21 Mar 18

Let's Play Live (LPL) travelled across the country to find the best Dragon Ball FighterZ players in New Zealand. It's now down to the final eight players to see who will win it all. 

LPL sent out a press release to tell us that the Dragon Ball FighterZ National Finals is happening tonight. LPL spent a month scouring the best players of the game, and now we can see who is truly the best. 

It's down to eight finalists from Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch. Once they all face each other, the single winner will get a chance to represent the whole country of New Zealand at the Evolution Championship Series (EVO) in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

The final eight players are: 

  • Sheldon “Toash” Chean​
  • Jarrett “WaZa” Rameka
  • Ethan “GotTierLeo” Ruatoe
  • Josh “weyden” Weyden​
  • Ajith “Blackout” Siva
  • Mitchell “Unearthed” Phease
  • Nick “Nick4Now” Piana​
  • JungSu “Hanihani Mwohani” Oe

“We have seen some amazing matches throughout the series, but this final will be something truly special” says Jordan Lilley, Tournament Director. “These players represent the best-of-the-best in New Zealand, and we are expecting a really tight tournament with the potential for some upsets.”

You can watch the finals for yourself as it will air on Wednesday 21, March at 8pm via Sky Sport channel 056. You can also click here in order to watch the event on Twitch if you don't have Sky.
