Mortal Kombat 11 1.19 Update Patch Notes | Small character changes and Kombat League fix

The Mortal Kombat 11 1.19 update patch notes aren’t as noteworthy as the Aftermath patch, but they still do contain some decent changes. While there are some smaller additions to the characters, one of the bigger updates changes an annoying thing about Kombat League that most players will enjoy. Keep in mind that these changes won’t hit Switch, PC, or Stadia for a bit as this patch is only live on the PS4 and Xbox One for now.

The last update added the ability to have a “friendly” rematch with a player after finishing a Kombat League set with them. But sadly this was the first available option on the menu, meaning it was easy to accidentally hit this while trying to find a new opponent.

NetherRealm has now moved it down so that “Next Opponent” is the first option. This is how it used to be. You can still have a friendly rematch but it is lower down on the post-set menu.

There were also some very minute character changes. For example, you can now not use Breakaway after the first hit of Kotal Kahn’s Fatal Blow, the first three gunshots of Erron Black’s Fatal Blow, the second hit of Kung Lao’s Fatal Blow, and the second hit of Fujin’s Fatal Blow. This is a tiny buff but one NetherRealm has seemingly made across the board (for the most part)

Other ground projectiles can now only be parried by low projectile parries. These include D’Vorah’s Bombardier Beetle and Noob Saibot’s Shadow Slide. Kotal Kahn’s totem buffs were also adjusted (but details weren’t given) and Fujin, Kitana, and Kabal also had small bug fixes in addition to some performance and move list corrections.
