**WEEK 9** STBL Show questions Thread!

WEEK 9 STBL Show questions Thread!!

Hello everyone… thank you all for watching and making each episode a success.

Week 9’s show will be next SUNDAY July 3rd. We are going to schedule to start at 7pm pacific, 10pm eastern again.

Please post all your questions here! This makes it easier for VULCAN to find to create our re-ordered thread for the show.
**If you need to post a question within 2 hours from the show start time, please put them in the new thread that Vulcan creates each week. If you post in this thread late we more than likely will not see your question.

Week 9, and all future shows will be open to any question about the game or about any character. Please feel free to ask anything from the most basic to the most advanced. WE WILL ANSWER EVERYTHING… unless we have covered the question in depth previously.

Thank you all for watching, see you next show!!

I just want to say thank you for all these great streams and the dedication you guys are showing to MK9. I know Shoryuken isn’t the the most active spot for MK but you guys are appreciated! I don’t know if my question can be answered… but basically I’m wondering whether or not you think Baraka will ever be viable at a competitive level in the future? The high levels of MK play revolve around fast block strings and Baraka is just so goddamned slow with everything he does. His only mixup is the low B+3,1 and the overhead 2,2,2+1 which you can see coming a mile away (the overhead is the last hit I think). I love Baraka but I feel like he’s going to remain shit tier until they speed his animations up or something. What do you guys think?

so, first i wonna say sorry to tom brady for some comments i had made about him a while back, and also wonna give a shout out to you silent, brady, everyone at tym, shoryuken,mku and trmk for keeping the scene alive, and also all the fans.

  • in the living guide, is the kabal section in depth? from watching online tony and michaelangelo especially i have learned some stuff, and also from what i know, just dont see what else there really could be because hes so bland.

-what do you see in future for kabal in terms of possible patches or fixes or if he is just fine now?

-what is there about kabal, if anything, that he has that nobody is taking proper advantage of?

-i feel that his kombo damage is low, but it is fair because i think he has a solid offense, but his DEFENSE against cross ups is terrible, and extremely aggressive players stop it all because of lack of frame advantage, what do you advise for cross up spammers/aggressive players?

-tell NRS to release kabal a dlc costume of his cybernetics costume from his ending, that **** is legit.

Can Tom Brady explain his tolerance for all these horrible match-ups being in the game?
To me it sounds silly that characters like Sub-Zero and Reptile who were good staple characters now have a 2-8 (or worse) matchup against some specific character.

Are there any characters you can choose without worrying about counter picks and having backup characters?

Hey Tom,

  1. What are some effective strategies against Noob in the corner to maintain momentum?
    For example, I dash block my way in and punish shadows from 1/4 screen distance, but it’s hard to get 22 pressure and avoid shadows while maintaining momentum. Is there any kind of spacing in which I can attack safely and be able to avoid at least the up shadow so I won’t get knocked down and still punish running shadow on block?

  2. Which ninja do you feel gets all the bitches in netherrealm? Smoke, Scorpion, or Sub Zero??
