I don't play this game but if I did I'd mess around with Kitana and Scorpion.

Yes and No. Depends on her variations.

Her normals for footsie mix up is is also decent because her low range is the
same as her overhead which can both cancel into roll.

After playing a few matches with ben, i found out that you don't just roll or
teleport kick with mileena mindlessly. In block strings, just end the string or
half way and stop. Her strings are pretty hit confirm-able into roll.

Normal footsies do exist but i also think it's character specific.

Depending on the frames of the cancelled string jumping may avoid both throw
and low bomb options. njp punish ftl.

Rolling bomb is a low.
Sorry, I was taking your character through his paces yesterday. >:)
His strings are a guessing game on their own, never mind that special move
option guessing game.

Ah ok

So Errons command grab can be ducked. I didnt realise that. I should use it
in blockstrings more... mostly just using it as combo ender atm.

So if used on a blockstring it would have to be mixed up with the grab or the
rolling bomb... im not even sure of the rolling bomb is a low lol. Ive barely
used it :P

I have some observations myself.
There are supremely strong zoning variations for characters.

Backdashes have invincibility within their frames, it's why they use meter, but
not for projectiles.
Forward dashing puts you in recovery frames, running doesn't.
"Characters with good high-low strings that are cancellable will rule the
roost." <- the truth.

Jump-ins are less viable than they were in MK9. They are far more easily
Characters with installs have massive advantages.

Trading on attacks with someone who has faster frame attacks than you will get
you killed.

Erron Black's ground tackle is a high throw that cannot be blocked high or low,
you have to duck it.... that's just for Paas btw.

Observations thus far:

You can't footsie in this game. At least not with normals.

Forward dashing is only worth using if you knock someone down because you can't
block cancel anymore. Backdash is kak so l don't understand why stamina is
required. In many cases, it's better to use normals or special moves to advance
or retreat than using the basic movement options available to each character,
which l'm not a fan of, to be honest. Walk and jump speeds vary from character
to character, which leads me to believe that this will also affect tier
placings at some point.

Zoning isn't very strong anymore, but this was an early observation anyway.
Maybe some characters will excel at zoning more than others later down the
line; still early days. At this point, it does seem as though the game is
focused more on offensive play.

Game is very string-heavy but this is MK, so no real surprises there.
Characters with good high-low strings that are cancellable will rule the roost.

Zone has been toned down in MK9. But playing those matches against you does
show that zoning still exist. But you can't mindless spam like mk9.

Not sure if stamina meter for run will give rushdowns a better chance or not.
People are still figuring out the game.

A lot of variations that i thought was going to be good or the forums says it's
the best. Turns out to be the weakest of the 3 variations the character has.
