Where is KP1????
04/17/2019 02:40 AM EST

Shouldn’t we know the contents of KP1 by now? Being the massive MK fan I am already pre-ordered the premium edition but with all this talk about Shinnok, Takeda, Nightwolf and the inevitable guest characters I am getting really nervous that I may have wasted my money on a disappointing Kombat Pack like last time.

Does anyone remember when they announced the DLC for Injustice and MKX?

The base game isn't even out yet, man.

I would personally recommend cancelling the preorder for the premium edition if you dont trust you'll like the DLC picks.

I personally always mix and match my DLC characters, only choosing the ones I like. In MKX that was cheaper because i did not get any guest characters.

With alot of the male ninjas out, if chameleon isn't in this kp1 then thats lame af. Scorpion already has enough chain variations to replace takeda, shao kahn has nightwolfs shoulder charge and shinnok is the most underwhelming mk boss of all time. I sure hope that isn't the kp1.

Speaking from personal history...

I was kind of cheesed off to learn Freddy Kruger was in MK9's KP, as I had no interest in guest characters, and felt duped into buying him after I'd already paid for the pack. BUT the value baked into MK9's Kombat pack basically made one of the characters free, so I could arguably shrug it off, since I'd have paid about the same anyway to buy the DLC piecemeal without Freddy.

I was then even more cheesed off in MKX when 50% of the Kombat Pack was revealed as guest characters, as I could no longer make that same justification I made w/ Freddy. Even with the baked in value of the Kombat Pack, now I was DEFINITELY paying for a character I didn't really want. I assumed it would be 1 tops, like MK9, and felt duped that I'd bought the whole pack, while only being interested in 50% of the characters. And I know I wasn't the only one who felt duped by the 50/50 split when NRS revealed it. BUT... I still wanted the other two, and all the skins... so again... I shrugged it off. (And I kinda like Predator, despite disliking guests, so I might have talked myself into him anyway.)

That said, I freely admit I've learned no lessons whatsoever, and still preordered the Premium Edition of MK11. I'm HOPING 3 (or god help us, more) of the 6 friggin' characters aren't guests this time... but we'll see.

Either way... I'm an MK fan, so I want that fancy steelbook yo. And even if I end up burned a third time... eh, I'll shrug it off again. This is like... $30 we're talking here, not a life savings.

I always get DLC characters on an individual basis.

I don't trust any development company to actually set out an entirely good set of DLC, especially not NRS. I'm hoping, giving there are four extra slots on the roster page on the official website, that it means four of the six DLC characters are actual MK characters. That would be great.

Yeah, I'm purchasing each DLC character separately. I refuse to shell out money for 4-6 fucking guest characters.

MK characters only, thank you.

This is a valid question. I thought MKX KP1 was announced prior to release. It'd be nice to know who you're shelling out extra money for if you order the premium edition.

You know what be great is they just keep guest characters out of the first and hopefully second kombat pack and if they must have guest characters, just make a guest kombat pack. That way we can buy kombat packs 1 and 2 free from these guests.

This is great for purists and I concur, but they'll do everything possible so people buy every kombat pack.

What I dislike is that even if you don't purchase the guest characters, you unfortunately still have to see their ugly mugs on the select screen. At least in MKX.

Hopefully that isn't the case in MK11.

I did get the premium. I always want to experience the whole game. I do agree the guest kharakters are lame. I almost always hate playing them. Predator was cool in mkx but leatherface was God awfull. I just hope we get some more mk kharakters this time arround.
