This week was by far the most surprising weekly in TGS MKX's history. For the first time we saw a winner outside of who we call the 5 gods of sova. YAMS, Gimpy, Zappa, Mr Aquaman, and Sidthehaze, all present, would not win That MK Weekly. This was also our largest tournament in over a month so great stuff to the scene for showing up and supporting the game. Keeping it short and simple this week.

Season 3 is moving along nicely at GBS. 2 weeks ago, N1k0lasss in especially extra frazzled hair, declared while looking down at his chicken soup, lamenting "My name should be changed to Freek0lasss." That next week he went on to win GBS, and he also won GBS last night! He is now fired up and excited to be going to SCR with GBS' other juggernauts, PPJ and Dizzy. We wish Dizzy, PPJ, and N1k0lasss luck at SCR this weekend!

After a week off due to most people being absent we got back to our usual bracket, with only some people being absent this week. We had Nausea returning from Red Fight District where he made top 16 so congratulations to him! Though we were only left with 6 and the console was missing the hotfix for some reason (which was messing up run cancels for a few of us, myself included) we got on with the bracket anyways and had some good matches :)

Man of the night definitely goes to Azarath who not only got his first top 3 but was playing out of his mind in a FT5 he had offscreen with Nausea's Raiden before the tournament started and was pulling off some of the most amazing conversions I've seen from a D'Vorah since @HoneyBee . Meanwhile I was off at InputErrorFest 2015 with my good friend ol' buddy ol' pal Mr PS4 Pad this week but once I get my converter (which should be within two weeks) I won't have to worry about that any more :D

It seems this week Nausea's relentless Deceptive pressure was too much for his opponents to handle but he didn't get there easily...Bigfool fought him twice and wasn't for letting him take him out without a fight, even pulling out a new variation in grand finals!

A full Euro Kombat without stream and disconnect issues??? Yes it has happened (except PSN going down lol). Emerging victorious (and defeating last months winner stosn) was IrishMantis, showing that Stunt Double might be as broke as A-List. Seriously though, Irish and stosn had some hype as fuck matches, don't miss them out. Shoutouts to @1man3letters for co-commentating with me, @JerQ_Q for providing stream saltiness/drama, wba4life1 (TYM name?) for making it to top three in their first tournament and @Wam-Zlay for being the ONLY OG EK contestant.​

Results:
1st place: @FireBreather / IrishMantis (Johnny Cage/Kano)
2nd place: @stosn (Jacqui/Cassie)
3rd place: wba4life1(Kotal Kahn/Shinnok)

4th place: Man0_GRC (Scorpion)
5th place tie: JerQ_Q (Tanya/Sonya/Quan Chi), wolfman0r (Erron Black/Kung Jin)
7th place tie: vladmag21 (Sub-Zero), WhitePacSoldier (Shinnok/Kano)
9th place tie: lDockl (DQ'd), Deakins (Sub-Zero), WamZlay (Reptile), phosferrax (DQ'd)
13th place tie: leonlior (DQ'd), Osagri (Jax), varttihullu (Reptile)

Verizon issued a statement via Phil Burrows on his Twitter account, in regards to the EGL Dallas 10k event Epic! Gaming Lounge several weeks back. Below is a screenshot of his tweet:

With a spectacular run through the Winners bracket, Blind Ducky further proves why he is one of NorCal's elite players. He was clearly the man to beat, as he lost only three matches the entire night. Two of those three defeats, came from Mister Nanj in their Winners Finals match, which is easily the best set in the archive. Congratulations to Ducky for an amazing performance and winning the Lion's Share of the pot and a Reptile Replica Movie Mask!​

On the back of Australia's nationals last month (OHN13), this week's turnout was strong with everyone eager to put on a show. Shoutouts to all of the first timers and to those who travelled long distances to make it to the tournament. A particularly impressive showing by Godspeed, who's only recently started attending Sydney locals but is proving to be one of the fastest learners in the community. Also big shoutouts to HaRami for taking 4th place after being overseas for over a month.

Hello people! Spanish MK community is not a big one, however, we want to change that. So, finally, I'm proud to announce the first MKX big event made by us: Iron Fighters tournament! 31th October & 1st of November (Finals). The MKX tournament shares place with 2 more, TTT2 and USF4. You can check the website: http://www.ironfighters.es/

Because the website is in spanish, I let here the relevant info:

Prizes: Today there's a 300€ pot for each tournament. We are still looking for more sponsors to increase that amount. Besides, all money from registrations (8€ each one) will go to prizes.

How to get here: If you are travelling from outside of Spain, contact us. You could travel to Madrid or Malaga, and we will get you here by car.

This one is thrilled to present your "Not Slugfest" October tournament (that's been given a much cooler name) from Gameclucks in beautiful Lynnwood, WA. Unfortunately Highline college is unavailable for events for the next few months. However this does mean that Mr. Anderson and Team Khaos are hosting more fighting game events at GC in the meanwhile. Last night's event featured some of Washington's most talented players and also me. As usual for us, many old faces were missed and new ones were welcomed.

Returning to MK3, I found this infinite. Jk is universal infinite, I'm not 100% sure if the throw can be restored in a real fight.
MK3 Rev2.1 vs any character, vs Tsung Jk variation is very difficult. Check it out below:

Hello TYM. Apparently, it's a good time to be an MKX player in India, we are finally getting some nice tournaments and this will be the 3rd major event with MK X being hosted. The prize pool has not been announced yet, despite repeated questions about it. MK X was added after it gained overwhelming support from the community. I'm hoping this will be a fun event and hopefully, many more events are coming for the Indian FGC.

I will be speaking to the TOs to make sure the event runs smoothly with proper brackets, up to date patches and whatnot. If you're there, I'm be the goof with "dingodile" written on the back of my t-shirt. Holler at me!

Cheers!

Interesting/recommended corner combos of varying difficulty to try on versus gameplay. Exhibition of all characters starting with the opponent on the ground. So no antiair, no punishers etc. Also well know H.Smoke/Ermac combos were ignored to not bore. :) Enjoy!

Thank you to everyone for attending! We had some intense competition, and the players all had a great time. The stream was going strong with content, but unfortunately the videos got corrupted again. I am pretty sure I know what happened, and will not be making the same mistake again.

FINAL EDIT 28-09-2015

With a GREAT turnout of 29 players, mostly OG, some MKX crew and some passerbyes, UMK3 received its "Happy Birthday Present". Despite some lag present due to the dual display employed to give a better view to the spectators, we had a blast of a night! Some notable (and MAD HYPE) pools and QF/SF were recorded, and the entire Top 4 as well. All of them via live recording (not direct feed) and the crowd can be heard very well and loud.

MKT n64 got a decent turnout with 17 players as well.

Hello all this is Jay here (Jason Moore aka “Ban The Testers" on Twitter) again. Some of you TYM folk might know me as a tournament commentator for such events as Texas Showdown to the Insomnia Weeklies and for channels such as Kombat Houston for @Cat , and Panda X Gaming!

I’m Here to bring something a little new to TYM to show my love for MK and its community with an article series I have Dubbed “ Mortal Kombat Media Mondays” (working title) which will explore Mortal Kombat through popular culture such as Movies, TV shows, and Music (I assume it’s the theater student in me)! Now let’s meter burn this thing and get cracking (I am soooooo sorry about that one…)!
