There were a number of hurdles that we had to overcome last night, not the least of which was switching venues mid tournament. Because of the delays two players had to leave before they could finish their matches. However, we had the biggest turnout of the year so far, with at least 3 new faces also. Most importantly, everyone had fun! Check out more below:

Thursday evening, MK co-creater Ed Boon took to his twitter account, as he's done alot recently with asking all kinds of questions, and posed a question to the MK community: "Next?" This poll has 3 options: Kombat Pack 3, MK11 or Shaolin Monks sequel. No mention of Injustice 2, tho one would have to think they're fairly well into development on I2, tho nothing has been made official yet....but E3 is right around the corner keep in mind. So, what would or did you pick? Why? And make sure you vote in our version of the same question.

Update: Ed's Poll is done. Here is the results:
Hey, everyone. There is a new video series I'm working on for MKXL that will specifically be targeted towards newer and beginner players looking to gain more knowledgeable or become better at MKXL. Below is the first of many videos to come. Each video is going to target a specific area of MKXL. If you guys have any feedback or suggestions, feel free to post them here. I have over 30 topics so far that I will be going over. Check out the first one below:
YOYOYO GUESS WHATTT???? Let me introduce to you our new champion of BORN TO FIGHT YC TOURNAMENT: DatProStunner
This tourney was very hype! A lot of coffee, D2 from dowtown, slide ex, fucking armor, and SALTY!!! DAMN DANIEL!!! A big level last night guys. First of all, thank you to all, team mates, fighters,viewers.
It's a real pleasure for me to purpose that. I think some people forgot this tourney but it doesn't matter, next time i hope you will be there. This time we tried a 64 players tourney, single elimination. It was great ! I think next time we go back with our basic form : 32 players max / pool - round robin >>> top 8 double bracket ...

So let me give you my feelings about top 8 players :
I really hope this helps all players learn to deal with Tarkatan and his slew of mix ups. After this video you should never be worried about F134 or rekkas again. Characters that fit the rule of "13" are as follows and I may have left some out:

Kitana (EX DP)
Kano (ex balls or up balls)
Cassie (Ex Flip)
Lao (Ex Spin)
Sub (Ex Slide)
Reptile (Ex Slide)
Kenshi (Kenjutsu Push, Possessed Push)
Warlock Quan (Low Scoop)
Leatherface (command grab)
Sektor (flame thrower)
Ermac (soul charge/ ex push)
Shinnok (ex charge)
Johnny (ex nutpunch)
Jax (ex dash punch )
Scorpion (ex takedown)
Erron black (ex command grab)
Jason (choke and corpse grab)
Takeda (Ronin rising sword)
Tanya (low drill)
(I believe this is a super underrated MU because of this)

Enjoy! And please do not take my humor for agenda as stated in the video. Also be on the lookout for the next video on Alien I promise in this video. IT WILL GUARANTEE YOU VICTORY VS ALIEN 100% of the time or your e-Sports money back ;)
OUG is ready to kick start the year 2016 with their Season 1 Fighting Game Community event in the month of May. Last year after successfully hosting and organizing tournaments in Middle East, UAE, Dubai and implementation of ranking system that is linked to tournaments and making the players seed based on their stats has really boosted the participants to play the game more competitively, this year we have to see who will be crowned at numero uno spot.

This May OUG will be debuting Street Fighter V into the line of games in addition to Super Smash Bros. Wii U, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Mortal Kombat XL. The stage is all set for all the gamers to put their skills to the test and battle it out for glory. The venue for this event is set to take place in Dubai at Holiday Inn Express Dubai Airport.

Hey all, I have made a new video about Scorpion. This time I decided to try and do a fancy combo video. Keep in mind that the goal was not high damage output, but making them to look cool :)

Enjoy! Peace!
Last night we held a tournament that was completely full of killers. Honeybee, Biohazard, Shujinkydink, DoctorStabs, Aura, and Semiij just to name a few. Add in some flawlesses, some teabags, and some very close match-ups...we could not have thought of a better way to introduce ourselves to the world. Let along, our very own to win the whole thing!

Top 8 were as follows:

Big thanks to: Jesse Baker, NS | Gilgamesh, BxA | EMPEROR Eevee, TiZ, alxndr, BxA | Jackal, Steel, and anyone I am unfortunately forgetting at the moment.

Things went pretty well! Smash.gg worked well, and so I am excited to continue using the website for pre-registration and brackets throughout Spring Series 2016. The only hiccup was that some players who pre-registered did not show up, and so were put in the bracket on the off chance they would be late. They did not end up showing, and so the bracket had unintentional byes. This will be fixed with a more organized sign-in at the front desk. Thanks for your patience and understanding! Check out the results below:
York Street Battles has long been THE monthly event for Sydney's FGC. We've been lucky enough to hit 20+ entrants for MKX for most months since the games release, and this month was no exception! Once again we had Castiel fly down from Queensland to get his last chance to practice prior to next fortnight's major, Battle Arena Melbourne 8. We also had Ghost Police come all the way from Canberra (but if we're being honest, he's one of the Sydney crew by now).

Coming off the back of Wollongong's first major last month, Expand Gong, iFat|Gilbagz went into YSB #41 with a target on his back. Placing at this month's YSB was extra important, with seeding points for BAM8 on the line. With an early bracket loss to Wazminator, iFat|Gilbagz's chances were looking a little grim but he persevered! Climbing through losers bracket in top 8, all the way to GF where he stole the victory from Saggat83 with a clean 3-0, 3-1. Saggat83 for the last however many events has placed consistently in top 3, showing he's a force to be reckoned with, while I rejoined top 3 for a second month with my return to the lord of Woolay himself, Quan Chi. We had some absolutely incredible sets this weekend, so please please check them out. For any of you Cryomancer non-believers, I think you'll get a pleasant surprise if you sit back and enjoy @Gilbagz's matches. Catch the results after the break:

I was quick this time! Episode 9 of The Friendly Alliance is up on YouTube and available as an MP3! This episode is important for everyone (at least the first half an hour), as we discuss the significance of a potential MKX ESL Pro League in Australia. Please give it a listen and help us try to achieve this goal!

Episode details:
Welcome to the Episode 9 of The Friendly Alliance Podcast! The Friendly Alliance podcast is an MKX podcast co-hosted by Cabjoy and Gilbagz that is primarily designed for leveling up the Australian scene while highlighting some of our key players and their stories.

We're back this time with discussion of the recent social media push to support a potential Australian ESL MKX Pro League. We go through the progress that we've made as the Australian MKX scene (in terms of gaining the attention of members of ESL as well as notable MKX personalities such as Perfect Legend and Kitana Prime), as well as what we need to be doing to show how much we want this. We also touch on keeping an open mind when having your gameplay critiqued, how the three of us got involved with the competitive FGC, the beginnings of offline NRS scene in Sydney and have a brief discussion of sandbagging and hiding tech. Check it out below:
What's up TYM.

The title says it all. I'm back. Not only am I back but I'm gonna be grinding hard asf to get back to the top.

Lately I haven't been playing much due to the lack of motivation to play. Between soccer, school and work I just haven't had time to or the will to play.

Recently I had the urge to play a couple games with some people online. After a few games and playing around with different characters I became interested in JC. His playstyle fits how I want to play and now I've gotten my passion back to become top dog.

I'm going to be streaming everyday, grinding and learning MUs so feel free to message me so we can get games in.

I'm willing to play games with ANYONE. I need all the MU experience I can get.

Oh ya and @SonicFox5000 I'm coming for you at evo. Im undefeated vs you in tournament and I PROMISE you that you'll be forever shutout in the Curbo vs Sonicfox MU ;)

Hit me up on xbone: CURBOLICOUS or ps4: LICOUSCURB.
