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!

The First Ronin Dojo for MKX is here! We are incredibly excited to have @shujinkydink aka The Quan Father do a special episode of the Ronin Dojo for us at r24media.com. STB|R24 Shujinkydink continues his quest this year in ESL Season 3, EVO 2016 and in his own backyard NWM. Along the way he has made some amazing tech videos, sharing the information he has gathered through years of playing at a high competitive level. Now, we are lucky enough to have him make one just for us.

Today drops his first (of hopefully many) Ronin Dojo episodes focusing on patience and execution. Check it out, and stay tuned for more Ronin Dojo videos on SFV, MKX and KI.

Tournament Results:
1. Tekken Master ( Kotal Kahn - Blood God )
2. X-Azeez ( Kenshi - Balanced, Kotal Kahn - War God )
3. Bara'a: AKA Shark Teeth ( Kung Jin - Shaolin )
4. Hani Saleh ( Scorpion - Hellfire. Kotal Kahn - Blood God, Subzero - Grand Master )
5. Hassan Ansari ( Ermac - MoS )
5. Gerard Boyajian ( @loogie ) ( Mileena - Piercing, Subzero - Grand Master )
7. Emad Hashem ( Scorpion - Hellfire )
7. Mayed Abdullah ( Kotal Kahn - Sun God )

There was a very good turnout, we had 60 entrants over two days.
Day one was single elimination, day two were the last 16.

Some great matches! too bad not all of them were recorded, and there was no stream either.

There are some great players in the Middle East, prime example is TekkenMaster, and many others as well (e.g. Sharkteeth, dark, razor - we are just not all that exposed to the international tournament scene and rarely get local tournament exposure.

Notable Matches:

Shark Teeth ( Kung Jin - Shaolin )
Beat X-Azeez ( Kotal Kahn War God ) in Semi-Winners --- 3-2

Semi-Losers:

Hani Saleh ( Scorpion - Hellfire ) Eliminated Hassan Ansari ( Ermac - MoS ) --- 3-2

X-Azeez ( Kotal Kahn - War God ) Eliminated Gerard Boyajian ( Mileena - Piercing, Subzero - Grand Master ) --- 3-0

Losers Finals:

X-Azeez ( Kotal Kahn - War God & Blood God ) Eliminated Shark Teeth ( Kung Jin - Shaolin ) --- 3-2

Grand Finals:


Tekken Master ( Kotal Kahn - Blood God ) Eliminated X-Azeez ( Kenshi - Balanced ) --- 3-2

Hype Losers Final .... Winner of the match gets a spot in the MKXL CUP, so it was an intense match for the both of us.

With the birth of a brand new fighting game major in the sunny city of Wollongong (70km south of Sydney) and the nagging voice of yours truly, the scene was able to put on a great showing of talent from both Sydney and Wollongong for the MKXL tournament! With the likes of @Gilbagz, Samoan Mariah Carey and Saggat83 putting in the effort to come down to The Gong, it was going to be a tough time for competitors to make their mark in the tournament. These three fine gentlemen played like absolute monsters on the day and kept the other wishful kombatants at bay, proving why they're among the best. One of the absolute hypest top 3's we've seen (multiple near time outs, SMC knocking Gilbagz into loser with a 3-2 set, then Gilbagz winning the next set 3-2 to take the tournament), we had an unfortunate case of "new tournament mistakes" and have lost the archives of the top 4. Some pools footage is linked below, but you must take my word for it. TOP 3 WAS HYYYYPE! Huge shoutouts to all of the guys who made the effort to take a chance on EG. Without you guys, we would've had no tournament. Love you all!

Season 3 of the ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League has just begun and we need a passionate and energetic MKX enthusiast to help with our editorial and social coverage. We’re looking for a Mortal Kombat expert who is creative and social-media savvy to be an integral part of the ESL team.

The role will be a contracted remote position, and will involve handling live social media coverage during broadcast days as well as writing recaps, player interviews, and any additional editorial content you think MKX fans would be interested in reading!

In-depth knowledge of competitive Mortal Kombat is not the only requirement. The successful MKX content creator will also need to be able to quickly create well-written and engaging social media content, especially during the live broadcasts when they will be responsible for capturing short video highlights throughout the game and engaging with the viewership.

This means that your schedule has to be flexible enough to dedicate your Wednesday nights...

Today we are happy to announce that www.tournamentedition.com is now LIVE! This is the first public beta of TE and we can't wait for you to get your hands on it and try it out. As of today we are launching iOS and the Web. We are launching Windows, Mac, and Linux versions this Friday which have full offline support and offline/online sync. Coming next week as well is full deep linking in iOS (when someone clicks on a web url on an iOS device it opens the app with the corresponding page.)

Since the Android version is being released Q2 of this year, we have made a lite mobile version for android users so they can still view brackets and have basic functionality. The Site is not built for mobile functionality (thats what the apps are for!) so this is a small work around until android release.

We are hoping to get android beta 1 out end of this month.

If you run into any issues during the beta or have any improvement ideas, please email us at [email protected] We would love to hear from you!

Also for all walkthrough videos, documentation and much more check out the official Tournament Edition Blog.

As some of you may know, our petition has been circulating Twitter and Mortal Kombat fan sites. Our petition is not for a character, or some other type of inclusion into MKX, but for this book to be created. I have reached out to Shawn Kittlesen, who has since tweeted about his interest in this project. We have reached 3000, but I'd like to get this more exposure.

What this book is, or will be is a hardcover encyclopedia type book. Think the Marvel and DC Encyclopedias. It would go in depth about every character in the Mortal Kombat universe, their iterations, history, changes, etc. It would also cover the places/stages/memorable moments within the timeline. I have included in the petition that this book should indeed cover both time lines, along with background on different races, species, whatnot. This type of book would probably require some time, however, MK's 25th anniversary is coming up, and this would be an essential collector's item.

I believe that TYM is a pretty big...
