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.

4 years ago, i reached every single guy i could find that once played MK9 (a year before) in the VSA (Virtual Sports Association) events before they pull the plug on every game they were running and disappear from the grid, and started a tournament of MK9 with only 8 guys.

I remember of already being a TYM member back then, @STORMS saw our article and noticing we're from Africa, Angola, he promoted our stuff in the front page, from there on, it gave me confidence to keep interacting with TYM and managed to make a lot of friends until now, not only in my country, but here on TYM i have my unshakable bonds as well.

Today it marks 4 years since that day, our community has grown big, and continues to get bigger every year, more people from previous MK games, and now even SF players, Tekken Players and so on come to play with MK Titans in any event, in any fighting game, not only we're the most notable MK Tournament community, but also the most diverse in any fighting game in Angola/Luanda, this its part of my life, and thanks to TYM we're what we are today.
We are Back again this year! After great success being Mortal Kombat X's first major we are doing it all again with that same Pacific Northwest taste you've grown to love. Here's the info at the present moment, will be updated as we go along.

Hello my dear, dear friends. As you may have seen over the last few days Joshua Gray (@Clutch8) (the man responsible for ESL MKX in the US) has been showing interest in our enthusiasm for a possible Australian ESL MKX Pro League. To further support what we've told Joshua thus far, I've put together a small survey (with input from @Gilbagz and @Googiemona) to help the guys at ESL know how much we want this!
Ooples Anime
1925 Rutland Dr
Austin, Tx 78758

1. ATP (Any character we wants to play)
2. TheDarkSilence (Pyro Tanya)
3. Rage (Wrestler/Heavy Weapons Jax)

The first rounds were par for the course. However, there were a couple of upsets when Rage eliminated Izzzzymode and when Dust eliminated myself.

The past few weeks Henzzar has been slowly challenging ATP's tournament dominance, while Vibu has been trading games with ATP in casuals. But both of them were absent and an old threat returned from the shadows, TheDarkSilence. He would face ATP in a competitive, 5 game, set in Winners Finals. However, ATP would take the set after switching to Alien. In Losers Finals TheDarkSilence put the NetherRealm mop on Rage for a quick 3-0.
On April 16, 2016, a brand new FGC event was held in Baton Rouge Louisiana known as South Louisiana Major, or SLAM. A $200 dollar pot bonus for MKX enough players to garner a full 32 man bracket, filled with good players from both Louisiana and Austin. In the end, it would end being myself and the hometown hero GOL | BBW Messiah, otherwise known as Rashaan in GF. This set was a runback from Winner's Finals where I admittedly got mopped up, but with a few adjustments I managed to stage a bit of a comeback and make the final score much closer. Link to the archives are below, check them out and help support the newest tournament series to the scene!
