My partner in UltraChenTV James Chen and I are going to do a pre-Evolution 2015 super show going over the whole event and every game! We'll talk about Vegas, the event itself, and various goings-on. Then we'll start talking about the games, delving in pretty deeply into important storylines and players to watch for each one! For all the games but SF4, we'll bring on one or two Skype guests to help us out with this. @Hollywood DMS is gonna join us for MKX!

If you missed it last night, check the archive here http://www.twitch.tv/ultrachentv/v/7479539 MKX discussion starts at the 3 hour mark.

After a long day of enormous battles, and even matches we thought we'd never see, the Final 2 Kombatants came down to 2 very familiar faces in the ESL Realm. @SonicFox5000, and @YOMI REO, who during the ESL Season amassed some of the larger amount of the points of all the kombatants, battled for the First Place prize of $60,000 AND that amazing ESL MKX Championship Belt, and rising to the top like most weeks, SonicFox took the Grand Finals in a domination fashion. Even a switch to Bone Scraper Shinnok, which got him a win, wasn't enough to fully keep SonicFox's Kitana at bay. Congrats to SonicFox, your ESL MKX Pro League Season 1 Champion!! (See below image for full write up on the event, broken down by @huh!!)

Tonight saw the return of many familiar faces such as Ofidyan, Pnut, Greguu, and the Spradling brothers, along with street fighter players GG Onisan and GOL BoiToi doing much better in the brackets. It all came down to Pnut and Korey in Grand Finals. Korey's Summoner Quan Chi was more oppressive than usual, and took the Grand Finals 3-0. Thanks to all that came out and good luck to the Dallas players representing us at EVO!

Week 13 concludes as That MK Weekly saw it's most stacked tournament to date. With SOVA leveling up, wins are not as free as early on in the game. With who we consider the 5 MK gods of sova all in attendance (Sid The Haze, Mr Aquaman, YAMS, Gimpy, and Zappa), this was sure to be one not soon forgotten. If you are looking for the most competitive week in our history look no further, strap in, and enjoy the competition, blowups, upsets, nail biters, and savagery.

This will be the last week that we use a free tournament setting as we will be switching to a Ranbat style starting next week. Tournaments will now be $1 entry and over the course of 8 weeks, the $1 entries from all 8 tournaments will be in one large pot that will be given out to the top 3 of the Ranbat series. Points will be given out to Top 8 and will be displayed next week.

GGA N1k0lasss went all mystic Ermac and it payed off with a tournament win for him last night. He ended up facing GGA Dizzy in what would be our hypest winners finals match yet! However poor Nikos was sent to losers with that match. The Grecian Delight then fought his way through losers and fought Dizzy again in grand finals and reset him and then ended up winning again after the reset. All matches with Dizzy and Nikos went to the last round! You guys have got to check out how powerful Ermac's jump attacks are. Some people say Ermac is 17th best but who are we to disagree. We like to let 17th best characters rock here at GGA.

Here are the Top 8:
1st @GGA N1k0lasss Mystic Ermac. 6 pts.
2nd @GGA Dizzy Thunder God Raiden. 5 pts.
3rd @Jeffrey Wolf War God Kotal Kahn. 4 pts. (His 2nd week out and his 2nd top 8)
4th @GGA Fill Pops War God Kotal Kahn. 3 pts.
5th @D-Que Beats Military...

Tuesday night in Atlanta and that means its time for yet another Atlanta Kombat Arena. This week saw 26 competitors enter the arena for kombat at Yomi Gaming including all the familiar faces as well as some surprise guests. The current champ DJT decided to switch it up this week by primarily using pumped up Jax as his character of choice. DMS made a surprise visit to Yomi to get some quick EVO training in. ATL Batman (known now as DOJO Batman) also made a return to show off his skills in Mortal Kombat X.

"Season 1 of the ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League is concluding very soon, with the grand champion being crowned on July 11th live from our studio in Burbank, California. What a journey it’s been with so many players not only proving their dominance as tournament veterans, but also many newcomers that have made their mark with MKX as their first competitive Fighting Game.

This week at The Break we had 16 people enter. Although there was a lack of the Monster Child Known as Buupiter we had 2 guests this week. The Magician And Take$$$ Both Came to visit from VA. Two brothers to take the place of Lance and Jupiter. Both with a younger brother who is taller than the older. Hmmmmmmm. Are they one in the same? We also had the appearance of KT Smith who somehow keeps escaping Homeboy Tysons Basement.

MONTREAL MAYHEM BI-WEEKLY #5 We have a new king... MTL Hayatei wins!!!

Hey Everyone! Welcome to another installment of our Montreal Mayhem series!! This weekend had the smallest turnout that we have had so far, with just 7 entrants. This is not due to a lack of interest in the game or anything along those lines. Comic con was just sharing the same weekend as our Bi-Weekly, so we lost some entrants this week to that.

In light of this, we decided to run a round robin instead of doing a bracket. For those of you who are unaware of how this works, let me explain. We have all 7 people play each other. Each match is reported until everyone has played everyone. Winner has the best record or goes undefeated. Results go in order of records. In the situation of a tie of scores, one player will rank over the other based on how their match against each other was, and even if this is not enough ( 3 way ties), rankings are based on...

Hi guys! I jokingly made a Twitter post to @Insuperable and @STB Shujinkydink about a Quan Chi Character Gauntlet 3v3 at EVO. Then I realized that would actually be a pretty sick idea and great fun for the community.

Basically, people could challenge us to a 3v3, we would all use Quan Chi but the layout would be as follows:

Ketchup: Sorceror
Shujinkidink: Summoner
Insuperable: Warlock

There is evidentially a ton of people going to EVO this year, if the time allows for it, why not turn this into a real thing?

York Street Battles (YSB) is the monthly fighting game tournament run in Sydney, Australia at Level 2, 99 York St Sydney.

Although we were missing heaps of people we still managed to run a tournament of 15 with a couple of first timers in the mix. And speaking of first timers, big BIG thank you to Wayne and Seto for coming along and joining in. Hope you guys had a good time and hope you make this a reoccurring thing. To everyone else on the fence about coming out to a YSB, I urge you now more than ever to make the decision to come out AT LEAST ONCE. You don't even have to play in the tournament if you feel it's a bit too much. Plenty of set ups and casuals happening so you can just enjoy that. I know it in my mind and heart that you will most definitely enjoy what we have to offer. Top 8 can be found below:
