Eleague has come to its conclusion for the night. We have your batch of highlights ready for your viewing pleasure.


First up is a match between GW|Eita and CYG|Daigo. It really looked like Eita was going to take the second round of the first match against Daigo, but it ended up being a real slobber knocker.

Meanwhile, the triple overhead from ZW|GamerBee against FOX|Justin Wong just seemed super disrespectful, yet super smart.

Daigo ended up having an interesting reaction to GamerBee's jump in. Since he had a full super bar, he anti-aired him using his critical art.

Being that Eita and GamerBee are good friends, it's not too surprising that they know one another's habits. This led to some really well-placed EX dragon punches.

Eita vs. PR Balrog resulted in an interesting match. Eita was out of v-meter, so PR Balrog was likely going to chip Eita out with his critical art, but Eita interrupted his plans.

Here's a funny little sequence where the crowd was chanting "U.S.A." which prompted Eita to taunt them.

In the match between Eita vs. Daigo, Daigo saw that Eita used his V-Trigger and had no meter for a v-reversal. Daigo went for the chip but was a little off.

Eita ended up taking the round against Daigo, leaving Daigo without his meter for the next round.

We all know that Daigo is known for his psychic dragon punches, but he also used to be a Guile player in previous Street Fighter titles. This is known as the Ume Flash Kick.

Daigo had a huge lead in the second match but Eita made an explosive comeback that caused Daigo to go back to the character select screen in order to recoop himself.

After taking a breather, Daigo came back in full force with some deadly loops.
