Tiers for Mortal Kombat X Win a joystick by writing tips about Mortal Kombat X on EventHubs

Will Mike Ross and K-Brad go undefeated, or will Dolph Lundgren take them down? Find out on tonight's Capcom Pro Talk

Updated with stream archive: If you're subscribed to Capcom Fighters, you can check out the archive for this week's Pro Talk which featured EG|K-Brad talking about the 5 most overrated players, and some... interesting, but very entertaining online sessions.

Earning Twitch Turbo subscriptions off of Mike Ross and guests during Capcom Pro Talk has become a thing, but today, Mike Ross threw down the gauntlet and said via Twitter that, "K-Brad is warming up! No Twitch Turbos today! We going UNDEFEATED!"

Although we're not really sure what Dolph Lundgren's thoughts are on the matter, I thought if he read this message, his response would look something like it does in the banner.

Regardless, Mike Ross will welcome EG|K-Brad tonight for another episode of Capcom Pro Talk, starting at 7 p.m. PDT. The live stream, as always, is embedded below.

NetherRealm has plans for grassroots tournaments around the world, says ESL creative producer; explains why MKX Pro League is on Xbox One

It was recently announced that NetherRealm Studios will be partnering up with ESL to run a series of Mortal Kombat X tournaments this year. Known as The Worldwide Competitive Program, this series will feature the Fatal 8 Exhibition Tournament and Mortal Kombat X ESL Pro League Tournament -- one pitting 8 of the world's best Mortal Kombat players against one another, and the other a string of online events with a local grand final, respectively.

Joshua Gray, creative producer at ESL America, recently took to the TestYourMight forums to run an AMAA (ask me almost anything) session. Naturally, the Mortal Kombat community over at TYM wanted to know more about The MKX Worldwide Competitive Program.

In order to better unify the online players for season one of the competitive program, Gray states that Warner Bros., ESL, and NetherRealm decided that the best course of action was to have everyone play on one platform. Xbox One was the console of choice for a number of reasons.

"After months of meetings, it was decided to go with the Xbox One for NA/EU for a variety of reasons, including: the track record of support from Xbox for competitive leagues, the robust performance of Xbox Live, [and[ the ESL App on the Xbox One," Gray explained.

The three entities behind this competitive league feel that their choice was indeed the best one, even if the decision was a difficult one to make.

Devil Jin now a playable character in Tekken 7 arcade, nearly 30 minutes of footage featuring the returning fighter

This week, the Japanese arcade release of Tekken 7 has received a new playable fighter.

As of today, Devil Jin can now be selected in-game. Fans who currently have access to Tekken 7 have wasted no time posting footage of the returning fighter online, and today we have nearly 30 minutes of Devil Jin gameplay.

Last week, Jin Kazama was added to the playable roster after only being included in-game as a secret sub-boss character. This week, we've got Devil Jin, and Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada previously stated that the next character, Josie Rizal, was originally schedule to release during Japan's Golden Week holiday (the first week of May), however, that release window has still yet to be confirmed by Bandai Namco.

Until the next character drops, though, be sure to watch the footage of Devil Jin running through arcade mode in Tekken 7.

Harada: 'Good netcode? There's no such code that automatically makes the latency issues go away' - Tekken 7's low-lag techniques explained

Bandai Namco Entertainment's Tekken series has routinely featured some of the best online play experiences in fighting games ever. In terms of latency management, the implementation in Tekken titles is quite possibly the best-in-class.

But what's the secret to that buttery-smooth, online play experience in the latest Tekken titles? What kind of ancient ritual did the Tekken Project development team have to perform in order to achieve that level of low-lag performance? And how many cute little kittens were sacrificed in the process?

The answer to that last question? None. (Tekken Project lead Katsuhiro Harada is an animal lover, and owns a pet dog which he calls Heihachi-kun; he'd jump in to save the kittens before anything untimely could happen to them).

Latency management in fighting games is a science, Harada tells Famitsu in an interview the Japanese games publication recently conducted.

It's not something that developers can bring about through ancient sorcery or by writing "really good netcode" -- something Harada akin to voodoo magic.

Read on to find out why.

Which characters should be added to Super Smash Bros. 4 as DLC? The EventHubs team shares their votes!

During the Nintendo Direct that aired last week, Nintendo revealed the official release date for Mewtwo and introduced Lucas into the Super Smash Bros. 4 world.

While getting two DLC characters in Smash is great, it appears that the company may not be stopping there. They have since asked fans which characters they'd like to see added to the playable roster and have even opened up a special website at which you can vote for whichever fighter you think should be added down the road.

We here at EventHubs are all big fans of the Smash Bros. franchise, so it didn't take us long to jump in and cast votes of our own. Today, we have decided to share our picks with you, our readers, and explain why we feel our characters of choice should be considered.

Hisako can Ultra forever in Killer Instinct season 2 and it's incredibly easy to do - watch her land 500+ hits on TJ Combo

Killer Instinct's latest character, Hisako, is officially out and in the hands of players everywhere. While the last update added new balance changes, costumes, and the character herself, of course, it seems that it may have also introduced a glitch involving Hisako's Ultra.

Hisako can land an infinite number of Ultra combos in Killer Instinct season 2, and it is incredibly easy to do.

During the latter portion of her Ultra combo, Hisako hits the opponent with a large naginata strike, sending them stumbling forward. During this time, if you try to hit an Ultra Ender, the attack will whiff, leaving the opponent stuck in that stumbling state for a couple of seconds. This gives Hisako time to recover from the whiffed Ultra Ender, hit a Shadow On Ryo Zan, and launch right back into another Ultra.

This can be repeated forever, and if you decide to do this in an actual match, it'll surely leave your opponent very salty. Having said that, it is clear that the developers did not intend for this technique to work as it does. Melon God, the person who discovered the bug, has already posted this over on the Ultra-Combo forum to inform the devs about its inclusion in the game.

Check out Hisako's infinite Ultras below.

Daigo negates Decapre's Ultra 1, GamerBee knocks Bonchan silly, R.O.B. gimps Fox and more - NCR 2015 final day highlights

The NorCal Regionals 2015 tournament has finished up, and like many FGC events, there was plenty of drama to go around.

We wanted to highlight some of the epic plays that happened on finals day though, starting with the man of the hour, Daigo Umehara, up against young gun, NuckleDu.

MCZ|Daigo vs. Liquid|NuckleDu

This match started off with NuckleDu playing Decapre, and having a bit of success, but with Daigo managing to come up with some killer plays, like chasing down her backdash for a ridiculous punish to take a close round, and more.

Daigo even had an interesting counter to Decapre's ultra 1, which has a considerable amount of hits it can absorb from projectiles, as he challenged it with Evil Ryu's fireballs to mostly negate it, which we show in our first highlight below.

NuckleDu came back though after losing the first two games with his Guile, making an solid run, primarily on countering Evil Ryu's fireballs, which is our second highlight below.

Alas, it wasn't enough, as Umehara came storming through to close out the set, and advance into grand finals, which is shown in our third highlight.
