Test Your Might

Home of competitive Mortal Kombat & Injustice: Gods Among Us

TONIGHT is definitely a time where you're going to want to be home to watch some exciting Mortal Kombat X matches as the current best Mortal Kombat X player, along with folks that are biting his ankles, will be right there to capitalize on any mistake he makes. Players will be competing for $100,000 in this Mortal Kombat X Championship; Chasing the Cup on The CW. The Finale begins at 8pm EST/5pm PST!!

Below is a press release that NetherRealm Studios recently sent out, plus a video to give you a teaser look at what we can expect on Monday:
Considering there are hundreds and sometimes thousands of competitors that will register for a single fighting game and it always comes down to the golden 8 (8 players to showcase their talent on stream), if you're one of these players that don't make it, you may wonder why? Achieving such results cannot be easy and it is never guaranteed. Every single players came to give their best and they want to be # 1. So, how do I get Top 8? Why do I never get Top 8? Well, may this video give you some insight on the things you may be doing right and the things you may be doing wrong.

Gootecks and Mike Ross, who are well-known in the Street Fighter world, made an awesome video. In this video
ESPN has interviewed the following top players as they will compete in the Chasing the Cup that goes hand-in-hand with ESL's $100K prize pot. This epic showdown will air TONIGHT only the CW Seed.

Over the past few weeks, Australia has had two tournaments. One that occurred late January which was the Sydney monthly tournament YSB and the other was the online tournament hosted by Googie. The online tournament is run on PS4, and is free to enter for all Australian and New Zealand residents. Run in a single elimination fashion (with top 3 getting cash payouts), all prize money comes for generous Australian community members who contribute their own cash in order to further the MKX scene here in Aus. Matches are run best of 3 up until top 8 which is run best of 5. Members who place top 8 receive seeding points for further iterations of the tournament. The tournament results as well as the footage is posted below:

So, we're all here in on this website together discussing the games, having fun and all is usually well and good. Well, sometimes Real Life issues come about and sometimes they're more serious than others. What I am getting at is no joke and a member of our community needs our help.

Yesterday in Columbus, Ohio there was a terrible incident where a man welding a machete attacked multiple people in a restaurant. While no one was killed, there were multiple injuries including some critical injuries. You can read about the incident more here: "Man Who Allegedly Attacked Ohio Restaurant With Machete Was Known to FBI, Sources Say".

@Tim Static and his family rely on this restaurant for a large portion of their income. Unfortunately, this restaurant is closed during this investigation. Tim's wife, who is employed at the restaurant, was inside when this incident occurred, which makes this whole thing that much more traumatizing. Tim's words:
Earlier this week i teased a new I app my team and I created called MKX Notes. Glad to say we are submitting to the app store tomorrow and it will be available as soon as apple approves it! Right now it's iOS only, mainly because core functionality of this app was already made in a previous app for iOs and it was easy for us to port those features over here to this. TE is done on the iOS side but the Android side is still in production (and is the main reason TE isn't being released this month unfortunately)

(Update) Android version SHOULD be out by WBX hopefully. Please check out the video below! BTW is 100% FREE.
In case you missed the Kombat Kast from earlier today, NetherRealm Showed off Leatherface. We knew from a slight ESL/CW leak that Leatherface had a "Killer" variation and today we learned that his other two variations were "Butcher" and "Pretty Lady" (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2). Additionally, it took no time as all for this footage to be uploaded by various YouTubers so, below you'll find multiple videos
The next Kombat Kast, took place today. If you missed it, you can check out out in the archives at http://www.twitch.tv/netherrealm/v/43642420 Today, we learned that Leatherface's variations are Pretty Lady, Killer & Butcher, and NRS @16 Bit showed up a lot of awesome stuff.

So it looks like next episode we are going to get a look at the new characters. Does that mean a Kombat Kast is coming soon?
Recently CW Seed released a series of videos created by Machinima. I feel like this show is not getting enough attention. It follows the events following up the ESL Finals. It features well known players such as @HoneyBee @cR Biohazard @Pig Of The Hut @Perfect Legend @SonicFox5000. To start off this show is really good. It gives you insight to the players lives outside the game. You learn a bit about their personal lives including dating, Relationships with their families and with each other. You get to see the passion and dedication each of these players have for Mortal Kombat X and the things they are willing to do to get into the ESL Finals. The show has its funny moments and
Sup Guys! I leave a collection of Kung Lao combos ending with all Brutalities. (Stage and character). I also add some fun and trick endings to activate the black screen. I hope you can get many ideas and much appreciated to share this video. Check it out below:

EGP Toasty Tuesdays 3
With SoCal locals finally returning after the Holiday Season, EGP Weeklies returned at the KO Gaming Lounge in Rowland Heights. Many of SoCal's best attended including Nubcakes, Han Rashid, Awesomo, Airvidal, Luminary Cheeko, and more.

    • TonyJaabreaker, a really good Kenshi, traveled 6 hours just to attend the tournament. He also had some of the best matches of the week.​
    • Awesomo pulls out a character that ISN'T Johnny, and does well with them!​
    • The infamous SF player Bushinstyle returns to MKX competitive play.​
    • Nubcakes shows that he's not below counterpicking, even though he mains Shinnok.​
    • I only commentated a couple matches, so 80% of the stream should be safe to listen to.​
