Fighting games are a genre so old and storied that nearly every gamer in the modern age has most certainly played one or tried to at least. Fighting games require far more investment than other genres, doubly so if you are planning to play on a competitive level. This is why competitions like East Coast Throwdown are so important as they offer many players a more controlled and less stressful environment to play and compete in. But don’t let that fool you these competitions are known to be the proving grounds of new and upcoming esports players, a prime example being SonicFox and HIKARI two players who grew from grassroots competitions to the world stage.



Competitors gather and the Stage is Set


Similar to many other state tournaments, East Coast Throwdown started in the late 2000s nearly 13 years ago, with a measly few games in their catalog. But with the passing of the years and rising interest in gaming and esports in general, they have grown large enough to host 3000 attendants and hold matches of 16 of the most popular fighting games on the market. These games also include some of the best anime fighting games on the market right now and the most popular among them is the latest entry in the Guilty Gear Franchise, dubbed Strive, for the story is an endeavor by the developers to end the story of one of the most iconic heroes in gaming Sol Bad Guy.

For those eager to be part of the action, registration is open on the official East Coast Throwdown website. But if you so wish you can also register through the official tournament page on Start.gg. As for pricing, it will be calculated at the time of the purchase depending on which passes you took and how many tournaments you applied for. But do remember that some matches may have clashes, so it is advisable for players to confirm the schedule beforehand. Haste is also recommended as the max capacity is 3000 and any more than that will not be allowed. 



The Prize Pool: High Stakes and Higher Rewards
