After the unfortunate disbanding of Yomi Gaming, the team parted ways while keeping in contact via social media platforms. Forever King was soon welcomed to Circa eSports while Broken Alliance signed his younger brother, Forever King Jr.

Last week, two more of the original Yomi pro team were signed by No Surrender Gaming, also known as Team NS, in preparation for Injustice 2's launch next week.

As the Kombat Cup finale neared its end, the Stream.Me crew dropped a bombshell on the NRS community by announcing a competitive series for Injustice 2...War of the Gods!

Like its predecessor, War of the Gods consists of a series of weekly preliminary brackets with points and cash prizes on the line. Competitors can earn points that will increase their chances at qualifying for a Season Finale in September, where they will compete for the title of War of the Gods Season Champion. A total prize pool of $15,000 will be up for grabs throughout the entire series, with $10,000 going towards the Top 6 players for the finale.

A little over one month ago, some Capcom beef starting pricking our front door courtesy of PG Punk, is currently one of, if not the current # 1 Capcom (Street Fighter) player in the world. It began over nothing; it began over a follower of Punk's on twitter discussing what characters they would use. This is when Punk started chiming in about how great he'd be at Injustice 2 while calling out SonicFox all at the same time. He was even quoted saying, "Once I beat SonicFox I'm done with Injustice forever." <--- Read more about it here.

It just so happens that Circa FOREVER KING had the opportunity to face PG Punk last night in a first-to-10 in Injustice: Gods Among Us. FOREVER KING is of the top ranking in the NetherRealm Community and has

Huge shoutouts to @PND_Ketchup and @PND_Mustard for the video, gives a lot of new info on what's changed regarding GA. His damage is looking pretty insane with boxing glove arrow, and it can be pulled out after hitting an ice arrow with enough time to continue the combo as well. There are a lot of other adjustments as well in the video, watch and discuss!

Yahoo eSports recently conducted an interview with Ed Boon regarding Injustice 2. There is some basic information thrown around like "how did they pick the cast, etc" but the meat and potatoes of the interview is around the 6 minute marker. Boon is asked about player feedback and whether it plays a role in decisions. Boon is quick to start nodding "yes" before the question is even over.

Boon explains that they listen to the community through social media, the competitive scene (likely means both viewing forums and speaking to the players face-to-face at events) and says it is a "significant" amount of influence in the game. This is not surprising or really anything new, but it's definitely music to our ears to keep hearing from NetherRealm Studios. We love you, NetherRealm.

Check out the interview here.

Hey folks!

I'm already getting Deja Vu with this stuff, but our latest addition to the "Getting Started" series features Deadshot.

Happy to put some of my writeup sections into video form at last, but some of what I listed in the old thread is no longer possible in the build we played.

One again, this was captured from a pre release build. So please keep that in mind!

Cheers!

Reno Racks, creator and owner of Yomi Gaming has recently announced the closing of the gaming team. If you're unfamiliar with Yomi, they had their streak of dominance in the Mortal Kombat XL period to where most of the top players wore the Yomi gear. Players consisted of Michaelangelo, FOREVER KING, REO, DJT, Slayer, JagoBlake just to name a few.

In fact, some would say Yomi was killing the game due to lack of rivalry... they were that good. You can find Reno's final Yomi message below:
