    Let's assume that variations are not coming back for mk11.

    In that case, explain which playstyle you want your favourite characters to have, and why. Should they be based on one mkx variation, a combination, something new...?

    Kotal Kahn needs his totems back.

    Command grab and armored launcher would be nice too but I don’t wanna be a greedy asshole like Mr. Plus-on-Whiff above me lol.

    I will definitely want Reptile Forceball setups back. That made every person who played him play differently with his Forceballs.

    For Kenshi, Balanced form with some sword moves from Kenjutsu. Pure zoning and space control. Leave brokessessed silly design to rot.

    For Cage, I want him to be stagger and chip based. No run cancels. Closest variation to that is fisticuffs. A mixture with mk9 cage would be fine too.

    In general (but it won't happen) I would love to see 50/50 launching mixups extinct and every character to have either a low or an overhead starter, and a small string with opposite property that is not special cancelable, to fairly mix. Never liked the lottery of 50/50 launchers.

    Lmaoo the fact that you thought I was being serious is even more hysterical

    Badboy Takuma you got caged, bitch!

    i would like to have fujin in mk11.
    i want to play a new char.
  13. SixPathsOfHate

    SixPathsOfHate You shinnok become you come in.

    Things I want in mk11
    Neutral: Hell sparks
    Footies: Hell sparks
    Zoning: Hell sparks that goes behind the opponent
    Combo: Hell sparks has its scaling lowered so it does 30% with 1 bar
    Anything combo can and WILL be cancelled into Hell sparks.

    Give me a fusion of jade/shang/shinnok or anyone of those and I will buy the game 12 times over.
    If we could get a brainiac-ish character then I play that but I need to see tentacles and dive kicks. Fuck kung lao
  14. Roy Arkon

    Roy Arkon I will leave my seal on you!

    For general gameplay stuff, I want the Variation system to be back. I think this time it should 2 Variations per character, and for returning characters from MKX, each char will have one returning Variation from MKX with some small tweaks, and one that is completely new. For example, bring back the Ninjutsu Variation for Scorpion, and then make a completely new Variation from scratch. For character specific stuff, I want Reptile to stay like he was in both MK9 and MKX, a versatile all-rounder who can do at least a bit of everything, with an emphasis on Zoning, space control, pace control and mobility. Also keep the Noxious Variation as his returning Variation.

    I want Reptile exactly as he was lol. They nailed him in MKX imo. Preferably based on Deceptive if there's no variations, but Nimble was also a blast.

    If they could put everything together from the games since mk9, and mix it all together that'd be great. Allthough, i think a game without Clash would be much better. Just a simple combo break with various bars of meter is all that is needed instead.

    Man, it's so hard to not speculate on the overall gameplay, but I'll follow OP's rules. Assuming variations aren't coming back...

    I'd want Takeda to play most like Lasher. Good midscreen control and corner lockdown in some matchups. If kunais come back, I'd really like them to feel... different. Idk, they were extremely useful but the look and sound effects for them were really lacking imo. I'd be fine swapping kunai for his db2 being safer/plus midscreen the way mid kunai was. A character who dominates the midscreen and forces you to make hard reads but suffers at fullscreen and is only ok at point blank - that's what I want out of him.

    Jason Voorhees. He's just so fun, no other fighting game character has ever felt as satisfying to use as he did for me.

    DubiousShenron Beware my power.

    Let me get a cross between cybernetic/commando Kano but with only 1 command grab so he doesn’t have the option selects.

    Don't care, just give me tag mode back. Broken as hell is fine. Friends and I have been missing it dearly since MK9.

    Sub Zero with all of his known powers.

    DF2 = Iceball
    DB2 = Ice Klone
    DB1 = Frost Bomb, Shatter Bomb
    DF1 = Ice Klone Toss
    DB3 = Ice Wall (Parry)
    DF3 = Ice Floor (Ice Trap)
    BF4 = Slide
    DF4 = Upward Iceball
    DB4 = Ice Radius (the one that's Captain Cold's D4)
    BF1 = Ice Aura

    Bring back B12 and B2. You can decide on how the combo moves will be. idc.

    And stop with the trolling towards Sub Zero mains, NRS.
