If you're fighting against a Sub that has the ex-Iceball, perhaps you should change your strategy and avoid throwing projectiles. Or better yet, bait the Sub to slide/throw ex-IceBall by throwing out a normal that looks like the animation of your projectile from range. Not a particularly difficult thing to deal with honestly.I don't know how else to explain that Sub Zero's amplified ice balls eat through projectiles. You can't trade with him or fight him from range. On top of that, he still has the option to slide under yours. I didn't say I was bad against Scrub Zero either, though I have lost against him. I simply mentioned how his overhead is almost impossible to block online. Blind assumptions.
"If you have a different opinion, state facts about broken mechanics, or explain what you're struggling against, you're either a troll or you suck at the game."
This is usually the last argument that people use regardless of what game you're talking about.
You claim I watch more than I play. I rarely play KOTH in this game, because the matches take too long. Sub Zero is just one of those characters that people fall back on when they're losing a set. If they can't win with Geras, I can expect fight against Scorpion or Sub Zero, as my opponent is looking for a cheap and easy win. Because of this, I have a lot of experience against him.
You can add me on Xbox so we can play first to 3, then post the results here. I'm on right now. I promise not to use fatal blows, like Sub Zero players love doing.
To your second point, stating that a mechanic is broken and then when people who play the character with said broken mechanic explain why it actually isn't broken and how to counter it, only to argue back-and-forth with them will get you labelled a troll or scrub, no matter who the character is, the 'broken mechanic', or what the fighting game is. Sub-Zero in his tournament variations has absolutely nothing that is remotely close to being broken. If he were, we would see him all over the tournament scene dominating every match, but that's not what's happening.
If you were earnestly seeking help dealing with Sub-Zero because you were struggling against him in a respectful and humble manner, you would get the help that you needed from myself and others with smiles on our faces. That's not what you did - you chose to spread misinformation, whine and draw erroneous conclusions about the character without even bothering to listen or test out what people have informed you about. Therefore, I and other Sub-Zero players returned fire back on you.
Instead of, "Sub-Zero is cheap because his overhead is unblockable and because I say so", a "I'm having a bit of trouble with Sub-Zero's overhead. It seems to be too fast to react to; any help would suffice" would have gotten you much further.
Even if you did have a dissenting opinion about Sub-Zero, if you were respectful of the character and the people that played him, and presented that opinion in an amicable way, you would have avoided people telling you that you suck at the game. You didn't do that either.
From our perspective, you're the horse that's been led to water numerous times, yet won't bother to drink.
