NetherRealm Studios-series veteran and Northern California resident Ryan “Wound Cowboy” Gonzalez returns to the top for the Mortal Kombat X PGR representing team Critical Reaction. Ending the season as the gatekeeper to the Top 5 is more than an accomplishment, it is a statement.   

A fortress of his own, Wound Cowboy keeps opponents on their toes from a distance with an impeccable defense.   

Wound Cowboy has never dropped below 7th in any of the five events he attended this season with two 7th place finishes at CEO 2016 and EVO 2016 and a 5th at EVO 2016. For this Shinnok main, there is no place like home like Top 8.   

At a completely even 9-9 set count against the Top 15, Wound Cowboy maintains a highly respectable standing across the competitive community. Excluding his loss at Kumite in Tennessee 2017 to Dragon, Wound Cowboy has losses only to the Top 10 with wins on the Top 3.   

An end of one season precedes the beginning of another -- be sure to follow Wound Cowboy into the latest NRS title where he will surely continue his reign at the top!

With barely over a year of competitive gaming experience, Ryan “Dragon” Walker made an enormous splash throughout the entire competitive Mortal Kombat scene. Ending the season ranked as 4th worldwide is only the beginning for Dragon as he also has his eyes set on this summer of imminent NRS events playing under the Noble Esports banner.   

Having attended all 11 events for the season and sporting a low of 9th place, Dragon has Top 8’d all other times, highlighting his consistency as a top player.   

Taking names across the board with his bold Kitana, Dragon is 13-17 against the Top 15 with a notable 7 losses being to SonicFox himself. Excluding his 1 loss outside the Top 10 to SylverRye (12th), Dragon only loses to the Top 1%.   

Dragon is poised to reach his potential this summer as he dives into a new metagame and accelerates its growth himself with new set ups and combos the latest NRS title, Injustice 2.

Series veteran and best Mortal Kombat X player in Europe, Denom “A F0xy Grampa” Jones is no stranger to the spotlight. Donning the Union Jack on his back with pride, AFG is regarded highly for his results, style, and charisma.   

Each of his voyages to the states has brought back more glory and prizes to the UK Mileena main with incredible finishes such as 1st at Combo Breaker 2016, 3rd at CEO 2016, and 9th at EVO 2016. AFG also scored 2nd at ESL Season 3 and a respectable 9th at NEC 17, one of the more hotly contested tournaments of the season.   

Holding a positive set count of 10-8 against the Top 15, AFG asserts himself as the first piece of the MKX Top 3 trifecta, boasting agility, lethality, and a clutch factor in sets that is nearly impossible to compete with.   

With the majority of his losses being restricted only to the PGR Top 10, AFG rarely succumbs to the pressures of hidden bosses and potential upsets from up-and-coming players which underscores his dominance as a Top 3 competitor.   

More fame and glory is predicted for Problem x Promotions signed AFG as he gears up to slay new challengers this summer in the widely anticipated NRS title, Injustice 2.

Featuring an indomitable will and unrivaled motivation, Brad “Scar” Vaughn is always searching for improvement. Seizing 2nd with the consistency and explosivity of a true legend, it should be of no surprise to anybody following the NRS scene to see Scar topping the charts.    

Trailing just behind SonicFox with a formidable set count against the Top 15 of 25-11 to SonicFox’s 30-9, Scar is responsible for keeping many a challenger out of the Top 3 limelight at majors.    

Punctuating his career with a 2nd at CEO 2016 set the stage for a great year as Scar placed top 4 in every event he attended this season -- a feat only he and SonicFox can claim.   

Being positive or neutral with everyone below him with the exception of Tekken Master, who only met him at EVO 2016 to begin with, Scar does not take anyone lightly in bracket nor does he leave them with much recourse afterward.   

Scar will continue to push his limits as he adopts a new, deadly arsenal in the summer events of the NRS scene with his brand of unparalleled aggression and style.

Undisputably the best player throughout the entirety of Mortal Kombat X, Dominique “SonicFox” McClean is by every definition a fighting game prodigy. By the age of 18, SonicFox accomplished more than most fighting game players accomplish in their careers including multiple Evo wins, multiple ESL Championships and well over $100k total winnings earned with estimates of close to $600k among his lifetime earnings in all NRS titles.   

Placing 1st in every event this season save for 4th at Combo Breaker 2016 and 3rd at both SoCal Regionals and Final Round XX, SonicFox has proven time and time again that he has no issue dominating the competition.   

Despite early nerfs to his original main, Erron Black, SonicFox proved that he can adapt to the meta by immediately adopting a combination of Cassie Cage and Sektor and landing unmatched results just the same.   

Resolutely speaking, SonicFox is set to be the greatest threat to everyone transitioning into Injustice 2 this summer.
