Well, that "tournament" was an epic fail. Only 8 people showed up and signed their name and an hour after it was supposed to start the organizer lamed out and proclaimed there wouldn't be a tournament at all because there were too few people. I totally wasted about about 3 hours of my time. Thanks for nothing Gamestop.

Yeah, MK is dead in Oklahoma and really the nation, only thing that is keeping it alive is it being at MLG. I mean really 8 people sound like a resounding success considering that normally semimajors are lucky to have 15 or more players of the game.

No no it's dying sure but it isn't dead, and other than MLG we have EVO which has MK9 as an official game.

MLG is only doing well because of the big pot. Tbh 8 is a Horrid turnout for a competitive game but hey if Netherrealm can send out a game every 2 years they might start catching the eye of the fgc.

There will always be gamers that care about the cash; don't mistake a tournament series keeping a game series alive via cash infusions vs actual community level appreciation for a game.

That said - any game getting love is better than no FG's getting love :)

Not a joke. Where i'm getting at is each event has only 3 of the same people... the other 5 is new. If you guys would collaborate hey go to OKgamers.com more people will show up. I guarantee the other people a the event is thinking no one plays.
