PREMIER EVENT: Dreamhack Montreal 2018 Results
Dreamhack Montreal 2018, held in Montreal, Canada from September 7th through 9th, is over and USA’s ECHO FOX|Justin Wong has won his first Premier Event of the season!
ECHO FOX|Justin Wong put on his best performance of the 2018 season thus far with an impressive win at Dreamhack Montreal. The switch to Menat as his main character has served him well. Menat seems like a great fit for Justin’s more defensive play-style. He got to the Grand Finals through the Winner’s bracket where he had to face off against Capcom Cup 2016 Champion GHOST|NuckleDu. The two faced off previously in Winners Finals where justin came out on top 3-1. In Grand Finals NuckleDu came close to snatching victory away starting with a 1-3 win with his Cammy against Justin’s Menat. The second set was fierce but Justin came out on top 3-2.
Also having his best performance in a Premier this season was USA’s GHOST|NuckleDu, whose previous best Premier placement was 3rd place at NorCal Regionals. NucleDu’s only losses were to Justin Wong. NuckleDu surprised many by playing Juri in Winners Finals, perhaps viewing Juri’s strengths as a possible counter to the tricky Menat. NuckleDu played four different characters at various points at this event.
The Evo 2018 Champion MOUSESPORTS|Problem X from the United Kingdom added another impressive Premier Placement to his already tremendous season record. His Abigail was once again a thrill to watch as he decimated the life bars of his opponents with a single combo and his M.Bison remains arguably the best in the world. Problem X was knocked into Losers bracket by Japan’s Mago in top 16 0-2 and was finally eliminated by NuckleDu’s Guile 1-3.
