Test Your Might

Home of competitive Mortal Kombat & Injustice

If, like me, you were a wee child during the 90s, you probably didn't know about the MK comics Malibu put out to get in on the Mortal Kombat hype train that was moving strong during that time. If you wanted to see the written world before the stellar MKX prequel comic, tabmok99 has got you covered. Continue...
The timeline for this post has been composed to reflect an NRS-style 2-year cycle. For other developers, just expand it out a couple more years ;)

  • Community: Man I'm hype, this game is going to be amazing. They're going to fix everything that was wrong with the last game. The netcode will be flawless and it will have all my favorite DLC. I love this company.

Day before release:

  • Community: So excited to get my hands on this game! Can't wait, gonna grind it out, I want to be top in this game. I really hope they don't patch the game, maybe for like a year or something like that, just let it rock and give it time to grow.

Release Day:
  • Group A: Man this game is so balanced and it feels so great. They really did a great job, this is hype and tournaments will be dope.
  • Group B: Character #23 is broken.. How...
Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, the Netherkast is back for another Episode!

The boys are still working their way through Q & A's, so tune in to hear about casting and producing a prospective MK Movie or TV Series, why people outraged over the Injustice 2 Legendary Edition lack basic pattern recognition skills and Continue......
"Why would I do that? Semiij and Rewind already have this on lock!" While that may be true, that doesn't mean you can't win something. Specifically the $200 prize that goes to the first place winner every week. If you don't think you have what it takes to hit first, you only need to make fourth to win $50. That's $50 for just playing Injustice 2. If that's more up your alley, you still have time to register for Week 10, it's still open for another 2 and a half hours. Just go here to Gauntlet.gg or here to Smash.gg if you want in. Continue...
I think it's fair to say that the TMNT have caused a fair deal of consternation in the competitive community since their release and none of the Turtles seems to cause as much salt as Mikey. Anyone who watched Winter Brawl will remember how SonicFox tore through the whole field from Pools to Finals using Michaelangelo, taking down highly regarded players like Scar's Black Manta and Theo's Supergirl. Continue......
The Clash is back with a top notch line up this week! Packed full of exhibition bouts, it's guaranteed way to see some top notch Injustice 2 action!

Our main events are Rewind v Grr and Starcharge v Armedcalf, but shout out to one of the more exciting undercards this side of UFC NYE shows, featuring Crusty v Revetleafing, Zed v Gutta Vis and Izzzymode v Scarsunseen!

Presented by Mr Aquaman and ATP, the action all kicks off at 7pm EST Friday night, so be there or be square!

As always, check back to TYM every day for the latest on all the happenings in the NRS scene, including Injustice 2 and the Mortal Kombat series! Continue......
Welcome to a new retrospective series we are trying out here at TYM! The idea is we go through some of the greatest moments in the NRS scene's history and we end by taking a vote on the greatest match in a given game's life; think one of those sports countdowns you'd see for the UFC or NFL. So to kick things off, we are going to start with MK9 and a legendary match in 2012the Jax FT5 mirror between Tyrant and CD Jr right before MLG Anaheim. Continue...
UPDATE: Some more information about the Legendary Edition has come out. On top of a new Bruce Wayne Batman Premiere Skin, we will also see a raised Level Cap (from 20 to 30) and new gear added into the game. This new content will be available for everyone, not just Legendary Edition players.

Keeping with video game tradition, Injustice 2 has a "Legendary Edition" coming, and it's coming soon. The Injustice 2 Twitter page had some news for people holding out on grabbing the latest game from Netherrealm studios and possibly something for the people currently playing. Continue...
Now that Winter Brawl has ended, players are headed back to the lab to prepare for Final Round. One such individual is Noble Raptor (disclaimer, I don't know if he's going to Final Round, I just needed the segue) who is back with another brief video showing off an option select you can do with the TMNT on a blocked divekick.

FINAL ROUND LLC proudly presents: FINAL ROUND 2018

March 16-18, 2018
Georgia International Convention Center
2000 Convention Center Concourse, Atlanta 30337

Hello everyone, this is Larry. We can't wait to host you guys/girls again! This will mark our second year at the convention center. Of course I personally would like to thank the players of the FGC, vendors, and the sponsors that have supported FINAL ROUND throughout the years because without you guys there wouldn't be any FINAL ROUND or scene!

First off with the positive feedback from attendees about the venue size last year we are back at the convention center again. With a 37,500 sqft exhibit hall to make sure every game event at FR2018 is in one room and not spread out like the dragon balls in different rooms! This will make it easier for those that like to compete in multiple games to be in the same room as the rest of the games! All of our online registration will be handled through smash.gg from the...

For the second release in a row, Netherrealm's latest game wins one of the biggest accolades in the industry, with Injustice 2 crowned Best Fighting Game at the D.I.C.E Awards!

Repeating the huge success, critical and commercial, of Mortal Kombat X, Injustice 2 blew away many people upon it's arrival with the best NRS storyline yet, amazing graphics and seemingly endless content, on top of the sweet Injustice gameplay. Really, with the exception of the fact that Superman's F23 should have more range and be plus on block, it's an absolutely extraordinary game. Continue......
Who saw that coming? Newcomer and relative no-name Echo Fox Sonic Fox has won Winter Brawl 2018 in the biggest upset in NRS history. *If you are new to the scene and are reading this, please note that this was not actually an upset* The rest of this Top 8 was also great, with the players giving us some indication as to who the big names will be in the 2018 season. Continue...
WOOT! The tourney season drought is over, Winter Brawl 2018 is here! Despite some technical issues while running the event, Injustice 2's Top 16 finally got rolling and things were as hype as ever: we had the TMNT, we had upsets, we had the Emperor of Outworld himself on mic, we had some new faces into the Top 8 which you can see right below. Continue...
It's Friday! And we all know what that means: time for The Clash! We've got some familiar faces, some War of the Gods regulars and, most importantly, we've got Randy "Macho Man" Savage on mic with Hank Rutherford Hill (if he can get time off with Strickland). Continue...
While it may come as no surprise to many of you that Noble Semiij won Week 9 of War of the Gods, that doesn't mean there weren't a lot of surprises in this week's Top 8. In one of his best showings this season, bc Honeybee had some INSANE matches this week, leading to a shake-up in the current standings and getting us the run-back from last year's EVO. Continue...
Hey guys, just letting you know that War of the Gods will be streaming their top 8 for the week very soon! Be sure to catch their stream tonight at 8pm EST at the following link: https://www.stream.me/War

This week is sure to be interesting, as we are entering our second top 8 with War of the Gods since the recent balance patch. It does not appear as though the Catwoman changes have slowed Semiij's momentum at all as he is once again in winners! Click to Read More......
Yeahhhh buddy, you read that right. With 6 months until EVO 2018, registration has finally opened. What that means is you have 6 months to get in shape and 6 months to build up a plan to dethrone the current EVO Champion ALG Dragon. Continue...
Michelangelo. The orange TMNT. The Nunchuck wielding TMNT. And, in Injustice 2, the lone skateboarding TMNT. And with that skateboard comes the ability to blow up projectiles for a full combo. Noble Raptor takes us through some of the things you can do by unleashing your inner Tony Hawk. Continue...
This month's event is a bit different, the most important change is that the tournament sign up will no longer be open to the general public and I will personally invite players to the bracket myself. Second change is that players from different regions will be featured and if anyone is interested in joining the event, simply join my discord channel and ask to be considered for a spot. Continue...
