That's pretty much the story of everyone with a functioning braincell that has played MK11.I still have fun playing Injustice 2 despite it basically being the Atom and starfire show at this point. I remember people like Tom Brady shitting on it calling it Injustice 1.5 at launch but at least NRS built the game on what came before instead of just change for the sake of change. There's nothing wrong with perfecting and evolving a established formula. As long as the game feels fresh and not stale. I've tried to force myself to play MK11 again but I drop it every time. It's just not fun to play compared to the games they made before IMO.
The game is shallow and if you're not into grinding random towers for individuals colors, you will get bored quickly. I remember it took me 3 days to figure out Frost gameplay and I did that without putting effort. I have played over 3000 matches with Raven in Tekken 7 and still haven't drawn out her full potential.
I liked Injustice 2 as well. Maxed out couple of characters, had fun with challenges and story. Loved the customization system. Sure it ain't MK9 kind of fun nor Deception, but still managed to enjoy the game. Can't say the same about MK11. Sometimes I get a temptation to install it, but when I remember I would have to put 100+GB on my SSD for it. Hell nah.

That guy disappeared into shadows. Haven't seen him since last year.

That's what NRS doesn't get it. Instead of establishing a foundation and perfecting it, they instead keep remaking entire system for each game, which actually piss off people more, than if someone fumbled a new feature or mechanic.
