MLG picks up MK


#7

It feel so strange to hear MLG pick up MK don’t you think and love MK


#8

This is great for the MK community and I think it will do fine. If this works out then it is a good thing for the entire FGC.

The MK community doesnt do enough to support itself. I’m sitting around @the Michigan Ranbats right now, we have a marval tourny, street fighter tourny, Kof13&SoulCaliber tourny, even a few huddled around a a tiny laptop playing meltyblood. Not one person here to compete in MK. I’m sitting here with the game and nobody is here to play


#11

I see it a good look MK will have some extra energy and momentum to grow. If they get dropped, so what they got a chance if they die after that then that community was never really there.
Of course they really want Capcom games and i feel this is a move to try to show Capcom to give them a license.


#12

Yeah, great, I can’t hear “fuck” and “ass” on stream anymore. Give me a break dude.


#13

Maybe its just the state that your in becasue the MK Community in Georgia we take care of are stuff


#14

Sounds wonderful. I look forward to it.


#15

Thanks for the reply, “deal with it” Pony avatar guy who is too sensitive to hear adult words.


#16

Oh yes, people totally say fuck and ass when they’re trying to sound mature and sophisticated, rather than expressing emotion and contempt.

Anyway, I wouldn’t say good for the community.
What with the constant patches, and only decent play MLG usually puts out, I don’t know.
Unless they’re trying to understand the scene, it will just end up the same way as usual.
How well did Tekken do in E-Sports anyway?


#17

If the scene grows and is able to stand on it’s own better after getting dropped how is that bad?
I mean Capcom keeps tellin them to fuck off let mlg have it and see that they ain’t ready to have fighting games.


#18

He never said anything about MLG being bad for MK, but yeah it will take a miracle for MK not to be dropped after 1 year. Growing a scene isn’t a trivial task and I don’t see why MK would be an upgrade from the T6 that MLG picked up and ditched away in a short time.


#19

Tekken had problems before that though.That said just a wee bit more exposure could do us good.
Of course I’d like if there was a league the the fgc is part of we’d build it like MLG built themselves up.


#20

That’s a big if. The goal is for the scene to grow so obviously if the scene grows its a success. MLG’s track record with fighting games just doesn’t make me very optimistic.


#21

MLG didn’t help Tekken grow; in fact, I’ve heard some say that it had a negative impact on community tournaments.

MLG is doing this because they think it would be good for MLG, not MK.

EDIT: Sorry, it was early when I posted this, and I didn’t see scythe’s post for whatever reason, so what I am saying is redundant; that said, point still stands :p.


#22

Well the smash dudes say other wise the Tekken guys were a mess, who knows. Let them try if it blows up in their face well we got something on them. But really this is all just a ploy to make Capcom sell them the license. I will go out on a limb to say this is a sacrifical lamb to get a capcom game. If they crash and burns and they get a Capcom game well MK was worth that crash.


#23

Uhh if it crash and burns they’ll even be less likely to get a Capcom game. If you can’t take care of a hamster, why the hell would I give you dog (no offense to MK9)?


#24

People often don’t operate under sense.

You have to spend money to make money.

Obviously if they had sf the outcome would be different would it be as they want it? Most likely not but it could be big for them.


#25

MLG and EVO/FGC worked together before, didn’t work.
Some Tekken players blame MLG for the damage done after MLG dropped it (the MLG money was gone, no felt like attending/traveling anymore)
Smash worked for MLG and they prospered but as seen at APEX, FGC and Smash Community are like mixing oil and water.

MK has been a FGC game, I don’t see how this will end better than Tekken and Tekken is the most popular fighting game in the world, no debate.

Not trying to stomp on your optimism or anything, just skeptical.

I’m curious as to why Namco would gamble on MLG again assuming they get SCV. I’ma have to agree with Jebailey, congrats to MLG/MK9 players and hope it works well but if you work directly with the FGC, you get more for less.


#26

Isn’t marvel the obvious choice? the stream numbers say it all why MK? I don’t get it
