what about Melee notable players?

#4
Shinebox said on July 9, 2013 at 9:21 p.m.

another notable player is KichijojiKen since he's another high level Ken from Japan. I would actually say he's higher level than Momochi and MOV

I believe this is his first time at Evo

#5
HiryuMK said on July 9, 2013 at 9:23 p.m.

So hyped for this year's EVO!

Man I pray so much that daigo takes it but I doubt it :( I dont wanna wait any longer ^_^

@ #5 I dont know if I would say KichijojiKen is better than Momochi or MOV but he is definetly another notable player. one of japans top Kens with Momochi, Michael Tan, MOV and LeviStrauss

For Europe, there is CDV Whiteblack with Zak Bennett

#14
chipndip said on July 9, 2013 at 9:59 p.m.

So it takes the community to get some of the other games some proper stream time? Man, that's whack. Good stuff to those making sure Tekken, Persona, ans SF X TKN don't get thrown by the wayside.

#15
NoizyChild said on July 9, 2013 at 10:18 p.m.

Forgive my ignorance, but how do pool streams work? Do they just go to random stations? Or can you pick which station to watch?

#16
Ariesno said on July 9, 2013 at 10:20 p.m.

Yes! KaraStorm...THX

#17
SendTriumph2Evo said on July 9, 2013 at 10:24 p.m.

no KOF players? no Romance, Mr. KOF or Bala? and why isn't VXG labeled next to yipes or dieminion? i thought they sorted that out and were returning the donations?

#18
julio_anima said on July 9, 2013 at 10:29 p.m.

My utmost gratitude to Karastorm and others who helped in making SFxT pools stream comes true. The SFxT pools will have many excellent matches and moments and it's great we won't be missing it now. Again, thanks!

You guys forgot Chocoblanka

#20
Weltall said on July 9, 2013 at 10:44 p.m.

Literally about 70% of the Japanese players aren't listed including many AE killers. Don't make a list like this unless you are actually going to populate it...

#21
BlackMasamune said on July 9, 2013 at 10:51 p.m.

Yeah, just listen to the most recent episode of UltraChen TV to find out notable players for each game and add the names and polls to this story.

Is Alex Valle attending?

Who is NGL|Marq Teddy? I've never heard of them until this list.

#26
Smorgasboard said on July 9, 2013 at 11:47 p.m.

Will the 7 vs 7 and the 3 vs 3 happen at the same time?

#27
stream_monster said on July 9, 2013 at 11:48 p.m.

No mention of Dakou? I guess a lot of notable players were left off the list, can't get every single one on there.

#28
jesuslovessatan said on July 10, 2013 at midnight

@27 the exhibition isnt official so i would assume its a salty suite affair.

I am so damn hype!!! been waiting all year to see somebody beat chris and i feel hes gonna either be out before top 8 or at least in losers. not since justin have we seen somebody have such a target on his head! AE is gonna be hype of course and it really is a toss up! go usa. my science help you all.

Hope Japanese players make a splash in KOF. Haregoro, Woo, and Koukou to be specific. Hope it's not a free win for MadKOF!

Good to know Tekken/P4A pools will get streams, even if they are unofficial. I've also heard there's a SCV side tournament happening on Saturday, but not really sure...

#34
godfist314 said on July 10, 2013 at 1:27 a.m.

Wow, you dudes at Eventhubs are really stepping up your coverage of top players and Evo! I'm just overwhelmed by all the information out there.

#35
GodismyRock said on July 10, 2013 at 1:37 a.m.

Please add VGBootCamp to the steamers list. We're streaming a lot of melee pools:

There should be an EVO app so we can follow the updates and brackets. Imagine how useful would be to have alerts like: The stream for SSFIV finals is starting now!

If Chris G doesn't win MvC3, I sincerely hope he congratulates his opponents.

#50
Razberryclownsac said on July 10, 2013 at 7:37 a.m.

Really hard to vote against Chris in Marvel, but like someone said, he's has a huge bullseye on his back right now. For AE, I went Sako. Don't choke.

#59

AHAHAHAHAH Mike Ross XDDDDDD (seriously him take AE)

#60
NYCraziSalvi516 said on July 10, 2013 at 9:55 a.m.

LOL You know people only voted for mike ross so he can be in 4th place.

#61
Smorgasboard said on July 10, 2013 at 9:56 a.m.

@59
Because most people thought the poll is for who you want to win and not who you think will win. There should be an option for "myself" because that's the real person that everyone wants to win the most.

#62
KIDGoggles said on July 10, 2013 at 10:14 a.m.

Forever curse with 4th place.

LOL @ Mike Ross.

#63
Z3R0 said on July 10, 2013 at 10:18 a.m.

Looking forward Gamerbee. He will be one of the best this year again.
Is kyoku also at evo? Or another good yang player?

Is KaneBlueRiver attending EVO? Because i want to see his hulk team, it's great.

For Melee...any good Bowser is good for me. Is there anybody good with him?

And I hope for a great Flame-Yori player. My all-time fav :) is there also a player who is proficient with him?

Main hype this year on SSF4, UMVC3 and KOF13, maybe Melee too. This is gonna be fun.

#64
JIHADJOE said on July 10, 2013 at 10:28 a.m.

@59
Coz that's the script yo! He has to come 4th place in everything, even in polls!

Nemo for UMVC3.

#68
Kaxner said on July 10, 2013 at 5:51 p.m.

@25

Not too great as always. Tokido, Abegen, Mamespider or Tatsu can make top 32 but IMO not top 8 unless they get lucky.

#69
Microboy90 said on July 10, 2013 at 10:30 p.m.

Yeaaaahh!! EVO 2013 FRIDAY!!

#70
jakeiswasted said on July 11, 2013 at 4:06 a.m.

organic, rude, hype, grassroots FGC wins over corporate, boring, whiter-than-white, censored SC2. at least one thing is right with the world.

hmm, i hope bonchan takes it (AE ofc), i think he deserves it after so many years of beating the top players.

i dont think chrisg morridoom wins mvc3, i think flocker beats him earlier than the finals. maybe fchamp/nemo/yipes/PRrog?

#71
scytheavatar said on July 11, 2013 at 4:59 a.m.

@30 sounds correct for me, when was the last time Poongko ever did well in an AE tourney? He has more or less been exposed as a fraudulent scrub now that people know how to deal with Seth.

#72
Dragonage2ftw said on July 11, 2013 at 5:09 p.m.

So, when will Skullgirls be streaming, and how many people have entered the SG tournement so far?
