A lot of great play took place at Canada Cup’s throwdown in Calgary earlier in May.
Canada Cup Masters Series — which took place a couple of weeks ago in Calgary, Alberta — saw some spectacular gameplay from some of the best competitors in two of the top titles today; American killers came up to challenge the Canadian locals in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, and CO|GO1 showed up to face Canada’s Teemo in a Dragon Ball FighterZ FT10, then going on to dominate the DBFZ brackets until a grand final against EG|NYChrisG.
Team Sp00ky’s Sabin was on site to offer streaming services, and much of the action made it to Canada Cup Gaming’s YouTube channel for our enjoyment. If you’re into seeing a lot of high-level Street Fighter V gameplay, Masters Series really delivered by switching the top 8 to a round-robin format, resulting in Echo Fox’s Punk and Justin Wong, Evil Geniuses’ Ricki Ortiz and NYChrisG, Ghost|KBrad, LPN, CYG BST|PR_Balrog, and Canada’s own CeroBlast facing off in FT5 sets against each other for literally hours of grueling SFVAE battle. We got to see Wong’s impressive Falke, Ortiz’s solid Chun-Li, and PR_Balrog’s deadly Akuma — and much more. Check out a selection below, and head to CCG’s channel to see them all!
One of the highlights of the weekend was of course the FT10 between GO1 and Teemo in Dragon Ball FighterZ:
Teemo took his loss in stride, and could be seen working on his DBFZ game by playing GO1 in casuals throughout the event; they faced each other again in DBFZ top 8, along with NYChrisG and Punk — and there’s some very impressive showings from local players in marvtronic, MegaMikeX, and Espard, too! Here again is a sampling of the action:
There are many more videos from the event posted on YouTube by CCG, including team battles, and some from the Ultra Street Fighter IV event as well. Check out the playlists below, or head over to CanadaCupGaming on YouTube to see the entire selection.
