The CONQUEST continues!

This weekend is a double-header of sorts for the RED BULL CONQUEST circuit: Orlando, Florida will play host to the next big qualifier event, while the online qualifier is being held as well. The fight in Orlando begins on Saturday, August 11th, while the online battle will unfold on Sunday, August 12th; players will put their skills to the test in Street Fighter V, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, and Tekken 7 to earn qualifying spots for the National Finals in Washington, D.C. in November. From the press release:

Red Bull Conquest continues the search for America’s best fighting game competitors in Orlando on Saturday, August 11 and during a special Online qualifier on Sunday, August 12. As part of this national fighting game tournament, players will battle it out in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, TEKKEN 7 and Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 to determine who will be crowned their regions’ top fighters. The winners (3 from Orlando and 3 from the Online qualifier) will travel to Washington D.C. this November to compete at the Red Bull Conquest National Finals and to see if they have what it takes to be crowned National Champions.

During the Orlando stream, viewers will be able to watch some of Florida’s top fighting game athletes go head-to-head against each other, including popular Street Fighter athlete CJ Truth, who recently placed 4th at Toryuken and 9th at CEO 2018. 12-year-old Tekken prodigy, King Rey Jr, will also be competing this weekend in an attempt to take home the crown. Meanwhile, during the Online qualifier stream, the hosts will walk viewers through Red Bull Conquest so far, looking at past and future events and how the National Finals might play out in November.

Red Bull has recruited a crew of FGC experts to provide commentary during the events, with YipeS sharing insight from the Orlando qualifier, and Vicious and Tasty Steve keeping fans in the loop during the Online qualifier.
