Widely known as one of the best Ermac specialists, Florida’s Ryan “Big D” DeDomenico plays every variations of Ermac at a tournament level. Big D features a very patient and focused play style sporting a strong neutral game. With a high focus on space control, Big D’s gameplan is to force his opponent to play at his pace and keep momentum in his favor. Big D’s best results over the PGR season accrued from a 5th place finish at Summer Jam X, a 7th place finish at Combo Breaker and a fantastic 4th place finish at the largest Mortal Kombat X event, Evo 2016. With wins over numerous top players including Hayatei, Forever King, iLuusions, and Biohazard and a respectable 5-7 head-to-head set record against the PGR top 15, Big D cemented himself as one of the best players throughout Mortal Kombat X’s lifespan. Big D has high aspirations heading into Injustice 2 and is looking to maintain the same success transitioning over.

The second player to be feature on the PGR from Noble Esports’ fantastic lineup of Mortal Kombat X players is Missouri’s Weiminh “(Red) Raptor” Lam. Regarded as one of the best Takeda’s and perhaps the best Hellfire Scorpion, Raptor is known for his technical prowess and strong cerebral style of play. Raptor’s PGR season was highlighted by a pair of 5th place finishes at both KIT 2017 and ESL Season 3, a 7th place finish at Summer Jam X, and an eye-catching 3rd place finish at Combo Breaker 2016. Proving he could compete with the best in the word, Raptor took sets over renowned players such as Wound Cowboy, Destroyer, Tweedy, and iLuusions. Raptor is also one of the few players to take a set off of fighting game prodigy SonicFox after eliminating him in a game 5 thriller at Combo Breaker 2016. With his rise to the top in Mortal Kombat X, Raptor is in a prime position to make great strides in upcoming title Injustice 2

The second PGR ranked player out of Florida, Andrew “Semiij” Fontanez is known for his very intuitive and creative gameplay. Boasting both a top level Ravenous variation and Ethereal variation of Mileena, Semiij’s play style features very innovative setups and punishes. Semiij also carries a strong Cassie Cage that he can utilize depending on the matchup. Semiij’s most notable placements for the PGR season are a pair of 4th place finishes at Final Round XX and CEO 2016 and a 5th place finish at Kumite in Tennessee 2017. Sporting a very respectable 6-8 set record versus the rest of the PGR top 15 and wins over top talent such as Scar, Dragon, Wound Cowboy, Big D and SylverRae, Semiij solidified himself as one of the greatest players in the Mortal Kombat X scene over the last year. With Semiij rapidly improving towards the end of Mortal Kombat X, he will certainly be a player to watch heading into Injustice 2.

Despite only attending 2 PGR sanctioned tournaments over the past season, Sayed “Tekken Master” Hashim left a lasting impression on the Mortal Kombat X competitive scene. Hailing from the small Middle Eastern nation of Bahrain, Tekken Master had a difficult time traveling to United States and European tournaments. Tekken Master sports a very bold and unique play style complimented by his two feature characters, Kotal Kahn and D’Vorah. Proving quality is still greater than quantity, Tekken Master made the most of his two tournaments attended with a 7th place at NEC 17 and a stellar 2nd place finish at the largest Mortal Kombat X tournament of the year, Evo 2016. Tekken Master is one of the four players that holds a positive set record against the rest of the PGR including wins over the prodigy SonicFox and the unpredictable Scar. With his tournament success, Middle Eastern esports organization NASR signed Tekken Master on to be one of the flagship players for their fighting game lineup. If given the opportunity to travel more in the future, Tekken Master could be a very serious threat in upcoming title Injustice 2

Ronin Takeda specialist and fan favorite, Alexandre “Hayatei” Dude-Bilodeau is the best Mortal Kombat X player in Canada. Highly regarded for his astute technical prowess and high level of confidence, Hayatei features an almost unrivaled sense of space control and stage presence. As one of the early adopters and original pioneers of the Ronin variation of Takeda, Hayatei was very candid about Ronin Takeda’s place in the overall meta. Takeda’s impressive range meshed almost perfectly with Hayatei’s unnatural sense of spacing. Hayatei boasts a very impressive collection of set wins including wins over Dragon, Big D, Biohazard, Destroyer, and Raptor. He is also one of the small handful of players to take a set off of the young prodigy SonicFox. Hayatei’s most significant tournament results for the PGR season were a 3rd place finish at NEC 17, a 4th place finish at SoCal Regionals 2016, a 5th place finish at Evo 2016 and a splendid 2nd place finish at Combo Breaker 2016. His tournament success throughout Mortal Kombat X brought the attention of esports organization Panda Global who signed him as a professional player. Hayatei has the potential to be a star player heading into upcoming title Injustice 2.
