In Mortal Kombat 11, the Flawless Block mechanic was introduced. If you press the 'Block' button within a (3) frame window while being attacked, you will have performed a 'Flawless Block'.

We are going to see some Shang Tsung stuff at some point today. When that is, no one knows. Will he be cool? Yeah, probably. We got some minor teases as to how he'll play from Ed Boon, with Shang possibly being able to turn into other characters as part of his moveset.
Combo Breaker is finally done. 800 players entered and only 1 remained. With some big upsets going on throughout the pools, this was a fantastic start for the Mortal Kombat 11 Pro Circuit and the most energized the NRS scene has been in a LONG time.
Mortal Kombat 11 at Combo Breaker has proven to be an excellent showcase in gameplay with perhaps the most diverse competition we've had so early on in an NRS title with representatives from all over the world including Australia, The Netherlands, Canada, and many more! Competition has been consistently fierce from pools to top 24 play and the momentum hasn't slowed down.
The Kombat Kast is back! Breaking their week long (hiatus?), the crew has come together this week to talk with Rick Hadou, Organizer of Combo Breaker and to get people excited about the biggest major the NRS scene has seen in a long time.
UsedForGlue, Irish NRS player, has found something interesting with Kung Lao and can help make him a deadly force from mid-screen and beyond. Might be a glitch, might be intended, but it's definitely something usable for anyone trying to make Kung Lao work.
Hey everyone, the @Slips and Hippo show is back to cover all things in the world of kompetitive Mortal Kombat 11! This week, Slips and I are taking a look at the recent Beyond the Summit event The Summit of Time, which featured a ton of high level play from some of the scene's best players and gave us a glimpse at the early game meta leading into Combo Breaker. We also talk shop, including expressing some love for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and more classic game talk! A fun show as always, so please check it out.
There's apparently some longstanding beef going on between the Florida NRS scene and the Texas NRS scene. With some talk about a money match going on the past few months, we have it officially locked in for Combo Breaker 2019.
