Hi, everyone! As some of you knew, we celebrated UMK3 20th anniversary in Bogotá (Colombia) with a big tournament on November 22nd. We had a blast (although I didn't enter neither of the tournaments). 32 players for each game made this event so much fun and even some players from different Colombian cities made the trip! I kind of regret not playing, but I was super busy, as I was the TO.

We captured top 8 for both tournaments and here are the videos :) (make sure you read the videos description so you recognize WFs, LFs & GFs) Also, there are 3 teasers at the beginning of the playlist (2 mini interviews) so if you want to go straight to the matches, go to video # 3.
The Top 8's for EU & NA in the ESL MKX Pro League are set for TODAY!! Europe is in Week #5 while North America is in Week #4. The Top 8 for Europe will begin at 20:30 CET (2:30pm EST/11:30 PST) while the action for North America begins at 8pm EST/5pm PST. As always, the action will be live ONLY on http://www.twitch.tv/netherrealm Check out the brackets for today's action below:
November 29, 2015 was a day that host Jamaica's Biggest E-sports Tournament - MASH DI BUTTON and it was a day full of down-to-the wire matches, crazy comebacks, solid performances, wall crawling and tantrum throwing celebration in Mortal Kombat X. 22 Kombatants from across the beautiful Island of Jamaica came to showcase what they got, take names and demolish anyone that stood in there way to victory. Check out the results below:
What a great event it was this past weekend. Great players attended from all over germany and the neatherlands. We had a lot of fun at Saturday with a 3 on 3 ger vs hol team battle where AT Nindo, Dio and AT Doctor beat RyuKazuya, Smascer and Nani and delivered some freedom to us if you know what i mean^^ The tournament this sunday was the most hype thing i have witnessed ever since the Red fight district. People were all hype and ready to get it on. Amazing players like Rey, WamZlay, BobaGrimes , MiguelDante and a few other guys tried to defend germany against the dutch epic skill. We witnessed a great top 8 with a lot of good and intense matches.

In the winners final we had D´Vorah master Rey vs Quan Chi Bulldozer AT Nindo where i stated to lose my voice for all the hype they delivered in this match. AT Nindo taking it convincingly with a patient and very intimdating Playstyle that made everyone fear his Quan. At the Grand Finals it came to a AT fight between AT Doctor out of the loser Brackets with his epic Tanya and AT Nindo running through the winner Brackets like kabal. But AT Doctor kept his patience and managed to reset the brackets that made everyone in the room go wild!!! AT Nindo wasnt done though!! He adapted and fought back. After a great performance by both players AT Nindo beat AT Doctor and took the victory convincingly.

Congratulations to @nindo for making first place,@The Doctor making Second place and @Rey taking third.
I hope everyone had a great holiday! We are here with results from Brutality held on November 21, 2015. Unfortunately we have found that the stream will not run and still allow the Arcade Legacy credit machine to operate normally. So until further notice, we will only be local recording and then uploading to YouTube after the fact. No big deal, though. We will still be providing great FGC entertainment! KI also could not run this past event due to lack of interest. Come on KI folks!
Our 9th FRIDAY FATAL FIGHTS took place on Friday and we had 14 people wanting to dethrone Boki. He got knocked into Losers but managed to fight his way back to grand finals, resetting the score and taking the weekly. Is there any way to stop Boki and his Lao?

I am most thankful for the AFK KOH mode.

What are you most thankful for?
Way late on this, completely swamped with work and life and it just slipped my mind. Anyway. The first revamped Michigan Ranbats took place a couple Sunday's ago. With it being on a Sunday instead of Saturday there was worry that people wouldn't show up but the tournaments got a good amount of entrants.

Top 3 Results:
  1. cR Footwurk (Ninjutsu Scorpion, Hellfire Scorpion)
  2. JWE Compbros (Spec Ops Cassie Cage, Covert Ops Sonya Blade)

10 weeks since we started doing a regular EU tournament on PC and we have arrived to the point where the player base for the event is around 100~120 players, what that means is we can comfortably host 16 player brackets and have the necessary players on the waiting list to cover for the usual no shows that happen. Overall I'm very pleased with how thing have been progressing up to this point and I'd like to thank each and every player that took part in the events so far.

Week 10 culminated in the first Mileena player to take the Champion title since we started the series, with @The 2nd Coming from winners facing off versus ErronLol from losers, the match ending in a 3-1 for The 2nd Coming in the first set of the Grand Final.

I'll be taking a month long break in December from streaming and hosting events so the EU WEEKLY LIVE series will return in January 2016, hopefully to the same eager crowd of players that have made all of this possible.To close things up I'd like to congratulate The 2nd Coming on his win and to bid all of you a farewell til next year. -RVB
Last week passed and so did the second edition in the NA WEEKLY LIVE tournament series. I gotta give it to Blowsmoke for being overly optimistic on getting a FULL 16 player bracket and guess what?... it actually happened, to my amazement. A lot of props go to the people that spread word of this and made it ,as far as I'm concerned, an exciting event.

I've got a long way to go until I establish a core group of players for the NA WEEKLY like I did with it's EU counterpart but that will happen with time, dedication and a lot of help from the NA PC community. Having new faces like @Tundra_Arctos join the tournament and showing off a very solid Grandmaster Sub Zero, while facing the likes of last weeks Champion @Kickbykick, made me see that the NA WEEKLY LIVE has a bright future ahead and I wil continue to work and improve it as much as I possibly can.

Changes will be made and some of these I will disclose in December when I will be taking a month long hiatus from streaming and hosting tournaments, hopefully I can do justice to all the credit I've been receiving from players that took place in the tournaments so far. One thing will remain a constant though... my shitty commentary!

In the end I'd like to congratulate Tundra on his well deserved win and to thank the rest of the players for attending the NA WEEKLY, see you all in 2016! -RVB

Hey guys, I just wanted to bring to light there will be an upcoming rule revision regarding section 2.15. Streaming and Recording of the ESL MKX Pro League rules.

The current Streaming and Recording rules are as follows:
  • Live streaming or recording of official ESL MKX Pro League matches is allowed and there is no restriction on the personal use of self-recorded match videos. Under certain circumstances, such as events which are live streamed on the official Twitch.tv/Netherrealm channel, players must obtain written permission for use of the material.
  • Players are not to stream their official matches during the Live broadcasts (Wednesday) on Twitch. This rule is subject to change.
  • Please keep in mind that streaming without a delay may allow your opponents to gain an advantage. Watching a live stream of your opponent is bad sportsmanship, but it is not cheating, so disputes of this nature will be disregarded.
Starting with the ESL MKX Pro League Season 2 Week #4 cup on 11/29/2015 there will be a new addition to the rules to reflect the following: During Sunday's cup if your opponent requests you turn off your stream during the match you must do so.

For all the latest updates about the ESL MKX Pro League, check out the website and follow the tournament serie's official Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Hello TYM. You may remember me as a very active member of the TYM forums and MK9 tournament scene. I wanted to let you know about a new fighting game that is on Steam Greenlight at the moment.

We really need your ‘YES’ vote on Steam Greenlight!

About two years ago, Storms made a TYM frontage announcement about 'Clash of the Monsters’, a game that I was beginning work on at that time. It had quite a reception on TYM, and a small Kickstarter for the game successfully funded!

Our September Open Series Champion DsV Kayy9 placed Top 8 this week, he put up a strong first showing on stream and fought well against SonicFox5000. Although the Open Series contestant ultimately went down 3-0, he took the first round of the first set from SonicFox5000 - while both players had but a sliver of health remaining - with an incredible clutch Instant Air Dive Kick.

ESL would like to put in the spotlight our Open Series contestant DsV Kayy9 this week. In this interview we go over his competitive history and see how he is handling the transition from the semi-pro Open Series Cups to the MKX Pro League. Read the full interview below:
