I can't wait until this board stops being merely an outlet to b**** about the top tiers.

When the balance is the biggest dampener on the gameplay (except maybe hitbox issues) then it’s warranted.


Which it is not.

Last major I watched had 2 Kano's in top 8. You're bad, face it. No amount of complaining and nerfing will make you win more.


Kano isn't exactly defenseless. His command grabs are pretty good and he's at least, somewhat quick. If you had said Shao Khan or Dvorrah had made it, you might have had a valid point.


Buff those two then.

He does seriously need nerfed, his throws are rediculously better than most the roster, wake-ups are insane n if blocked some characters like Kitana can’t punish him, he needs a cool-down on his teleport punch, swinging spear attack needs serious adjustments. I bodied 5 in a row last night because I’m getting so used to fighting him, it’s becoming boring and they’re the same ones that will scream/curse if u have to use cheap tactics to keep up with them, I feel like I’m in a spoiled brat infested nursery when playing against them.

Kano isn’t nearly as bad as D’Vorah.
I would love to see you consistently beat a competent Scorpion who actually uses cancels with D’Vorah

Why do people use tournament play as arguments against character imbalance?

On a high level, sure, no character is unbeatable. That doesn't mean characters like Scorpion, Geras and Sonya are way too stacked in comparison to the rest of the cast.
I have nothing else to say

Yeah Scorpion is too good atm

I would make his teleport even more unsafe (-25 maybies) just so that the normal and ex mixup isn’t even a thing

And the teleport cancel needs to either have slight recovery or place Scorpion outside throw range

It’s just the teleport that’s BS. Everything else is fine

The top level, ie tournament play, is where balance matters. Below the top level, it matters less because player skill is a much bigger factor. When you're talking about top level, that's pretty much the peak of player skill so balance comes into the equation a lot more. Stuff that may be perceived as broken at lower levels of play may not actually be broken at higher levels when the players are much more skilled and know how to deal with it.

Take Sub-zero for example, a lot of lower level players would complain that his 50/50s are broken but SonicFox demonstrated that the overhead can actually be blocked on reaction at high levels, making him much less of a problem.

I can catch Scorpions off guard using Kollector, but it would be nice to see some other characters instead of Scorpion/Sonya


I use 6 now....Baraka, Noob, Jade, Kitana, Liu and Shang.

But teleport is so easy to block...you just KNOW they're gonna use it no matter what. So even right when the first round begins I'm holding block.
