Stream.Me’s Kombat Cup Circuit season two is here, bringing back several of the world’s best Mortal Kombat players. This includes season one champion and undisputed best player in the world SonicFox (Dominique McLean). The four-month tournament circuit will provide a $12,000 prize pool that will be distributed throughout the event. The season finale will take place on May 14th.
The Mortal Kombat scene needed a breath of fresh air. Dedicated players are running out of viable tournaments to attend. This is apparent considering the upcoming release of Injustice 2, which will most likely be replacing MKXL as the NRS tournament game. The Kombat Cup will give players a chance to play and win money playing Mortal Kombat XL.
The field of players is stacked once again for Kombat Cup season two. On top of SonicFox, his teammate Scar (Brad Vaughn) will be participating. Both players are widely considered as two of the best to ever play the game. The Noble Esports MKXL division will also be a major player in the Kombat Cup. Dragon (Ryan Walker), Illuusions (Richard Luu), and Tweedy (Tommy Tweedy) will be back after a successful season one, making it all the way to the season finale.
It won’t be an easy road for the returning champ. After finishing second in league play, both Illuusions and Dragon took SonicFox to game five in the season finale before ultimately falling. Players are starting to catch up.
Registration opens on February 5th and the circuit starts on February 12th. Each week will have three separate events. Included will be the top eight qualifier (open play), the Wednesday Weekly Finale, and Konquest on Thursday. On top of earning prize money, each event will be worth qualifying points that goes towards making it to the season finale in May.
Stream.Me will provide the weekly tournament coverage as they continue to support the MKXL community. The Kombat Cup will bring eyes to a game vying for that final spot at Evo 2017, and leagues like this should help the cause. Watch to see if SonicFox can defend his title and stay virtually unbeaten in Mortal Kombat.
