Scorpion is becoming the most hated character in Mortal Kombat 11 for online players according to Rooflemonger

Mortal Kombat 11 has been developing in interesting ways since the title's release back in April. Although there are a number of top tiers that are succeeding for various reason, one character's ability to take advantage of the game's slower neutral game is apparently garnering some hate.

That character is Scorpion — someone who is often seen as the icon for the series these days. Rooflemonger has released a video detailing why Scorpion is both so strong and is developing this level of hate from players within the community.

First off, it's pointed out that Scorpion's neutral game is naturally good as a result of his normals. He also appears to have great damage output thanks to his searing buff.

However, it's one of Scorpion's most trademark specials, the teleport, that's making things troublesome for certain users and characters. Due to the slow pacing of the game, Scorpion is able to deal with zoning quite nicely.

Scorpion's tools makes him particularly strong against many of the cast's lower tiered fighters. As if they didn't have enough problems to begin with, Scorpion is one of the more common characters engaged with while playing online.

As strong as Scorpion's tools are offline, they become even more difficult to deal with while online. That teleport that's normally punishable might not be punished correctly with lag.

Although Scorpion is coming across as annoying to fight against for some people within the community, Rooflemonger is adamant that Scorpion actually isn't the best character in the game. Still, he has an excellent match up spread and an excellent set of tools that can come across as frustrating for beginners to deal with.
