N0rdicNinja and myself are happy and proud to announce that the WHB Company (The guys who made Summer Crowns and Beatdowns and other previous events possible) has adopted a new group to build a strong Mortal Kombat community in the MD/DC/VA area. This new MK group is called Mid-Atlantic Kombat (MAK)
MAK is a competitive community based out of the DC/MD/VA area dedicated to providing a much needed Mortal Kombat scene in an area that has completely lacked one up until this point. We will be providing an outlet for players to regularly prove themselves against others in a competitive environment and will also be organizing regular casual events for players to level up their game. It’s important to us that we not only compete with each other, but we also improve together and get to know each other as a community.
We will be working in cooperation with our brother group, VATR, and will fall under the same WHB umbrella. Test Your Rage on October 22nd will be our first event and we, along with VATR, would like to announce the RAGE COMICS competition! Show us your artistic side and create a meme that relates to VATR, MAK, Tekken, Mortal Kombat, past events, future events and/or anything in between! The cut off date for submissions will be October 14th with voting to follow between October 15th and the 21st. The winner will receive $10 in credits usable at any WHB events, including TYR on the 22nd. To enter simply e-mail your submission to MAKombat@gmail.com along with your name or handle. One submission per person please!
Without further ado, MAK and VATR presents…

Those of you that were at the last VATR event know how we get down. We’re all about trolling, sodium chloride, RAGE, and having a fucking awesome time! There will be trash talking, there will be salt and you can bet your ass there will be hype! But it’s all in good fun with the ultimate goal of establishing a high energy competitive environment for everyone who shares a love for MK, emphasis is on community, so come out and support your community! Bring friends and have a good time.
