Anyone who’s into the competitive side of Mortal Kombat 11 will know of the scourge of Geras.
This time-wielding monster is one of the most powerful characters in the game – some say overpowered – and a lot of that has to do with his speed, huge damage, throw loops and easy to trigger Krushing Blows. He’s been nerfed a few times since Mortal Kombat 11 came out in April 2019, but most players agree these had little impact on his power.
The latest Mortal Kombat 11 balance patch tries once again to nerf Geras. Some of his moves have added startup frames, effectively slowing his down. His Matter Of Time combo – perhaps his best – (Towards + Back Punch, Front Punch, Back Punch) now has 25 startup frames (up from 20) and recovers three frames slower, which makes it less effective. His Time Splash (Jump Down + Back Punch) now has 5 less frames of blockstun, which should make it more risky as a meaty.
