Mortal Kombat 11 Has A Way To Buy Cosmetic Items With Real Money

Cosmetic or not this brings down the overall experience. Devs don't add shit to the store that they don't want you to buy.

Anybody remember MKX's day 1 patch? And how it reduced how many Koins you got from matches? That was to make the Krypt unlock all the more enticing. Orrrr you could spend all your time grinding to max out all of the factions to unlock the Dragon King decals, which grants you the incredible honoraof finally being able to grind more for koins. Because 30 gold per ranked match isn't unlocking shit in the Krypt

Well it's not like the Krypt was made particularly difficult to run through after said update. 'twas definitely still pretty easy to get all of the relevant unlocks from it in a reasonable amount of time.

That's the great thing about capitalism. People can choose what they want to spend their money on. I will be spending money on micros for this game because NRS does usually give us a lot for the price.

If people don't like it, don't buy it. Simple.

You're not entitled to the work of someone else's labor no matter what Bernie and AOC says.

Thanks.

We’re all paying 60 bucks for the game. Some of us just know better. Thats the bad thing about capitalism. Sheep buy into bad practices and they ruin it for the rest of us.


Thanks.

Don’t like capitalism? Try socialism and tell me how that works out lol

This, ^ plus if nrs and we really wanted to they could charge us for the moves that they said would add later on. You know how many other developers would charge for that shit at the drop of a hat?

Watch this set up.
I play Siege which has the same system and it honestly isn’t that bad. If you’re at the very least good at the game the grind doesn’t feel like a grind at all and you end up earning a lot in a short amount of time, if you’re good. Hopefully it goes a similar route

That's the great thing about capitalism. The market fluctuates with the conditions. Supply and demand. You always have the option to play the game and "earn" what you want, I will decide if I want to pay for extras. Options are a great thing.

Once again, you're not entitled to what other people work for no matter how unfair that seems.

Thanks.

I believe some of us just live in reality, others fantasy. That being said nothing is truly “free” I for one prefer quality over quantity. There's a fine line between grinding a little, spending some time and unlocking shit for free and being an entitled, lazy chode who wants everything for free lol. What's the point in playing the game then if you want all that shit easy? lol. Some folks here suffer from "entitlement complex" :rolleyes::D

I don't "believe" it. It's a fact

Wow, not only you believe that, but you're even SURE of it. You're the joy of videogame publishers. (EDIT: I didn't mean this comment as a personal offense! Sorry if I sounded rude.)

It sounds to me like the boxes in the krypt will have "open for 1,000 koins or open for 5 tyme cristalz" which I can live with. In MKX doing the story mode and like 5 towers got you the whole krypt, it was fun. I ended up making another account on my ps4 and doing the whole thing over again so I could use it as a tournament setup with all the fatalities and brutalities unlocked. If they don't devalue the coins much then I think this is a great idea.
I don't think they are going to purpose it like that as infront of a chest at that point you won't know what your buying.

Maybe there's just padlock icons on the character customisation screen so people can tell what their unlocking early.

As others have said as long as the drop rate of coins is decent there will be no complaints especially from us the hardcore crowd. I also think selective purchases is great for those where free time is more valuable than money.

Yeah, I'll be the guy who is going to dare say something negative again. First off, you're all some haters. "Oddly bold for you to be aggressive and speak when you got bannnnnneeeed!!!" Yeah, that'll show that guy to have an opinion.

That said, this is trash and you all know it lol. Injustice 2 had unlocking cosmetics and even variations be a fucking grind. We had the same idea with "towers" when we had the planet specific challenges in IJ2, didn't we? And they would unlock "specific gear for ____". Hopefully, it is handled better. It really well could be and I really appreciate them having it so we can at least unlock it.

But if these "we gross more than what our fans act like we do" ass companies don't stop taking this mobile game bull shit route. It gets so old. And the people defending it get so old too. No, there is no excuse for this shit. We have game companies out here who don't gross the same as MKX did or MK9 delivering these full games with sooo many hours of play that a core fighting game just can not have for the most part with a ton more content at base. And you know damn good and well the cosmetics aren't going to be cheap. The more I hear about what this game is doing: with the battle pass and now this, of course I'd like to say I won't buy it to go against these mobile game ideologies.

But hell, even mobile games have more of an excuse since they're literally free to play. And please: oh god, don't try to call gamers against this new or entilted or we don't know grinds. "Yeah, but muh Final Fantasy", are we at a point of defense now where we use RPGs in comparison to a fighting game? And let's also not try to use SFV as a good standard of comparison either. That shit was beyond greedy and at least I can say with confidence, NRS will probably never be that bad.

tl;dr = You don't want to have to pay for any cosmetics (You don't you can acquire them all in-game), and you're mad that to not pay for them you have to spend probably many hours to get what you want (You do).

It sounds like you need to probably chill, or get a better job.

What a strong comeback.

And by strong: I mean you completely skipped the point and went right to defense because once again "guy say thing bout nrs that i no no like". I'm fine with not being able to acquire DLC cosmetics. Sure. Base Game and saying "Oh, you can earn it if you grind hard enough" when we know how well grinding worked in IJ2 isn't exactly what I'd define as fun.

I could be wrong. It could be just getting them through areas of the Krypt. Which would be nice, but highkey doubt.

That said, sounds like you need to stop trying to demean people with opinions against NRS and their mobile game features in a top publisher, top developing company, full price game.

My tl;dr was exactly your point, what are you talking about? You literally just stated it again lol Why are you getting mad over it? Again, either calm down or get a job where you can afford to not give a damn. The grind is going to be there. Adapt or open that bi-fold. Stop assuming anyone who tells you to go take a nap is "NRS DICK RIDER LOLOLOL STOOPID FANBOI". I just want you to have less stress.

No, it wasn't. Lol. I'm just not out here defending full price games going the mobile game route because it's some shady shit that should be called out. It's really not about the money. But you can continously think that.

I love my 60 dollar games doing the same things free games do for cash! It's really fun. And telling them to grind as if it's a Final Fantasy RPG! We should totally just never call out this practice and allow it to happen. It's okay. It's NRS. We love NRS. I'll stick to what I said about the people justifiying shit like this.
