    What is the reason behind NA/EU cups being held on Xbox One? Do you realize how many participants you are discriminating by doing this? The majority of people that will play MK X has Ps4 and PC.

    You should at least make PC cups for all regions.

    Yeah I really hope they change this. I have a feeling they eventually will. I bet Microsoft just payed them to do this. Ed Boon will listen eventually.
    Can someone assure me on how to participate in the Mk X cup?
