Well, at least they got this out of the way. If you squint hard enough, you can almost see a tiny bit of effort for her character design.

Hope she is is not featured on the Kombat Kast. She has got the most boring design so far in my opinion. Could not care about her inclusion at all.

I like her hair and face the most, for sure. The outfit isn’t the most exciting, but the same could easily be said about all the other special forces characters, at least as far as their defaults go.

Even then, this design is still light years ahead of her MKX design. I just hope her other outfits have more personality to them. Same goes for her move list this time around. I’m honestly kinda hoping they do a Kombat Kast on her because I’m really hoping to be impressed.

There was no point wasting a whole character slot on somebody no one wants, to begin with. At least I hope there is more difference between her, Cassie and Sonya this time.

At this point, I’m starting to get tired of seeing bashing on that same one character. Yeah, I get it, she’s boring so what? All we got from her so far was her new look (pretty gorgeous in my opinion) and one fatality. Maybe if more was shown from her, I’m sure someone would at least be give another chance.

The same can be said for someone who had no gameplay shown at all. (D’Vorah)

I like it. She actually looks like a black woman.

Hopefully her personality is less stale this time around, and her moveset is better. I'm really hoping for the best. lol

She looks like a sitcom character now. Unsure if that is an improvement or not over the "generic NPC soldier" look she had in MKX. She was as pointless and wasteful as Ferra/Torr. Still pissed off that she made it in over Rain two games in a row. Especially when Rain did more in the story of MKX than Jacqui and Ferra/Torr combined.

Seriously? Come on.

I know she wasn't that great in MKX, but be real. She's only been in one game, and you're calling her the worst character in the series? You don't even know what she's going to be like in this one. Are you seriously telling me that you expect her to be exactly the way she was in the last game?

Y'all seriously be tripping me out with this, man. Kung Lao has hardly had any substantial development since his inception in 1993, and y'all don't make a fuss about that. Scorpion didn't make a single major change in development until MKX, but he's a fan favorite. Get real.

Jacqui isn't nearly that bad. Y'all are trippin'.

To all the die hard fans of Jacqui, I'm truly happy that you guys got your girl. I'd also like to say that I'm sorry for all the constant hate you guys get on your girl. It must be frustrating to see almost the entire mk community hate on her.

She looks nice, much better than her MKX portrayal. Jacqui is far from being my cup of tea but all that loathing is exaggerated.

I know right. As one of "die hard" fans (whatever that means), I really want to see her chance to shine. But she probably won't have any gameplay revealed for a long time.

I mean, yeah...that’s Jacqui. I’m trying hard not to be judgemental, it’s just a photograph. I honestly hope she gets showcased on a Kombat Kast soon.

I feel the exact same way about her. I don't feel as annoyed that's she's in now with her better design, hopefully her play style is fun too. As you said I don't care much for Jacqui either, but constantly hating on her isn't gonna bring all your favorite characters into MK11. We should just wait and give her a shot when we see her gameplay.

I have to adjust the direction of my ire, then. It's not Boon's fault the fans want mediocrity. I have to blame the fans that think a character deserves a spot on the roster based on nothing more than a new face, hair style and skin tone. Sad. For me, I base characters on their backstory, their gameplay, and their costume design. That's it. In MKX, Jacqui was 0 of 3, though Shotgun was sort of decent in short spurts. Currently, she is 0 for 2 in MK 11, but let's hope her gameplay is drastically improved to justify taking a roster spot from numerous other MK characters.

Ok, first thing first- she's gorgeous. I like the fact they chose a darker skinned model for this version of the character and she looks like a REAL person. They did a GREAT job with the model/base for the character. HOWEVER- it sucks that it's all wasted on a very generic looking outfit and ultimately a dull character.

I think having a dark skinned black female character is awesome but I sure wish it wasn't wasted on Jacqui Briggs because that comes with a lot of baggage that I sadly don't see the character being able to survive for long.

That said, all the hate she's getting is quite ridicules and I could understand if most of it was coming from fans who favorites haven't made it in, but some people are griping and being so dramatic without it having anything to do with that and I'm like, really? Jacqui Briggs is a dull character, however, she's not a BAD character and I'd say if Jax, Sonya, and Cassie weren't already in the game doing what she's doing- she wouldn't be so redundant.

But let's not turn her into a punching bag just for lulz.

If you squint hard enough, you can almost see a tiny bit of effort for her character design.

Doesn't take any squinting to see the effort. If her design were any more elaborate, it would be overdone.

Earthrealm characters -- especially good guys -- are always facing an uphill battle with these things. Nearly all of the most fervently requested characters are inhuman, and the ones who look human at least get to dress like Outworlders. If my time on this forum has taught me anything, it's that when most people talk about an "interesting character design," what they actually mean is "looks like a monster" or "dresses like an Outworlder."

Some folks just openly admit that they're biased against Earthrealmers in Mortal Kombat. I suspect that Jacqui and Cassie would catch a lot less flak for having a similar costume design and coming from the same background if they weren't visibly human -- like Sektor and Cyrax. Or if they could be as exotic as Kitana and Jade.

Maybe they need to give Jacqui some badass tattoos. It's not much, but what else are you going to do to make a boring dumb human stand out? Put a hat on it?

Shit, Kung Jin had one of the most characteristic human designs in MK history, and people still hated it.

I think that's a vast assumption that completely shuts out other valid opinions. Not every one who dislikes Cassie's and Jacqui's outfits just hate Earthrealmers. Sounds like you're boiling it down to such a straight and narrow point of view just so you can dismiss it.

I LOVED Cassie's default look in MKX and thought her costume was pretty cool and that was VERY in line with her character, her background, and her realm. However, I hate her look in this game. It's not because "OMGZ MOAR MONSTERS!!1111"- I just think it's disappointing.

Yeah but a character is more than just story. Scorpion and Kung Lao have cool designs and cool moves. They also have stand out gimmicks that are associated with them, such as the kunai and bladed hat. Jacqui does not have of this. Jacqui is bland, has no standout features to discern her. Her moveset, story, look and fatalies are incredibly forgettable and lacklustre. There is nothing about her that stands out or is impressive.
