Kenshi master, Pig of the Hut is here to break down the very character he is known for. Ever since Mortal Kombat 9, Pig of the Hut has been very well known for his high level Kenshi and he continues this legacy in Mortal Kombat X. With that being said, below is a character breakdown video for the "POSSESSED" variation of Kenshi.

In the below 'table of contents' Pig lists what all he goes over

Post Evolution 2015 Digit has had some time to recollect and research more into match-ups. It definitely showed when facing Reptile in Grand Finals this month. After his loss to Milky Situation, he has studied up well enough to body any Reptiles in his way. Unfortunately, there was no stream or archive of the 40 man tournament. However, Digit's performance can be described in one word, "dominant."

In between the ESL championship that took place the weekend before EVO, and then EVO, the guys are EpicGP had a large gathering for Mortal Kombat X. Their tournament consisted of many local players as usual, but the icing on the cake are all of the international players that also competed.

International players including PND Ketchup, PND Mustard, EG Nivek, CheapEddie, Af0xyGrampa and Madzin competed against EpicGP. That match footage can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/user/EpicGP/videos

Former Midway employee & Robomodo President/Co-Founder Josh Tsui is producing an amazing documentary about the History of Midway Arcade Games, and to do so, they need your help! He's started a Kickstarter fund to raise money to produce what will become an epic story of the Midway arcade phenomenom of the 90's. For a small taste of things to come, check out this link which features some footage that will be in the documentary:

First, I’d like to apologize as I realize this entire post is about 3+ months too late. I’d honestly intended to make and finish it just prior to MKX’s release as I figured nobody would care afterward...but it didn't work otu that way, so I hope you will all indulge my silly interest in a game which at this point is deader than disco :)

People of Test Your Might, it is my great pleasure to present to you all Injustice: A Farewell:

We had a couple problems with sign ups, but that will definitely not happen again. Thankfully the stream is almost 100% operational. Still having some audio issues to iron out, but now that things are almost perfect the set up for future Brutality events will not be nearly as difficult. Looking forward to that!

Let's all work hard to get more people to attend the event in August! Scroll to the bottom for the date of Brutality - August 2015.

Shoutouts to: Dalton, Will, Brendon, Quentin, Eric, Johnny, Chase, and anyone else I forgot for helping out and bringing equipment to the event.

After over a year since our last show, the original podcast of TYM returns! Only this time with a controversial new host. We talk about the return of Mortal Kombat to the tournament scene and give our opinions of the new game. In depth coverage of MKX's first EVO with some well deserved props going out to many players. A surprise guest segment with 9th place finisher Wound Cowboy. Callouts, blowups, awkwardness, and of course our trademark randomness on this special return edition of KTP. Enjoy and please leave a comment telling us what you think!

Hey everyone!! it's only 1 week since evo, 2 since esl finals and 3 since mkx european finals!!
i still can't believe that in less than 20 days i went across Europe and the whole WORLD!!

Let's start from the top..mkx european finals..
Great event, fun time with friends-couples but disappointing performance.. clearly wasn't my day at all for some reason..some players said that there was lag on the monitors but i really didnt care at all.
The pool before casuals was so funny!! Shoutouts to @st9rm ,Aixy and all the other playes that didnt come to america!! It was the time to go again to USA,not for 3, but for 14 days!!

I want to thank esl, @Clutch8 and all the esl guys and girls that gave me the opportunity to be there once again! By the way... i said that the money mattered to me because of the situation in Greece and Clutch just mentioned it,so there wasnt any reason anyone to "attack" him. Just to be clear!

Here's somewhat of a recap of the past couple weeks, typed on the phone so sorta gave up tagging:

So it began by getting a flight with @PND Ketchup and @PND Mustard from London Heathrow. Thanks to Krystal from ESL (my american guardian angel) we were allowed to fly in economy plus, or as Ketchup says 'were economy plus! You know we're moving up in the world because that puts us slightly above scum!'

11 hours with no inflight audio and 2 intense games of sudoku scattered inbetween, we arrive in LA, where by sheer chance we get the same super shuttle driver I got for the fans choice (a rather Niko Bellic type). Anyhow, we arrive at the safari inn, where perfect legend appeared to have arrived just moments before. The rest of that night involved us getting settled in, gradually seeing the other players arrive, watching sonic fox playing Nidhogg with his brother, and his display of the brokenness of predator.

Day 2, the day of all the theatrics, recording those intro videos for ESL finals. Massive props to the shaolin brother Carl, 'thisssssss, is godlike!' As well as the 'Madzin...? I will break him...' from Lar. Many laughs were had that day.

I decided to do something a little bit different this time around. This experience deserved a face-to-face thank you :) Please bare with me. This was done in one take, and I don't normally do things like this! Not to mention I am coming off of a cold.

One thing I forgot to mention was how honored I was to commentate alongside Ketchup at the EGP tournament. Commentating is something I really want to pursue, and I have been getting great feedback! I cant thank you enough for the kind words and support. One day I'll be commentating professionally. I can feel it :) Check out the video below:

Well GBS has another back to back winner now, GGA Max. Did Max win because of his character or his skill? Please chime in, in the comments. He joins Dizzy and Nikolass as the other 2 with back to back wins.

Last night's theme was 100%. Our GBS has been around for 14 weeks and there are still players that have a 100% win rate over other players. Unfortunately some 100% streaks were lost last night. GGA Dizz 's brand new Cassie lost to Soonk, whom he had always beat previously. Also soonk made it to grand finals against Max. Max had a 100% win rate against Soonk, but Soonk's Predator was able to reset the bracket ruining Max's win streak. Also congrats to SinSlasher Mac. He has been a new guy coming out for MKX. Last season he was a jobber/low card player but last night he was able to break into mid card status by making 4th place! Keep up the leveling up.

This week began southern Virginia's ranbat series to give competitors a little incentive on top of simply winning. Adding in a 1$ entry fee that will be added to a final pot to be distributed at the end of the season to the top 3. Looking at That MK Weekly's history of an average of 20 entrants. $20 x 10 weeks = $200. Our amazing host TGS will be adding in a $100 bonus to add to a possible $300 plus. 22 Entrants gathered for was turned into a night of absolute hype. The rooms were never louder when money was actually on the line and a weeks worth of blowups were put to the test! We saw this week some old legends find there groove and new fighters enter the arena. Get ready, and enjoy the matches!

MKO's Murdoink has recently found a file on the PC MKX that could be an indicator of at least 1 Klassic Stages to come for MKX in the future. THIS IS NOTHING MORE THAN A RUMOR AT THIS TIME & SHOULD ONLY BE TREATED AS SUCH FYI. But one has to wonder, why not Klassic stages & why not a pack w/ 3 or 4? If NRS released this, what 3 stages w/ The Pit do you think should be included in such a DLC Pack? Share in the comments, but check out the image Murdoink shared on his twitter account below:

Hey guys. With all the talk already of how bad Tremor is, it urged me to put together a video for TYM to share my thoughts and ideas on what direction I see Tremor going, and how I play him.

I think everyone is making critical mistakes in day one with Tremor by being too focused on the hype surrounding Tremor pre launch, in which we all assumed he would be a traditional projectile zoner, and because that isn't exactly true and he can be out zoned when you try to zone traditionally, everyone feels lost right out of the box and disappointed. Secondly everyone is basing their opinions on his damage from JIP damage combos, and for me, you won't be jumping around with Tremor so this isn't practical. Thirdly, he doesn't have true 50/50's, so if 50/50's is your entry level expectations for a character to be top tier, then you are going to be disappointed and ultimately begin thinking he won't be viable, but not every character is designed that way.

There are many Tremor combo videos out and about since his release yesterday, but this combo is a real aftershock. TYM user DR has posted a combo video with Tremor that takes up to !00% damage if done right. Literally using tremors to extend his combo, watch how DR's Aftershock Tremor leaves little hope for the opponent

So as you probably know, tomorrow is my 25th birthday. However, rather than celebrate it for myself, I'm going to use it as an opportunity for a special donation drive.

...except the donations won't be used for my sake.

KDZ WINS THE BREAK WEEKLY #317
Sorry about not posting a thread last week. I was REALLY LAZY. Last week we had 12 people enter the break. A number of usually suspects entered this week. Including KDZ, Claude, Arma, and PumPump. But this week we had a special Treat. Although KT smith was not in attendance we had the Appearance of Insouperable, His brother and Facelessman. Insouperable played very well at his first break tournament. Check out some of the matches to see how impressive his playing is.

First Place: RM|EMP|KDZ
Second Place: RM|EMP|Darth Arma
Third Place: Yung Soup

Congrats to KDZ for being the second person to win two break tournaments.
