MLG Anaheim Injustice: Gods Among Us and Killer Instinct Passes are ON SALE

Earlier today MLG announced via Twitter that passes for Injustice: Gods Among Us and Killer Instinct would go on sale at 5 P.M. ET. This post is to inform all of my Injustice and fighting game readers that the passes are, in fact, now on sale. Below I will keep a comprehensive list of entrants for both games up until the event. Also I will provide the links that you can follow to buy your pass. The ultimate goal here is to reach the 128-player cap that MLG has set. This would encourage Major League Gaming to keep fighting games around and prove that the Injustice and Killer Instinct players deserve this recognition.

OPINION – Top 5 Injustice: Gods Among Us Players

Now before I begin my list, I’m going to set the stage for all who continue reading this article. I’ve been following fighting games, primarily NetherRealm Studios games, since MLG Columbus 2012. This is where my passion for fighting games grew exponentially. Some people are born to play fighting games. I am not one of these people and it didn’t take me long to accept that. You can catch me supporting my local scene and trying to earn wins, but in no way am I an even serviceable Injustice player. I tend to think of myself as more of a professional spectator. In the past I have interviewed many of the top Mortal Kombat players, and I like to think that I know what I’m talking about.

Despite it being a year old, Injustice: Gods Among Us is still a new game. Players will develop and earn their recognition. The incoming list is one-hundred percent my opinion. That is not to say I do not expect criticism, because I do. I am welcoming all who view this list to call me out on my personal opinion. I’ve taken many aspects of Injustice and tournament history into consideration when constructing this list. This list is not created with the purpose of offending any of the top players within the Injustice scene.
