What do you think makes more sense to wear for a soldier fighter? Lingerie 1, lingerie 2 and lingerie 3...... or battle suit 1, battle suit 2 and battle suit 3?
Oh, my favorite thing is to speak about what makes sense in Mortal Kombat. Do you think it makes sense for Baraka to be shirtless and pantless? He could use a full plate armor too. Or do you think it makes sense for Skarlet to wear leather pants? Have you tried wearing those? Or do you think it makes sense for Jax who is a soldier too to wear a jacket on a naked torso? Or do you think it makes for an assassin like Jade to wear green and gold?
No, none of it makes sense. But it looks cool. You really wanna make Mortal Kombat a realistic game that makes sense? Well, good luck with that. Nobody is gonna play that cause it's gonna be boring. You can kill a person with a shot to the head, you know that? Fights would be hella quick in such game.
I can't believe I now need to explain to people that what's realistic and makes sense =/= something cool and fun.

And here we go with the denial. I am kinda sure if the "classic outfits" were the battle suits, and the new outfits were the bikinis, you suddenly wouldn't bring it up. Prove me wrong.
Lmao, dude. How am I supposed to prove wrong some groundless assumptions?
There is a blue talking teapot flying on Earth's orbit. Prove me wrong.

You know what else is "classic"? Sub-Zero being a white Caucasian man. Do you also complain that Sub-Zero is now Asian?
Sub-Zero wasn't quite Caucasian. In the old timeline, he was half-Chinese and half-American. You probably confused him with Kitana that was assumed to be Caucasian, but well, she is actually Edenian in the lore so it's hard to tell how she should look like. Anyway, it's up to devs to retcon the lore and do whatever they want with it. That's not the point. The point is that people like classic outfits as they are part of the original trilogy and a huge nostalgia bomb for them. Are they supposed to not like those outfits anymore and not want them in the game cause they are what, not cool in 2019? Cause you think they look like "cheap gym suits"? Your attitude is ridiculous.

Jacqui's skins are alright. I think the NRS employees kinda overhyped them. Like 3 or 4 different employees had a little twitter convo about how she has the BEST skins in the game and how her skins made them want to play Jacqui. Her skins are kinda like Taco Bell lol.
So you mean her skins are mediocre at best, and then leave you with violent diarrhea?
 
I don't like what they did with the color selections. I felt like injustice 2 had a better selection of colors while mk11 just feels like a mish mash. I feel like injustice 2 customization might have been better overall. the only thing it didn't have are these nice intro, outro, and round victory choices

I actually really like the female costumes/designs so far. Pretty much every female character looks good, and has a lot of depth and personality. I think these are some of the most well developed female characters NRS has done.

It's almost like in the real world we have a thing called the agency of a person, which can actually be determined, and should supercede any argument over what is acceptable? And since video game costumes are designed with intentions the conversation is a little different?

Exactly, that's the point. There's a pretty big difference between a "woman dressed provocatevly" and "fictional woman depicted provocavely by a man for other men".

Until people understand that this conversation will never go anywhere.

I agree with you except for Cassie. Cassie's entire design is supposed to be over the top confidence and flamboyancy. It shines in her intros and outros and her Fatals as well as her FB and her between round taunt. She's a super fly idgaf hard hitting memelord bitchy brat that knows her genetics give her an edge on most people. She needs an outfit that reflects her "Lololol really?" side. Give her a halter top and a pair of pajama pants lmfao give her some pop in color. She's supposed to be a character, like her dad.

Yes to all of this.

Thank God Cassie looks hot in her default costumes, and I hope her customization items look awesome cause those costumes are plain AF.
 
I still don't see what's so wrong about having costumes like this...

I think it fulfills fanservice without being over the top about it and it even looks more realistic than "stripper cop" or whatever people call her base outfit in mk9.
Yeah, I wish people would stop acting like fanservice is such a bad thing. Who cares if people get "turned on" by it? Just let them. That's none of our business.

I've been pretty disappointed with Kitana's costumes admittedly. Not that they necessarily look bad, but I'm disappointed with the lack of variation. None of them really look THAT different from one another. Hopefully when DLC costumes come, they get a bit more creative with them.

Hmm, I agree on the SF girls, I think Kitana, Jade and D'Vorah look great though. The changes to the female designs aren't about maturity or practicality because we have a large number of shirtless men, so it's not that. For whatever reason they didn't like the overall sexualization of the female cast, it's a shame.

For comparison and fun. If a woman was going to get into a legit H2H fight, which would be less restricting, easy to maneuver, kick, etc

Real life MMH/UFC women outfit for fights: sneakers or foot straps, short spandex shorts, sports spandex top



MK 9 Sonya alternate outfit:-Undershirt, Military Hat, really short shorts, combat gloves, combat boots


MK 11 Skarlet attire: Leather from head to toe, leather flaps on the lower back hanging down to the cavs as well as very long on the front, leather pants, leather on the arms and heels


Yeah...I can totally see Skarlet's flaps being advantageous in a fight....



Exactly, I feel the same way man. Plus, I mean it's a video game not REAL people but yeah that's a whole can of worms.
Nobody fights in that, that’s a weigh-in.

Throw the whole society away...
Im glad you feel noble and justified that youre defending the progress of women, but this is backwards.

Men and women BOTH draw and animate provocative characters.

Both men and women are sexual beings.

No one here is asking for them to be portrayed as provocative, but it would be okay if they were.

Females and Males are portrayed as sexy in media because its normal, it sells, and people enjoy it naturally. You think Jason Mamoa shirtless was the promotional pic for Aquaman because it is realistic and approved by Jesus and all men together?

This isnt about womens rights, this is some ancient cover the women so no one knows lust type archaic shit. The women I know would never bat an eye at how Kitana was dressed in the older Mks. MK9 was a bit excessive, sure, but people who liked it arent bad pervy terrible scum, they just have different interests.

This is honestly bizzare, but I guess the majority of the population still worship rules and religions and governments established by thousand year old dudes who wanted the control.
 
Let's make everyone happy by having a National Geographic African Warrior Woman skin for Jacqui. Completely topless with sagging tits.

Completely not sexualized but makes it even with Jax, Kano, Kotal, Shao Khan, Johnny Cage :D
Lets have a pigskin suit for Johnny Cage and Cassie
