The Mid-Season Showdown

The first season of the Mortal Kombat X Pro League kicked off a few weeks ago with a series of qualifiers in which many players began their journey to the season finals. The qualifiers have determined the top 16 players from each region (CIS, NA and EU) who will now face each other in the Mid-Season Showdown and battle it out for a guaranteed spot in the season finals and their share of a US$2,500 prize pool.

Each region will get its own showdown, which will share the following format:

  • Top 16 players from weeks one to four

  • The winner secures a spot in the global season finals

  • The matches will use a best of five, single elimination format

The prize money will be distributed as follows:

  • First place: US$1,250

  • Third place: US$250

  • Fourth place: US$250
