Another Queen City Showdown is in the books and some of our frequent competitors showed they still have what it takes to get the job done, but several newcomers left their stamp on this one as well.
Vult has now won back-to-back Queen City Showdowns, taking down Dimmadome in Winners Finals and Glight in Grands. Vult only dropped a single game all day, just like his run in November.
Glight, while taking second in Smash, shined in the FGC brackets and took home the Appalachian Fighting Game Championship belt. Glight took first in Strive and third in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
Newcomers for Smash included, Dimmadome (3rd), MikesPepsi (9th), Pearly (13th), Mute (13th) and Jam (17th).
This was the first Queen City Showdown to include games other than Smash since Queen City Showdown 6, when the series featured Dragon Ball FighterZ and Street Fighter III: Third Strike tournaments.
As mentioned earlier, Glight took first place in Strive, but he had to fend off a couple of newcomers. Bacon (Hazard) made his Queen City Showdown debut in Strive, taking second place with two losses to Glight. Mute, also making his QCS debut, took third.
Here is a look at our top-four for Guilty Gear -Strive- at Queen City Showdown: Season’s Beatings.
Another newcomer showed out in the Dragon Ball FighterZ bracket. Isoamwhite was new to Hazard and QCS, but is widely regarded as the best in the region at DBFZ. He made a statement and lived up to the hype by breezing through the bracket without dropping a single game, taking home the Trolli pot bonus, and heading back to Lexington.
Here is a look at the Dragon Ball FighterZ results.
We capped off the night with our first-ever Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 bracket.
RayLee made his return to competitive play and went on a second-place run, but could not fend off Barker in winners’ finals or grand finals.
Barker failed to drop a game in his run through the bracket, finishing off three sets with a 3-0 count.
