Halo 5 is hanging up its hat in terms of official esports tournaments and Dreamhack Atlanta housed the goodbye party with the HCS (Halo Championship Series) Finals.

pro Tekken player Cuddle_Core aka Jeannail Carter is a top-notch representative of the fighting game community's Midwest talent

To my mind, pro Tekken player Cuddle_Core aka Jeannail Carter is a top-notch representative of the fighting game community’s Midwest talent. When I first had the pleasure of meeting her at Frosty Faustings I was blown away by her composure and positive attitude.
