The second Victory Road tournament will be taking place today, Saturday, May 12!
For those who aren't caught up on Victory Road 2, the tournament is the sequel to the incredibly successful online Victory Road tournament that took place during the #PokkenEvo campaign. When Pokkén was announced as one of the titles in running for the final Evo 2017 slot, the Pokkén community worked together to raise tens of thousands of dollars for the donation drive. While Pokkén did not secure the final slot, the campaign was a massive success that showed the perseverance and passion of our community, and Victory Road was one (of many) reasons for the campaign's success!
Like its predecessor, Victory Road 2 was announced as part of a campaign to raise funds for a worthy cause. The sequel event was created to help raise funds to get Doghouse Esports to Dreamhack Austin 2018, and it was a success! Now, any future donations for Victory Road 2 will be going towards making the Pokkén event at Dreamhack Austin even better, including getting talented players and casters such as Burnside to the event!
Also like with the first Victory Road, the tournament is free to enter, but donations are strongly encouraged in place of a bracket entry fee. Please consider supporting the event and the campaign it's supporting however you can!
