Mortal Kombat 11 Balance Patch Changes Almost Every Character

Since the release of Mortal Kombat 11 just over three months ago, fans have been learning the ins and outs of each character on the MK11 roster. In doing so, some of these fans have found certain characters that they feel are slightly too powerful while others seem to fall a bit behind the pack. Apparently, NetherRealm Studios agrees that there are some issues with fighter balance, as a new Mortal Kombat 11 balance patch is making a ton of character changes.

Mortal Kombat 11 Patch 1.07 is available now to those playing on PS4 and Xbox One, and it is coming soon to the PC and Switch versions of the game. While this MK11 patch is quite extensive in its reach, what is likely to interest most players are the myriad of character balance changes that it introduces. Indeed, there are a significant number of character tweaks listed in the Mortal Kombat 11 Patch 1.07 patch notes, with every fighter on the roster seeing at least one change aside from Kabal and Sub-Zero.

The totality of these balance changes can be seen, alongside the other changes made by the update, in the MK11 Patch 1.07 patch notes below. Reading these notes, fans will notice that many of the Mortal Kombat 11 balance changes are quite minor, but there are some serious tweaks that will have a real impact on the game moving forward.

For instance, Scorpion's Hell Port is now considered a high attack, rather than a mid, which means that it can be avoided simply by ducking. For many Scorpion players, this change will definitely require some revisions to their strategies, and it is certainly a nerf to the character overall. So too, Cassie Cage has seen some changes that will decrease her overall power level.

On the opposite side sits D'Vorah and Jade, both of whom have received a number of buffs. Certainly, players have been indicating that D'Vorah is one of the worst characters on the Mortal Kombat 11 roster for months, and many will be happy to see that she is now more competitively viable.

In general, players will also notice that some characters have had their health values raised or lowered, while others have received new Krushing Blows and moves. Ultimately, the goal of all of these changes is to make all of the game's characters feel more equal and to make all of their tournament variations feel equally viable. While it remains to be seen if NetherRealm has been successful in achieving that goal, this new update is certainly looking to shake things up prior to the release of Nightwolf in Mortal Kombat 11.
