Sup Yall. Although i know people are probably tired of seeing Sonic Fox win this top 8 was a bit different than other top 8's.

Forever Elite: The 14 year old finally has broken out and made his first top 8 at a big event. Using mostly duelist Liu Kang a Variation that he said wasn't even good. Elite pulled out Flame Fist a few times but most of his victories where from the use of duelist. Finally taking everyone's advice and sticking with one character he showed the world how broken his character actually was. Pressure, setups, ORBS, MORE ORBS. Useless healing. And D2, After D2, After D2. Good job on your first top 8 dude.

Saltface NS: The Mileena/Jason/Doesn'tevenplaythegameanymore. Saltface has been MIA for a while now. Saying things like I'm done with this game. Or i am no longer playing Mileena. Or Jason Is top tier. He has finally found time to take a break from real life and take the long trip to Philly. Showing the world that not only is piercing mileena broken but so is...

Hey, Internet! This past weekend we've had a big regional tournament that is the closest thing to our one and only major. This time Ekaterinburg Fighting Arena took place at a new venue - namely Ural Game Area, a specialized eSports arena that is going to host various tournaments in both big and small eSports.

We've had players from all across Urals and a few visitors from Moscow attending the event. There were three main games - Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator, Street Fighter V and Mortal Kombat XL.
We've started on Saturday morning with GGXrdR and from the beginning of the pools we knew that the competition would be fierce since every pool had more than two people that were well known in Russia and were contenders for top-8. And after very intense and dramatic matches TND | Ashimriat from Novosibirsk came out victorious. Check out more below:

Whose Turn Is It? Games

Austin, TX 78704

1. Vibu (Shaolin KJ)
2. ATP (Boneshaper Shinnok)
3. TheDarkSilence (Pyro Tanya)

Leading up to the tournament ATP handily defeated both Izzzzymode & Dust in FT5 Mirrors. Next time you see Izzzzymode he'll have a paper bag over his head, and next time Dust plays in tournament he'll have a mop on his head...literally. ATP was riding the momentum and decided to play the tournament with his raw Boneshaper. However, a specter was lurking in the shadows. Once thought to be dead at the hands of ATP, Vibu clawed his way out of the Netherrealm to once again fight in Mortal Kombat.

Not to be exposed, ATP ran the gauntlet. He defeated myself 3-2, Dazengie 3-1 and in Winners Finals he defeated Zombie Vibu a resounding 3-0. Elsewhere, TheDarkSilence manhandled the Losers side to get another shot at gold. But where he has fallen short in the past, he once again crumbled to Zombie Vibu and only landed 3rd place.

Tekken Master: A Fighting Game Hero for the Middle East

The stage floor lit up with purple clouds and lightning. There were four screens, composed in the shape of a square and hanging over the entire stage showcasing the action below. The Mortal Kombat XL character select screen emanated out to the incoming crowd of the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

The Evolution Championship Series (Evo) was the biggest fighting game tournament in the world, and Mortal Kombat XL was one of its headliners. In the middle of it all was Sayed "Tekken Master" Hashem, who had ascended from the loser's bracket to the grand finals. He took his seat next to the best Mortal Kombat player in the world, Dominique "SonicFox" McLean, and did not flinch. His stoic expression never changed when the lights dimmed and his seat became center stage.

When asked about the grand finals, Hashem merely said, "I expected to reach the top three at Evo, and was confident enough to [achieve] it. My only...

It's hard to believe how the time flies, and yet here we are, almost 1.5 years after life was breathed into Mortal Kombat X.

The MKX Pro League, brought to the community by ESL, has blessed us with three seasons full of storylines that would leave our heads spinning. Reigns crumbled while new threats overshadowed the competition. Dreams were fulfilled while the fallen would lay scattered across a field riddled with the ashes of defeat.

And in the midst of all this chaos, only one champion would stand to defend his claim to the throne meant for the best player in all of the Mortal Kombat X competitive scene, as well as the three-time EVO champion (once for Injustice and twice for MKX)...

1. ATP (Gunslinger EB)
2. RyuuJin882 (Ronin Takeda)
3. Izzzzymode (Shaolin KJ)

Last week on the ATP: Wheel of Mortality show his tournament character was Gunslinger EB. The previous two runner ups were both absent, so there was plenty of opportunity for other players to place and get points. JerzeyReign returned after months of hibernation putting on a great show with all 3 variants of Mileena. Unfortunately, he was stopped short by Izzzzymode. To a similar tune JD also fought very well that night, but he too was eliminated by Izzzzymode. Check out more below:

So, a lot already know that kenshi's worst variation is balanced, and with good reason. I have to say this character is flat out incredibly fun and stylish to play. But he really does "suffer" from his design alone. There are so many flaws that I discovered in just the small amount of time I've been playing him that I see why this character had thread after thread begging for help. So guys I took it upon myself to give it one more try for our beloved kenshi community and made this. I'm not asking for buffs, although competitively he could use some tweaking as well, but I just wanted to point out the flaws within the toolset he was given. I hope it helps and it's not to late for him to stil get treatment ;). Check it out below:

Considering there was not much love for Defend the North @Awkward Sloth Suggested i made a thread showing the results. Although the turnout was not the largest there was still competition in the air. Although with some interesting picks from players we saw a somewhat diverse showing from the players at the event. Here is the top 8 below:
