The CONQUEST continues!
This weekend is another double-header for the RED BULL CONQUEST circuit: this time Dallas, TX and Saint Paul, MN will be the arenas for two more qualifier events. The action starts on Saturday, July 14th. Hopefuls will test their skill 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 this weekend with the search for Dallas and Saint Paul’s top fighting game competitors! On Saturday, July 14, the two cities will play host to fighting game enthusiasts as they battle it out to determine each city’s top players in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, TEKKEN 7 and Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2. The winners from each city will earn the title as their region’s best, and will travel to Washington, D.C. this November to compete in the Red Bull Conquest National Finals.
In addition to the rousing competition, both cities will have notable FGC competitors in attendance. Being no stranger to the fighting game scene, it’s no wonder that some of Saint Paul’s finest will be coming out to play. Among them are Street Fighter champ Joe “Mo-Joe” Porter, winner of Chicago’s Frosty Faustings X in Chicago last January, and “Mahreen,” known for her show-stopping cosplay and cutthroat SFV moves. Meanwhile in Dallas, avid Street Fighter athlete and part-time esports commentator Jarret “Magneto1080p” Austin will be in attendance.
