About Me

Hey guys, the name's Raptor. I'm a former Pro fighting game player. I competed in fighting games, specifically for the game Mortal Kombat X, from 2015 to 2017. During my time competing, I've placed in multiple tournament top 8s and was an ESL Season 3 Finalist.

While I didn’t compete for long, I’ve actually been playing fighting games since 2011, starting with Mortal Kombat 9. I’ve played every NetherRealm Studios title since then, including the Injustice series. Ever since then, I’ve learned a lot about fighting games and how they work. Not only do I love playing fighting games, but I also love breaking them down and sharing that knowledge with others. Currently, I am a content creator for Mortal Kombat and Injustice, creating YouTube videos as well as the Kombat Akademy strategy guide website.

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a subscription-based website that allows my fans to support me and my content. In return, those who become a Patron will gain access to exclusive content that will help them become better fighting game players.

I created this Patreon in hopes of helping others improve at fighting games. If you wish to support me, feel free to join the Patreon!
