The Towers Of Time are more managable since the patch was downloaded. I've played this quite a lot (ahem) and I'm finding the best all-rounder is none other than Sonya Blade. I've won the most with her, gained more Koins and skins as her, and managed to clear a lot of Krypt thanks to her ability to beat the shit out of everyone in The Towers Of Time. I think a lot of the costumes for women are pretty poor though. Sonya has an aerobics outfit. Shao Kahn is also useful because of his power. I've read a lot of the alleged dialogue between the DLC Kharacters and the current roster. Some of it sounds amazing. Spoiler Sindel basically berates him and he loves it. Also, twist: Quan Chi murdered her under Shinnok's orders as a way of making Shao break the rules of Mortal Kombat (so the Elder Gods would kill him and bring about Shinnok's plan). Also, Sindel helped murder King Jerrod so she could be with Shao. If true, the storyline has really been altered.
