It was a festive atmosphere in the lobby of the Allen Event Center, with sales stalls and photo opportunities for cosplay, and of course, Overwatch and staff. The main show in there was flooded with fan shirts, plaques for the favorite players and roaring crowds for every win.
For fans like Dallas's Marcos Irvera, it was a dream come true to come to an event and support Dallas Fuel without having to travel to Los Angeles. "It would be like a vacation for me.Take a week off from work, go there, buy tickets.It's not exactly the same thing if you're on the street," said Irvera. "I think we showed L.A how to make some noise."
Dallas' fuel players were happy to play in front of a hometown crowd for the first time. Dylan Babignet (AKM) said: "It was incredible for us as players. It was amazing to finally have a taste of what's to come next year."
