[Can] USF4 and KI at Three D6 – January 9th Results


The first 2016 Canberra tournaments for Ultra Street Fighter IV and Killer Instinct took place at Three D6 last weekend. Vlad emerged victorious in the Open Bracket , defeating Matt Diep in the grand finals. In the USF4 B League Tan’s Vega put in the work to take top honours over Matt.

In KI Adam kept both Mikey and Vlad from the winner’s podium, however these top players are clearly coming to grips with the game having placed 3rd and 2nd respectively. It’s great to see KI getting more tournament attention in Australia. Being Xbox One exclusive has held the game back so the PC release might be able to add some interest.

Below we have the top 3 players in each bracket, along with links to the Challonge brackets and photos of some of the finalists courtesy of Stick Addiction.
