Flipsid3 Tactics has added Angel “Lilo24k” Cruz to their Fighting Game Division roster. He will be joining 2016 Evo World Champion Darnell “HollywoodSleep” Waller and Allan “LuCkyL0opZ” Paris. Lilo24k is a Balrog main from the Dominican Republic and his recent accomplishments include placing 5th at the second Capcom Pro Tour Latin America Online Event and placing 7th at Defend the North 2018 in July. His first event under the Flipsid3 banner will be the North American LAN Finals in Washington, D.C.
Earlier this year, Antwan “Alucard” Ortiz and Thomas “Brolynho”Proença both left Flipsid3 Tactics. The departure of the two well-accomplished SFV players left a void in Flipsid3’s Fighting Game Division roster. But no longer — the Dominican Republic has proven itself to be a powerful region for SFV, with RISE|MenaRD and RISE|Caba participating in this year’s Capcom Cup. All of us here at Shoryuken have high hopes for the young Dominican Balrog player.
