PREMIER EVENT: NorCal Regionals 2018 Results

NorCal Regionals 2018, held in Sacramento, CA, USA from November 30th to April 1st, is over and the results are in! This Premier Event was the third event of the season and many top players from around the world took part, with every pool being fiercely competitive. There were also lesser known or unknown players in the pools who showed incredible skill, resulting in some thrilling upsets of top players.

Japan's ECHO FOX|Tokido is off to an incredibly strong start in the 2018 season with this win at NorCal Regionals 2018. He also took 1st place at last week's TGU 2018 Ranking Event and took 2nd place at Final Round 2018, the season's first Premier Event.

The legendary CYG BST|Daigo, also from Japan, earned 2nd place after losing to NuckleDu in Winners Semi-Finals 1-3 and then in Grand Finals against Tokido 1-3. This 2nd place finish is a massive improvement over the 33rd place earned at Final Round 2018 and the points earned here give him a good early boost this season.

NuckleDu from the USA, who is the 2016 Capcom Cup Champion, earned third place. He finished 5th at Final Round 2018 and is also doing very well early in the season.

Korea's PG|Infiltration, who took 1st place at the Final Round 2018 Premier Event, narrowly missed top 3 and finished at 4th place. He was eliminated by Daigo in Losers Semi-Finals 0-3.
