In absence of Red Fight District this year, members of the Dutch Mortal Kombat community put their heads together and are proud to announce our very first MKX major: AFK XL. Over the past year we've had the pleasure to welcome many of you to our local AFK tournaments, but this time we're going all out with a larger venue, increased player cap, and of course a larger prize pool (more to be announced soon). Sign ups are now officially live, so hurry up and register at www.afk-cafe.nl

Please get in touch!
If you have any questions that haven't been answered by the website, don't hesitate to contact us via the website contact form, directly on TYM or our social media channels. Information about accomodation can be found on the website, but I am more than willing to help out a couple of players with a place to stay. Again, don't hesitate to ask!

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:

Proud to announce the return of Civil War to the fighting game community. We're expanding westward! Proud to be able to work with Jesse Baker to host the tournament in an actual arcade! Other partners will be announced soon! To that end, the tournament is definitely going to have a lot of old school focus as we're running plenty of tournaments on actual arcade hardware and streaming the finals. This will be a 3 day event. However, we will be beginning the tournament at 6pm on Friday and ending the tournament at 6pm on Sunday. Check out the full event schedule, below the game list:

Basically Ermac can jump over the opponent on knockdown in the corner and do his aerial teleport to blow up 90% of wake-up attempts in the game and get a full combo punish. The down side is if it is blocked, you're punished obviously for doing a full screen teleport attack. BUT in the corner his teleport makes Ermac "phase" through the opponent which puts your opponent in an awkward situation. Many attacks or retaliations will whiff, which will make you some what safe for the most part. What whiffs during this scenario is entirely character and match-up dependent.

Your opponent will most likely have to lab this to discover what consistently punishes Ermac when he does the teleport phase. Most players will probably get thrown off guard or fail to punish you properly the first time they see this. Check out the videos below:

Ooples Anime
1925 Rutland Dr. Austin, Tx 78758

1. ATP (Wrestler Jax, Mystic Ermac)
2. Blujay512 (Nimble Reptile, Shirai Ryu Takeda)
3. LoveIn60FPS (Nimble Reptile, CSZ)

Finally after four weeks of drought our weeklies returned! We had 3 newcomers as well as OGs Dazengie and, the Dark Lord himself, LoveIn60FPS. Round 1 started off strong when Dazengie put LoveIn60FPS on tilt, nearly coming back 3-0. The downplay was strong with Old Dazengie. Round 2 was predictable save for Rage's 3-1 upset over former decorated champ Henzzar!

And regarding comebacks, ATP nearly came back 3-0 against Blujay512 in Winners Finals. Both players threw fundamentals out the window but Blujay512 would come out on top after a heated scramble to the W. Heads flew on the Losers side until finally LoveIn60FPS and ATP met in Losers Finals. After being disgraced in an 0-3 loss The Dark Lord threatened to unleash the forever feared Alien next tournament.

Hey guys! Since EVO, Mustard and I have been working on a bunch of post tournament content consisting of all the footage we gathered from the event. This time round, those of you that met us at the event saw I was holding a camera that was an actual camera! Not just my crappy phone!

Our first video is about the players of EVO 2016, we caught up with some players to get their thoughts on the event, how they feel about the tournament/their game etc. Players include @SonicFox5000 and @Beyond Toxin!

It went up on the ESL UK Youtube Channel, so go check it out if you want!

More is coming, stay tuned! :)

Hey, internet! Unfortunately we had no stream from OPSS30, because I was out on vacation. But this time not only we had a stream but we did an English commentary. Well, for the most part anyways)
So, let me just say that this was the first OPSS victory for SelloVeN, our youngest player. And we hope it was the first of many more to come. SFV top-4 was pretty exciting as well, so even if you're not that much into Street Fighter go check it out.

Footage is available at our YouTube channel, timestamps are in the description:

I know that this conversation has been talked about time and time again. But I decided with the help of @TopTierHarley to creating a ranking system that we as a community can use to either help seed players or just just as bragging rights. Cause lets be serious here sometimes its nice to gloat a bit about being ranked higher than X person. Now please do not use this system as a reason to not go to events. Every event is special in its own way. Some community members and TO's even work hard to make sure that the event runs well.

The main reason for this thread is to give your opinion on the ranking system. Point out possible flaws such as missed tournaments. Cause i will be honest i don't know every event that happens. I am hoping to get input from different people of the community. But don't be a fuck please. We really need a better ranking system since SRK is not done well at all and they will probably not fix it. Mine will not be perfect but i feel it is more balanced. Check it out:

Hello ladies and gentlemen, My name to most of you is Mr Aquaman, to some it is some form of a reference to the glorious arch that bestows my upper lip. I am here today as a tournament organizer for The Common Wealth, or TCW. We at TCW took pride last year in being the only real tournament with a focus on you, the NRS scene. This scene has been my home for many years now and I started working on TCW with the full intent to give this scene the love and attention it truly deserves. From the bottom of my heart thank you to everyone that came to the first event and watched it live from home, you guys are the real mvp. Now we fast forward over a year.

TCW September 17-18 2016

The show isn't over - straight up. Many of us were expecting something to be announced/unveiled at EVO, but perhaps we had the wrong perception. Before EVO Boon mentioned an announcement in regards to EVO and following that was the $50K pot bonus that would go towards the EVO top 8.

Regardless, we THANK NRS/WB Games once again for the extremely generous tournament pot bonus. On top of that, Boon has stated recently on twitter that there is in fact, MKXL news coming soon. Kombat Pack 3? Mobile updates? One last balance patch?

We will speculate, but we'll also have to wait anxiously and see

This weekend, the world of Mortal Kombat converged on Las Vegas to determine who is indeed the real Top Dawg. Considered the Super Bowl of Fighting Game Tourneys, Evo is the World Championships. After an all day of pools on Saturday, the MKXL players had a short rest over night & were the first on the amazing stage set up at the Mandalay Bay Events Center....And the players did not disappoint. Kongrats to EVERY MK player who went & represented our community at Evo. 706 of you are probably disappointed, but TYM is proud of 707 of you. Check out the Results below:
