Skarlet is beautiful but deadly.

So when I first bought the game. Being a guy who likes to use female characters and I didn't see a problem with that seeing as in Final Fantasy games, they have you use female characters a lot such as Yuna or Lightning.

Skarlet was my first choice and I was deeply impressed on how good of a fighter she was and I really enjoyed her combos. I did move around with other characters such as Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Noob, Shao Kahn, Kitana, and the other characters from story mode.

But when doing the Living Towers and the Ladders. Skarlet is my first choice because I get the most fun out of her. But mostly I just fell in love with her design and costumes. Mainly her look from Story Mode. I think the more I use her, the more skilled I've gotten using her as a character and she really has made the game extremely fun for me.

What does everyone else think of her? Do you use her or no?

Skarlet really did a 180 turn on me this installment. I really didn't care too much for her in MK9 for one reason or another. She didn't click with me. I feel NRS did such a good job with her redesign and moveset though and she's beginning to be my second most used character in 11.

I just hope this doesn't hurt a Nitara return in the possible future.

Shao Kahn did nothing wrong

Yeah, I wasn't a big fan of her in MK9 either. But when I saw her redesign in this new installment and her new setup. I was pretty interested in trying her out. I used D'Vorah and Mileena a lot in MKX.

Than once I bought the Mortal Kombat 11, I started using Skarlet consistently, than I was sold by what she could do. But I didn't let that wall me off from using the other characters to. Once I did get a taste for all of the other characters combos and tried them out and was able to do some of their combos and Sub-Zero's freezing skills and earned Frost. I went right back to using Skarlet. With her I was actually able to win far more in the Living Towers than I did with Sub-Zero or Noob and don't get me wrong, those are good characters. But I wasn't as accustom to using them as I was using Skarlet.

I even put time into using Frost, but I just didn't do well with her at all and I had the want and desire to be really good with her in the game. But I just didn't succeed in the way I did with Skarlet's skill setup in the game.

And it's not because I'm just good with Skarlet, I just have always found her character very interesting since MK9. In MK9 I thought she was just another Mileena. But now they've changed the story to where she was just some poor orphan girl that was starving in Outworld and that Shoa Kahn took an interest in her and trained her as a deadly blood witch.

She looks beautiful in this game , but I am still not that into her gameplay.

The characters just look amazing in this installment.

It took me a while to start doing really good combos with her. I wasn't good with her yet. It took a little time. I believe that I play her better than the AI mode does. Because if I put her on AI mode in Living Towers, than she loses. But if I play her manually. I almost always win. However I've run into a brick wall with the Gauntlet. They have OP Shao Kahn in the ring and he can kill you in 2 hits with his hammer. Very frustrating.

Pick konsumables that can stun like Cyrax's net, Kung Jin's arrow, Bo Rai Cho's fart etc. Stay away from him when he has armor. As soon as he loses the armor he is vulnerable. Stun him with one of your konsumables and do your kombo and back out again when he has armor. Repeat till you finish him.

On topic, I think she looks amazing. Her skins and her gear is awesome, however, just like ErmaSco, I'm not into her at all for some reason.

I see Skarlet being more in to haematology than Blood Magik.
