He has way too many good tools and options and safety. Strip a lot of them away.
I want you to grab your nuts. Grab your balls. I want you to take a handful, and just grab your nuts real quick. Swivel 'em around in a circular motion.

Difficult to nerf without ruining him completely. He lacks good mixups that lead into anything real so all he really has is whiff punishing and outspacing you.
He is so damn safe on everything but take that away and he doesnt really work.
He has annoying zoning (air missiles should never have been given to Kabal or Sub) so Id see him take a nerf on that.

I think he is just a bit too strong atm (not even close to OP or broken) but difficult to nerf, unlike the braindead s+ tiers like Liu Jacqui Geras etc. They need hard nerfs

You don't actually need "mixups" in this game, since throws are busted. Throws beat nearly everything in this game, they beat pokes, even low pokes. They have extreme priority for whatever reason.
With that in mind, having a mid to mix up with throws is all you need, and Kabal has very good mids, including a 9-frame mid, which many characters which they had.

OT: Kabal is a very solid character, he has great buttons, high combo damage, amazing safety, and great utility in his Nomand Dash. If possible I wish every character would be made like him. Clearly whoever designed this character knew what he/she is doing. He was designed to be good, unlike most of the characters in this game.
However, if they can't buff the low tiers, then Kabal is up there with the other S/A+ tier characters who need to be toned down.

Seems like a split between Nerf and Left Alone. On the initial roster, I personally think Kabal is character that was done perfectly along with Baraka and Sonya.

Completely agree. Some characters are just difficult to nerf without messing with their whole kit.
