    ive literally not seen this characters requested a single time:

    quan chi
    tremor
    tanya
    Goro

    im not even counting characters like nightwolf who are demanded once a half year or semi-iconic classics like kintaro. it seems these folks above were the hot stuff just a short while ago but went to the abyss by silent consensus.

    You can thank the nerf machine for why Tremor wasn't requested. Kind of burst his bubble.

    ...yet tremor still remained one of the best characters in the game.

    I feel there may have been a novelty element to Goro being playable that has come and gone with MKX such that there wouldn’t be much hype in a repeat here

    I requested Tremor bro. I accept the fact he's not in because I know there's a lot more to any characters' inclusion

    Tanya has a strong following but it seems like most hardcore Tanya fans are also either hardcore Rain, Mileena, and/or Sindel fans. Sometimes the rare but vocal Fujin fan as well. You don't hear alot of Tanya outcries because they at least got her as DLC last game. As opposed to Mileena who's as much of an almost absolutely NECESSARY MK staple as Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Kitana are so that leaving any of them out feels incomplete at this point. THEN you've got Rain and Sindel whose dedicated fanbase has been waiting since MK9 to play and are justifiably butthurt about being cockteased by having them as fightable NPCs in MKX. AND then we have the Fujin fan(s). Yeah... discussing that is just nothing but open wounds, salt, and like ghost pepper juice. So that's why you hear SLIGHTLY less about Tanya this time around as opposed to 9/X.

    PS I'm a Scorpion fan. F*K Quan Chi. That is all.

    Not top 10. So, no.

    Not top 10 = not one of the best.

    Marinjuana Up rock incoming, ETA 5 minutes

    Tremor was never a weak character in MKX, he was always broken tier or high tier. Even that month where his regular uprock wasn't functioning properly. And yeah I'd probably put Crystalline in top ten variations.

    More on topic, I've seen a decent bit of love for Tremor even going back since before the game was announced. But I think people got on the Rain train instead and I think people don't expect him to make it back because he was DLC. Personally I thought he was awesome and had story potential but it is what it is. Would love for him and Bo' Rai to atleast make an appearance.

    I think people are a bit tired of Quan Chi. Besides, for some reason the writters absolutely shat on him in MKX.

    I think everyone knows there are limited roster spots. The MK1 and II cast are mostly there every game (MKX was Baraka's turn to sit out, and now it's Reptile's). Between that, a few returning characters, and a few new ones, there are little spots for the less popular characters, so most people are aware that they will skip games. That's at least the way I live it. I am dying for both Fujin and Sareena to return, but when/if they do, I know they will skip the next game in favor of someone like Stryker or Havik, and that is ok. It's a good way of both allowing less popular characters to return while also helping keep the roster fresh.

    I don't remember calling him weak. But if a top tier character gets nerfed, the attractiveness wears off.

    I think Goro has lost some of his appeal recently. Since MK9 he didn't have a moment to shine.

    I don't know about Tremor. I was never a fan, but he was cool in the game. I think it was just the heat of the moment, people don't care about him anymore.

    I like Quan Chi and Goro. I’m indifferent on Tanya and tremor.

    I would like to have at least one shokan as dlc but I picked sheeva because it has been awhile and I liked her back in the day. Goro is a corpse in the background but we will see him again eventually.

    Same with Quan Chi. If Shinnok and Quan Chi are sitting out then that means one of the new characters is probably a necromancer or a portal user. The hood on the Kollector gives a sorcery vibe and Cetrion is the god of “life” so it could be either or imo. Shang hype!

    If you go on Twitter you'll see that the Tanya for MK11 crowd is very active lol

    (As they should be! She's great and should be a regular cast member imo)

    RYX I will downplay anything for 5 dollars

    goro probably not requested because he had one chance to be cool in MKX and he sucked lol

    Tanya was a stand-in for Jade.
    Literally nobody cares for her now that we have the mean green back.

    Not that it really matters but Tremor was top 5 free. Anyway, I've seen a good amount of Tanya requests but the others have been lacking surprisingly enough.

    Tanya is still mad popular, just not with the usual crowd. Lots of the tumblr, fanart, & fic side of the fandom.

    pure.Wasted 'ello baby, did you miss me?

    I would LOVE for Tremor to be in this game, especially as this roster already has 3 Black Dragons on it, and a Black Dragon stage. For once, the BD would be a serious fucking threat. Tremor would go a very long way to making that a reality.

    Unfortunately Geras has a very similar physique and aesthetic to him, so the chances of Tremor being added at this point are between "extremely slim" and "none." Why even bring him up? It's not gonna happen.

    I'm a huge Quan Chi fan, but he has done his thing in MKX. He should take a break.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Tanya back though.

    Cassie Cyrus Have you ever seen the Rain?

    Tremor and Tanya would be hype, but I not expect Ed Troll to give them another chance so soon, so I don't waste my breath and energy on them.

    I will always love them! They are both in my top 10 of characters, but they are obviously too cool for Ed Boon.
