Nobody is being offensive and I fully respect that you like those characters, even I did enjoy the konquest mode although I preferred the MKD one. However you have to see that MKA was rushed and so were Taven and Daegon - at least move-wise. I mean how many other characters use fire? I believe you could name like twenty that were in the game. The only way that Taven could be redeemed is to give him some sort of time-orientated abilities - he did have one in konquest but all he did have in the main game were extremely bland and uninspiring moves - a generic fireball? ...a shoulder charge? ....a ground pound move? Daegon is pretty much the same story.
