We know the Roster! List your mains, casuals, and characters you wont use.

Have in mind that my 3 mains in MK9 were Nightwolf, Ermac and Shang Tsung.

This is actually the first time that I may main a female and that female is Tanya. If Tanya plays anything like Cammy, then I am totally sold. If that indeed happens, I can see her being top-tier like Cammy. SF players know what I am talking about.

While I love Ermac in terms of design, I am not sold about his gameplay. I need to see every character in action first, but the first ones I will touch will most likely be Kenshi and Erron Black though ah ah ah

But yeah, so far, my five choices are: Kenshi, Kano, Tremor, Tanya and ERRON BLACK!

Mains:
Mileena: She's always been one in my top 2 females in MK. Jade and Mileena were my favorite girls, followed by Kitana. I love me my ninja girls. Mileena is looking INCREDIBLE in MKX, absolutely loving everything about her and I will dedicate most of my playtime to her.

Sassy Cassie: I thought I would hate her, I wasn't a big fan of Sonya nor Johnny, but there is something about her that makes me really want to play her. And I will, mostly the Hollywood variation. If it's really as fun as it looks, I will definitely play Cassie a lot.

Kung Lao: My long time main, I love this man to pieces. I hate his "old" look in MKX, but hopefully his alt costume is amazing. I will play him, but I really wanna dedicate most of my time to Mileena this time around.

Play a lot but not enough to "main":
Subzero and Scorpion: Always my favorite ninjas, my homeboys, no MK ever comes out and I don't play these two. I love them.
Ermac: Oh Ermac, my 3rd favorite ninja in MK. He's always been fun to play, and if he's anything like MK9, I will definitely play him.
Kitana: My 3rd favorite girl in MK, and her Assassin variation is looking really fun.
Kano: This one is a surprise, I never liked Kano, NEVER. But this game, something about him in this game is looking awesome. His fighting, his rugged look.
Predator: It's the MFing Predator.

Occasionally:
Raiden.
Tremor (maybe?): To be honest, I see him being nothing but a fad, a second grade ninja thrown in here just so people shut up. But we'll see, maybe they'll prove me wrong.
Johnny Cage: Unusual for me, this is the first game where I find his playstyle looking fun.
Shinnok: If he plays like I'm expecting him to, I will play him every once in a while.
Quan Chi.
D'Vorah: Probably my 2nd favorite new character after Cassie, I will give her a shot.

Won't try, don't care to at all:
Takeda: This guy's kit looks strong as hell, but I find him really lame when it comes to character design overall. He just screams "edgy too cool for school kid, with cyber suit and ninja shit with plasma swords in there just because."
Liu Kang: Never liked him, matter of fact I hate him. Annoying character.
Sonya: Just don't care for her at all, I find her boring.
Kotal Kahn: Cool looking, but his playstyle is not for me.
Ferra/Torr: Same as Kotal, just not for me.
Kenshi: Don't like him, ghetto version of Ermac no thanks.
Tanya: She was always a boring, dull, shitty character. Unless they completely rework her, I don't see myself playing her. If they do rework her though, is she even Tanya anymore?
Jason: No thanks, not interested.
Jax: Not my style, find him boring.
Jacqui: Expect her to be similar or inspired by Jax, not for me.
Kung Jin: Shit character, boring, uninspired, and I see him as the most boring character in the game.
Reptile: Always saw him as a second grade ninja, never liked him.
Goro: Not into the big guys.

No idea:
Erron Black: He has an interesting design for MK, we'll see how he plays.

Robot Rock
Torr: I love hulking characters. Everything about Torr I absolutely love. Will probably only go with the Lackey Variation because it gets a Shoryuken.

Jacqui: Love the strong female types. I'm not too big on her gauntlets, but everything else about her is great so far. People have been saying she has flamethrowers on her arms, I'm hoping they're machine guns. Or that at least in one variation they are.

Erron Black: Need at least one Zoner on my squad

Honestly I wasn't even gonna be buying MKX until I heard Shinnok was in. The roster is a serious bore this time around besides Shinnok and Tanya.
So pretty much add everyone on the 'never use' list except D'vorah, Sonya, and Ferra/Torr. (Which are only 'casuals')

Mains:
1- Tanya
2- Shinnok

Edit:
Forgot Jacqui. She'll be my 3rd main. She looks so good.

Hard to say since we still haven't seen enough (or any) gameplay from some characters, but right now my group is looking like this:

Takeda, Sub Zero, Sonya and Ferra/Torr.

The ones I've got my eye on but can't really comment on yet - Shinnok, Erron Black and Goro. Assuming they've got a playstyle that fits what I'm looking for, they will be added to the group.

The runner ups are - Kitana, Mileena and Jacqui.
 

Goddess

TRMK Princess
Kitana - Because she's my favorite! Royal Storm and Mournful are going to be the variations I use the most.

Mileena and then Tanya

For mains I'll have quite a few, it may sound silly to have so many but I really like a lot of the characters that have been shown and even some old favorites that we haven't seen yet. I'll likely use Sub Zero, Raiden, Scorpion, Quan Chi, Jax, Kung Lao, Johnny Cage, Liu Kang and Takeda a lot. I'll still probably change it up a lot more with this MK than any previous game though since I'm really liking the characters we got for most part and it'll be fun learning them all.

That's the most stupid thing I have read this week.

You make like D'Vorah or not, but she's not the worst char ever, she's original with a unique gimmick that puts her above a lot of already existing chars that are nothing more than copycats or generic fighters.

Besides, you can't say that when we had characters like Mokap, Kobra, Meat and Kira...

Hey now! Talking about Kira like that is grounds for a fight! :soapbox:

GET OUT OF MY HEAD [MENTION=18253]Lord Greyjoy[/MENTION]! GET OUT OF MY HEAD!



All of this, to the letter. Almost definite main.



I haven't yet purchased a ticket for the Takeda voice/dialogue hate train, but everything else here I can get behind. Undecided between Shirai Ryu and Lasher. High chance of main.



Also all of these things.

And basically agreed on Mileena, Kenshi, Erron Black... replace Subz with Scorp for me, and give me some Johnny Cage. Shinnok is very intriguing. I need to see some gameplay ASAP.

Forgot to talk about the characters I'm sure will be playing very little. It's a strikingly small list compared to MK9 and Injustice.

Jacqui (her gameplay would have to be out of this world to salvage her for me), Tanya (ditto), Reptile, Ferra/Torr, D'Vorah, Raiden, Kung Jin, Liu Kang, and Sonya.
 
Mains :
Kitana
Kitana
Kitana

Wont Use
JAX
JAX
JAX (Stupid spots thief)
Ferra / Torr (Never liked bulky chars)
Jason (Hate Guests)
Predator (Hate Guests)
Jacqui (Hate her father)
Raiden (Always hated)
Kano (Always Super hated)
Shinnok (Cannot impress me)
D´vorah (Really hating her)
Ermac (Like as a char, but didn´t impress me)
Mileena (Liked at first, but now I´ve seen her face and moves it´s a NO for me... However it´s her best look and development, but as Kitana said, she´s unfit to live....)

Don´t know if I´m missing someone....

I've missed majority of the streams and trailers in purpose so I just have to guess.

Top-5 (Not in particular order)


Erron Black - Clint Eastwood vibe. I hope though his gameplay doesn't remind me of Stryker

Kung Lao, Raiden and Reptile - My mains from MK9. (shame that Smoke's missing..)

Shinnok - I wouldn't be surprised if he took Shang Tsung's place as shape-shifter.


Bottom 5:

Kenshi - I'd think they haven't drastically changed his gameplay, that was boring in MK9.

Ferra / Torr - I wouldn't be surprised if the turned out to fill Sheeva's role as garbage tier + garbage gameplay character.

Jason - I have never been excited about Friday 13th movies. I'm afraid his gameplay, moveset and Fatalities will be just some lazy designed slasher material.

Ermac - I love the character but gameplay felt underwhelming in MK9.

Goro - Tricky one to balance. Hopefully not as extremely limited moveset as in MK9.

You on the ps4?

So far, my potential main list consist of

Takeda: appears to be a beast rushdown character with great mobility. His footsies game looks insane as well. My type of character.

Kitana: well rounded character. Aesthetically, she tickles my fancy: that's very important ;)

D'vorah: speedy rushdown character. Looks fun to play with.

Any one of these can be my MAIN character. Once I make a decision, I'm sticking with it. No bouncing around. Ride or die.

Yes sir, I'm on PS4 this time around. Takeda Mirrors will be intense, down to the last 10%.

Good, now I can add you to my ass whipping list ;)

The only thing I don't like about Takeda is his teleport. I was never big on teleport shenanagins. He doesn't really need it because he already controls space with his whip attacks and dagger set ups. Plus, he has a freaking dive kick. The teleport seems a bit over the top, IMO.
