MLG is proud to bring you the Mortal Kombat Online Qualifier and live Mortal Kombat Tournament, only on PlayStation 3! This is your chance to show everyone what you’ve got and take home your share of thousands of dollars in prizes. The Online Qualifier is about to begin, and registration is now open. The live tournament will take place at the MLG Raleigh Pro Circuit Live Competition.
The Online Qualifier is the best way to ensure yourself a great spot in the live tournament, but you do not need to participate in the OQ to play live. And if you play in the OQ, that does not mean you have to come out and play live. Here are the details.
