Twitch Rivals Teams Up with Maximillion Dood to Run Mortal Kombat X Lives
Twitch Rivals is returning once again for another retro fighting game throwback tournament. This time instead of playing something like ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or Street Fighter 3rd strike, they are instead opting to play Mortal Kombat X.
The Tournament and Who’s Involved
while Mortal Kombat X might not be considered a retro game, this is not the first time that Twitch has decided to play a more recent game rather than retro. Twitch Rivals had previously done a killer instinct live tournament on their platform back in February of this year. The gentleman who hosted that tournament, Maximilian Dood, is also hosting the Mortal Kombat X Twitch Rivals tournament.
Both Twitch Rivals and Maximilian have already posted on their Twitter accounts letting their fans know of the upcoming event. Qualifiers for the Mortal Kombat X event will be held two days prior on another streamer’s channel Ryan “Mr. Aquaman” Kablik.
Anyone interested in throwing down on Mortal Kombat X should consider joining the qualifiers on Mr. Aquaman’s channel. Two days later, on May 24th Maximilian Dood will be hosting the full tournament for all players to enjoy. This is not the first time that Twitch and Maximilian have worked together. Maximilian has worked previously with Twitch, running the Killer Instinct live tournament and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament, bringing in 40,000 viewers each.
Another FGC creator involved in the Mortal Kombat lives tournament is Ketchup & Mustard, a former competitive gamer turned commentator for Mortal Kombat. MKX Lives is one of the few Twitch Rival events where regular players can join through the Invitational, as they’re usually just been between streamers and professional esports players.
