    After an incredible two weeks, of possibly the most hype Injustice 2 tournaments yet, the Playoffs are quickly approaching.

    Today, ELEAGUE have announced what the bracket for the Playoffs will be. And it probably won't come to much of a surprise, that each competitor who made it out of their group in winner's (Dragon and Tekken Master) will face the competitor who made it out of the other pool in loser's (F0xy and Forever King).

    You can see their announcement tweet below, as well as a couple of screenshots from their awesome gif.


    Be sure to tune in Friday at 10 PM EST.

      Twitch still takes commercial breaks, so we might as well all watch it on TBS to support national broadcasting of our favorite sport.

      Prefatory Note: Far be it from a scrub like me to question the ability of any of these World Champion finalists. They are all awesome and would 10-0 me while they had the flu. I'm just giving commentary. What is so hype about this event is that no one would be surprised if either of these four gentlemen, @Dragon_FGC @A F0xy Grampa @ForeverKing or Tekken Master won. So, I just humbly put out for those who have not followed this entire season like I have:



      Why he could lose: An argument could be that he had "easy" brackets to win the EVO Championship and "easy" brackets (not fighting @SonicFox5000) in Group A to get there. He admitted in an interview that his EVO Champ path was pretty easy thanks to random bracketing and other events. Plus, he is the one with the target on his back that everyone will be studying, knowing he is the one to beat. One could also say he doesn't quite have as much of an unpredictable factor going as previous champs.

      Why he can win: It is hard to discount the EVO Champ. His definition of an "easy" bracket is beating people that would body 99% of us. The fact that he could crush so many phenomenal players and leave a trail in his wake and then go get a taco cannot be ignored. Dragon has dominated this season. Plus, he is not afraid to play mechanically boring. It is easy to say, "I will hang back and wait for my opponent to make a mistake that I will capitalize on," but doing it as well as Dragon does is another thing altogether. One minute his opponent has him down half a life bar, the next minute the opponent is clashing because they only have half of their last life bar. He can hang back, even lose the first game, and then just read the heck out of his opponent.

      Summary: Two words sum up Dragon's play - Boring and Winning. A Terminator not afraid to hear boos from the crowd while he takes home the gold. Las Vegas odds-makers would have to make the Kid from Delaware the favorite, much to the chagrin of the NRS scene that likes flashy play. Yet, if there are any three players that can find the chinks in his defensive armor, it is his three competitors.



      Why he could lose: For the man who took second at the last EVO, this season was not a rose garden. TM had some bad losses, particularly earlier in the season. By his own account, TM does not get a lot of competitive play in Bahrain but has to play out a lot of matches in his head, while competitors have big local scenes to draw from. Plus, the nerf of Atrocitus really seemed to throw him off his game.

      Why he could win: Well, here he is, in the top 4. TM must have learned a lot from the competitions he did do and being in Winner's Bracket in Group B took tremendous skill. @hayatei Semiij and other amazing competitors were taken down by TM.

      Summary: Early in the season, TM seemed like Injustice 2 just might not be his game, but he caught his wind at just the right time, adapted, and has proven that last year's EVO was not a fluke. He's always cool as a cucumber, but will playing games in your head be enough or is he just that good? Even if Atrocitus was nerfed, with the right reads and execution he can do some serious damage, and TM can definitely read and execute! No one would be surprised if he won it all.



      Why he could lose: While he had some good wins, FG still had to make it in through the last-ditch tournament to qualify. Plus, two of his main competitors are great players with high damage capacity, while FG likes characters who are more mobile, flashy, and lower damage, which means he has to play flawlessly the whole time.

      Why he could win: A more seasoned competitor than the above two, flawless play is what it took for FG to grind through some amazing competitors. He surprised everyone by sticking with Batman even when we thought he'd switch to Deadshot. That showed some amazing composure and discipline. What other pocket characters might he have up his sleeve?

      Summary: The man from the UK who studies opponents and writes notes on his hand, who showed unbelievable stage knowledge, we're going to see in the first match if he has Dragon's number. It'll take a tour de force of unpredictability, but if anyone can do it, FG is the one. A classy guy all-around, we'd all be happy to see FG take it home, even if it is to England.



      Why he could lose: Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, FK seemed to always be a player who could consistently make top 8 and never close the deal. Particularly when SonicFox was in the tournament. As a scrub, I don't want to use the word "choke" as much as say he'd get "outplayed" on the main stage. Plus, EGO! When FK seems to think about teabagging and dragging the thumb across the throat and how braggadocious his winner's speech will be, that's when he gets opened up in the finals. Like Foxy, he had to grind through the last chance tournament because he didn't have the best season.

      Why he could win: FK beat Sonic twice to send him home, something that has rarely been done. He clawed back through the last chance qualifiers to make it in Group A. The Batlord/Man from Ohio has more tournament experience in NRS games than any other competitor. At the ripe old age of 23, he still has the sharp reflexes. Somewhere along the line, I think it might have been in that tight match with Rewind, something seemed to click and FK went "No, no, no!" like Wyatt Earp in Tombstone and refused to lose, getting clutch! From then on he had amazing gameplay.

      Summary: "The People's Champion" FK is likely a fan favorite of the NRS community since he has been around since MK9. I just don't think one can simultaneously beat Dragon while thinking of the cool place to teabag him. If FK can focus on just winning and not "being cool" while he does it, then he has a great shot since Batman has the tools and FK knows them all!

      Thanks, Bro. No one is asking me. For the time being, I'll leave it to the pros like @UltraDavid @DarthArma and others.
