One of the premier esports teams in the world of first-person shooters, OpTic Gaming have yet to properly set foot in the crucible of fighting games. That’s about to change this June, as the organization is running an event called OpTic Arena as part of A-Kon in Fort Worth, Texas. Running from June 8th-10th, this event will host tournaments for Dragon Ball FighterZ, Super Smash Bros. Melee and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, with each game getting a $5000 pot bonus.

Along with the main three events, OpTic Arena will have several exhibition matches, a 24-hour gaming lounge for those who want to play through the night, as well as a bunch of other fun stuff that is yet to be announced. If you are interested in attending, registration is now available over on smash.gg, with a ticket also getting you access to A-Kon in the Fort Worth Convention Center.

Besides this event, OpTiC looks to be scouting out their first FGC player. A recent Tweet from NuckleDu showed the Capcom Cup 2016 champion hanging out at the OpTic Gaming offices — interesting considering Du’s recent split from Team Liquid.
