bc Dragon vs. 1L2P Burrito Voorhees

CGL NinjaKilla vs. Coach Steve
Noble Kombat vs. ISG HeeyGe0rge


Things kicked off with Sonic's D'vorah against Splash's Kung Lao. Sonic took game 1 with a clutch anti-air grab read that got him a KB and a win. Game 2 ended with a near round 2 perfect for Sonic. Game 3 was another win for Sonic, who took the set 3-0 and moved forward.

Up next, Dragon's Cetrion was against Burrito's Geras. Making read upon read, Dragon took game 1 with a time-out. Burrito was on the verge of making an insane comeback, but Dragon was able to close out game 2 with a well-timed fatal blow combo. Dragon kept on going, winning game 3 and taking the set 3-0.

Over in Loser's, Coach Steve's Jacqui and Ninjakilla's Liu Kang. Ninja won game 1 and 2, despite a great fight put up by Coach Steve. Coach Steve almost mounted an insane comeback, but a whiffed dash punch cost him game 3. Ninjakilla won the set 3-0.


Next up was Kombat's variation 3 Shang Tsung playing HeeyGe0rge's variation 3 Frost. Kombat Reptile slid his way to a game 1 victory. Ge0rge returned the favor with a fatal blow game 2 win. Kombat swapped over to Johnny Cage after the loss, but Ge0rge was able to win the next game. Facing the end of his ECT run, Kombat bet game 4 on Geras. Ge0rge closed things out, the character swap not phasing him in the slightest and won the set 3-2.

Next match was Ninjakilla's Liu Kang against Burrito's Geras. Burrito had an insanely good round 1, but Ninja made a magic pixel comeback and dropped all of his KBs in round 2 for the win. Ninja took game 2 rather quickly. Burrito got a round in game 3, but Ninja was not going down, winning the set 3-0 and moving on.

Following that up was HeeyGe0rge's Frost vs. Splash's Kung Lao. A whiffed grab in the final round of game 1 resulted in a victory for Ge0rge. Ge0rge took game 2, narrowly surviving a whiffed grab himself. Game 3 came down to a fatal blow trade in HeeyGe0rge's favor, who won the set 3-0.


Back to Winner's, we had a match-up no one has seen before: Dragon vs. Sonic - Cetrion vs. Jade. Dragon took 2 confident rounds in game 1, and won game 2 with a 450+ fatal blow combo. Down 2 games, Sonic switched to Johnny Cage and finally got a game on the board. Sonic almost mounted a full on comeback, but Dragon kept his cool and won the set 3-1.

Playing to see who would fight Sonic in Loser's finals was Ninjakilla's Liu Kang and HeeyGe0rge's Frost. Ge0rge brought it down to the wire, but Ninja came out the victor game 1. Ge0rge got a round in game 2, but Ninja, once again, came out the victor for game 2. Ninja kept that pace going and won game 3, taking the set 3-0.

Getting back into his seat, Ninjakilla's Liu Kang was against Sonic's Johnny Cage (which sent Ninja to Loser's in the first place). A close game 1 that went a round a piece came out to a victory for Ninja. Game 2 also went to Ninja, on the verge of sending Sonic home and redeeming his loss from earlier in the event. Ninja decimated Sonic's health bar in game 3, hitting them for 700 damage in 2 combos, but Sonic mounted an insane comeback to stay alive. In the last sequence of game 4, both players were at a round a piece. Sonic dropped the game winning combo, but Ninja's punish with a fatal blow was blocked and counter-punished for the loss. The final game, Sonic was looking like a full on machine, going blow for blow against Ninjakilla and coming out victorious, winning the set 3-2 and moving on to Grand Finals.


In Grand Finals, Sonic pulled out a surprise Jax pick against Dragon's Cetrion. Dragon kept it moving from their match earlier in the bracket and took a solid win game 1. Sonic went back to Johnny Cage after the loss, and the decision earned him a game 2 victory. Dragon opted not to character switch the next game and Sonic continued his streak with another win. The final game went to Sonic as well, closing things out with a well-timed punish into fatal blow and resetting the bracket 3-1.

Game 1 of the new set continued with no character swaps. Dragon regained some control for game 1, returning rounds against Sonic but ultimately losing the next game. After losing the next game as well, Dragon turned to Highborn Kitana to turn things around. Dragon finally looked dominant again, taking game 3 without much trouble and Sonic immediately made the switch to Jade. The switch decided the set, Sonic Fox won game 4, taking the set 4-1 and earning the title of ECT 2019 MK Champion.
