THE OFFICIAL MK11 COMPLAINT/RANT THREAD

Here you go again attempting to apply real world logic to one of the most unreal franchises to ever exist.
Jade and Kitana have shown more skin in every single appearance they've had than in this game. But that's not even the point. The point is, and this is the last time I'm going to attempt to hammer this into your skull, that Mortal Kombat is a game that never took itself overly serious and wasn't afraid to battle controversies and the political climate. I look to this series, more than any other, to escape from the stranglehold that extremists have on media. I'm sick to death of people making bigger deals over the sexualization of fictional characters than real world issues like children being held in cages.
This over-sensitivity to fictional media is at an all-time high, and it is exasperating. The costume design in this game is a product of our modern political zeitgeist and only serves as a reminder of all the frustration I feel from it.
Mortal Kombat used to be cathartic in its absolute absurdity. Now it's clearly falling victim to that stranglehold, and it's fucking depressing.
Fuck finally, so sick of all these reddit cunts coming to this site expecting people to circlejerk them over the MK9 hate like they do on R/MortalKombat. This comment chain may be old but finding it gives me hope that not every MK fan is as conformed and brain-dead as the people from that echo chamber of a website.

Yeah you’re right. Some of them are idiots like the guy you quoted
 
He's kinda right, even though i cringe at people who use the word "zeitgeist". There was a guy in a bunch of my college classes who said it every other sentence... I exploded his head many times in my imagination. But really there is a very obvious cultural mandate on female representation in games, movies whatever. IMO gratuituousness belongs in some things: B- movies, Game of Thrones, and Mortal Kombat. Is it so wrong to want violence AND boobs?? lol

My issue with the throws seems to be if you are also pressing the d pad in any direction (or at least down on the d pad) and try to escape a throw it doesn't register. It's so annoying.

What do you guys think about this? I wish they would change it so that no matter what if you press the right button at the right time you escape the throw regardless if you are pressing a direction on the d pad or not.

It registers, you should get "throw counter" as a message, which means your d+2 which you got instead of a throw tech, got thrown out of its startup frames, even though it should should low profile it, because throws become true mids when interacting with moves during their startup and even recovery frames.

So basically you didn't tech the throw because you didn't tech the throw. You mashed in anticipation of a throw.

i did not mind buying a cheap skin for a favourite char in injustice, this game you have to do the slow, booooring, time cosuming! grind, that does not help you to get better at the game

I don't think none competitive players would grind ages for skins, if they dont play at the end of the day either
 
My biggest gripe right now is the damage difference between different characters Krushing Blows. Geras gets almost 32% of his neck chop, which has a realistic requirement by the way, versus other characters that are lucky to get 21% off of moves that have ridiculous requirements. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I get that they want Geras (and some others) to hit like a truck, but I think they need to take a look at some of the damage and requirements for Krushing Blows.
 
Okay, one more gripe: Sonya's zoning is way too good considering her abilities up close. She's not the only culprit of this, just the first one to pop in my head. If a character is designed with a lot of up close options, they shouldn't also have great zoning.

Same with Baraka, though he isn’t as threatening up close

Man is there any way to have the ai do reversal d1 out of block? Im tired of fighting games not having universal training options established. Its 2019 people.
YO THIS.

Can't believe this game dropped literally years after Tekken 7, SFV, and DBFZ and it's still missing practice mode features those games have.
 
The DBF motion needs to go
it should be replaced by snk pretzel motions.

This is easily the biggest balance issue in the game at the moment. Convenience and power levels of KBs is so wildly all over the place that it's really hard to think NRS did anything but arbitrarily decide what KB requirements would be for each character entirely in a vacuum of just that character. Not to mention that some KB requirements are basically just really bad jokes (see: Cetrion geyser and basically all of Johnny's).
 
I wonder if the last minute increase in move/dash speed fucked balance up a bit. With the old speeds it wasn't possible to get oki in a lot of scenarios which is possible now.
 
We all know ranked needs a overhaul.I wish they had ranked tiers just like first persom shooters. Bronze Silver Gold Platinum.So many wins or record gets you in a different tier.
This would help with people learning the game not that you cant read forums and sparing.It does not make top tier players any better to play someone below there level the same can be said about regular players.
Reo had a great video about ranked.
I know its probably to late to change anything I think it would help the online players as well as pros or casual if they implemented this.

Agreed. Frost with the 3 amplified Augs is kinda dumb IMO too.
 
God what biased fuck decided on fatal blow properties. Why is does erron black have a quick full screen ARMORED fatal blow while other characters get melee ones with no armor
Fatal blows exist to give bad players a chance and to punish good players that are "too aggressive". Meaning people that actually want to stand toe to toe and fight in a FIGHTING GAME are in the wrong. The complainers and bad players couldn't handle the stamina meter or pull off any of the combos in MKX, so NRS gave them fatal blows, crushing blows, and wakeup rolls to compensate . It's ironic. These same bad players always use Scorpion, Sub Zero, Erron Black, etc. The most used characters have the biggest communities, so they get everything and Kano is still a shit character. Democracies are like two wolves and a sheep fighting over what's for dinner.
