If you bought an Xbone way back in 2013, you probably owned Killer Instinct. One of the first exclusives for the new consoles, it's held a place in the FGC with a passionate community keeping the game alive to this day. Thunder is that franchise's Native American representative of the cast, a big guy who hits stuff with axes.
*UPDATE: This seems to have been addressed with the latest update to the game. If you are on current patch and having issues, fix your internet
Since the newest patch to hit Mk11 has come out users have been taking to twitter and other platforms stating they are having
issues with the netcode in its current state..but NRS begs to differ..
According the an r/mortalkombat reddit post Nrs staff user WB_Will stated that everything is "running normally"
So you know that icon for something called "The Kombat League" that pops up whenever you go to play MK11 online? The countdown timer had us set to find out what that was today, but it appears to have been reset to go live "In 7 Days".
MK11's Blocking OS
This OS will out right beat or counter your opponent's defensive options in one form or another. The input itself is fairly simple; + whatever special or command normal you want to come out in a neutral state, I'll explain the reason later. This OS covers 4 options:

Here is the video that explains this in greater detail:
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.
