WePlay Dragon Temple is a Mortal Kombat 11 tournament with 14 pro players competing for a $60,000 prize pool.
Make sure to catch all the WePlay Dragon Temple action live on the official Twitch Channel here when it begins at 1 PM CST/ 8 PM CET. The Group Stage will run from December 11-12, followed by the Playoffs on December 13.
On the first day of WePlay Dragon Temple, what fans thought would be a conventional 1v1 group stage turned into a 2v2 mini-event instead. Think of the side attraction, Poket Klash, as a warmup tournament in which the players could experiment while showing off what they have, and boy did they deliver.
WePlay Dragon Temple is a Mortal Kombat 11 tournament with 14 pro players competing for a $60,000 prize pool. The main event consists of two stages, with the first being a best-of-three round-robin group stage and a single-elimination best-of-five playoff bracket. However, yesterday, WePlay Esports surprised us all with the side tournament, Poket Klash.

Beginning with a round-robin group stage of its own, all 14 players were assembled into pairs for the side attraction, with the top four teams advancing to the final stage. Tournament favorites, A F0xy Grampa and Tekken Master were both paired with Hayatei and Grr respectively, while LAN newcomer AVrik joined DizzyTT and the first lady of the show, Infinitii, with Foreverking.

The dangerous duo of Grr & TekkenMaster dominated the group stage by winning every one of their games. Konqueror & 2ez followed close behind with two losses out of six matches, while A F0xy Grampa & Hayatei had three losses in third place, just like AVirk & DizzyTT.
In the Playoff, Grr & Tekken Master continued their dominance by defeating Konqueror & 2ez, only to be joined in the finals by AVirk & DizzyTT, who had sent the duo of A F0xy Grampa & Hayatei to the third-place match.
After fierce competition, both teams in the finals secured two matches each, and near the end of the final match, Tekken Master was able to take AVrik’s health down to 10%. It looked like we already had our victor, but AVrik wasn’t having any of that. He quickly turned the table on Tekken Master, winning the first offline Mortal Kombat tournament he has ever attended.
