What To Watch This Weekend: Mortal Kombat 11, Hearthstone, And Counter-Strike
This weekend we get one of the biggest fighting game events of the year, some hot Counter-Strike action, and the beginning of the Hearthstone Grandmasters league.
Combo Breaker is probably the biggest fighting game event this side of Evo, and lots of heavy-hitters and coming to compete in just about every fighting game you can think of. The event’s 24 (!!!) tournaments include new hits like Mortal Kombat 11 and Soulcalibur VI, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as well as classic games like Capcom vs. SNK 2, Darkstalkers 3, and more. (Streams and Schedule)
There’s also Momocon, which will host a number of other games, inlcuding Super Smash Bros. Melee, Puyo Puyo Tetris, and more. (Streams and Schedule)
The main League of Legends circuit might be in a lull right now, but you can still watch the last few rounds of the game’s collegiate league. (Stream and Schedule)
You can catch two Counter-Strike: Global Offensive events this weekend. First, the last rounds of the ECS’ seventh season end for both its European and North American divisions, leading into the finals next month. (Stream) Second, BeyondTheSummit is hosting its next Summit event for the game this weekend, which promises to offer a more laid-back affair. (Stream)
This year’s Hearthstone Grandmasters season has kicked off, and will pit the game’s best players against each other in regular matches in North American, Asia, and European divisions until July. (Stream / Schedule)
