17.Scorpion

18.Frost

19.Kung Jin

20.Jacqui

.............................

21.Fujin

22.Sub-Zero

23. Cassie

.............................

24.Reptile

25.Goro

26.Li Mei

.............................

27. new (Lady from the Dream Realm-Kronika)

28. new (Kano's son)

29. new (Elder God)

30. new (Elder God/Monster)

31. Pre order: Kotal Kahn

.............................

.............................

DLC:

Pack 1:

1. Shang Tsung

2. Cyrax

3. J. Cage

4. Ashrah

5. Guest 1

6. Guest 2

.............................

Pack 2:

1. Mileena

2. Baraka

3. Ferra/Torr

4. Erron Black

5. Guest 3

6. Guest 4

.............................

.............................

Of course, this would mean that NRS would have worked a little more to make a roster of at least 30 characters. We would have gotten a game with 43 characters by the end (39 from the Mortal Kombat franchise). I know I left out a few good characters, but would you be satisfied with this?

.............................

Cause from what it's shaping up now, we already know 10 characters, the rest are Liu Kang, Kitana, Kung Lao, Johnny Cage (seen in a video in the background), Cassie, at least 2 more kombat kids, Erron Black (leaked by achievements data), Kotal Kahn, Jade, Noob, Smoke, Mileena (too requested not to be), probably Shang Tsung, maybe Jax, maybe Kenshi, maybe Nightwolf, 2-3 more new characters, Shao Kahn. I'm already past the 25 number. So about 5 of those will go to DLC.

.............................

Rain, Reptile, Shinnok and Cyrax are out at least until DLC in my opinion. They have icons for modifiers in a way none of the other characters have. That will not be Rain in the konquest picture. (I know, it sucks, I want Rain too, he'll probably make DLC though).

.............................

No 3D era characters, which sucks. People are pushing for Fujin and Havik so I think they'll be DLC. But definitely no Reiko, Tanya, Frost, Drahmin, Ashrah, Onaga, Daegon, Taven or Sareena. Whom I have been expected for 12 years (since 2007's Armageddon, last time I played them).

.............................

.............................

Edit: It's not my PERSONAL favourite roster, it's a roster I made taking into consideration various plotlines: a Netherrealm Alliance, Raiden attacking Outworld and Kotal Kahn asking the Elder Gods to defend it in Mortal Kombat, Takeda and Kenshi waking up Taven to get revenge on Daegon, Rain son of Argus and -secret-, Mileena after death, Noob-Havik alliance...
.............................

I don't like Jacqui or Kung Jin or the kombat kids that much but I had to put them in cause I understand NRS won't ditch them after just 1 game.
.............................

I know I left out some great characters (and I'm sorry, I know Sindel or Tanya have fans, me too), but I still think it would have been much better than the current roster of MK 11 with Kano and Sonya (and shaping up with Jax, Sheeva or Stryker too). I mean, they're fine characters too, I love All MK characters, but they should have been NPCs.

............................

If you want, from the DLC packs, replace Ashrah with Sareena, Johnny Cage with Kenshi or Ferra/Torr with D'vorah. They have rather similar importance in the story.

.............................

Well, if you have time to watch the story:

No thanks. Nitara, Taven, Daegon, Fera/Torr, Li Mei, Jacqui and Cyrax don’t do a lot for me. Im quite happy with the roster so far but some of the design choices seem a bit questionable.

No, I do not. I do not know why so many people are hung up on some of the old 3d era characters. I may be in the minority, but I thought a lot of them were horribly executed. There are a few with exceptions, Kenshi, Fujin etc...

Groan.

I dearly hope that everybody who thinks they can do a better job at the roster doesn't decide to start their own vanity thread to show it off. It's just not good for the sanity. Besides, there's already a whole Kreate-a-Roster thread here:

I could do without Taven, Daegon, Ferra/Torr, Ashrah or Goro, so I’d personally replace them with Sareena, Kira, Kai, Mavado and perhaps another new character, but otherwise this looks fine to me. Good job, OP!

Because I really think I could do something with them. Jacqui I don't really like myself, nor any of the kombat kids (except Takeda), but I put them on the roster cause I know they're not gonna be ditched right after being introduced.

It's not my PERSONAL favourite roster, it's a roster I made taking into consideration various plotlines: a Netherrealm Alliance, Raiden attacking Outworld and Kotal Kahn asking the Elder Gods to defend it in Mortal Kombat, Takeda and Kenshi waking up Taven to get revenge on Daegon, Rain son of Argus and -secret-, Mileena after death, Noob-Havik alliance...

I know my favorite roster will never happen EVER!, but it would be something like this.

30 characters in the starting roster = perfect.

Unplayable new boss, much like Kronika.

Then for the roster:

From MK1: Liu Kang (With more dragon-abilities) / Kano (Smarter, much like the doctor in Kabals ending, uses machines much like Sonya Blade in X and 11) / Sonya (With living forcefield technology, much like the X-Men villian Unuscione) / Johnny (Not in love with Sonya, searching for Edenian immortality) / Scorpion / Raiden / Sub-Zero / Shang Tsung / Reptile

From MK2: Kung Lao (Evil, jealous on Liu Kang, corrupted by Shang Tsung) / Mileena / Kitana / Baraka / Jax / Jade (With dream-based powers) / Smoke (DLC. Enenra model)) / Kintaro (DLC. More like MK2, not like a kitten)) / Noob (Renamed Umbra)

From MK3: Sindel / Sektor / Cyrax (Special Forces) / Kabal (Evil) / Ermac (drained by Shang Tsung, and now his puppet of destruction) / Rain / Stryker (DLC, with light bombs, guns and other weapons, he trained in the Order realm) / Nightwolf (DLC, with werewolf variation) / Sheeva (DLC, with four swords, dancing into battle)

From MK3D: Tanya (with illusion magic) / Reiko / Havik (DLC) / Kai (DLC, with White Tiger pet) / Frost (DLC, evil) / Quan Chi (DLC) / Kenshi / Mavado (DLC, with Weapons from Takeda, suits him more) / Fujin (DLC) / Sareena (DLC, transforms into demonic form in variations, much like succubus)

From X: Kotal / Erron / D'Vorah / Ferra & Torr (DLC) / Kung Jin (DLC, eagle familiar just like Kai's tiger and Liu Kangs dragon, eyes of an eagle) / Skarlet (DLC) / Tremor (DLC)

New Faces: Plant Character / Metal character with magnetic powers / Tasia (DLC, code-name = Black Widow, with poison claws, male killer, dressed in black leather, with red/purple spots all over her back, much like a black widow spider)

NPC Roles: Taven, Daegon, Khameleon, Shinnok, Geras, Kronika, Shao Kahn, Goro,

FORGOTTEN FOREVER: Jacqui, Li Mei, Cassie Cage, Bo Rai Cho, Darrius, Meat, Mokap, Dairou, Blaze, Chameleon, Jarek, Shujinko,

Well, if you have time (cause it's pretty long), watch the MK11 story for the above posted roster on youtube. It's like the MKX story:

This.

I applaud and commend you for not being one of those fans who thinks a character should be immediately discarded because they're not as good as they could be. A character should be given the opportunity to be further developed.

They can never make the female combat kids better for me, and Li Mei must change so much, she would become another character all together.

Cassie Cage is just a character that makes me hate Sonya and Johnny, and I don't want that family bullshit in my games, the only way to make Jacqui cool is to continue her SKULL ENDING, being horrible changed by that skull she took from Kotal Kahn and now being able to control the plants around her, otherwise she is a very extremely boring and bland female jax Special boring forces horror that needs to die.
