    Hmm...have to say MK11 is probably the most balanced NRS game I've played.

    Really can't say I feel any major changes need to be made to characters. Maybe a few tweaks here and there but I think hitbox/hurtbox issues are the biggest things.

    Have to agree. As an example, I haven't been able to get off Shao Kahn (he's just FUN), and even though he is not good....he's usable. I definitely agree with some of the tier lists that put him in the top of the bottom 5, but he's not insta-dead / I get far too much enjoyment when beating a Sonya or a Jacqui or a Scorpion....

    ...but the top tier is definitely better, so they have a bit of a ways to go. It's so much better than 9 or 10 was, though.

    My biggest problem with the MK games is still communication via animations. I'm not busting on the quality of animations, here....kind of....but more how they communicate what's going on.

    The best way to explain it is that in most fighting games, I can fight a character a few times and quickly identify attacks that are safe versus unsafe. It's not 100%, obviously, and I'm not always right, but the animations communicate the type of attack it is. Don't get me wrong, I'd lab stuff and check or correct where I was wrong, but for the most part, I could tell just by playing a lot.

    I have never felt Mortal Kombat did a good job of this and 11 isn't really an exception to that. So, while I think the game is visually the best it has ever been, and that includes animations, I still find myself going back to the Lab more than any other game sans MvC3 to check a string or an attack I just got hit by to see what / if I could do anything. MvC3 I just went to practice combos.

    I actually haven't been this pleased with a MK installment since MK 2 and feel this is the best it's ever been, so don't think I'm hating on the game.

    I feel like the only standout balance problem is that Geras is ridiculously good at everything that it counts to be good at and has a ton of easy damage

    For what it's worth, I have the same issue. Tekken has broad categories of moves that have similar properties and frame data. Standing 4 is often a launcher on CH, and characters with that property animate them very similarly. In MK, it seems like there's more variety in how they animate a mechanical idea - which is great! - but they don't do anything visually to group them together.

    I think that's a valid criticism of their animation, even if it is more fluid and convincing than in previous games.

    I think they should maybe just ditch the concept of tournament variations and build a quick pick UI

    Because he's going to be a guest fighter in Tekken instead bay-bee!

    SNK needs to hire a publicist. Cause they probably don't have one right now. Cause I JUST accidentially heard about Samuari Shodown making a return through an unrelated youtube search.

    Only thing im peeved about is my favorite character isnt in it. (The ugly hunchback with the giant claw weapon). Hopefully he will be in DLC eventually, but I played most all the characters back in the day so I'll be pre-ordering today.

    Like amazon doesnt even list the game in its upcoming releases and its two weeks away.

    Gen-An hasn't been in a samsho game since 2 (unless you count 6 which a- had everyone just copy and pasted from older games and b- sucked)

    I wouldn't hold my breath for him, unfortunately

    Honestly, I didn't think Earthquake was all that popular either, but I guess he's somehow more popular than Gen-An.

    Or they really felt they needed a token American to point and laugh at.

    IIRC, Earthquake is from Texas, so he's a Spanish colonist. Not that I expect SNK knew that

    MK11 competitive online format announced.

    Pretty much identical to what I imagined SF should have if it were run by people who cared about being good at their jobs

    Short seasons, ladder reset, unique cosmetic rewards for participation, rewarded for highest rank achieved, not rank-at-end-of-season

    Basically cut and paste out of Blizzard competitive ladder formats

    Try EVE Online with my referral code, and I'll like you a little bit: https://www.eveonline.com/signup/?invc=86622db9-a6f9-41e8-b846-c305f625b55b

    unless something has changed outside the announcement... I'm assuming comp loadouts.

    Went to a big Denver tournament over the weekend. My transmission blew up as soon as we pulled in the venue so I figured it'd be a shit weekend, but it was fucking amazing. Justin Wong came and blew everyone up at street fighter (and kof 98). Did around 11 hours of commentary over 2 days. Got DQ'd from MK even though I stressed to everyone in earshot that I would be sitting at the stream desk with noise cancelling headphones on and please please please just give me a heads up if my match is called because I can't hear shit. No one did, I got DQ'd, still a little pissy about it.

    68 entrants in Tekken was fucking awesome. Tournament was awesome, I did about as well as I figured I would. Got my back blown out on stream by the guy who took 3rd. Lost my first losers bracket game to a good AK, but match literally came down to last hit. Final final round. 2-2 overall. Was kind of expecting to get deuced because I haven't been playing much, so not unhappy with my performance.

    Best part of the whole weekend, in a bigass bracket full of OGs and killers, a 16 year old girl won the whole thing. Damn near a grand in pot + bonus money as well as a totally paid trip to CEO for her plus one.
