Cuddle_Core is a Tekken 7 player representing Equinox Gaming, where she is the only female in the US top 20. An accomplished gamer, Cuddle_Core also has a passion for art and even studied it in school. Even though she is a female in a male-dominated space, she is looking to also show the Korean players that the US is here to compete. At her two most recent events, CEO and Combo Breaker, Cuddle_Core lost to both CHANEL and JDCR. With JDCR now in the competition by winning the qualifier, Cuddle_Core will not only be looking to get her revenge on him, but will attempt to take down Knee, JeonDDing, and LowHigh as well.
Girl Power! In the most dominating performance of her career, Cuddle_Core dismantled some of the strongest male Tekken players in the scene during the ELEAGUE Tekken Team Takedown last year. During the Captain’s Challenge to determine play order, Cuddle_Core was pinned against Red Bull Esports Athlete and fellow WSOE 7 competitor Anakin, who is the top ranked US player. In a huge upset, not only did she beat Anakin, but she completely dominated him. To show that it wasn’t a one-off win, Cuddle_Core beat Anakin in 6 straight rounds in their next meeting. She then went on to beat the rest of his team, including NGObscure, Joey Fury, and Spero Gin. We know we’ll be watching to see if Cuddle_Core can repeat her previously dominating performance verse her all-male competitors at WSOE 7!
