During tonight’s The Runback, Alex Valle of Level|Up Series jumped on the stream to drop some information on the team that will represent the weekly tournament series during a special Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 exhibition at SoCal Regionals 2014. This news comes after doing the same last week for Wednesday Night Fights’ own group of players, who will take part in a similar Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 show match at the event.
In regards to how they chose the participants, Valle mentioned that they paid close attention to the series’ respective ranking points, and wanted consistent top placers to be given the chance to compete. He also has very high expectations for Team WNF in particular, saying that he would favor them against any team in the country.
The full rosters for both teams have been included below.[column size=”one-half”]
Wednesday Night Fights (AE 2012)
- NGL.MCZ|Marq Teddy
- Snake Eyez
The Runback (UMvC3)
- EG|Justin Wong (Team Captain)
Who they’ll be playing, however, is another matter. While we don’t know the full teams, Valle did announce the Northern California captains: Evil Geniuses’ PR Balrog will take the lead in AE 2012, while Filipino Champ of compLexity Gaming is set to head the UMvC3 squad.
As of now, Champ will be joined by Neo and PR Balrog on the Marvel team, with two more players to be decided.
Valle also teased the possibility of exhibitions outside these two matchups, so stay tuned for more announcements in the future.
What do you think? Will Wednesday Night Fights provide another dominant performance, or will their northern counterparts walk away with the win this year? Let us know in the comments!
SoCal Regionals 2014 is scheduled to take place from February 28 to March 2 in Irvine, California.
