KombatNetwork Schedule throughout 2016

Wow! It’s been a while. We apologize for the lack of major updates and events this year. Winter Brawl and Final Round were a blast, and we subbed for 8WayRun at the Break for 4 weeks during the spring. Mikemetroid has been running regularly and doing special streams with his brothers on KN. Hopefully we’ll add more regular streams and form a lineup. Due to some events having changed dates and other events popping up, the majority of KN’s schedule is between August and December this year.

Busy month for KN has come to a close, break time? More casual streams coming?

After the wild success of SJ with over 200 players for MKX, TFC drawing about 120, AVGC being an amazing debut Game Con with some FGC on the side, and having to actually turn down some bookings, KN has a clear schedule until NEC in December. We are keeping our ears open for an early October event possibility and also a possibility of attending Defend the North in a guest capacity but otherwise, things have been excellent lately for KN.

Also, take note that KN is experimenting with semi nightly online challenge streams courtesy of our senior staff member Mikemetroid. So tune in when he is on, we are working on a program for him and set schedule, featured/guest matches and opponents, online tournaments etc not limited to MKX. All games are welcome and we mean all! It’s Metroid Primetime!
