IBA’s Computer Science Society hosted a Mortal Kombat XL tournament during ProBattle’17. The competition took place on the 4th of March where numerous MKXL players hailing from Karachi participated, as well as 2 players from Lahore. PVGF’s founder Tariq Rathore (also known as MKRayden) took the tournament by storm and after being undefeated in all of his rounds, bagged the 1st position. Not only him but PVGF’s Co-founder Khalid Malik (also known as Krausar) also played extremely well throughout the tournament, coming in 3rd place. The tournament had a lot of great players, from Hassan Ur Rehman’s comebacks as Sub-Zero to Rameez Arif’s juggling as Kitana but alas, their skills were not enough to match the might of PVGF’s players.
NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon recently spoke to the possibility of a Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter game, noting that while there would be many hurdles to overcome, if Capcom approached him about a crossover, he'd "have to entertain it."
