Nine weeks ago, eight teams arrived at the Gfinity Arena with the intention of making it to the tenth and final week. exceL and Team EnVyUs remain and will battle it out to become the very first Elite Series champion for Street Fighter V.In this article, I'll be previewing what is set to be a fascinating contest between two teams that have had very different journeys to the Grand Finals.
It's been a phenomenal turnaround for the boys in blue. Since their loss to Endpoint in week 3, they have won six straight series to make it to the Grand Final. The form of Confz has been a talking point throughout the Elite Series but in recent weeks the flamboyant player has been in fine form, especially in the semi final against Infused where he was able to take down Gun Slinga and Afii. Layo has also impressed at the arena. If these players can get themselves hyped then they're definitely capable of taking down a tough exceL roster.
Player to Watch: Confz
Consisting of some of the best Street Fighter talent from the UK, exceL have been the team to beat from the outset. With only one loss to their name, Infexious & co have looked dominant in some of their games in previous weeks and will be focused on replicating their perfomances in the Grand Final. Alongside Infexious, Hurricane has also had a fantastic Elite Series. the Cammy main has his sights set on the top spot and if he can hit an insane combo, his hands could well be on the title.
Player to Watch: Infexious
