WB8 Feature Match: 7L (Green Arrow) vs JRosa (Batgirl)

This match went down in pools.,Gets really tense at the end, that’s why I chose to upload it. For my first IGAU major I was blown away by how many players were cool people too. I’d like to give a special shoutout to PTH (Pallet Town Heroes) for being awesome.

Thanks for watching – ChiefGief

Foreverking Shows Dominance at Kumite In Tennessee

KING

Foreverking remained in winners bracket the entire tournament beating GGA’s Max, a recent addition to the team. The winner received a sweet Doomsday trophy as well. Does this solidify Foreverking as the “best” Batman? I believe that is yet to be seen.

Congratulations to both Pig Of The Hut and EliteGoomba of Atlanta Kombat (AK) for making top 8 with Zod and Wonder Woman, respectively. Results like these are proving that 1.6 has opened up a lot of possibilities for the game. We also saw an impressive outing from AK’s Harold, a running man stance happy Flash player.

Shoutouts are due to Pandaxgaming for dedicating so much stream time to Injustice on Saturday. Be sure to follow them at twitch.tv/pandaxgaming

At KIT14, all top 8 matches were ran in best 3/5 games instead of the traditional 2/3 (excluding WF LF and GF). In my opinion, this is a good trend that should continue. I am certainly not seasoned in IGAU, but I know that stages can seriously alter matchups, and 3/5 format allows for more variety.

This is my first article on KN, so feel free to criticize me, or compliment me. :)

Top 8

7th Place : GGA Pimpimjim (Lex Luthor, Hawkgirl) & GGA 16bit (Catwoman)

5th Place: AK Elitegoomba (Wonder Woman, Superman) & AK EMPR Pigofthehut (Zod)

4th Place: AK Harold (Flash)

3rd Place: AK EMPR Saltface (Harley Quinn)

2nd Place: GGA Max (Bane)

1st Place: GEC Foreverking (Batman)

Thanks for reading – ChiefGief
