Final Round 20 has concluded and it was undoubtedly the most exciting top 8 of recent memory. If this was to be the last MKX major before Injustice 2 releases, we couldn't have asked for a better send off. Demons were beaten, forgotten variations emerged, it was truly a spectacle.

Congratulations to all of top 8. If you weren't able to watch the event live, you can catch the top 8 here.

Results are in the spoiler below, and you may be in for a surprise!

After many impressive matches that ran down to the wire, the top 8 for Final Round 20 has been set.
We have some very familiar faces claiming their usual spots in top 8, but also some competitors who will be new to the big stage
This weekend, many of MKX's best players have gathered in Atlanta to compete at Final Round 20.

As a reminder, NRS and WB have also contributed a $5,000 pot bonus for the competitors.
Here's the stream schedule for today:
GameReactor have posted a new article containing interviews with Ed Boon and Derek Kirtzic. In the interviews they discuss NRS' latest innovation, the Gear system.
IBA’s Computer Science Society hosted a Mortal Kombat XL tournament during ProBattle’17. The competition took place on the 4th of March where numerous MKXL players hailing from Karachi participated, as well as 2 players from Lahore. PVGF’s founder Tariq Rathore (also known as MKRayden) took the tournament by storm and after being undefeated in all of his rounds, bagged the 1st position. Not only him but PVGF’s Co-founder Khalid Malik (also known as Krausar) also played extremely well throughout the tournament, coming in 3rd place. The tournament had a lot of great players, from Hassan Ur Rehman’s comebacks as Sub-Zero to Rameez Arif’s juggling as Kitana but alas, their skills were not enough to match the might of PVGF’s players.

The tournament's results were even featured in several newspapers!
Fresh off the heels of the Shattered Alliances Part 2 trailer, we have received some more news regarding the Watch Tower stream that NRS will be hosting next week.

It had previously been announced that we would be receiving character breakdowns for two characters next week. And the official Netherrealm Studios Instagram account has just shed more light on this situation. It appears that we will be getting character breakdowns for Cheetah and Swamp Thing:
As anticipated, the Shattered Alliances part 2 trailer has been posted online today.
In the new trailer we see some familiar faces and some new ones battling against each other.
Enjoy the video and keep an eye out for some subtle reveals.
UPDATE: The stream has concluded. Archives will be ready to view tomorrow. To see your week four winner, click the spoiler.

If you've never heard of SonicFox, then you know nothing of the NetherRealm Studios' community (Mortal Kombat & Injustice), but clearly, we all know him very well. He's been the most dominant and consistently dominant player in our scene... and he's only now turning 19 years old!

Injustice 2 awaits right around the corner and the Fox is ready. But today, we just need to wish him, @SonicFox5000 , a very Happy Birthday! Check out the video Sonic's friends collaborated on below.
We are extremely thrilled to report that @Kitana Prime and @hayatei have been signed by Panda Global for the NRS side of things!
