The quarterfinals and semifinals of the Street Fighter League: Pro-EUROPE 2023 have been played. If you missed the first evening of the Playoffs, find below a summary of the scores and a preview of what the Grand Final should offer!
BK ROG vs. 00NATION
The Playoffs kicked off with a much-awaited match pitting the third and fourth best-ranked teams of the regular season : BK ROG and 00NATION. And needless to say that both teams fought like tigers to get the 50 points needed to enter the semifinals. But in the end, the victory went to the Norwegians (60-20) who proved to be very difficult to defeat.
In this high-stakes match, the player who shone the most was Phenom from 00NATION. With his tough to beat Ken, he was able to take enough space and thinking time to win against Luffy. Despite his skilled Manon and great management of his Drive Gauge, the French player unfortunately fell to the ground. By forcing an opening, Phenom was able to take Luffy by surprise and thus put an end to this very close match with a Double K.O.
As a result, BK ROG’s adventure in the competition is now over and 00NATION went on to fight the British team MOUZ in semifinals. And let’s be honest, what a face-off it was!
And for one good reason : the reigning champion team also fell victim to 00NATION’s strategy and perfect knowledge of the game. With a winning score of 50 points to 0, the Norwegians proved they did not come to play around and MOUZ couldn’t stop them.
Right from the opening match pitting Veggey against Broski, 00NATION set the tone. The match-up was one of the most complex: Zangief (Veggey) Vs. JP (Broski). Thanks to an excellent reading of his opponent’s gameplay and a great precision in the use of his combos, the Norwegian player appeared as an impregnable wall and made short work of his adversary, leaving him no openings. And like a seer, Veggey anticipated Broski’s moves.
Thus, 00NATION ascends to the ultimate stage of the competition, ready to take on BMS. And they should not let their guard down since the French team ranked second last season. The format of the Grand Final doesn’t change much: the first team to reach 70 points (instead of 50 points) wins the Championship. Get ready for a contested match!
