The only thing I would have changed in MK9 is that I would have given Raiden the testicular fortitude to say "Johnny Cage, Kung Lao, Liu Kang, Smoke. Get in there and help Sub-Zero out. This Shao Kahn motherf***er is going DOWN!!!!"
To add to that, I would of gave Raiden similar testicular fortitude to say "Hey Kung Lao look out behind you!" or "DUCK FOR FUX SAKE!" other than everyone just stand around and go oops I think he just snapped that dudes neck... oh well he is a dick to fight online so Funk him... and his hat.
No one bothered to save or warn or Kung Lao, they all just stood there, so I'd point the finger at poor writing instead of the thunder godAgreed 100%.
Kung Lao died a very dumb death from showing off, and Raiden just stood around with his thumbs in his ass, like "Welp, we can't save him (Sub-Zero) and the tournament must go on."
F*** the tournament you jackass thunder god!!!
Your warriors are dropping like flies because Shao Kahn does illegal shit, bending the rules, and it never entered your mind to fight fire with fire and do the same?
Damn you, freakin' goody-two-shoes Raiden.
Chapter 12 thru 17 is where story mode went down-hill for me.
Well, MK9's story already connects with those. The older arcade games' stories weren't exactly perfect themselves, anywayHow would you rewrite it so that it'd connect with the old games
- Quan Chi is not in the tournament

Motaro would have had a proper fight. The four leg excuse is just laziness. You could have disabled xrays/throws/certain specials against him, just as fatalities are disabled against Goro/Kintaro.
