As previously reported by my esteemed colleague @HellblazerHawkman here (https://testyourmight.com/threads/i...ntal-championship-officially-announced.67371/), an exciting new online competition is currently being held across the globe, with the prize being a spot for the Injustice Pro Series finale!

The Aussies had their turn a couple of weeks ago, but over the weekend both the Middle East and Eastern Europe championships were staged, featuring some of the most prominent players from those scenes. In particular, the Middle East tournament saw TekkenMaster and SharkTeeth (as well as the unaffiliated TekkenLegend), both of whom have made significant waves in the U.S Tournament scene, while the Eastern European event featured names like Nivek, K-Top and Dubasik among others!

No spoilers to be found here ladies and gents (who am I kidding, 95% gents), check out the Eastern European...

SCR is here and SCR is now gone (for the NRS scene). With a small batch of players going into pools, this ended up being one of the most stacked majors in Injustice 2 history, with every pool being a death pool filled with the toppest of the top. In the end, only one person could emerge victorious, and that person is..... Continue...

When you are looking for retro Mortal Kombat stuff, who better to turn to than tabmok99? This latest video is about as retro as you can get, it's a panel from Retro World Expo of some of the original Mortal Kombat actors discussing MK history and talking about some cool stuff you probably didn't know about. The footage was from Daniel Pesina himself, so thanks to him for allowing us nerds not invited to the Expo to see it. Continue...

Blue Beetle For People In A Hurry: Legendary Edition

Intro/Gameplan:

Blue Beetle is a character that allows immense creative freedom because of how much of a well rounded jack of all trades character he is in this game. He has very strong zoning with superb frame data alongside good normals up close, solid frame traps with float and high mobility as a result of float as well. He is incredibly safe due to shield bash, sweep, back 1 and a safe footsie tool help to compliment his footsie and chip game. He has superb jump normals in jump 1 and jump 3 that are great for air to airs, plus frames and conversions. His down 2 also heavily compliments his anti-air game and with trait he has excellent footsies, air game and even better anti-airs.

Let me tell you all a story. In 2006, a young Irish boy woke up on Christmas morning extra excited. He could barely contain himself because he knew that under the tree was waiting the ultimate denouement to his beloved Mortal Kombat, a game containing all the previous characters that promised to conclusively wrap up the expanding story and deepening mythology, setting up a whole new generation of Mortal Kombat. He had religiously avoided spoilers, knowing only the basic premise of the game and the roster and his expectations were sky high. He sat in front of the tree for two hours reading, waiting for the rest of the family to wake up so he could finally open it. The game's opening video and select screen were (and remain) absolutely hype. The rest of the game sucked and that boy learned something valuable that day, shaping him into a jaded, soulless cynic who believes hope, optimism and love is for suckers.... Continue......

So it looks like there might be an Intercontinental Injustice 2 tourney coming up for players outside of the NA/EU scene, providing a venue for some of the larger portions of the I2 scene to actually earn a shot at an IPS seat. Normally, this would be where I'd post something, like a snip of the tweet from Tekken Master with an early link on Smash.gg. However, Imgur is down, so here is a picture of Raiden getting beat up for a temporary thumbnail. Continue...
