I'm pretty excited for this game, but I've never been good at fighting games and I'm tired of getting stomped online. Any tips where to even begin to get better?

I have been playing it for the last couple of days and haven't seen a screen that would list that stuff. But I also noticed stuff appears to still be locked so maybe it will unlock when the console game is released.

You can unlock Grid, a Premier Skin for Cyborg. The most recent trailer stated you can also unlock gear for the console version, but there hasn't been clarification on what that means.

MK games tend to be better on pad, but either works. Injustice is a bit different mechanically.

Play what you're comfortable with.

So I watched the story already since that was my favorite part of the first game.

Not bad. They followed up the original better than I imagined was possible, but it still doesn't feel as good as the first game.

The "Bad Ending" is pretty damn dark.

Find a character you like to play as and practice.

Short and sweet of it. Fighting games make me want to get good with everyone but you can't really. Specialize.

Learn basic combos. Get those memorized. Figure out spacing and timing. Find out which moves give you good set ups.

Step 2 is to then learn, for the most part, the other moves of other fighters when used against you. Know when to block, dodge, and punish. As you get familiar with your character and what your foes can do, you begin to realize what you are capable of in any given situation.

... and you'll still get stomped online from time to time. Lol.

I was looking into Black Adam since that's who I played in the first game but it looks like they took away his b23 as a launcher and d1 into lightning hands is interuptable now. I feel like I'd have to learn him all over again so I might as well just start with a new character.
It seems like in NRS games they have characters that have fast and safe launchers that deal good damage and they have characters without them that seem like they need to work twice as hard to get going. I'll just need to find who the easy characters are.

Practice makes perfect. Pick one character, stick with them and learn basic bnb combos. Learn basic frame data to know when it's your chance to get a hit in. And I'm sure we'll be hosting casual lobbies so join those for practice.

This is technically our second thread. :3 We didn't have a roster speculation thread the first time around, at least not that I remember. I do hope we make it to a second OT though, I was surprised we didn't make it the first time around.

Are abilities like Deadshot's rocket jump able to be used without gear? That ability looks cool but is it relegated to matches that use gear, so it won't be able to be used in a traditional tournament setting?

I'm not sure how patches work for the Xbox, but I'd assume so as long as your console is in "always on" mode.

Yeah, Star Labs stuff is what I meant by the challenge mode. I still see it as a fairly big difference as that was all "hand" created and was specific to characters. It helped me a lot in getting better at timing and using moves, for example. It also had the three star ranking system so it added replayability in trying to perfect the specific challenge. The living towers, and I fear this, just feel like a series of random fights with modifiers. They can be amusing but I'd always prefer having a specific challenge created.

Oh well! Just wanted to make sure I hadn't overlooked it in my quick browsing for game modes online.
