LevelUp & StreamMe Present "The Overdrive Series"
Welcome to the Overdrive Series!
LevelUpLive and StreamMe team up once again to bring you a new series aimed towards Guilty Gear XRD: Revelator. Similar to the Savage Series, this league will last throughout all of April with preliminaries every Monday and Top 8 every Tuesday. Compete to earn cash prizes and league points for a chance to win a FREE trip to EVO 2017 this year at the Mandalay Bay!
Guilty Gear XRD has become one of the longest running anime titles in the fighting game community. This year, it joins Blazblue: Central Fiction at the EVO World Stage. In respect to the amazing growth of the competitive anime scene, we organized the Overdrive Series with the hopes of sending a player right into their dream world at Vegas!
StreamMe believes solely in surpassing itself when it comes to delivering high-quality events online. That said, we have established a partnership with Guilty Gear community leader Bryce “Bounty” Lambert to bring you live coverage of the Monday qualifiers! Please make sure to follow the GG sub reddit in order to stay in touch with its community.
All players can now sign up for any weekly bracket from the Overdrive Series. There are four weeks in all, so you will have four chances to climb through the rankings and grab your trip to EVO. Monday qualifiers begin at 6 P.M. PST whereas the Tuesday finals will take place at 7 P.M. PST. The league winner will be determined immediately after the conclusion of Week 4.
And here’s a new twist: unlike all of our previous online circuits, the Overdrive Series will be played via Steam on PC!
