MK11 Story Discussion Thread (obvious spoilers)

:)
As I understood, Kronika just didn't want Raiden in any timeline. She wanted him to be erased at all, because his alliance with Liu Kang endangered her own perfect plan to balance all the realms. Nothing about One Being :)

They've been doing this in movies and comics for quite a while.

The Spidey movie universe got reset 3 times in the same time span as MK9-MK11. 3 times.

You don't have to like it as much as the next guy, but the key thing is you both enjoy the core aspect, which is the fighting game.

Can't wait to play it myself.

Just beat it last night and got the chance to sleep on it. Woke up, and I still think it was absolute garbage. How can you fuck it up so bad? HOW NRS???
Yeah yeah I know story in fighting games bla bla bla but when they hype it up so much, and make everyone expect something decent at least from them after their recent games yes I can feel disappointed with this. So badly written, so many issues and shit happening that makes no fucking sense.

So, the multiple endings mean nothing at this point, as the bad one is likely not canon, Cause Kronika would erase Raiden, Which NRS cannot have, as he is one of the faces of the franchise.

So, even with the Canon ending, they threw everything out the window from the past 2 games. There were only two people who actually survived/won at the end (personally, im glad they did, considering that they have been shat on for quite a long time.) This story mode was a disservice to MK lore in general

I was thinking - in both endings Kronika wins (maybe indirectly - in the good one). Why? Because she rolled out to the dawn of time and no realms exist anymore, no Elder Gods, nothing. In bad ending she would probably make sure that Raiden never appears. In the good one - Liu and Kitana starts anew (which is good, but everything else is non-existent anymore).

Her entire gimmick was to basically restart the timeline to erase Raiden from history

Raiden still exists in the Canon ending, therefore she failed

It's not just the ending, it's many many things that add up and none of them make any sense. It is a spoiler thread so maybe I could bring some of them up: They hyped Dark Raiden SO HARD only for him to disappear few minutes into the story. The power dynamic in the story makes even less fucking sense than MKX with the Briggs beating Cetrion (LOL yeah ok sure NRS), Sonya beating Geras 1 on 1, hyped Kotal last game to make him irrelevant here, brought Shao Kahn back to kill him by Kitana REALLY? Zero explanation of the characters that were in the last game but didn't make it here, where did they go? How come they haven't come back with the time BS? No explanation of Kitana using Mileena's sai. 90% of the characters on the roster being nothing but jobbers in the story. Noob Saibot, ugh Noob Saibot. Scorpion dying to D'vorah, and then she gets away.

Raiden does not exists only liu kang. He will just bring everyone one back like he did Kitana

Basically nothing, a line or two of dialogue then you pick either Subbie or Scorpion to fight him, beat him, move on and that's it.
any good fighting quotes in normal modes? 'Least?
And I am taking this with a grain 'o salt, as I may feel diffrent about the overall story lol ya'know?

You're right, but what I meant is not about Raiden, it's about erasing all realms and starting anew.

Hey more power to you, I hope you enjoy it more than I did I really do.
I haven't done normal mode fights yet to be honest, I just beat the story mode, played the Krypt for a bit then went to bed since I work in the morning.
