I do think Shao Kahn is a little underrated tbh

What was his reasoning on stream for putting the Kahns in A?

Shao:

(The stuff I agree with)
-d4 is amazing (+15 on hit)
-F3 is a 10 frame mid, which leads into a safe 20% string. (And he didn't even cover the huge cancel frames on it).
-Long range advancing sweep, leaves you right next to them, only -2 on block, probably the best sweep in the gene
-F4 is +6 on block and leaves them in throw range and F3 range
-Easy 30% off any starter
-Awesome jump normals that can A2A for 30%
-Reversal throw KB leads to 50% in the corner
-d2 best uppercut
-db1 amazing AA
-db4 safe on block as leads to meterless damage in the corner

(The stuff I disagree with)
-He thinks dark priest is OP, but he only goes over why it's good AFTER it's activated, which is obvious (the damage increase to throws is pretty crazy. 200 instead of 140). He never once mentions the fact that there is literally no safe way to activate it. Who cares if it's good if you can't even activate it without getting punished. He thinks you can activate during a "zoning war" which to me shows his lack of experience using it against most of the roster. Any character with a teleport can full combo punish you on reaction.

Kotal:

-f3 really good
-command grab throw loop (??? not sure what he meant by this. Kotal's command grab throws them to the other side of the screen. Maybe he meant normal grab).
-best movement
-really good jump ins
-very solid neutral
-safe buttons
-KBs on both throws
-Hard to play. Have to play him really linear and lame. Poke people to death.
-He's not bad but there are just much better characters.

He said there's no reason to play A tiers because the S tiers are so good


Thanks a lot dude, I watched rooflemongers vid on the Kahns the other day and it's improved how I play Shao a lot, I've been using his actual good stuff more and the bad stuff less whereas before I didn't know the difference and this explanation you've showed me confirms what was said in the vid I watched about them pretty much. I still suck but I'm keen to improve this games got me hooked on fighting games I think I'll probably try others out as well now. Always been on the fence about fighting games and I'm enjoying this one a lot (hate the modifiers in ToT but that's it really) 😊

Lmao. Sorry but sonya is not the best character in the game. Extremely predictable and unsafe on a lot of her strings. Erron+Geras>>> maybe in a pro setting ? But in general online matches not a chance.

Are Scarlet and Kabal that good though? And Sub Zero that bad?

You should've seen the nasty s*** he was showing with Skarlet when he did the tier list stream. I posted the link above.

Sub zero is S tier at low-mid skill levels because most people can't block his overhead on reaction, but once you get up to the pro level he becomes trash because everyone can just block it.

Hah of course not. He's my main and I'm pretty good with him is all. I'm pretty sure this furry guy probably plays more than I do though.
