Kenshi deserves to win this. To say it would be refreshing for someone who is not a ninja to win this would be an U.N.D.E.R.S.T.A.T.E.M.E.N.T!!

Kitana.

Cassie's individuality doesn't even come close. The bladed fans are one of the most iconic weapons in the MKU. Would even venture to say in all of the fighting game genre.

As much as I used to like Kitana, I honestly hated her in MKX. Or rather, what they did with her story-wise. As for her gameplay, I can honestly take it or leave it at this point. I kinda hope that her and Liu are both unplayable sub-bosses in the next game.

I went with Cassie. She feels fresh, unique and they wrote her really well. She has the potential to be the next big hero (if she's not already there) and while her move list isn't quite there yet, it shows some signs of promise.

I certainly couldn't fault anyone for voting Kitana, but I went with Cassie.

Ahhhhh I don't know! I like them both! I'm trying hard not to vote for kharacters simply for iconic and nostalgic reasons cuz I don't think it's fair to the quality of the individual kharacters. I'll decide my vote after I wake up.

If we took Kitana's tenure out of the equation and only looked at what she means to the franchise right now, then she still has a lot of story involvement with her position in the Netherrealm. Her being queen and distrust of Raiden show nice growth of character. She is decent to play, not really my style but I get why people like her. Can't say I like her design in this iteration either. The tournament is the only one I ever pick, but again it's personal preference because I've seen others love her designs.

Cassie to me is exactly what the next generation should be. I can defiantly tell her from the rest of the cast, even against Johnny who has a similar personality. However, her design is rather bland in the body suit and street clothes. I love playing as her. Even though she is a mixture of styles, she still feels completely different than them. All this topped off with the fact she looks to be this era's top hero, I have to go with her.

If I personally liked Kitana more, then it might have gone differently. I just feel meh about Kitana's appearance in this game, where as Cassie has had one of the best debuts ever.

Is this even worthy of a vote?

Kitana is an amazing tragic character. Cassie Cage is a modern Miley Cyrus.

Voted for Cassie. She's an amazing addition to the roster and the first character to have such a distinct personality. I like Kitana too though.

I went with Cassie.

Even though I enjoy Kitana's gameplay I've found her to be rather bland personality wise. Cassie on the other hand has great gameplay AND personality, and just overall a fun character. I hope she gets some decent alts down the line.

Kitana is so lane to me right now, always been but now really. Forced storyline, terrible gameplay, move stealing since her debut, and fugky huge cheeks and face. Went with Cassie, who i don't care for.

I like what they did with Kitana, instead of being the damsel in distress princess like she usually was in the old timeline, she did have her moments though. But now she's the queen of hell, I mean is that cool or what? I've always wanted an evil Kitana. Her costumes were great for the most part, except for the Catwoman costume. It's also cool to see Liu Kang as the evil king instead of always the generic hero.

I like Cassie, I like that they have the "new generation" still defending Earth against the evil realms.

I chose Kitana though because I'm big on seniority.

Kitana I guess. Not a fan of either to be honest, but Kitana isn't quite as annoying as Cassie. I'll admit this is the best she has looked too. Really like her Queen of the Netherrealm costume.

Shao Kahn did nothing wrong

Dammit, I missed Taven vs Kenshi. Would have voted for Kenshi.

In this one? Kitana, I guess.

Easy choice. Cassie.

I like Kitana's primary costume and that is it. Playing as Kitana is like playing with one arm behind the back. She only has one overhead in her moveset, b2 and it does not lead into anything. She has no overheads in her comboes. The only other overhead is the glaive throw from the air in Mounrful which no one uses that since you lose the fan throw. If you want to win against Kitana just keep blocking low and punish. Rinse and repeat. She has such a difficult time opening up a character. Any player with a decent defense will easily beat you with any character. I never face Kitana online. Her acerbic and insolent attitude is annoying since she does nothing except get beat, ironically enough against Cassie.

Cassie is way better than Kitana in my opinion. Her variations are great and she has some cheap ways to get easy damage. I like Hollywood the best. Air Akimbo is way cooler than anything Kitana has got. I just wish they had gone with her original hair concept.

I agree that Kitana's gameplay is not as strong in MKX. Kitana lacks options to open other players up. Therefore, Kitana players must focus on zoning other players, especially those who like to rush you down with easy combos to execute but difficult to block.

However, with a lot of practice and patience, Kitana can be a formidable opponent. My main has always been Kitana in every MK game where she appeared, so I was not going to abandon the Princess. With all the practice I've had, I can easily dominate any character that doesn't have a teleport. Those with a teleport are more difficult to fight against but I can still take most opponents out.

Kitana could have easily been left out of MKX since her role in the story wasn't major. Fortunately, NRS are very smart and they know that they can't leave such an iconic and popular character out.

Kitana is a legend in Mortal Kombat, and Cassie is newbie. Of course Kitana gets my vote.

This ongoing match is the first in a series on 5 super interesting matches I was looking forward to in round 2:

*Kitana vs Cassie; popular classic vs the new leader;
*Reptile vs Scorpion: popular classic ninjas (Scorpion being more popular but also more hated);
*Kung Lao vs Mileena: also popular classics, both looking better than ever and playing better than ever?
*Kotal Kahn vs Shao Kahn: new Kahn vs old Kahn (Shao doomed?)
*Sonya vs Erron: popular classic vs hot new face.

Then comes a one-match break in hype matches as far as I'm concerned (Skarlet v Noob Saiboit). Don't think this one will be close.

Then starts a new series of 4 matches I'm really looking forward to:

*Raiden vs Quan Chi: two powerhouses. Quan Chi's chances aren't looking good though as the fanbase seems to be tired of him and it seems MKX Raiden redeemed the character after the debacle in MK2011;
*Shinnok vs Johnny Cage: will Shinnok get his revenge for the chapter one of the story mode?
*Fujin vs Tanya: both were requested a lot for DLC characters, Fujin maybe even more. Tanya made it, Fujin did not (not yet, at least). Does being playable present a significant advantage for Tanya?
*Reiko vs Shang Tsung: Will Reiko's well-received role in the comics be enough to help him beat Shang? Or do the fans miss the old sorcerer too much?

Exciting!

She's more of a punish type character in MKX. You're essentially always waiting to catch the opponent with something and then make something happen. Unfortunately her moves are so slow that it doesn't really work.

I've never been a huge fan of Kitana. Her concept is good but her gameplay and designs have fallen flat in spite of her potential.

But I really like her in MKX. Great fun to play, and great design (Jingu and her revenant skins are awesome). She didn't leave much of an impact in story mode but I'm really interested to see where she goes in the next game because of where she ended up.

Cassie did not impress me at all. Too much like Johnny and Sonya, who are superior characters. I don't like her personality, I don't like her design. Remove Cassie.

Kitana because she has had more involement in the series than Cassie ever has. I honestly think that Kung Jin would've been a better leader.
I feel so alone, gonna end up a Big ole pile of them bones.
