If you missed the matches during tonight's Kombat Cup for week # 5, you missed a lot of great matches. Unlike some weeks where there are quite a few 3-0 matches... tonight, there were plenty of 3-2 or 2-3 matches followed by upsets. One of the match highlights that attest to this was FullAuto vs Illusions where FullAuto was down 2-0 and came back to win it, 2-3.

If tonight's matches say anything about what we will see Wednesday night

In addition, Daniel Pesina, who portrayed

For what it's worth, this bit of news indicates that the new Mortal Kombat movie is still in development. We knew James Wan (Furious 7, The Conjuring, etc) was going to be producing it, but the director was yet to be established. According to sources; one of them being IGN, Simon McQuoid will be taking that role.

You've got one month until one of, if not the biggest Northeast event comes to Philly. And this event sweeps in players from all over the country. @michaelangelo, WhiteBoi, @cR WoundCowboy, Slayer and Tyrant are just a few that will be heading to Philly and that's just the West Coast!

How about the East Coast; the defenders?! @YOMI REO has confirmed that he will be in attendance. @Dragon_FGC, @YOMI FOREVER KING and the guy who everyone should be aiming for... non other than @SonicFox5000 .

There is a "chance" that Injustice 2 will receive a demo prior to the games official release. Ed Boon was asked on twitter about a demo and he didn't shoot it down, so that's a good sign. As many of you that played the first Injustice know, there was a demo for Injustice: Gods Among Us that hit the networks about two weeks prior to the official

Kumite in Tennessee, happening January 6th - 8th, 2017 is approaching fast. The event will feature a very generous pot bonus of $10,000 to Mortal Kombat X courtesy of NetherRealm Studios/Warner Bros. @Vandy released their trailer just days ago and it gives you a taste of what the event will be like. This event has always been quite a delight for the NetherRealm community.

Will the King keep his throne in 2017? Will there be a chance for others to draw blood?

Since I've known about @michaelangelo from 2011 when he first made a name for himself during the PDP National Mortal Kombat 9 tournament, he's always been a top player in the NRS FGC. As well, through the years he's always been someone who is very friendly, competitive and does whatever he can to boost the scene... and he's always doing it with a smile on his face.

As we approach the 3 month marker dry-spell for Injustice 2 news... we know at the point the game is in heavy production and we're only going to get scraps. What I mean by scraps is feeding off of Ed Boon's twitter. When being active on his twitter account, he was asked about new characters and naturally all Ed could say is

I'm delighted to share with you a truly exceptional piece of work. Our own @Eddy Wang has put tremendous effort into preparing a unique analysis of a set between @SonicFox5000 and @Tweedy. Read the descriptions below and enjoy the video. Feel free to comment to share your gratitude towards Eddy, ask any questions, or to request a similar analysis for another FT3 set.

I'm excited to bring to you the first of what will be a repeating series of articles. As the title suggests, I will be bringing you 3-5 exhibition/tournament matches, from the past 2 weeks, that I believe should not be missed.

Also, I am not the most gifted in the area of graphic design and have limited time as it is. Therefore, if anyone fancies creating a fitting graphic to be used as a thumbnail for this series of articles please PM them to me.

First, this week's Kombat Cup final between @SonicFox5000 and Dragon.
An absolutely brilliant set exhibiting top level play, with Sonic exhibiting his Sektor vs Dragon's Kitana. A much more exciting match compared to the prepatch Alien mirrors we were used to from these two.
Second, another Kombat Cup match, but between @Tweedy and @YOMI RM JagoBlake. In a true demonstration of high level footsies,...

NEC (Northeast Championships XV) is approaching fast; Dec. 17-18 to be precise. NEC has always been regarded as of the very largest East Coast events (if not the largest) that is ran by @BigE . It's the time of the year where if you wanna see the vast majority of the competition coming together to dust off the hiatus and burn the tumbleweed... you want to make plans to either attend or make sure you
