Hi guys, first post here and sorry if this has been done before. I am very pleased to find this forum (ClassicMK also), a huge fan of MKII since release in arcades, loving the videos on youtube from Foozer, 10peaceshow etc, and the posts here on strategy, tiers etc..

So after reading some of the tier threads here and at ClassicMK, I was wondering how the expert players here would go about rebalancing MKII for a Street Fighter STHD type update. Although there are differences of opinion, people in general seem to have identified very specificaly the strengths and weaknesses of characters down to the level of an individual moves speed - recovery - priority etc, so Im sure would be able to articulate a good rebalancing plan for each character.
Would you general strategy be to nerf the higher tier characters, or leave them and boost the lower tier characters, or a bit of both?

A few guidelines may be good to move forward with.
Provide a summary for each character you are rebalancing with specific details on what you are doing, like:
Jax:
Reduce damage on back breaker air throw by 30%
Increase recovery time on Ground Slam special by 15%
Slightly reduce priority of s.HK against air attack's by extending hittable leg area hit box.
etc, etc..

No new moves, or characters, system features etc. Keeping this totaly MKII, but just tweaking the existing moves to bring things more into line. The only exception I would make is to say allow reptile to have a fast and slow version of his force ball ala MK3. Other than that keep it pure. *Something that might be possible one day with a hacked rom, like the SF3 & SF4 PC rebalances that have been done.


Very interested to hear what peoples opinions.

Give Reptile the dash from umk3 and a fast forceball. Give Raiden an air bolt. Give Johny Cage a full screen shadowkick or do his projectiles like Strykers in MKT. Of course don't do anything to Jax, Mileena, or Liu Kang. Unless you wanna give Jax his air wave like in MKT, lol. I'd say give Shang a soul steal move or groundfireballs.
I always thought Lao should have had 2 different hat throws, like in mk9 or an air projectile of some sort. I'm not sure if Kitana should even be touched, but I'd have to say give her a teleport. Could give Scorp and flamebreath move or upwards spears. Give Baraka a blade spin. Subby needs ice clones or ice showers.
