Sup guys! I come to leave a compilation of ideas kung lao in all modes. Many other non-viable and viable ideas as they can find, such as: connect 3 teleport in combos, 3,4 or 5 interactions in one combo and using original strings to change the routine combos.

If you have more ideas does not hesitate to tell me. Check out the video below:

What an amazing tournament! This guy @D-Que Beats was on a tear last for last Thursdays GBS! He was unstoppable! He was never sent to losers. He joins the illustrious company of @GGA pimpimjim, @GGA N1k0lasss, and @GGA Dizzy. D-Que's win was so impressive he even got props from his rival Empr Twisted!

ESL recently spoke to @Milkman aka EVB Milky Situation about MKX & the ESL MKX Pro League!! Check it out below:

One contestant we’d like to spotlight is Milky Situation. He made some noise at EVO placing Top 8 with Reptile - which was considered one of the weaker characters in the game at the time - and showed the world that you can go very far with dedication and hard training. One key match for him happened during the round of 16 of the Pre-season Cup #2 between Milky Situation and Predaatorrr where the victor would break into the Top 8. ESL spoke with Milky Situation to get to know him a little more and he expanded on the key match.

If you are one of the few players reading this thread that know about Spectral's potential and how it can be any where possibly from low mid tier to mid tier, or on par (or BETTER) than Master of Souls for certain match ups, then this thread is really not for you. This thread is more for all the players saying Spectral is the worst variation in the game without understanding some of the benefits the Spectral variation offers Ermac. Whether you're too lazy to dive into the lab to see what Spectral is really about, or just someone who doesn't have the time or interest to fully explore so you go with the popular opinion, then this thread will be very informative for what you need to know about Spectral Ermac and the benefits it gives.

Some of the very common misconceptions is many players believe Spectral only gives Ermac the ability to hover and turtle by holding back + up. While this is true, and can be rather effective in a select few match ups, this is NOT what the variation is fully about, and there's a lot more to Spectral than what meets the eye. Below are some of the tools and attributes Ermac gains in Spectral.

I've learned a lot about success in the last 10 years in this community. Here's some backstory about my competitive history that you may or may not have known to start off this thread.

To kick things off, tournaments for multiple games, including Mortal Kombat X, are set to begin this week at Paris Games Weekly in Paris, France. For additional details on this news, check out IGN here as well as Melty.fr for other Mortal Kombat X details.

Well here we are ladies and gentlemen, another week and another EU WEEKLY LIVE tournament concluded. The biggest surprises of the tournament were Classy Cat getting eliminated in the Pools, Raz's comeback vs Erronlol and Immorta1 narrowly losing vs Kestorr. St9rm, as usual, steam rolled everyone with his Shirai Ryu Takeda, making this the second week in a row where he won the title of EU WEEKLY champion!

The event still has a few creases to iron out but overall we had a very good time playing and hopefully the next event on November 1st will be even better. Cheers to everyone that participated in the only PC weekly tournament around and congratulations to St9rm for defending his title, see you all next week!

Going into this week many of the area were still entranced by what transpired on saturday. Was the fall of gods at hand? Gimpy, Sid, upset to the depths of 7th and 5th. Newcomers outshining and upsetting them in the form of ZB Villianous and Indecisive. What was going to happen just 5 days later? Well we have our answers! Big names were missing this week as Yams was bodied by work and ZB Villianous was too busy doing a Head and Shoulders commercial. No Blackula as well who has been mr consistent 5th-3rd. This week we saw Gimpy finally get a little bit of his strut back by going all around the character select screen and seeing success with new characters and breaking out oldies. Sid swung right back into it with wins over Indecisive who has been hot and Gimpy (epic). Indecisive kept hit hot streak alive with his first win over Zappa but found himself out quickly after with losses to Sid and Gimp. Mr Aqua goes to grand finals with Blood God for the 3rd straight tournament losing the previous two, but saw victory today with tight wins over sid the haze. Without further ado, results and videos!

This was a very humbling experience. This was my first offline/local that I put together and hosted myself. I was expecting maybe 10-12 people to show up and had 31 people show to compete in Mortal Kombat. Thank you to everybody that made it out, especially those that drove hours and hours (We had a crew from Dallas which is about 4-5 drive!?!?!?!?!?!?). Anyways, enough of my ranting and on to the tournament rankings.
