    Thats because most of us are in Discord. We're tired of the constant complaining.

    I don't think WW is a tech heavy character. I think her plan is simple. Spacing, neutral slowly killing your opponent. I think she is fun. I enjoy playing her.

    Its just that out of the millions of people that have the game half of them are playing batman due to his popularity and the fact that he is good. There is nothing wrong with WW. Its just player preferences, some people don't like female characters, some people don't like WW due to the story or some other reason, some people just prefer batman or another character.

    Because she's not easy to "pick up" , she plays completely different than her INJ 1 version, and she's not "high profile" in that you're seeing a lot of tourney plays use her on stream.

    Because she's not a rushdown character neither a zoning character but a spacing character. And many NRS players don't have the patience against zoning. They will try to jumping, dashing all the time. Having patience and spacing gameplay for a NRS player is "boring" to play or to watch. They prefer to have some frames trap with fast 50/50 safe, with good zoning and hitting like a truck....

    Oh wait I describe Batman.

    Dude you saw more Ares, Nightwing, Scorpion, Green Arrow, Zatanna and even Joker more than WW back in igau online. She was far and beyond a better character then any of those mentioned easily.

    I know your trying to imply that since you don't see WW as much as Cold or whoever, means that she isn't good. Which isn't true or even a good way to measure if a character is strong or not.

    For me personally I've fought more WW players then I've fought Cold, Beetle, Firestorm, Fate, Swamp Thing, Grodd, Bane, Arrow, Brainiac and believe it or not, Catwoman, Atrocious or Harley players on ranked ps4.

    And even though I didnt play mk9 back in its hayday. I'm willing to bet people fought more Liu Kangs, Scorpions or Sub Zero's then they did Kabal.

    Online representation of a character doesnt mean anything about whether a character is good or not.

    Wonder Woman in injustice is uninspired character lore wise. I don't know what iteration they based her on, even the movie Wonder Woman showed much more powers and skills.

    Exactly. Thank you.
  17. Because the people you're facing don't happen to find her as much fun to use as other characters?

    For me, while Wonder Woman isn't my most used characters, there are specific matchups I really like using her in. WW vs Sub Zero is a refreshingly honest and fun MU, and so is WW vs Supergirl, WW vs Harley etc.

    Also until Starfire was released she was my go-to pick against Black Canary mains :p

    Is it too soon to ask how the WW starfire matchup looks like?

    For me I rated her in inj1 so much that I just couldn't get on board with this hybrid stance version of her, for me either stance in inj1 is waaaay more fun to play than she is here. If I'm going to spend my time inching in on moonwalkers I want to play someone who is fun and sadly she's not to me. Nothing looks slick.

    I was thinking about this today in my training session. Getting better but do not delude myself--still very much a scrubby noob.

    But one thing that I wondered is whether in the next patch adding a meter burn option to parry that applied only to projectile attacks and reflected them would go far enough to 'fix her' from a lore perspective.

    I know the DC Comics lore is not a good place to dwell so that was my thought there because Bullets & Bracelets is so very much a part of her core. They even mention it in some of the dialogues but it seems they have SUCH an affinity for zoning that they would rather die than give WW an accurate representation since that would render zoning far less effective.

    Stepping outside of lore, my sparring partner suggested that if shield toss cost meter to combo and is her only means to combo why isn't it safe when you spend the resource to do it? To me, that sounded a lot like the words I read on this board and so I thought I would ask you guys what your thoughts are on the safety of MBST as a 'buff'. Does that break her or 'give her' too much?

    I don't know that I would say 'boring', but definitely different than I expected. We came into the game with expectations from the DC Comics stuff and from Injustice 1. What we found was very far outside of those expectations and it made it difficult to enjoy.

    But we have both made lots of progress in casting aside that baggage and just getting into the kit. I will say that she is not 'easy' and requires way more thought. I have a mate I spar with who is way better than my sister and me and who plays Red Hood and Captain Cold. Today I was finally able to defeat his Red Hood with WW. I could not beat his Captain Cold with her. On a bit of a lark and to ease the salt I just randomly tried Starfire and won.

    I don't know Starfire but it was 'easier' to win with her. On the first try. Primarily because she has a full screen presence and builds meter fast af.

    I don't understand NRS approach to WW but I am determined to not let that prevent me from getting good with her.
