SoCal Regionals in Anaheim, California is one of the biggest fighting games events in a state that’s already loaded with top talent. As part of the Capcom Pro Tour as a premier event and Tekken World Tour as a masters event, a lot is at stake for two of the biggest scenes in the FGC, especially with the season winding down to a close.

In addition to the headlining games, tournaments were held for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Injustice 2, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Under Night In-Birth EXE Late[st], The King of Fighters XIV, Killer Instinct, Pokken Tournament, and Super Street Fighter II Turbo. There was also a special 3-on-3 exhibition tournament held for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.

Streaming was handled by Capcom Fighters, Tekken, Netherrealm, LevelUp Live, LevelUp Live2, and EnnyMura, all on Twitch. As usual, players will be listed in “[sponsor/team name] | [player name] [[characters used]]” format. Brackets (via Smash.gg) for each tournament will be listed at the end of each top 8 list.

Matthew Fetrow

I've been playing video games since 4 years of age, and finally began to deeply invest myself into the world of fighting games in 2015 after many off-and-on encounters with games inside the genre. I have a preference for 3D fighters, but also enjoy Street Fighter, King of Fighters, and some airdashers. I'm also a big fan of RPGs and shmups.
