DreamHack Montreal 2017 Results

Gaming article by Matthew Fetrow on September 11, 2017 at 1:00 PM

DreamHack Montreal 2017 has concluded, and is part of the Capcom Pro Tour's set of North American regional events. Of course, like with other DreamHacks, it's also home to some major Smash tournaments. Many big names from the two scenes will be coming from every corner of Canada and the United States to earn big money ($10,000 prize pool for each of the three games) and, in Street Fighter V's case, CPT points necessary to get into Capcom Cup, which is closing in fast.

Streaming was handled by DreamHack Fighters and DreamHack Smash on Twitch. As usual, players will be listed in “[sponsor/team name] | [player name] [[characters used]]” format. Links to brackets will be provided at the end of each top 8 list.


Street Fighter V

  • 1. Liquid | NuckleDu [Guile, R. Mika, Birdie]
  • 2. Echo Fox | Justin Wong [Karin, Menat]
  • 3. EG | K-Brad [Cammy, Karin]
  • 4. Alienware | Nemo [Urien]
  • 5. Splyce | Filipino Champ [Dhalsim]
  • 5. L.E.S [M. Bison]
  • 7. STDx | Sin [M. Bison]
  • 7. John Takeuchi [Rashid]

NuckleDu continues to be a force to be reckoned with, dominating his opposition handily throughout the tournament. After winning, he even graciously decided to donate his cash winnings to Hurricane Irma relief. As a Florida resident, no doubt it's something that's important to him. Immediately behind are the two usual suspects on might expect in top 8 for a North American event, Justin Wong and K-Brad, and immediately behind them is Nemo, who has been dedicating time to playing abroad since beginning his sabbatical to concentrate on competing.


Super Smash Bros for Wii U

  • 1. EMG | n0ne [Captain Falcon]
  • 2. Kage [Ganondorf, Captain Falcon]
  • 3. Liquid | ChuDat [Ice Climbers, Young Link]

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.
