Kollector main who plays Jacqui
How the hell is Jacqui even close to being as bad as Hsu Hao? First Round KO is literally one of the most fun variations in the game, and even in terms of personality/character she is basically just a less annoying Cassie Cage and people think that character is cool apparently so what's the problem?

Seriously, all of Cassie's skins suck (except for the new one just added), she's obnoxious AF, dabs now for some reason, and somehow got more juvenile after MKX, but somehow Jacqui is worse. Like come on.

Jacqui > Cassie any day, no contest.

No, Hate her since MKX. Just waste of slot to fighter. It could be Fujin. But no. It's stupid female soldier with 0 personality. Hsu Hao 2.0

I think NRS did a great job with adding personality to all their characters in this game. The hate may just be stemming from people who did not get their favorites in the game. My favorite will always be Mileena but as we all know, she's not in the game. I won't deny this game's characters their chance to shine simply because my favorite character is not in the game.

I'm going to enjoy the game for what it has to offer. If it offered nothing that I'm interested in, well then I would not play it. There are certainly characters that I'm not interested in playing as simply because they do not suit my play style, not because they have 0 personality.

I don't think we will see Kollector again. But who knows.....still no Rain. no Fuijin. no Smoke. no Tanya. no Sheeva. All of which should have been in the game including Nightwolf and Sindel at launch and not DLC. But I digress. At least a few of them should have been.

Take it up with NRS. Jaqui is a lame ass character who was just Jax with different genitals in MKX and had some weird forced crush on a much cooler Asian character with whips. And can't think of anyone that wanted her over Fujin. Cassie was sassy and was entirely distinguishable.

How is Takeda cool but Jacqui just a Jax with different genitalia? And I wanted Jacqui over Fujin. I actually can't imagine why so much people want that uninspired wind Raiden character to come back.

Boring AF with little to no personality and aren't really all that good gameplay-wise... yeah, sounds about right.
You have obviously never really played any street fighter games at a high enough level to know that what you just stated is completely false. They are boring AF, but 3rd Strike Ken and Ryu are really good, particularly, Ken. They are normally really solid in every Street Fighter game. Characters do not need personality to be "good" characters. This mentality is just really odd to me but I'm not here to change your opinion about it. Carry on.

How's it going in SFV?

Like you said, boring AF. Not top tier but solid enough. They are not trash characters by any means but the pros usually only play the top tiers. That's why you don't see them often in tournament videos but you do see them online and played very well.

Takeda's relationship with Kenshi and Scorpion is interesting, and it would be cool to see him go avenge his mother with beard daddy. Jaqui's character has improved with MK11's story and even more so with her arcade ending, but I feel like she's still lagging behind Takeda, which was easily the best kombat kid out of MKX.

I can understand why someone would like Jaqui now and I don't belive she's just female Jax, although giving her daddy's dash punch doesn't help that case. Also I'm still salty that they took it away from Jax to give it to her since it's one of his signature moves.

Fujin on the other hand is super cool in design, and not special forces, which is pretty important since half the roster has been military dudes since MKX. He doesn't have much character, but that's because he was a product of a time when it was harder to give one. He could be much more, all he needs is another chance with new technology.

Shao and Kotal both great characters, but, one gets the impression, mk11 scenario was writen by radical feminist and all toxic masculine characters like Kotal and Shao (poor emperor... he have 0 wins in story mode, just punching bag role) was punished for years of oppression. Really, i'm so wait gor Kotal in story mode... And he just punching bag. Shao... even worse.
Really, that scenario soooo propagandistic and so simple.

This right here and to add , why kombat kids failed so hard . They are gender swaped originals in theyr young age AT BEST! They do have personality , its copy-pasted from parents . I would rather see kolektor with one arm and little girl/hulks r*ed son (dont remember the name honestly) with no ninjas in the game at all, then ANY of the kombat kids in the game that ALREADY has theyr moms and dads.

Jacqui is the definition of "boring AF". Can't believe she got an insta 2nd chance and chars like Fujin, Havik and Reiko keep waiting in the dark. :(

Cassie is more annoying than boring I'd say. Didn't like any of the new chars in MK11...
Yes, she is worst in MKX, and they put worst character in the game again, in mk11

None of this has anything to do with moves or fighting ability, for me Mortal Kombat has always been about the lore, not the move-set. Why, because if a character sucks, just give their moves to someone similar enough and problem solved. But you can't change much about a terrible character if they're just awfully designed and written. There's no saving Jarek or Khameleon no matter how many moves you give them from other fighters.

So I say...

Kollector, Geras, Cetrion, Erron Black and Jacqui.

Kollector is just a greedy skinny Shokan. Utterly utterly rubbish and devoid of decent ideas "Hey team, new character idea, hear me out: Shokans had 4 arms... this guy has 6 arms! But you can only really see 4 of them... what do you think?" Just give us a well designed Sheeva instead.

Geras, large stoic man with lines on his face. Apparently a time lord; reality just a bland hoss.

Cetrion, I like the idea of Shinnok's sister being a vessel of merciless single-minded conviction in the name of "life". It's an interesting moral duality, she destroys in the name of moral righteousness. Reality, just a lady in toga who controls the same elements that all the ninjas did separately... and can't walk properly.

Erron Black. Cheesy Mad Max cowboy. Awful, just awful. Get rid of him. Give his move-set to literally anyone else with a gun. Ugh, he just looks pathetic - granted he looks better in Mk11 and MKX where he seemed even more of a tacky looking try-hard, but I still thoroughly hate him.

Jacqui, just blah. At least Cassie has sass and some character to her, she may be rather irritating millennial social media valley girl douche, but hey, it's a new persona for MK. Jacqui however is just so bland and pointless, a character who does nothing, has nothing, says nothing, she just "is". Army girl with zero personality.

That said, I still prefer all of the above to the worst characters in the 3D era. I don't think we're at Taven, Darius, Hsu Hao, Kobra, Jarek, Kai, Reiko and Li Mei levels of barrel-scraping anymore. Just the above don't feel like they're really every going to go anywhere... oh and I just hate cowboy characters regardless.
