Stick to one team and grind to win

There are different approaches to selecting characters in fighting games. Someone experiments with a few mains to be flexible for various matchups. Someone sticks to one character to master their abilities to the level of perfection. 

It seems like Shuletah prefers the second path — at least for now. At the previous online tournament,  IKFK NA, Week 4, (literally one-two days ago), this player finished 2nd while playing Raiden/Cyrax throughout the whole Top 8 part. For TNS Mortal Kombat 1 #6, Shuletah chose the same team of character/kameo. Could the result be even better this time?

Shuletah entered Top 8 through the Losers brackets, and the way to the Grand Final had some ups and downs — from relatively confident matches vs EMPR_SmacK and HellaLarry to super close fights against Hourglass_of_rain and SRyu PainF.

It’s worth noting one of the teams especially, Kung Lao/Kung Lao by SRyu PainFZ. Such a “mirror” combination rarely happens at this pretty early stage of MK1 competitive play. 

Another unusual thing is seeing Tanya played by two participants. This character is not considered top-tier, but apparently, it’s not an obstacle.

Shuletah stuck to Raiden/Cyrax — and celebrated a victory after resetting brackets and winning the decisive game vs JustNasty. 

The 2nd player in this tournament also demonstrated something educational. JustNasty actively experimented with kameos while keeping the same character. MK1 opens many possibilities with this assists system.


1. Shuletah Raiden/Cyrax

It will be super interesting to witness the difference between online and offline MK1 tournaments. Stay tuned to DashFight for various info about ECT 2023 and further Pro Kompetition events.
