    MKX had trash roster torn between overrused characters and horrible new ones. MK11 basically has:
    - some of the overrused characters but most with cool twist
    - improved versions of shitty MKX characters expect for Jacqui who is beyond repair
    - few very good classic fighters returning - Shang, Noob, Jade
    - one of the best characters of 3D era - Frost
    - not so good new characters but still miles better than crap from MKX except for Cetrion

    Roster could be better if it were less safe, damn I'd be totally fine with fresh touch on MK where S-Z is repleaced by Frost, Scorpion - by Noob or Smoke, Reptile - by Chameleon, Ermac - by Rain, Raiden - by Fujin etc.

    Also, according to my calculations there will be about 3-4 DLC characters from 3D era (out of ~ 12) so it's a fuckin' incline.

    No matter if they added in Reptile, Ermac, Chameleon, Rain and anyone else in the DLC you will always have the black mark known as Jacqui in the roster there that exists to remind you that somehow this void of charisma got in over anyone. I shit on a lot of 3D characters but I'd take any of them than Jacqui, she is the worst.

    If they did a huge Armageddon style cast again, the roster would still suck purely because Jacqui is on it. Cetrion is close though.

    Let's be real also, Jacqui over Mileena is retarded.

    If that story spoiler is trve... awesome:

    Frost and Kronika are the same person from different time periods. The cyber Lin Kuei are time cops. Geras is future Jax, well his soul in a golem/machine.
    You get to make choices during the story.
    1st choice is during chapter 3, you play as either Shao Khan or Kotal Khan and determine the ruler of Outworld.
    2nd choice is in chapter 6 as young Liu & young Lao on who to give the keys of time to Kronika or Korrupted Raiden.
    3rd choice is in chapter 9 as Hanzo & Kuai on whether to pursue Noob or stop Frost.
    Final choice is 3 ways in chapter 12 as Jacqui & Cassie side with Young Raiden or Korrupt Raiden or Revenant Liu Kang.

    Deaths:
    Reptile killed by Erron Black
    Ermac killed by Erron Black
    Shao Khan killed by Kotal Khan (depending)
    Kotal Khan killed by Shao Khan (depending)
    Old Jax kills himself to erase Geras from time
    Shinnok killed by Kronika
    Kenshi/Takeda/Jin killed by Geras & Frost
    Old Kuai Lang killed by Noob Saibot
    Hanzo killed by Scorpion
    D'Vorah killed by Jade

    Cameos
    Hotaru
    Li Mei
    Dagon
    Sindel

    Frost killing missing Kombat Kids to ensure they won't be back as DLC = 10/10!

    From decline news: Erron Black killed Hsu Hao :negative:



    Sektor as NPC:



    Frost!

    That story list doesn't really look legit. Most of it is contradicting the leak subreddit, where the guy keeps updating everyone (along with streamable snippets) while playing through the story.

    Thanks, I've found that thread. It's legit thanks to videos included. At this point the whole story mode will be on youtube by tomorrow.

    Of all the shitty fake spoilers, the "new character X is actually an old character Y after some funky shenanigans!" are the most retarded. I remember all the shit going on before MGS V, Kaz is Ocelot, Kaz is helicopter, Quiet is Chico after sex change operation, Skull Face is Zadornov, Venom is Gray Fox, Venom is Solidus, Venom is Decoy Octopus, everyone is Decoy Octopus, and so on. No. Just no. There already are doubles of characters from different timelines, all straightforward, sharing everything and presented avowedly.
    Tl;dr - calling bullshit on the "leaked plot twists", all of which will be probably irrelevant in a few hours due to real early copy leaks.

    Erron Black killing Reptile/Ermac doesn't even make sense. Ermac could kick the shit out of him without even turning to face him.

    Also, according to Story Mode:

    Newly discovered Azn Kitana kills Shao Kahn. As if this game's story couldn't get more retarded.

    I've seen a cameo of Sheeva - maybe she's prepared for DLC.

    Also - prepare for Dragon Ball Z fusion lulz!

    edit: Next gaem will be another reboot or MK11 is just last MK geam.

    edit: that Ultra Instinct 'Fujin'???

    Damn, it feels like MK + DBZ + Avengers.

    It's like watching one of those cheesy 90s MK movies.
    Correction. I'd rather watch the movies.

    Movie MK1 is still one of the most fun action movies of its time. I enjoy watching that more than your average Schwarzenegger movie or Rambo movies.

    It's a wonder how much better the trailer becomes when an appropriate music is used to set the mood.

    I mean yeah, I still have my reservations and shit, but this does genuinenly make me a bit more interested. Especially when they kinda embrace the cheesiness of the entire concept.

    Noob seems to be fucking her demon colleague in this timeline, seeing how he has a gear piece called "Jataaka's Consort". So I doubt he minds much.

    I thought Kuai Lang was close to Sareena not Bi-Han? I know in Mythologies Bi-Han and her are chummy but I think his younger brother was the one that got close to her?
    I wouldn't be surprised if this answer is actually confusing considering how MK is just kinda everywhere with stories sometimes.

    It was Bi-Han that got closer to Sareena, given that Mythologies Sub-Zero is about Bi-Han. i think Kuai Liang and Sareena had a thing in Armageddon where Sareena was manipulated by Quan-Chi into stealing the medallion Kuai Liang has, which i think opened the Lin Kuei temple.

    In old timeline he had... affair with Bi-Han before she had been railgunned by Shinnok, then she just helped younger Sub-Zero to fight back Noob-Smoke during Deception events and that's all.

    In current timeline, even after 25 years gap she revealed strong sentiment for Bi-Han (MKX Jax Chapter, dialogue with Kitana).

    Wow, didn't notice that, good point! So there's yet another hell waifu to spare for Stryker or Smoke.

    That's how MK looks nowadays eh

    Bleak "realistic" so characters literally merge with backgrounds
    When I look at various japanese fighting games, characters are often so striking and colorful in comparison. Characters which do stand out are mostly those tested by time (like you know it's Raiden cause of white + blue + hat).

    If they replaced Terminator with Havik and Joker with any of unused 3D era characters it would be perfect.

    Cheesy story - first MK movie. With latest games we are far beyond Annihilation levels of retardation.
