Yesterday, ELEAGUE announced its latest ruling for the upcoming Injustice 2 World Championships. Despite protecting Earthrealm for centuries, this will be one event that the god of thunder Raiden will be unable to participate in.
Releasing earlier this week as part of Fighter Pack 2 and in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Mortal Kombat, Raiden will officially be banned from the entirety of ELEAGUE, including the event’s Last Chance Qualifiers. This is common practice regarding the usage of new DLC characters in competitive circuits, as players may have not had adequate time to prepare for the match-up and game-breaking bugs may still exist for newer characters.
