    Shit, son, that is the real money.

    SwiftTomHanks missiles are coming

    Will be there.

    Hopefully within the next few days we can get a time table to see if it's even worth being there on Friday if MK is going to be a 2 day event. If it's a one day event, I'm not sure if I want to travel all that way for a few hours of MK.

    For that kind of money, why not? Who all is confirmed on going? I feel like you of all people could easily make top 8 and at minimum recoup your costs of going.

    Wow, good shit MLG and WB (and whoever else) for getting that prize money. $6k for 1st place is what, the 2nd most prize money for 1st in MK9 ever? That's awesome, MK players need to get paid! Good luck to everyone attending.

    I would like to ask, is the rules the same as the previous MLG MK event? That event's rules were terrible IIRC. Is there some sort of collaboration with the MK community about the rules?
