StreamMe’s Anakin protects home turf at DreamHack Atlanta 2017 – Recap, results and video
The Tekken World Tour makes a stop at the world’s largest digital festival.
DreamHack Atlanta 2017 was a master event on the Tekken World Tour, taking place at one of the most competitive Tekken scenes in North America. ATL players StreamMe|Anakin and PG|Speedkicks, vS|Pokchop, vS|Jio, Nimbus|ATLTiger_Mask, Clint the Beast, Big Boi and some others were all in attendance.
Two of the favorites to win it all, Anakin and Speedkicks, did defend their turf. At one point it looked like Speedkicks was headed down the wrong path. In a match with In the Skies’ P.Ling he chose Jack-7 as a counter pick. It made sense on paper, but P.Ling ended up sending Speed to the loser’s bracket. When they met again in loser’s finals (Anakin sent P.Ling there), Speed was persistent in his counter pick, and stuck with Jack-7. It proved to be the right decision.
In grand finals Anakin and Speed would face one another. Anakin would prevail using Paul Phoenix (whom he used throughout the Top 8), taking 1st place, $1,250 and some points on the Tekken World Tour.
