Test Your Might

Home of competitive Mortal Kombat & Injustice

Since the birth of the Combo Breaker tournament just a few years go, this event hit the ground running. Today, this event is regarded as one of the best fighting game tournaments in the US.

Injustice 2 has approximately 108 entrants including ALD Dragon, FOX SonicFox, RNG WhiteBoi, FOX Theo, Forever King, Noble Iluusions and many more. See below for the stream link:

There has been an enormous amount of discussion on the internet no matter where you're visiting, about Net Neutrality. What is it exactly? Imagine your internet service provider (ISP, i.e. Comcast, Verizon, etc) starting new pricing packages where accessing websites like Facebook now cost $8.99 /per month. Without net neutrality, ISP's will potentially have the power to split rates... see this image below for an example:
Hey guys,

My discord brought up this video that Honeybee posted yesterday and it's pretty interesting. While there's a few characters on this tier list I feel are a bit misplaced, this is a pretty solid tier list.
