Our bodies are ready. . .
East Coast Throwdown 2014 is just under two days away and the folks here at PTB couldn’t be more excited to join our fellow FGC brethren for an awesome weekend. The sixth event, hosted by LI Joe and Sweet Johnny Cage will be held in Seacaucus, NJ at Two Harmon Plaza.
By now, you know that essentially most of the East Coast border will be coming out to support the event featuring competitors from Team Replay’d, Always Godlike, Kick Punch Block, Empire Arcadia, Revolution Gaming, and UVG. And expect to see a significant degree of West Coast (and Midwest) representation including the Four Horseman of EG: Justin Wong, KBrad, Ricky Ortiz and PR Rog.
Pre-registration is closed, so last-minute entries will have to pay at the door. Additional details, pool brackets, and more can be found on the official ECT website. We look forward to seeing you there!
