We recently learned of the exciting news that eSports team EchoFox had signed up our very own SonicFox and Scar. YahooEsports have conducted some very interesting interviews with both players, revealing details about their contracts and futures in the FGC. This is quite an exciting time for the FGC, and if you're interested in the competitive fighting game community and curious about how these Esports teams work, then give these interviews a watch.

How do you stop this momentum, really? I would think that anyone caught in SonicFox's path this week would be facing defeat after his (along with Scar's) exciting announcement of joining Echo Fox. Last week, Sonic simply didn't get the Kombat Cup in time, however, for week 10 he did not make the same mistake. This week, he strolled into the top 8 and he took the Grand Finals over GTG Semiij's Mileena w/ Tanya.

Along this week's top 8 were many regulars including Circa Destroyer, Dragon, that keep making the top 8 but are no doubt

As if StreameMe hadn't done enough for us, by providing us with exceptional tournaments in the form of the Kombat Kup and Konquest tournaments, they have now announced that they will be hosting an Injustice: Gods Among Us Invitational on the 5th of February.

This is a great chance for those who miss the hype from top level Injustice tournaments and for those who missed out to catch up before the release of Injustice 2.

SonicFox had promised exciting news would follow his departure from Critical Reaction, and this news has now come to light. The professional eSports organisation Echo Fox have fittingly signed up SonicFox along with other fighting game legends such as Justin Wong, Tokido and Momochi.

Kombat Houston's Scar has made the announcement that he has left from the sponsorship of PandaGlobal. While it is unclear why he made this decision, he did state that he made the decision on his own to leave. He also stated via twitter that it had nothing to do with his illness.

Sponsored or not, Scar is and will continue to be a dominate force for the NetherRealm scene. We wish him

Mark Julio (MarkMan23) just announced on his Facebook page that the Evolution 2017 Announcement Show will be on January 24th; about 4 weeks away on a Tuesday. On this night, we will learn more about what all EVO 2017 will have in-store for the new year competitors as well as what we're always eager to know most... which games will be in the official line-up.

You may remember just days ago

TheScoreEsports had put together their top 10 "Most Memorable FGC Moments of 2016" at the summit of the New Year and low and behold, the EVO 2016 Mortal Kombat X Grand Finals' moment where Tekken Master made SonicFox take off his hat was one of the moments captured. As many know, it is extremely rare to see SonicFox without his furry blue hat whenever competing. The fact that he took it off when Tekken Master was shaking things up, had the crowd and the commentary going wild.

At this point, you either love or hate the Fox for his success in MKX. He has proved himself to be

@Vandy has been nice enough to give us the pools for KIT very early in the week. Giving everyone plenty of time to prepare. From what I can tell these pools are all stacked and anyone can make it out. This event is looking to be very good for the viewers and for the players.

Well everyone, it's that time again. The night where we say goodbye to the year we just had and hopefully start off on better footing for the coming year. It's been a long year for a lot of us. Some are just happy that it's over, seeing this year as a complete flop. And while yes there has been a fair share of bad in 2016 from terrible catastrophes across the globe to the deaths of beloved actors/actresses/personalities, we can't let that get in the way of the good this year has brought. So I wanted to take this time, and this thread space, for everyone to reflect on the year and remember that it wasn't all bad. Seeing as how I'm the one making this thread, I'll go first.

What 2016 Did For Me
I will admit I've gone through some pretty terrible things this year but one of the single best things that could have happened to me happened this year. March

For those of you who may be unaware, NetherRealm competitor PG Scar has been hospitalized since Christmas Eve due to his condition w/ a rare illness called "Rhabdomyolysis". This is a very serious syndrome that is caused from damaged/injured muscles where the fibers of the muscle make its way into the bloodstream. In turn, it can also result in kidney failure, which is not good at all.

The good news is that Scar was wise enough to get medical attention fast... and he needed it. With Scar being hospitalized

A neighbor in the Mortal Kombat community, tabmok99 of MKO/MortalKombatWarehouse recorded his niece doing some Mortal Kombat impressions. There's something about a little girl doing these impressions that make it absolutely badass. Check it out.

As the finals for Kombat Cup Week # 9 has wrapped up last night, we're announcing a new King! Every single week for 9 weeks now, players have been competing and giving it their all on Sunday and Wednesday every week. There are prizes, incentives, bragging rights and at the end of the road is a trip to EVO. See the spoiler below if you wish to cut to the chase!

Everyone who is appalled by the latest twitter poll by MrWiz (link here) should check out this rant video by @Mitsuownes as I believe he hits the nail on the head. Keep in mind, I believe the anger should not be going towards the EVO staff for polling this question, rather to us. You'll know very well enough on "why" when viewing this video.

Well, I'll tell you what, I prefer Boon's twitter polls far more than this one. @MrWizard recently made a twitter poll asking the community, "if we had to choose", would we rather have Mortal Kombat X or Injustice 2 at EVO 2017? It is a terrible question to ask, but hey... yeah, I have no other words to describe my feelings on this.

Regardless, please use this link to go vote on Twitter for the game you'd rather see at EVO 2017.

A runback request of the NetherRealm community is currently at 85.7% for "Yes", I want to see this set.

Just days ago @Hollywood DMS made a thread about the well-known @Tom Brady calling out the current and long-running BEST Mortal Kombat player in the World, @SonicFox5000 to battle it out in not Mortal Kombat X, but Mortal Kombat 9. Although, I have not found any proof of Tom calling out SonicFox, the poll results are speaking for themselves. Over 140 voters want to see the two meet in an exhibition match at Kumite in Tennessee. Kumite in Tennessee (KIT) is less than two weeks away and has a lot to offer for the NetherRealm Community.

As @ESLMortalKombat's twitter stated just days ago, if you're up for a challenge, you should definitely sign up. Both North American and Europe have ESL Mortal Kombat tournaments soon to go underway.

While the US has two event days coming up, Europe has many that include Spain in the mix. It will definitely be great to see what the competition looks like as

A new Injustice 2 gameplay walkthrough of some of Supergirl's basic moves, just dropped from IGN. Similar to the Kombat Class videos that were show throughout the ESL events, this video sounds to be narrated by none other than our very own NetherRealm Community Specialist, @tylerlansdown who explains the moves being performed and the different strategies they can be used for . Have a look - they know, we know, you've been thirsty.
