Updated: Only one person thinks Dhalsim will win EVO 2015... Find out which characters got the most votes in USF4, MKX, SSBM, and SSB4

Updated: The results for our "which characters will win EVO" poll are in. Unfortunately, both Dhalsim and Oni got only one vote a piece in Ultra Street Fighter 4. Be sure to hit the jump to see which characters were voted #1.

Earlier: Fighting gamers from all over the world are beginning to pack their things and start their travels to the biggest tournament of the year. EVO 2015 awaits us in Las Vegas this coming weekend.

As we sit in anticipation, we've decided to create a poll in which you can vote which character will be used to take home a first place victory in each of this year's most popular titles.

We've chosen Ultra Street Fighter 4, Smash 4, Smash Bros. Melee, and Mortal Kombat X because they have all surpassed 1,000 entrants. Surely we have an idea of the strongest characters in each game, but we also have to take into account the strongest players.

History tells us that it's certainly not always the most broken character that wins tournaments to the same caliber as EVO. With that in mind, hit the jump to start voting.

Earlier:Those awaiting the first official look at Tremor in Mortal Kombat X won't have to wait much longer.

Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon sent out a tweet yesterday announcing the details of the next Kombat Kast, which is set to focus on showing off and explaining what Tremor can do. The live stream will air on Tuesday July 21, at 3 p.m. CDT / 1 p.m. PDT / 4 p.m. EDT on NetherRealm's Twitch channel.

What's even more interesting, is that Boon's tweet reads, "New Kombat Kast this Tuesday with (Kombat Pack Final? fighter) Tremor game-play breakdown!" Considering the question mark next to the word "final," there's a good chance Boon is hinting at more DLC characters set to join Mortal Kombat X.

Boon's hints didn't stop there, however.

'Stamina is the most important addition to the series' - Tom Brady talks character choices, MKX system changes, competitive future and more

Disclaimer: The posting of this interview had to be postponed due to various circumstances. The interview was conducted roughly 2 months ago. Much of the interview revolves around game mechanics and longevity, and is still applicable today.

With Mortal Kombat X lighting up tournaments lately, we here at EventHubs decided to reach out to a few players who've spent a lot of time on the game. Our first player interview is with YA|Tom Brady, who discusses his character choice, thoughts on the new system changes implemented in Mortal Kombat X, the game's competitive future, and more.

Here's a snippet to get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: What character(s) are you going to play, and why?

UA|Tom Brady: As of right now, I can't see myself using anyone but Sub-Zero. The game is pretty new, so it's hard to learn all the ins and outs of a new game, while also learning several characters at the same time. Also, Sub-Zero just fits me. It's rare when a player and character complement eachother so well. Sub-Zero's strengths help my weaknesses and my strengths as a player help me overcome his weaknesses as a character.

The gang at Up, Up, Down, Down has come out with both Mortal Kombat X and Street Fighter 4 tournament challenges, wherein the winner gets the illustrious prize, (a power glove), while the loser must face a painful punishment involving either a spoonful of cinnamon or tennis balls.

Since we're in the WWE theme, we've also included a video of Brock Lesnar going to town on a Cadillac with a pair of axes because... why not? The group over at Sleepy Bear Gaming Studio has actually altered said video to mimic the famous car bonus stage of Street Fighter 2.

Multiple updates to tiers sections - MKX list heavily changed, Tanya & Predator added, BlazBlue and Skullgirls reset, Aria available

With the deluge that E3 created this year, we had been a little late in updating our various tiers sections on the website, but we pulled out all of the stops today and got caught up with things.

First off, we added Tanya and Predator to the Mortal Kombat tier listings, plus the list has been shaken up a lot, as a number of characters have swung up or down low recently.

Note that Predator and Tanya barely have any votes currently from the community, so they're currently located in the middle of the list, but that should change soon, as readers start inputting some of their match ups.

Next up, since BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend was recently released, we've reset the tiers, but also added Lambda and Celica into the mix.

Skullgirls got their 2nd Encore out into the wild, and we've added Robo-Fortune into their roster, plus reset their tiers.

Finally, long awaited and requested, Aria is now available for Killer Instinct tier voting.

As always, any time we reset the tiers for a game, we archive them. You can find the archives on the index pages for those respective titles.
