erron Black literally using his acid in one of his fatalities, Reptile is pretty much a no go as well.
-The game needs a Shokan, and we've never had Kintaro yet. Then again, he's basically a beefed up Goro...soooo, probably not.
-One of the more likely DLC's. Haven't seen him playable in human form since MK9. He's a revenant, and that storyline has to be wrapped up at some point.
-I don't think so. Could be wrong, but I feel like NRS is avoid the Chameleon/Khameleon characters like they avoid Mokap and Meat. No, probably not.
-Apart from Frost, the game is seemingly devoid of cyborgs. Seems like a smart DLC move to put him in.
-Another big favorite, but then again he was in MKX. So, eh, I'd give him good odds, but not great odds.
-Died in MK9. Plus, probably a technical nightmare to animate and design, so probably not.
-Another character we haven't been able to play as since MK9, and also still a revenant. Like Smoke, that storyline has to end at some point, and I think Nightwolf has a strong chance to be DLC.
-Despite Cetrion having a few of his powers, I don't think that automatically counts him out as DLC. I'd give him good odds.
-Need a Shokan, and since Kintaro is basically Goro on roids, Sheeva may offer an easier design to work with. Good shot I think.
-I'm doubtful of Sindel being DLC. She's still a revenant, yes, so that's a plus for her. But then again, Kitana seems to have the Edenian Queen stuff on lockdown at the moment. So, most likely not.
-I like Stryker, and he's still part of that revenant storyline, but I think he only has a small chance, given the number of characters that already kind of fill his niche (See, the Cages, the Briggs).
-A lot of folks seem to want him in. He hasn't been playable since MKA, but Cetrion knocks down his chances, me thinks.
-I actually think Sareena could be a strong DLC candidate. She has ties to Bi-Han, has never really been in an MK game that wasn't MKA or MK: Mythologies. So, I'd rate her as high.
-Was base roster in MKX, so that kind of puts him in the "probably no" category.
-See Quan Chi, and his status as beheaded. Although, this game seems to have a lot of family drama in it between the gods, so I think he has at least a decent chance.
-Probably not, but being a general for Shao Kahn, I think he has a better chance than Jarek or Kai.
-She was DLC in MKX, and Kitana seems to have taken some of her shtick. So, most likely no.
-Again, DLC in MKX. Probably won't be DLC again.
-I don't see him or Onaga being DLC.
Bo' Rai Cho
-Was DLC for MKX. Most likely not DLC for MK11.
-I don't think NRS has any plans for Drahmin or Moloch. So, probably not.
-He's reviled by a lot of the community and by the devs. Then again, the devs have been knocking character redesigns out of the park lately, so maybe? No...no I don't thin so on second thought.
-Has been in both MK9 and MKX, once as DLC and once as base. I don't see Kenshi coming back as DLC again, even if he is one of the more popular 3D era fighters.
-I think Li Mei could potentially become DLC for MK11, given that her last game was MKA, and she's made a few appearances in MKX. So, I'd give her a decent shot.
-Nah. Most likely not seeing Mavado again, just like Hsu Hao.
-I think Skarlet pretty well covers the bloodsucker shtick. So, no.
-Like Li Mei, I think Ashrah has a decent chance, as we haven't seen her since MKA. I still think Li Mei is more likely given her appearances in MKX.
-Popular 3D era fighter. Has some relevance to Noob. I think Havik is a good candidate for DLC.
-I don't want to say no per-se, but I also really doubt his return.
-Kira is a decent possibility. She could get the Skarlet royal treatment and be a cool mercenary character.
-See Dairou and Darrius.
-I don't think so. Again, it feels like NRS is actively shunning parts of the 3D era, and I think Onaga is one of them. So, probably not.
-Since Shujinko's schtick was using the powers of other fighters (like Chameleon and Khameleon), I don't foresee Shujinko being DLC.
-Don't think so.
-See Daegon. These two may return in a theoretical MK12 that follows Kenshi and Takeda's story endings. But not DLC for MK11.
-Confirmed dead by Kitana in her intro? Probably not DLC.
-MKX newbies. Could possibly be DLC, but with Ferra as the new Torr. Still, I don't give it good odds.
-MKX newbie. Like Takeda, I think Kung Jin has a good chance of being DLC.
-See Kung Jin
-I think unlikely, given that he was DLC in MKX.
So, that leaves us with new list of condensed characters that have a good or decent shot of being MK 11 DLC:
So, if we get two KP's, each with 4 MK characters, I don't think it's unreasonable to predict that most of the MK DLC will come from the above, condensed list.
- Li Mei
- Kung Jin
- Shang Tsung (confirmed already).
And if I had to take a guess, I think the following eight will be DLC when all is said and done (and not including guests):
- Shang (obviously)
- Li Mei
I wouldn't mind KP1, but I think Ermac could sit out a game. KP2....ehhh. I'd be disappointed with Reptile returning (give him a break and let him turn into the Dragon King or something). I don't want to see Mileena, but I'd be happy to stop the bitching of her whiny ass fans. It's a huge NO for Sindel. There's nothing too appealing about her character. As far as Nightwolf goes, I'd love to see get a cool upgrade. Iwe were to get these kharacters as DLC, that would bring in alot more people
Mileena can still happen
Ash Williams (Guest are inevitable unfortunately)
KP3 to make an even 40
Stryker or another guest like Pennywise or Michael Myers
Lol, yeah, okThey are neither bosses nor employees. They are consumers. It is only logical to let the devs know what they (the consumers) want to consume. If they want INSERT CHARACTER NAME HERE, they do the right thing by letting NRS know. In the end it only increases the chances for WB to make even more money.
On the other hand, moronic comments like 'NRS are lazy because they didn't include Mileena in MK11' can fuck the right off, because they are so out of reality it's not even funny.
