MK9 was one of the most entertaining and hype games to watch this year. Not only EVO, but other tournaments as well. The game had low numbers this year, but I believe it will not die during 2014. A lot of people love it and will play it. We can also see new online players coming at tournaments.
The hype during it’s finals and top 8 was amazing. I heard even other people who don’t play it enjoyed themselves and the gameplay.
Gameplay this year has improved a lot. The players showed extremely great skill (DJT escaping and punishing with a full combo REO’s NDC’s with standing 1 was just out of this world).
And lastly, the game had relatively big character variety in top 8. It is known that more characters have the potential to make top 8 that didn’t show up this time (Johnny Cage, Smoke, Reptile, Kenshi, Skarlet).
Also, I understand that EVO is also about numbers. And MK had relatively low numbers compared to other games, but I believe this number of attendees (over 250) will remain stable, maybe it’ll even increase as we’ve seen a lot of online players this year.
So please take a moment to sign this.
Also spread the word of course. I want this game next year.
