Hey, everyone. We are proud to have the GameClucks FGC Monthly, Seattle Battle Opera be a part of Red Bull Proving Grounds. I had previously written up about this announcement and the accompanying news in Northwest Street Fighter, but let’s me go into it again here so that nobody misses it.

The Red Bull Proving Grounds is made up a set of monthlies taking place across North America including Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Toronto. They will be flying out 16 Street Fighter V players to the Red Bull Studios at Red Bull HQ in Santa Monica, CA to compete in a 16-person double elimination bracket.

This will be one of the biggest chance our players get to prove themselves against other regions due to this format. The winner will earn a spot into the open bracket at the Capcom Pro Tour North America at Red Bull Battle Grounds. In addition, there will also be $5,000 on the line ($2,000/$1,000/$500/$500/$500/$500) breakdown for top 6.

Three players from the Northwest will be flown out to represent our region and to compete. This will determined by our in-region leaderboard. Points will be awarded for each of the 4 events taking place on
