New patch for MK11 is out, initial reports are saying the forfeit exploit that allowed losers in ranked to stall out matches after a loss is gone. Whether or not anything else was done remains to be seen.
This was a busy weekend for the FGC: not only did we have another event for the MK11 Pro Kompetition with Celtic Throwdown, we had the start of BigE season with Summer Jam. Celtic Throwdown wrapped up this morning and Summer Jam's Top 8 is wrapping up in a few hours. For all details and results, go look below:
Offcast takes a time out to talk about the casual scene of the FGC and MK, as MK was like the best selling game of 2019. Interesting stuff from a thoughtful and great content creator that is NOT a shill "influencer"...
Spawn is a thing finally happening. After being assured by people for the past 8 years that he was definitely going to be the last DLC character in whatever game was out, that dream is finally coming true. Today, NRS has put up a render showing off how he looks in the new game engine.
my name is Matthias I am 30 years old and from Germany. Back in 2016 I've organized anEU only MKX online league with @Vjeekes and people from Devil Apes. Many people attended and we have a lots of fun. I'll revive the Kombat League in MK11 at September 15th starting with a 32 Player Group Phase kick off. When we have lots of more competitors i will allow up to 64 Players.
I have been keeping track of what characters, which variations, and how many games they have been played throughout the MK 11 Pro Tour T8s. All of this should be mostly correct, but I won't pretend that I didn't drink a lot of beers while watching these...so giving or taking a game for some of the higher numbers might be an okay idea. Also, I didn't count mirror matches as double, this is just a straight up count of how many times a character was seen in a Pro Tour T8 game.
Sorry to give TYM only a weeks notice on this one, but TFGT's magnificent comeback is happening next Saturday, at Buffalo Game Space in Buffalo NY!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with TFGT, the former 10 TFGT tournaments were popular tournaments held in Buffalo, NY. Buffalo has a strong, populous MK11 scene, and can be used as a meeting point between scenes in Ontario in Canada, Ohio, Central New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and more!
Here is the description of the event written by the lead organizer, Brian Stone, from the event's Facebook page....
Hey guys, the TYM News Show is still around with a weekly round up of the latest happenings in the NRS/TYM community. The new intended schedule is a new episode at the beginning of each week (Monday/Tuesday).
So in checking out their channel with the recent Choose Your Destiny on Nightwolf, I noticed Ketchup did this meta-analysis video of one of the most broken games in the MK series, Armageddon. About 2 weeks old, but we didn't do a post and this was cool, so here you go.
