Get ready gamers, the next event in the Cineplex WorldGaming Canadian Championship Series is here! Presented by PS4: Northern Fights is a new premier fighting game tournament featuring two of the most popular games in genre: Street Fighter V and Mortal Kombat XL. The ultimate winner of this one will be cashing a $10,000 cheque and receiving a trip to Evo 2017!
This tournament is hybrid, in that regional qualifiers will take place at 14 Cineplex locations across the country and then an online qualifier will be held. This time around, the qualifiers will be first held in-theatre where a Regional Winner will be crowned. The online qualifiers will only be a ‘last-chance qualifier’ held on WorldGaming.com for those who are unable to qualify through the in-theatre qualifiers. Check out the regional qualifiers prize structure below:
- 1st place: $250 + qualify for National Finals
- 2nd place: $150
- 3rd place: $100
- 4th place: $50
The regional in-theatre qualifiers will take place on Sunday, June 4th 2017. Each regional location will have two winners – one for Street Fighter V and one for Mortal Kombat XL. Both the games will be played as two separate independent tournaments within the entire event. Online registration for the regional qualifiers closes June 1st, so don’t wait! Registration for the in-theatre qualifiers will take place through www.WorldGaming.com/Cineplex and will cost $10 CAD per player to enter. If there are still spots available in the bracket at the close of registration, players will have the option to register in person for $15 CAD.
