Mortal Kombat 11


Got my Stress Test code for Xbox One! You know what that means!tumblr_pha9j50FJ61rzbxz6o1_r1_400


I wish there was some sort of offline demo. I know that defeats the entire purpose, but I want to get my hands on the game without playing for Scambox Live Gold.


I suspect the beta will have offline. But I will be out of town.


Its not a scam…you are just bitter about everything. Its 5$ a month… Literlaly less than 1.50$ per week to play online and get tons of free games and huge discounts on digital games.
Just stop complaining about everything that doesnt go your way…please. Its beyond tiresome.


What is wrong with you. What, did I kill your dog or something? Why are you always so aggressive with me?


I don’t think you realize how aggressive it is to say things like “scambox live.” The implication being anyone who pays for it is a sucker which is pretty much an invitation to be challenged. Then you seem astonished that people respond negatively… granted I agree that @FallofSeraphs76’s response was overboard but you kind of set yourself up for these things.

More importantly, what is the deal with the amplified moves in this game? Why am I not getting any of them?


You press the Stance button (R1) to make Enhance moves come out. At least that’s what I’ve been doing.


Ah… I’ve changed my control layout and stance is way off in the corner… okay let me try that.

Edit: doesn’t seem to work for me.


Stress test went well!! Connectivity was a sucess and the gameplay so far is cool!


What character are you using?


Baraka. I have somehow gotten his double blade spark once and that’s it. But I have used the flip stance button to do the defensive roll move. NRS has a history of confusing button assignments where if you change the buttons it doesn’t correctly remap their alternate uses and such. Hopefully that’s not what’s happening.


I think paying for online is a scam. The main selling point, going online, is me essentially playing to be beaten and loose over and over again no matter how much I practice. As a bonus I get free TEMPORARY access to games I may never, and probably will never, play and “discounts” on other games to get me to spend more money. That feels like a scam to me, can you honestly say I’m wrong.

I’ll admit, I was a bit more aggressive than I should have been with my phrasing. And I’m probably just going to get shat on again by Seraph. I just feel like my opinions are deviated from the norm and that there must be other people who agree with me. The aggression is partly an attempt to rally them up and give them the courage to break through the masses of people who are shouting loudly about how much they like the things we hate.


Been playing Skarlet mostly for the beta. I wish this beta had a training mode avaliable, I learn my stuff easier that way lol.


You had the button right but I was confused because that’s the interact button not the stance. Since I changed the buttons I was trying to hit my alternate stance instead of my alternate interact. So now I have it sorted. Thanks man.

Yes I can, and since you invited me to I guess I will. What does how terrible you are at online games have to do with whether Xbox live is a scam or not? There’s a huge difference between something you don’t think is worthwhile and something that is a scam.

A scam is something where they lie to you are charge you an amount of money that is far in excess of what they give you. Xbox Live is not that.

And, not for nothing, why do you want to fight about that? You absolutely could ask for an offline demo without saying anything about Xbox live and tons of people would agree woth you. Instead, given the opportunity to move on you double down and offer the weirdest logic I’ve ever heard and then ask me, explicitly, to argue. And I know you’re going to react as though I’m somehow being mean to you in which case don’t say stuff like “can you honestly say I’m wrong?”


So, MK11 is fun so far. Let’s keep the discussion in this thread about MK11, Sí?

So, Baraka really clicks with me. Still learning a lot of stuff, which is hard without a training mode, but I like a lot of his moves so far like to running stabby-grabby and the swipey-swipey-swipey ad infinum one. The Scooby Doo style “Face Off” fatality also makes me smile.*
Edit: that typo was embarrassing…or rather smelly :joy:


I’m learning Scorpion a little. So far he plays pretty well. I lost two fights against a Baraka player but I had fun, so I’m good.


The lack of a training mode or even a moves list you can scroll through outside a match is pretty bad.

So far I’m really enjoying the game. It’s very fundamental - you have to know what’s punishable and what moves you can punish with and when it’s your turn. It’s slower pace means it’s not just wild 50/50 all the time, which I really like.


I’ve just had the moves list on my IPad and I glance at it every chance I get during a match lol. Glad I have some decent fundamentals :joy:


Auto correct is really putting in the work in this thread XD

I just watched a K&M video about Flawless blocking. @FallofSeraphs76 you could try that if people are just going ham with the uppercuts and return the favor with your own uppercut.

Also, could someone explain the point of an online stress test that is limited to one country?


My bad lol

I never use the Stance Button or Interactables so I just assumed that was it
