GamesterGear sending ChrisG to Final Round next weekend

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 5, 2014 at 6:31 p.m. PST

Final Round is coming up next weekend, and a familiar face will be in attendance because of the help of the headset company GamesterGear.

Christopher "NYChrisG" Gonzalez will be attending one of the largest tournaments of the year in Atlanta, GA, on March 14-16, 2014.

"If they weren't helping I wouldn't be going," said Gonzalez of GamesterGear's efforts to get him to the event.

The headset company is perhaps best known in the FGC for sponsoring Sherry Jenix, but it's pretty awesome they're getting one of the nation's top players out so he can compete and put on a show for those watching.

Hit the jump to read more.

We asked Chris if this was a one-off thing, GamesterGear sending him out to an event, and he confirmed this was the case. "Yeah, it's [just] for this tourney right now," said Gonzalez.

If you'd like to show your support for this company sending our players out to events, you can use the promo code chrisg4gg to save 35% on your orders on their official website.

You can also find many more details about Final Round on the official site, as it's where Capcom will officially be unveiling the 5th character in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Does anyone know why ChrisG wasn't playing at SCR? I saw him at the Filipino Champ vs Cloud FT15, but i don't recall him playing, at least he didn't get to top places.

ChrisG actually played at SCR. In the case of UMvC3, he was unfortunately disqualified in pools.

Thanks

Good news! Get hype for Final Round

spotlesseden said on March 5, 2014 at 7:56 p.m.

from what i read. I could be totally wrong, so don't quote me on it.

ChirsG was late, so he got sent to loser.(his fault).

He made it to loser final and really to play. TO probably told him he couldn't play since the fire alarm was ringing.
Then he got DC because he didn't know when the loser final was supposed to resume play. Probably nobody told me when to return.

Can't knock the decision by GG. He's pretty much a sure-fire top 8 in marvel and he always does good in the other games he plays.

Also has anyone actually here tried any of the GamesterGear headsets? Might take advantage of that 35% off.lol

The fact he is without a doubt the best umvc3 player might also play a part. Now i think he moans too much, and i dont really have respect for marvel as a game its just a boring spamfest to me. But even i know this guy is the best there is.

That whole scr thing stinks like a month old fish, they did their best to get him out else he woulda taken the top spot for sure.

ChrisG why don't you play Injustice anymore? if someone is friends with him n can tell us the answer then i'd appreciate it. i'm sure all the other injustice fans out there would too. cheers

#48
MarthFE said on March 7, 2014 at 4:57 a.m.

I try to be fair about it but I feel like every word out of his mouth is just his cocky attitude. Oh well... Also, f champ is still "the best", it's only a matter of time before he can consistently show it. Note I'm not a fan of either player, his general knowledge and play is just better. Or at least it was, he's seen better days...

#49
oni_chan3000 said on March 7, 2014 at 3:21 p.m.

i met him once and i didn't know who he was so introduced myself before our match and he left my hand unshook and said not a word. is he always that rude?

#50
deus said on March 7, 2014 at 8:33 p.m.

hey man, the arcade scene where i'm from is exactly that but it's only because - if you don't have the confidence or personality to make yourself known then they won't bother to get to know you.

sometimes, if someone doesn't shake your hand, you extend your hand over, n just SHAKE their hand instead. literally, grab their hand, shake it and say "nice to meet you".

anyway, that might be out of character for you, right? well, just like you wouldn't do that, some people, like ChrisG, it's not in their character to be generic with the whole formal handshakes and "hey, how are you". rather than think someone is rude, try take the time to say something to them, get to know them before you make any personal critique on a person.
