Are you excited for some Mortal Kombat X? We’ve got some cool stuff this month to celebrate its release. Thanks to Warner Bros.

Centralised registration will cease at 2pm so if you arrive after that, please find one of the tournament organisers floating around and sign up with one of us.

We’ll be re-working the tournament schedule from last month to accommodate some different titles like Mortal Kombat X. The tournament times for this month will be as follows:

We’ll be trialing more tournaments this month! Sign-ups will open half an hour prior to the scheduled start time, so make yourself known to an organiser then to ensure you’re added to the bracket. Tournaments are as follows:

If there’s a game you don’t see run this month be sure to speak up and show some support for it, as it may be considered for future YSBs. We are trialing the new schedule this month but there’s plenty of wiggle room.
