If you’re still recovering from the craziness of Evo 2014, you may be interested in checking out a single-day event being ran this weekend in Europe. DreamHack’s Valencia tournament series returns this year for another showing, bringing with it competition in Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Some of the players in attendance include Evo 2014 champion Olivier “Luffy” Hay of Meltdown, Dignitas’ Ryan Hart, Cuong “Cuongster” Cao of CDV Spirit, and more.
As a ranking tournament on the Capcom Pro Tour, DreamHack Valencia 2014 will give players the opportunity to compete for those precious points that decide their placement in the overall standings. While the rankings are currently dominated by players from the United States and Japan, this event should give regional players a great shot at making headway if they place in the top sixteen.
High placers can also look forward to earning a cut of the €3000 (~$4057 USD) prize pool.
You’ll find the live broadcast, courtesy of ARMSHOUSE’s James “WorstGiefEVER” Bardolph, below, so be sure to tune in.
