After some combos I did vs Jax (who is really easy to combo) with Kung Lao...I'd have to agree with you that Kung Lao is better than Jax, but when are you going to be able to do them against him when he just about never has to jump at you? So that still has Jax better than Kung Lao.

Still, Jax > than almost everyone else.

In my opinion, I think Kitana is def one of the best. She is the only person i can beat the game with on very hard.

Unfortunately we're really only talking about playing 1 on 1, but yes, it's pretty easy to beat MK2 with Kitana.

On the grand scale Baraka is considered low middle tier. I think he is one of those characters who has the ability to be dominant however he has to be used way more efficiently than say Mileena or Jax. That's where the tier concept comes into play, Baraka might be good in a really skilled player's hands, but the effort needed to beat even a sloppy Mileena might be too great a task.

if u read all my posts u will c that i think that every 1 including baraka r good.. but when i went ahead and made a tier bracket,like kung lao broken said ''Baraka might be good in a really skilled player's hands, but the effort needed to beat even a sloppy Mileena might be too great a task.'' try winning w/ baraka vs raiden..its hard.

The most inaccurate tier listing I've ever seen, it was like they random selected until each character was picked once and just wrote down the order.

Matt

Obviously, you can't read. Let me say it again.

I don't care what magazines yall read, these are my rankings, and if you don't agree, see me and I'll prove it to yall.
It's as simple as that; Nuff said.

We aren't going by magazines, we are going by the results of matches people have played against eachother for years when it counts. *Life* doesn't care what your tier listings are because they are grossly unrealistic. THAT is plain and simple, nuff said.

Everybody has different opinions and different views. You claim my list is "unrealistic" because the majority says otherwise. You also claim my list is "inaccurate" and "random". See the part you wrote that's bold and underlined? I have fought many a warrior back and my time, and from the epic battles that I had, I was able to judge in my opinion who I was better with than who. The list I presented is the list of (from top to bottom) who my best character is, and who's my worst. Just because the majority say so-and-so is weaker compared to so-and-so, doesn't mean that I have to agree or accept it; because I know when I play with the weak and low so-and-so, I'm kicking ass and asking questions later. Now, once again, if you don't agree, see me and I'll prove it to you.

Oh, and make sure you read the words below carefully; I have claimed many a souls of those who did not heed my warning... furious grin

This is not meant to be a list of who you are good with. This is proven fact calculated by the best players for years.

Mileena, Jax, Liu Kang, Kitana...the rest are insignificant LOL

But not everyone knows what they are talking about. You have, and I guarantee this, never played anyone in MK2 who was worth a damn if you think ANYONE but Mileena Jax and Liu Kang are top tier. TOP TIER. Not potentially good through extreme precision and skill. TOP TIER. If you have played high level players and beaten the top tier characters with Reptile or something low tier, that's awesome, you are an amazing player, but that's a unique situation. I'm not going by what everyone else is saying, I have been witness to RECENT (within the past couple years) MK2 tournaments and Mileena still reigns supreme. It would take an amazing player using low tier to defeat even a mediocre Mileena. I myself play Capcom games all the time and refuse to use the top tier in the games and I can beat the top tier users 99% of the time, but that's a rare case and I still know who is and why they are top tier. Application and experience in the field VS just playing your friends.

The Definition of Top Tier/broken:

Characters in a game so powerful they can be used with the least amount of effort at the highest level of effectiveness, rendering the remainder of the characters difficult to play with in the highest level of gameplay against said top tier characters.

Your example of everyone being even contradicts everything that is known about these games. There are very few games where everyone is even, one I can think of is Marvel Super Heroes, but even that game has a select top tier, but it the closest to being even as any game that has ever been made by Capcom.

Reptile VS Mileena is like Gief VS Strider in MvC. An absolutely amazing Gief player MIGHT be able to beat a decent Strider. You have to understand the fundamental mechanics of games in general to see what people mean they talk about tier listings, I don't think you do, or, you are so amazingly good that tiers don't apply to you (again a unique and rare variable in the equation of competitive gaming).
