Check below for a full breakdown of Michigian, as well as Awakening preview dates!
1. Michigan Recap
The Michigan Regional took place last weekend at Eternal Games in Warren, MI – marking the halfway point of this season! 98 players were in attendance, with Red comprising nearly a third of the field. Leading up to this event, the metagame saw Cooler jockey for top position amongst the well-proven Villain triumvirate from Vengeance. While Broly and Cooler showed up in full force, Android 13 was entirely absent from the Top Cut. The elimination rounds also contained multiple Yamcha and Gohan builds, both capable of thriving in an aggro environment.
After a T4 featuring Namekian Restored Gohan, the finals came down to Orange Adaptive Yamcha (Brandon Suchan) against Red Ruthless Broly (Eric Jennings). In the end, Eric was able to secure the victory – giving Broly another Regional win (and the first time paired with Red)! Congratulations to Eric and Brandon for their qualification into Worlds, and a special shoutout to the prize support from Eternal Games!
The T4 lists:
- Eric Jennings* – Red Ruthless Broly
- Brandon Suchan* – Orange Adaptive Yamcha
- Nick Wasinski – Saiyan Empowered Broly
- Brian Lupfer – Namekian Restored Gohan
The Super Elite rankings have been updated, with Ryan Lambdin moving into the exclusive 4-point tier.
