MLG Pro Circuit Winter Championships Preview

Just over a month and a half after the original announcement; Mortal Kombat officially invades Major League Gaming at this weekends Pro Circuit Winter Championship, in Columbus, Ohio!

Offering a big money prize pool of $33.4 thousand dollars, the MLG event has attracted a confirmed registration of seventy-seven players, overshadowing the Evo Series' NorCal Regional, the same weekend.

With the original purse doubled from $16k by sponsors [full story], the potential for profit provides a valuable incentive for the growing MK division. Evo 2011 Champion, Perfect Legend, is one of the marquee names appearing at the tournament, a major proponent for supporting the partnership between MK and the MLG brand. In a recent interview with MKO, he spoke of the consolidated benefits the Pro Circuit can bring to the existing community, "... this 33k is going to not only bring out the killers internationally, but it’s going to breed a whole new generation of killers."

Joining the announced roster are plenty of other big names from the scene, including Road to Evo series winners, CD Jr and vVv REO; inaugural PDP National Tournament winner, Jwonggg; Final Round XV finalist, VSM Maxter; Crazy Dominican, Tom Brady, WNBA Death, SwiftTomHanks, and many, many more. The complete bracket will be subject to change, with players still able to register at the door.

RE: MLG Pro Circuit Winter Championships Preview

God damn this would be terrifyingly stressful to participate in. Would love to go tho.

I predict Reo , CD Jr, Perfectlegend, and tyrant to FOR SURE make it to top 8. I think any one of them will win it as well.

That said I'm really lookin forward to seeing noobe, J360, SwiftTomHanks, KTSmith, and Maxter play because they main the same characters as me and I can't help but hope they win the whole thing or at LEAST make top 8.

Also if anyone from MKO is going i will automatically root for you and you will be my hero. Looking at you Casslemen, if you fail WE ALL FAIL (no pressure)

I doubt it.

I'd definitely put Perfect Legend, CD Jr., REO, Maxter, Crazy Dominican and DetroitBalln ahead of him. That's 6 already.

With 2 spots left, I'd go for Tyrant, Death or Dizzy.

Then there's also Riu48. Not sure how good the online stars are- Forever King and Curbolicious, but from what I've heard they seem to be nasty good.

EDIT: I totally forgot about THTB and Morty Seinfeld too. Damn!

It also depends how the brackets play out. Should be crazy fun!



Oh, oh! I read CD Jr. decided to drop Jax?! He's messing with 3 new characters and one of them is likely Sektor(?). Interesting. I'd love to see what he can do with Sektor. With all the Sonya talks lately, I wouldn't be surprised if she was one of those three as well.

F*** these commercials after every match. 1 match - 10mins commercials - 1 match - 10 mins commercials






EDIT: The bracket says Casselman lost to Soonk in Winners Bracket round 1, 0-3.

I'll be wishing him luck in losers. I hope he got the casual matches he needed to adjust to the monitors they use at MLG. I got bitten by that before myself. At the very least, he lost to a badass player.

And yeah, the commercials are ridiculous! I turned off Ad Block cause I wanted to support the event, but these things are obnoxious. I was mindfucked by the Raiden confusion, lol. I was really surprised when Reo didn't swap seats at the beginning.

Yeah, I was wondering about the monitors since both, REO and JWong dropped quite a few combos.


"More gameplay at 5.30 PM."


F*** this $hit. I'm mad mad now. I was so hyped, all these breaks are making this a terrible experience.




Meh, I'll go and wash my teeth, wash the dishes, take a shower... Maybe the next match will start by the time I'm done with all of that...


EDIT: Woooooow! Death defeated Morty Seinfeld 3-1 in winners r2 and THTB defeated ClintTheBeast 3-0 also in winners round 2 and we didn't get to see any of these beast matches on stream. LMAO, fail.

Props for tallying the off-stream results. I would not have called some of these wins. I thought Morty would have taken down Death.

It especially helps since the actual stream is about as hype as rain clouds in Seattle.

RE: MLG Pro Circuit Winter Championships Preview

I feel so bad for Wafflez. He got a very unjust combo drop. If you do back+2, 3, Smoke Bomb too quickly, it'll cancel into Akuma teleport. It's not even a true execution error; you're inputting everything right, but your inputs won't buffer properly because of the speed. Granted, if you can eliminate that slight forward down input on pad, it should never occur... but nobody can fucking do that consistently. Additional diagnol inputs are just a part of playing.

EDIT: Then again, he may have just been doing that for safe pressure (same way sub players use clone). I hope that was the case.

That was a very close match. Loved the bro-hug they shared afterwards.


Insane matches coming in round 4:

CD Jr. vs THTB
Riu48 vs Perfect Legend
REO vs DetroitBalln
Tom Brady vs Crazy Dominican
noobe vs Master D
m2dave vs KT Smith
Death vs Maxter
Tyrant vs Dizzy (Tyrant beat Forever King, the online champ, 3-2 in r3)


EDIT: Our fellow MKO member Casselman has unfortunately been eliminated. He lost to TMPSquirtMcGirt 2-3 in the losers side of the bracket. Justin Wong and Curbolicious are one win away from facing each other in the losers bracket hehe.

My God, what was CD doing in the first round of game 1 against Brady? Falling into clones, jumping way too much (even jumped into an ice ball). Luckily he turned it around, played much better afterwards. Lets go CD!

He can do much better unbreakable combos after he cancels out the 2nd fan of the enh. fan toss. He just did a regular air fan. He could have gone for fan lift and then a fan barrage (ground fan, iAF, ground fan, IAF) for much more damage. Come on CD!

LOL @ the interview, you can't get anything out of CD Senior.
