Powerup 2011 Tournament excerpt

Forgive my ignorance of how to make links clickable. :)

It's just a small segment, but it shows what Tom Brady meant about Sub-Zero being God-tier and some crazy Reptile combos.

Sub-Zero is my counter-pick so I got some good ideas from this video.

I watched quite a few matches from that stream on Justin TV. My mind was blown by Reptile players- incredible speed (thanks to the elbow dash) and massive combos.

Sub-Zero's pretty awesome too!

I hope that in the forthcoming tournaments there will be more variety regarding the characters. So far most players pick Reptile, Smoke, Ermac, Kung Lao and Liu Kang.

I don't think I've seen any tournament matches with Kano and Jax so far.

Love watching those highly skilled players play MK2011!

Ya thanks for posting. Really love how that Tom Brady guy uses Sub Zero, very tricky. Think I may have dismissed Sub too early, he really has a uniqueness to him thats fun to watch. And it looks like his battle damage doesn't scale down as much as other characters. thats awesome.

However I still think he would have trouble against a teleporter. Couldn't Smoke or somebody with that kinda move just teleport punch as Sub Zero was doing his ice clone or shooting his freeze projectile, seems these moves have a long start up time. Anybody know how Sub could counter that stuff?

You could. But that's what makes some peolpe great at this sort of game: the timing. He chooses the right time to use the right move and these guys are always second-guessing each other. (eg. he got caught with Lui Kang's xray through his clone first time. Next time he was waiting for it)
If you use the term "spam" I have no time for your argument.
