Who is the character that gives you the most problems?

After playing for 2 months. Playing against Shao khan has always been very hard for me. I know he is low tier but there is something about him that makes him difficult. My main is Scorpion searing rage and Shao kahn just has an answer for everything. Who is the character that gives you the most problems?

No character in particular, but I play this dude on PSN called MasherFGC, and I cannot for the life of me even attempt to give that dude a decent game. He should be playing professionally.

Weirdly enough I have a terrible record against Kano!

I rarely see him, so I just don't have the match up knowledge on how to avoid his tick grab. So every time I do see him I get chumped.

I know it's just something I need to lab out for 20 minutes, but I keep forgetting to do it!

The (Not So) Great Kung Lao. I'm a jump-happy player and dive kicks ALWAYS take hit priority over basically any other aerial attack which puts me on blast. The worst part is that I know I need to simply play slower and react as Kung Lao doesn't have 50/50s or any insane normals/strings.

Kung Lao, I have no idea why but everytime I play against Lao I try blocking that teleport grab, even when I know you can't block a grab.

Scorpion and his damn 1-frame teleport (I may be exaggerating by a couple frames).

Kung Lao. I can never seem to punish the teleport for some reason. Ever. And the dive kick seems to always beat my everything.

Liu Kang and Jax, for their ridiculousness.

Shao Kahn and Kotal Kahn, who seem to have such massive reach and advances. I always feel overwhelmed.

Jumpers. People who jump constantly always seem to mess me up somehow. It just ruins my timing, spacing, planning, everything.

And throws beating a d1. That drives me fucking bonkers.

I basically just lose to players that are better than me. Characters are somewhat irrevalant, but If I had to choose, probably Skarlet, Scorpion, and Geras. My win ratios against them are pretty horrid.

whoever that happen to outplay me, doesn't matter if using a "theorically supposed" better or worse character .... you can't overcome a well and mastery played character that , no matter what, if in the match you lose, was used in such great way, that you simple had none response to the things that hit you ....

Erron Black...

Erron vs Kano is SOOOO bad tbh. I want to make a video or at least a thread explaining just how terrible this matchup is.

He controls the matchiup Kano at all ranges and just dominates with his pokes. He is so safe on his pokes that he could push you out of range of Kano's D1 and still be -1 or -3 but Kano can't reach him so it's as if Erron is still + on block because he could still reach Kano with his faster mid (B2), his faster/safer/longer-ranged pokes (D3, D4, B4), or he could just use the fear of both these options to run up and stagger with 21 or grab....

Vs Erron Blacks that know the matchup well, Kano is forced to go full on yolo with nearly point blank Kano Balls in this matchup, but with no payoff. It's really bad.

Sonya. I feel as if I have a good grasp on the MU on paper, then I always always always do something dumb and cuck myself into eating a combo that did more damage than the krushing blow combo that I saved to get a lead on her.

Literally no way to challenge d3.
Along with him being mindless and OP.
