Christian “Forever King” Quiles, Injustice 2 player for Circa Esports, had a great showing at Combo Breaker 2017 in Chicago, IL. Forever King finished in 4th place out of 391 entrants, going 8–2 over 10 games in the tournament.
Forever King started his tournament run in the C1 Pool facing off against “Burritos”, winning the set cleanly 3–0. He would then go on to have 3 more 3–0 sets to secure his place in the Top 48 Winner’s Bracket against “Doza”, “CarlosOceano”, and “Daddydab32”. Forever King would look to take this 12–0 match momentum into the Top 48, in hopes to win the tournament.
Going in to the Top 48, Forever King knew he would not have nearly as easy of a time as his did in his pool matches. He started his Top 48 run against “MIT”, winning the set cleanly 3–0. He would go on to face Echo Fox’s “SonicFox” in the Winner’s Bracket Quarter-Final, losing the hard fought set 2–3, going down into the Loser’s Bracket to fight his way out.
He would start his Loser’s Bracket run against another Echo Fox player, “Scar”, winning the set 3–0 and moving on to face “KDZ”. He would be KDZ 3–0 and go on to face “Dragon” in the Loser’s Quarter-Final, where he would also win 3–0. It is in the Loser’s Semi-Final where Forever King would finally be eliminated, losing a well fought match against “Tekken Master” 0–3.
Overall, Forever King felt good about his showing at Combo Breaker 2017. When asked about his feeling on his performance, Forever King said:
“ I’m very happy with my performance, I wish I would have stuck to Black Adam more during Top 8 though. I also wish I made it up to “SonicFox” to get the run-back but it’ll have to wait until CEO!”
