EVO 2014: Xiaohai wins King of Fighters XIII

by: Russell -

In the final tournament to finish up on Day 2, Qanba|Xiaohai (Iori/Mr. Karate/Kim) took the crown for King of Fighters XIII over MCZ|Tokido (Iori/Chin/Mr. Karate).

Tokido put up a great fight in the loser's finals beating LDA|ET 3-2 after being down 2-0.  A simple change in the order of his fighters made the difference as he took the next three rounds to advance to Grand Finals.  After that he had the daunting task of winning two straight sets against Xiaohai.

The first set he took rather convincingly 3-0.  The second set turned out to be a bit more daunting as Tokido once again found himself down 2-0, but unlike Loser's Finals he didn't change his order, keeping Chin in spot #2 (his change in Loser's Finals was putting Chin in spot #3).  Tokido took round 3, but that was the end of the road as Xiaohai took the tournament by winning round 4, taking the set 3-1 to become the EVO 2014 King of Fighters XIII champion.

That wraps up the Grand Finals of the major tournaments.  Tomorrow will see the remaining finals which include BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, Killer Instinct, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Ultra Street Fighter IV.  Due to having to work in the morning I likely won't be able to post the results of the first two tournaments, so I'll pick back up again tomorrow with the results of Super Smash Bros. Melee.
