Recently CW Seed released a series of videos created by Machinima. I feel like this show is not getting enough attention. It follows the events following up the ESL Finals. It features well known players such as @HoneyBee @cR Biohazard @Pig Of The Hut @Perfect Legend @SonicFox5000. To start off this show is really good. It gives you insight to the players lives outside the game. You learn a bit about their personal lives including dating, Relationships with their families and with each other. You get to see the passion and dedication each of these players have for Mortal Kombat X and the things they are willing to do to get into the ESL Finals. The show has its funny moments and

EGP Toasty Tuesdays 3
With SoCal locals finally returning after the Holiday Season, EGP Weeklies returned at the KO Gaming Lounge in Rowland Heights. Many of SoCal's best attended including Nubcakes, Han Rashid, Awesomo, Airvidal, Luminary Cheeko, and more.

Highlights​
    • TonyJaabreaker, a really good Kenshi, traveled 6 hours just to attend the tournament. He also had some of the best matches of the week.​
    • Awesomo pulls out a character that ISN'T Johnny, and does well with them!​
    • The infamous SF player Bushinstyle returns to MKX competitive play.​
    • Nubcakes shows that he's not below counterpicking, even though he mains Shinnok.​
    • I only commentated a couple matches, so 80% of the stream should be safe to listen to.​

I am very proud to say that we now have a plethora of new variation banners to use, including various tournament-related variation (mood) banners, banners I would consider "other" banners as well as very delayed Injustice variation banners.

Here's a tease at a few of my favorite ones added:

I've been getting a lot of people asking me about what I think of the possible upcoming Tanya changes, so I made a video about it. If all of these nerfs do happen, I will still main Tanya. She is by far my best character no matter how much they nerf her. I'll probably secondary Kitana though, I've been liking her a lot lately. Even with these changes though I still think Tanya will be a pretty solid character. Hopefully you guys enjoy. Check it out below, and thanks for watching! :)

The UMK3 Ermac combo video now has a brother! Since I made the Ermac combo video , came the idea of doing one similar for Human Smoke, the two most powerful Male Ninjas both which can share a good variety of combos. The other video was a great effort, I ask to be helped by old known players for better results. Ninjagrinder, reviewed the project from time to time, and contributed with some of his ideas; and Ded gave to me some crazy combos he had previously recorded and recorder another one at the moment. So the video was easier and contains the damage text included by request of some players ,unlike the Ermac video. Take in accout that the damage of the Air Throws doesn't show in the Damage Counter, but is equal to 7% of damage (when Damage Protection is activated -which happens in most cases). Enjoy!

NetherRealm's new netcode, which was teased as "GGPO" (Good Game, Peace Out) is taking players by surprise in my opinion. The netcode for NetherRealm Studios' games has been a struggle for years and therefore, their games died out due to poor online. However, the new netcode that is only currently available to those players who have received the Beta codes is receiving about 99% positive feedback.

Regarding the netcode, I looked up a few top players' twitter accounts to see what they've had to say. Judging by their comments and the increased forum discussion here on TYM regarding the netcode, I believe

The ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League Finals may have concluded, but the story is far from over. Throughout the season, a documentary crew from Machinima with the full cooperation of Warner Bros. followed five of the Pro League competitors as they battled their way through to the Finals to get the story from the other side of the screen and dive into the personal stories behind these players.

The resulting series, “Chasing the Cup” began airing on January 28 via the CW’s digital platform, CW Seed, and the series finale will broadcast on-air on February 15 on The CW from 8:00 to 9:00 PM Eastern. This marks the first time in history that a show dedicated to esports will air in primetime on network television, and we could not be prouder of that accomplishment.
