For all the people that want 1v1

21 replies 293 views Edited Jan 16, 2013
Ill tell u why it wasn't included:

it would be the most broken thing ever. U would have raiden killing u with his million kill confirms and fat princess jumping around throwing knights at u all day or heichachi. ( If u want to play the most broken heichachi play ztoriko .

Then u have other characters that wouldn't even stand a chance.

And I've had 1v1s that got so boring I would let the other guy kill me in stock matches. I'm talking about the larger stages like sandover village. The game becomes a dodge fest and can easily take 10 minutes. The only way I could see 1v1s to be entertaining would be playing on dojo.

Obviously 1v1s weren't implemented into the game because of the cheap tactics.

I love the game as a party game but not a competitive fighting game.

1 vs 1 is a blast - I've started leaning towards it a lot more then FFAs & 2vs2s locally with friends, just because it can be really intense and a lot more strategic then the other modes.

I'm all for getting it implemented for online use, but wouldn't care too much considering I usually play locally.

I beg to differ. The Pasta Leagues are currently having a 1v1 season and I think the character usage would surprise you. I know my pool is being led by a Dan/Sly/Jak user and I'm coming up in second with Cole and Big Daddy. Mind you there is both a high level Fat Princess/Sackboy user and a high level Raiden in this same pool.

Another pool is being led by a Dante.

Yet another is being led by a Kratos/FP.


The problem is that at lower levels, 1v1 looks broken as hell because some characters have A) Been explored more fully than others and B) some characters are more beginner friendly than others.

You realize every reason you've listed for this game not having 1v1 exists in every other fighting game right? Every fighting game has some kind of spammable attack, it's all a matter of whether you know how to work with it or not.

Allow me to quote some quick tier lists I just looked up for MK9:

" Date Posted: May 20, 2012 #1

S+ - Kabal
S - Kenshi, Sonya, Kung Lao, Cage, Freddy
A+ - Jax, Kitana, Smoke, Skarlet, Sektor, Reptile
A - Cyrax, Raiden, Rain, Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, Shang, Ermac, Mileena

"


"S+ - Kabal

A+ - Jax, Kung Lao, Johnny Cage
A - Smoke, Kitana, Cyrax, Skarlet

This entire tier list discussion thread on the MK boards:

http://www.mortalkombatunited.com/topic/117999-lets-nail-down-the-definitive-top-10-a-community-proj...

Or maybe this one?

http://www.mortalkombatunited.com/topic/115031-mortal-kombat-9-tier-list/page__hl__%2Btier+%2Blist




You get the point. You were good with two of the top five characters in the game, including the one that EVERYBODY agrees is the best (Haven't seen that since smash with MK, and even then people disagreed for the first 2 years), and you use that as an example of balance? Really?
