After catching the archived footage at Arturo Sanchez’s Twitch Channel, I pity Injustice: Gods Among Us fans who missed pool play at Civil War VI. The blowups were real in Virginia and that is understating what happened on day one of this tournament. At the hands of one PTH Captain Oxygen, Lobo was escalated to top eight winners. Oxygen managed to defeat the likes of RG Tom Brady on his journey to top eight winners. Tom Brady’s tournament end came at the hands of BIFU | Insaynne, a fellow Aquaman player.
Sonic Fox joined Oxygen in top eight after an extremely close set against the up-and-coming Zod player by the name of PTH RelaxedState. RelaxedState showed some excellent positioning on his instant-air Zod balls, and just barely lost his match to Sonic Fox 3-2. RelaxedState qualified out of losers of his pool into losers top eight.
Fan favorite and Final Round top eight placer, Kinetic Orochi, qualified for winners top eight continuing to show his improvement and innovation with Green Lantern. PTH Khaotik made top eight losers coming out of Kinetic Orochi’s pool. He had a couple of extremely close sets with popular Green Arrow player, 7L, and ultimately lost to Kinetic Orochi in winners. This marks Khaotik’s second top eight appearance with Killer Frost.
Quite possibly the most shocking turn of events at Civil War VI was PTH Astronout advancing into top eight winners. He managed to pull off one of the biggest upsets in the competitive life of Injustice through his use of Catwoman to defeat tournament favorite, Emperor Jupiter. Astronout was clearly prepared for a match-up that most everyone who plays Injustice is afraid of. In addition to Catwoman, Astronout also used Batgirl and Killer Frost. This is his first appearance in top eight at a major.

The month of April marks the one year anniversary of the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us. For those who don’t know, Injustice is a fighting game created by the developers of the Mortal Kombat series. Led by Ed Boon, Injustice went on to win several awards including VGX’s Fighting Game of the Year award. The tournament life is where Injustice thrives in terms of excitement and methodical gameplay. The game has seen quite an evolution in the year that it’s had to grow. Superman and Black Adam were two characters that often traded tournament wins at the beginning due to their tools. These two characters were powerful at the highest level, and in the right hands, they were unstoppable. NetherRealm Studios responded to the outcry of the community and made an be-all end-all patch. This patch has led to some of the most hype tournament matches imaginable. The most recent major tournament for Injustice was Texas Showdown 2014, and it was won by a Shazam player by the name of KH Digit. Shazam is widely considered as a weak character, and Digit’s win further proves the diversity of competitive Injustice play.
Moving past the background information comes some information about the upcoming major that will be held in Virginia. It is the sixth installment of the Civil War tournament, and it will feature Injustice. This will be one of the first majors to implement a best 3 out of 5 format for Injustice. The community for Injustice have gone back and forth on the topic of what format is better for tournament play. It will be interesting to see how scheduling works with longer Injustice set, but nevertheless it will be a worthwhile experiment. Civil War VI will include 4 pools with roughly 12 players in each. This tournament marks the one-year tournament anniversary of Injustice: Gods Among Us. The list of pools can also be viewed and discussed on the Test Your Might website.
