The last major East Coast fighting game event of the year has come to a close and vVv Gaming walked away champions!

NEC-12-small.jpg

North East Championship 12 finished this past weekend in Philadelphia, PA, featuring some of the top titles and top players that the fighting game community has to offer. With two of the

top Mortal Kombat players in the world, both vVv Gaming players were favorites to take 1st place in the Mortal Kombat 9 event. vVv REO and vVv CD Jr. battled hard throughout the weekend, playing match after match to make their way to the top. Both players went undefeated throughout all of Saturday, securing top 8 winners bracket positions going into Sunday's finals. vVv Krayzie also did well, missing a top 8 spot by one match, finishing in 9th place overall.

The NEC XII MK9 top 8 featuring vVv REO and vVv CD Jr.

On Sunday, the top 8 began with a vVv throw-down between REO and CD Jr, a rematch of the Season's Beatings 2011 grand finals. The match resulted in a 2-0 win for CD Jr, bouncing REO to the losers bracket. After a host of other exciting top 8 matches, the two vVv Gaming teammates faced off again when they found themselves in the losers bracket finals, fighting for a spot in grand finals to face DetroitBallin's impressive Shang Tsung. Again, CD Jr. was able to come out on top, sending REO home with a third place finish, and moving forward to fight for 1st place.

vVv CD Jr and vVv REO battling in the losers finals.

In the Mortal Kombat 9 grand finals, CD Jr faced his toughest competition of the weekend. DetroitBallin' had been turning heads throughout Saturday with his dominating performances while using Shang Tsung, a character rarely seen in tournament play. CD Jr and other players in the top 8 had admitted that they were not familiar with the Shang Tsung matchup, and by this point some regarded DetroitBallin' to be the favorite to win it all after his Saturday matches. Despite the lack of experience and after falling to an early 2-0 deficit, CD Jr abandoned his main character, Jax, and counter-picked DetroitBallin with Smoke. Using Smoke, CD Jr brought the series to a 2-2 tie, forcing the nail-biting game 5! The fifth and final had the audience on the edges of their seats, as Detroit managed to stop CD Jr's momentum and defeated him in the deciding final match.

Please join us in congratulating vVv CD Jr on his second place finish, and vVv REO for his third place finish. Along with vVv Krayzie in ninth, vVv Gaming had 3 players finish in the top 10 out of 84 participants! Congratulations to everyone who competed. Let's go, vVv!

NEC was great, vVv had a great showing. REO, CD Jr and Krayzie did good and represented vVv with passion.

Everyone there was friendly and the hype was going until 1am Sunday morning. I have pictures of vVv members in mid match that I will upload in a second.

I'm proud of vVv and I know they'll be taking home the gold at Winter Brawl.

You don't even trip, I lost to your brother in pools, even after I had thought I knew the Kitana matchup.

LESSON LEARNED: Never go to a major without watching every great Kitana...

I thought they were all the same...

SCR in 3 days though baby, me and REO need to represent with 1st and 2nd!
