First and foremost a HUGE thanks goes to Tony "Ponder" Cannon, who went out of his way a number of times throughout EVO to provide results and do things to keep the community in the loop. He was easily the single biggest contributor to this story.

A very special thanks goes to the Level|Up Series guys for being so helpful and nice. Also, Seth Killian, Arlieth, Chris Li, MediaDarling, Justice, Nyoronoru, James Chen, Mr. Wizard, Karaface and Tom Cannon for their support — plus the many other people I know I'm forgetting.

Also, kudos to Poke, PHB and Axefresh for contributing to this story.

Jarkyttaa said on July 11, 2010 at 8:57 p.m.

Ono's speech is about the most under-whelming thing ever. Let's hope the announcement at Comicon is worth it.

IrPanda said on July 11, 2010 at 8:59 p.m.

Jaf said on July 11, 2010 at 9:08 p.m.

Prod said on July 11, 2010 at 10:38 p.m.

ROFLMAO
thats the 2nd time daigo goes to USA and win.

its like having somebody to come to your house and fück your girl!!!!

RandomJohn said on July 11, 2010 at 10:40 p.m.

The only thing I was disappointed about is the fact stream went off every so often when a cruical match was on including the last match between Ricky and Daigo. Even though I can watch it later on youtube, etc it was very annoying. Other than that, gj guys.

topsecret335 said on July 11, 2010 at 10:41 p.m.

level up sucks.. worst streaming service EVER!!!!!!!!! Don't quit your day jobs...

TheParryIsPro said on July 11, 2010 at 10:41 p.m.

damn levelUp, you f*cked up.

yes4me said on July 11, 2010 at 10:46 p.m.

I really wanted gamerbee to fight the beast in the final. He got closed but his character is just too hard to win against Honda who can stop his air movement with just one button. It kind of sucks. oh well... maybe next time he will have another character in his pocket... or maybe (even better) Capcom would improve Adon when the arcade version comes out.

Grimmjow316 said on July 11, 2010 at 10:46 p.m.

This feels like the Nixon tapes thanks Level up trying to boost their youtube channels post the whole damn tournament I want to see Hakan and Vangief

DRain said on July 11, 2010 at 10:48 p.m.

@471 Same here. Would've been neat to see a newcomer with an unexpected character go against the best.

kr3wman said on July 11, 2010 at 10:52 p.m.

lol Clovr4lyf stop trolling.

PhinnyCupcakes said on July 11, 2010 at 10:52 p.m.

This tournament sucked a LOT more than the last one... Bunch of people I don't know in the top 8, and then Daigo. It was too predictable.

IrPanda said on July 11, 2010 at 10:53 p.m.

@Clovr4lyf aka troll4lyf :P(kidding )

Just because a lot of people pick him doesnt mean he is over powered.

A ryu didnt win TvC or HDR

archer said on July 11, 2010 at 10:54 p.m.

The biggest story of evo, bigger than daigo winning, was justin losing so early. So I guess justin finally beat daigo at something.

Axefresh said on July 11, 2010 at 10:55 p.m.

Watch. Slasher is going to come into the comments and advertise Live on 3 again. What a tool, capitalizing on something out of level-up's control (the internet at the venue).

Deadds said on July 11, 2010 at 10:55 p.m.

level UP should change their name to Level DOWN.

Freeman said on July 11, 2010 at 10:55 p.m.
DarkBurialX said on July 11, 2010 at 10:55 p.m.

I want to see Gamerbee or Infiltration face Daigo in the finals. I didn't expect the stream will go down during Richy and Daigo's match. I'll watch it when they upload the video and see what happened.

VegaBisonAbel said on July 11, 2010 at 10:56 p.m.

1. levelup stream has failed all 25k of its viewers, but I doubt that's gonna stop them from streaming or people watching the stream
2. even tho ricky was somewhat toe to toe with daigo, he was missing combos left and right.
3. Adam sessler sucks, good thing seth killian was there to catch his balding head
4. Daigo is just too good

Akro said on July 11, 2010 at 10:56 p.m.

Clovr4lyfe, ur still trolling because you didn't put individual skills in the calculation. Daigo is a BEAST. How many ryus reached top 16? Only one. If you know anything about Street Fighter you would realize how great a level he was playing at. Bow down btch, keep getting owned by Ryu scrubs online.

Lue said on July 11, 2010 at 10:56 p.m.

They shut down their youtube comments page. Well !@#$ them. Not only do they !@#$ up the most important moment of evo for those of us who can't make it, but they also fail to take any responsibility.

Freeman said on July 11, 2010 at 10:57 p.m.

Sorry, it's not the final match :P

WorstGiefEVER said on July 11, 2010 at 10:57 p.m.

aAa Kayane

In marvel it was EMP Yipes and EMP Sanford

IrPanda said on July 11, 2010 at 10:58 p.m.

@phinnycupcake
What the hell are you talking about this was the bess tourny i eva saw. Only problems were the stream.
The first one was to laggy,
The second would drop because to many people came on it.
Just because people you dont know werent in the top 8 makes it a bad tourny??? Everyone in the top 8 was great, all the matches were pretty tight except a few were the match up led to a steam roll.
EVO2K10=BEST EVO EVER

g4 should have aired the tourney on TV instead of gracing us with pointless ep of cops, cheaters, etc.

BlackHart said on July 11, 2010 at 11:03 p.m.

To Ricky Ortiz & Mike Ross if your reading this, Thanx for holding it down for the US, even though you didn't bring home the gold I pride myself in seeing you guys show the world the States is more than just Tier whores, & predictable spammers.

And to Gamerbee & Vangief, thanx for showing foo's that it's not always about the character in the battle, but the player behind the character. I'll use that inspiration and take a chance online with someone other than my usuals.

Mourne said on July 11, 2010 at 11:04 p.m.

Pretty dull EVO overall; some nice players made a name for themselves like Gamerbee, but aside from that... kind of the same old. Without Justin against Daigo in the finals, there wasn't much to get excited about.

Daigo's hadokens until they jump then shoryuken, back to hadokens, wait for a chance to FADC->Ultra, rinse-repeat has gotten a little boring after all this time. Daigo is still #1, but unless someone else decides to mirror with Ryu to counter him--the best character in the game overall, without a doubt, as far as match-ups are concerned--it's unlikely Daigo's really going to lose this.

I can only hope we get some new characters for this game by next year.

@Axefresh

Level Up stream was great all weekend minus a few hiccups. I don't blame them at all, it just happens sometimes. Match is up on YouTube now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_jAoG...

It's so painful to see Daigo win over and over..

Slasher said on July 11, 2010 at 11:06 p.m.

Er, my link is wrong, that's the clipped version. Level Up version not up yet.

fabulos said on July 11, 2010 at 11:09 p.m.

oh and I hope that Ono's game is evrything but Darkstalkers, that series suck. Capcom vs SNK3 please, since SNK is no longer able to produce a decent King of Fighters.

Jarkyttaa said on July 11, 2010 at 11:10 p.m.

My guess for Comic-con is Darkstalkers and either 1.) DLC characters announced or 2.) SSFIV for the PC announced... preferably both.

Shotosaurus said on July 11, 2010 at 11:12 p.m.

@492

Ricky Ortiz not a tier whore? Whatever you say, man.

bamx said on July 11, 2010 at 11:12 p.m.

@Morune
How is this year dull? The only predictable part was Daigo winning. Everything else was unexpected.

As for hadokens until they jump then shoryuken. You really think it's that easy? There are so many ways to punish fireball or get around them it's not even funny. Ryu won because Daigo used Ryu, not because of some stupid hadoukens to shoryuken crap.

Jarkyttaa said on July 11, 2010 at 11:12 p.m.

Also, wasn't there an announcement that MvC3's level 3's for the current roster would be shown at EVO? Did that not pan out or was that actually planned for Comicon and I was mistaken?

Pig_Red said on July 11, 2010 at 11:14 p.m.

Congrats to Level-Down Offline for releasing their bowels over everyone during the final match of Evo. Buy a couple backup cameras next time, dudes - if there is a next time.

Dan34 said on July 11, 2010 at 11:17 p.m.

@502 idk what was promised but lv 3 was unlocked for evo. iron man did a lv 3 at the end and chris started his up but got hit out of it really fast ( I think I saw some type of big gun)

Krabe said on July 11, 2010 at 11:17 p.m.

Please, don't feed the troll number 493 :)

VegaBisonAbel said on July 11, 2010 at 11:18 p.m.

Mike ross was so crazy in his infiltration fight. Loved that one 18 hit combo he did where Mike just mauled infiltration to the corner, haven't seen mike ross play this high a level before.

Sektah84 said on July 11, 2010 at 11:20 p.m.

Kinda tight it messed up at the end and couldn't see the final battle but good to see daigo win once again they just need a better set up of camera next year and hopefully just show it on g4 live. Was that Ricky Ortiz dude gay? He sure act and look like it lol

John said on July 11, 2010 at 11:21 p.m.

It was a good EVO. Next time there will be backup cameras to the backup cameras that backup more cameras, I'm almost sure of it.

Cheers!

Jarkyttaa said on July 11, 2010 at 11:21 p.m.

Ah shoot, I saw some of it, but the feed went wacky on me for a bit, so I didn't see all of it, then when it came back the exhibition was ending. Oh well, I'll wait for the archives.

Jaf said on July 11, 2010 at 11:21 p.m.

Props to the top 5 players for repping 4 different countries...all in all it was NOT the Japanese domination that a lot of people were expecting. This is a sign that the world is more or less on even grounds now, I mean none of these players got there by fluke.

Jarkyttaa said on July 11, 2010 at 11:25 p.m.

I think people really need to be giving Level Up props instead of being salty that a free service didn't go off without a hitch. They provided solid stream for the whole weekend aside from the first couple of hours and the final match, coupled with generally top-quality announcers and tons of foresight so that stream viewers didn't have to watch button checks. If you really want their streams to go off without a hitch, I'm sure you won't mind paying for the service.

AC4A said on July 11, 2010 at 11:25 p.m.

Everyone needs to chill out, stream went down because it was almost hitting 30K. It was a good tournament, just USA didn't take it doesn't mean it was a bad tournament. There was some great display of high level play and the amount of hype was crazy.

All an all, everyone had fun... except the Salty people

Go ahead and pick who's salty =P

IrPanda said on July 11, 2010 at 11:25 p.m.

Why are people saying stuff about better cameras, didnt the stream crash because of to many people as it did a couple other time tonight?

fabulos said on July 11, 2010 at 11:26 p.m.

@493: haters gonna hate. Daigo's execution is unmatched. There was only one Ryu in the top16. It's all about THE SKILLS behind the character.
@499: hope that its not Darkstalkers, it sucks. DLC 4 SSF4 is a possibility.

ChiquitaLuchador said on July 11, 2010 at 11:28 p.m.

Thanks so much Level Up for posting a terrific stream!!! yes, there were a few difficultys, but overall we loved it and stayed tuned the entire time!!! I cant believe there are so many ungrateful people complaining! If it wasnt for them, we wouldnt have even gotten footage until later. Thanks again Level Up, i hope some rude people dont discourage you from doing this in the future!!! :)

BWBoyToucher said on July 11, 2010 at 11:34 p.m.

@Jarkyttaa
Stop trolling. There are tons of regionals that can pull off a decent stream. It's nice that Evo goes the extra mile with tons of cameras and whatnot, but really unnecessary. It's something that can be done on a laptop with a one-time investment of $30 for a capture card and about $20 for the appropriate cables. Hell, with HDTVs you can get acceptable video quality simply from pointing a cell phone camera at the screen.

I could gladly kick you in the nuts for free, so I hope if I ever choose to do so you give me props rather than being salty about it.

VegaBisonAbel said on July 11, 2010 at 11:34 p.m.

they really shoulda had tv cameras for this one to show live on G4. This woulda been some very compelling TV, especially the Top 8.

BWBoyToucher said on July 11, 2010 at 11:36 p.m.

The stream wouldn't crash because of too many people. The stream only has to send data to two locations: stickam and ustream. From there, it's the gigantic stickam/ustream servers that handle the traffic, and those servers snicker at 30K viewers the way Daigo snickers at a pad Chun.

The stream crashed because Evo hired shît to do a man's work, plain and simple.

NeoSmoke said on July 11, 2010 at 11:37 p.m.

I was hoping Vangief,Gamer Bee and Infiltration would of won there matches they just barely lost. I dislike Rufus and seeing another predictable Daigo vs. Rufus match is getting cliche now I already know who's going to win. Ortiz and JWong aren't going to beat Daigo with Rufus. Personally I think Gamer Bee or Infiltration had the best chance of defeating Daigo. Daigo has had problems with good Akuma's before. Also Daigo and Gamer Bee have fought each other like 20+ times online at least with both defeating each other in close matches.

Remster said on July 11, 2010 at 11:40 p.m.

@Neosmoke

I 100% agree with you, but mostly because I really wanted to see a Gamerbee against Daigo final.

FarkAydeGhil420 said on July 11, 2010 at 11:40 p.m.

Japan wouldn't even be in top 8 if it weren't for daigo. Daigo is on another level, the rest of japan is about even with the rest of the world.

Grimmjow316 said on July 11, 2010 at 11:48 p.m.

I give props to Ross for trying against the beast but more props for beating Gamerbee that was an incredible match. As for Ortiz and Vangief seriously it should be one character in the tourney IMO how can you continue to say the game is balanced if they still allow counter picking it defeats the purpose wasn't that the reason for Ultra II to begin with. The minute Ortiz made it I knew Daigo was going to take it shame Infiltration lost to Ortiz I was hoping for him to make it to the finals.

MokiSenpai said on July 11, 2010 at 11:51 p.m.

It's not the haters, it's the sponsores. Who do you think will give LevelUp work after this? They name will ring badly for months in the community. They seriously phucked.

Gorav said on July 11, 2010 at 11:51 p.m.

I very hope there isn't going to be too many new Adon's. GamerBee kinda helped me with my stragey though and he knocked some top players all in all give it up for GAMERBEE!

One question does anyone know how got the Rising Star Award the stream cut out.

AceKombat said on July 11, 2010 at 11:53 p.m.

LevelUp screwed up big for being unable to stream the grand finals and not give the viewers a proper ending speech to end the stream . The only moments that was shown fine for them was JWong losing and Scumbag incident .

Mourne said on July 11, 2010 at 11:54 p.m.

Level-Up did a great job after switching to Ustream. Next year, they should consider splitting it between two different streams to handle the load. Nonetheless, they did a fine job and did far better than most others would with that kind of pressure.

@bamx: If you know the ending to a movie, the rest really has trouble holding up. Outside of the emergence of some nice players and Justin getting knocked out by Gamerbee, and Gamberbee then lighting up people pretty consistently, there wasn't much to it. It was decent enough, but a far cry from last year.

I never claimed his base strategy was easy, but it is predictable. Very. No one can beat it because it is a very clean match-up against much of the roster. Super 4 is a very well-balanced game, but Daigo's strategy is not one that can be beat by a great many characters. Coupled with his execution and adaptability, we end up with a very predictable result most of the time he's involved.

I used to be very excited to see Daigo matches--just not quite as much any longer. It doesn't mean I dislike what he does in matches or detract anything from his accomplishments; he's effective, and anyone who says otherwise isn't approaching it the right way. Simply put: I'm not entertained by him in supposedly "intense" situations just because it's him playing in a tournament. Ricky is a great player, but he wasn't going to win. People can say what they want, yet the only time it will ever really be exciting is when it comes down to what we had last year and Justin holding his own for so long.

@Krabe: Love it! Just because someone disagrees it means they're a troll, eh? EventHubs has always been a shining example of the internet's... brightest. Keep up the good work; dunno how this place would last without you.

@N: GamerBee would've been very exciting, and Justin as well (although I don't think he would've won, it would've been a better match than we got with Daigo vs. Ricky). All the same, we shouldn't forget about Arturo. He and Daigo have had extremely close first to five matches and I think he could beat him in the tournament format.

BlackHart said on July 12, 2010 at 12:05 a.m.

@500

I meant an overall showing of american players in general.

That coulda been worded better though.

DRain said on July 12, 2010 at 12:10 a.m.

@527 Naw man, Clovr's been spamming the same complaints about Ryu with nothing to back it up all over EventHubs. I would agree that the end was predictable as soon as Ortiz made it to finals, though. Daigo has played against Rufus way too many times to keep falling for the same tricks. Though, I honestly think that Gamer Bee would have made a close match, since he's taken sets off Daigo online.

Jarkyttaa said on July 12, 2010 at 12:11 a.m.

@517: You can look that gift horse in the mouth all you want. While a bit disappointing at the time, they really could have done worse with what they had. I enjoyed a weekend of free streaming with ~30 minutes of hiccups.

jwong_fan_club said on July 12, 2010 at 12:17 a.m.

@Mourne

"the only time it will ever really be exciting is when it comes down to what we had last year and Justin holding his own for so long"

JWong has yet to defeat Daigo? When makes it more exciting than Ricky? Same thing really.

JinZo said on July 12, 2010 at 12:25 a.m.

Daigo was a step up from the American players when it came to reading moves. Infiltration was also very good at reading but he has to rely on more shenanigans with Akuma. Even if Justin did stay in winners he would've most likely lost again due to his predictability with Rufus that made him lose to Vangief in the first place. I believe his loss to Vangief shook his match with Gamerbee well enough from the fact that he got put into Losers. Justin wasn't playing straightforward against Gamerbee, that coupled with his knowledge of the match up and you have an eliminated Wong. Everybody should've seen the difference between Ortiz and Daigo. Even after Ortiz took a win from Daigo, he won it back in a matter of minutes as if it were nothing. Daigo was able to outread Ortiz when it comes to fighting patterns. Some good examples are when Daigo used a quick focus attack dash to absorb Rufus's crouching fierce and land one of the beast's combos, immediately after Ryu's wake-up. The biggest highlight of this tournament is Vangief and Gamerbee. Vangief is possibly the best Zangief I've yet seen and his execution is flawless especially on a pad. Although I respect Wong, There's nothing more humiliating than Wong losing to a Zangief padder. The walk-up 720 motion is the greatest sight to see. Gamerbee shocked everyone but to me I felt that it was quite obvious. Adon is hardly played online and his moves are so very awkward compared to the rest of the roster with his mix-up potential, amazing quick-stand speed and high damage potential. His playstyle was definitely 'downloaded' by many players today from the matches, but Gamerbee beating some of the greatest players in the U.S. is inevitable because they have little knowledge of the match-up. Nevertheless, it is still very impressive for an Adon to beat Rufus, or many other high tier characters when Adon himself is considered low-mid tier at best. I consider him low tier because he's a very advanced player, and the 450 scrubs channeling through the Adon forums of SRK can try to be like Gamerbee but most of them will fail because of the difficulty of playing Adon.

The best way to summarize this EVO tournament(SSF4) is simply this.

"If you thought Adon was bad, you'd be Wong."

Sakanade said on July 12, 2010 at 12:32 a.m.

im just happy that a Claw was in the top 32.... GO TATSU.
