Is it just me or am I the only one wishing SSF2T was still at majors?

@1 yes and no. it'd be great for a little bit, but then you realize it'll be the same guys for most majors. The ST Games will be great though, definitely looking forward to that.

Obviously this is where people want to sandbag before proving their worth at the biggest tournament of them all :P

Or at least hide a lot of tech.

This event is looking good with all of the big killers showing up. It'll be hard to predict who will win AE 2012.

Why does SF X TKN get streamed for one measly hour on one day when it has more entries than KOF, Tekken, SG, Soul Calibur, and MK9? I mean...JUST the finals? Will there be a way to see the offline matches?

Funny how they miss EMP|Flocker, probably the favourite to win Marvel.

dorayaki said on June 26, 2013 at 8:37 p.m.

Someone explain: Team EG confirmed CEO? Then they go to Japan the following wkend for Charity Cup and then come back to EVO the next wkend??

If so, guess they're trying to pull a Son Goku and come into EVO powered up... or jet-lagged as h3ll - one or the other.
