We've come to the conclusion of week # 4 of the Kombat Cup. With no Fox in the building (he attended GUTS 4 this past weekend), the floor was wide open for other competitors to make a name for themselves and boy, did they! Below are images that showcase a few highlights during week # 4 of the Kombat Cup as well.

Since I've known about @michaelangelo from 2011 when he first made a name for himself during the PDP National Mortal Kombat 9 tournament, he's always been a top player in the NRS FGC. As well, through the years he's always been someone who is very friendly, competitive and does whatever he can to boost the scene... and he's always doing it with a smile on his face.

As we approach the 3 month marker dry-spell for Injustice 2 news... we know at the point the game is in heavy production and we're only going to get scraps. What I mean by scraps is feeding off of Ed Boon's twitter. When being active on his twitter account, he was asked about new characters and naturally all Ed could say is

I'm delighted to share with you a truly exceptional piece of work. Our own @Eddy Wang has put tremendous effort into preparing a unique analysis of a set between @SonicFox5000 and @Tweedy. Read the descriptions below and enjoy the video. Feel free to comment to share your gratitude towards Eddy, ask any questions, or to request a similar analysis for another FT3 set.

I'm excited to bring to you the first of what will be a repeating series of articles. As the title suggests, I will be bringing you 3-5 exhibition/tournament matches, from the past 2 weeks, that I believe should not be missed.

Also, I am not the most gifted in the area of graphic design and have limited time as it is. Therefore, if anyone fancies creating a fitting graphic to be used as a thumbnail for this series of articles please PM them to me.

First, this week's Kombat Cup final between @SonicFox5000 and Dragon.
An absolutely brilliant set exhibiting top level play, with Sonic exhibiting his Sektor vs Dragon's Kitana. A much more exciting match compared to the prepatch Alien mirrors we were used to from these two.
Second, another Kombat Cup match, but between @Tweedy and @YOMI RM JagoBlake. In a true demonstration of high level footsies,...

Hello everyone,

We at the Kombat Cup are looking for some feedback on our online tournament system. We want to gauge interest on a few things and would love to see this grow into something even larger!

I want everyone here to answer these questions.

NEC (Northeast Championships XV) is approaching fast; Dec. 17-18 to be precise. NEC has always been regarded as of the very largest East Coast events (if not the largest) that is ran by @BigE . It's the time of the year where if you wanna see the vast majority of the competition coming together to dust off the hiatus and burn the tumbleweed... you want to make plans to either attend or make sure you

I'm sure by now your Injustice palates have gone quite dry with the lack of news as of late, but thanks to @PND_Ketchup , @PND_Mustard , @Kitana Prime and @michaelangelo we're in luck! For those who may not recall, sometime ago there was a GameStop expo w/ a special exhibition match between KitanaPrime and Michaelangelo. [Read our previous article where Michaelangelo discusses his experience from back in September, here] This "Condiment Cast" covers all things Injustice 2 that they both experienced

Back in later October @YOMI RM JagoBlake posted an article announcing ESL Community Cups! Well, the time has come. This article strictly serves as a reminder of the ESL Community Cup that will be live tomorrow at 3PM EST.

It's a bit early for EVO news, but we'll take it! Usually EVO items get revealed in January, however, last night the Official EVO twitter started talking. Apparently, in one week we will be seeing a trailer for EVO 2017 or at least something similar.

In 8 hrs, tonight at 8PM EST, many eyes will be tuned into Stream.me/KombatCup to view if @SonicFox5000 will take yet another win in another tournament. SonicFox is without a doubt the strongest player in MKXL and the most undefeated in Mortal Kombat history. @Tweedy will be taking him on tonight and had strong words for Sonic just days ago.

When it came to Tweedy's neutral game, he said, "I'm going to show SonicFox on Wednesday!" among other things towards the end of the stream when Tweedy defeated @YOMI RM JagoBlake 3-0 to take the

@Mrfinesse28 invites you to check out some of his Raiden, Master of Storms combos and setups. This variation of Raiden is seemingly the lesser-used out of all three variations, so it's definitely nice to have some light shed on it. Other Raiden players who use this variation (just to name a few): @YOMI REO @STB Shujinkydink

On November 5th, approximately 50 European challengers gathered in Rotterdam to fight for the title of AFK XL 2016 champion. It was a day filled with hype, upsets, some crucial drops, and a whole lot of comradery. In the end it was SnK HappyPow from France who claimed the title with his extremely entertaining reptile, after beating EXiLE Crathen's Grandmaster Sub-Zero in a hardfought grand finals.

I would like to thank all the players who showed up to support our scene and the hundreds of viewers in the Twitch chat. GGs to all, and I personally hope to see everyone again at the next big European event.

Top 16:
1) SnK Happypow (France) // Nimble Reptile / Ancestral Kung Jin
2) EXiLE Crathen (Italy) // Grandmaster Sub-Zero
3) IrishMantis (Ireland) // A-List Johnny Cage / Stunt Double Johnny Cage
4) EXiLE RZA (France) // Crystalline Tremor /...
