Nuckledu surprised everyone by putting on a spectacular performance, showing casing the next generation of talent by beating Evil Geniuses (EG) Ricky Ortiz, (LOUD) Zeus, Happy Medicine and After Glow Elite (AGE) Flash Metroid to place 2nd for EMP. NuckleDu and Dieminion mirror matched each other with Guile vs. Guile as the crowd chanted “Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom”! They tediously threw Sonic Booms at each other until one read the other and either jumped in for a combo or used their Ultra Special to counter the standard Sonic Boom. In the end the match drew out to the final round of the final game in the first set only for NuckleDu to lose by a pixel of life in comparison to Dieminion’s health in a classic time over session.
