    Back on the weekend of 8/25 the UK's biggest gaming festival took place, Insomnia. There were 13 games being played in 3 days including Mortal Kombat 9. Our UK players were in full force with BengmanUK, Phosferrax, Strykie, 12 Gauge, Kosu, Shadow, Moonspell, OmegaK, Circlemasher and of course the condiment brothers, Mustard and Ketchup and more. Below is the stream archive for some of the tournament matches. Not all matches were able to get streamed, so if it looks slightly incomplete, that's why.

    Just a little disclaimer.

    Kosu and Moonspell are from Poland. Not the UK, they traveled a fair way to take part.

    Well, i stopped counting My drops after two fights lol.
    My rusty out dated Kabal was awful. The only reason i was able to poll this off was thanks to Kosu - I've been along with him since a year now. I also had the great opportunity to have best Sektor player as my close neighbor and he is our friend. Without these two guys that Kabal wont stood a chance.

    Next time we play, I will come prepared with Kabal and own controller.

    STORMS - Thanks buddy!

    yeah but you're kabal so dropping combos isnt important *Kappa*

    Hey MoonSpell

    You guys ever going to upload those FT5's? Be cool to watch them back considering not much else was streamed.

    Great tournament great experience. Gutted I couldn't stay an extra night for beer related shenanigans. Grats to Moonspell good job and a hype final for sure. :)

    Yeah, We will upload everything we got. Its all on Shadow's Laptop HDD now. He's got a kid and frustrating girl around so it will take him some time to get it all rollin' on YT.

    But, we will have everything xD

    Thanks guys for coming. It was an honer to play and get through EU's best players that made to EVO, though am still sad that UFG and Foxy couldnt make it. I wanted to play them badly...
    Maybe on next tournament I will have the opportunity. All I need is two more to close my "list". Looking forward to see those guys there - and the rest of You as well.

    One more thing:

    1:19:27 dat 2 frames of invincibility.

    Grand finals were tense, good shit to moonspell. Such an uncanny ability to avoid nets. Not understanding why Mustard is using dash d3 to avoid iagb though. Dash crouch block works the same and no risk of being whiff punished.

    I'm not being biased. But I was the most impressed with Mustard at this one.

    Taking a 7-3 matchup down to the very last round AND resetting the bracket was the biggest achievement of the tournament imo.

    Better to not take the chance to get hit by the gasblast due to the fact you're blocking. D3 makes it 100% duck the gasblast.

    trial and error, d3 avoids the blast every time which was my main concern, but i dont have any kabal players to practise with so i didnt know there was a better option.
  22. nothing more to say.

    STRYKIE Oh if only you knew...

    First time I've seen most of this after the tournament since I was commentating and I had to keep it kinda civil lol, nothing worse than having your tournament life fucked over by this game's lazily programmed, wonky input detection. Was a fun weekend tough, good to see/meet everyone and congrats once again to MoonSpell , hope you're having fun with that stick that would've come in handy :p
    Put 2 and 2 together and you'll figure out I know first hand how it feels man. :( Still in awe of you though, nobody else in the community can say they've come that close to winning 3 majors in a row. :)

    (for anyone curious, I was on match point during that round, the 1st game wasn't streamed)
