It would be nice if we could have our two gear abilities in competitive mode. When the gear system was announced, I wasn't exactly thrilled about the stats, i.e. strength, ability, defense, and health. That's fine in single player for someone that isn't as skilled at fighting games. But it doesn't belong in multiplayer. I was excited for the abilities and aesthetics customization though. I was thinking that instead of 3 variations like in MKX, we'd be able to customize our own variation with different abilities. I thought they were moving a step forward with the variation system. But we can't use them in ranked/competitive mode. And I have not met one opponent in Player Match or KotH that doesn't go straight to match options and pick competitive mode. And if you don't select it, they back out. So what's the point in having the abilities? It's pointless to practice with them unless you're strictly a single player gamer. I dunno. Just my thoughts but I'm not seeing anyone bring this up.
