Get ready for Summer Jam XI, coming on August 11-13, 2017!

The month of August kicks off with a collection of events coming to the fighting game community! One such event is Summer Jam XI, one of Big E Gaming’s trademark tournament series alongside Winter Brawl and NEC (Northeast Championships).

The event comes to the Crowne Plaza at Cherry Hill, Philadelphia on August 11-13. Online registration, valued at a $55 venue fee plus another $10 per game, will last until the end of this Friday, after which you’ll only be able to sign up at the door next week. We recommend taking advantage of this opportunity while you have the time – visit here to make your preparations!

Summer Jam XI is a popular summertime destination for FGC players looking to hold their own against formidable competition. The following games will be featured at the event:

  • Street Fighter V
  • Tekken 7
  • Injustice 2
  • Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
  • Pokken Tournament
  • Dead or Alive 5: Last Round
  • Guilty Gear XRD Revelator 2

Summer Jam XI has been acknowledged as a ranking event for the Capcom Pro Tour, Tekken World Tour and the Injustice 2 Pro Series. This means that should you compete in any of these games, you will be awarded league points depending on your placing. Additionally, a $20,000 pot bonus is up for grabs if you’re entering Injustice 2! If your goal is to qualify for the finals of any of the leagues named here, we don’t recommend missing out on this event!

Speaking of pot bonuses, a portion of EVO’s $10,000 prize pool will be going towards Pokken Tournament at Summer Jam XI as a gesture of respect for the Pokken community’s support of their game during the EVO 2017 Player’s Choice poll, where the winning game would join the main lineup as the leading title for their Sunday finals last month.

The cash prizes don’t stop there – Big E Gaming is currently hosting a Twitter poll where the winning game will receive a $500 pot bonus. Killer Instinct is currently in the lead with over 50% of the total votes. If you’re competing in the games listed in the poll below, we recommend submitting your vote!
