Some of the best SF6 players participated in this tournament to fight for eight Esports World Cup 2024 qualifying spots.

The Street Fighter 6 tournament at DreamHack Dallas 2024 was even more interesting than the recent matches at Combo Breaker. First, the stakes were higher, as we had an EWC 2024 qualifier. This aspect is easy to notice after taking a look at the list of participants — some of the biggest SF6 names were there. And also, it’s been more than a week since the release of a huge game update. The pro competitors had enough time to adapt to the new battle balance, so matches were less chaotic, even if Akuma was eligible to play.

Let’s take the max from the DreamHack Dallas 2024 SF6 tournament! In this post on, you’ll find detailed info on the format, schedule, streams, and players to watch out for. Now, when the event is over, we’ve added the results with a brief recap and highlights of the strongest Street Fighter 6 characters that may help everyone win matches.

DreamHack Dallas 2024 Street Fighter 6 results

Like with the Tekken 8 tournament at DreamHack Dallas 2024, the great tension was even before the final brackets. Players wanted to qualify for the Esports World Cup 2024, and it was enough for them to reach the top 8 for this. Some of the top competitors couldn’t achieve this, such as Punk, Nephew, Fuudo, and AngryBird.

Here are those who qualified:

Top 8 at DreamHack Dallas SF6

In the Top 8 part, gachikun got a confident victory in the semi-final vs Chris Wong, losing only one round. The Japanese player had much more serious difficulties in the winners' final vs Phenom. The opponent reached the match point situation, but then gachikun recovered and performed a reverse sweep.

In the grand final, Problem-X won game 1, but gachikun decided to stop it there. Maybe this is the power of adaptation.

Gachikun is the Street Fighter 6 champion at DreamHack Dallas 2024. Congratulations!
