As the 2018 Injustice 2 Pro Series continues towards the endgame, one mysterious dark cloud continued to hang over the heads of competitors and fans alike: a mysterious European Program that would determine one of the 16 spots in October’s IPS Finals, that until recently had remained a question mark on the Tour. Earlier this month, the curtain was finally lifted on the proceedings — which to the delight of many more fighters outside of the United States, will encompass several more countries as the Injustice 2 Intercontinental Championship.
The first of four Qualifying online tournaments was held this past weekend, specifically for warriors in Australia and New Zealand. In the end, 18 players battled to determine which two would go on to represent the Land Down Under in the final 8-player IC Championship Finals in Vienna, Austria on October 7th, to decide the undisputed Intercontinental Champion, who will qualify for the IPS Finals later that month.
