Yup anytime you fight someone and you start gaining the upper hand and it lags super hard for a few seconds and the suddenly they tag you and it's not lagging it's probably a lag switcher. What's weird though is I never ran into them on XBL on Injustice 2 but here I fought a couple back to back.
It does suck that there’s a lot of cool moves that are locked out of komp and ranked modes, agreed.Just got the game a couple of days ago, and I'm really enjoying it. Feels very slow and a bit unresponsive at first, but I'm getting used to it and enjoying it more and more. It's more methodical than X and I actually like that.
Also, the amount of single player content (and content overall) for this game is insane. NRS really are unmatched when it comes to this.
I have some quick questions regarding the variations if anyone can answer me though!
From what I understand, there are only 2 variations per character that are available for ranked play, correct?
So this basically means that if I want to practice for ranked (be it in single player or casual matches) I should always use only these 2 variations right?
Will NRS ever change these variations or add more to competitive play?
The custom variations seem so fun to try out and explore, but I always feel like I shouldn't use them or get used to them since it won't be good practice for when I play in ranked. Am I alone in this? :(
I 2nd this 100%.
Yeah. Go to "Manage Game & Add-ons" and Nightwolf, the Klassic fighters pack and the Sonya skin should all be there. I think it showed up very late last night or very early this am.
1. Johnny (my fav character in the game right now)I 2nd this 100%.
I was whiffing on combos all day until I turned this off, now I can perform mid-corner combos with ease.
Nightwolf feels pretty awesome. I will say I think he's going to get a bit of a nerf next patch though. He seems to have no real weakness and has a counter for virtually everything. One of my favorite characters to play right now, though.
Speaking of; how many players do you "main"? I can count 4 with Nightwolf being the 5th.
I just recently picked up Baraka and he is so much fun. His tournament variations are kind of lacking but he does big damage and is a great pressure character.
I would be shocked if that were to happen. More likely we'll see continued refinements to the current variations we have. MKX was 3 variations. MK11 is two. Maybe 12 will take us back to 1 lol.
Obvious sonic fox is on another level but man as a newer player I’m struggling with him
Agreed that stuff rules
The latter. Baraka was a great character from the start, now people realize it when they can no longer pick Scorpion and say "fuck neutral".
That really hasn't changed much for Scorpion unfortunately. He's still a terrible design and the most unfun to fight with how he can avoid neutral to a large extent.
They alluded the possibility before the game was released in one of the Kombat kasts. Maybe they will add with the complete edition in the future.
I hope it's before that with the pace of their DLC this time. This should be the next priority. So much useless content.
