Mortal Kombat 11 has been out just over a month now and we have been able to review the character roster and who’s dominating online play. In the previous version of the game, the game developers team came up with a mixed character roster. Each character had three different “stances” in the game. This meant that for every character you would have variations in the basic “most wanted” list. This feature is also a part of Mortal Kombat 11. Without further ado, and in no particular order, let’s see who’s owning the current metagame in Mortal Kombat 11
Did you have any doubts? Mortal Kombat would not be the same if Scorpion wasn’t overpowered. We cannot even imagine a game without his chains. Since the release of MK11, there has been a multitude of articles and videos requesting his nerf. He is at the top of the character roster representing the ninja dynasty. His story goes far back when he died and was resurrected and now he will be present in MK11 ready to smash some heads. He is one of the few characters that has appeared in every single Mortal Kombat game.
Just like Scorpion, Sub-Zero is a character that couldn’t possibly be missed from a Mortal Kombat game. He is here fresh and ready to battle raging and bringing ice-based elemental moves to MK11. Fun fact: Sub-Zero has been present in every Mortal Kombat game so far since the beginning.
Talking about VIP’s, Raiden is present in MK11 and his presence has been clearly noted, being played to terrific standards by some of the pros. Mastering his bread and butter combos will lead you to annihilate almost all of your enemies. Some critics are refuting his power, but we’re certain he’ll be picked in future tournaments.
Well well… Guess what is happening here. A fish is coming to the world of the deadliest combat. His name is Geras and is a fresh character to the game. Geras is a strong warrior who can manipulate sands and time. His brutal combos have made him a solid choice in most matchups so if you’re looking to expand your loadout of mains, Geras is a breath of fresh air.
Kollector is also a newcomer to this game. Born in poverty, Kollector managed to steal some treasures from the Outworld people and treated himself with some wealth, status and power. At launch, he demolished most characters in online play just because he has some tricky combos to counter. Now after some time, people have built up their knowledge around him to counter the creature. Kollector is still a safe pick, regardless.
6. Sonya Blade
Sonya Blade has been on the MK roster for a while now and has had her bouts of being pretty strong in previous games. Well, here she is again. She comes back to the game with the same combat strategy and some fancy gadgets.
