    At first MKXL was only going to be at Hypespotting as a side tournament, but in the last few weeks a lot of progress has been made. Not only is MKXL returning to Glasgow, Scotland for its second year in the main lineup of games but it also has been generously given a $5,000 (roughly £4114) pot bonus too which will be split between the top 8!


    Hypespotting VI will be taking place on the 15th-16th of April and will be back at Hilton Glasgow, 1 William Street, Glasgow, G3 8HT. To sign up for this tournament you can enter at the link below, but be quick because the entry cap is set at 64 for now!


    Tournament entry is £20 and £10 more for each game you choose to enter.
    Format is double elimination and Best of 5 all the way.
    The event will take place over two days, pools will be on Saturday starting at 12pm and top 8 will be on Sunday starting at 1pm.
    Some of the pools (and top 8 I would think) will also be streamed on http://www.twitch.tv/versusscotland

    See further rules here: http://www.hypespotting.co.uk/rules/
    Note: Due to legal reasons only those 18+ can enter.

      Great stuff. Hope mantis is going.
    3. Youphemism
      Sounds like it so far! It's unfortunate to see the age limit back but not too many if any are under 18 now so there should be a decent turnout this time :)

      Stream Link?

      And are the condiment brothers casting?
    6. Youphemism
      Stream link? There's a month to go until the event lol. Details will be updated as they come out. As for Ketchup & Mustard ask them :p because I don't know myself

      pretty sure big events have these things planed months in advance.. if they are only now with a month to go trying to work out a stream then that doesn't bode well : (

      Congrats, European scene definitely deserves this. Hope this entices Tekken Master to come out.

      did forever king and Honeybee ever got paid?

      5000 US Dollars. Admittedly I don't know how well that converts to middle eastern currencies but thanks to Brexit there's barely any difference between GBP and USD now anyway.

      Not that I've seen, usually they're up maybe a couple of weeks before. Plus this MKX tournament is something that was more recently organized, it bodes fine. With it being organized so late there may not be a stream but once we know more I'll update with the details.
    16. Youphemism
      I think you're confusing this with something else...

      There is a chance we might join. Me and @ROG Mike. We could fly in on Saturday morning. But we may need a place to crash from Saturday through Sunday. Perhaps an "afterparty" somewhere ?

      We would then visit my pal in New Castle after the tournament ends. We may have flight on Tuesday - and that is only option.

      The announcement that it's actually not a side tournament came too late. I probably won't attend this. Good luck to everyone who is! :)
    19. Youphemism
      Saturday morning will be when the tournament starts though, you mean early early morning? Unfortunately I'm a train's ride away from Glasgow so I can't put you up, would if I could :/
      Oh so Uncle Taco needs it to be a main game, I see how it is :DOGE Nah I understand, it is a shame about the late announcement :p

      We could land in Glasgow at 8:50 AM. Considering the fact that we wont have any additional bags we should be able to proceed as fast as we can from the Airport to to venue.

      I dont know though how long will take to get from point A to point B.

      We may need a place crash from Saturday to Sunday.
    23. Youphemism
      Hmm that might be cutting it a bit close, not sure when pools are starting yet but it'll be updated here when the schedule is announced.

      If we were to go there we need to have confirmed info, since we have like a day or two left to book the flights at a still okay-ish price.

      We don't intend to stay long, probably flight-tournament-flight.
