Last Friday, the final leg of the Injustice 2 Championship Series, the Injustice 2 ELEAGUE, kicked off with play in Group A. Eight of the world’s best Injustice 2 players descended upon Atlanta, Georgia to compete inside the ELEAGUE Arena. Players were gathered from the 2017 Injustice 2 Pro Series Finals, GameStop Hometown Heroes, Liga Latina, the Path to Pro Series, as well as a Last Chance Qualifier. They fought to earn one of two coveted spots in the Championship Round where they will compete with the top two players from Group B, in order to determine the ELEAGUE Injustice 2 World Champion and overall winner of the Injustice 2 Championship Series, with a whopping $250,000 up for grabs.
The players of Group A were as follows:
- Echo Fox|Sonic Fox
- Allegiance| Dragon
- F3|DR Gross
Qualified for finals: Allegiance|Dragon (Black Adam)
Qualified for finals: Circa|ForeverKing (Batman)
3. FOX|SonicFox (Red Hood, Captain Cold, Deadshot)
4. Nubcakes (Batman)
5. F3|DR Gross (Green Lantern, Aquaman, Black Adam)
5. BC|HoneyBee (The Flash)
7. VX|HeeyGe0rge (Blue Beetle, Joker)
7. Bambooka (Superman)
Following the conclusion of that thrilling Group A — that saw undeniable favorite Echo Fox|Sonic Fox double-jeopardied by Circa|ForeverKing — the Injustice 2 ELEAGUE continues with Group B play tonight, and we now know what the lineup of first round matches will be.
First, we’ll see runner-up of the 2017 Injustice 2 Pro Series Finals, Noble|Semiij bring his Catwoman into battle against the winner of the Last Chance Qualifier, the U.K.’s PXP|A Foxy Grampa, who wields an extremely potent Deadshot. Next up, NASAR|Tekken Master will take on Vertex|Killer Xinok, who placed 49th at Evo, 2nd at Fight In Rio, and most recently picked up 1st-place victories at TRETA 2017 and the Liga Latina Finals. Then, Panda Global’s Hayatei will take on GameStop Hometown Heroes winner Emperor_Knicks, in a unique battle of Robin vs. Darkseid. Finally, Echo Fox|Theo will face HappyPow, a French Flash, Batman and Black Adam player who is coming off of getting 13th at viennality and finishing 7th at VSFighting7.
The stakes could not be higher for these eight individuals, as not only will they be competing for the lion’s share of the prize money, but only two of them can advance to the Championship Round, alongside Allegiance|Dragon and Circa|ForeverKing. You can see a tweet with the full brackets below.
