Sorry lol but anyone that thinks Kabal or Ermac suck...have no taste for a good character. ha, ha

Honestly though, Ermac and Kabal are iconic Mk guys a lot more then other characters MK3 post....


I do hope to see at least Ermac come back, I'd like Fujin too but he probably won't be in it.

w/e..... MK still had good characters, they just needed ways to improve them to become more unique and independent

For example...... Tanya.

Tanya's abilities were fairly unique, except that in MKD, all of her moves were fire...... epic phail.

If they came up with something cool and phancy to make Tanya more unique, like...... sand. Sand would have been good. Or cover her in hundreds of satin rags which turn into sand, that's an idea, instead of the typical fireball. Her signature drill move was great though.

The thing she tied around her waist in her primary was great, however, they should have kept her pupils. Her hair was fine, but she also needed a better story as well.... oh, and a more unique weapon fighting style. Not the weapons themselves, just not the same moves as Jax's tonfas.

The problem with Midway is that they creat all these awesome characters, but they don't care about them as much as they care about their originals. Either they stop making new characters, or actually use these new ones to become more unique and fun, like how I jsut changed Tanya.....



OR.... here's one for Sindel.....

-A fighting stance in the air, which include no low attacks
-Hair slashes replacing punches or kicks
-An entire grab game with her hair (like Link from SSB)
-A more exotic And royal costume

There, three elements that can make Sindel into a more interesting character.


Anyway, since we all know Midway lacks the creativity to do that.... here the good characters from the previous games...

MK1: All of them except Lui Kang and Johnny Cage

MK2: Kitana, Mileena, Baraka. Reptile was just a palette swap, although it wasn't a problem until...

MK3: ....until here. Sindel, Cyrax, Kabal were good. Ermac and Jade had improved GREATLY in MKD.

MK4: Tanya and Quan Chi

MK5: Nitara, Kenshi, Li Mei. Here's where Reptile recived a good image, and it turned out fantastic imo.

MKD: Ashrah. As mentioned before, Ermac and JAde looked incredible in this game, a huge congrats to Miidway.

MKA: Shinnok



I jsut hate how Midway tends to get lazy and paste say, an "Amulet Staff" over the Kwan Do..... just.... wow. Shinnok was a huge improvement though.

As long as they include every character from MKI and MKII, I'll be happy. Obviously, I want the MKII boss to get in, lol.

All the characters suck after MKII.



I know you're trolling,but damn.
MK3 had Sindel,Kabal and the cyberninjas (each of whom is interesting in their own regard).
MK4 had Quan Chi,Fujin and Shinnok (yes,as fail as he was,he's a freaking fallen Elder God. By all accounts,he should have been by far and away the most epic villain in MK history.)
MKDA had Kenshi and Bo Rai Cho.
MKD has Havik,Hotaru and Ashrah (one of the few girls in the vidya (especially fightan vidya) who does not dress like a slut,so she gets points just for that). Havik alone excuses anything Midway has possibly done wrong in MKD. He's so full of pure,unadulturated FUCKWIN,I still can't believe he started out as Noob's alt costume.

LoL. I love how people interpret things on this forum, Most entertaining. I'll just replace the word Petition with Discussion. I never cared for MK3 much. As for the +, some of the later games have their moments. I like Ermac, and Kenshi's character premise is cool, But I'd prefer keeping it simple. MK 1&2 have perfect characters for this game. IMO

I didn't think they were lazy because of that dude, in fact that suits him very well. He's had that weapon since MK4 if you remember the storyline and renders of Shinnok

Very original and true to his original design if you ask me.

Just a side note, I believe Shinnok's impact was bigger in MK4 then in MKA but I understand everyone has their own preference dude

There are high odds that Kenshi will make the cut.

Boon said the favorites will be in the game, not the oldies. Besides, there are only a few characters cut out for this sort of game.

*signs in blood*

Bezou is my new friend now.

Anyone past 2 is really hit or miss. 3 had Ermac and Kabal which are great. 4...4 didn't have shit(Quan Chi is from Mythologies so it doesn't count) . And it gets even worse from there.

However I'm sure Quan Chi will make it in, because they like him and stuff.
Quan Chi isn't a bad character though.

Although I like Havik and Drahmin. and in A. MEAT!!
grin
Just as a joke character though.

I wonder what it's like to live in a world where calling yourself a Mortal Kombat fan makes sense even though you haven't liked anything they've done since 1993.
Seems kinda like wasting years of your life going to Super Mario message boards only to one day reveal "I really thought they dropped the ball after Donkey Kong. All those platformers with the mushrooms and pipes were a bad idea, man."

This whole thread is pointless because, it's really obvious that they are only going to use characters from mk1 and 2.

Count me out. Some of the greatest characters came in MK4 like Quan Chi, Shinnok, Kai, in MK5 Lei Mei, Hsu Hao in MK6 Dariou. Not to mention Ermac in UMK3.


Count me out of this dumb idea.

Quan Chi and Shinnok are awesome. And then there are new characters like Kenshi and Frost. So no, not all the characters after MK2 suck.

If the characters in games after MK2 weren't any good, then how in the hell did MK even get this far?
