The Colorado Regional took place last weekend at Chaos Games and More – check out the full breakdown below:
102 players descended the stairs into the underground battledome, and the tournament was underway! A large contingent of Alaskans attended, as well as several other top players vying for an invite.
The decks in Top 16 showed a wide range of strategies, with a few rogue builds like Namekian Nail and Red Frieza making the cut. After two well played matches in T4, the finals came down to Eric Melone (Orange Ginyu) against Joseph Insinna (Namekian Piccolo).
Both of the finalists exhibited great skill and commendable sportsmanship – and in the end Eric took it down 2-1! This gives Orange Ginyu its first win of the season, joining (Blue) Ginyu and Orange (Goku) respectively.
Colorado T4 Deck Lists:
- Eric Melone* – Orange Ginyu
- Joseph Insinna* – Namekian Piccolo
- Joey Walter – Black Krillin
- Jarret McBride – Black Krillin
Thanks to everyone for playing, judging, or spectating online! In more tournament news, here’s an Australian Nationals recap courtesy of Kristel Proctor:
G’day from down under! On October 10th and 11th, the Australian National Qualifiers kicked, with 83 players turning out to try their luck at grabbing one of the two lucrative invites up for grabs.
Friendships old and new were rekindled as players from six states across Australia converged on the Celtic Club in Melbourne for the two day event. We saw some great play and a vast array of decks all showcasing the talent we knew the field could produce. The old favourites of Black Krillin, Namekian Piccolo and all the colours of Ginyu were out in force, but there were also a few Cinderella stories to be told before Top Cut was made at the end of day one.
We had a young gentleman Chris, who had only taken up the game three months earlier, pilot a Black Krillin with immense skill into the Top 16. But the talk of the Swiss Rounds was Saiyan Turles, piloted by Tobye, smashing face and romping his way to a Top 8 finish. Hearts were broken as Krillin persevered in a battle for the ages in Top 8!
Coming into the crucial Top 4 matches we had;
- Fahad R. – Black Krillin
- Kuan-Ju L. – Black Ginyu
- Michael M. – Black Krillin
- Adam S. – Black Krillin
In the end, Fahad and Kuan came into the final match up with Fahad coming out on top 2-0 in an epic showdown between best mates.We could not have been more proud of all the players over the weekend, and congratulations to Fahad and Kuan. We are sure that you will do Australia proud at Worlds in December.
