Hey guys! Now EVO is done and dusted, I thought id put together a guide for those looking into playing Sorcerer a little more! This isn't necessarily a guide on everything you should do, it's more of a video compiling some of the tech that I use that everyone should incorporate into their game in my opinion.

Sorcerer is lethal. Although he suffers the same issues as Summoner when he's knocked down, he receives a different bag of rewards when he lands the all important hit, depending on the type of player you are. Feel free to give it a look, share he love if you like what you see.

Cheers! - Ketchup

When will Max's reign of terror end? Shinnok (Paulo pls) has won 3 weeks in a row. Now I could be reasonable and think that @GGA N1k0lasss & @GGA Dizzy are doing the post evo try new character thing and it is totally fine that @GGA Max is winning so much... but I'm not going to. I place the blame firmly on Shinnok's up fireball. Oh and I also want to congratulate @GGA Fill Pops on his best tournament ever with 2nd place! Fill has gone all the way from jobber (early in season 1) to a high card! Keep up the good work and stay thirsty Fill.

Without further ado, here are the Top 8 from last night's GBS:

Be sure to watch Possessed guide as well because some things I skimmed over because they apply to all of Kenshi so I didnt want to repeat myself. Every variation guide I try to bring up more each video that applies to him universally

Here's my Kenjutsu Video Guide. Enjoy!

With Mortal Kombat X dropping all around the globe, the hunger to triumph spread far and wide. One such nation to be touched by this determination is West Africa, where the citizens of Ghana gathered together to battle it out in an event called GBR 2015, or Gamer's Republic Brawl. With a 30-man bracket at the ready, players brought unique battle strategies to the table, and eventually only one stood triumphant - VU mvp_ryon, who demonstrated great mastery over Liu Kang's Dragon Fire variation!

We congratulate him for the victory and would like to thank @LavaG for bringing us this update, along with all possible footage from GBR 2015 so that we can catch up on the excitement!

Several days ago, it was announced that NRS is giving the VSFighting 5 tourney in Birmingham, England a pot bonus of £6200 will is about equal to $10,000. Check out the announcement below, made by Electronic Dojo, who is running the event:

Ok so I know this write up is long overdue and I'll explain why. Uploading from PS4 is a fucking mess. Some games are missing (including finals FOR SOME FUCKING REASON). Please let me know which and I'll try to find them and reupload. I just can't be bothered to try to make this work anymore before actually posting this thread. I've spent literally days uploading from ps4 WHICH IS SO SLOW (I have bought a USB stick now though so next time I'll export the videos to my PC and try if it works out better. One can only hope) ANYWAYS ENOUGH COMPLAINING

@rubmytaco took this months EK convincingly. Brackets can be found here: http://challonge.com/EuroKombat2

1st place: @rubmytaco
2nd place: @FireBreather
3rd place: @Geoffmeister (if that's the correct tag lol)

Kenshi master, Pig of the Hut is here to break down the very character he is known for. Ever since Mortal Kombat 9, Pig of the Hut has been very well known for his high level Kenshi and he continues this legacy in Mortal Kombat X. With that being said, below is a character breakdown video for the "POSSESSED" variation of Kenshi.

In the below 'table of contents' Pig lists what all he goes over in this breakdown: from strengths to weaknesses to various strategies... it has it all!

Post Evolution 2015 Digit has had some time to recollect and research more into match-ups. It definitely showed when facing Reptile in Grand Finals this month. After his loss to Milky Situation, he has studied up well enough to body any Reptiles in his way. Unfortunately, there was no stream or archive of the 40 man tournament. However, Digit's performance can be described in one word, "dominant."

In between the ESL championship that took place the weekend before EVO, and then EVO, the guys are EpicGP had a large gathering for Mortal Kombat X. Their tournament consisted of many local players as usual, but the icing on the cake are all of the international players that also competed.

International players including PND Ketchup, PND Mustard, EG Nivek, CheapEddie, Af0xyGrampa and Madzin competed against EpicGP. That match footage can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/user/EpicGP/videos

First, I’d like to apologize as I realize this entire post is about 3+ months too late. I’d honestly intended to make and finish it just prior to MKX’s release as I figured nobody would care afterward...but it didn't work otu that way, so I hope you will all indulge my silly interest in a game which at this point is deader than disco :)

People of Test Your Might, it is my great pleasure to present to you all Injustice: A Farewell:

We had a couple problems with sign ups, but that will definitely not happen again. Thankfully the stream is almost 100% operational. Still having some audio issues to iron out, but now that things are almost perfect the set up for future Brutality events will not be nearly as difficult. Looking forward to that!

Let's all work hard to get more people to attend the event in August! Scroll to the bottom for the date of Brutality - August 2015.

Shoutouts to: Dalton, Will, Brendon, Quentin, Eric, Johnny, Chase, and anyone else I forgot for helping out and bringing equipment to the event.

After over a year since our last show, the original podcast of TYM returns! Only this time with a controversial new host. We talk about the return of Mortal Kombat to the tournament scene and give our opinions of the new game. In depth coverage of MKX's first EVO with some well deserved props going out to many players. A surprise guest segment with 9th place finisher Wound Cowboy. Callouts, blowups, awkwardness, and of course our trademark randomness on this special return edition of KTP. Enjoy and please leave a comment telling us what you think!

Hey everyone!! it's only 1 week since evo, 2 since esl finals and 3 since mkx european finals!!
i still can't believe that in less than 20 days i went across Europe and the whole WORLD!!

Let's start from the top..mkx european finals..
Great event, fun time with friends-couples but disappointing performance.. clearly wasn't my day at all for some reason..some players said that there was lag on the monitors but i really didnt care at all.
The pool before casuals was so funny!! Shoutouts to @st9rm ,Aixy and all the other playes that didnt come to america!! It was the time to go again to USA,not for 3, but for 14 days!!

I want to thank esl, @Clutch8 and all the esl guys and girls that gave me the opportunity to be there once again! By the way... i said that the money mattered to me because of the situation in Greece and Clutch just mentioned it,so there wasnt any reason anyone to "attack" him. Just to be clear!

Here's somewhat of a recap of the past couple weeks, typed on the phone so sorta gave up tagging:

So it began by getting a flight with @PND Ketchup and @PND Mustard from London Heathrow. Thanks to Krystal from ESL (my american guardian angel) we were allowed to fly in economy plus, or as Ketchup says 'were economy plus! You know we're moving up in the world because that puts us slightly above scum!'

11 hours with no inflight audio and 2 intense games of sudoku scattered inbetween, we arrive in LA, where by sheer chance we get the same super shuttle driver I got for the fans choice (a rather Niko Bellic type). Anyhow, we arrive at the safari inn, where perfect legend appeared to have arrived just moments before. The rest of that night involved us getting settled in, gradually seeing the other players arrive, watching sonic fox playing Nidhogg with his brother, and his display of the brokenness of predator.

Day 2, the day of all the theatrics, recording those intro videos for ESL finals. Massive props to the shaolin brother Carl, 'thisssssss, is godlike!' As well as the 'Madzin...? I will break him...' from Lar. Many laughs were had that day.

I decided to do something a little bit different this time around. This experience deserved a face-to-face thank you :) Please bare with me. This was done in one take, and I don't normally do things like this! Not to mention I am coming off of a cold.

One thing I forgot to mention was how honored I was to commentate alongside Ketchup at the EGP tournament. Commentating is something I really want to pursue, and I have been getting great feedback! I cant thank you enough for the kind words and support. One day I'll be commentating professionally. I can feel it :) Check out the video below:

Well GBS has another back to back winner now, GGA Max. Did Max win because of his character or his skill? Please chime in, in the comments. He joins Dizzy and Nikolass as the other 2 with back to back wins.

Last night's theme was 100%. Our GBS has been around for 14 weeks and there are still players that have a 100% win rate over other players. Unfortunately some 100% streaks were lost last night. GGA Dizz 's brand new Cassie lost to Soonk, whom he had always beat previously. Also soonk made it to grand finals against Max. Max had a 100% win rate against Soonk, but Soonk's Predator was able to reset the bracket ruining Max's win streak. Also congrats to SinSlasher Mac. He has been a new guy coming out for MKX. Last season he was a jobber/low card player but last night he was able to break into mid card status by making 4th place! Keep up the leveling up.
