Really? Story trailer showed us: She's shooting and doing all the same stuff. I hope you're right and wee can see her manipulating water, wind or something like that.
:DOGE
I truly respect your taste, and I want to eat all my words, but nobody can hide a fact: She can only shoot.
Moveset does not mean powers. No kidding Jacqui isn’t Fujin. But her moveset could still be rad.

This is a fighting game, right?

Pretty sure that making assumptions on her move set, that we've yet to see, based on cinematic shots is pretty far from what a fact is.

I'm hoping her moveset revolves around high mobility and her gauntlets. Or maybe some cool tech/gadgets. A highly mobile grappler, like what Cheetah was in Injustice 2, would be ideal for me.

Yeah, that's why I'm claiming NRS to make me swallow all my words. If a character only shoots, and we have other 2 doing the same stuff, we have 2 missen opportunites. As I said: I loved Jacqui model. It is a big step. Now, I expect a revamped move set to finally stop saying she isn't unique.
 
She's using the gun bracelet against a demon. C'mon, we don't need to have the same opinion, but her gun bracelet is the center of her move set again. I bet.
That was in a cinematic, not gameplay. That doesn't say that all her moves are the same, we haven't seen any of her moves.

Now thats the dumbest thing I have heard for a video game, especially for a fighting game.
Considering the Netherrealm story modes are the best in the genre because they put s lot of care into it, it's not dumb at all. It makes perfect sense that they would take which character makes sense for the story when making decisions for the base roster.

On Twitter the tweet for her render has a lot of likes and retweets though. And i've seen a lot of people saying they love the new design too.

So it's not one sided.



Jax didn't want her joining Special Forces though.
I just came from Twitter. The backlash is the same. Tons of people replying on how they dislike her and how she is a waste of slot. I don't believe you will see something like that for Noobs or any other actual fan favorite reveal.
 
Now it's all hate and if she turns out to be top tier character people will jump on that bandwagon immediately lol.

I do like this design but I hope her moveset gets a big overhaul too.

'ello baby, did you miss me?

You guys are talking about completely different things. The guy you responded to isn't looking for new STRINGS or for her to shoot LASERS out of her gauntlets instead of MISSILES. He's looking for her to pull out a fucking sword or some shit.

Those of us who think Jacqui is generic, need more than new strings to convince us otherwise. She needs to be reinvented with something crazy exciting. And between her default costume, her fatality, and what we've seen from the story, it seems like she's just Jacqui 2.0. Better, maybe, but fundamentally the exact same character.

To be honest, if you ask me how she looks, I think she looks gorgeous, hyper hot! Definitely an improvement over the MKX version. But obviously the important question is if they will "improve" her personality and gameplay. I really hope she is more than pew pew pew this time around.

Are you trying to tell me that Jacqui deserved to be in MK11 more than D'Vorah or?? If yes, then let me just laugh for few seconds.

You didn't had to bring D'Vorah in this conversation AT ALL. Because this had nothing to with her, but you did. And you don't want to admit that you made a mistake.

D'Vorah being in MK11 after her role in MKX shouldn't be surprise to anyone. If it's a surprise for you then i don't know what to say.
Omg don’t don’t come him he was defending his fan favorite . You didn’t have to say jacqui had to be replaced she had a fan base believe it or not we are NOT the majority .

You decided to go off topic not him and the fact that you mentioned replacing jacqui while you have dvorah as your pic is sad :/

She was one of the least played characters in MKX.
Ppl played her because of her shitty, spam variation. Ez wins.
Umm let’s not get too biased here ! Got some statistics for you I found funny ! I’m just gonna paste these here hahah


17.D'vorah-- 133.32--2.908028051
18.Jacqui Briggs--110.36--2.407215539
Play rate btw xD
 
Man, i was hoping they would knock her default skin out of the park because the hate her character recieves is reflective of how racist/misogynistic this awful fan base is. Sadly, it's pretty bland. Blegh.

Hoping her other skins are good and her personality shines in her gameplay reveal.
Couldn't it just be that people find her bland, instead of them being racist misogynists? I mean you yourself find her MK11 outfit bland.

You may he right about the MK fan base; I'm not dialed in to this community as a whole. But at least for me, I just find her boring as fuck, there's really nothing racist or sexist about it. I used to find Johnny boring as fuck too, but they did give him some personality in the NRS games, and he has cool green powers, so I'm ok with him now.

I dunno, I just don't thinking making blanket statements about peoples' racism or sexism is helpful or necessarily accurate. In this case at least, Jacqui was just generally seen as boring in MKX. I admit I could be wrong though; maybe this fan base is actually pretty shitty.

Sonya doesn’t and never has used magic.

Her energy rings come from those high tech wrist band things she has on her forearms, you can even see them in this game if you watch any footage of her customization.

She actually has less going for her than Jacqui in that regard, as the latter has high powered weaponry on her gauntlets.

When talking about keeping up with that group, a person with metal fists that shoot shotgun shells or machine gun fire, or literal explosives missiles, I think she fairs fine.
Ok I take what I said about Sonya back, she can't hang with Johnny, Jax or Cassie either. What is this 40 year old woman doing standing before godlike Jax, with his steroid strength and mecha arms? (I realize this is a ridiculous argument to even have, this is just the kind of ridiculous stuff I think of).

Regarding Jacqui's guns, the thing is guns in MK strike me as beyond useless. Reptile just sprays magical mist everywhere in MK9, and Kabal and Stryker have to resort to fist fighting. A whole squad opens up assault rifle fire on Quan and his zombies in MKX, nothing happens.

I just feel like magic/mystical/whatever trumps conventional firearms in MK, and that is by necessity. If they weren't portrayed that way, then Delta force could walk into Outworld and body Shao Khan whenever he acts up.

Jacqui's gloves just didn't seem impactful to me in MKX. But a full-blown, high tech, quantum computer controlled exo-suit? That I can get behind. Hell, if they give her a personality (and by that I mean turn her heel and have her betray SF), I might even be tempted to play her.
