My old-faithful has always been Subzero, but as of MK9 I've gotten quite proficient with Smoke!
Who's your favorite Kombatant?
Let's see, with MK1; my guy was Scorpion. When MK2 came out, I played Kung Lao exclusively. And when MK3/UMK3 came out, my fighter of choice was Kabal/Ermac.
I've just been playing through the story since the PSN is down and I must say that I like almost all of them. With the exception of Sub-Zero i have yet to play a character that I didn't enjoy playing but I had to pick one it would either be Liu Kang or Cryax. They are both just a lot of fun to play.
I've been playing a lot of Scorpion. Messed around a little with Liu Kang, but not really feeling it. As happy as I've been with the Hell Ninja though, I know there is a stigma around using him, and he doesn't seem to have a lot of options as far as play style, so I'm thinking about picking up another. Maybe Raiden, Sub-Zero or Cyber Sub-Zero, just because I like the way they look.
I've only been playing Kung Lao and Reptile. I've got a couple solid 35 ish % combo's for both of them and way more using meter, and both have the ability to rush people down pretty good with their specials. Kung Lao more so than Reptile. But reptile can do more damage with less hits. So I'm starting to lean towards him since there's some lag online and it's easy to fuck up Kung Lao's Kombo's with any input lag since he moves so quick and hits so many times.
Nightwolf..And really just about everyone in this game is pretty great. But I'm not gonna bother trying to get good at more than 1 or 2 at a time. Specifically, I'd like to get all my matchups down with Kung and Reptile. Even more specifically, get more comfortable dealing with Noob, Smoke, and Ermac. 3 very annoying projectile and teleportation based keep away characters who everyone seems to use a whole lot. Especially noob. I wish I was in a position to play with more people in person instead of spending all my time worrying about how to beat laggy projectile spammers.
