What To Watch This Weekend: Injustice 2, Dota 2, And Super Smash Bros. Melee
It's still technically Spring for a couple more weeks, but everyone knows it's really summer. Esports are in on this line of reasoning, as a few tournament leagues are kicking off their Summer leagues. There's also just a bunch of great tournaments this weekend.
Combo Breaker is one of the biggest fighting game tournaments of the year, and for good reason. It has tournaments for 18 games, including Street Fighter V, Injustice 2, Guilty Gear Xrd: REV 2, Tekken 7, and a mystery game tournament, where players compete in a different, obscure game every round. (Streams / Schedule) For a more dedicated Street Fighter V tournament, check out the Red Bull Kumite, which should have a strong lineup of international players. (Stream and Schedule)
