From the Palace Gates of Shang Tsung's Island to the desolate Marketplace of Outworld -- we celebrate a contest called Mortal Kombat! With the reveal of Mortal Kombat X stoking the fires of anticipation: Ermac was chosen by the community to be 2014 Supreme Mortal Kombat Champion!

The soul-man may have proved he can go it alone, but the perils of kombat sometimes require even the strongest fighter mount a team effort! Throughout decades of Mortal Kombat we've seen the forging of many deadly alliances! It remains to be seen if Mortal Kombat X will incorporate the 2-on-2 Tag Team Kombat of the previous game, but because fans demanded it - we once again bring together 16 powerful pairings to crown the ultimate two-man champions!

During the first Tag Team Tournament we pooled teams from all of MK history to celebrate the 20th Anniversary! This time around we're drawing inspiration from Mortal Kombat (2011) and the team-ups that may lie ahead in the rewritten, unrevealed alternate future. More tournament details follow:

We've selected an eclectic field of sixteen deadly alliances inspired by the new timeline and the potential future that lies ahead in Mortal Kombat X! No fighter will be repeated in more than one combination. Ermac & Kenshi are kicking things off as the 2014 Supreme Champion and his potential partner. Who's next? The rest of the bracket will be completely randomized and revealed each day as Round 1 progresses!

As with the previous tournament; each tag team outcome will be determined by the result of a regularly updated MK Online User Poll [located top left]. Criteria for voting is up to you, but we recommend fairplay and consideration for the qualities that make a great team. When in doubt, consider their most contemporary versions, their unique strengths, weaknesses and viability to the future.

It is time! Thirty-two fighters become two titan teams as Tag Team Tournament 2 begins! There can be only one tandem standing as we whittle away to declare the Supreme Mortal Kombat Tag Team!

From the Palace Gates of Shang Tsung's Island, to the very top of the Pyramid of Argus, right back to where it all began. Only one of these duos can be crowned Supreme Mortal Kombat Tag Team Champions! Now is the time to vote for the greatest of two. Who will reign supreme?... FIGHT!
