Really Sad everyone is Doomsaying MK11

Watching major streamers shit on the game because they can't run in like MKX is really sad.

Ppl say they don't want to cater to casuals but are literally whining about zoning. I'm scared they will hijack the conversation of this game.

EDIT: For the record, I mainly talking about ppl with large influence over casual audiences when I say 'major streamers.' I know the pros think differently than the average poster on reddit/youtube comments/image boards.

Probably should have held off making this post until I heard more from everyone, but all the shitposting had me a little hot under the collar. Thread title is really shit actually, shouldn't have posted while tilted.

If man sayd, that no RUN in mk11 like MKX and that is bad - he just a scrub, and nothing useful sounds his mouth doesnt make. Just ignore that people, they are not understanding what is footsies and neutral game

Some Ppl here on TYM. 4CHAN (they hate everything though).

And yes Max is crying to thousands of ppl that zoning and turtling is the only way to win.

Wrong.
What they're saying is that it's the strategy that works the best atm. It's strong in the game, because it's hard to get in on the opponent, and amplified projectiles pushes you back. And when needing meter, the best way to regain it is just to walk backwards to gain distance, because the meter regenerates itself over time.

Please, listen to the actual conversation before you start pointing fingers and raise red flags.

No. He literally said he sucks at neutral and thinks footsies is just walking back and chucking fireballs.

He has a big platform and his fanbase parrots him. He's even saying the game doesn't have 'big' combos, which is ridiculous considering its so early.

It's a damn shame. Hopefully the pro's get ahead of this nonsense.

Couldn’t constructive feedback be beneficial though, especially if things in the game are not yet final, as Lord Boon himself suggested
It fosters the kind of sentiment we don't need though. Day -60 of ppl complaining about Barak ain't constructive.

`lol its injustice 3` 'zonya' shitposting is already annoying.

It ain't just max either.

Not sure about those streamers, haven’t watched, but on this site in particular the feedback could actually be helpful to devs in the final stages of development, as TYM overall has much greater knowledge of NRS games than the typical mega streamer

That's exactly what they didn't do in Max's stream. Don't kno
If love for MK is the source of a particular critique of what we saw today (as opposed to hate for hate’s sake), that is a positive thing. The beta has not even happened yet, so they are still making changes / finalizing things. MK is the only video game franchise I’ve truly loved and given a shit about, just hoping for the best

Somebody needs to say the truth to NRS! It's the roster that kills it for me. If the roster had been good, I wouldn't have said anything about the gameplay. But it's the same MKX characters+ a few ones from MK9.

We just played as these in the last 2 games. We haven't played as Fujin, Havik, Sareena, Ashrah or Reiko in years, give us these!!

NRS says they listened to the community. Listened to the community my ass. Community repeatedly said they should get rid of the variations and have more characters in the game. And they come with this 25 character roster. What did they listen to??

Remember pre MKX launch...

Remember we said "Looks like characters do less damage" "Kung Lao's dive kick looks oppressive" And early post release "Warlock might be the best Quan chi variation due to stab"


We dont know nor will we know anything until the game is out and has had time to simmer. Especially with flawless guard, it might make some moves that are plus on block, minus on block and that alone is huge.
