6 february 2016 players from all over europe traveled to The Netherlands to compete in mkx. We had great players from different countries like: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France and Germany. The tournament got 45 kombatants which is pretty nice. During the tournament we had amazing matches in poules and during brackets we had quite few upsets and intense matches that went down till the last round.

I am very proud to say that we now have a plethora of new variation banners to use, including various tournament-related variation (mood) banners, banners I would consider "other" banners as well as very delayed Injustice variation banners.

Here's a tease at a few of my favorite ones added:

Also, not mentioned in the title we have also updated the Mortal Kombat X character icons on the main forum

I've been getting a lot of people asking me about what I think of the possible upcoming Tanya changes, so I made a video about it. If all of these nerfs do happen, I will still main Tanya. She is by far my best character no matter how much they nerf her. I'll probably secondary Kitana though, I've been liking her a lot lately. Even with these changes though I still think Tanya will be a pretty solid character. Hopefully you guys enjoy. Check it out below, and thanks for watching! :)

The UMK3 Ermac combo video now has a brother! Since I made the Ermac combo video , came the idea of doing one similar for Human Smoke, the two most powerful Male Ninjas both which can share a good variety of combos. The other video was a great effort, I ask to be helped by old known players for better results. Ninjagrinder, reviewed the project from time to time, and contributed with some of his ideas; and Ded gave to me some crazy combos he had previously recorded and recorder another one at the moment. So the video was easier and contains the damage text included by request of some players ,unlike the Ermac video. Take in accout that the damage of the Air Throws doesn't show in the Damage Counter, but is equal to 7% of damage (when Damage Protection is activated -which happens in most cases). Enjoy!

NetherRealm's new netcode, which was teased as "GGPO" (Good Game, Peace Out) is taking players by surprise in my opinion. The netcode for NetherRealm Studios' games has been a struggle for years and therefore, their games died out due to poor online. However, the new netcode that is only currently available to those players who have received the Beta codes is receiving about 99% positive feedback.

Regarding the netcode, I looked up a few top players' twitter accounts to see what they've had to say. Judging by their comments and the increased forum discussion here on TYM regarding the netcode, I believe

The ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League Finals may have concluded, but the story is far from over. Throughout the season, a documentary crew from Machinima with the full cooperation of Warner Bros. followed five of the Pro League competitors as they battled their way through to the Finals to get the story from the other side of the screen and dive into the personal stories behind these players.

The resulting series, “Chasing the Cup” began airing on January 28 via the CW’s digital platform, CW Seed, and the series finale will broadcast on-air on February 15 on The CW from 8:00 to 9:00 PM Eastern. This marks the first time in history that a show dedicated to esports will air in primetime on network television, and we could not be prouder of that accomplishment.

Due to a ruling by Mr Wizard, Dual Shock Controllers will not be banned. Players however are responsible for desyncing their controller at the risk of being disqualified. Check out the link below, and the Tweets posted by @MrWizard himself as well:

We all like to play Mortal Kombat! Unfortunatley not all is well in the realm. By now most of you should know that the latest content known as Kombat Pack 2 will not release on PC. Usually this is followed by raging posts, calls to spam and other negative actions that do more harm than good, in the end no one wins.

I propose a more positive type of action, something similar to the petition that keeps growing each day. An action that has virtually zero cost but produces something that we can show the powers above: NUMBERS. Numbers of people who want to play on PC. How can that be done? Well, I am organising an event on February 7th called Kombat Day.

Big shout outs to everyone who attended the event, and even bigger props to NS | Gilgamesh, Kenshinoyo, The Arkayne, Grand Pappy Chris, and Solumindra. You guys helped hold it down and I appreciate it a lot!

Thanks for everyone's understanding with the stream station, and the relative lack of MKX setups. I hope to see more community members bring systems and games in the future; it is a huge help for the event and is part of making sure everyone has a great experience. On the plus side, we recorded the entire 8-entrant KI tournament! I cannot wait to post that video and the Top 5 KI Plays of the Day. We also recorded the tail end of the MKX Meet 1 and the MKX Championship Round Robin from Brutality - Fall Season 2015. So, look forward to those videos being shared at the bottom of this post very soon!

Now, for full results:

Flying out from Boston to LA for the ESL finals was 100% worth it, best MKX related experience I have had so far. The tournament itself was extremely hype to watch in person, but the best part was to get to meet a ton of great people that I had thus far only interacted with via this forum, twitch, etc. A few days before the finals, I also went to the EGP local and, despite going 1-2 in the tournament, got the chance to commentate some matches for the first time, including commentating with @PND_Ketchup, @ARMOR and Nubcakes. Special shoutout to @EGP Wonder_Chef - you were very welcoming to me both at the local and at ESL finals, and you were the one who asked if I wanted to commentate. It was also fun playing some casuals with you at the after party! @EGP_Compton and @Clutch8 - you were both incredibly cool and welcoming as well, I really appreciated it.

In general, it was awesome to see how friendly everyone in

Hey everyone its Jay aka BanTheTesters here to once again drop some nerd knowledge on you for one BIG article. If anyone has ever followed the FGC closely you know that wrestling and fighting games almost go hand and hand, but some of you might not know how close together the groups get, and today I’m here to explain more…​

Has anyone out there have this ever happen to them before? There's this weird freeze or lock out bug that will happen when playing MKX randomly during a match where inputs will drop and both players will be locked out for some time. This bug is rare but when it happens, it's extremely apparent and can completely kill the momentum of the match and throw players off. It's happened before when I've played against @YOMI DJT and @YOMI MITYEAP in long sets of casuals and when it hit, we just said "WTF?" and looked at each other as if our controllers suddenly broke or something of the sorts. I've never been able to capture it on video or have it on stream until NOW.

Below you can see this bug occur at 01:20 in a match of casuals between myself and @EMPEROR_JUPITER. The bug happens at the end of Predator's throw animation at around 01:20. Pay attention to the button log and notice how mysteriously our button logs silence and then mine floods with sudden left over inputs during the span from where we were both "locked out". I was trying to perform an EX straight laser right after my throw on his knock down and couldn't move. Nothing would come out and no inputs were registering. Check it out below:

The largest tournament in TOTFC history, MKX barely beating out Sm4sh with 51 entrants! Competitors from all over the east coast traveled for a slice at what ended up being a $2,000 pot bonus (1500+500 extra for getting the most entrants). Traveling up from Orlando FL were the oD boys, and guys let me tell you they will be a force to reckon with. From Jersey, we had the likes of Jupiter, REO, J360 and more. From Delaware, Mr Dragon. Guys from all over the midatlantic ranging from Maryland to Carolinas. I could not be more proud as someone who helps organize it to see so many new faces and to show people how we do here in va once more.

Let's get into the action! This tournament bread some new rivalries and kindled some already existing ones. This turned into a straight bloodbath between team TGS and oD. It started with a last round nailbiter between Mr Aquaman and Atai, 2-1 in aquas favor the tension was already set, both teams watching and more bracket was to be played. Sticking on the winners side we had the first match to make top 8. With oD 2EZ coming off the upset over the previous TOTFC champ kevodaman, he was set to play TGS Zappa. In what turned into another nailbiter (there will be a theme here) Zappa pulls is out with his shaper Shinnok 2-1. In losers we saw two incredibly close matches between the teams with TGS Yams closing it out last round 2-1 over oD 2EZ and TGS Sidthehaze clutching it out vs oD Full-Autos amazing you guessed it, full auto jacqui. Everytime the teams met it was last round. TGS took this battle, but we look forward to the next time we battle. These guys got some serious MKX game. Check out below for more:

Hey Guys. I was given/donated 4 extra Beta Kodes by some of my friends who for some reason have extra. Obviously I don't need 6 Beta Kodes (2 for myself used) so I thought it'd be fun to host a Single Elimination tournament for both Xbone and PS4 this Sunday night. Winner wins a beta Kode.

Also, I know there are some of you out there that possibly are thinking "Mannnnn I could never win this tournament, I just love Mortal Kombat and would love to try this Beta", well say no more, I'm hosting an official Mortal Kombat X Game show. *Hint Hint* Think of "The Price Is Right MKX"

Yes, the details of this will remain secret until the show begins, but first let's get to some details below:
