Mortal Kombat 11 Cuts the Grind and Increases the Loot
Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11 has just gotten a lot better. A new patch has been released by NetherRealm, and it addresses many of the things people felt were wrong about the game. In particular, the Towers of Time mode isn't as forboding, the Konsumables work better, and great strides have been made to eliminate the grind.

Let's start with the grind. It was terrible in Mortal Kombat 11 at launch, and update 1.03 fixes that. More Koins are doled out in towers, and people get more Hearts from Fatalities. Early reports suggest the rates are double or triple what they once were. Also, everyone who updates the game and logs in by May 6, 2019 will get 500 Hearts, 1,000 Soul Fragments, 1,000 Time Krystals, and 500,000 Koins. 

The other Mortal Kombat 11 Tower changes are all largely positive too. The Towers of Time were accused of feeling like they were forcing people into getting and using Konsumable items. The AI difficulty has been rebalanced and opponents' health values have been lowered, so it is easier to win without using extra items. If you do use Konsumables, they have shorter cooldowns, work better, and have better targeting.

Here are the full Mortal Kombat 11 patch notes for the 1.03 update:

General Gameplay Adjustments

• Fixed an exploit that allowed for more than one variation of a character to be set as default, which could then result in an online desync when trying to select that character
