A little over one month ago, some Capcom beef starting pricking our front door courtesy of PG Punk, is currently one of, if not the current # 1 Capcom (Street Fighter) player in the world. It began over nothing; it began over a follower of Punk's on twitter discussing what characters they would use. This is when Punk started chiming in about how great he'd be at Injustice 2 while calling out SonicFox all at the same time. He was even quoted saying, "Once I beat SonicFox I'm done with Injustice forever." <--- Read more about it here.

It just so happens that Circa FOREVER KING had the opportunity to face PG Punk last night in a first-to-10 in Injustice: Gods Among Us. FOREVER KING is of the top ranking in the NetherRealm Community and has
For the Cyborg players out there who have been craving some info on how their main compares to his IGAU counterpart, the condiment brothers have you covered.

Enjoy their breakdown of the upgrades that Cyborg has received going into Injustice 2:
Huge shoutouts to @PND_Ketchup and @PND_Mustard for the video, gives a lot of new info on what's changed regarding GA. His damage is looking pretty insane with boxing glove arrow, and it can be pulled out after hitting an ice arrow with enough time to continue the combo as well. There are a lot of other adjustments as well in the video, watch and discuss!

The long wait for DLC news is almost over! News has just broken via Ed Boon's Twitter account that we will be receiving some kind of DLC news tomorrow!

We don't yet know the extent of the news - how many characters will revealed, what skins will be revealed etc. But be sure to check back tomorrow as we will be sharing the information as soon as it breaks!

Congratulations to HARA Rewind, who beat SonicFox for the second time in a row this Season, this time in Grand Finals of the week!

This also secures Rewind's place in 5th for the Finale of Season 2 on Sunday.

You can see how the night played out below:
Yahoo eSports recently conducted an interview with Ed Boon regarding Injustice 2. There is some basic information thrown around like "how did they pick the cast, etc" but the meat and potatoes of the interview is around the 6 minute marker. Boon is asked about player feedback and whether it plays a role in decisions. Boon is quick to start nodding "yes" before the question is even over.

Boon explains that they listen to the community through social media, the competitive scene (likely means both viewing forums and speaking to the players face-to-face at events) and says it is a "significant" amount of influence in the game. This is not surprising or really anything new, but it's definitely music to our ears to keep hearing from NetherRealm Studios. We love you, NetherRealm.

Check out the interview here.
Straight from the Injustice Twitter account, news of the next WatchTower stream.

This Friday we will be getting breakdowns for 3 characters including Darkseid! We will also have more of the Multiverse Mode shown off.

Be sure to tune in 3:00 PM on Friday, I'm sure this is one that's not to be missed!

Hey folks!

I'm already getting Deja Vu with this stuff, but our latest addition to the "Getting Started" series features Deadshot.

Happy to put some of my writeup sections into video form at last, but some of what I listed in the old thread is no longer possible in the build we played.

One again, this was captured from a pre release build. So please keep that in mind!

Sup guys,

On the 29th of April, we hosted our final MKXL tournament at the dojo, before Injustice 2 comes out.
We had 20 participants, including the French community, some people of the German community, and Julialook, coming all the way from Moscow!

The matches were great, hanging out with everyone was a blast!

Congrats to RZA, you're beast!

Hey guys,

Mustard and I have been away for a couple of days for the Tekken 7 UK Championship, but now we're home, we've been able to work on more Injustice 2 content!

Continuing with our "Getting Started" series, this time we focus on Gorilla Grodd.

Reno Racks, creator and owner of Yomi Gaming has recently announced the closing of the gaming team. If you're unfamiliar with Yomi, they had their streak of dominance in the Mortal Kombat XL period to where most of the top players wore the Yomi gear. Players consisted of Michaelangelo, FOREVER KING, REO, DJT, Slayer, JagoBlake just to name a few.

In fact, some would say Yomi was killing the game due to lack of rivalry... they were that good. You can find Reno's final Yomi message below:
The clown prince of crime has arrived. Click to see the Injustice 2 Joker trailer!

I don't know where to begin. An unwiffable super, lasers that hit behind, he looks incredible.

Watch for yourselves:
