SavageSeries to give winner trip to EVO 2017


I enjoy fighting game. I may not be great player but I do love watching top tier competitors fighting it out, seeing ridiculous conbos being pulled out of no where and the tense drama when the score is tied and one wrong move could mean the difference between being a grand champion or second place. As 2016 is coming to a close, many are already thinking towards 2017 and the largest fighting game tournament in the world: the Evolution Championship Series or as its most known as EVO. To kick off the new year and the road to EVO 2017, streaming service Stream.Me is teaming up with Level Up Productions and fighting game legend Alex Vale to bring the first major online tournament for Street Fighter V Season 2, Savage Series.


The Savage Series is free to enter and will be played on the PS4 and PC. The action will kick off Monday, Jan. 9, 2017 with qualifiers at 6:00pm PST. Pools will take place each Monday and will be followed with Top 8 Finals on Tuesdays starting at 7:00pm PST. The winner of the tourney will win free travel and lodging to EVO 2017.
