Boon lied with this....

Frost (While I love her) and Jacqui are in the game probably, but Fujin, Havik, Rain, Reiko, Sindel, Noob Saibot and Smoke aren't... those were probably the most requested characters ever...

Why does anyone still take anything Ed Boon says seriously at this point?

This.

Besides, I'd file this under "no shit", since Boon has a clear preference for the trilogy era characters.

Well, to be fair, back in the days when we didn't knew MKX's Kombat Pack 1 content, we were told that it will have "2 classic MK fighters". And guess what, turned out they are Tanya and Tremor.

So maybe not all hope is lost for post-MK3 chars this time as well.

I’m starting to get the feeling that the roster is larger than 25 spots.

there was a leak that mentioned NRS was being smart about hiding roster spots by informing some people of different characters to see which were leaked.

I could see NRS having different 25 spot builds of the game for play testers and the like so that any leaked information is never fully accurate and they could strategically debunk leaks by introducing a character that was not part of the leaked “build”.

This is kind of wishful thinking but NRS was so good about keeping mk11 a secret this time I am not putting anything past them.

Really hoping we get Goro and Shang Tsung. Both were major players in the past, would love to see their dialogue with Shao Kahn prior to a match. If Shang Tsung makes it in hopefully he can morph freely again, and hopefully Goro actually does something in story mode this time around.

People need to remember, Boon is not taking leaks or crazy online fans into account when he says these things. Just speaking to the general public. Also, really wonder how those meetings go for choosing characters. I could see a Derek or Boon sabotaging and mocking the hell out of even an attempt to bring up Havik, Fujin, Moloch, Sheeva etc.

Because Boon has a very boring and basic taste in characters, Scorpion and Bo Rai Cho are his favorites, like wtf

I know a lot of people have requested Frost on twitter so her being included is actually him listening to the fans. That being said there really is no need for her, she's just a gender bent sub-zero so she brings nothing new. I'd much rather Rain, Fujin, Noob or Shang were in for sure over her.

I still believe Shang and Fujin are in. The actor ho played Shang in the movie hinted that he is playing Shang in the game. I mean just look at his Twitter account https://twitter.com/chtofficial, the man is promoting MK11 like nothing else haha. He said there will be fan favourites in the game, and more classics, so.. like I have stated before, there is more to the roster than meets the eye.

Ed boon also said that there will be a "famous"person in the game besides Ronda.

Ed Boon is a stupid cuck who's full of shit. Dyke'Whorah fan-favorite?! In which universe?! So pissed of that he included this bug bitch instead of Tanya. Fujin, Reiko & Havik are THE TOP 3 most requested male characters since MKX and Sareena & Li Mei are also top female characters requested too and yet it's a crime for them all not to be included in the base roster judging from the recent leak. Who knows if they are going to be in DLC considering how he loves to shove useless & stupid guest characters in the game who don't belong in the first place.

^^^ Yup, this is exactly the kind of snarling, ungrateful "mkfan" that the NRS team is invested in making happy. I'm sure that attitude will get you everything you want and nothing you don't.

Lots of people liked D'vorah and she had a strong competitive presence. If you think Tanya deserved the slot more, tell that to the fans who want to see more monsters and less humans, of which there are plenty.

It's kind of weird that you would pick Tanya over D'vorah anyway, since Tanya being a consort to both Mileena and Rain makes her more worthy of your crude nickname for D'vorah than D'vorah is.

The only reason why Dyke'Whorah was brought back is because of that tournament player HoneyBee and bug cunt has like 5 fans ( you being one of them) compared to Tanya who is actually better than her in every single aspect. Reality check, in MKX she stole Tanya's original MK4 role so she's very far from being original, other than being disgusting insect. And about my ''attitude'', well, i don't sugar-coat anything. My opinion is raw so don't be mad/butthutt when it's not what you want to hear.

Uh huh. Not terribly interested in riding this carousel again after putting up with the Nuck-nyuck account for a week. Just gonna say that your trolling isn't making me mad or butthurt so much as bored.

My only point is that the attitude is probably doing more to hurt your preferred characters' chances of getting in than helping. Obnoxious fans already cost us fightable NPCs, which was a nifty compromise for getting some characters some extra participation points if they're not on the roster. If your goal is just to keep antagonizing and making things worse, which it probably is for all I know, then you're on the right track.

Hmph...i remember being very vocal about Tanya for MKX during that time or as you would describe it ''obnoxious'' and voila, Tanya succesfully got in! Though i agree about fightable NPCs to some extent.

Tanya was in the first DLC pack and NPC fightable, so she was likely already in development early on. Did that have anything to do with complaints from obnoxious fans who caterwauled about her being missing from the launch roster? Did their opinions carry any more weight than the requests from people who showed enthusiasm for their favorite characters without getting all frothing rabid about it? I can only shrug.

A stopped clock can still be right twice a day.
