Very happy there is just only little stuff you can change in the appearance of the character but disappointed with the color change like the blue scorpion

The customization is great too. I love Tribal Baraka, plus seeing Scorpion without his hood again is awesome.
I can't wait to see what you can do with Kabal

Hmmm... I dunno about this one. I walked away and came back. But for some reason MK11 feels underwhelming... dunno what I expected. Just not getting that feeling of "WoooW" Like I did with MKX reveal. MKX felt like a move forward. Something new. MK11... feels like I have seen this stuff already. And just not digging art direction. Seriously. Can't put my finger on what's the actual problem.

I don't know how old you are, but I've noticed that as I've gotten older, I don't get nearly as "hyped", ever for things I'm actually excited about. MKX came out in 2015. Is it possible you've just outgrown getting hyped about this kind of thing? Just a thought.

Now, about stages, regarding the trailers what can we select (not necessarily the actual names):

Shang Tsung's Island
Black Dragon Club/hideout
SF where Johnny Cage is in the background
SF desert
Ship with canons (Nethership?)
That one that looks like a new version of Shao Kahn's arena
Shaolin Temple (they may go back to MKII, there's even a monk dead, wonder if this is where Baraka comes back)
Netherrealm place where Shinnok's head is

Nah. I am not that type. I create stuff every day so I can dance and get hyped any day, but stuff has to be good. To be honest I think it is just high expectations. I was really hoping for something different. Maybe this Injustice 2 feeling not running for me, or just character designs. (Also my age is under my avatar. I am 27. According to current society standards, I am supposed to be now... senior citizen?)

Baraka looks boooooooring. And I have nothing against the guy. We need more non human characters, but he is just... meh.
Kronika... I hoped for more divine feeling, but just cliche design as usual.
Sonya Blade... mah usual main, but holy shit. Do something about her boring design. I am down for military gear, but this one is just too bland. We still have to see Young Sonya. Maybe she will look better. But judging by the current artsyle...

Yeah you know. I think I see my problem. I was hoping for more mystical look. Something that fits MK lore better for me. But everything feels so... modernized. I think that Special Forces stuff is just getting too much. Skarlet face is ok, but... she feels too modern. While I kinda like her outfit without the hat, it still screams too much of... MODERN.

Combat system feels too cinematic. That's cause I prefer speed I guess. I don't like interruptions that slow down the game mid match.
Character movement feels restricted now. Like they are carrying weights or something.

Overall this feels too much of Injustice 2 for me. I was expecting more ritualistic clothing, but again. I might be surprised when they reveal more content.

Even so menus look lazy (I can't believe I am saying that, especially after liking simplistic MKX menu). That character screen just rubs me off the wrong way.

Yeah. It just doesn't have the feeling of being a world with Gods, Mystical creatures, and actual brutal combat. Just because they added tons of blood effects, doesn't really make combat fast and brutal. It feels like I am watching Nolan's version of Mortal Kombat?

And trust me I was hyped af before reveal, but after seeing gameplay, the fire died down.

TL:DR version. Art design and gameplay wise, it isn't what I expected. Like at all. I could go as far and say it is 180 from what I expected. But that's just my opinion. Doesn't mean game is bad. I guess I just have these unusual tastes.

Im will admit that i am worried about that crushing blow mechanic and visual...its here to stay though im sure..I don't think you have an unusual taste.A lot of people want to see more monster type characters.I'd like more of them to beat up on as well. lol

Really impressed with the stages so far and it's nice to see that we will get more than we did in MKX, that game felt like we were lacking stages big time.. not to mention stage fatalities.

A List Of Confirmed Characters so far

Raiden
Cassie
Sub-Zero
Scorpion
Kitana
Sonya
Kung Lao
Liu Kang
Skarlet
Geras
Kabal
Baraka
Kronika
Shao Kahn

Strongly hinted and all but confirmed

Rain
Jade
Noob Saibot
Johnny Cage
Shang Tsung?

If I've missed anyone out please chime in :)

Characters I'm hoping to see that haven't been confirmed or strongly hinted

Fujin!!
Reptile
Tanya
Reiko
Ashrah
Sindel
Motaro (Unplayable sub boss with 4 legs)

Would've wanted Sareena but she'd look way too much like Skarlet now (I'm strangely ok with this though lol)

I'm really loving the new Gameplay mechanics and their overall Philosophy Gameplay-wise, what really killed MKX for me was how oppressive the game was in terms of offense. It's nice to hear that their focusing more on making more Neutral Heavy vs 50/50ing people to death, and Dash Canceling is back that's huge and hopefully it plays a role in execution.

The new defensive Mechanics are awesome, but one that really caught my attention was the Flawless Block. I can't wait to see how the Meta develops around it and to see how it influences each Match up in the future. Overall this made me more excited for what's in store in April.

Perfectly acceptable, and well written answer. I certainly see where you're coming from. Maybe the word is atmosphere? MK has lost that atmosphere that made it so enduring. It was strong in games like MK2, Deception...even MK9 to a degree. But it was missing, or diminished in MKX, so I think I understand what you mean.

Maybe as more is revealed, that'll change though. :)
