Today @Sabin tweeted about holding an MKXL event at Next Level in New York. However, he needs to know the interest level AND what day players would prefer to have it. He needs some very simple and serious feedback from the players.

This one's for the collectors out there who have the Mortal Kombat statues the rest of us drool over. PopCultureShockToys has the best stuff, let's face it. Yes, it's not cheap, but you're also getting what you're paying for.

With this said, in minutes PopCultureShockToys is going to be unleashing pre-orders for their latest Sub-Zero statue. This statue depicts Sub-Zero from MKX

Not only did the stream fail, but my recordings got corrupted. No vods. Very sorry! Next year we will work more directly with Fightsessions and use their expertise to assist us in our weaknesses. This Tuesday night we plan to cast a discussion about the event overall. Please join @ twitch.tv/ryuujin882. I'll be streaming directly from my PS4, so no issues should occur...

Thank you to all the players that made this possible & congrats to the top 3!!
With the recent conclusion of the Plantronics Cup, ESL continues to support the Mortal Kombat XL community by introducing the Community Cup series! As of right now, these cups are being held for Playstation 4 players in the North American and European regions, and entry is for free!
After winning SoCa Regionals 2016, PG|KH Scar was interviewed by Mashable. Despite winning the generously provided pot bonus from NetherRealm Studios, it had essentially become an even greater accomplishment to beat his rival, SonicFox. Scar tells Mashable a little about what he has endured from both SonicFox and the process of adjusting that he had to perform from the recent October MKXL balance patch.

Below, Scar explains a bit of how he practices, plus there's
In the past few hours, EVB has announced that they will no longer be financially supporting their players. EVB wrote via their twitter page that they were unable to generate outside funding to support the team.
This one is pleased to present your SCR 2016 results. Every year this tournament brings out the very best of the best and this year was no different. Stacked, hype, heartbreaking and twisty till the end this event delivered high level play with a variety of characters, new faces and old gods.
UPDATE: Courtesy of @Jynks, we now have the official stream schedule included with this post! See the link below.


From reviewing the link above, it appears that MKX pools will begin at 10 A.M. PST this Saturday, lasting until the bracket is reduced to only the top eight participants. These players will then re-convene this Sunday at 2 P.M. PST to finish the tournament. All of the MKX action will be broadcast at https://www.twitch.tv/leveluplive2!

"The calm before the storm..." - Batman

"And here's the storm!" - Aquaman

...oops! Wrong game. :p

But for real, it truly is the calm before the storm, and now we are treated to a glimpse at what is to come for this weekend's SoCal Regionals! Via smash.gg, the MKXL brackets have been released! Please note that with on-site registration available, these pools are subject to change.

ATP's House
Austin, Tx

1. Henzzar (CSZ, GM Sub)
2. BLTMr.Nauj (Sorcerer/Summoner Quan)
3. SWM500Magnum (Inferno Scorpion)

Our first weekly since the XL balance patch! With less than a week of major game and character changes *** definitely hit the fan. Henzzar benefited from his character buffs. Ghost, JerzeyReign and myself all scrubbed out. Brucifer had his best run yet. And SWM500Magnum became the people's champ.

In Losers Semis ATP and SWM500Magnum played for the first time since ATP called Magnum out to a FT5 Inferno mirror. The original conditions were that the loser was to drop their main (Inferno or Tarkatan) forever. In the heat of the moment, they dropped those conditions for more dire stakes: bragging rights in FT3 tournament set. The result speaks for itself...maybe Inferno isn't so bad afterall...especially since the balance patch.

Grand Finals Henzzar (L) vs BLTMr.Nauj (W)
Despite the character buffs for Henzzar and Nauj looking a little unsure with his main, huge props to Henzzar for running it back twice against Nauj. Earlier in tournament Henzzar lost 1-3 to Nauj. Henzzar fought his way back to 3-0 Nauj and reset the Grand Finals set. Nauj could not keep up and Henzzar remains champion!

Next Time...
Our next gathering is Lonestar Battleground II, where Texas' best and most passionate players will gather to claim supremacy. Keep an eye out for the best talent around!
