The NRS Thread


Recommended Posts

Played some offline sets yesterday, then some online sets today using D'Vorah and Subsington.

 

D'Vorah is pretty exciting and I seem to be picking her up quickly, but she lacks a lot of useful things. Even so I don't really mind but it would be nice to have more than one KB on my build that isn't the uppercut lol.

Subs is Subs, doing Subs things. He freezes, he slides, he overheads. He's a good boy. During a crisis of faith about continuing to use him I did get two Meteor Towers in a row with White Ranger Subs and I guess Revenant Subs, so I'll take it as a sign to keep him around.

Dumb move by NRS 

 

 

 

Shit like this kills me lol. You chop off every limb in the game a dozen ways and literally smack people to the white meat but bad words in the variation names isn’t acceptable. Literally what is the logic? 🤣

NRS is weird as hell man. They have NC-17 levels of violence but want to make everything else PG.....WTF 🤔

Just got my first uppercut brutal on someone lol. I had no idea it was coming but Jesus was it satisfying. He was spamming d1 d1 throw and for some reason there was a lag spike when he did it some I could never take my turn. Last round I just played the online meta and ducked it...sent his jaw into orbit. 
 

I’m disappointed Frost didn’t say her “downloaded”  quip. Would’ve been perfect.

One of ya'll gotta show me how to play sometime. 

Today was actually the first time I played in like 2 weeks (and it showed). KL burns me out something fierce. 
 

Also I struggle with basic bf inputs and I can’t flawless block anything. Not sure you want to learn from me lol.

Hey that's exactly how I play, except I don't even learn bnb's because I've never really settled on a character in 11 for longer than a few weeks. 

 

Really need to just sit down with someone for an hour or 2 and play some casuals, just to feel out the character select a little bit

What I did (do) was pick every character I like visually and play them long enough to finish their first character tower. Gives me just enough time to get an idea of what they do and gives me a reason to play them for a while with committing for life lol. I main Frost and she was like 4th/5th of my list but I love her gameplay.

Weird, I fish for brutals online all the time. Recent favorite is Robocop's back throw brutal. 

I basically time how long until they quit out as he keeps shooting their character. Also most people suck online Martin it isn't difficult to look good in MK.

Oh yeah I fish for Brutalities too, but usually not the universal d2 one. Pretty sure that one requires you not to block an attack for the whole round. 
 

For Frost specifically, I get her dive kick brutal the most. Landing it thrice a round is easy, let alone 3 times in a match lol. Throw brutals are usually pretty easy to get too but every now and then I run into someone who knows I’m gunning for it and suddenly they tech everything grab and I gotta just finish them off lol

Yeah when people know it becomes a battle of wills lol. Think my favorite surprise one besides the uppercut is Sub's chest kick brutality.

 

Just instantly they are off their legs and you take a second to process just what happened.

I think I'll do just that. You know, instead of making broken AI Loadouts and letting them beat the towers for me like I normally do 

No no I let AIs play my towers directly. I play the characters to farm the requirements though (land x fatalities, x uppercuts, x fatal blows, etc). It’s an incentive to play them even if a lot of them are easy and probably could be done by an AI. The only reqs you definitely have to farm yourself are the brutalities and fatal blows.

Wow Kabal is fucking insane. I already knew he was strong but his custom options are nutty. Dude has restands all over the place and Slight gas turns him into upgraded Jacqui light. Amped gas cloud has like half a dozen different applications too it’s hilarious.

 

I’m really surprised this character isn’t more common. Pretty I’ve only fought one online on PC. He was way more common on PS4 closer to launch.

Double post but who cares...

 

Just look at the damage on these sub-optimal combos. Note that for the first combo if they try to breakaway it does 27% instead of 22%, and that's without the easily confirmable KB.

Kabal has been good but people are sleeping on him for sure. He's super well-rounded, though probably not my cup of tea (like Jacqui).
