Test Your Might

Home of competitive Mortal Kombat & Injustice

IBA’s Computer Science Society hosted a Mortal Kombat XL tournament during ProBattle’17. The competition took place on the 4th of March where numerous MKXL players hailing from Karachi participated, as well as 2 players from Lahore. PVGF’s founder Tariq Rathore (also known as MKRayden) took the tournament by storm and after being undefeated in all of his rounds, bagged the 1st position. Not only him but PVGF’s Co-founder Khalid Malik (also known as Krausar) also played extremely well throughout the tournament, coming in 3rd place. The tournament had a lot of great players, from Hassan Ur Rehman’s comebacks as Sub-Zero to Rameez Arif’s juggling as Kitana but alas, their skills were not enough to match the might of PVGF’s players.

The tournament's results were even featured in several newspapers!

If you've never heard of SonicFox, then you know nothing of the NetherRealm Studios' community (Mortal Kombat & Injustice), but clearly, we all know him very well. He's been the most dominant and consistently dominant player in our scene... and he's only now turning 19 years old!

Injustice 2 awaits right around the corner and the Fox is ready. But today, we just need to wish him, @SonicFox5000 , a very Happy Birthday! Check out the video Sonic's friends collaborated on below.
We are extremely thrilled to report that @Kitana Prime and @hayatei have been signed by Panda Global for the NRS side of things!
Playstation Access just released a video answering 7 questions about the gear system with Derek from NRS. Throughout the video we get to see some new customization looks and some newer game play (Including more Dr. Fate).
Dr. Fate has arrived! As promised, NetherRealm Studios has just revealed the latest character, Dr. Fate to the Injustice 2 roster! In the trailer below, you will get a sneak peak at Dr. Fate's gameplay, dialogue and super move, "MEET YOUR FATE".
3/1/17 at 12:15 PM EST Stream.Me put out this Tweet announcing their first sponsored player!

I'm glad Stream.Me decided to start sponsoring and Perfect Legend seems like a pretty good place to start. Everyone involved seems very excited and I wish nothing but the best for Perfect Legend and the StreamMe crew!
The Top 8 for Week 3 of Kombat Cup Season 2 finished yesterday in the West on March 1st. It has certainly been an interesting stream! The transcript is enclosed in the spoiler tag below and the results are right under it. For Top 8 and the finals, we had commentary from @Mr Aquaman & @Kitana Prime. If you want to watch the archive, click on the link here:
Today, on the 27th of February, Google Developer Day 1 took place, and during it several companies developing apps for Android took to the stage to talk about what they're making, how Android dev tools have helped them and what they have allowed for the game/app. A senior producer at Netherrealm, Erin Piepergerdes, took to the stage to talk about Injustice 2 mobile, talking about the Gear system, upgraded mechanics from the first mobile game as well as showing a little more of Scarecrow than we've seen so far. The footage shows off a few new moves, including an interesting-looking special move as well as his super move. Check it out in this thread!
If ever you feel like taking a detour during Final Round, you might be interested in paying a visit to the Yomi Gaming HQ, where an FGC party called “Shenanigans 2K17” will take place on March 11th!
Last year's Hypespotting V in Glasgow, Scotland saw Warner Brothers and NRS provide a £10,000 pot bonus. We also saw competitors travel from across the world, with Honeybee and Biohazard heading over from Canada and Tekken Master coming over from Bahrain to Madzin heading over from Germany! Announcing MKXL at Hypespotting VI!

This is currently a side tournament as MKXL was not announced as one of the main games, however with enough interest it might make its way back onto the main stage for the second year!

See inside the thread for more details.
Folks, it's that time again... it seems we're getting another new character reveal next Thursday. The Injustice website has updated once again with a new date for a New Character Reveal. Among the latest character reveals are of Cyborg, Swamp Thing and Black Canary.

If the release times stay the same, you can expect to see a reveal trailer (likely released by IGN) between the hours of 8AM - 12NOON EST. Who do you want it to be?!?
A very interesting post surfaced via the Combo Breaker Twitter account today...

Apparently they are introducing a new twist to their bracket system this year, called "Three-Player Advancement Pools."
IGN just posted a new gameplay video with Swamp Thing footage and he is looking AWESOME. He easily has the most creative move-list so far. He also has the most hilarious roll animation.
