Gamemk, not trying to take away from your argument, but I have told you many times before and a few people have confirmed that you can actually do MBK/MGP and instant air moves on the arcade cab. I guess you are just choosing to ignore this information?

my point isn't whether or not those things can be done on the arcade.  my point is that they surely cannot be done with the same accuracy/consistency that they are done on console using the analog stick or any other exploits.  i'm sorry, but i strongly disagree with you if you are claiming that mbk,mgp, or any instant air moves were as easy to perform on arcades(with octagonal gates and NOT square gates) as they are on pad.  it is not true.  i'm assuming you played the arcade as much as i did, so i can assure you that at no time during my time playing mk2 did someone do 6 or 7 liu kang mid air fireballs consecutively.  NEVER.  i can also say that i cannot do iafb without using the analog stick.  point is, it's possible to score 100 points in a nba game, but only wilt chamberlain managed to do it.  so just because something is possible doesn't mean that it's the norm or easy.

MBK/MGP is just as easy on a stick as it is on the controller, there is no difference there. Instant air stuff is not as easy as you might think in the middle of an actual match with a ps3 pad. And the reason nobody was doing instant air stuff back when you were playing on cabs (which I have to assume was at least 15 years ago...) was because that shit didn't get figured out until just a few years ago. Yes, it's an old game. Yes, it's broken. Yes, there are much more complex fighting games than this. You're beating a dead horse by complaining about these things, you know.

you're right, but not about the exploiting the arcade.  that can't be done as easily on the original hardware, and the original sticks didn't have a square gate.  so when you say instant air stuff can be done on an octagonal gate, i have to disagree. this is all pointless though since there's no more arcade scene.  obviously the cabs are still out there, but...yeah.  maybe someone could go to an arcade an test it out.  go find an mk2 cab somewhere and try to pull this stuff off consistently.  either way, i just get angry at people thinking there good at this game because they exploit it ,because i remember the arcade days.  just a part of being old i guess.  a lot of stuff that people do would've gotten a beating (or worse) in an arcade setting.    it's just annoying, but it is beating a dead horse.  for me, i just like the competition, but now people seem content to just play as dickish as possible, ignoring the fun of the competition, and reveling in the brokenness of the game's design.  i don't know, maybe it was just my area, because enough people must've exploited the game for boon to create the run button.  i guess it's just not as fun without run. i lose to doc holiday all the time in umk3, but it's way more fun playing umk3 than watching someone walk into a corner the entire match in mk2. 

it is what it is.  i just don't understand why someone would take any satisfaction in doing instant air fireballs, fans, or mbk, or mgp.  it's not winning.  it's glitching the game.  meh.  to each his own.

great thread everyone, a lot of interesting points.  It's threads like these that will keep MK2 alive for years to come!

Personally, I have a much easier time beating every character except top tier when I use Shang (yes, I do have one alt and I use Shang most of the time!) however against top tier I seem to have better luck with Sub.  He just has better options against the top tier guys.  But Shang works everybody else!

Fooz yes you won the majority of randoms but they were all excellent and fun
and the girls vs Kang I won 1 each w Mileena and Kitana in about 10-12 matches
I'm def not used to playing a Kang that level
but like I said we can do 20 soon if you want

obviously I've played great Jaxes...I put him at the 3 spot, not 12 lol
so you've played a Jax you couldnt beat with Kang?
coz I think they're pretty close in strength
though IMO Kang does better vs Mileena than Jax does vs her, yeah?

and I agree Icy-Balls yes! it IS threads like these that keep MK2 alive and kicking!  Evil
(even though I was hoping to avoid discussion of the arcade version
but...whatever floats your boat)

also to the claim that Kitana's iafs make her better than Mileena
well once I stop LOL...
I will say that it is totally possible for Mileena to time her air sai vs Kitana's iafs
so that Mileena doesn't ever get hit
much harder to avoid Mileena's sai however because she is throwing 3 for every fan Kitana's throwing

also if anyone still thinks Kitana's higher...watch me fight Nikidemos' Mileena
he has possibly the best out there
I'm lucky to win 1 of 4
iafs don't do much vs a player that smart
and the roll is very hard to block and punish as he isn't stupid about using it

Close, but no. The only time my liu lost against you was once against your mileena. Your kitana never won a match. I played 12 matches with you, and won 11.

And yeah, back in the day my liu would get destroyed by xiongbros, dvdcsn, ahimsa, rival317, and kanomk2 all jax only players. Kanomk2 would random but we always had to have liu vs jax and he would pound me. Some of those on that list have spanked me as recently as 8 months ago. How many jax players are there now?  Roll Eyes

again, you can avoid mileena's sais by ducking them.  so how can she extract damage from mid-air sais if her opponent is ducking from fullscreen?  anyway, if i had programmed mileena i would have given her zero jump in option vs crouched opponents if i was going to let her keep air sai with the same properties.  that would completely destroy the sai spam army because it would have zero effect on the game except running the time out for draw games.   so how would she get in?  i would remove the attack properties from her teleport and make it a straight teleport which lands out of the attack range of her opponent.  now she's in.

Jason...  NO I am not DJ_Doc_Steel, he is a cheater and a HACK!  Sub ZEROs ICY balls is my main and I have only one alt where I use Shang, I am not good with anyone else yet, trying to master one char at a time!

Icy: I knew you weren't Dj Doc because he's one of the biggest douches to play MK2!
and you've always been respectful of players
but when you said Shang only...he's the only one I knew of

you can duck Kitana's iafs too
my point is that Mileena is throwing a lot more projectiles that Kitana has to duck
than vice versa
and Mileena's are a simple release HP action
whereas doing one of Kitana's iafs is like playing Twister on your controller!

Fooz I def won 1 w Kitana but whatever
I'll do better next time anyway as I won't play so stupidly aggressive  Grin

You're mistaken, I counted how many times I lost with liu. It was once, against mileena. But yeah I'd be down to play some more on og mk2  Smiley
