As we have all just witnessed on the stream provided by Netherrealm studios, Scorpion now does over 30% for his standard bread and butters. Getting hit by a meter burn teleport now results in actually caring.
This patch has put a huge dent in overall zoning/keepaway. Scorpion has jumped up quite a bit with this. He was already mid-tier after being nerfed, now people will pick him up again. There will be complaints. He still has the best TP in the game. This is not good for the rest of the cast.
For the amount of meter he spends, the lack of payoff before was really sad. Glad to see he can actually hurt people. He's kept his unsafe-ness, j3 nerfs and the slower teleport so I don't see any room for complaints about him.
