They aren't rumors. It's true. It's from the same leak that showed us all of Nightwolf's dialogue.
Sindel is a DLC character and her retcon may not be officially canon to the main story.
You'll believe God is a woman.
- Sindel killing all of the characters in the Cathedral and Nightwolf being the lone martyr that takes her out.
- Cyrax missing from MKX story mode without an in-game explanation.
- A throw-away intro line about how Sub became human again (which is supposed to be a line regarding 1 panel of the comics that you'd miss it if you blinked).
- Absolutely 0 information regarding who Erron Black and Ferra / Torr are, save for a non-canon Klassic Tower ending.
- Raiden saying an incantation and Sonya kicking Quan Chi in the ball-sack being the key to undoing the revenants.
Vogel really didn't do THAT much better with those stories, and the only reason why people turn a blind-eye to it in MK9 was because of nostalgia blinders and the roster being Trilogy 2.0.
The fact is that they changed stuff up in MK9, as well (like the Sindel story mode thing in MK9 and Mileena and Kitana not growing up together, but now Mileena being a Shang Tsung creation), which is right along the same lines of MK11 Sindel's Bio being changed (imo) but you don't see people up in arms about that.
Again, there's blindness to nostalgia, though.
My biggest issue with the MK11 story is that they go on to use the quantum mechanics of time travel and grandfather paradox (Back To The Future theory of time travel), but yet they leave shit unexplained or as a retcon (like Goro's death and the whole death of the monks on the island), by not properly explaining things.
The MKX comics were the first time since MK3 that I actually gave a shit about Scorpion not being a selfish douche and finally mentoring someone, for once.
It's a shame that none of the awesome MKX comic writing transferred as much into MKX or into MK11, but yeah, I preferred the MKX comics storyline over the MKX story, and that also speaks volumes, imo.
If we're being real with ourselves, (Vogel or no Vogel) the MK lore went downhill after Tobias left, as he was the one who came up with the lore, settings and character designs up until MK4.
Kittlesten gave us the most heartfelt moment in Mortal Kombat to date. And he did it with the most monstrous characters in the series
I don't believe the screwups here are his fault alone. We saw what he could do mostly alone with the MKX comic, and it was LEAGUES better than the official game. I think this is just butting heads

I mean, the whole blood dagger storyline was also pretty awesome, and I wish that they would have continued that into the MKX story.
Not to mention, we also got to see other characters make a cameo that would have otherwise not been seen in either MKX or MK11 (so far, according to the data mining), such as Tasia, Kai and Havik.
Yeah... Mileena and Sindel retcons can't be even compared.
Mileena still remains the sister of Kitana. They only changed when they met.
Sindel retcon is a major plot mess. Sindel died to protect other Realms from the same fate as Edenia. And then she was turned evil against her will by Shao Kahn. Her retcon now makes it so, that she was a traitor, which means she never sacrificed herself for Earthrealm (why would she, if she betrayed her own Realm?), which makes MK9 not make sense, but again NRS has showed multiple times that they are distancing themselves from MK9.... which is just wow.
As for writer. Seniority means jack shit. There are people that spend decades in their posts and suck their jobs, while some greenhorn who barely worked for a year, does a way better job. What they need is a writer that understands Tobias vision. And also get rid of all the pandering... which won't happen.
MK11 story is a clusterf$%k at this point. Forced relationships, that came out of nowhere. Too many events that got skipped. Characters dead, and only thing you get is intro explanation, other characters have the most idiotic motivations like... sigh... Frost. Who just wanted attention. I mean who writes this shit? I really doubt that the same guy that wrote MKX comics, also wrote MK11 storyline. I saw zero brilliance of MKX comics in MK11. He probably didn't even get to write anything properly. But again, what to expect? MK is now coming out like some COD. Quality will obviously will drop.
And lo and behold, the leak turned out to be 85% true.
So I'm not calling the Pyramid Head leak fake just yet.
Anyways, MY take on the KP2 is Ö
1) Fujin (datamined)
2) Sheeva (datamined)
3) Ash Williams (datamined)
4) Sareena (was mentioned as DLC in the old leak, has no assist in the game)
5) Havik (his assist was removed - my guess is he took Reiko's place because Reiko was too similar to Shao Kahn in design and concept)
6) Doomslayer (a Doom/MK collaboration was heavily hinted at this year's E3)
While we were arguing about Story, it appears that one thing that didn't get mentioned here was a Kombat League exploit where losers would highlight the Forfeit Set option and let the clock run out for the sole purpose of frustrating the winner into quitting, thereby screwing the winner out of both the win and the points.
This was discovered over Labor Day weekend, and it was also discovered that you could counter that exploit by changing your account on PS4 while you were stuck like this, which would give you your win and the points that went with it.
Rhizodus pulled off, I'm not letting my guard down under any circumstances.
