Sigh, Towers of Time is a online only mode :(
The guy who got the game early checked.
Hype seriously deflated.

What do you mean no? She’s not secret, she’s unlockable. She’s right there on the character select screen, you can view her character model, the game tells you when you can unlock her and her trophy/achievement is open to be viewed. She’s the complete opposite of secret.
Yes? Shes there, viable, just greyed out. Shes not hidden. Shes not secret.
read it wrong

if we're going strictly for popularity Mileena is probably around like Guile level. She definitely has a lot of fans but at the same time is not so indispensable where she can't miss a game.
Yea thats exactly where I would put here. And characters like Guile/Cammy have missed launch rosters before too. Shes not the "Chun" of MK by any stretch.

I mean where are we in the compared to the events of the original timeline? I know x was mk4, so are we in DA and deception era now?

Anything mentioned for stage fatalities? I forgot about them until the mural from NRS studio space was posted showing the classic pit last week.

I like Mileena, she was my favourite in MKX, but it shouldn't be a surprise she's not in this given
she died real, real hard in MK10. They also wasted the potential for her set up in the comics.

All the towers?
In previous NRS ganes some were online and some weren’t.

The ones that change daily, etc. makes sense, but the other ones like Endurance, or with arcade endings would be weird.

We’re way beyond anything depicted in the original timeline I think? The prologue of X (first few chapters) were the new version of MK4.

Once that was over, it jumped forward 25(?) years. In the original timeline, Armageddon had happened before it got anywhere that length of time.

Question: I played the hell out of the injustice 2 alternate universe sections because they were pretty generous with loot

Is MK11 generous with loot? I know they've said 'no lootboxes' so how do you get new stuff?

Klassic towers are probably playable offline.
The hugely replayable Towers of Time Mode with an endless amount of new missions is not.
Incredibly disappointing after Multiverse in Injustice 2 was fully playable offline.

Mileena is not the Juri of MK wtf. Just because they wear purple ? Juri hasn't been there since the OG games.

Chun would be Sonya and Kitana/Mileena would be Cammy. Mileena and Kitana seem like a Ryu/ Ken or Scorp/Subz sorta thing , I don't think one is more popular/recognizable than the other. But if they were going to pick only one it would be Kitana. Kinda like how Ryu/Scorp get the pick.
Reptile is the Blanka of Mortal Kombat. Too bad Boon isn't the Ono of Street Fighter.

Ok, I've given this time to gestate.

Kotal Khan and Skarlet are really dumb characters I would replace in a heartbeat, but everyone else is super solid.

Reptile, Smoke, Ermac, Rain, and Takeda are the major omissions, and only one of them isn't a ninja. I'm guessing Scorpion will inherit Takeda's movesets (or some of them). Reptile is almost 100% a lock for DLC. Rain and Smoke are likely but not guaranteed. Ermac, I dunno.

I swear, if Smoke and Rain miss a game again I'll be... vey disappointed and sulk for a while

Smoke and Reptile I'd take but the rest cam take a permanent hike.

Rain lol. I've already had more fun with Skarlet in the beta then I ever had with Rain. She might be my main even.

Rain will not be in MK11. I already told y’all Mileena wouldn’t and it was so, so expect no different with Rain. Rain just ain’t one of those characters that come back. OG jobbers like Reptile, Baraka, Mileena and Ermac? Sure. But they will also sit out every now and then.

Rain? Smoke? Once in a blue moon. I have spoken.

I see yeah that makes sense. I guess with Liu kang, Shang Tsung and Quan chi dead DA can never take place in first place. Also with reptile dead Onaga has no chance to come back.

Not a fan of Kotal at all, but I personally really like Skarlet.

Takeda is such a huge omission, i'm legit surprised that they only kept him in one game and then ditched him for the next. Wondering if they're going to spread the newbies over fighter packs. Missing Jin too.

But yeah, Smoke missing 2 games back to back and no Rain again is kinda depressing.

I'd like to see Fighter Pack 1 be:
Takeda
Smoke
Khameleon
Guest Character 1

and Fighter Pack 2:
Jin
Rain
Kenshi
Guest Character 2

Has the whole story been leaked to know that for sure? Just cause a character isn't playable doesn't mean they won't be there. Rain was in MKX.
Im not sure if mk11 story leaked or not but thats kinda my point I want to play her not just see her in the story this time feelsbad :( I know one thing tho NRS already has my money when it comes to the DLC fighters its gonna be crazy!

The Kombat Pack are going to be bigger this time. 6 characters in the first one and probably 6 others if they do a Kombat Pack 2 which they'll certainly will.
