You know, for once maybe I should get up and go to one of these. I've been watching them for the past two years and wondered what it feels like and have been too shy to attend. I'll make it my resolution to go and spectate on the last day or two.

I'm really hoping to make it out to this event, should be fun stuff......Ssfiv finals will probably feel like going to a boxing fight and the main event. I wonder if you can have a few beers in there?

Damn why so many Troll ads lately?!?!

Any rate!.. this will be my 1st EVO cause I'm tired of just watching and wishing. Only live once.
By the way, I wouldn't call the hotel directly and book a room yet. Do your research cause you can find the same rooms for le$$. The price for EVO rooms ( the hotel is all suites by the way) are sunday - Thursday $69 a night and Friday - Saturday $140 a night.
I got room rates through Priceline,obritz, etc.. for $89 to $110 a night. Do the Math!

I'll be there. I am going to give it everything I have to body everyone I face, and win that championship with Juri. It will be hard, But I'm going to try my hardest.

And if I lose...well the event will still be super fun :-)

Alas, I'm going to once again end up just watching all of these tourneys via stream. Since I have no way of attending all of these tournaments. I just hope that what I fear will NOT come to pass... that they will start charging a fee for watching major tournament streams. If that happens, then we're doomed... to pay...

Aww, I was hoping for it to take place on Cesar's Palace again. The Rio is pretty much in the middle of nowhere.

so what games are in this time?
will there be BlazBlue and KoF tournament this time?

shichi said on January 5, 2011 at 9:57 a.m.

I imagine if AE reaches consoles by the end of April then it has a shot at replacing SSF4 at EVO. I'm only saying this because SSF4 came out April 27, 2010, in North America and it made it to EVO 2010.

Ranshi the Rio isn't that far from the strip. plus there are shuttles that run from the Rio to the Strip about every 30min FREE
