So Reptile just got a ton of very noticable buffs for us reptile mains. Below is a video that goes over some of said buffs.

In a nutshell Deceptives damage output is finally on par with nimble and noxious and has a much higher chance of landing big damage due to the en invis buff. He has 101 ways to land his damage which gives deceptive superior combo potential. In deceptive he has access to an unseeable 50/50 that leads to great damage off of a blocked standing 4.

Across all variations he now has a new 50/50 in the corner that uses his enhanced slide. He has easier and more consistent forceball combos which now work on females just as well. His spit is viable in trade wars and combos. His meter building is better due to safe claw. Double slide combos are now easier to do due to the slightly floatier reaction to normal slide.

WE MADE IT

The master and keeper of all things Salty joins us this week along with the UK's master of souls Temjin and the undisputed no.1 match up cop of TYM; Phosferrax! As you might imagine, the recent patch is a big topic for discussion but there's also plenty of tournament discussion. We had Keep it Classy in the UK and SummerJam across the pond.

Ed Boon has not so subtly teased a second Kombat Pack announcement for tomorrow, featuring 4 new characters on his Twitter page! This also comes on the heels of an "Encore". What could it be? WHO could it be? Be sure to follow him to stay up on other major MKX announcements.

At the end of yesterday's Patch Notes stream, NRS announced their would be more big news announced soon, and Ed Boon took to Twitter to announce it in usual kryptic manner. The Tweet, which you can view here, as well as below, but what are your thoughts as to what this could be? Kombat Pack 2? New skins for the newer kharacters? Finally getting a new netcode? PC version fixes? I (Tim Static) think the picture of the moon means that there is some new Klassic stages coming (The Pit as we reported before here) but post your conspiracy theories here!!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the event! A few new faces attended, and according to reports a great time was had. The stream and Challonge were working almost perfectly for us, and with a couple of minor adjustments things will be even better during our next event on September 26th!

Unfortunately we did not have enough KI entrants to run a tournament.

Full MKX results for the event can also be found at this Challonge link: http://powerup.challonge.com/august2015mkx

There were two tournaments: A singles tournament with 27 participants (Round Robin, then Top8 was double elimination) and a 2v2 consisting of 10 teams (double elimination). We didn't conclude the tournament until 1am so shoutouts to Lenny a.k.a KGA LRock for keeping cool and running the tourney and to everyone for hanging in there until the end, we all had a great time!

Hi, fellow kombatants. My name is David Mejia and my ultimate goal is to revive the SoCal scene for all fighting games. I am going to begin hosting MKX tournaments and want to let you all know that the money I make from this is going towards a venue I'm trying to get. I use the money to buy equipment to stream and record matches. I also made a GoFundMe account in case anybody that can't make it to my tournaments still wants to contribute. Through this campaign, I plan on leasing an area in the Inland Empire and creating a venue solely dedicated to creating tournaments for fighting games of all sorts. Let me know if you want to help out or are interested in participating in these tournaments. Thanks!

As some of you may know, our petition has been circulating Twitter and Mortal Kombat fan sites. Our petition is not for a character, or some other type of inclusion into MKX, but for this book to be created. I have reached out to Shawn Kittlesen, who has since tweeted about his interest in this project. We have reached 3000, but I'd like to get this more exposure.

What this book is, or will be is a hardcover encyclopedia type book. Think the Marvel and DC Encyclopedias. It would go in depth about every character in the Mortal Kombat universe, their iterations, history, changes, etc. It would also cover the places/stages/memorable moments within the timeline. I have included in the petition that this book should indeed cover both time lines, along with background on different races, species, whatnot. This type of book would probably require some time, however, MK's 25th anniversary is coming up, and this would be an essential collector's item.

I believe that TYM is a pretty big...

Alberta Beat Down has come and gone again and this year, a new champion has been crowned. Congratulations to the young and talented Aoun! If you have no idea who this player is, remember his name because he's going to be a force to be reckoned with in MKX! After a very hype grand finales against Edmonton's own & TYM's favorite banned member, MashPotatoTower, Aoun's Johnny Cage proved too much! Congrats to this youngin' and I dub thee the Canadian SonicFox.
Results!

2nd Place: MashPotatoTower (Cutthroat/Kano)
3rd Place: Younin (Shaolin/Kung Jin)

You wanted it. I wanted it.

We all desperately wanted it! Well brothers and sisters, here it is.

We couldn't have asked for a better storyline. The beef was real when my boy Pig posted the top 5 MKX players thread. I mean these guys were talking mad smack! Who would have ever guessed that Forever King would not only win the very next major, but beat the man few have ever beaten in top 8, our beloved prodigy, @SonicFox5000 !
