As some of you may know, our petition has been circulating Twitter and Mortal Kombat fan sites. Our petition is not for a character, or some other type of inclusion into MKX, but for this book to be created. I have reached out to Shawn Kittlesen, who has since tweeted about his interest in this project. We have reached 3000, but I'd like to get this more exposure.

What this book is, or will be is a hardcover encyclopedia type book. Think the Marvel and DC Encyclopedias. It would go in depth about every character in the Mortal Kombat universe, their iterations, history, changes, etc. It would also cover the places/stages/memorable moments within the timeline. I have included in the petition that this book should indeed cover both time lines, along with background on different races, species, whatnot. This type of book would probably require some time, however, MK's 25th anniversary is coming up, and this would be an essential collector's item.

I believe that TYM is a pretty big...

A couple years has passed now since @ded & Gambid from MKSecret.net released the last "The History of Mortal Kombat video. But yesterday, "The History of Mortal Kombat - Vol 10 - Out of the Arena" was released, so to get some newer members of the MK & TYM community hip to this amazing video series, I decided to put together a compilation of all 10 volumes, along with some other special videos the MKSecrets.net krew have done over the years. Check them out, and give some love to the guys over Twitter & subscribe to their Youtube page. In the meanwhile, enjoy!!

Hey guys, just got back in to see if Sektor had any stealth nerfs and I found this immediately. We looked for so long to find post patch missile setups and from my earlier tech thread you'll remember I found a way to guarantee UM's on knockdown that lead to armour breaking and a 50/50 if you committed. This was all at the cost of a bar to MB your B12+4 mid combo.

Unfortunately, the hitstun has been adjusted without being listed in the change log. The opponent now gets up way faster which makes the whole setup impossible. Back to the drawing board it seems. I'm going to be honest, I'm sad about this one. It cost a bar and was unsafe it you went for the 50/50's you compromised a lot of damage for that knockdown for the bar usage. But it is what it is. We fly for hypespotting tomorrow which leaves us no time to actually explore the changes Triborg received.

Big thanks to: Jesse Baker, Ryan Otto, NS | Gilgamesh, Fiatcha, TiZ, Schnets, BxA | Jackal, Arkayne, DCB.NB | ElitheCurry, Roy Bisel, all those who helped with the teardown, and anyone I am unfortunately forgetting at the moment.

SFV turnout was just about what we predicted, so thank you for coming out and showing off some great gameplay! Improvements will be made to the scheduling, registration, and volunteer process from now on, so that we will start on time, get teammates separated properly in round one, and end on time. I want to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who brought equipment. Without those setups, we would have been dead in the water. Roll call for tournaments went well, so we will continue to do that. Lastly, disqualification rules for not arriving on time to your match will be looked over and modified to encourage players to remain in the area, or at least give the bracket runner a heads up if you have to leave briefly.

Another HIGHLY successful Tournament, many new faces, many familiar faces, but only ONE winner. Battle of the DarkMoon (Xbox One) was just as, if not more, successful than the February PS4 Tournament! Thank you to everyone who participated, watched, helped, chatted, gave compliments, EVERYTHING! These events are truly a great way to end the month! Big shoutout to @Tim Static and everyone who's been helping promote awareness and hype for the series so far!

We will be back next month with the 2nd PS4 tournament edition!

Another month went by and the Sydney monthly tournament, York Street Battles (YSB) returned for its 40th instalment. This tournament was special particularly for the online Australian Mortal Kombat community. Saggat83, an online MKX warrior, made his first offline appearance at the Sydney major OHN. Saggat did well in the first offline tournament he entered however the experienced tournament players took advantage of some of the bad online habits that he had and knocked him out of the tournament. Saggat took the experience as a learning opportunity and continued to work hard and seek advice from the top Australian players until he was able to level up enough to win his first Mortal Kombat tournament. Congratulations Saggat for winning YSB40 and being an inspiration for all the online warriors out there!

Hey gang, BanTheTesters here again, and while Final Round 19 might be over the hype for the event sure isn't. Something interesting happened during the tournament when a 17 year old young man by the name of @killtron187 stepped up to the plate to see who was the best at MKXL...and the results as pointed out in a thread video post by @EVB Alright RyRy were well...if you have not see it already you might want to take a look...

Welcome to the Episode 7 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.

In today's episode, Cabjoy, Gilbagz and SpruceMoose (Vlad) have a chat with Melbourne's Pan1cMode. We kick things off with a reminder about upcoming events and an intro into how Pan1cMode got into the fighting game genre and community. We discuss his recent performance in Googie's online tournament #5. We touch on characters we play, including Cryomancer Sub Zero and Jacqui, and go into detail about Triborg. We wrap things up with some Cryo sub discussion, who we think is strong in XL and a short QnA.

Hey everyone! After careful consideration, I have decided to show off the Mystic tech that I have been teasing for the past week or so.
As said in the video, this works with ALL projectiles in the game. So feel free to explore it!

PLEASE NOTE! If this has been found before I apologize; I have not seen any videos about it anywhere, so I decided to share the wealth. In all honesty, I'd be pretty surprised if no one has found this yet..Anyway, enjoy!
