There's a tower up called war for the War God and Shao Kahn is the final character on that tower. One of his skins is called God of Warfare... Mk Deception claimed that he and Raiden are the same species. He's a god. And yet, Shao Kahn considered Kronika to be a legend. Raiden knew who she was, didn't he? Or am I mistaken there?

I've seen people say Liu can't beat Raiden, but it's perfectly acceptable for Kitana to beat Shao Kahn? Apparently, some people on the staff understand the characters'traits and others don't.

You're gonna love when Sindel comes out.
Welcome to Gamefaqs. They finally have an edit button.

I just assume the lore is flexible and expect minor changes from game to game.

I would love for it to be more consistent though.

They've gone the way of Dc Comics "f*** Continuity" mindset. Fitting since both companies are owned by WB.

What's worse is the inconsistencies are happening in the same game. He's literally being referred to as a god in some places, but in the story he's just a hired thug for Kronika and a way for Kitana to get a boost

Lore is the least of their problems.

The problem with DC is that none of the writers respect each others work. Everyone does their own thing. That is what editors are supposed to be for but who knows what is going on over there.

Its ridiculous. Its like no one reads these scripts before signing off on it. NRS can be so bush league at times.

Too much effort required to think and grow established lore.

They always have these great ideas but then they get confused halfway through, forget how they want to connect things together, and inevitably flip tables on some babyrage s*** once they realize they’ve written themselves into a corner.

“Welp f*** that, let’s start over!”
