Wow after seeing the new gameplay trailer for killer instinct

I really want to get hyped for this, but on a gameplay level it seems pretty bad:
Long combos that do no damage after a few hits, the reason UNiB died so close after release before its patch.
Way too easy combo breakers as of the EVO build.
The mixup game seems pretty weak so far, although that's KI...
Invincibility frames on grabs (really...? why would you do that).
X-Factor like mechanic (again, why?)
Ridiculously high hit stop. Seriously, it seems like you could drink some water every time you connected a hit and could still continue your combo.
I remember reading that Jago can blockstun infinite you in some circumstances, probably with his X Factor... seriously, does Double Helix think that's a good thing? They even said he could, so it's intended.
No finishers (yet)

Ultras are pretty cool, but seeing them in every match gets old, much like Fatalities in MK9.

And then there's character designs, however I think Sadira looks better than any other character yet, much better than when she was first teased. Orchid looks fine, not what I was expecting though. Glacius looks weird, but I'm not sure how to feel yet. Thunder looks terrible, good job making him look nothing like Chief Thunder and more like T. Hawk. Sabrewulf is a rat, not a wolf. Jago looks baad, but then again he's a monk so it kinda makes sense.

Then there is the thing about 6 characters at launch and that everyone is gonna play Jago online because free version, but I won't go any deeper into that.

I still want to like this though, and I'm sure at a casual level this could be a blast, but I can't put my competitive player side aside when I play fighting games.

TL;DR: KI might be pretty fun at a casual level, but has flaws on a competitive level that are deterring me from getting excited for it

KI is nothing but nostalgia, Guilty Gear is the real deal.

As a fighting fan enthusiast GG holds way more weight than KI.
