So I just finished up my round up of all of the characters excluding Goro(Who I’ll cave in and buy soon for MU purposes anyways) and I have to say I think I’ll be staying a Sub Zero main with a couple of fun pockets like Jason.
Other honorable mentions who nearly made the top spot are Balanced Kenshi, Brawler Cassie, Buzz Saw Kung Lao and Thunder God Raiden.
Sub does everything I need and everything is applicable online. Maybe if I were offline more I’d of picked Cassie but her hit confirms are impossible online, DF1 is so hard to confirm from online for me, always use Getaway Flip on block because I can’t see the block and don’t have the reflexes to input the Gunshot so early to compensate for the latency. Meh.
Sub has some neat OS’ as well. If you play Grandmaster as I do(And probably should be also) you can OS between EX Ice Burst on hit from B12 or Ice Clone on block. Very strong in the corner.
Still waiting for the day I find someone who has optimal damage online for when they hit me. I’ve all but stopped using breakers now, every time I get hit it’s for about 15% tops. PS4 MK players gotta step their damage game up, for instance I played a Raiden earlier who loved to do B2 a lot, apart from being minus frames to hell and back it rarely hit. When it did I was shocked and expected a good 40-50% chunk gone, I waited for the right spot to breaker out to see if he was gonna commit a bar or not(I was fine taking 28%ish for him to waste a bar) but to my surprise he just continually mashed B2 even on hit as I was on my ground bounce. So I didn’t even fear his damage and just let go of the block button for the rest of the game.
Synopsis - player match is mad whack. Come through with that Ranked Match patch already.
