Fair enough. I’m not into Tekken, liked it back in the day though, but recently only played 7 and it’s not my forte and was on the fence of buying it dueI never intended to disparage you and I never said that you knew nothing about fighting games. I implied that you knew nothing about Tekken if you call Tekken 7 the "low point of the franchise". Aside from Leroy and Fahkumram, who were overpowered upon release, Tekken 7 is critically acclaimed by both competitive and casual players. 4-5 people in this thread are telling you the exact same thing.
I mention Tekken 7 a lot because it is the anti-Mortal Kombat 11. LOL. The game is the ideal example of a fighting game that does not simplify the meta or eliminate character archetypes in order to achieve artificial balance. In fact, Tekken 7 keeps expanding the meta (i.e., rage art, rage drive, 2D characters, armor moves, wall bounce, etc.) while Mortal Kombat 11 added a feature that should have been in the game from the very beginning (i.e., customizable variations) and armor breaks, many of which are impractical, particularly on release day in tournament variations. No wonder the community's best players, Sonic Fox and Ninja Killer, play Tekken 7 as much as, if not more than, Mortal Kombat 11. LOL.
to people bitching about it on Twitter and gamefaqs - though the latter is a who’s who of toxic brain waste.
I just wanted to point out in these opinions that you see often people making emotional statements but also ones that speak on behalf of others as if that would give them any more value than another opinion. And aside from opinions we can judge some factors of a game objectively more or less and in that regard MK11 is far from a poor game.
I will gladly take your word on Tekken and sounds like I should enjoy it, as my major gripe with any MK game is that there’s little variety in archetypes and a big character that’s slower vs a smaller who should be faster is negligible. That’s why I love SF5 in that aspect. MK11 will always feel more balanced, neutral, safe instead of more out there, crazy and unique.
