Winner of Dreamhack promises to donate all winnings to Hurricane Irma

Last year’s Capcom Cup winner and FGC personality KnuckleDu has pledged to give all his winnings to victims of Hurricane Irma.

Liquid’s NuckleDu will be donating a majority of the total $10,000 prize pool he earned by beating Echo Fox’s Justin Wong in the Grand Finals. You can watch the entire match below.

This was an incredibly nice gesture by Du. I am sure Florida is going to need every single cent they can get in rebuilding and it is great to see people in the FGC community caring about such things.

Further Thoughts on the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Roster

Yes, I realize that there has been a lot of talk about the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite roster these past few weeks heading up to the game’s September 19th release this year. I do not really want to beat a dead horse at this point, but the roster for this game just really irks me. But, at the same time, I feel like there are certain factors that came into play when creating the game that many people did not notice or just decided to ignore. I am not giving Capcom an excuse, but there may be some slack that Capcom has yet to reap from its fans.

I will also be specifically only talking about things in regards to the roster of the game. I will not be mentioning the new story or gameplay mechanics in Infinite.

After this, I will not be making any more posts specifically regarding the roster for the upcoming fighting game unless something significant changes it.
