UltimateMK.com forums have successfully merged into TestYourMight.com’s. We will gradually merge users over time, move threads, and cement TYM’s existence as the most important MK site in the world.
UltimateMK forums will soon be accessible but locked indefinitely. All content is still accessible pending relocation.

On this day, in 2006, UltimateMK.com was born, and opened to public registration after a day of invite only registration. It was conceived in March 2006 in the memory of, and the wake of the death of an OG, the Prophet, Ryan Hutnick. Today, it will rise once more. UltimateMK can in a way be looked at as a parent of KombatNetwork, as KN is a direct descendant of it. Today, we will Test, its Might.
R.I.P. Ryan, and thank you!

Early next year, Kombat Network will be running its first Mortal Kombat tournament out of a new venue in Red Bank, NJ. This same venue is where they recently held a “mini-demo tournament” to see how it went and it was a success. With main investors, Shock and summoning, for this tournament we’re hoping to draw in 32 players. This number should not be very difficult to achieve considering most of East Coast’s monsters are likely to attend.
Sunday, January 22nd, at YesterCades in Red Bank, NJ will be the first official KombatNetwork Mortal Kombat tournament. Start time is 4PM for casuals, tournament will begin at roughly 5PM. $15 venue fee, $10 entry fee. Minimum payouts will be $350, $100, $50 to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
The event is called “Revolution X.” The venue is a new arcade in NJ that opened in October which hosts primarily 80s and early 90s arcade classics. It will be open for regular business operation during the tournament but we will have an entire wall of the building designated for 3 MK setups. The MK players will have access to all the classic arcade machines and pinball during this time but we of course encourage the MK players to pay attention to the tournament as much as possible. Streaming will be provided by KombatNetwork. Not all matches will be streamed due to time constraints but matches will be streamed throughout the duration of the tournament.
The address is 80 Broad Street, Red Bank, NJ 07701. The home of YesterCades which is a 2800 square foot arcade hosting approximately 50 classic arcade machines plus about 10 pinball machines and a pool table. We are working on getting him a couple MK machines and I gave him a list of others, particularly fighting games to consider getting as well.
With that said, for anyone coming and traveling who does want to stay overnight I will gather a list of local hotels and motels. There is a Comfort Inn in Middletown next to an Outback that is about 5 minutes from the venue straight down the highway and is $99 a night. A pricier option is Courtyard Marriot in Red Bank that’s a little farther from the venue and $139 a night. Two hotels in town 2 minutes from the venue are the Molly Pitcher at $139 and Oyster Point but that’s way too expensive around $169 a night. Red Bank is an expensive hang out and tourist area with bars that wouldn’t allow me to step foot in them if I wanted to.If players are going in groups it might be a good idea to pool your rooms together but again, it is a one day event and if only for 8 hours from 4PM until midnight or a little later, we don’t have a set time frame but again I do understand the whole work/school thing for Monday.

The Official Mortal Kombat Facebook page, which is handled by NetherRealm Studios just released a statement concerning the MK Arcade Kollection:
“Thanks to all of our fans who purchased the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection and your continued support. We are aware of the issues with the game and are currently working on a patch to address them for all systems. Our goal is ensure the best gaming experience possible for everyone playing a Mortal Kombat game. Please stay tuned for updates on when a patch will be released.”
Thanks to NetherRealm for a quick response, and thank you to all the players while who were very upset, maintained their poise and acted like mature adults after being disappointed. Trust me, no one is more upset and disappointed than those responsible.
Stay tuned to the Kombat Network for the latest news and info concerning MKAK!!
