Team @GGSimplicity signs @TommyTweedy for #Injustice2
As of approximately two weeks ago, one of the NRS community’s finest champions parted ways with Noble Esports, who’d borne witness to his evolution since his induction into the organization on December 2016 as a Mortal Kombat XL player.
With the Season 2 finale of the Injustice 2 Pro Series set to occur in Chicago tomorrow, Tweedy will be taking to the stage as a representative for Simplicity, who in turn will be taking their first steps into the NRS scene’s corner of FGC esports.
Since the launch of Injustice 2 as well as Mortal Kombat XL, Tweedy has lived and breathed a tireless regimen for self-improvement. The constant grind led to a dramatic improvement in his results over the years, but 2018 would mark a glorious era for the infamous cartoon bird’s namesake.
Shortly after the highly anticipated second season to the Injustice 2 Pro Series began its course, Tweedy became the Injustice 2 Champion at Combo Breaker 2018 by defeating DR Gross’s Green Lantern using his Starfire. However, at CEO 2018 and EVO 2018, he finished in second place at both events, suffering losses against two of his Noble teammates at the time (Semiij and Rewind).
In spite of the setbacks, Tweedy has remained the holder of the most league points throughout the entirety of the season (665 points, to be exact), and is therefore preparing to square off against fifteen other elites in Chicago tomorrow. The winner of the IPS Season 2 finale will take home their share of $100,000 and a majestic trophy that pays homage to their crowning achievement.
We sincerely congratulate Tweedy for his latest opportunity, and we wish him the best of luck with his future endeavors.
Something else worth mentioning: Echo Fox SonicFox, last year’s champion for the Injustice 2 Pro Series, will also be present at tomorrow’s finale to defend his reign from an armada of evolved players. Tweedy is counted among the few players to have tarnished SonicFox’s record, which was once near-flawless during the game’s take-off into esports fame, by eliminating him in the Starfire mirror at the EVO 2018 Top 4 finals.
Naturally, with both players sitting comfortably in the Top 2 of the IPS rankings by way of points, the NRS community is hopeful for a runback. Should it happen, will SonicFox heed the harsh advice Tweedy passed to him during their last confrontation, or will he disregard the advice and produce a completely different outcome?!
