While Bae “Knee” Jaemin won CEO 2019, the stacked field provided some stellar highlights throughout the weekend.
Here are 11 of the best moments:
JDCR vs. Obscure
Kim “JDCR” Hyunjin gave Jevante “Obscure” Flint a taste of his own medicine with this play. After getting hit by Obsscure’s Rage Art, JDCR baited out a whiff from the American and punished him with his own Rage Art.
Kkokkoma vs. Knee
Kim “Kkokkoma” Mujong beautifully shut down Knee’s Rage Drive in this play with a quick jab combo followed up with a low to finish him off.
Knee got his revenge in the next game, pulling off this amazing wall carry to win the round.
Chanel vs. Saint
This matchup was one of the most intense fights of the weekend. Choi “Saint” Jinwoo dominated the first game, leaving no room for Kang “Chanel” Seong-ho to take advantage of his pocket character, Julia.
Chanel swapped to Alisa for the second game, and fought back with a perfect round.
With the score tied 2-2, he also made this amazing comeback, which included a perfect counter to Saint’s Rage Art.
Rangchu vs. Book
Jeong “Rangchu” Hyeon-ho faced Nopparut “Book” Hempamorn in the Losers Top 8. Book is one of the best Jin’s in the world, and he showcased his skill with this terrifying combo off the wall, almost taking a perfect round.
Chanel vs. Obscure
With Obscure picking Alisa for their match, Chanel opted for his other pocket character, Eliza. With his obvious knowledge on Alisa, it was fairly easy for Chanel to take over the game.
In this play, Chanel beats Obscure’s power crush with a low and proceeds to deplete his health bar, ending the round with an unneeded, yet fancy unblockable move. Talk about stylish.
Rangchu vs. Kkokkoma
In the losers quarterfinals, Rangchu made an impressive comeback with barely any life left. With a quick launch and an amazing low parry, he ended the round with a well-executed Rage Drive.
JDCR vs. Knee
In the winners finals, JDCR’s Armor King hit Knee’s Geese with two running throws.
But Knee fought back with his own amazing play, hitting this devastating parry and a perfectly-timed Rashomon with one second left on the clock.
