To keep players fired up at these events, FGC commentators Yipes, Persia, Vicious, and Tasty Steve are signed on to be “on-the-ground ambassadors” for these games —  hosting, streaming, and bringing their FGC expertise to the tournaments. At least one of them will be in attendance at all of the regional events, and expect them all to be on-site at the Washington D.C. National Final and Last Chance Qualifier in November.
