New Mortal Kombat 11 hotfix reduces tower grinding

When Mortal Kombat 11 launched, critics praised its visuals and fighting mechanics, but found issues with the towers. They required a lot of grinding to level up, and after a while the endeavor seemed futile. Luckily, that changed recently. According to a report by Twisted Voxel, "NetherRealm Studios has released a quick hotfix for Mortal Kombat 11... that has massively nerfed the requirements for all character towers, reducing them by as much as 80 percent after the new update."

For example, a lot of users have noticed that now you just need 10 Fatalities and Brutalities for Level 2. Beforehand, you needed 50. You can see a complete list posted by the outlet below.

  • Level 1: 25 Uppercuts and Throws
  • Level 2: 10 Fatalities and Brutalities
  • Level 3: 25 Krushing Blows and 10,000 Blood Spilled
  • Level 4: 25 Fatal Blows, 10 Flawless, 25 Wins, and 25 Krushing Blows
  • Level 5: 75 Wins, 35 Fatal Blows, 25 Fatalities, and 25 Brutalities

It's great to see that NetherRealm addressed this in a timely manner. Hopefully the stellar post-launch support based on community feedback will continue... excuse me, "kontinue" in the future.

In our review, we said "Mortal Kombat 11 is a stellar fighting game and is one of the best ones ever made... The depth and variety it offers are unparalleled, even by the likes of Injustice 2, another NetherRealm creation. There are so many characters to customize and master — with many more on the horizon — which should keep you enthralled for months to come."
