Fun in a circle of friends — a treasure of the fighting games competition
We at DashFight love to highlight huge esports events. The level of excitement explodes emotions and motivates us play more and practice more. But you know, fighting games are not only about top players and big prize pools.
There is a competitive dimension that (arguably) made this genre as popular as it is now. It’s when people gather in a friendly environment — to play fighting games and have fun. You might not see as many breathtaking moments here as at Evo finals, but the atmosphere opens the community’s unrepeatable beauty.
Okizeme Countdown! in Canada was that sort of event. Sure, the participants fought each other on the virtual stages. But also, it was a friendly New Year celebration. Do you enjoy such parties?
Why not watch some matches and absorb the festive mood? Here are nine Grand Finals from Okizeme Countdown!
Soulcalibur 6 at Okizeme Countdown! | Grand Final
Tekken 7 at Okizeme Countdown! | Grand Final
Guilty Gear -Strive- at Okizeme Countdown! | Grand Final
DBFZ at Okizeme Countdown! | Grand Final
GranBlue Fantasy Versus at Okizeme Countdown! | Grand Final
Melty Blood: Type Lumina at Okizeme Countdown! | Grand Final
BlazBlue Centralfiction at Okizeme Countdown! | Grand Final
Under Night In-Birth at Okizeme Countdown! | Grand Final
Ultra Street Fighter 4 at Okizeme Countdown! | Grand Final
That might seem like a lot of Grand Finals, but it’s entertaining and educational to check out what other players are capable of in your favorite game. And it’s helpful to see what a fresh (for you) title is all about — to decide whether to dive into it or not.
Anyways, esports tournaments have kind of a slow start at the beginning of this year (like every year), but much excitement is right around the corner in 2023. Stay tuned to DashFight to feel the vibes and be in the whirl of fighting games events.
And while the esports face of the FGC is recovering after the celebration, our dramas are already here. We have new controversies around Capcom Cup. And the community is still trying to figure out what’s going on with NYCFurby.
