NorCal Regionals Recap

Tue 18th Apr 2017 - 10:48pm

Through April 14th and 16th, in Sacramento, California, the premier Norcal Regionals 2017 tournament took place. Top tier players in the northern region of California and even beyond, came together at this time to compete for a championship title for a variety of games. Two of Circa eSports’ own players Long “LPN” Nguyen and Gabriel “Jibrill” Lam, both played extremely well and performed to their best. LPN placed an amazing 5th for Street Fighter V, making up to Top 8 and beating out threating players such as Mago in a 2-0 victory. Jibrill also placed a hard earned 5th for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, likewise making it Top 8 and eliminating Balrog, a hardened veteran of the UMVC3 competitive scene, in a smashing 3-1 win. Both players accomplished huge feats at NCR 2017, their achievements only further establish their status as top level players in their respective video games. We hope to see both LPN and Jibrill continue to make tremendous strides in their careers and to keep playing the best they can.
