    1. Leonard Sengere

      You’re correct on Rambo. These new characters, from left to right – Rain, Mileena and Rambo.

              I used to use Scorpion,but i feel like he’s a Noobies‘ character because anyone can easily use Scorpion let’s be honest.Its like bragging about the e-drag Attack in Clash of Clans or using Bayern/Juventus in FIFA

              1. Tigu

                I beg to defer the lord of the underworld is not that easy especially in the latest games were he’s been made older and slower. gone are the days were any id.iot wld just press random keys and use a special attack. If any1 can use scorpion in the latest games and win anokiya munhu iyeye.. nemamwe ma characters aapo ari fast and deadly iwe pakaipa. With that said ndina sub zero🥶 mese muri vana

              2. Captain Samsung

      Yes, cosplay in Zimbabwe! If you are shy, there are plenty of characters that have iconic, more normal looking outfits that you could cosplay! One of my past favourites was MCU Nick Fury! If the tournament is too soon for you, Comexposed Converge 2022 is coming up end of October! Make a day of it with the kids, nephews and nieces and geeky significant others. It will be fun!

          Keyboard suggested the German style spelling!
          For sure, some Zimbos will lash out at some of the more risqué costumes, but here is a couple of ways I saw others handle it at past events:
          – Wear simple merchandise like character t-shirts, upper-body print shirts or just the character colour schemes
          – Wear one iconic piece of the costume (a sash/scarf, a mask, a visor, a glove, a jacket, a weapon etc)
          – Pick simpler characters like day one Netflix Daredevil or Uravity in school uniform
          – Make a more modest remix of the costumes (full top instead of bikini top, skirts instead of tights, tights instead of skin etc)
          – Have a costume simple enough to put together onsite
          – If you have to travel fully suited up, avoiding public transit! Costly if you don’t have your own ride but better that than getting assaulted by idiots.

    Shush, y’all ain’t got my respect cause you didn’t acknowledge Jacque Briggs Upgraded, the most broken character in MK11.
