Why is Kabal so gay?

Why can he spin me when I swear I was blocking?

Why can he spin when he's on the ground?

Why am I forced to play a defensive match when someone picks him because of the randomness of his spin?

Why is he so gay?

Srsly. If you use Kabal exclusively you're just a noob. Get some skill. I heard someone say earlier "everyone has a good Kabal" and it's true. Anyone can be good with him cause he's a cheap bastard. And he looks like a fetish porn reject.

Down with Kabal. Who's with me?
 
Don't really mind him that much anymore as I can bait out the spin quite well most of the time and counter them. Sounds like you have lost to one too many Kabals recently. :lol:

Whenever I try to "bait" the spin, as detailed in the Kabal guide, I just end up getting spinned anyway. Even though like I said I pushed blocked cause I knew it was coming.

I beat Kabal's in every other aspect of the game, but they can always spin me in the most random moments and it's BS. robosmoke's can't get away with it, teleporters can't get away with it, so why can Kabal? Whoever made Kabal is an idiot.

1) Picking Kabal all day doesn't make you a noob.

2) Everyone does NOT have a good Kabal.

There are a lot of people that play to win, and if you are good with Kabal, Kabal is the way to win. The more you play against Kabals the more you'll learn to bait out the spin. And hopefully you learn quickly what not to do in a match against Kabal. For instance, you probably don't want to do a cross up jump on a decent Kabal. And you probably don't want to jump at all against a good Kabal.
 
He's Nimber 1 For a reason. His Spin and Ermacs TKS are the only Broken Moves in the Game. Bait the Spins, Kara Jab, Just Always Play like he can spin any Minute.

Playing against Red Psychosis is Helping me out with my VS Kabal Game.

Kung Lao's spin is the most broken move in the game, lol. That needed some kind of hit limit.

And that reason is: he's the cheapest.

Yes some people play to win, I'm one of them, but some people have HONOR. Playing with Kabal just makes me feel all icky cause I know I'm using a broken character.
 
yes I've seen those videos. Why does Bill always use Kabal? Is he afraid to use anyone else? Seems like a major douchebag to me.

Im glad you beat him with Reptile - a character that actually takes SKILL to use. Not just blind rushdowns mixed with broken spins.

The only thing Bill doesn't do is check blocking frequently enough vs Reptile which is why I catch so many wake up slides. When he does it's usually by the third round if it goes that long and if that happens that means he's not rushing as much which is when I start throwing out the HP stoppers and psychic uppercuts. I've never played against a Kabal so furious.
 
Well, that's the reason I'm picking up Kano. My stryker struggles against teleporters, and my Robot Smoke is improving, but he's also a basically "cheap" character as well.

ABC's Human Smoke and Ermac have helped me against teleporting ninjas, but Reptile is an iffy..

Ah, Bill's Kabal. Beastly indeed. I finally managed to get a win or two against him at ECC, but the camera wasn't turned on. :p But damn, I REALLY had to work for those. I'm still very proud of my videotaped loss to him at Clash... that Kano vs. Kabal match is almost infamous! Pure psychic cannonball madness; I consider it perhaps my best-played match ever.

He's the best in the game for many more reasons than you listed. Go read his character guide. Aside from that there are plenty of noobs who pick Kabal, the ones that always spin when you're blocking and get countered everytime, then there are players who are really good with him. Sitting there bitching about it wont help you get any better.
 
he is difficult,but definetly not impossible to beat. You need to play more intensively when playing him.

H.Smoke vs sheeva is most of the times on autopilot, when playing vs kabal youre always on the lookout and pressing buttons. Hes just not like the rest, hence the tier
 
I play as Kabal sometimes.

If anyone else plays him like me, it's just about avoiding the air fireballs I spam, and ducking LKing my run jabs. Then obviously guarding the spins.

I know it's easier said than done, but it's just all about playing defensively, and waiting until the Kabal screws up.

I like watching KaBill :wink:

Enough with the "honor" bullshit cry, I heard enough of that playing MKD. If you don't like it, there is a power button you should press.

That was me saying that in some other thread called 'Americans' or whatever it was. Which was then followed up in the same post with a "j/k" which means I was 'just kidding'. Don't take jokes out of context.

I joked that only cause the spin dash can punish ALOT of things that other characters can't even begin to punish.
----

IMO Kabal is only good when you use the spin while they are in the air, or if they do a ground lagged move you can punish on block. Otherwise the spin should never be thrown out cause then there's the chance it can be blocked.

I'd much rather fight against a Kabal than a ninja teleporter anyday, because I know for a fact that there's only one side of the screen Kabal can reach you.

Why don't you use a safe character, and play safe the entire time. If you play correctly you should actually never receive damage outside of chipping, if you're on point that is.

That's one of the reasons I'd rather NOT fight ninja teleporters because they put a holes in my gameplay.
