@PND_Mustard has recently conducted an interview with Final Round 20 winner Noble Dragon.

In the interview they discuss Dragon's mental state facing Sonic Fox, his thoughts when selecting characters to play, his road from online warrior to one of the best players in the world and his thoughts going into Injustice 2.

It's a very interesting listen, and gives you a chance to rewatch some of Dragon's matches from top 8 at Final Round.

The FGC and wrestling community seem to be closely linked, with many people being involved in both scenes.

We've recently had the members of UpUpDownDown presenting the latest Injustice 2 character to their audience, spreading the awareness of the game. Now, we get to see NRS fighting game legend and now NRS employee 16 Bit fighting against professional wrestler Kofi Kingston.
Here's the video, enjoy:

Link above for official post about Source Crystals, including a Q&A.

I think we all knew that microtransactions would make it's way into Injustice 2 somehow. Despite them saying there's no way to "pay to win", they never really touched up on whether or not there would be microtransactions at all.

Well, microtransactions ARE in the game -- as expected and speculated by many -- but it seems to be 100% cosmetic only. Here are some important "key points" in the post above:
  • "We value our community and want to be clear – you cannot “pay to win” with Injustice 2."
  • Source Crystals are premium currency that can be bought with real money.
  • They can be used to buy Shaders, Premier Skins, and Transform

Final Round 20 has concluded and it was undoubtedly the most exciting top 8 of recent memory. If this was to be the last MKX major before Injustice 2 releases, we couldn't have asked for a better send off. Demons were beaten, forgotten variations emerged, it was truly a spectacle.

Congratulations to all of top 8. If you weren't able to watch the event live, you can catch the top 8 here.

Results are in the spoiler below, and you may be in for a surprise!

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!

Fresh off the heels of the Shattered Alliances Part 2 trailer, we have received some more news regarding the Watch Tower stream that NRS will be hosting next week.

It had previously been announced that we would be receiving character breakdowns for two characters next week. And the official Netherrealm Studios Instagram account has just shed more light on this situation. It appears that we will be getting character breakdowns for Cheetah and Swamp Thing:
