This past weekend at Combo Breaker 2018 in St. Charles, Illinois, the Dragon Ball FighterZ tournament served as a Last Chance Qualifier for the final spot in Beyond the Summit’s Summit of Power event, which takes place in just over a week. With Crescent Esports’ Doza and Cyclops Osaka’s Fenrich both tying for 7th place, and the remainder of the top 8 consisting of six players who had already qualified or were invited to the SoP, a 2-out-of-3 tiebreaker match was held between Doza and Fenrich. The Japanese BlazBlue god came out victorious and ensured the entire Cyclops Trinity will be competing at the Summit. With the final spot now filled, the full lineup of competitors is as follows:

The Summit of Power will take place June 8-10 in Los Angeles, California, where these 16 FighterZ will be battling it out for the lion’s share of a prize pot that currently sits at $24,326 as of this writing, with 59% of that total coming form crowdfunding from purchases at the smash.gg SoP shop. If you’d still like to purchase some limited-edition merchandise, and help increase the prize pool even further beyond its current total, which includes a chance to attend the Summit House in-person for $750, you can do so for the next 10 days at Summit of Power Compendium.

Additionally, Fantasy brackets are now live at smash.gg, with the top 5 entrants who build the most successful teams during the competition receiving some SoP swag. You can see some congratulatory tweets to CAG|Fenrich below. Details about the talent lineup have also been revealed.
