The changes that devs brought to the game like defensive/offensive bar, only one Final Blow per match, and practically, removal of the sprint, completely changed the way I play the game. I don’t think I like it. I really did love the way MKX encouraged you to always go aggressive, and its fast pace was very rewarding. There were way more options to break defense and deal damage with each character, while in 11 I find myself confined to doing low kicks in order to gain opening. Either this or just spamming a safe combo.
I know, NTR did this, so the game could be more methodical and e-sports friendly, but it doesn’t seem like it benefited either players’ style or spectators’ viewing experience. What do you guys think of it?
