MK9 Tier List –
what this thread is essentially discussing mk9,discussing the tier list,as keeping in mind we can edit the mktweakvars,and make the characters better or worse,i wanted to know what you guys thought was the tier list for mk9.
Im going to discuss the tier list of the ninjas(except for cyber sub-zero,sektor and cyrax) from best to worst.
1. Sub-Zero/Reptile:Sub-Zero is excellent in both corners and outside corners,since his BnB combos are superb,sure they are some faults with him(the ice puddle move sucks,his enhanced ice puddle is a little better though,also he does have some combos such as Tundra Slice,which is F+BK,FP+BP,which are mostly very weak) but Reptile is excellent in pretty much every regard(sure some of his midscreen combos are a little tough to pull off but they do reward pretty well) both midscreen and corners,especially corners,he is beast,and you can get 50% or close to it without bars,which you cant say the same for Sub-Zero(sure he can do 55% with xray,but with Reptile,you can boost up to 57% and you can already do close 50% without any bars,with Sub-Zero you can get up to 35%)
2.Ermac/Smoke: both are pretty good overall,but Ermac is a little slow(though his damage output is incredibly high) and some of his combos are tough to pull off,and one of his enhanced specials,the teleport one,sucks.
Smoke is opposite to Ermac in that he is much faster by comparison(his teleport is the 2nd fastest in the game,Classic Smoke's teleport is much slower compared to normal Smoke) he does have some pretty good damage output(but not as high as Ermac without bars) but he suffers in that his invisibility is garbage(same deal could go for Reptile,but with Reptile,his Enhanced invisibility had a bonus damage,which could put a risk versus reward type of move for Reptile,but with Smoke you gain nothing since nearly every character in the game has a projectile,or they can just hit you rendering the enhanced invisbility pointless,same thing goes for Reptile again,but at least with him you have something to go for,here there is nothing,and dont bother with his normal invisibility,and same deal goes for Reptile's normal invisibility as anyone can notice where they are)Lastly,the Xrays for Smoke and Ermac do a good deal of damage and at least are somewhat fast)
3.Scorpion:He is definitely the most noob friendly character of the game,but i will admit that while he has good combos,the specials for him,arent very good,sure the spear is pretty good,the slide is useful when used at the end of combos,but the teleport is very predictable,and the hellfire isnt all that great,enhanced specials are again kind of mediocre,the enhanced spear is probably the worst enhanced special of the entire game since it serves zero purpose,enhanced slide is there,enhanced teleport is mediocre on midscreen but very good when used in corners properly,and enhanced hellfire is probably the only really good enhanced special scorpion has,as he can use it after knocking the opponent and it will always hit and do a good deal of damage,his xray is i think slightly faster than his teleport,but it doesnt do all that much damage(definitely one of the lowest damaging xrays,only 30%).
while i think
4. would be Rain and
5. would be Noob Saibot,im going to play a little more with them,then i will update the thread with what i think of them.
if anyone wants to post their tier list for mk9,feel free to do so!
