This is about Shanks’ first official tournament in 2023. The fourth place in the finals of the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour 2022-2023 endorses a great performance of the Giants fighter, although it could have been better if not for a problem with the controller in the last game vs. Kayne.
I think fourth place is very good. Maybe I could have done more because I was feeling very good and playing comfortably, but being fourth in the World Championship finals is a good result. I was trying a new controller and I felt very comfortable, I was really liking how I was playing. Against Kayne I started at ease, but in the second game, unfortunately, I had a problem with the controller, there was a desynchronization, maybe I hit it unintentionally.

With a result of four wins and zero losses he advanced to the top 8 through the winner bracket.
His opponent, was a Dragon Ball FighterZ classic, Fenritti. The Japanese is considered one of the great legends of fighting games, defeated Shanks in a very tight set that could have gone to either fighter, so he continued his journey through the loser bracket.
In the loser bracket, Shanks defeated Zane in a great series.which allowed him to advance to the semifinal against an old rival, the Frenchman Kayne. But Kayne’s level, together with the control problem, kept the Catalan from fighting for the podium. Shanks finished fourth in the world, Kayne was third, Wade, second, and Fenritti, first.
