Skipping this round because I don't care about either one of them. The "lesser of two evils" rule doesn't even apply here.

The off-putting fact that THE GRANDMASTER SZ would choose to avoid a confrontation with Shinnok makes him instantly unlikable. Did SZ really not understand that all of Earthrealm's life force was at stake at the time? Outworlders could have simply been slowed down or handled by his trained reinforcements.

Amen. Like Scorpion, he's coasting on his reputation at this point. But you wouldn't really know that with the ongoing unwritten rule year after year of dumping Scorpion early while automatically voting Sub toward the final rounds.
The only memorable aspect of this year's tourney so far is all the Kombrats refreshingly being dumped early.

I love how the scrubs on this site like to argue over characters' storylines and how that reason alone should get their vote. Noob doesn't really have a story besides being the dead Sub-Zero and wasn't even mentioned in MKX and he's getting more votes. Hypocrites! lol

And how is Smoke's story better? Especially post-reboot.

Really hope not!

krajax, you're one of the most intelligent people on mko. Do you really go for those "Johnny Cage type jokes"?


Wait, does him enjoying Cage somehow make him unintelligent?

How come whenever it's two 2D characters you don't announce who you voted for? Do you really hate the 2D era that much? Is there a single 2D character that you like?




Nah, I don't hate them. I've been playing the game since '92 and I was introduced to it by these characters. I like the Outworld characters, the ones from different races, the magical ones. I guess here you can also include cryomancers (which was the best arc Sub-Zero ever had- and it was in a 3D game!), Gods, sorcerers etc. One of my all time favourites is Rain, son of Argus. I really love what they've done with Ermac in the new game. He's a royal ghoul, may well have been influenced by or influenced himself the period of Ancient Egypt in Earthrealm (man, I'd love to see a spin-of of that). +he's a little bit Kitana's and Mileena's dad.

I just don't like the "Earthrealmers" characters. It's my opinion that they're boring. I don't hate them and I don't offend anyone. I don't see people jumping to the same conclusions as you when someone trash talks a 3D character or when someone makes fun of his/her fans. I think Johnny Cage or Sonya Blade are really really annoying. That's all I say. I don't appreciate that they're "down the throat" protagonists who always outsmart the villain with witty remarks. That's all I'm saying and I'm not trying to offend their fans. My favourite characters have been called much worse, but I respect anyone for their beliefs. It's just that, among intelligent fans such as the posters on mko, I don't expect them to fall for NRS'cheap trick of the Cages being sooo witty and intelligent. "You got Caged!"...Please....

Or maybe I'm not that intelligent and I can't see what you see, a hidden meaning behind some bull**** dialogue some je**-offs came up with


I apologize for jumping to conclusions, it just seemed that you're not very fond of any of the 2D characters. I can understand how you'd think the Earthrealmers are boring, although I prefer to delve further than the character's roots and look at what they can do as well as their personality and what they stand for.

Even I can agree that Cage can sometimes be annoying, as he always gets the last word with witty remarks, although apart from a lot of that, I find most of his dialogue entertaining, because it differs from all the seriousness the other characters have, like Raiden with his godly perfection, or Shinnok thinking everyone's an insolent pest, or Scorpion and his rage. Johnny's witty remarks offer humor that a lot of the other characters seem to lack.

Gonna go Smoke. I like Noob, but his gameplay in 9 was dreadful and I just care for Smoke more at this point. Wish he was designed better in X but oh well.

To be fair, Smoke was present long enough to mention himself in MKX... Sort of.

The Quarter Finals! Ermac is a legion being made whole from the lost souls of defeated warriors. Created by the dark magic of Emperor Shao Kahn, he is released from his control upon Kahn's death in Earthrealm, choosing to serve a new would-be ruler in the civil war for Outworld's throne. Kenshi was an arrogant, self-serving sword saint before he was tricked into releasing the souls of his ancestors. Blinded in the process, he learned to harness the skills of his swords and his mind - a telekinetic marvel striking with steel and soul! Choosin to serve a greater cause, he is a deadly agent of the Special Forces! In another time they learned from each other - now they must do battle! Choose their destiny!... FIGHT!

Noob Saibot won? Many Smoke fans must have been offline for that vote.

Kenshi. While I do prefer Ermac, I think Kenshi does a better job at representing MKX than he does.

I like Ermac, but for the past two games i've found him really... complex (for lack of a better word) to use. Kenshi has a little of that, but not as much as Ermac.

They both have really cool origin stories and powers, and have never looked better than in MKX.

It's tough, but i have to go with Kenshi. Deadly Alliance was my gateway game, so any character who was in that resonates with me more than most others.

Kenshi.

They really, REALLY need to start giving him something to actually do. Floating (or standing) around in Story Mode doing nothing is really lame. Same could be said for Kenshi in MKX as well but he at least had the kid angle going on (and what little happened in the comics).

Ermac has SO much story potential and they keep passing him by in favor of just having him stand there. Kinda pisses me off to be honest.

Can someone please explain to me what purpose doing this "tournament" every single year achieves. I've never voted in it and I really can't get my head around the rational of doing it year upon year. What comes of it, what happens to the winner? Do they get a trophy, champagne? Please someone explain why this gets done over and over. Is it like some awful family tradition where no one seems to be able to say "this is a complete waste of everyone's time, let's all go home and do something productive". That is all.

Just a fun little thing. Sparks a bit of activity/discussion about the characters, nothing really meant to be taken too seriously.

Voting Ermac, I like Kenshi but I just enjoy playing Ermac more and like him more as a character overall. Wish they would have went a different route with Ermac's story though, it was perfect in Deception imo. Kenshi as well, now that I think about it.
