AMurderOfBears is your Overdrive S2 Champion!

Our second season of the Overdrive Series has come to a resounding close!

For four weeks straight, Xcel BjornSonOfBear and FF ElvenShadow clashed in Grand Finals. The intensity of their matches escalated with each week, but the result remained the same…Bear emerged victorious after all of their confrontations, despite a close call he’d experienced in his first set with Mr. K, a late newcomer to the Overdrive Series!

As a result of his flawless streak, Bear is your back-to-back league champion for both seasons of the Overdrive Series! This means that he’s going to EVO 2017 and to CEOtaku 2017 to compete in high-level Guilty Gear XRD Rev 2! We congratulate him for his achievements and wish him all the best!

From both StreamMe and Level-Up Series, we thank the anime FGC for their support and participation in the Overdrive Series! We hope you’re enjoying the launch of XRD Rev 2 and can’t wait to deliver to you more competitions for your favorite anime fighters!
