There can be only one. The Mortal Kombat tournament at WePlay Esports Arena Kyiv has begun.

Despite the pandemic, lockdown, and economic crisis, the WePlay Esports media holding finished the construction of the WePlay Esports Arena Kyiv and organized the company's first international fighting tournament called WePlay Dragon Temple.

Unfortunately, the tournament is held with no live audience, no spectators and fans, but you can still watch it on Twitch.

The organizers chose the most recent version of Mortal Kombat 11 for this competition. There are 14 of the best professional players hailing from different parts of the world, and countries like Canada to Azerbaijan.

WePlay Dragon Temple started from the group stage in a round-robin system in the best-of-three format, as the players divided into two groups will face each other, fighting to two victories. Eight participants will make it to the next round, where a double elimination bracket is used (elimination after two defeats). The finals will be played in the best-of-five format, up to three wins.

To keep fans hooked on their screens, the tournament will be hosted by Kyle Friedman, analyzed by Mr. Aquaman, Kitana Prime, and Big D, and ironically commented by Ketchup, Mustard, Mitsuownes, and HBTWarrior.

“Our new arena, a new esport title, and the audience, WePlay Esports continues to give fans even more emotions from the battles of their favorite players and extraordinary show by our team. This is a great experience for the community and additional opportunities for our partners,” says Oleh Humeniuk, WePlay Esports CEO.

The battles at WePlay Dragon Temple will last four days until December 13. Absolutely all matches can be watched on the tournament's Twitch channel. The official media partner of the tournament is the DashFight portal.
