The ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League is live for the first week of North American competition! The top sixteen qualifiers will compete in a single elimination bracket that promises to produce some of the hottest matches in the world. Watch live on Twitch below and share your comments on the forum:

SonicFox5000 looms large from the top half of the Top 16 bracket. The unofficial 2014 Mortal Kombat Evo World Champion took three of four exhibition warm-ups, including the much lauded Fatal 8 event! He could be the player to beat in the Week 1 finals!

REO & WoundCowboy will be one of the first round matches to watch. REO enters as favourite with an opportunity to set-up a massive Round 2 grudge match with 2-time Evo World Champion and arch-rival PerfectLegend!
