If you are still having the problem, try smashing a Shao Kahn Chest in The Krypt so it gives you Souls and then put back on the blindfold. This should fix it. Thanks @Roy Arkon

Mr. Aquaman, notable mustache aficionado, is known for many things in the NRS community: being one of two people to play Ares in IGAU, his amazing commentary work after Ares drove him to retire, and for hosting two gigantic online competitive leagues for MKX and Injustice 2.

Insight Into The Minds of Tournament Players!

  • 4,574
  • 52
With MK11 on the horizon, there’s a lot of buzz going around and everyone is hype for the return of Mortal Kombat. The NRS community has come a long way since the MK2 and UMK3 tournament days. I remember the pre MK9 days. Tournaments were 100% for pride only, a test primarily to determine who the best was. There were rarely, if any, pot bonuses, and the community was small. Over the years, our community has grown and developed into a juggernaut and the hard work from everyone in the community has paid off. The reason this website was even created was because of tournaments and we wanted a place that focused on the competitive side of not only the NRS community, but the FGC as a whole. So with that in mind, Tournaments are the main focus of this article.

Only 1 week to go and it looks like it's a reasonable time for the flood gates to be open.

The NRS staff spill the beans on their favorite fatalities in MK11. While it could have been predicted that Ed Boon was going to pick Scorpion's great spear fatality, a few others agree that Johnny takes the cake with his ridiculous ones.

I'm not the biggest fatality fanatic, but yeah, both of Johnny's are my favorite in MK11 without question.
So good lol.
