I just care about playing Reptile. FUCK THE REST. #Reptile4DLC
But really, tiers matter way moreso at the highest levels of play, where every advantage and disadvantage matters, and even then, a mid tier or even low tier can have their place because they have that one advantage matchup vs a common strong character. But at the end of the day, have fun. If fun for you is winning, and you don't care how, top tier is for you. If you wanna play your favorites, do so.
Well, usually when I get a new game I play around finding my main and when I've finally made a decision and start going online it's when I look on the net and it's a bottom tier character. Happens every time.
Then, after months of using him when I change character or drop the game it's usually when they buff him to hell with a patch and he becames god tier.
Are they? I dunno I don’t pay any attention whatsoever to tier lists. But I don’t think I saw any top players use them. I believe Mileena was super unsafe wasn’t she? I used Piercing exclusively. Maybe she got better through patches after I stopped playing?
Ill start by playing a character that i like for aesthetics, but mk9 taught me to never try to main a low tier again, no matter how cool they may be. Mkx was decently balanced and Id hope Mk11 is the same. I have a bias towards kabal though and think he is probably going to be bullshit just like he was in mk9 when all is said and done.
