Most annoying move to get hit by

Raiden, kollecter, Skarlet can all teleport behind you and just grab you. I don't get all this hate for Scorpion teleport
Which one of those three can do it in the air on reaction to when you try to anti air? Which of those can do it on reaction to a projectile and punish you for 20%+? Can any of those 3 meter burn or not meter burn and cause you to respect it cuz you don’t wanna get full combod? Mastered blocking both versions of his teleport? Tight now he’s gonna cancel it to mess up your punish timing even more. I think they should make it a high. Anyways there’s your answer my boy.
 
So you can just duck? Why not remove it entirely then lol. I think every move except SZs moves should be highs though
Yes, it was like that in other games. It’d prevent having to block every millisecond out of fear of being clipped. Even pros say the teleport needs to be fixed

Ya, just ducking it should be a good option. Just throwing out a raw teleport should be a bad move which gets you punished more often than not. That's the way it works with everybody else's teleport and, given the multitude of options and damage potential which Scorpion gets off of his which they don't, it shouldn't also avoid the weaknesses they have.

Their teleports are horrible if thrown out randomly and dont give you cancel and ex opportunities as a way to confuse your opponent.
Raiden teleport is horrible? I would argue that any punishable move is probably not good to throw out randomly.

Besides teleports, this game has a ton of fast moves that have to be respected in neutral.
 
Scorpion... Not sure why it matters. I'm not campaigning for changes in a game that's barely a month old.
I respect the honesty but if you play the character you’re prone to being biased. I play Jax and I am cool with his fatal blow, but I bet if I didn’t I wouldn’t like it either
 
I don't get why people hate Scorpions teleport so much. It's easier to react to and punish than subzeros slide. You can even interrupt it a lot of times before it hits you or after the cancel
ok so like sub-zero can't cancel his slide and does have a meterburn and regular teleport to react to to punish. It's literally just a superfast low where if you block it, you get a free punish. Subbies slide is kind of op in this game but its not a brutal guessing game that says "fuck neutral" like scorpions teleport/cancel

I dont agree that scorpion tp is "fuck neutral". Maybe online it is but you're not getting away with that shit without the input lag.

Scorpion: throws out d1 that gets blocked

Me: Attempts reversal throw that whiffs

Scorpion: Succesfully throws me despite not moving an inch

Most people still don’t understand what neutral is. If you teleport in neutral and it hits, you technically won the neutral. Because it’s the same as walking in, throwing out a poke, and being whiffed punished. You committed to a move in neutral. Actually, teleporting in neutral is way more risky than throwing out a poke or advancing string or whatever, because of how punishable it is. BUT the reward matches the risk.

I rarely use it outside of reactable situations and combos because it's too risky against the people I play, even online.

Also most people just heard some top players describe the move in this way back in the beta times so they repeat it.
