For those who don't know, the Dallas/Fort Worth scene holds two tournaments every week, EGL and Versus Gameplay. VGP has had a few rough weeks with a lack of participants, but this week the scene was out in full force. Many of the DFW regulars were there, but it came down to JW and GnarlyGatoAlex in GFs. JW, who has consistently placed top 3 at all VGPs he has attended, went up against GnarlyGatoAlex who was in winners. At first Alex picked Sun God Kotal, and lost to JW in a close set 3-2. Alex then switched to Liu Kang, winning one match and losing two. After some prompting from the crowd(me) Alex finally switched to War God Kotal and ended up taking the last set 3-2. Congrats to all the placers and make sure to support the DFW scene!

Tonight would not be complete without the conclusion of the Mortal Kombat X finals at East Coast Throwdown 2015 in Morristown, New Jersey. With top 8 monsters including SonicFox, REO, Saltface, the Terry Brothers (MIT & DJT), Slayer, Forever King and Jupiter - let's just say we had a very entertaining and hype top 8 both character-wise and player-wise.

Who was ready?

With East Coast Throwdown drawing all of the attention this weekend in Morristown, New Jersey the DC Universe fighting game by NetherRealm Studios has concluded. The top four results for this event may not come to you by surprise as the area's best players who are still playing the game showed their dominance yet again.

We love our games but we're in love with our Mortal Kombat X. But, how well is Mortal Kombat X treating Warner Bros. and those under the WB umbrella? According to VentureBeat.com, everyone's doing quite well. In recent publisher standings through the Month of May 2015, Warner Bros has grabbed its fair share of the $50 billion dollar chunk of the market. Keep in mind that this doesn't even include the FREE mobile games that NetherRealm Studios has developed for Mortal Kombat X and the

As much as this may come as a shock, KoreyTheDragon has once again won an Epic MKX weekly. A lot of familiar faces were participating tonight, including Ofidyan, GnarlyGatoAlex, Greguu, and we even witnessed the return of the new father IceColdEdge. Perhaps the biggest story of the night was KH Royale showing up, who happened to be in town. There were lots of upsets in this weeks bracket, but it came down to KH Royale and KoreyTheDragon. Korey took a commanding 2-0 lead only for Royale to come back and beat him 3-2 to reset the bracket! However, Korey was not phased and proceeded to win the final set 3-1. Will anyone be able to stop Korey's streak?

Yesterday the Virtual Dojo Vienna hosted the first GGDOF featuring Mortal Kombat X
Usually this is an Ultra Street Fighter IV + SF Third Strike Event, but since MK X got so popular, it attracted alot of the former Street Fighter players.
With 10 participants playing MK X, this was a milestone for the Dojo and will now continue on a weekly basis!

The Grand Finals were actually a Run back of the Kombat Cup Finals at the Area52 in Vienna, where Leinad faced st9rm in a close set.

This week's Versus Kombat Series felt a little different from the others. Although we go at each others' neck time and time again, our locals sensed there was a immediate notion to defend, as we welcomed an invasion of sorts. Five players taking the SIX HOUR DRIVE from Jacksonville and another 2 representing Tampa's Gamers On The Edge weekly, came down to test their talents among the self-proclaimed (and lbsh, it's true) best region of Florida - the south.

First off, thanks to the out of towners who came down to just us at a LOCAL. It means everything to us, hope you guys had an awesome time. After an early loss in Round 2 to Whiteboi, Yung Bacon's Shinnok crept into our Top 8, taking out multi-time Top 8 placers on his way. He would fall to KP, a match where fans prevail over ground sparks, but KP and the rest of Versus learned to RESPECT THE SCOOP (Seriously, Shinnok's Bone Scoop range is super dumb!). Down 2 placed as well, getting up to the top 8 before falling to Vendetta's patient play which turned into a steamroll when Down 2 seemingly lost focus and got antsy towards the end. Both scenes represented nicely, but ultimately fail at taking our crown. Granted it was 7 against the rest of us lol we still held it down :p

It has been almost a month since the Yomi Gaming team attended Chicago's new
major FGC event, Combo Breaker.

If you are looking for the chance to reminisce, you can relive the Combo Breaker experience from the
perspective of the Yomi team through the video below.

We appreciate being able to take part in such an exciting event and can't wait for next time.

Over a week ago, Denzell Terry, the blood brother of Malik Terry, not only laid waste to his opponents at Midwest Championships, but he also seized Yomi Gaming's throne from the grasp of his teammates. Now that The Commonwealth, Virginia's new FGC major event, has come to pass, the Yomi crew has reconvened in preparation for East Coast Throwdown, scheduled for this weekend.

A series of surprising twists took place in this week's bracket.

As many are aware, TestYourMight.com is based out of the United States, therefore we're usually most knowledgeable or informative with this respective events. However, we do our best to reach out and "cater" to cover other countries and share their skills with the rest of the world. Over time we've come to learn about the players that Moscow, Russia have to offer and the skill they bring.

They recently went through a gauntlet of the area's

Sorry about the lack of article last week. I was in VA on Vacation. This week we had another 21 people enter the Mortal Kombat tournament. And it was a stacked Tournament Indeed

Notable Mentions:
It was KDZ's Birthday. We had Cake and Lots of fun. Happy Birthday KDZ
Crazy Dominican Made his first ever appearance at the Break. And was able to make second using a mixture of Kitana and Tayna.
Indecisive Returned from his Trip to VA only to not enter cause hes a scrub
Niredina was busy collecting the lost souls of the people defeated from TCW and Not SCR to power himself up.
Jrosa Returns with a new main this week
Most of the matches were streamed and recorded. Although there was an issue at the end of the tournament when the power was cut by mistake shutting down the stream. So most of Grand Finals was not recorded.
