Street Fighter 5 University Tournament

I bet that at some point in your life, you sat down with your friends and played fighting games like Mortal Kombat, Tekken and such. Am I right? These games used to make my friends and I completely forget about what time it is. Oh just how many times we were late for school because we were playing Mortal Kombat. But today, we’ll be talking about Street Fighter. The University Network Gaming Society is proud to organize the Street Fighter 5 tournament at Your University.

If you’ve never played Street Fighter, here’s what it’s all about

Street Fighter is a franchise of fighting video games developed and published by Capcom. The first game was released all the way back in 1987, followed by five main games and numerous spin-offs and crossovers. I’ve no need to talk about fighting games, as you probably know what it is. On the off chance that you don’t, I’ll be brief. It’s a video game that pits two players against each other in an MMA-like combat style with the goal of defeating your opponent. In addition, players also have access to special abilities with high damage that can be used against their opponent.

Street Fighter was one of the most popular eSports games. The tournaments and events were held constantly in the past. Recently the game popularity has unfortunately dwindled. However, tournaments are still held from time to time and the game lives on.

Details about our tournament

This time, we wanted to make a bigger tournament for more players. So we decided to have a total of 50 players, in 1 versus 1 brackets. Each match will consist of 3 games. Single elimination format, winner moves on. In other words, you lose one match, you’re out. Maps are selected randomly. However, the twist is that there is no time limit on games. The winner will receive exclusive Street Fighter gaming peripherals and gear, including a PC case. The two runner-ups will be rewarded with mousepads. In conclusion, start practicing if you want to win cool rewards!
