    His fighting style looks really great, the fact that you can swing the spear in a combo and that his katanas are properly placed at his side instead of his back this time makes his movements look really smooth and realistic. The combos I saw K&M pull off almost made me switch my main. Almost. It looks a bit slower than what I usually go for in fighting games in terms of character, but he definitely looks fun to play against friends or the CPU. I never really played the ninjas that much in previous games, I feel like their fighting styles were always a bit disappointing and lackluster, but I feel like they really cranked it up for MK11.

    So you've tried to play as Hellfire Scorpion, Spectral Ermac and Nimble Reptile and you just thought they are dissapointing and lackluster :D

    I played hellfire scorpion, but I couldn't wrap my head around how to play Ermac and I tried reptile enough to know he wasn't the character for me. I chose Cassie and just stuck with her until the end. I just couldn't get into their fighting styles, maybe that's why I find them disappointing but that's just my own personal opinion.

    They are not luckluster or dissapointing okay. Probably you are not able to play as them, if you can play as them you never write a comment like this. They are hard balls in the ass type of character variations. Don't cheating us. If those characters are not your type ( i really don't know what means ''my type'' ) that doesn't means those characters are dissapointing, shitty lackluster.

    A 'type' meaning I like to play fighting games with certain types of characters, such as in your face mixup heavy characters. The reason I say they're lackluster is that I'm used to playing a really quick type of character, so when I try slower ones I feel like I'm downgrading. It seems this time around they're going to focus on mixups since there's no running, and Scorpion looks really fun to play.

    Sure he may be quick, but he doesn't have enough options for me to feel comfy being in someone's face with him. With Cassie, you can cancel a lot of her strings into her gateway kick and extend a combo and that's why I played her 99% of the time - again that's just my opinion, it doesn't mean the characters you play aren't good, they just aren't a good match for me.

    If they focus on mix-ups, I'm done. What's the whole point of trying to make this game footsie based rather than full offensive then? From what I've seen, its footsie based, there are mix-ups, but thats not the focus. This game will be slow, dont expect something like K&M's matches. Also Scorpion is hella downgraded in this one, I dont see why you like it but alright

    tbh I understand your point of view even though I think its flawed, but I dont understand @Metin at all

    I remember just before MK11 was announced I had a discussion with someone about Scorpion's Inferno variation in MKX just felt like such a random one to give him, as he's never been able to summon demons before. Had they been Shirai Ryu ninjas it would make more sense, but it still felt like he was given what made Noob so special, being able to summon shadow minions like that. So we agreed that instead he should've used his kunai more and maybe use it like in MKSM.

    Lo and behold, he got that in MK11! And it's so nice to see, as it makes SO much more sense for him.

    Like I said, didn't play him enough to know. I had my hands full learning Cassie :p

    It may be mix-up heavy, but the CB's look like they can extend combos so I don't know, I like how I think it's gonna play, but that may be a whole new issue when we actually get our hands on it. Ahahah thanks, at least I know I ain't crazy, well maybe a little bit. You really think Scorpion got a downgrade? It's probably because I'm in the honeymoon phase, the movements look so fluid and badass.

    Yup, it certainly feels more realistic, for an undead being reborn in the pits of hell. But he was a ninja first and I feel like they based his choice of weapons and HOW they are used on this fact this time around and it looks great.

    Really like what I've seen from Scorpion. Especially in a game that looks to be more zoning heavy than MKX, Scorpion has some nice tools.

    Yeah, his fire breathing and that dash skill looks so cool, but his Kunai does not re-stance anymore (unless meter-burned?) and that just killed the whole character for me (Scorpion/Kitana main MK9-MKX), just look at Ketchup's matches, he has to use all of his meter just to get a good combo

    Scorpion's playstyle was always offensive. Restance them, mix them or apply incredible pressure to them (at least for me) and they just completely removed the restance, he doesnt seem to have another so you just have to rely on meaties which sucks in MK games imo, but hey, this time theres no armor so theres hope

    He has a restand, you just have to spend a bar to do it. But the biggest thing is his safe, launching enhanced teleport. That shuts down zoning and movement at some ranges completely!

    I feel the same, Scorpion's playstyle looks really dope in MK11.

    Yup, if his spear connects to someone who's across the screen, it's a fatal blow and does a ton of damage. Such a good zoning tool as I feel we'll need it against Online Raidens.

    His amplified teleport is safe? Are you sure? I mean if online matches thought me anything is that Scorpion's teleport should NEVER be safe.

    All the players who played this early build say that it is safe. I loved how @Tweedy was putting everyone on blast on his stream for saying that zoning is OP in MK11 already, but Baraka’s projectiles are negative on hit and Scorpion has got a safe launching freaking teleport... but yeah, nerf the zoning..Inj3..you know the drill)

    Yeah I agree. He actually played like a ninja. There was an “end round” animation where he’s swinging the chain then let it wrap around his arm to get to the default stance with spear in hand, it looked really sick.

    The way he swings it around like a chain whip is awesome. That’s Chinese Kung fu but who cares! It’s the weapon he has always used but it’s used properly for the first time lol.

    I watched the newest Ketchup and Mustard video with Sub-Zero facing off against Scorpion. One of the things Ketchup talks about is that the spear buff aplified acts like Hellfire, whereby you stun the opponant for a short time. The Scorpion player was also punishing the iceball regularly so it looks like Scorpion will be well placed to avoid the zoning that will be in this game.

    The Misery Blade may be the coolest addition to his moveset, and the EX versions look crazy. I'm so ready for this fucking game lol
