This week we got a small, but meaty list of FGC events. Heavy hitters are flying and/or rafting they’re way to jolly ol’ England, Mexican TO’s find an ingenious way to increase attendants, the “north” is supposedly under attack, and we have a lot of Counter Strike, that’s including female counter strike teams squaring off.
A premier event for multiple fighting games over in Birmingham, England. A lot of big names in attendents. Including Sonicfox, Go1, JeonDDing, Saint, kkokkoma, Super Akouma, and many more. So I am gonna be expecting some good ass Tekken. I heard recently that Sonicfox plays Lucky Chloe (Because of course he does). Shame he didn’t sign up for Tekken, but maybe one day I’ll get to see what he’s got.
Yes I know that the schedule below is saying that the Electric Dojo is streaming two events at once. I’ve attempted to contact them, and AceKingOffsuit on twitter informed me that once its clarified, he’ll produce his signature schedules for it. When he does, I’ll place them here.
Note: Remember that the Capcomfighters twitch channel only lets subscribers watch VODs.
AceKingOffsuit went ahead and made a schedule. Electric Dojo still needs to get their shit together.
Smash Factor 7
A lot of high level Smash players are headed to Heroica Puebla de Zaragoza, Pueblo City, Mexico, this weekend for Smash Factor 7. Armada is gonna be a long way from home for this one. Why is he coming all this way for this event? I’m not saying it’s because Smash Factor 7 is being sponsored by Hooters Mexico. I’m not saying that at all. But this tweet sums up the general response to the announcement quite nicely.
Unfortunately the smash.gg page is in Spanish.
Which means the announcers might speak Spanish. I have confirmation that the streams are in English. Why they didn’t make an English section on the smash.gg page is beyond me and probably beyond their own comprehension as well.
This is 3 day event from Friday to Sunday. The schedule provided is not a stream event. In fact the schedule and stream links were posted separately on different platforms. They’re really making the viewers work for this one. The schedule isn’t even a streaming schedule. So keep an eye on those twitch channels.
Defend The North 2018
Over in New York City, we have Defend the North 2018. Touted as being July’s only Capcom Pro Tour event in North America, heavy hitters like Nuckledu and Punk will be in attendants for Street Fighter V. Almost 500 people have signed up spread across a very long list of games.
Eleague CS:GO Premier 2018
Eleague’s second Counter Strike event of the year. 8 teams have been invited, to compete over the course of 9 days, over a 1 million dollar prize pool.The games start this Saturday and continue throughout the week. The games end on Sunday of next week.
Start Times: (Next day in red)
GIRLGAMER Esports Festival 2018
I know that there are female leagues of CS:GO but I never see them being advertised anywhere. I’ve always been curious to see how differently they might play from the men and if there’s really any reason to have separate leagues. Maybe the separation isn’t by design, but I’d still like to see for myself. Unfortunately I could only find the link of where it’ll all be streamed, but no schedule or start time. The website just says: “More information soon”.
This tournament is actually part of a larger event called “Girl Gamer Esports Festival”. They’re also holding a League of Legends tournament, and a Clash Royal Tournament. But I’ll be honest, I don’t know what that last one is.
FACEIT Major 2018 Asia Minor
This event has been going on throughout the week and it all comes to an end tomorrow with the losers finals, and the grand finals. The winner and the runner-ups get a fist full of cash and they qualify for the FACEIT Major: London 2018.
