    The Major League Gaming Winter Championship that will hold the anticipated Mortal Kombat 9 tournament will offer $16,700 in pool prizes. As it was announced very recently, this will turn a lot of heads and even maybe see a return of some players from a previous PDP tournamant? We shall see, but more than likely we will be seeing many top players running for this money in Columbus, Ohio on March 23-25. Prizes from 1st to 8th are 1. $6,000 2. $3,600 3. $2,400 4. $1,600 5th/6th $1,000 7th/8th $550.

  3. After seeing these numbers, how could anyone serious about this game choose Final Round over MLG? That's as big a prize pot as we will see for this game, especially for the players who have stuck with this game this long.

    Cibernetico, It's NorCal Regionals that conflicts with MLG, Not Final Round.

    (And no offense to NCR or NorCal Players, but that's a huge difference - Final Round conflicting would've sucked)

  10. Really? I've heard that it's actually Final Round that is conflicting with this due to traveling expenses for some of those players. I've heard 16 Bit say that it could possibly be a problem for him to attend MLG right after Final Round.

    Cibernetico, yes Final Round - as a big tourney - is competing for travel funds. But It's not on the same date as MLG, so it IS possible to go to both.

    By contrast, NCR is on the same date.

    Hopefully this gets a good turnout. I assume it will be mostly mid west and NE players since it's in Ohio. So basically pay day for REO and CD jr

    Oh! My! God! I don't believe this. I don't care what game you play, this money is crazy!!!! I see so many players dropping their mains for kitana, raiden, kung lao, kabal, jax, and mileena. lol


    Gambling at its finest. And the way this is paying out those tournaments are conflicting with MLG

    Are you not forgetting the most dominant MK region, Jugg?

    The midwest, including Perfect Legend from what I have heard, will be present too.

    i have a feeling PL is gonna show everybody including National Fight game rankings just who PerfectLegend is. I'm not saying he's gonna win but top 3 i think so.

    That's a lot of money. And expect same or higher payouts if you keep your community alive, so let's everyone make a major effort to bring some hype over the game.

    I'm not even in the US but you can bet that I'll be following the stream. I'm sensing there will be some crazy competition, which is really good IMO.
  23. PL won't show up....he is scared of REO and CDjr....he doesn't want to get bodied.

    why would he be scared of REO did you not see him body REO at EVO. lol. (he may be scared of cdjr though, but who wouldn't be that dude is nasty) we'll just have to wait till this tourney to see if PL has slipped any. Only according to APEX it didn't look like it.

    Looking at PL's recent twitter, it seems he JUST got wind of the pot for this tournament. I think it's fair to say he will be there. Going to be hype!
