Taiwan Fighter Major 2017 Results

Gaming article by Matthew Fetrow on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - 11:43

Taiwan Fighter Major 2017 is not only a part of the Capcom Pro Tour as the final premiere event taking place in Asia, it's also a part of the Tekken World Tour as the final Master event for the region, too. This means that big names and lots of talent from both scenes are going to be crammed into this one event.

In addition to the two headlining games, tournaments were also held for The King of Fighters XIV and Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2. Streaming for the event was handled by Capcom Fighters, Tekken, TW Fighter, and Taiwan Fighting Festival, all on Twitch.

As usual, players will be listed in “[sponsor/team name] | [player name]” format, with their used characters in brackets. If you'd like to view the full brackets for each tournament yourself, you can do so here, on Challonge.

Street Fighter V

  • 1. CO | Dogura [Urien]
  • 2. GGP | Kazunoko [Cammy]

  • 5. YBK | Daikoku Go [Birdie]
  • 7. Echo Fox | Tokido [Akuma]
  • 7. Talon | Hotdog29 [M. Bison]
Dogura pulls off not only his first CPT premiere event win, but his first CPT win, period, after gaining the upper hand on Kazunoko, who he coincidentally lost to in the grand final of Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 earlier in the event.

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.
