PREMIER EVENT: LATAM Regional Finals 2018 Results

LATAM Regional Finals 2018, held in Sao Paulo, Brazil on November 3rd, is over and the results are in. As a Regional Final, SEA Major is two events in one.

First there was an Open Tournament which is similar to a Premier Event only it also awards points on the related Regional Leaderboard (see Rules page for details). The Grand Final was between two of Japan's legendary Street Fighter players with FUDOH|Haitani facing off against Mago. Mago came in from the Losers bracket, having been beaten by Haitani 1-3 in Winners Finals. At first the runback in Grand Finals went Mago's way, with Mago defeating Haitani 3-0 to reset the bracket. Haitani came back strong in the second set and would defeat Mago 3-1 to claim victory. Both players are safely qualified for Capcom Cup via points after this event with Haitani moving up to 13th place and Mago to 21st place on the Global Leaderboard standings.

The next event was the Regional Final, which was an eight player event consisting of the top 8 players on the CPT Latin America Leaderboard (excluding RISE|MenaRD and RISE|Caba, who are already qualified for Capcom Cup via points). In this event it was SonicBoxx|Crossover from the Dominican Republic who would come away with the win after defeating Peru's RAPTOR E-SPORTS|Pikoro 3-1 in Grand Finals. Crossover will now qualify for Capcom Cup in December. It's interesting to note that Capcom Cup 2018 will feature three players from the Dominican Republic (the others being Capcom Cup 2017 Champion RISE|MenaRD and RISE|Caba).

Now let's take a look at the full LATAM Regional Finals 2018 results!
