Skarlet needs all the nerfing can get. Amazing zoning and all her normals are great
Scorpion is "good", only because he's EASY TO USE. This is how the character has been since, at least, MK9... And likely because he's, 1) the game's "Ryu" ("Ken"?), and 2) because he's Boon's best butt bummy brawler.
Notwithstanding his ease of use, Scorpion is rarely "top tier" -- when the complete roster is present. He's just the character most casuals jump on because of his 'plug 'n play' nature... A trait that's likely accentuated in MK11, given the game's slant towards "accessibility".
Characters like Goro or Shao Kahn should not be combo-heavy, rather, hit like Mac trucks. The former, although conveying a sense of being 'somewhat' stronger than the rest of the cast in 'X', was no "Goro" of old. The latter boss will likely also receive a caning with a similar 'diminution stick', come his reveal for MK11. I cannot see Kahn having anything unique (e.g., the inability / disinclination to jump and, thus, compensatory mechanics or distinct advantages -- such as, armour on specials or myriad "sorcerer" abilities), nor being a true "heavy", in the historical sense of the character class. I just and sincerely hope he gets is iconic taunts / trash talk... even if only as automatic exclamations imbued into his gameplay (e.g., after landing a KB or after a combo ender)
With e-sports being such a
cancerous plagueinfluence on how games are designed now, it's inevitable that they would always err on the side of caution, than on the side of risk... Even if the end result is a mundane product.

NRS did well with Injustice 2's balancing. Only character who got unjustly buttfunked was Deadshot. They made his ass useless
As AI he was very annoying, but human player? I never heard of him being one of the best, I use to assume this was because his move set was extremely short. I wished he had the barrier and crimson lightning he had in story :\
Welp looks like the beta stress test is done. It's was fun while it lasted.
Was awesome of them to open that klassic tower, I had so much more fun playing against the AI than I did against other people, I LOVE MK but I've never been great against other people.
I think Rain is in. There is no way there are only three male ninjas. Rain has been highly requested for MKX and he has never been on the roster except for UMK3 on home consoles from the beginning. Armageddon doesn’t count since even Meat and Mokap are playable.
His picture is also on the purple gaming mode picture. I think they don’t reveal him for hype reasons. During the reveal SonicFox‘ main character was Rain as well. So, chances are high enough.
In this sense, this presents another argument for a dedicated "[insert preferred name]" mode, where game balance is thrown out of the window, in favour of fun and staying true to the franchise.
This way, competitive play could still be balanced to 'Karate Fighting Man 1 vs. Karate Fighting Man 2' oblivion, while still preserving what made the game popular in the first place. Trying to uphold both design philosophies is not possible in the same gameplay environment; and, as such, the fun factor is what is almost always compromised.
(*Suffice to say, they will never do this kind of "Omega" mode -- because they'll argue ye olde "it will split the community" non-contention; meanwhile, actually fearing that most will play the 'unbalanced' version of the game, and ignore the "proper" regulation...)
Just look at SFV: All "tournament ready" and "balanced" up the wazoo -- yet, one of the most boring "AAA" fighters on the market today. If NRS do not heed the warning proffered by the dead SFV coal mine canary, Mortal Kombat 11 will go the same way. One, fleeting "stress test" in, and people are already airing concerns about "limited gameplay" this and "bland and boring" that... Despite all the obvious positive aspects of MK11.
Here's some MK news for ya, Seems that we might be getting a dual reveal with Kotal this Wednesday, no word if it's a non-revealed character but it's possible, also C2E2 this friday might hold another reveal of some form. And finally on reddit, Tyler implied we might be getting a lot of info on the roster next week.
Long Live Mortal Kombat!!!
Two reveals this kombat kast. One of them is not Dvorah tho. My guess is Erron Black
