Flying out from Boston to LA for the ESL finals was 100% worth it, best MKX related experience I have had so far. The tournament itself was extremely hype to watch in person, but the best part was to get to meet a ton of great people that I had thus far only interacted with via this forum, twitch, etc. A few days before the finals, I also went to the EGP local and, despite going 1-2 in the tournament, got the chance to commentate some matches for the first time, including commentating with @PND_Ketchup, @ARMOR and Nubcakes. Special shoutout to @EGP Wonder_Chef - you were very welcoming to me both at the local and at ESL finals, and you were the one who asked if I wanted to commentate. It was also fun playing some casuals with you at the after party! @EGP_Compton and @Clutch8 - you were both incredibly cool and welcoming as well, I really appreciated it.

In general, it was awesome to see how friendly everyone in

Hey everyone its Jay aka BanTheTesters here to once again drop some nerd knowledge on you for one BIG article. If anyone has ever followed the FGC closely you know that wrestling and fighting games almost go hand and hand, but some of you might not know how close together the groups get, and today I’m here to explain more…​

The largest tournament in TOTFC history, MKX barely beating out Sm4sh with 51 entrants! Competitors from all over the east coast traveled for a slice at what ended up being a $2,000 pot bonus (1500+500 extra for getting the most entrants). Traveling up from Orlando FL were the oD boys, and guys let me tell you they will be a force to reckon with. From Jersey, we had the likes of Jupiter, REO, J360 and more. From Delaware, Mr Dragon. Guys from all over the midatlantic ranging from Maryland to Carolinas. I could not be more proud as someone who helps organize it to see so many new faces and to show people how we do here in va once more.

Let's get into the action! This tournament bread some new rivalries and kindled some already existing ones. This turned into a straight bloodbath between team TGS and oD. It started with a last round nailbiter between Mr Aquaman and Atai, 2-1 in aquas favor the tension was already set, both teams watching and more bracket was to be played. Sticking on the winners side we had the first match to make top 8. With oD 2EZ coming off the upset over the previous TOTFC champ kevodaman, he was set to play TGS Zappa. In what turned into another nailbiter (there will be a theme here) Zappa pulls is out with his shaper Shinnok 2-1. In losers we saw two incredibly close matches between the teams with TGS Yams closing it out last round 2-1 over oD 2EZ and TGS Sidthehaze clutching it out vs oD Full-Autos amazing you guessed it, full auto jacqui. Everytime the teams met it was last round. TGS took this battle, but we look forward to the next time we battle. These guys got some serious MKX game. Check out below for more:

Hey Guys. I was given/donated 4 extra Beta Kodes by some of my friends who for some reason have extra. Obviously I don't need 6 Beta Kodes (2 for myself used) so I thought it'd be fun to host a Single Elimination tournament for both Xbone and PS4 this Sunday night. Winner wins a beta Kode.

Also, I know there are some of you out there that possibly are thinking "Mannnnn I could never win this tournament, I just love Mortal Kombat and would love to try this Beta", well say no more, I'm hosting an official Mortal Kombat X Game show. *Hint Hint* Think of "The Price Is Right MKX"

Yes, the details of this will remain secret until the show begins, but first let's get to some details below:

Eric @Decay Tran announced on his Facebook page about ten days ago that he will be heading to Chicago to work closely with the very same folks that make his favorite game, Mortal Kombat. By the time I saw the post he had already received mounds of well-deserved attention for this accomplishment. Back in June of 2014 he posted a thread called "Decay's Sketchbook". This thread is filled with all kinds of sketches throughout in case you'd like to see some of his work. I guess the only sad part about looking at the images now is most of his pieces are likely sold.

Regardless, it's awesome to know that Eric has a real chance to show off his skills to NetherRealm. We of course, wish him the best! See the Facebook post below:

Continuing our ongoing tradition, even this year we're going to have a multiple fighting games tournament. This year, we picked just a few of the most anticipated titles in our area and would like to invite you for the MKX tournament that will be taking place. Other games on the list are: Street Fighter 5, Guilty Gear Xrd Sign and The King of Fighters 13.

Last year, we were a part of the official MKX European event. Every year before, we organized one or more tournaments through out the year. See our gallery at http://46.16.186.66/~cza/gallery/ We became part of European SF, GG and KOF communities and we'd like to be part of MKX as well. Let me know who would be interested in such event in Prague. You will meet some of us in Viennality in March.

I will update this page as soon as we can reveal more details.

So I was playing against cr_Dragon when this bug occurred. We both let go of our controllers the second I blocked his X-Ray since he was on Caltrops with 1% health left. Surprisingly, he stood there for a few seconds before dying. Is this a possible bug? It turns out if Erron Black blocks an X-Ray while caltrops are out, the caltrops lose their ability to damage the opponent over time. This can be game changing in the small scenarios this can happen when the opponent has a sliver of health left.
