Big thanks to: Jesse Baker, NS | Gilgamesh, BxA | EMPEROR Eevee, TiZ, alxndr, BxA | Jackal, Steel, and anyone I am unfortunately forgetting at the moment.

Things went pretty well! Smash.gg worked well, and so I am excited to continue using the website for pre-registration and brackets throughout Spring Series 2016. The only hiccup was that some players who pre-registered did not show up, and so were put in the bracket on the off chance they would be late. They did not end up showing, and so the bracket had unintentional byes. This will be fixed with a more organized sign-in at the front desk. Thanks for your patience and understanding! Check out the results below:
York Street Battles has long been THE monthly event for Sydney's FGC. We've been lucky enough to hit 20+ entrants for MKX for most months since the games release, and this month was no exception! Once again we had Castiel fly down from Queensland to get his last chance to practice prior to next fortnight's major, Battle Arena Melbourne 8. We also had Ghost Police come all the way from Canberra (but if we're being honest, he's one of the Sydney crew by now).

Coming off the back of Wollongong's first major last month, Expand Gong, iFat|Gilbagz went into YSB #41 with a target on his back. Placing at this month's YSB was extra important, with seeding points for BAM8 on the line. With an early bracket loss to Wazminator, iFat|Gilbagz's chances were looking a little grim but he persevered! Climbing through losers bracket in top 8, all the way to GF where he stole the victory from Saggat83 with a clean 3-0, 3-1. Saggat83 for the last however many events has placed consistently in top 3, showing he's a force to be reckoned with, while I rejoined top 3 for a second month with my return to the lord of Woolay himself, Quan Chi. We had some absolutely incredible sets this weekend, so please please check them out. For any of you Cryomancer non-believers, I think you'll get a pleasant surprise if you sit back and enjoy @Gilbagz's matches. Catch the results after the break:

I was quick this time! Episode 9 of The Friendly Alliance is up on YouTube and available as an MP3! This episode is important for everyone (at least the first half an hour), as we discuss the significance of a potential MKX ESL Pro League in Australia. Please give it a listen and help us try to achieve this goal!

Episode details:
Welcome to the Episode 9 of The Friendly Alliance Podcast! The Friendly Alliance podcast is an MKX podcast co-hosted by Cabjoy and Gilbagz that is primarily designed for leveling up the Australian scene while highlighting some of our key players and their stories.

We're back this time with discussion of the recent social media push to support a potential Australian ESL MKX Pro League. We go through the progress that we've made as the Australian MKX scene (in terms of gaining the attention of members of ESL as well as notable MKX personalities such as Perfect Legend and Kitana Prime), as well as what we need to be doing to show how much we want this. We also touch on keeping an open mind when having your gameplay critiqued, how the three of us got involved with the competitive FGC, the beginnings of offline NRS scene in Sydney and have a brief discussion of sandbagging and hiding tech. Check it out below:
What's up TYM.

The title says it all. I'm back. Not only am I back but I'm gonna be grinding hard asf to get back to the top.

Lately I haven't been playing much due to the lack of motivation to play. Between soccer, school and work I just haven't had time to or the will to play.

Recently I had the urge to play a couple games with some people online. After a few games and playing around with different characters I became interested in JC. His playstyle fits how I want to play and now I've gotten my passion back to become top dog.

I'm going to be streaming everyday, grinding and learning MUs so feel free to message me so we can get games in.

I'm willing to play games with ANYONE. I need all the MU experience I can get.

Oh ya and @SonicFox5000 I'm coming for you at evo. Im undefeated vs you in tournament and I PROMISE you that you'll be forever shutout in the Curbo vs Sonicfox MU ;)

Hit me up on xbone: CURBOLICOUS or ps4: LICOUSCURB.

4 years ago, i reached every single guy i could find that once played MK9 (a year before) in the VSA (Virtual Sports Association) events before they pull the plug on every game they were running and disappear from the grid, and started a tournament of MK9 with only 8 guys.

I remember of already being a TYM member back then, @STORMS saw our article and noticing we're from Africa, Angola, he promoted our stuff in the front page, from there on, it gave me confidence to keep interacting with TYM and managed to make a lot of friends until now, not only in my country, but here on TYM i have my unshakable bonds as well.

Today it marks 4 years since that day, our community has grown big, and continues to get bigger every year, more people from previous MK games, and now even SF players, Tekken Players and so on come to play with MK Titans in any event, in any fighting game, not only we're the most notable MK Tournament community, but also the most diverse in any fighting game in Angola/Luanda, this its part of my life, and thanks to TYM we're what we are today.
We are Back again this year! After great success being Mortal Kombat X's first major we are doing it all again with that same Pacific Northwest taste you've grown to love. Here's the info at the present moment, will be updated as we go along.
