Over 15,000 votes were sent in, and the final tallies show that our readers would like to see both Killer Instinct and Blazblue Chrono Phantasma played as main games in Vegas next year.

There are a still four other games that were voted in, so be sure to hit the jump to see if your choices made the cut.

Why did so many people vote for a game thats coming out 2 months, an estimated 60 days before EVO

Skullgirls fans need to get their act together. 15000 funded their donation drive but 95% of them couldn't click a button. (Or maybe the ads turned them away from the website?)

Ultra Street Fighter 4 always #1!

ShinAkiraDesu said on December 24, 2013 at 10:11 a.m.

cause i think many people already imported the game and is being played by a lot of people these days

#6
gost_body said on December 24, 2013 at 10:13 a.m.

Main reason is because its fresh i don't think any one wants to see ae again as its become predictable.

New characters people will be wanting to if anyone picks them up or if anyone can surprise with a fresh character like gamerbee 2010.

New buffs nerfs new gameplay mechanics people will be interested to see if theres any new tech.

And the fact that people want to see the latest installation of the most popular fighting game explored on its biggest stage (EVO Championships).

I thought all this would be obvious.

But no one will know how to properly adapt to it, 60 days is 1,440 hours, not factoring sleep amongst other things, thats not a lot of prep time, and no, the game isn't out yet

#9
Xykes said on December 24, 2013 at 10:17 a.m.

Probably because most Skullgirls fans aren't tourney players who even know what Eventhubs is.

You guys need to realize that the FGC is only a tiny fraction of the overall gaming community. Most consumers of fighting games don't visit SRK or any other fighting game site regularly.

Also, polls like these are fun and all, but they don't represent the ACTUAL number of entrants that a game will receive. It's easy to click a box on the internet. But, actually, buying, playing, and supporting games with money and time in real life? Not so easy.

gost_body said on December 24, 2013 at 10:22 a.m.

I know but you asked why DID they vote for it.

I think the pros out-weights the cons.

only one id change is P4A for KI

ToastyDMY said on December 24, 2013 at 10:30 a.m.

But nobody would really know the game, hell PC users won't even get a chance to even play because PC version comes out in august, it's still a bad release date, and it'd be a better idea to have at least both up there

also if you are at BB tournament player, you should already have Blazblue: Chrono Phantasma.

Damn, Skullgirls could have made it. Oh well, top 6 seem like good enough choices.

Injustice will probably pay its way into evo. No worry.

#19
gammabolt17 said on December 24, 2013 at 11:02 a.m.

Perfect. I wish Project M could be played there, but any Smash is good Smash. Still haven't seen CP in action either, so that would be really exciting.

#20
Existent said on December 24, 2013 at 11:04 a.m.

Smash Bros. at 3.
VF at the bottom.

Just kill me and get it over with.

By the time EVO comes around, everyone would have moved on to ultra and no one would be interested in AE 2012 anymore. Not enough prep is honestly not a good reason to not have ultra.

#25
Ninjanuity said on December 24, 2013 at 11:43 a.m.

Love it or hate it, Smash most definitely belongs in the lineup.

That TTT2 only made 8th is complete and utter bullsh*t. Those who didn't vote from Kor's Academy page are online players. SMH...

#28
iMTopTier said on December 24, 2013 at 11:46 a.m.

you are talking about tournament players

they practice for HOURS so they will adapt in 60 days
sure they won't find everything in the game but they will find what they need to know at the moment

iMTopTier said on December 24, 2013 at 11:48 a.m.

those 2 games died

they don't have those classic games on the main stage because most people don't vote for them but they always have side tournaments

awesome blazblue made the list,although this really dosent mean anything.
Still kewl.

Last years EVO view count for Melee says it all, people love Smash.

EDIT: Probably should be noted that this is NOT an official list. We will see what EVO decides.

Tekken Tag 2 should be a side tourney, not a main.

Isn't KI dead yet? I guess it deserves the one-and-done EVO spot, though.

#37

Chrono Phantasma will probably get P4A treatment. I am perfectly okay with that.

Paradonyx said on December 24, 2013 at 12:22 p.m.

UMvC3 came in 2nd? What, do people really enjoy watching the same thing over again? Granted, some players like Moons do really well with the characters they LIKE, but...

PsychoCrusha said on December 24, 2013 at 12:28 p.m.

Smash was hype this year, and generated more views than AE. Don't know why some of you guys are surprised at its inclusion in the lineup.

#42
KingKong said on December 24, 2013 at 12:30 p.m.

Sucks for 3D fighters... anyway I'm glad that SF4, MVC3 and KOF are in the top 6

#43
Gotomaster said on December 24, 2013 at 12:33 p.m.

To people complaining about Ultra coming to Evo, remember that Evo is both a tournament as well as a spectacle. Besides, it isn't like Sf4 is changing on a fundamental lvl, it isn't a completely new game. Even Combofiend mentioned that most characters will be retaining their basic strategy and bnbs. Lastly, wouldn't it be fun to go into a tournament where the top-tiers aren't completely fleshed out, and strategies aren't more thoroughly explored? What ever happen to having fun with these games, it has to be all about completely meticulous competition.

#44
Snow said on December 24, 2013 at 12:44 p.m.

I didn't even see that poll until just now.

#45
Chrisuchiwa said on December 24, 2013 at 12:46 p.m.

BBCP is too much fun I spent like 80 bucks in order to get it and I am enjoying so much.

Just remember that BBCP had at least 150 entrants at NEC8 and the top 4 team tournament was really hype. Marvel and USF4 are guaranted as always.

#46
Ninjanuity said on December 24, 2013 at 12:47 p.m.

They're still probably sold on the whole "not a competitive fighting game" BS and hopped on the bandwagon with the rest of the morons.

It's funny how people knock on Smash all the time online, but when you go to meet people face-to-face who actually go to tournaments, you hear nothing but positive things about the game. The anti-Smash circle-jerk doesn't exist in reality, because you appear nothing more than a close-minded idiot.

Eye_of_Orochi said on December 24, 2013 at 12:50 p.m.

They did...at first. The game went through some BS but it is sooo much better now. Too bad there are so many folks so far set in their ways when it comes to that game and will never give the game the second chance it deserves.

Seems BlazBlue is getting met with less indifference lately. About time!

#49
Jason said on December 24, 2013 at 12:53 p.m.

Shame Skullgirls didn't make it into the top 6. The game deserves some more time in the lime light, especially since the Encore update has made the game faster and more fun than ever before.

SnakeX said on December 24, 2013 at 1:09 p.m.

This. SFxT is actually really solid now and has a lot of similarities to older games such as CvS2, but people aren't willing to give it a chance in an objective manner. Seriously, if CvS2 had come out in this era of fighting games, the average fighting game player that started playing in '09 and later would probably hate it. Guys like Justin Wong have said the same.

#55
SnakeX said on December 24, 2013 at 1:09 p.m.

This isn't the official list. Just an Event Hubs fan poll.

I love how the headline makes it seem like KI and BBCP were the top two choices EH readers picked.

tortoos said on December 24, 2013 at 2 p.m.

At least I agree with 3 out of the top 6. I actively dislike marvel, 4, and smash but I can't say I'm surprised to see them there either. Sucks to be a TTT 2 or VF fan. I watched the TTT 2 finals last year, that was way hyper than anything I saw out of 4, marvel, or smash. I'm alright for KI provided it doesn't get ruined by microsoft's draconian anti-piracy measures. I don't think it'll be that good of a game but it'll probably at least be exciting to watch.

#62
BoJackson said on December 24, 2013 at 2:05 p.m.

For people confused as to why USF beat out AE by a huge margin, keep in mind that most people voting aren't really thinking about it, and just want to see whatever iteration of Street Fighter is newest.

#63
Raiden365 said on December 24, 2013 at 2:10 p.m.

KOF & BBCP?? YES!!!!!!! Also congrats to KI. Gonna miss having a 3D fighter on main stage though. RIP Tekken?????

kentoirc said on December 24, 2013 at 2:29 p.m.

No Tekken?! I'm out.

#65
heyhey said on December 24, 2013 at 2:43 p.m.

seeing as #6 -14 are all within 2.5% of the vote and the top 3 are all double those votes, maybe a second round of voting would give more insight into where the synergy in the fgc is.... which would help evo grow as an event.

#66
Guybrush20X6 said on December 24, 2013 at 2:47 p.m.

Well this is unofficial. Still if more people from the SG fandom had known about this, I bet it'd be higher. A close lose as it is anyway.

#67
swagneto said on December 24, 2013 at 2:53 p.m.

Man I gotta say these results are pretty solid. I'd love to see the top six voted here + tekken. I think tekken deserves a spot as a main game. Would like to see p4a too, as it was the highlight of evo for me this year, but Japan is already playing the sequel.

#68
ridgezero said on December 24, 2013 at 2:54 p.m.

I agree with everything in top 6 except for BlazBlue. I think Tekken Tag 2 deserves to be there. Just on the fact that not everyone has access to the newest version of BlazBlue.

#69

Ya know I'm honestly surprised that Project M isn't being considered, then again it might be because it's a mod and Nintendo probably wouldn't be ok with that even though Sakurai knows about it.

My dream of having Chaos Code and Aquapazza at EVO got denied.... Oh well, was planning on going to evo and showing off my skills in those games and taking it home if they would've made it in there. And knowing Mr Wizard, he'll probably choose half of the top 6 listed games here while adding in Injustice or Tag 2. Seriously, they really need to think about doing a "Classic Evo" tournament at next year's line up and or just add another tournament solely based on classic games. Namely CVS2 along with MVC2, 3rd Strike, Super Turbo, King Of Fighters and another SNK game.

#79
J said on December 24, 2013 at 4:23 p.m.

Would be the worst EVO right out of the gate. ResidentSleeper

#80
JumpMan33 said on December 24, 2013 at 4:31 p.m.

I would like to see Project M in place of Melee just to change things up a bit. This is the last Evo before Smash 4, and it would be cool to see it make to at lest one Evo. I guess the main thing that's holding it back is that its an unofficial mod made by the community and Nintendo might step in to stop the stream.

#81
iMTopTier said on December 24, 2013 at 4:47 p.m.

that game is not competitive at all
smash aint either but people will die if they cancel smash

Obviously the damn Americans dun wanna be owned embarrassingly by the Japanese who treat this 3D fighter like a God; in which they are right: VF is the mother of all 3D fighters.

No Tekken either since the South Koreans control the Mishima Empire with their 'Iron Fingers'.

KataM said on December 24, 2013 at 6 p.m.

I can understand the 3D games to be at the botton, because this site is mostly about 2D fighters. But come on, I don't care how many views had Smash past year, we already know Smash community is huge and that they will suport their game to the end, FGC is a different thing. I mean, they do side tournaments with Pokemon and stuff like that. Last year was ok because it was for charity, but if a classic is going to be there it should be a 2D classic.

#93
MysticBoudha said on December 24, 2013 at 6:01 p.m.

KI is a joke. Id actually prefer Project M over melee and i definitely want Chrono Phantasma to be there.

#94
Ninjanuity said on December 24, 2013 at 6:10 p.m.

I main Samus, you dolt.

I don't care if Smash isn't a fighting game. It's a fun as hell game that can be played competitively as well, and it more than deserves a spot on EVO's lineup, especially considering it got more concurrent viewers than your precious AE. Learn to grow the eff up and open your mind.

#95
likewoah said on December 24, 2013 at 6:16 p.m.

"Pretty sad that Killer Instinct made it up there. I guess Microsoft marketers are still here."

Here's another thought: Maybe people actually like the game?

And for those complaining about Smash, it gets views and it has players.

If people are going to argue, as in the past, of things like Marvel over KOF because of stream viewership, then what's the problem all of a sudden of a game with stream numbers other games would kill for making it in?
