Catching up with EQNX: SFV Edition

Since it's release in 2016, Street Fighter V has created some amazing moments in the Fighting Game Community. Both online and offline, new characters and mechanics have forced players to adapt to the evolving competitive landscape. We took some time to catch up with some of EQNX's SFV competitors and commentators (Brian_F, Filipinoman, and Flexiss) to see how they're feeling about the current state of the game. How do you feel about competitive balance of SFV currently? Brian_F: The balance for SFV has been in really good shape since Season 4, and has been improving since then. Now that we are...

Coaching in the FGC

Coaching in the FGC

One of fighting games’ largest draws when compared to other esports is the singular nature of their competition. When two players face off, more often than not, the better player that day will emerge victoriously. However, that singular nature sometimes leads players to believe that the work leading up to a player’s success was also done alone. In fact, the opposite is true. While success in fighting games is heavily dependent on players’ effort, there are a variety of people behind the scenes from practice partners to locals and even coaches. Coaching in the FGC has never truly found its footing, especially...

A Year In Review: EQNX in 2020

At the start of 2020, EQNX was ready for the team's biggest year yet. New signings to bolster both the player roster and support staff put the team in a position for success across the world. While the success did appear early on, the arrival of COVID-19 shut down events and quickly left the team confused on our direction for the year. That did not last long, as the dedication and hard work from everyone on EQNX made 2020 the team’s most impactful and exciting year yet.

What Does EQNX Do in the Offseason?

The offseason is always an odd time for competitors. Players move teams, changes are made for the competitive season and there is lots of time for practice. With the extended offseason for 2020, here’s an inside look to Equinox in the offseason. Equinox started 2020 by announcing the team’s newest player, Ulsan. Shortly after, the team took on Evo Japan as well as the EQNX vs. World First-to-Ten streams with KuroKuro including Jyotaro and Joey Fury. During Evo Japan, Ulsan fought his way to Equinox’s first top eight of the year including his infamous “Kill Leroy” phone screen. After Evo Japan, the...

FireWolf's First EVO

Posted by Tanner Hinders on

FireWolf's First EVO
Ever since I first became involved with the Fighting Game Community in 2017, attending the Evolution Championship Series has been a goal for me. This year, I finally achieved that goal with the rest of Equinox Gaming. Even though I did not compete this year, EVO was still an eye-opening experience for me regarding how much I still have to learn about fighting games. The weekend was long and tiring but well worth it. Watching the Equinox players compete only added to the intensity. The memories made at my first ever EVO are some that I will remember forever.
