All players will be responsible for deleting Bluetooth devices from the PS4 that they are to play a tournament match on.


STREAM

The stream will show exclusively MKX.

PRIZES
MKX
1st Place - $15
2nd Place - $10
3rd Place - $5
4th Place - $5

One random player who enters MKX and places 7th or below will receive free entry to the next Brutality event (a $5 value, cannot be turned into cash or credit). The same person may not win consecutively. The winner of Second Chance will not be eligible to win this $5.

SECOND CHANCE
At 10pm, we will hold a special, single elimination, best 3/5 tournament for any players who have been eliminated from the previous MKX bracket. There is a $2 fee to participate, and first place will receive $5 out of my pocket. All $2 fees will go to the charity I have chosen for this season: Child's Play. Donations will be taken up until the conclusion of Brutality - July, and then a new charity will be selected for the next season of Brutality events (Aug-Nov).

POWER RANKINGS
Players who enter MKX will earn ranking points based on their performance. The top 5 ranked players will be invited to compete in a Championship Round Robin during Brutality - July. There will be prizes, and details are TBA.

There will be a normal MKX bracket during Brutality - July, and the power rankings will be reset.

Players will be seeded in all Brutality MKX brackets according to their power ranking. Players without a power ranking will be seeded as having zero ranking points.
