    Ever since Kombat Cup: The Runback I've been wondering if there will be any more tourneys for MKXL in the future (online or offline)

    In aware of KIT2018 having MKXL but that's the only tourney I know of.

    There are more online tournies for MKX for Europe for the ESL. I myself got invitations for a couple of those straight to my PS4, and it turns out that there are indeed more to come. I'm sure it's the same case for the US as well.

    I don't know if I'd say MK11's around the corner. Probably won't even get any confirmation or announcement of NRS's next game till Summer next year with a release Spring the following year.

    Still plenty of time to play and host some MKXL tournaments. I personally don't, but I know plenty would still like to participate and watch some MKX tourneys.

    nrs games go out of fashion in 2 years usually, so mk11 is still a year and a half or so away.
    they lied through their teeth that they'll keep supporting mkx but I'm seeing no evidence of it after 8 months.

    That's true, however, they have the habit to release their game, like, 2 years after the newly released game. I'd say 2 years are quite close with each other.

    I'd love to see and participate to the MKX tourneys, but problem is INJ2 and other FGs. Other FGs, such as GGXrd Rev, T7, etc were released as well.

    If people wanna play and tournies are still talking place for the game, then the game hasn't been gone out of fashion yet. Dev support/publisher investment from NRS/WB isn't the sole factor for being alive or not.

    I think that 2 year lifespan ends with mkxl coz its still a crazy and mad game. Hosting tournaments like the kombat kup runback will make it like ssfiv is to sfv. Unless mk11 is going to be as crazy as s***.

    It has gone out of fashion and now injustice 2 is in fashion, much like injustice 1 went out of fashion when mkx came out.

    If all people ever do is ask, no. We owe Aquaman huge for putting the runback together.

    And that's because? Oh wait, there is no reason why.

    MK9 had tournies after IJ1 came out, both in 2013 and 2014, in fact MK9's side tourney at EVO was the most watched out of all side tournies of EVO. IJ1 had barely any known tournies as far as I know and even those were exist. MKX had several big tournies after IJ2 came including at Viennality and the Kombat Cup Runback, and we still get ESL tournies and now we got the Until the Death tourney in France in December. That's a reason why it is not out of fashion.

    The only thing that is out of fashion is the old saying of "NRS games ends after only 2 years". That saying is the only thing that is officially dead. 4 yeas is much more likely to be true now, not 2 years.

    The reason is that the hype train moves onto the next game. There are always a few smaller events afterwards but nobody plays injustice 1 or mk9 anymore.

    If MK9 was the most watched side tourney out of all the rest at EVO 2014, way after IJ1 was out and less then a year before MKX, how there is was no hype for that game even at that period? It was still hyped. Also, MKX got huge reactions and hype at Viennality, and we got the Runback simply because of fan support and love of the game, and we still got more to come, months after IJ2 is out. None of that could've happen if there was no hype.

    And as for MK9 and IJ1 in this particular current period, this thing happens with any fighting game franchise. MK9 and IJ1 got their sequels in both MKX and IJ2, just like SF4 and MVC3 got their sequels in SF5 and MVCI, of course there are not gonna be any tournies for MK9, IJ1, SF4 or MVC3 now, but it's no longer a 2 year period for NRS games which is by the game, it is now 4 years which is by the franchise itself. Until MK11 comes out, MKX till still get tournies, just like with IJ2 until IJ3 comes out.

    tldr you want to believe that games don't die once the new game comes out.
    They do.
    Welcome to the nrs game scene.

    I gave you the history of the same scene you talk about, and it shows that the games, and especially nowadays, don't die by the minute the new game comes out. A game's life is a lot more then just a couple of components, but you wanna ignore those facts, not my fault.

    Welcome to the NRS fighting game scene, and what truly happens there.

    I get a notification on my PS4 menu occasionally about something called "Community Cup". It was the 55th one last time, apparently.

    It's an ESL free-entry tourney, it's a good place to meet good players online an hone your skills.

    It's been like this lately as ESL got a contract with Sony (dunno about Microsoft and Nintendo) to announce stuff like this to broaden their online tournies.

    Like Roy said, you can play there for free and hone your skills.
