Recently, Talon eSports, an organization established in Hong Kong, signed HotDog29 as one of their FGC players. HotDog, also known by his Twitter handle of HotDogIsTasty, will divide his attention between Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 for any tournaments he attends.

Talon eSports was initially founded as a group that specializes in MOBAs such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends, but they have recently expanded into the territory of fighting games this year. The signing of HotDog29 marks their first step into a new world, a move that shows promise.
As far as Street Fighter is concerned, HotDog29, an M.Bison specialist in SFV, is currently ranked at #22 for the Asia Regional Leaderboards from the Capcom Pro Tour, and by extension, #74 on the Global Leaderboards. His points were earned through the following achievements:
- 9th place at Esports Festival Hong Kong
- 4th place at Saigon Cup 2017
- 7th place at Abudget Cup 2017
- 49th place at Evolution 2017 (out of about 2,600 players)
As we head towards the end of 2017, the quality of competition to be seen in upcoming FGC events continues to grow at a monstrous rate. HotDog29 will be racing against time to push himself into the qualifying territory for this year’s Capcom Cup, and he’ll also be competing to earn points for the Tekken World Tour as a Tekken 7 player.
Congratulations to HotDog29 for starting his new chapter with Talon eSports!
