AI Battle Current Meta is Baraka, Sonya and Noob

These 3 are hard as hell to counter. Can't find a consistent counter to Sonya.
The only one I can consistently beat of these, is Noob with my Jade. But Sonya and Baraka are hell to get through...unless you Noob them. But both in the same team, means at least one loss on your side.

Blood Pixie is a good skin, but I switched to Red Rising. I like the ponytails lol
I feel the same. My personal favorite is Hot Blooded. It's a really nice red and blue skin. There's a similarly colored one called Impact Patter that's the same design as Red Rising (which is also excellent; though I think Outworld Hematologist is better with the inverse colors) that I'm hoping to get. Other than that, Man Trap I'd say is also really good, and Blood Magic may be the best one, but its ??? requirement has me hoping it'll show up in a weekly soon.

My friend only plays unranked online and doesn’t grind towers or the krypt at all. I find those people to be really weird.
Ranked forces you to play with wifi players and its only first to 3. Meanwhile Kasuals/Rooms allow you to filter good connections and play forever with good players that appear every now and then. It's the only way to play this game tbh.
 
So, this Gauntlet Geras has:

-Fire fists and can kill you in a single combo
-Missiles that slow you down for so long that you can actually still be slowed down when the next missile appears
-Said missiles hit for about 30% of your life, and 10% if you block them
-Fatal blow on both rounds

I swear I'm close to quitting the Gauntlet right here.

I'm so tired of not having maskless Skarlet I want to hurt someone.

So if you are out there looking for OG Scorpion, well I want you to know it's one of the first skins I got in the game.

Heads and throne room komplete.

One uh... question though. Spoilere'd (just in case)

The chest on the other side of the Pit Bridge behind the skeleton key door has a Kabal chest. Now when I finally unlocked the final area of the throne room with a Shao Khan chest it was also a Kabal chest. I uh... thought every character only had one heart chest?

Yeah he has two for some odd reason.
 
Any resources to learn the game after doing story and towers? Playing online was hopeless to the point where it wasn’t even fun tbh
testyourmight.com ~ has a section dedicated to each individual character.
Look up general fighting game concepts like 'neutral' and what to practice in the lab. NRS games tend to lean towards insanely strong zoning & chip dmg but besides that most any generic FG youtube video on how to improve should apply

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uibngKGhgxo&list=PLtmBRnEbJ2TtC0fk6ga1YJoXNHuR_WFWx They're doing some informational stuff, they just spent a week in the States doing commentary for a tournament so they haven't uploaded recently. That'll change though.

https://www.youtube.com/user/SupermanSajam/videos He's another commentator but he streams a ton so he uploads videos from his streams. From learning various characters, to breaking down mechanics or even competitive matches.

https://www.youtube.com/user/ahmz1404/videos This dude makes combo videos for the characters.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VezGh6T0AAc&list=PLo3Zl2nq6CkBoXQ94KHva33cFqXhN_UXl More indepth videos, so they're coming out a bit slower. He breaks down characters individual moves/attacks and then gives combos.

Hey I have a couple of really stupid questions but I'm finding the game very confusing.

How do I see my online rank? How do wins and loses affect how I rank up or down?

What are the 3 weapons that show at the end of matches above the augment points? There seem to be little lock pictures but they are crazy small.

I did a brutality with Lu Kang and I have no idea how? Is it possible to fluke a brutality?

Thanks!

You can view your rank by viewing the kombat kard. There should be a prompt in the lower left corner for a button press in almost every menu.

Those three items are your character's currently equipped gear items, which you have to level up to unlock augment slots. For example Scorpion has a mask, a sword, and a kunai that would appear. Getting 5k XP unlocks the first random augment slot for the gear, getting another 15k unlocks a second slot. There is some sort of third slot that is not yet implemented.

Brutalities have specific conditions. Some of the brutalities are shared across all characters, like the basic uppercut brutality, while others are unique. If you fulfill the conditions set out for the brutality and get your second win with the right move you skip the fatality stage and instantly initiate the brutality.

Thanks! That's really helpful and I couldn't find any of that Googling.

I must have somehow fluked the brutality then lol.

Just got confirmation about getting my first servered head, and it's Johnny!

Also progressing through the challenge towers, came across one where you have to get flawless victory against Scorpio and Sub Zero without jumping or crouching, boy did that take a while. Does it get even more frustrating later?

Nice. Thank you all. I also wish to improve.

Yes and no. Sometimes there are tricks. Like for the flawless one, you can get hit by Scorpion and Sub-Zero; you just can't take poison damage. But unless the ninjas knock you on the ground, their moves don't hurt you.

Other sticking points for people are a fight with Skarlet that you have to finish with a Brutality. Not sure if there's a trick, but I was fortunate and just won it. There's also a brutal set of towers in which all the opponents have infinite fatal blows, and you have to win with your own fatal blow. This feels impossible until your equip the right consumables: a whole tower item that lets you use your FB without needing your health to be at 30%, then for each match, equip the larger health crystal, and something like the slow missile. Suddenly these fights become simplicity itself.

Hopefully there's a similar strategy for the Geras gauntlet tower mentioned above.

I don’t think I’m saying anything new or playful here but I’m playing through story mode atm and man Ronda Rousey’s voicework sucks. It’s a shame because all the other voice actors seem to be decent at worst so it makes it even more noticeable.
