MLG picks up MK


#1

I’m surprised there isn’t a topic about this.

I do have an opinion on the whole Esports debate, but I also believe that the MK community does deserve all the support it can get, and I also think that picking up a non-major game its an excellent strategy to help our communities improve their relationship.

If they picked up KOFXIII next, my head would just explode with happiness :rofl:

Any thoughts?

:coffee:


#3

Sad to say it probably won’t last long.


#4

This has chances to go pretty good for the community. Not into MK anymore last big patch changed things I really dissagree with but I’m really hoping for the best.


#5

Pretty much this. I think the MLG guys did say a lot about Namco being supportive and I would be surprised if SCV isn’t the next game to be added, and SCV will have a higher chance of being a success. It will be interesting to see what they could do with SCV vs what SCV will perform in EVO this year.


#6

Meh… EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEsports take themselves way too seriously.


#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

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.
