Comments

was kotal's large health one of his strongest points? I don't get it. they took health from kotal and gave it shao with no other buffs. nrs throwing darts at the board again. where the scorpion buffs
 
Could someone explain to me why Cassie and especially Sonja have less health, while the undisputed top5 have 100% (except for jaqui)? Kotal still more than 100% Those health nerfs and buffs are completly random.
 
Because at an earlier point, Sonya and Cassie were everywhere. Then when people expected nerfs, everyone dropped them ahead of time, and never got back even after the nerfs ended being quite minor.

Kotal and Shao having more health at least makes sense, because they have bigger hurtboxes, and get clipped by stuff that'd miss others.

But really, the answer is 'NRS cannot be bothered to do any actual redesign work, so here is a brute force numerical change that takes 2 seconds'.
 
The stomp nerf seems like it will help with reaction to altered timings. BC in lag the screen moves so damn fast. Anyone test it online?
 
The only reaction you need is to dash + keep walking after she has left the screen, to cover both stomp timings. This doesn't change anything about that.

note: may not work in both directions for your character, which becomes relevant if dealing with the targeted stomp, necessitating double-dashing instead of dash+walk in one of the directions.

Swapping Kotal's health with Shao Kahn does not benefit anyone. Kotal's health was interesting because It scales with his healings.
Giving a bit more health to Shao Kahn, will hardly make a difference.
 
I guess they're only willing to deliver actual balance patches when there are DLCs to sell. I mean they just want to add the new gear of the next KL seasons, they don't give a damn about balance in the game.

  • Rambo - Lieutenant Drop (Towards + Back Kick) now has airborne frames when Rambo is off the ground
  • Mileena - Poisonous Butterfly (Towards + Back Kick) now has airborne frames when Mileena is off the ground
  • Mileena - The hit reactions to Kahnum Dash Amplify, Kahnum Dash Further Amplify, & Ridin' Dirty (Front Punch, Front Punch, Front Punch + Front Kick) now have airborne frames when Mileena is off the ground
Did they just make Rambo's and Mileena's KB throws even harder to get ? The only throws KB in the game that require skill to perform are now even harder to get while all the other with the bullshit "escape failed" requirement remain untouched ? What the fuck are you doing NRS ?

I love how Kotal has just been "nerfed" with less health while at the same time they now allow him to have the craziest healing capabilities in a NRS game ever.

Shao Kahn players be grateful, you can survive 3 extra seconds in a round with those 50 extra hp, he's great now.

And the health buff to Robocop... He needs to deal damage, not to take more. They could have gone for the easy but important buff and make the f212 KB deal 31% like any other KB kounter/punish in the game but no, they apply a stinky band aid on a broken bone

Stop with the health buffs or nerfs, it only show how lazy you are when it comes to help the balance of the game. Three years of support my ass, it's the equivalent of one year of support strecthed on three years.
 
Thats all they gave Shao Kahn? OK, these people at NRS are braindead.

And Sheeva's (soap bar in my mouth) Stomp move needs more nerfs. More specifically, it shouldn't track the way it does now. Make a choice - close, mid, or far. Or make it flawless blockable.
