We're coming closer and closer to Mortal Kombat 11 release date and Injustice 2 gets less and less players talking or playing it. Is Injustice 2 condemned to die a fast death? No as long as there are people who like it it can survive, which is Why @KHTC Takgillo decided to create a league for it: THE UNJUST LEAGUE.

The Unjust League is an Injustice 2 tournament based on an 8 week tournament league. The top 4 at the end of the 8 tournament period will each receive an invitation to enter the final week on April 21st 2019. The qualifying tournaments will happen every Sunday at 5PM EST with a $30 prize for the winner of each tournament. The top 8 each week will receive points towards the final. Continue...

Shao Kahn quickly recovered from his defeat at the hands of Liu Kang and, although enraged at his lost opportunity to finally conquer Earthrealm and his personal defeat at the hands of the Shaolin, this rage subsided when Shang Tsung informed him of his grand plan. As cunning a schemer as he was talented a sorcerer, Tsung had always known that it was at least conceivable that Goro would fail to maintain his dominance and had conceived of the Outworld tournament as his first alternative. It was not, however, his last hope.

The sorcerer had conceived a plan he was convinced could not fail. Shang Tsung proposed the resurrection of Queen Sindel, not in Outworld, but in Earthrealm. Once his Queen and wife was returned to life, Shao Kahn would then be able to reclaim her in person and thus cross the borders between realms, merging Earthrealm and Outworld and bypassing the restrictions of Mortal Kombat. This was an ingenious plot, one of which Shao Kahn thoroughly approved. Impressed by... Continue......

In this TYM Podcast I dive into @Shock 's wealth of knowledge asking about old-school players I've either just heard their name as being really good at UMK3 or players that helped build up the scene from many years ago.

In this episode, you will hear mention of @colt (Paulo), Eddie, Julian, LI Joe, Marvirrasta and more.

Killer Xinok, one of the best players in the South American NRS scene, has some high-level MK11 matches uploaded on his Youtube channel featuring some of the other players from the region. On his side of things, he has his own commentary and insights as to what's going on. BUT, for those of us who don't speak Portuguese, Xinok has let known English speaker PND Ketchup do a breakdown of these matches on the Condiment Bros' channel. Continue...

In this TYM Podcast episode, for the first time, possibly ever, you learn exactly how far back players like Shock AND Tom Brady go when it comes to the FGC. For example: Back in 2005 when there was a big (to us it was big) online competitive scene for Mortal Kombat Deception, there was also an offline competitive scene... which few of the online players knew existed. We were basically two different worlds; online and offline.

With Shock's wealth of knowledge, he tells stories from back in the 90's and early 00's. I speak of going to my first offline event (East Cast Throwdown 2), etc. It was a different world back then where offline events for Mortal Kombat meant you had a handful of players, literally. It wasn't until Mortal Kombat 9 until our offline scene really blossomed. Have a listen and enjoy.

The first episode of "The Science of Mortal Kombat" is here! To start things off, they are taking a look at Sub-Zero and seeing whether or not you could shatter a frozen human head just by punching it. I'm fairly confident that they don't use a real human head though, so take this with a grain of salt. Continue...

Hello everyone,

I recently recorded a solo podcast of just myself going through the AMA (ask me anything) thread I made earlier this week. I had fun with this as I answered all of the questions live... meaning, I avoided the thread until I had time to record. I hope you enjoy.

Shao Kahn was not in the habit of rewarding failure. Dragged before the Emperor to account for his failure to ensure Outworld’s Victory, Shang Tsung begged for his life and presented a new plan: he pointed out to his Emperor that the implications of a Mortal Kombat tournament cannot be ignored if an invitation is accepted, even should the tournament be waged outside of the usual cycle. Furthermore, were the forces of Outworld to triumph over Earthrealm and establish a new precedent of tournaments, they could ensure that the Earthrealm forces were decimated and the line of the Great Kung Lao ended. Most importantly, however, this new tournament would buy time: time that Shang Tsung needed to bring about his ultimate plan for domination of Earthrealm.

It is unknown whether or not this tournament would have overridden the tournament on Shang Tsung’s island or circumvented the rules of the Elder Gods, but the Emperor agreed with the panicked suggestions of Shang Tsung. Moreover, he... Continue......

And here's all the details for those of you who couldn't catch it. Continue...

A lot of interesting things here. The first one is the info itself, since McFarlane Toys is a well recognized company regarding action figures. The second one is the fact Todd McFarlane hinted about Spawn being in Mortal Kombat 11 as a guest. Coincidence?

IT'S ME AGAIN GUYS

This is a thread I've been wanting to make for awhile and seeing how MK11 is just on the horizon, there will be a lot of people on that grind and wanting to become a better player. There are a plethora of ways to do this but there are also a lot of ways you probably shouldn't do it so without further ado, here's the thread.


Primer For Improving
I get asked a decent amount, how do I 'git gud'? The answer to this question is one that I personally have been searching for as long as I can remember and to make it short, this question has no straight answer. If you want to improve as a player it requires a ton of time a dedication. The following are a few bullet points to work on that I will go into in further detail as the thread goes.
  • Reviewing footage
  • Asking questions
  • Using Practice Mode effectively
  • Staying objective
  • PLAY THE...

After winning his 6th Superbowl, New England Patriots' Quarterback Tom Brady is retiring from football to get into competitive Mortal Kombat. To kick things off, he's creating a gui-hold on. I'm being told this is actually Tom Brady, MK9 veteran and author of the legendary MK9 Living Guide, considered by many to have been the number 1 resource for a newbie looking to learn Mortal Kombat 9's ins and outs.
