Let the money roll - $50k pot bonus added to MKX for Evo 2015, MKX Worldwide Championship prize pool doubled to $100k. Potentially more on the way

Recently announced today, Warner Bros. Interactive is upping the ante on its commitment to Mortal Kombat X's competitive scene. Due to the success of the "Blue Steel" Sub-Zero skin, they are making multiple contributions to upcoming events.

First up is the brand new announcement of an additional $50,000 pot bonus to be added to the Mortal Kombat X tournament at Evolution 2015! Following that, they are also doubling the prize pool for the ESL Mortal Kombat X Worldwide Competitive Program.

It's important to note that funding through the "Blue Steel" Sub-Zero skin for events like these, also including Community Effort Orlando, ends on June 29th, so we may yet see these figures and efforts increase!

Do you all think that these pot bonuses will increase interest in Mortal Kombat X? How do you feel this'll affect the competitive scene? Sound off in the comments below!

Super Smash Bros. X Mortal Kombat? Smash characters get in touch with their hardcore side when they perform X-ray moves...

This fun video imagines what kind of internal damage is likely going on when a Falcon Knee or a Warlock Punch connects with its target just right.

A YouTuber by the name of Sterling has spliced together footage from both Smash 4 and Mortal Kombat X, and the result is rather humorous. Introduced back in Mortal Kombat 2011, X-ray attacks have become well recognized as a trademark of the competitive MK era.

The X-ray's quick, zoom animations lend themselves nicely to the cross over editing, making the transition seem quite seemless. Sit back and watch some of your favorite Super Smash characters experience their most painful encounters yet.

Level up your Mortal Kombat X game with episode three of Ketchup and Mustard's 'From Casual to Competitive' training series

Professor Ketchup and Professor Mustard are back for another episode in their Mortal Kombat X training series, "From Casual to Competitive."

Thus far, they've taught us how to choose a character to fit our own, personalized style, as well as given us a run down of the meter system and how to manage it. Today's focus is on combos as K&M teach everything from forming simple, two or three hit combos to long chains involving launchers and special moves.

Though watching pros knock off 50% of their opponent's life bar with a fat 15-hit combo might be a bit intimidating, once you learn the basics, you'll find it's not too hard to dole out some high-damage strings yourself.

Even those who are more familiar with the game may discover a pointer or two they were previously unaware of. Hit the jump for episode three of From Casual to Competitive.

Have a question for a fighting game developer? Let us know and we'll try to run it by them at E3 2015

EventHubs is attending E3 2015, and we're planning on talking to as many fighting game community developers as possible while at the show.

As such, we thought it would be fun to find out which questions our readers would like asked. If you have something you'd like to ask the development teams about the following games, please leave a comment below:
  • Street Fighter 5
  • Tekken 7
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Super Smash Bros. 4
  • Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator
  • BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend
  • Killer Instinct
We won't be able to get to every question you leave below, but we'll try and get as many as we possibly can. We'll try and follow up with the developers at a later time to answer some of the other questions we cannot get to at E3.

Kotal Kahn can do 103% in a single combo...

Kotal Kahn is already known for his incredibly high damage output. With regular combos that dole out an upwards of 40%-50% damage, he's a very beefy character to begin with.

Many of Kahn's specials feature mid-match buffs and nerfs to both himself and his opponent. If you utilize Kahn's God Ray, Crystal Totem and Blood Offering specials simultaneously, you can actually do over 100% damage in a single combo.

While it is, perhaps, not entirely practical to think you'd be able fulfill all of these requirements in a tournament match, it's not at all impractical to think you'd be able to land a combo with one or two of these buffs active.

More than anything else, a combo like this draws attention back to Kotal Kahn's potential. As players continue to delve into the character, we may find practical ways into 80% combos as bread and butters... just something to think about.
