Ok, not going to paint everyone with the same brush, so I'll say the "typical " Scorpion player attitude is teleport, teleport, juggle, demon dash, low string start ad nauseum , win, act like they're the greatest thing since meat met bread.

Just had two matches with a Scorpion. He did all the things mentioned above in the first round. 2nd round was mine. At this point I realize he has a mic, because he hollers out, "Oh come on! " Now realizing that defeat is a distinct possibility, he ramps up the aforementioned strategy and gets a flawless victory... Then begins to gloat. "oh, got a perfect!"

So, I request a rematch, and he's eager to oblige . I get both rounds, no tie breaker this time, at which point he hollers out, "bi*ch". LoL. I've played some fighters with toxic communities, but this particular game is the worst. Close 2nd would be killer instinct, followed by Mkx

Scorpion players are just mediocre spammers who are carried by an easy mode character.

I've yet to fight one who played smartly with all the tools available to them.

I think "typical Scorpions" are fairly easy to beat now, especially if I counter with Noob. My problem is going up against good players that play him, it's quite frustrating. One mistake when he has flaming spear, and that damage...

Scorpion players do generally love to send hate mail, teabag and such, yes.

I had four people in a row switch to Scorpion after losing to me yesterday. God, tele cancel is insanely dumb. The fact that it costs defensive rather than offensive bar makes it way too easy for him to get his offense started off of it.

This happened to me yesterday. Switched from Baraka to Scorpion after three losses.

I have few issues with the teleporting now. I'll get hit by it occasionally, but not enough to lose. It's usually what makes

Them switch to the low/high mix up combos and demon dashes. He has a lot of tools, and effective ones at That

Scorpion is literally a free wins character.

I can't tell you how many times I curbstomped a player, only for them to pick Scorpion and then they're suddenly untouchable.
I have nothing else to say

People crying about someone using a character is probably the saddest thing I see on here. Boohoo someone picked scorpion and used his special moves that are in the game and I lost waaaahhhh. People playing as scorpion are not impossible to beat and yet everyone here acts like they are.

You must have trouble reading and comprehending. No one said Scorpion is unbeatable. I've destroyed my share.

Everyone knows he's top tier with a plethora of options. He's a braindead character; easy to use, low risk, high reward. When you factor that in with the attitude of the people using him, you can see where topics like this come from.

You sound like a Scorpion player TBH.

@Mechani11Kong

You seem to have trouble reading too. This isn't about me losing or winning. This was about the general attitude of players who use this specific character. The point being, the character is good, but the player isn't necessarily so. The is an observation of typical scorpions over the last month and a half. Tea bagging, trash talking, toxic as all get out players who have this one character in common.

But hey, if all you got out of this was some cliched anime tripe, whatever.
