UPDATE: I was wrong. Thanks to some feedback from our friends at MKServer, it seems only some countries have access to it: "Only in Norway, Philippines and United Arab Emirates for now according to @papaBear85" - https://twitter.com/MKServer/status/591245980642738176

Yes, that is correct. Android users can now download and play the Mortal Kombat X mobile app to unlock costumes exclusive to the mobile app and use them on the console version. Not only this, but you can now play Mortal Kombat X on the go!

However, if you did that is what this playlist

Without a good venue, SoCal has been at a bit of a tournament standstill. Fortunately, we were able to bring some of our top players together for one of our first real MKX tournaments! (Goro Night Fights 1.0 happened, but we didn't make a results thread. Youtube playlist for that is here. )

Knocking down Ferra Torr in Vicious or Ruthless knocks Ferra off of Torr's back, but Ferra is required to use his armored moves. This explains the weirdness of him being able to do wakeup armor:

A homage to the first Mortal Kombat, no doubt. This week in the Living Towers, there is a Mortal Kombat 1 tower featuring all the MK1 characters in MKX, komplete with a mirror match & even a special round of TEST YOUR MIGHT. And no Mortal Kombat 1 tower would be complete without a secret Reptile fight!

Thanks to Canada's K-Frog, players of MKX are now aware that Ermac's Spectral variation currently has a glitch where he builds a bar of meter instantaneously when using a special move while levitating.

In the following video, MK Tom Brady breaks down the various ways this can be used with ease -- and why this should be banned from tournaments and competitive play of any kind until the issue is fixed.

MKX Launch Tournament!!! 4/17/2015

This was our first MKX tournament and we went ham! This was hosted by Games n Go at Rosedale Mall and had 16 entrants. A lot of the regular mk9 crew showed up for this as well as some shiny new faces. We're all very excited to have a new game and new competition.

After the twitter salt had settled, one of the 376 online participants stood victorious, and I don't think anyone was surprised to see that it was none other than @SonicFox5000.

Now being 2 for 2 in ESL hosted tournaments, they may as well set up a direct debit to his account. Congratulations @SonicFox5000, keep bringing the salt and winning tournaments "without fundamentals".

2nd @Kitana Prime
Joint 3rd @Zyphox & @Perfect Legend

In this video i try to showcase the maximum amount of damage from every combo starter, launcher and variation Raiden has. Not all combos are going to be useful as i was attempting max damage from that particular launcher and not easiest bnb into vortex. Some combos may have slight room for improvement, but most are at the maximum damage for their particular starter.

If you're receiving an error code (PSN version) for Mortal Kombat X with the following: (CE-34878-0), then you're going to want to follow the steps below in order to bypass it "temporarily". It happened to me a few days ago as well as a few others on TYM and is quite annoying, considering that if you don't do the following process you literally cannot play Mortal Kombat X.

@michaelangelo announced today on Facebook that he will be attending the Atlanta Kombat Weekly this coming Tuesday for Mortal Kombat X. Michaelangelo is a well-known Mortal Kombat 9 players with multiple tournament standings and wins over the years. Although, his activity has dropped off for Injustice, it'll be very interesting to see what he has to offer, or more so, what character he'll be picking

With MKX's release this week, a lot of scenes are rallying their troops in order to add numbers to their locals or bring together old friends. One of those scenes is based around Las Vegas -- and at long last, the Nevada scene has come out of relative seclusion to broadcast their weeklies to the world.

This week marks the first edition of the Sin City Showdown to feature Mortal Kombat X -- and should provide a good glimpse of players like brothers Malik and Denzell Terry as they begin their quest for a new string of tournament placings.
