NorCal Regionals 2018, held in Sacramento, CA, USA from November 30th to April 1st, is over and the results are in! This Premier Event was the third event of the season and many top players from around the world took part, with every pool being fiercely competitive. There were also lesser known or unknown players in the pools who showed incredible skill, resulting in some thrilling upsets of top players.
Japan’s ECHO FOX|Tokido is off to an incredibly strong start in the 2018 season with this win at NorCal Regionals 2018. He also took 1st place at last week’s TGU 2018 Ranking Event and took 2nd place at Final Round 2018, the season’s first Premier Event.
