Although you can find the entries of their latest series, Random Select, in the Scorpion, Baraka and Sub Zero forums, it's been an unforgivably long time since we caught up on the Netherkast main show. So, without further ado, what have they been up to?

Well, it's fair to say they're as caught up in the MK11 hype as any of us and spend seemingly every night recording something. Continue......

God. DAMN. What a day it was.

So I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the game super early and boy oh boy, it's hella different from what I expected. Not in a bad way, mind you, but holy shit, I was super lost on how to play. I've been playing lots of MKX these past few weeks so when I got my hands on that early build I was immediately overwhelmed by the lack of mobility options in the game. Continue...

While we won't have the Kombat Kast to drop some Kabal on us for another week, that doesn't mean there isn't stuff going on and reveals coming out. Today we had a Brazilian MK11 reveal event that came out of nowhere (for us North American folks) that dropped some news on us after a few delays. Continue...

At some time in the past thousand years or so, Mortal Kombat was initiated between Outworld and Earthrealm. It is unknown if it had been initiated beforehand, and it is possible that Shao Kahn has attempted to conquer Earthrealm since his conquest of Edenia, but to no conclusion. In response to the initiation of Mortal Kombat against Earthrealm, Lord Raiden formed the White Lotus Society, composed primarily of his worshippers among the Shaolin monks, to recruit and train the finest warriors from across Earthrealm to participate in the tournament across the generations. Shao Kahn’s chief lieutenant in his conquest of Earthrealm was the sorcerer, Shang Tsung.

Legends give various accounts of the history of Shang Tsung. Some say he was a former Mortal Kombat champion who cheated to attain victory and turned for aid to Shao Kahn when damned to age rapidly by the Elder Gods as punishment, others that he was an honourable champion until his defeat by the Great Kung Lao. What all sources... Continue......

I know this is just being discussed in another thread but I thought it may be smart to make a thread notifying everyone as to not get too many hopes up for a Kast tomorrow!

Introduction

Red Hood, also known as Jason Todd. To play Red Hood, you must accept the fact he won't click with you right away, especially if you're a newer player. You're not going to get easy wins with Red Hood, he's a character that requires immense dedication, but it's very rewarding once you commit to him, because once he gets his momentum going, it's hard to stop him.

Ketchup & Mustard, two of the most well respected and recognized figures in the fighting game community AND in eSports today are here TODAY for an AMA to answer your questions about Mortal Kombat 11 and all things eSports!!

As pro competitors, pro commentators and pro analysts this is your chance to pick a couple of the best minds in the FGC today!

Thank you for taking the time to answer questions. With the new hop move mechanic, does that mean that moves like instant air fireballs, instant air jump attacks, and instant air divekicks are now gone for MK11?

We actually don't know. We couldn't really figure out too much about the short hop mechanic. But it could theoretically change how instant airs work.

Excited to find out honestly.

- K&M

How difficult do the d2 Krushing blows seem to be to combo off of?

Is wake up up3 punishable with a jump in?

If there was 1 think you...

So this was a bit of older news that might have gotten overlooked (gotten from EventHubs), the Russian Stream for the MK11 reveal showed off what appears to be a region exclusive costume. At least as of now, there doesn't seem to be any plans to bring this to the rest of the world, but I'd assumed this is time. Continue...
