It's been a long time since I've been around these parts, but I wanted to make sure everyone that is interested in GGA's long-standing event knew about it. This will be bigger and better than any MK event GGA has ever run, needing 2 days to contain all the tournaments, guest appearances, photo ops and side events we want to host! The evolution of Shang Tsung's Fight Night has lead us to...​
The speculation has come to an end, and the result is a pleasant surprise for the MKXL community!

Just moments ago, NRS co-creator Ed Boon announced that there will in fact be a balance patch coming not just to the console versions of MKXL, but also to the PC version, ported by QLOC! He also states that they intend to have the patch coincide with MKXL's arrival to PC, which means that more than likely, the patch will land on or around the release date for the PC version.

Are you ready for new tech, updated match-up knowledge, and best of all, more tournaments?! I know we are!

It's 3 AM and I just returned home from my very first tournament. This was the Dreamolition Derby 3 tournament here in Munich, Germany, which saw 16 entrants for MKXL from various countries from Europe. We had players from France, Netherlands, Austria (the awesome Vienna scene,) and of course players from here representing Germany.

The matches were hype and the crowd got hype cheering for the players from their scenes. There were some really intense and close matches, and it all ended with SnK HappyPow taking it all with his very swaggy Nimble Reptile! The top 8 results are: (Country | Name)

1-) FRA | SnK @HappyPow (Nimble Reptile, Ancestral Kung Jin)
2-) AUT | VDV @st9rm (Honest Shirai Ryu Takeda, Hollywood Cassie Cage)
3-) FRA | Yuzu @ganondeurf (Thunder God Raiden)
4-) AUT | VDV @Udun (Impostor Shinnok, DF Goro)
5-) GER | @Braindead (SG Kotal Kahn, Bone Shaper Shinnok) <--- That's me (Yes I just tagged myself)
5-) AUT | VDV @TheLeoholic (Crystalline Tremor)
7-) GER | @Smascer (Tempest Kung Lao, Ronin Takeda)
7-) AUT | VDV Seraphan (Not sure, someone fill me in please)

The Enchanced Online BETA for PC MKXL is now done, and there is now a release date for Kombat Pack 2 for PC. Check out the info from the listing for KP2 on Steam:

Mortal Kombat XL for PC will be available for purchase Oct. 4, 2016. Originally developed by NetherRealm Studios, Mortal Kombat XL is adapted for PC by Qloc. Additionally on that day, current owners of Mortal Kombat X on PC will be able to download the latest patch for free, giving players access to all of the latest balance updates as well as the enhanced online experience, that was available in the recent beta test for the game.

Mortal Kombat XL offers the ultimate Mortal Kombat X experience that includes the main game and all content featured in upcoming Kombat Pack 2:

• Brand new playable characters the Xenomorph from Alien, Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre horror film series, Triborg and Bo’Rai Cho
• Apocalypse Skin Pack
• Previously released content including playable Goro, Brazil Skin Pack, Kold War Skin Pack and Kold War Scorpion Skin

Also included with Mortal Kombat XL are previously released downloadable content from the original Kombat Pack:
• Playable characters Predator, Jason Voorhees, Tremor and Tanya, with each accompanied by three themed skins
• Samurai Skin Pack
The results are in! After a hard fought series of battles PG Scar successfully repeats as champion at Absolute Battle!

1. PG Scar (Smoke Demo Sonya)
2. VGP Ominous (Jax, Shaolin KJ)
3. VGP KoreyTheDragon (Smoke, Grandmaster Sub, Quan Chi)
4. GnarlyGatoAlex (War God KK)
5. Mutiny Starcharger (Kitana)
5. SnK Royale (Cutthroat/Cybernetic Kano, Boneshaper Shinnok)
7. StDx 2eZ (Ermac)
7. Coosco (CO Sonya)

Coosco suffered a heartbreaking loss after a wire to wire set with Starchager. Coosco did the unthinkable and didn't jump once in five games. But he choked while veteran Starcharger maintained composure...until his EX Popoff.

StDx 2eZ was the only non Texan in top 8. He repped Florida well but got MIXED outta his mind by Royale's Cutthtoat.

The entire crowd was behind home town boy VGP Ominous in Winners Finals as he nearly defeated Scar with an unorthodox counterpick to Demo Sonya. But not only did Scar defeat Ominous in Winners Finals, but he did so in Grand Finals as well. Congratulations to Scar for the W!

For more intense moments stay tuned for the youtube archives.

This past weekend (26th-28th August 2016) brought us OzHadou Nationals 14, the latest iteration of Australia's premiere fighting tournament. This year saw the birth of a new beast, with OHN14 taking place in a new venue with our highest number of registered players to date!

We saw the likes of new faces and old come together to fight for the title of OHN14 MKX champion, including OHN13's champion Arnold Desu and top 8 contenders from Melbourne's BAM8 earlier in the year; NVO Gilbagz, Castiel, Wazminator and NVO Cabjoy. We saw tier whoring, we saw sledging and we saw some of the most clutch sets to come out of the Aussie NRS scene to date.

Catch the results after the break.
