    While Kitana needs to dial in the entirety of the B231 string, she can do her stance cancel after the second hit instead of the third. This is when stance cancel into throw is ridiculously dirty.
    Also the chip damage that Razors do is crazy. It's 17.50 chip for each fan. So you're looking at a free 5% chip anytime you do a string that gives all razors on block.

  • WutTheDeuce
    WutTheDeuce 28 days ago

    I don't think her stance cancel is that good. It's definitely reactable, and fully punishable.

      @Krazy Tarkatan You must not look at replies when Boon posts things on Twitter. Or at any of the bigger reddit communities for the game. Boon does troll people that constantly ask for things, but too many of the responses he gets about Mileena go too far.

    • Krazy Tarkatan

      Athenis I see no proof of threats all I see is put Mileena in

    • Athenis
      Athenis Day ago +1

      The disrespect isn't aimed at her, but at the very vocal players going beyond what is acceptable to try and get her added, acting like entitled brats and harassing NRS staff with threats. There's plenty that want her and don't act like that, but the vocal minority gets all of the attention.

    There is no frame trap if you cancel into the sai. There’s a huge gap between the string and until the sai comes out. Liu Kang can just f43u3 you and get his kb. Any character can just attack you and the fan won’t come out. This variation could have been good if she just wouldn’t have those circling fans. Then you could actually go for a frame trap: hit them with the fan tornado and while they are hovering throw the sai. That way, by the time they get up you will already have recovered and the fan will come out even if they attack you. Also you’re plus.

  • Ira Gabelić
    Ira Gabelić 28 days ago

    I absolutely love that variation. It's definitely a lot better that in was before the patch, but i feel like many people are overrating it currently because of the fact that it is somewhat new considering rarely anyone played it before the patch and she plays completely differently now.
    Btw there is no way to combo into seeking sai unfortunately. About the b231 you aren't doing it wrong, it's just that on player 1 side you can't connect all 3 razors after the b232, but you can do it on the player 2 side. However on the player 2 side razors don't jail from the blocked b14. I hope they will still improve on this variation .

  • StefanPanMK
    StefanPanMK 28 days ago +6

    I think opponent can hit you out of the Seeking Sai after B231, but I'm not sure. If they can, the sai won't drop, keep that in mind.

    Fair assessment... I’ve honestly gotten used to playing both FF and HB vari with Kitana. She does have a few issues which I hope they address by the release of Terminator next month. I love her character and she needs some attention from NRS on a couple things just so her basic functions are even with the majority of the cast.

    0:18, that's essentially what it is. The Mileena variation, hit the Sai right on the head Mr. UnderDawg sir, Lol. But for real though, don't the dive-port kick and other Sai moves look and feel a bit slow than it should.

    xdy FaZi 28 days ago +15

    I am a highborn kitana main and that pressure that you are showing is fake they can interrupt the start of frames of the projectile without you being able to throw it out completely, you have to use the stab to catch them trying to punish since the stab has no gap, but the two are react able.
    Edit the two options can be Os very easily online

      @Robert Dukarm wow you sound real smart, lol.

    • Robert Dukarm
      Robert Dukarm 28 days ago +2

      @sci yer7 Yeah, "completely" is over selling the idea. Kitana is a prediction based character; she has a good tool set but it's dependent on reads. In that case you will beat the opponent with anyone really. This is why people don't regard her. I still main her since she's the "funnest" character for me.

    • sci yer7
      sci yer7 29 days ago

      @Robert Dukarm your absolutely right. But you still gotta be more creative then that.

    • Robert Dukarm
      Robert Dukarm 29 days ago

      Fan fare is completey dependent on hiw well you can use Air Flutter. It Kitana's true "mix up".

  • Augusto Henrique
    Augusto Henrique 29 days ago +20

    The sai pressure can be taken away by a simple hit or in that case a fireball (sai is slow and fade if u punch ) =X . The sai will be gone after u get her with a hit or another projectile.
    The sai KB is complicated to do it, cause people don't fall for that so easy, (3 things on hit... =S) not players that are in the game in a long time. And her other KB, that must hit a combo with 9 hits - almost gone in Highborn, BUT u can do it in the corner, but also - not that easy.
    If u got hit by teleport on block, just duck the fan. Also, a F4 Kang can get u with F4 while using the fan. Take care. The teleport does not combo - to be honest, that's so lame for her. She needs combos.
    The Edenian Fans: The thing is: do B231 or B14+ DB2 or B34 (almost always +1) and hold 2 then press F - U must pratice that A LOT for not get negative like -9. It's not that easy, BUT it's risky and I know all about that. Sometimes u just need to press F and will get +1/0/-1.
    And I must say: Even on pressure +1 if u use B231 has a gap for a 7f poke if you u do it after a neutral jump for ex (Sub Zero's fun time) - and B14 (ends on high) - guess what ? D2 bro !
    Like u told and realize, the mind game with her is pressure, but u do not need to respect the sai for ex. The game will hold the chains while using sai/fans/cancels. B231 is a very complicated string, whiffs if hit on jump and uu got punished for that. Highborn keeps iit better using B14.
    Watch this:
    If they dont fix Kitana, bro - this is gonna be sad. It's not about being a cheap character, it's about not messing around by trying to play good. I'm playing Highborn and watching good players like Shadow X and Jack Ashe, they all main her - it takes time. In the end of the day is Kitana and whoever works on her was unahappy with life, cause she has problems. Just sad.

  • pokespritemaker3
    pokespritemaker3 29 days ago +17

    The devs were better off giving Kitana a different variation than giving her Mileena moves. I would have loved Royal Storm or Assassin variation from MKX back. Plus lore wise, it wouldnt make sense for Kitana to have her sai. She hates Mileena lol.

    • Brooke Maddox
      Brooke Maddox 5 days ago

      Keith Mjali maybe the devs felt bad about jade not being on MKX that’s why they probably put a variation based on her moves and they probably did the same in MK11 and probably to make us think that mileena is not coming back after all she doesn’t really need her mileena’s sai kitana has a good amount of moves just about her

    • Keith Mjali
      Keith Mjali 26 days ago +1

      @Brooke Maddox Here's a little fun fact, Sonya Blade in MK1 was the one who originally used the Square Wave (it was more of a punch back then), when she wasn't playable in MK2, which is where the twins debuted, it became Kitana's special move (which later evolved into "the Butt of Doom" in MK games after). But to me, she is female Shang Tsung lol.
      Also, Dead doesn't always mean dead, especially in Mortal Kombat. And after doing some research, Mileena has been revived before, twice actually (by Shao Kahn and Onaga) and let's not forget there are many unfinished clones in Shang Tsung's flesh pits, so lore-wise it's not near impossible.

    • Brooke Maddox
      Brooke Maddox 27 days ago

      Keith Mjali Basically she didn’t steal them, She did have a jade variation in MKX but that’s because jade was not in it but now that she is back Kitana does not have it anymore and About mileena is the same thing I mean she is dead after all so is not like she’s getting her sai’s back lol

    • Keith Mjali
      Keith Mjali 27 days ago +1

      Ikr, but at this point Kitana is the female Shang Tsung/Shinnok, she steals every female character special move from Sonya to Jade & Mileena. So let's just assume Revenant Kitana stole Mileena's soul in the Netherrealm, Lol.

    • Nacho__06
      Nacho__06 28 days ago +1

      Dorian_ BJE yea I love fan fare, but highborn is pretty good, a great tip is to hold forward after you input edenian razors, it makes them always hit

    • Dorian_ BJE
      Dorian_ BJE 28 days ago +1

      Nacho__06 I find that Edinian Razors are to inconsistent and the crushing blow requirement is just ridiculous, everyone says she’s more of a pressure fighter in highborn but I just don’t see it as everyone seems to done with that variation...I tend to apply more pressure with fanfare as her zoning options are not great, yes it can be difficult to break defensive opponents but that when fan flutter helps a lot

    • Nacho__06
      Nacho__06 28 days ago +1

      Dorian_ BJE Fan Fare has better combos but at high level is really hard to break their defense and when you do they always have breakaway. You need to play super sneaky and clever. With highborn you have more pressure and better damage with easy combos

    • Dorian_ BJE
      Dorian_ BJE 28 days ago +1

      Fanfare is the better option in my opinion

    • Robert Dukarm
      Robert Dukarm 29 days ago +1

      I will always use Fan Fare, If you know how to use air flutter most of your combos will come from a jump starter, and that means almost 30% on a meter. I'm not willing to drive people crazy with air sai just yet. We'll see if Sindel is good, and if not, I'll just try to master this variant and fully main Kitana for the rest of this game's life cycle.

  • Cody Testerman
    Cody Testerman 29 days ago +6

    Nice understanding of the character bro! She is for sure good, and was good before the patch. She has good zoning, space control, and pressure. I think it’s balanced by not having high damage unless you have a crushing blow locked. Plus her anti zoning by using teleport or sai is always fun. Good guide!

      Maka's Right Pigtail I’m sorry but if you’re doing an 8-12 hit crushing blow combo and barely getting 260 damage then there’s something wrong bro. I main Kitana and if you do an 8 hit combo into her df2 crushing blow it’ll do at least 300 or more damage no matter what strings you use. I don’t think you know what you’re doing with Kitana if you only getting 260 damage off of s crushing blow

      Ancient Guy they removed his easy kb post release too. raidens main fix is to separate teleport from special moves and he has it on all variations. and don't slow it down at all. his raijin variation must eat 0-50% damage before he can deliver damage. Mathematics plays a roll. The variation is invalid. Add teleport and you can be in some ones face an deliver damage. QC should make tele attacking combo starter. Now he is top t.

    • Ancient Guy
      Ancient Guy 28 days ago +4

      Her damage was low because of her fan combos, so she would get fair damage around 30-35% easily with 1 bar. Now they removed it. Like Raiden's overhead combo starter. I would rather if they made her frame data worse than removing her combos.
