    GOOOODDDDD AFTERNOOOON TYM. In a change of pace for the US FGC, Viennality's Top 8 took place on the 8PM main-stage over in Vienna, which resulted in things going down 3PM EST. Speaking of results (you like that segue?) TYM has got your back with the play-by-play and the winner of that $10k pot bonus.

    Here's who actually got into this Top 8:

    bc Biohazard vs. PG Kitana Prime
    PG Hayatei vs. Irishmantis

    NASR Shark Teeth vs. HappyPow
    NASR Tekken Master vs. bc Honeybee

    As usual, just click that spoiler for the details. The stream will be available on the NRS Twitch and Youtube. Yes, the NRS Youtube. Not EPIC FGC STREAMZ or some other weird Russian/Chinese rip. The NRS Youtube. NRS YOUTUBE. Anyways, here we go!


    P.P.S. Super proud of the community for tuning in to the stream, started out at 11k before things got started, and the count just grew from there (14k as of putting this piece together). This is how you show support for a game.

      This was a pretty great major for the NRS scene. Not a lot of people went, but a ton of viewers, things actually ran on time, the most of the matches were great.

      i appreciate the no spoilers approach here, but then pushing the winner into the faces of people who dont even visit tym, but via facebook, is just dumb. and please dont tell me to unfollow tym.

      If this sounds hostile, I don't mean it to be. I'm going to tell you to unfollow TYM if that's an issue. Unless you want to start a campaign to get the entire FGC to not talk about tourney events on social media until you can get around to watching a stream, I'm not seeing the problem

      I think the highlight for me was seeing some enchantress play. I know she has a rep for bing a little gimmicky.. but I still think she is pretty strong. She is the kind of character that if the NRS scene had some staying power would get some legend working out how to be a killer with her. The two year cycle in NRS doesn't give enough time for these kind of characters to breath.

      Good thing that NRS is (possibly!) delaying their next big release :p

      So nice you have to watch it twice. @IrishMantis "arguably" the most hype tournament match I've seen in this games life. GGS

      I feel like INJ2 has a lot of characters like that.

      You have no idea how pissed I was that I missed the "Match Extended" thing to grab a snip

      Grand finals was like the pinnacle of this.

      Revetleafing has been demoing Cheetah for a while on War of the Gods. he has beaten Biohazard a few times, and I am kinda sure that Bio picked her up after seeing revet. She can drop HUGE damage... and has a really unique playstyle. If you look at Bio's games at vienality then you can see that he is still pretty loose with her.. I mean he did excellent do not get me wrong.. but he hardly ever used her trait. It recharges super quick and he should be popping it much more often. So, if he keeps at it.. basically.. you ain't seen nothing yet.
    17. HellblazerHawkman
      Honestly, I think this might be the better character for him. Grappler with a ton of damage, like Bane, but has significantly better mobility

      aka not trash

      That was an excellent tournament for sure. It brought a ton of great moments and matches, huge kudos to everyone.

      I was so glad that both of my friends, Yammini and Harukaze returned to Viennality to compete. Yammini was in both the IJ2 and DBFZ tournies and Harukaze was at the BBCTB one, I actually checked all 3 tournies just to cheer them on (that was the first time I've ever checked a tourney for an ASW game, BTW). It is unfortunate that neither guy made that far, but they still gave it all and as a friend of both of them, I'm proud of them.

      Also huge kudos to Yuzu RZA for both winning the MKX tourney for the 2nd year in a row and getting at 4th place for DBFZ, the guy rocked it (no pun intended). Huge kudos to him.

      Also kudos to Happy Pow for both his stuff in MKX, IJ2 and DBFZ. I wish he would've use Nimble Reptile though but he still delivered the hype like he always does. His set against Irish Mantis at the IJ2 Top 8 was the best match of the IJ2 tourney hands down, it was such a clutch set.

      Also I was very glad to see Noxious Reptile, my main, from Fake Asian, I just wish he switched back to Noxious Reptile from Grandmaster Sub-Zero on the 2nd game, he clearly had the better chance against Foxy with Reptile, but I'm still glad to see him winning matches with him on pools and that it was caught on stream.

      And finally, kudos to Biohazard for winning the IJ2 tourney, that guy earned it.

      The MKX tourney was of course my favorite to watch, so much hype overall, and the IJ2 tourney was awesome as well.

      Once again huge credit to everyone for making such an amazing event, it's so good that the NRS scene have their own focused EU major. Can't wait until next year.

      maybe... Bane has insane armour options...
