Characters You Are Surprised to Enjoy in MK11 (For Me: Jax!)
05/19/2019 03:06 PM EST

Are there any characters you are surprised by enjoying to play in Mortal Kombat 11?

Today I decided to play for a while as Jax - and I’m surprised to say here, he’s absolutely fantastic for me. While I thought his face was a little cooler in X (the beard; actually MKX was the beard MK, looking back), he is more than acceptable here. His outfits are pretty dope; his gameplay is fun and effective; and his fatalities? Oh man.

His fatalities are among the best I’ve seen.

How about you guys, have you found yourself playing as somebody you did not expect to?

It's Jax for me as well. I've always liked him, but not as much as in MK11. I've spent the majority of my time playing as him, it's so satisfying.

Sad about Kenshi missing MK11. He's my 2nd favorite character.

But to answer OP's question, I guess Jade. Don't really play any characters that I wasn't planning on playing beforehand so yeah.

Skarlet and Cassie Cage are two I'm using constantly. I feel I was always gonna start using Skarlet since her initial reveal but Cassie is someone I never expected to play as. Both are great.

Definitely Scorpion.

He has been and remains my least favorite character in the series, yet I do find myself enjoying playing with him in this game. This is likely entirely due to the customization feature of the game. I am able to alter him as I see fit, and thus I am playing with a Scorpion I actually prefer.

I am not against further development of any character, even ones I hate, so I when I saw an opportunity to improve Scorpion (at least superficially), I took it.

For me it would have to be Sonya I have NEVER played Sonya in any MK game but like Jax she is fast fluid and hits like a truck. Playing her Noob and Kung Lao so far

Kano. He was my 2nd main in MK9 (the only time I was ever interested in him up until that point). I skipped him entirely in MKX. His design and gameplay were awful. But in MK11, he’s really fun to use and I like his primary design. Albeit, it’s not MK9 Kano, but I am enjoying him again.

Scorpion from the beta on, I never even expected to like.

Geras, I felt was wack until I started getting to grips with VERY neutral gameplay in general.

The saga will continue as I've taken to hidden random selection in kasual matches.

Scorpion - despite being the flagship character of the series, I've felt that he has always been rather "meh". However, in MK11 I find him to be the best he's ever been.

Sonya - I rarely played as Sonya in the past, but she is incredibly versatile in MK11. Now if only you could turn off that f'ing Rhonda Rousey voice....

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

Jacqui Briggs is more fun than she was in MKX.

I'm surprisingly enjoying everyone though. I spent the time to go through each character and customize 2 loadouts I enjoy for each, and now I can use Random Select while playing with friends if I want to be thrown a curveball. I wish Random Select would actually lock into a Character/Variation though, instead of allowing you to choose or back out. It's Random Select - just surprise me! :)

I agree with the Sonya mentions here too, I like her style. Cool punch and kick combos, fast, she has the pink ray thing that’s classic. Never was much of a Sonya player but I like her now

Its like with Jax I want to add: I didn’t care about Jax until MK3. Then the PS2 era happened and I thought he was just lame. He had a big gold chain and backwards hat... it was so 2000s cliche

Now this era I’ve liked him, especially in X and now really in 11.

You guys are making me want to play more Scorpion I’ve been toying around with Sub-Zero more (I got his red “Mythic” deal for time crystals)
