The second day of play at GVO’s Round II: Tokyo Edition went nearly as planned. But not before a heated 2-man race that saw the fav struggle in the first half of fights. With that said, here’s the fourth piece of group action from GodHatesGeeks’ second ever fighting game tournament, including videos, results and reactions… Get ready: the GVO playoffs are almost here.
GROUP D – HYPER
Group D(eez Nutz) had some nail-biting scraps early on as a warmed up Jason Bud cruised to several victories in our DLC-only rounds of Dragon Ball FighterZ (KEFLA FTW!!!) and Mortal Kombat 11. But once we made the Switch from Xbox One Mixer action to PlayStation 4 on Twitch.. the tide turned for Bud for the worst.
Group D’s Stage 3 saw Dana Keels shred his fellow gamers in GVO’s first showcase of Samurai Shodown. Even with underdog Jacob Clarke getting a much-needed victory to avoid falling to the bottom in the tournament’s win total, Dana’s proficiency with the PS sticks proved too much. He wouldn’t lose the rest of the way, winning 4 in a row in the Marvel vs. Capcom main evento and proving too much in the SFV bonus round. D’s dominance allowed the 16-win GVO host — and yours Moody truly — to slip into the wild card. Thanks, D.
