Hey guys! Once again, I bring you a Quan Chi Variation guide, this time focusing on Warlock Quan Chi.

I've actually heard a lot of people saying that they think Warlock Quan sucks/is ass, even I thought that at first glance, but post patch I feel like Warlock really does have a rightful place in the game. Warlock Quan is the Buzzsaw or Kenjutsu of Quan Chi, you're not going to have this as your main variation but you can certainly use it if the matchup calls for it.

Quan counter zones better than most characters in the game due to his Warlock F3 and df2, giving him a free 11 frame mid that tracks you anywhere on screen, even knocks down which allows you to poke with it and advance if you see it hit for some pressure. It wiff punishes almost every fullscreen move, which makes him a nightmare for characters like Jacqui Briggs or Kenshi.

Despite the extremely forgettable tournament name, "fighting game tournament" was a memorable event for most of us.The MKX squads from Buffalo, Toronto, and some from Cleveland all met, great matches were played, and meals were eaten in nice United States sized portions. I'm sure we did GameOn, our super modern venue proud, testing their ability to run their largest and loudest event yet.

Our top 3:
1: Cr HoneyBee (Swarm Queen D'Vorah)
2: Doctor Stab (Impostor/BoneShaper Shinnok, Relentless Jason, Cybernetic Kano)
3: Cr Biohazard (Lackey/Ruthless Ferra Torr, Relentless Jason)
Enjoy the bracket money and pot bonus!

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...

Last weekend, the largest grassroots tourney in the UK gathered in Birmingham, England for VS Fighting 5!! The tourney recieved a pot bonus from NRS in the amount of £6200 (approx $10k) and had an extremely amazing showing from all players, especially in the Grand Final's where the German Madzin would come back from Loser's & clean sweep the GF's 6-0 over AF0xyGrampa to win FIRST PLACE in dominating fashion. If you missed out on the action, here is the Top 8 videos from VSF5 thanks to Electronic Dojo, who streamed the entire event. Check out the playlist of the Top 8 right here:

Yesterday, Maximilian posted a great video about the future DLC of MKX. Even Ed Boon himself even Tweeted it out to all his followers later yesterday as well. If you haven't seen it yet, check out the video below. It's very well done, and definitely worth a watch. Max makes some really good points & the idea about the cyborg ninja is great (one cyborg w/ Ketchup, Mustard and....Soy Sauce...variations haha). I also think personally that the Kombat Pack 2 will include the 3 fightable characters from the MKX Story Mode (Rain, Baraka & Sindel) along with a 4th character, though I think it's another character who was in the story mode as well. And to throw it out there, in my position, I have zero knowledge of any plans NRS has. My guesses are as good as yours, but the story mode 3 is just too easy to pass up. So check out the video & tell us what you think. Is Max right? Does he make sense? I think so. It would be dope to have several packs of DLC, and keep using MKX as a platform à la what Capcom did with Street Fighter 4. Would also make sense to include guest characters that rival the other guest characters (Freddy vs Jason? Alien vs Predator?) But share your thoughts & discuss these ideas.

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:

So after months of playing Scorpion, pre-patch and post-patch, I feel like I can make a pretty accurate assessment of the character and his variations. Scorpion is a pretty good character. Mid tier, possibly high mid tier. I'll go over all the major categories that make a character and rank my boy Scorp.

I’ve been meaning to write this for a little while, but life has been keeping me busy and you guys kept providing which left me putting it off, so apologies for that. But here we are, let’s all take a little step back in time and look at the salt that has seeped from the community recently, starting with Evo.

Although EGL's inaugural $10,000 tournament got off to a bit of a .. rocky .. start this weekend, by Sunday most of the issues were straightened out -- and we were treated to a highly enjoyable Top 16. With Yomi travelling to make the event, there were a lot of familiar high-level players appearing in today's Top 8, and a lot of great matches to be played.
