Only reason I buy the KPs is for the "early access"
I only ever use 1-2 characters out of the whole pack anyway.
I still haven't tried Shang yet lol
Ash Williams (Evil Dead)
KRONIKA (Please have her be playable and God Tier!)
Mileena (Most requested.)
Rain (Most requested.)

You'll believe God is a woman.
I could see how "Early access" can be a reason to get it for others and I get also understand the marketing strategy from their point, as well, but for me it just seems useless, given that since MKX they've had Trial Towers.
So, for the whole week I can still try out the character for free.
Yes, I know, it's a limited version of the character, but still a free trial.
I know that it may seem like a silly notion to some, but (to me), it kinda breaks the MK immersion to be fighting against Shang, Nightwolf, Sindel (future DLC) and Sheeva (future / leaked DLC) and then Terminator, Spawn, Joker or Ash show up.
It blows my mind that anyone would want Kronika playable. She's easily the most generic boss in MK history. Off the top of your head, can you remember any of her attacks?
Just because people want a boss to be playable doesn't mean they want a playable "SNK Syndrome" Boss.
People could simply be wanting an MKX Shinnok or MK11 Shao Kahn playable version of that said Boss, which is properly balanced / on the same playing field as the rest of the roster.
Btw, I don't personally want her playable, personally.
If online/tournament play is involved, bosses with SNK Boss Syndrome are the absolute last characters who should be playable. How else do you explain Jinpachi being playable exclusively offline in Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection, or better yet, Akuma being banned from tournaments in SSF2T? If I'm not mistaken, Capcom even went as far as disabling Akuma from online ranked mode in that same game on an early 30th Anniversary Collection patch.

Hence, my remark about MK11 Shao Kahn, who used to be a broken type of boss character during the Trilogy era and is now a balanced and playable character in MK11.
I'm not saying that bosses in their broken from should be playable.
There is just one problem. Shao Kahn actually has a proper backstory and personality.
Kronika is a blank slate. Aside being cheaply thrown in, as a mastermind behind everything, and being the first female villain, she has nothing to show.
EDIT: Even her design is lazy.
Reptile also started as a blank slate character in MK1 until MKII, so I don't see why any character can't be further developed, but whatever.
I've probably already given more attention to a character that probably won't matter in MK12, anyways.
But this is MK11 now. 2019. They suddenly introduce a character with no build up and claim that this character engineered all of the events up to this point and gave her the most laziest design, just to have a box checked.
If she was at least mentioned in previous MK titles, I wouldn't give her that much shit, but she was literally shoehorned at the last second. Even devs admitted that if I remember correctly. They had a different villain planned, and then changed it to Kronika, so she could be the first female villain. Point is. Can she be made into a playable character? Sure, she is part of the lore.. Does she deserve that? In my opinion? Hell no.
Eh. But again. It doesn't even matter, anymore. MK's lore is garbage at this point. They wrote such shit, that they themselves just pressed "RESET" button and left it to burn.
I take Kronika over MKA Blaze. Blaze's design and gameplay in MKA was so bad that I found myself laughing on how goofy and bad it was.
