I love the babality idea. That should really be a thing.

I would simply enjoy a random skin option for the default and it chooses from the skins you have unlocked. Or maybe you could select the skins it can use like you can select which intros and outros to have active.

After realizing how bad I am at combos currently, I think I'm going switch to Totemic Kotal Kahn. I'm not converting well from Kahn Cut and the grab range for his command grab in ascension is so hard to land from a combo for me that its basically useless. I think having Sun Beam appear on me will work better at my shitty skill level.

Leaving the release check on makes the kombos much easier imo. Might be different from kharacter to kharacter though.

I'd also like it if they let us use souls and hearts as currency because I have 10K souls and a few hundred hearts just sitting there.

I still have input errors galore, and can't figure out what settings to use for those two input leniency settings to find a decent balance. (release check always off though)

I don't think I've been as sick of fighting a character so quickly as Scorpion in this game. (Well maybe Scorpion in Injustice). I actually love his design this time, but the way they desined his move sets makes me hate the character.

He's so much more frustrating than Geras or Sonya shenanigans. I hope he gets hit hard whenever they finally decide to release a balance patch. Gimme it now. I couldn't care less about the tourney scene.

What are you struggling with specifically?

So, I would like to regale you all with a Mortal Kombat 11 story, sorry it's long. Last night I was doing my final set of 5 matches to unlock the scorpion skin. I am the farthest thing from a pro player, but 'm playing pretty well last night, won 3, lost 1, and I'm on my 5th match. I get matched with a guy who has their mic on and is talking the whole time. Already he's real annoying. He's playing Kung Lao and he beats me pretty bad in the first game. He's trash talking--when I do something kind of good, he's like "ooh nice"--but he's mostly destroying me and talking about how great he is.

This isn't unusual for me, especially with characters I don't play against that often, that it takes me a game to figure out what the guy is doing, and then adapt to it. I'd say this is the first fighting game where I'm even able to do that reliably, so I feel like I'm finally understanding why people like competitive fighting games. I'm finally just now looking for my opponents weaknesses and adjusting my play.

Oh, I didn't mention that this guy is about to rank up. So after the he beat me pretty bad in the first game, he says "let's just get this over with so I can rank up" and boy did that hurt. In the second game I do a lot better. It's close, he keeps hitting me with that teleport throw that kung lao has that is hard for me to escape because I normally block a lot. But I beat him, and he seems sort of impressed, and we go on to the last game.

I destroy him in the first round. Lots of jumping in and kicking. He keeps trying to teleport throw me, and I realize that to stop him from doing that, I can just jump around and move erratically, he'll flub it, and I can punish. I know, real amateur moves, no combos or nothing, but it's working for me. Second round, he is pissed. He's screaming "I blocked! I blocked that, c'mon!" over and over again. I feel like I'm back in middle school. And again, I'm not doing anything fancy, just staying in the air, blocking him when I can, and trying to not get stuck in any of my usual patterns, which were working out so bad for me in the first game. He beats me that second round, though, because his screaming is really distracting and I have this thing in games where I feel bad for people and don't play as well as I should if I'm winning, because I don't know, I want to be "fair."

Anyway, it's the last round. Whoever wins this wins it all. I keep jumping to avoid his throws. I keep kicking him in the face and blocking his combos. It's close, but I win. He is so pissed. He's screaming. "YOU BEAT ME WITH NEUTRALS! GUY JUST USED NEUTRALS THE WHOLE GAME! AAHHH!"

It was fantastic. I almost sent him a message afterwards of "GG" but I didn't want to get swatted. Anyway, fighting games are great. I guess my only question is about "using neutrals the whole game." Am I fighting cheap? What does he even mean? I was just being very careful after losing to his teleport throw, blocking wasn't safe, and I saw I could reliably jump in with kicks without getting punished. Thoughts?

He needs to git gud. lol

I've fought plenty of people that know a 15-hit combo + Krushing Blow if they can get a hit. But, if they don't know how to land the hit in the first place...GGs.

As my fun mic story, I had a similar guy...maybe the same guy?! that used Kung Lao and had his mic on talking nonsense. He took me out the first match. Then someone said to him...something, and he responded "Hold on, I just gotta beat this guy first." Completely unbearable throughout the whole set.

...He did not beat me. I even ended it with a Brutality. I then turned on my mic and said pointedly, "Less talking, more fighting." He disconnected.

The sum of his parts, really. Others have touched on he's on how he is pretty much in control from the start w/ how his teleport operates. I've watched some videos on how to punish it, but still need to work on that, but I still think the sum of his tools has issues.
Even if you start punishing it, you'll run into Scorpions that uses the Teleport cancel variation, My biggest gripe with him they start fishing for krushing blows with F34.F3 is -2, he can cancel it to his overhead chain, bait you to stand for a F4 low, go for a throw or do F34 and get hit by his Krushing blow.

I have mine kept at Long with input shortcuts off and release check off.
I have everything off and kept it in short and I still somehow get the wrong move out.

In my opinion, there's no such thing unless there's a move that's actually bugged and the player exploits it. If whatever you're doing is working, keep doing it. If they can't adapt, that's their problem.

I've had a Kung Lao beat me doing only 4 things. Z hat, teleport mix up, 1 combo, and throws. I felt so stupid afterwards because my mind just couldn't figure out a counter. I deserved the loss because I'm dumb. Those are the worst too because I didn't feel like he won. I felt like I let him win because I couldn't wrap my head around what he was doing and stop him from doing it. That's how we learn though.

Different subject, I have release check off (I had tons of crap coming out that I didn't want when it was on), input shortcuts on, and medium time for specials. I tried input shortcuts off for a little while but my execution sucks and I had to switch it back.

Nightwolf looks like a ps3 character. Very weird.

A bit jarring considering all the others look so realistic. But it might be just his side shot and the pic quality.

Both Nightwolf and Sindel are screengrabs from the CGI trailer, i am pretty sure.
Nightwolf will probably be fully revealed but Sindel and the rest will briefly appear at the end.

They sound like they're making the right moves with the MK movie. R rating, being true to characters, not trying to remake the '95 movie, stuff like that.

One of the two images in this thread was artificially brightened, removing a lot of the more natural qualities of the character. I suspect the character will look pretty great when we get the full reveal.

What is going on with this URL?
It's from The Daily Star, a site I assume is banned (I'm not familiar with it, but assume so).

None of the info in there is new - data miners and leaks have pointed to Kombat Pack 1's guest characters being Ash/Terminator and Kombat Pack 2 featuring Fujin, Sheeva, Joker for months. There's no new confirmation or info at all.

Thanks, yeah I read it. Just a summary of stuff we already knew.

What's the latency which the game lets you decline a match for Kombat league? I was just able to ditch a 179 wifi match but haven't been able to not take a 130 match.

Is NRS going to have a presence at SDCC? I wonder if they're waiting until then to reveal Ash, Terminator, and show the rest.

It would be nice to get a July QoL patch even if there's no character this month, but I'm not holding my breath.

It's a tough call at this point - I wouldn't expect a quality of life patch until a character releases or balance patch comes out. It's starting to gett to be too close to EVO to expect balance changes, and even a new character release is iffy, based on NRS' history of releasing semi-broken to full-on OP DLC characters at launch. It'll be interesting to see if they choose to release one and see how it flies, release one but have them off-limits for EVO, or just wait until post-tourney.

Yeah, at this point I don't think there's any way there will be a balance patch before Evo. When does Shang become tourney legal? He seems like he could popular pick.

He's definitely legal for EVO. I believe their rule is 30 days before day one of the tournament. So I guess Nightwolf and/or Sindel could release before or at EVO and just not be selectable.

Shang Tsung at high level play could be so hype - I got my ass kicked by a Shang online who transformed into me (Sub-Zero) and played my game better than I was. Still, can't help but think that not a single ninja move being tournament legal is a huge mis-step for NRS.

Hey I need help on the PC. The Soul Chest that is suppose to help you advance the amulet quest is not spawning the item I need. Anyone know a work around? I believe the glitch was patched a while back so I can't cheese it.

Had a Scorpion who did nothing but spear, teleport and deathspin along with 2 strings over and over. I destroyed him with Raiden and he got on the mic to call me a fucking pussy for using one combo the whole match, meaning I did F4 or strings into storm cell then j4 into e. fly. I lost my next set because I was laughing too hard at our back and forth message war. Whoever that Erron was, enjoy your free win lol.

FluxWaveZ Caught your match against Kitana_Prime. That vine grab after he jumped off the interactable was disgusting. You taking that Cetrion to tournaments?

NRS has been making so DLC characters aren't illegal until X days after release. Shang Teung won't be tournament legal at an NRS-sponsored event until Evo for example.
