VS Fighting 2017 results from Birmingham, UK

Abigail made Top 5… SMH

It was a big weekend for fighting game tournaments across the globe. Having lent my private jet to a friend, it was easiest for me to travel an hour up the road to attend VS Fighting 2017 at Millennium Point in Birmingham.

It was a fun weekend, I plan to write a little about it this week, along with my thoughts on Dragon Ball Fighter Z and Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, both of which were in attendance alongside approximately 700 projectile-spamming fight-fans. There was also a fun side-tourney on Puyo Puyo Tetris, which was intense as hell and had a set which ran for 27 minutes.

More on all that later, so stay tuned. In the meantime, here are the tournament standings from the weekend. Tekken 7, Street Fighter V and Injustice 2 were officially recognised events, so their results count toward each game’s respective Pro-Tour.
