INTRODUCTION

EVO 2021 ONLINE is a series of tournament events. The Tournament Group reserves the right, at its discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of these Rules, provided that any changes are effective immediately and will be made available on the Tournament Website, which each Player hereby agrees to periodically visit and check for any changes, updates, or additions to these Rules. These Rules, including any additional terms or conditions incorporated by reference herein, sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between the Tournament Group and Player with respect to Player’s participation in the Tournament.

TOURNAMENT FORMAT & RULES

Latest Version. The latest version update of the Game will be used for Tournament play, including any new characters and balance updates.

Double Elimination. The Tournament will be played out as a Double Elimination competition. In a “Double Elimination” competition, Players compete in Match Sets and advance starting from the Winner’s side of the Tournament (the “Winner’s Bracket”). If a Player loses a Match Set while on the Winner’s Bracket, that Player will move to the Loser’s side of the Tournament (the “Loser’s Bracket”). If a Player loses a Match Set while on the Loser’s Bracket, thus receiving their second loss, that Player is eliminated and will no longer advance in the Tournament.

Match Sets. All “Match Sets” will be Best-of-Three, except for the Winner’s Finals, Loser’s Finals, and Grand Finals, of which will be Best-of-Five. In a “Best-of-X” the first Player to win the majority of “X” number of Matches is declared the winner of the Match Set, and any Matches that have not been played at that point will not be played. In a Best-of-Three, for example, the first Player to win two (2) Matches will be immediately declared the winner of the Match Set. The winner of a single Match is determined when the Game awards the win to that Player or upon the opponent causing a Match Disruption or other violation of the Rules as determined by the Tournament Group.

Winner Lock Rules. Players must comply with the “Winner Lock Rules” listed for each title in section (n) below

Player Options. Prior to commencement of a Match Set, Players may exercise the following options:

Button Check. Players may request a Button Check where they may use the beginning of the first round of a match to check that buttons on a controller are working and that match connectivity is adequate. After this check, Players must immediately finish the match with one (1) Player holding forward for the remainder of the rounds to quickly return to the lobby and then begin commencement of the official Match Set. If the Tournament Group determines that Players are playing against each other as if it were an official Match during a “Button Check”, that match is subject to be recognized as an official Match instead.

Double K.O. In the event of a tied Match declared by a “Double K.O.” on the Game screen, the Match will not be scored and both Players will replay the tied Match with the same character selections and stage.

Grand Finals. The “Grand Finals” of a Double Elimination competition is a Match Set series comprised of up to two (2) Best-of-Five Match Sets between the final two (2) Players left in the Tournament: the highest advancing Player from the Winner’s Bracket, and the highest advancing Player from the Loser’s Bracket. In the event the Player from the Winner’s Bracket wins the first Best-of-Five Match Set, the Grand Finals immediately ends, giving the Player from the Loser’s Bracket their second loss to be eliminated from the Tournament. The Player from the Winner’s Bracket is then declared the Grand Champion for the Tournament. In the event the Player from the Loser’s Bracket wins the first Best-of-Five Match Set, thereby giving the Player from the Winner’s Bracket their first loss, a second Best-of-Five Match Set will be played (the “Grand Finals Reset”). Players may select new characters and exercise any Player Options for this new Match Set. The Player that wins this final Match Set, thereby giving the other Player their second loss to be eliminated from the Tournament, is declared the Grand Champion.

Sony has acquired the Evolution Championship Series

Sony buys Evo fighting games tournament, schedules Evo Online 2021 – Polygon

Evo was just picked up by Sony Interactive Entertainment and RTS

PlayStation Buys Evo Fighting Game Championship Series, Announces 2021 Event Dates, Nintendo Comments – IGN

SIE Blog – English – The latest in news and updates from Sony Interactive Entertainment

Sony Interactive Entertainment and new esports venture RTS have jointly acquired the Evolution Championship Series

Sony’s statement said the Cannons will “ensure that Evo remains a one-of-a-kind, grassroots competitive platform for fighting game players and fans around the globe.” None of the parties to the deal revealed the cost of the acquisition, and Sony and Endeavor are likewise silent on their stakes and ownership split in the RTS venture.

Evo Online will take place Aug. 6-8 and Aug. 13-15 as an open format tournament, offering free entry to players in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. The tournament lineup features Tekken 7, Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, and Guilty Gear Strive, which launches in June.

“We want to reaffirm that harassment or abuse of any kind has no place within Evo or any of our future events, and we’re taking every precaution to make sure members of our community will always be treated with the respect, dignity, and decency you deserve,” reads the letter.

Also very important to note. @EVO is still open to all platforms. The teams at PlayStation and RTS are enabling us to continue working with our community to support fighting games. https://t.co/NKMQUSvkfj— Mark Julio (マークマン) (@MarkMan23) March 18, 2021

First images of the movie Mortal Kombat #mortalkombat

Mortal Kombat first look: Inside the R-rated reboot with Lewis Tan, Simon McQuoid | EW.com

McQuoid is still editing the film, but he already knows “it’s definitely not gonna get a PG-13 rating.”

“Out of context this quote might seem incendiary, it’s not: The rules around ratings aren’t what a lot of people think they are,” he says. “It’s amount of blood, it’s amount of red, it’s interpretation of how you go about it. We had a lot of discussions about getting the balance right so there was gore and there was blood and there were fatalities.” He pauses to repeat what he just said. “And there is gore, blood, and fatalities.”

Fatalities, as in the dramatic finishing moves from the games that often involve severing someone completely in half or ripping out someone’s spine, will be realized for the first time in a Mortal Kombat movie. “There are some crazy fatalities,” Tan confirms. “We’ve picked a couple of iconic ones. There’s a lot of really cool signature moves that you’ll see, a lot of Easter eggs that we snuck into the film, but there are some really badass fatalities that I can’t wait to see on the big screen. They’re brutal, man. They, they don’t hold back.” At the same time, McQuoid “didn’t want to get into NC-17 territory.” He notes, “It’s amazing how quickly you can get there. It doesn’t take much.” At least, not for a Mortal Kombat movie.

Best part of the article, the talk about fatalities, first time in a MK movie, I have no hope about it, I’ll just wait and see.

SPLASH!! make it Rain, trailer of the Purple Rain ninja from MK11.

 
 
I am no friend of yours. I am Rain, a prince of Edenia.
 

 

Rain was originally meant to appear in Mortal Kombat 3, but didn’t actually appear until Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Rain was originally a red herring inserted by the game developers; a character shown in the game’s attract mode who did not actually exist within the game itself. A recent interview reveals that the insert was made by Ed Boon himself to intentionally trick players. Many MK fans searched for him in vain, with the eventual realization of his status as a joke character (named after a Prince song, “Purple Rain“) dawning. The joke expands further when it is revealed that Rain is a “prince” himself. He would, however, soon make an actual appearance in the console versions of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and Mortal Kombat Trilogy as a full-fledged character with his own history (that of a traitor to his realm) and move set, to the delight of many fans and the chagrin of others. His popularity is mixed within the MK fanbase. He is a DLC character for Mortal Kombat (2011), with his debut gameplay trailer released on July 11, 2011, and the character itself released on July 19th.

One of the new fighter from the last Kombat pack, with Mileena and Rambo (WTF), available in the Ultimate Edition, and every MK11 game you have ..

November 17 on PS4 and PS5, also X box series X, kombat pack 2 for Mortal Kombat 11 and the Ultimate version of the game.

So it’s Kombat pack 2 for you guys, bringing us long awaited Mileena, rain and not wanted at all John Rambo, I understand the joke of 90s action heroes but it’s enough now.. after Roboflop and Flopinator.. now John Flopbo, at least bring John McLane ?!

It has now a hundred versions of the game, the base game, the Kombat Pack 1, The aftermath one with the game + KP1 and the sextension of the story, the KP2 and The Ultimate version with everything inside.. Fuck you, I won’t buy the game ten times. Jokes are good for a time but it isn’t funnier the 35th times..

Pre-order will bring you new skins..

Free upgrades for new generation of consoles and krossplay between them, I don’t play the game anymore, I won’t play it on PS5 neither. I’ll wait for the 12th MK instead, even if it has enhanced visuals and dynamic 4K resolution upgrades. Well perhaps I’ll try it but..
