Why isnt Kano used more?
07/31/2014 07:34 PM EST
Idk what it is but even though i do like Kano i just dont seem to use him that much. He has quick projectile.... His upward canon ball is really fast (must be like 6-8 frames) and i think it is safe as well (cant be punished on block i dont think). He is basically a Raiden killer in mk9 like 9-1 match in Kanos favor (no joke). His B+1,1,2 seems pretty damn safe on block as well (and 212 string is also safe i think against most chars at least). I was just half way paying attention to matches mainly just doing Kanos B+1,1,2 as a combo starter experimenting with different strings, and everytime it was blocked i would just upward canon ball right away while my opponent most times would try attaclking after blocking the starting string, but they would get hit every time! And if they blocked the upward canon ball as well then almost every time i would just grab or block whatever they try to do or jump around and repeat lol.

Anyways i think Kano just might be a bit underrated. He has a lot of good about him so i dont get why i hardly see him used? Really what is so bad about Kano?

Lol really? Would.if i could. You really think just zoning with Sindel could stop me even when using a char like Kano that i have little experience with? Zone game is practically all Sindel has and im a master at getting around zones against any char. You wouldnt be able to keep me away. So then you try to do actual combo but my blocking is solid son. I know how every char hits with their moves. Blocking you will be a peice of cake. And you really think shes fast enough to not get hit by Kanos up canon ball? I dont think so.

Im not like most people, im actually a high lvl player that has taken on and beaten multiple tourny players like some guys youd see at evo. Only reason i dont go to evo myself and probably finish at least top 8 is because im poor and cant afford to go....

Anyways seriously like your only chance against me with sindel would be if you catch me when im rusty. In a serious match i wouldnt use Kano just fyi. And you imply Kano sucks? Yeah and he sucks in mk3 as well.... Not like it was years later til he got known to be one of the best in mk3.... Not like same story with Mavado in mkda.... My point is that sometimes one of the best chars gets underrated early on and then it takes years til the truth is realized. Now im not saying Kano is one of the best in Mk9 but i do think he is very underrated kinda like how sektor was or is underrated.

Kano definitely has some good tools, but a lot of his special moves are unsafe. It's good that he has his Up Ball, which can be for a good wake up. One thing that hurts him is that his overhead attack (b + bp) has a slow start-up.

Most people are just Kano haters and don't want to admit he is better than most give him credit to be

Probably because he doesn't have some cheap stun move scrubs can use over and over again, and also probably because he's not a ninja.

I don't know. He just looks boring to me. Like some laid off dead beat drunk dude with a eye beam.

Because the cannon ball move isn't b,f,4. It would be a HELL of a lot simpler to do this as a combo-ender. Why did they change it from MKvsDC? They did so many things right in that game.

They took his eye laser away.

These are the only things wrong with Kano in MK9.

I think the problem is that, while Kano is a series icon, he isn't most people's favorite. The ninja characters get used more than most characters simply because it's a popularity contest.

Now that I think about it, i'm not really sure. He's a pretty good character. I guess people just don't like him. I think he's pretty kool. smile
