Introducing the Mortal Kombat 11 tournament WePlay Dragon Temple

$60,000 conquest at the WePlay Esports Arena Kyiv

Join the battle for glory of WePlay Dragon Temple, the first fighting game tournament from WePlay Esports media holding company.

You will be able to follow the action from December 10 - 13 as the best players will test their might on the fiery stage at WePlay Esports Arena Kyiv, with $60,000 on the line - the FIRST ever event in the custom build arena. 

The contest of champions will consist of two phases, the Group Stage and Playoffs. The former will have all teams split between two round-robin groups, with players required to win two out of three sets against their opponent. The latter phase will see the top four contestants from each group advance to the Playoffs, where they will battle it out in a Best-of-5 double-elimination bracket.

As an ex-professional player back in Virtua Fighter, I have always had a real passion for fighting games. When I first learned about the event, I was thrilled to get the chance to be involved. It’s awesome how WePlay Esports plan to bring us Christmas early with the Dragon Temple tournament. Together with the team we will do everything possible to make this one of the best Mortal Kombat events you have ever seen!
