I read that my crashing issues might be related to Windows 10 updates. I manually checked updates and a big one pushed through. Would be great if that helps out.

Also, I played Story Mode offline. Now that I'm in the game online, all the Story Mode rewards are in notifications. I think I've been opening rewards for 10 minuts lol.

I'm still going through it all, but I'm pleased that Story Mode unlocks so many character skins and gear pieces. It gets you content without being so grindy. I'm also getting Time Crystals and Koins to spend later. I mean just take a break from the damn Krypt and get rewards for a fun Story.

I'm really happy to get what I think will be Raiden's skin that resembles his MK1 look.

Well..... fvck. I just had another Server Game Crash and it was only in Kustomization checking out the new unlocked Skins. Hoping these glitches get smoothed out; in so many other ways the game is excellent.

EDIT: Trying 'Check File Integrity' in Steam.

EDIT EDIT: All files were validated. I wonder if MK11 has network settings under options. Hmm... this bug sucks.
I told everyone early on that if they did the story when the servers were down to check their notifications, you don't read every one of my posts? What kind of person are you? LOL I was the same way the day after the game came out when the servers were working, had to open a bunch of stuff from notifications.

Well, it took me a while before I even had time to do story mode because of my stupid job lol, so I skimmed over the story related posts to avoid spoilers. The extra stages didn't unlock though. Maybe I have to replay the last chapter.


Oh well, I found a post on Reddit that recommends being on a VPN and strangely that does seem to have solved the Server Crash problem for me. Fortunately, I already have Private Internet Access, I just never thought to run it when booting up just to play a game.

I went through a couple of towers using AI and beat Cassie and Jacqui but then came Shao Kahn and he has a modifier that can kill you with one hit, that just isn't fun at all. I tweeted a clip of him finishing me off in two rounds in a row with one hit each (full match was 16 seconds) to Ed Boon and one of the game designers I follow on twitter and told them they still had work to do on the towers and that things like that just aren't fun for the average player, we aren't all pros lol.
Its real stupid. I just let ai Sonya take care of him.

There were sometimes Living Towers like that in MKX, except for those the modifer was applied to both fighters. I thought it was a crazy and hilarious way to play the game if I could also pick huge powerups.

I had fun in one of those where I kept insta killing into Brutaliities.

There were also Living Towers with weird finisher modifiers where certain final hits caused the characters to explode.

Towers of Time took the balanced fun out of it :meh:

Just FYI you get a couple of more hearts if you do a mercy and once you've beaten them again use a brutality if you can that combo gives you the most hearts per fight at about 8, I think a mercy and fatality gives you 6. Mercy if you don't know how to do it is stand mid screen distance away, hold the left trigger and push down on the Dpad 3 times.

They should have Tyson as a guest character. He could be like the final boss of the Towers of Time:

I've barely touched the game. Haven't played a single regular match and not even through the tutorial stuff yet. Just haven't found much time/interest in playing it right now.

That's really well done. Especially how it looks like the body is tensing as his head blows up...
Especially from a movie that came out in the early 80s. It is impressive.

I played alot yesterday with Frost, Jacqui and trying Skarlet against Scorpions, Noob Saibots, Subzeroes and Shao Kahns. When you're on the 1p side of the char roster, move away from Scorpion... seven times out of ten they immediately pick Scorpion.

Ahhh..the MK playerbase..(Fk blocking, apparently). Some guy got upset; there's alot of that in MK11 online versus. More than any of the other fighters I play. After I started playing patiently, blocking high low strings, he started saying all kinds of nasty things through the mic. I was shocked. I forgot they still made these kind of people. Don't get me wrong DOA also has some special people but the friendly encounters outweighs the negatives.

Also, I've never seen so many people move on after 1 match in a fighter, so I messaged a guy after he 1 matched: how come MK players don't rematch?"

Him: Because X-rays.

Me: You know you can block X-rays, right?
Him:

I only played online during the beta so people were always up for a rematch then :)

Yeah, it was like that in the first week, but now people are declining matches and 1 matching when there's a good connection or solid fight. So I do other stuff to pass the time like training mode, the Krypt and customizing / renaming my presets:

Frost She wants half (mind set)
Jacqui Anime AF (official MK11 Jacqui breakdown stream reference)
Skarlet Red Widow (after Marvel villain)
Skarlet The Harlot haha (because, hahahah)
Skarlet Baroness ( G.I. Joe)

Worst part of the Krypt is the shrine. If you want one of the maskless variants....good luck.

I kind of like how the timing worked out on this one, didn't do it on purpose but it ads a little flair to the most basic of brutalities lol.

I wonder if some DLC character dialogue will tie in with the story events. Maybe Shang Tsung knows why Quan Chi didn't come back. Did Shang kill Ermac to take his souls?

It's also interesting that Shang was old in MK1 and later younger. Considering that his destiny was shaped by Kronika who is a master of time. I wonder if they'd say he worked with Geras?


Aside from that, some think Ed Boon loosely teased NightWolf with the 'Green Ax" reference. Just don't know if this is the original NightWolf or if a new character takes on that title.

The green color probably teases that to. Purple for Sindel. Not sure about Red.

Imo....
MK9 9/10
MKX 8/10
MK11 7/10

Time to try 3D MK again?
NEVER! lol 3D doesn't suit MK's play style, projectiles suck in 3D games and the 3D era was when the worst MK games were released. I would disagree with you on the scores there as well, I think all three are 9's.but if I had to choose the best one of the bunch it'd be 11 based on the gameplay improvements, graphical upgrades overall enhancements to presentation and it has the best story mode.

Yep, Shang can change into reptile, ermac, smoke and rain during gameplay but it looks like it's only for a couple of different moves. Also Nightwolf, Sindel and Spawn announced and if you listen closely at the end of the trailer you can hear a quick chainsaw which people are saying points to Ash and a music beat that sounds like the terminator music both of those characters were found in the data mining of the switch version.

3D needs the right hardware to work.
DCU VS MK was great with soso hardware.
