I would love some tips on Baraka!  He is easily the most underused character in MK2, and I have only faced one Baraka that could ever give me trouble, his screenname was "mucho_mango_drink," I haven't seen him for ages but I'm sure he was an alt of one of you high level guys, anyway, he played it really safe, turtle style.  But whenever I got the health advantage he had no prob playing aggressive.

what is a good Baraka strategy?
what are his hardest matchups and why?
and why is he above Sub in all the tier lists (and don't say because of that nasty jump kick! I can still smack him out of the air everytime)!

Hey, Icy Balls! Since the MK2 community is completely dead, I'll answer your questions for you. Baraka's normals completely destroy all of the ninjas. He has faster sweeps with longer range, his roundhouse is just as good (if not better) than the ninjas', and his jab pressure stops the ninjas in their tracks. Sub also can't chip damage baraka from a distance since a blocked ice projectile doesn't do any damage, so he is forced to chase Baraka around the stage. The only thing baraka really needs to fear is the fact that his blade spark goes right over Sub's head while he is throwing ice at him, but if you avoid mindless spark spam, there's no need to worry about it. I hope that helps!

thanks!  That helps!  So sad the community is dead, I have seen a few new tags on MKAK over the last few days, and that was refreshing.  But someone messaged me and said the fake icy balls was back, so I will be using my alt for a while!
