Mortal Kombat 11’s difficult Towers of Time are getting tweaked to be easier and more rewarding

2 min read

Look, I’d just like to state for the record, that any mention of me having my ass handed to me yesterday in King of the Hill is a downright lie. I am the greatest fighting game player on the planet and there’s no proof otherwise of my claims. Also, I can’t fight you today in Mortal Kombat 11, I have an upset tummy. Anyway, Netherrealm’s latest brawler is out, it’s wild and I love the damn thing with the passion of a thousand exploding rectums after having been exposed to KFC Dunked Zinger Wings.

What I don’t like, is how the Towers of Time have been harder than two-week-old Christmas fruit cake. There’s a variety of reasons why the one mode that is supposed to be a koin bonanza, happens to be so unrelentingly difficult, ranging from opponents being punch-sponges who can shrug off your best attacks with glee to the fact that certain modifiers have been dialled up to 11.

You play that tower where Sektor’s missiles home in on you during a fight? I’d swear that Michael Bay had designed that stage, judging by the number of explosions that go off. Combined with other factors, the Towers of Time are clearly in a problematic state right now, but it’s not something that can’t be fixed in a jiffy.

Netherrealm’s own Kahn, Ed Boon, has addressed these concerns, with the recent Kombat Kast also detailing upcoming fixes. Enemy health will be scaled back, while modifiers within matches will also erupt less often and can be blocked. How this will tie into the rewards system remains to be seen, as Netherrealm wants the grind to feel fair yet doable. On the plus side, everyone will soon receive some ash in their digital wallets, in the form of 500 000 koins, 1000 souls and 1000 time krystals.

So chances are pretty high, that you can grab around two premium costumes with the time krystals alone. Kool.

  1. Super happy NRS are playing ball (even though they are the ones who punctured it). Now if they could get an offline mode. Whats the point of playing it on Switch if you have to be tethered to a wifi connection.

      SP campaign and the klassic towers can be played offline, it just doesn’t dish out rewards until you connect again. Naturally online modes need to be online. The Krypt, however, requires online because of its use of the koins.

    “the passion of a thousand exploding rectums after having been exposed to KFC Dunked Zinger Wings.”

    Here’s something literally nobody wants to know: back uni 2012 I ate 29 zinger wings and a zinger burger in 1 sitting because I was into food challenges. I bled from my butthole for 2 days and since then whenever I eat even mildly spicy food it feels like I’m shitting hot lava.

    Anyways MK11 is phenomenal and I’m glad Netherrealm is paying attention to their fans.

    Video Games have become depressingly anti climatic, the player always walks away feeling butt hurt MK 11 is probably the last game I’m going to buy brand going forward, I never though my favourite pass time would end up making me so cynical.

      It’s in a very different space to how it used to be 10 years ago, that’s for sure.

    So I’ve been playing video games since I can remember. The one thing that drives me into a rage quicker than anything is spamming moves. So in mk 11 they decide to give computer the ability, no, the quarter smashing cheat of having this option as consumables which are unlimited and unrelenting. I love a good challenge but this is not it. I do not like having to be forced to using cheap tactics and consumables which I lose after a match to trick me into farming a stupid crypt that nobody has ever and I mean ever liked to grab some “ooh I know that from the lore” bullshit item only to never use it or it be that useful because of the delay to use said bullshit. This could’ve been an amazing launch but ed boon still thinks ya need quarters to play his games. Remember mk2 arcade the soothsayer? Fuck you boon.
