it is a shame that only 319 players are going to compete for KOF :(

getting ready for Ultra, BlazBlue and KOF.....Snack ultra potato mode activated!!!

Slaystation said on July 8, 2014 at 3:25 p.m.

I wondered that, too. Arturo? Sanford? Wolfkrone? Not attending or not notable?

MajinTenshinhan said on July 8, 2014 at 3:26 p.m.

As far as I'm aware, neither Sanford nor Wolfkrone are attending, but I might've missed them.

Yung said on July 8, 2014 at 3:27 p.m.

Team Spooky yaaaaaaay

Slaystation said on July 8, 2014 at 3:35 p.m.

Thanks, Nicholas.

where's latif ?

GiBGUN said on July 8, 2014 at 3:37 p.m.

If you take the time to put your dyslexia and presumptuous pomposity aside for a moment and refer to my post, you may realise that this was a genuine question, and not 'nit picking'.

I'm a big fan of the site, and if you look through my previous comments none of these are 'nit picking' either. If anyone is nit picking, its you looking through the comments to try and find a reason to get upset. Sorry to disappoint you!

GiBGUN said on July 8, 2014 at 3:39 p.m.

Oh and he's listed there now! So maybe it was a valid question! Thanks for coming out bro. GGs.

darkallex88 said on July 8, 2014 at 3:41 p.m.

he is there, he is listed above

GiBGUN said on July 8, 2014 at 3:41 p.m.

The story got updated after my post.

PlasmaWaffle said on July 8, 2014 at 3:42 p.m.

LOOOOOOL gost_body just got... bodied

MajinTenshinhan said on July 8, 2014 at 3:43 p.m.

Yeah, sorry for the stealth update, I'm just putting in the guys you are listing in the story :) We can't have everyone listed in the story (thus the "many, many more" listing), but trying to add as many as possible from feedback in the comments. I realise it gets a bit confusing, as in "Is this person left out because EH felt like it, or are they not attending?"

Trying to minimize that feeling as best possible.

GiBGUN said on July 8, 2014 at 3:47 p.m.

Haha no totally understand :) I was just wondering if he was in attendance, or just isn't considered a notable player.

I genuinely have the highest regard for you and everyone else at EH, as well as the content!

RaiKageRyu said on July 8, 2014 at 3:48 p.m.

You guys call this a preview?

Heroscaper said on July 8, 2014 at 3:54 p.m.

For Japan, you forgot:

Misse (AKA Wanchan Taro): Top Makato player
A-Ru: Top Guy player
Taiga: Top Yun player
KOK: Top Evil Ryu player
KSK: Top Abel player
RF: Top Sagat player
EX-Pugera: Top Ibuki player
Kim_1234: Top Bison player
Maeda Taison: Top Balrog (Boxer) player
Shinba: Top Abel player
Sentosu: Top Bison player

For North America:

Hsien Chang

For elsewehere:

I believe that theses players should all be added to the preview list. Especially the players from Japan

Overall, there will be blood !! Can't wait

Kaizy said on July 8, 2014 at 3:55 p.m.

Tournament of Legends and XMANIA USA for BEST PART of EVO!

Slaystation said on July 8, 2014 at 4:09 p.m.

Reddongo probably has a handful of hidden masters to add, too.

HellMuT said on July 8, 2014 at 4:14 p.m.

All those notable Blazblue players.

AkumaShadow said on July 8, 2014 at 4:15 p.m.

dorayaki said on July 8, 2014 at 4:44 p.m.

I'm with ya on that comment. Here's why. The people traveling from across the globe to get here should get a little bit of attention for taking the long trip, especially when they are capable of getting top 8/16. Some of them, particularly Misse, said that that they are coming to try to make a name of themselves. I'm sure he's not the only one that feels like that.

It would've been nice to see a preview page dedicated for these lesser known players so that 1) they are streamed as opposed to joe blow vs john doe and 2) so that people aren't soooo surprised to see a "no-name" foreigner doing so well and call it a fluke when they beat the favorite local guy.

It also brings hype, which is overall the best reason.

Anyways, good post.

hondahands said on July 8, 2014 at 4:45 p.m.

I see the opposite of Beast_Mondo and Remond_gief, I think the Europeans and North Americans are going to surprise a few people. I see upsets everywhere.

I predict if Both PR Rog and Daigo stick to Evil Ryu, they will be eliminated quickly, but if they stick with their mains they will go deep.

My favorites are dieminion, mike ross, daigo and infiltration.

Hoping to see F.Champ bring back dhalsim.

Wolfkrone, Smug , Ricky and Sanford will pull off some upsets.

2 Americans/Euro/Canadians in top 8. A few "hidden masters" in top 16, but more american/euro pros in top 16 than Remondo's hidden master will be present.

Predictions to take it all, Kazunoko, Infiltration, Daigo, Tokido, Dieminion, Latif or PR Rog maybe SNAKE EYES OR SMUG.

gatts12 said on July 8, 2014 at 4:52 p.m.

KSK is not a top Abel player, he is more of a joke in japan.

EX-Pugera, i may surprise you, but for me it's one of the 2 best Ibuki in the world, maybe even better than Sako

TheTTimeLives said on July 8, 2014 at 4:53 p.m.

Dang I guess Krone and Sanford aren't going.

And MBA Pro_Fluke is gonna take out Tokido, maybe. Whys he not in European Notible players?

NGL_Chris said on July 8, 2014 at 5:02 p.m.

Lol, so when they wrote down my teammates name (NGL Marq Teddy) , I'm sure they must have thought of myself and Brentt and said, "ehh nah they're not notable". Cool.

gatts12 said on July 8, 2014 at 5:09 p.m.

Dieminion or Snake eyes to take it all! are you serious? do you play SF.

You're criticising Remondo, but you are way more idiotic, and i'm not talking about making prediction regarding tournament with more than 1000 entrants and where the winner is decided by FT2, completely silly and foolish.

Please stop posting, too much stupidity, is harmful even for eventhubs readers.

Gotomaster said on July 8, 2014 at 5:12 p.m.

Smug is a non factor. He has the potential to win Evo sometime down the road, but you are right that he could pull off an upset. The only Canadian who can make top 8 is Chirithy, and even he is not on that level yet. Fchamp isn't even focusing on Sf4, he's a non factor as well. As for Rog and Daigo getting eliminated early with E.Ryu!? No, they will both do well with or without the character. Sanford and Wolfkrone aren't going to Evo, and Ricky too established to really consider any of his wins an upset.

Gotomaster said on July 8, 2014 at 5:14 p.m.

Those two have a shot at taking it.

thf24 said on July 8, 2014 at 5:29 p.m.

319 entrants for KOF13. THAT'S why it's not getting much coverage and finishes before Sunday. I'm sorry, I have nothing but respect for the game and I don't usually make inflammatory posts like this. It was just obnoxious hearing non-stop what an outrage and an insult it was that it wasn't getting full coverage of pools and a featured slot on Sunday. Sorry, great game but it's just not as popular as it used to be.

erkicman said on July 8, 2014 at 5:30 p.m.


For those looking for BBCP pools: Jyosua will be streaming.


For those looking for Yatagarasu, SCII HD, P4A, Skullgirls, TTT2 (special event), SCV, P4A2: MadCatz will be streaming.


gatts12 said on July 8, 2014 at 5:34 p.m.

A zangief and a guile player! come on, let's be rational for a second.

Gotomaster said on July 8, 2014 at 5:37 p.m.

Well being better than us Eventhubs commenters isn't much merit. Wish you the best of luck, though.

brenttiscool said on July 8, 2014 at 5:37 p.m.

I'm trying to reply with a video of you playing but strangely I can't find any. Weird.

goldengol said on July 8, 2014 at 5:43 p.m.

When is the wnf vs nlbc?

Eden said on July 8, 2014 at 5:46 p.m.

You can add NO, Tsujikawa and Ho-Chan / Stunedge for Blazblue if you put Kiba.

Shinebox said on July 8, 2014 at 5:54 p.m.

I see what you did there ;)

MajinTenshinhan said on July 8, 2014 at 5:57 p.m.

Actually, Marq Teddy was the only one out of you guys I was sure was going to make it.

meistermayo said on July 8, 2014 at 5:58 p.m.

Is there a page somewhere listing all of the team names and fighters?

MajinTenshinhan said on July 8, 2014 at 6:01 p.m.

Sentosu is using Poison now, at least he registered with her for the Topanga Charity Cup, he was in Nekojita's team along with Oshino Pepe who's also at EVO.

hondahands said on July 8, 2014 at 6:14 p.m.

Oh joy, HOW etrotman lives FOR THESE Moments. Back when I was a young man, we used to say "Punks jump up to get beat down".

I didn't know who to respond since my post garnered so many response, SO I'LL TAKE 'EM ALL ON!!!

Let me start by saying.... None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with you... you're locked in here with me!


Gatts12 wrote:"Dieminion or Snake eyes to take it all! are you serious? do you play SF."

Aren't you the same female who actually tells and boasts to people on eventhubs of her education level and profession while putting grammatical and spelling mistakes in the same paragraphs? If you put your education, career and IQ vs. mine, it would be like comparing my reproductive organ size to yours. It would be like the odds of Remondo's "hidden master" winning EVO, 11 to 1. Yeah. Who's next?

I leave myself plenty o' room for my spelling mistakes cuz I ain't trying to be Einstein, though I be way smartah than yo' dumb azz. I got nothing to prove career or profession.. you're insecurity is ridiculous for a man that writes only a lil' bettah than Remondo. dumbazz.

Listen woman, let me explain to you what professionals in Vegas and/or prediction markets (google it) do when they make odds for Boxing Events, Elections and championships on any type of competition... You cover the most likely to win first, but put in wild card or low ends to cover upsets in case your "horse" fail. You balance whether what you feel more confident with , the high% win that pays small or the upset that pays more. You put 6:4 to cover high% vs low%.

Given you are unaware that EVO is based on short sets (at least you appear that ignorant of that simple fact), it allows even for an underdog to advance for, or even TAKE IT ALL. Now the odds for the underdog to do that are extremely small, however if you watch the NFL, the lowest seed has won the superbowl twice in the past 5 years.

If you remember the "favorites" or even the top 8 for the last evos from 2009, you would have never picked the top 8. The only time the favorite actually won was daigo. Fuudo, Xian and Infiltration were not expected to win the years they won.

Gatts wrote: "You're criticising Remondo, but you are way more idiotic, and i'm not talking about making prediction regarding tournament with more than 1000 entrants and where the winner is decided by FT2, completely silly and foolish."

You are showing your ignorance. As I type this post, the red is showing all your errors as I copy paste your text. wow, you got your degree from an online school. A FT2 is EXACTLY why an underdog can win. It's exactly why an American, or possibly even remondos "hidden masters" have a chance of beating daigo, tokido or any Japanese God. The less rounds the higher chance for a favorite to lose. Isn't this the excuse Beast_gief and Remondo use since the Japanese have been losing the tournaments the last few years.. that FT2 is why?

JonTheVillager said on July 8, 2014 at 6:25 p.m.

Oh snap. I really didn't know Ryan hart is from Europe. What country?

hondahands said on July 8, 2014 at 6:36 p.m.


This is the same fool that bet the whole Eventhubs on his knowledge of fighting games, lost on a poor asinine wager, then refused to pay.. The definition of biotch.

"are you trolling?"

My name is etrotman.

"When has an American won EVO? .... NEVER"

According to this jackazz logic, because a certain country/person has never won he EVO, it/he never will, even when the amount of entrants for America is near 10 to 1. You could never be a statistics teacher or premier gambler in Vegas. America has the most Named pros and most entrants, I'll give them a shot to take it all despite not having the absolute strongest players.

"That's right. Your "American Gods" are 0-4. And now magically Dieminion/Rog/Latif/Snake Eyes/ or Smug (LMFAO!) have a chance to win it?"

I don't know who your "American" Gods are. I only worship one God by the way, the way, the life and the truth. The american Gods in my view are Dieminion, Rog and Wong. The BEST being Dieminion in my opinion. I am just not sure how bad the guile nerfs will hinder him.

The Ft2 thing is the same excuse you use when Japanese LOSE. You say Dieminion/Rog/Latif/Wong can only win the tournament because it was a ft2. NOW you are saying that this same excuse doesn't count because it's EVO and we are applying it in the reverse direction towards EVO. Sit your short bus azz down.

"Americans can't win tournaments with only a handful of Japanese players in it.... this is the most stacked EVO ever."

One thing to be clear, I gave a list of players to win it all. I intentionally included Americans, Japanese and Koreans. YOU CHOSE to ignore the Japanese picks (note the Japanese picks are 2 of the 4 absolute favorites to win) and focus on Americans and European picks, simply because it's easy (at least in your limited intelligence it appears that way). Simple thought process for a simpleton.

"And rofl at Daigo being eliminated if he uses E Ryu... he's only the top arcade player in Japan with the character."

Watch and See, he looks pretty rusty to me.

"Once again, America will not win and the fanboys will make excuses."

I did not predict America to win, again I predicted SEVERAL countries to POSSIBLY win. Nuance escapes you.

I don't make absolutes on bets like you (and then lose and refuse to pay). I make wide ranging bets to cover myself so when after this is done, I can point to my STRONG picks AND my WEAK picks. I don't foolishly throw out "America WILL win". Learn from me, then you won't owe 100s of dollars to people on eventhubs.

If you read my post fully, you will see the intent was to make a wide range of picks , intentionally full of underdogs that are dangerous in addition to obvious picks of Daigo (The best player in the world) and Kazunoko (A "God" playing the God tier characters").

I even mention the words "upset" SEVERAL times. Your selected reading shows the unlimited potential and current level of your jackassery.

Eden said on July 8, 2014 at 6:40 p.m.

They are all from Japan, (NO stands for N-Otoko, I believe he's seeded 1st).

gatts12 said on July 8, 2014 at 6:42 p.m.

Spelling mistakes, of course, english is my third language, so let's try in french, my 2nd language.

Tu passes ton temps à raconter de la grosse merde, mais mon pauvre tu ne réussiras à impressionner personne surtout sur un forum traitant de VSF.

Premièrement tu me traites de femme, dans une volonté d'essayer de me rabaisser, pourquoi? pour toi une femme a moins de valeur qu'un homme, bizarre comme raisonnement primitif venant de la part de quelqu’un qui se prétend civilisé, pire tu te montres insultant à un point dépassant l’exécrable, ceci montre que part mon commentaire je t'es frustré, ce qui n'est pas pour me déplaire, ce fut le but recherché .

Pour le reste je ne vais pas m’attarder sur ton cas, ton niveau de stupidité est tel qu'on est au point de non retour.

Un frustré de la vie, un cancre qui essaye de se rassurer en essayant de poster sur un forum ou l'intellect est au plus bas niveau, voici pour ton profil, tu ne trompes personne.

Well have a good read, for someone pretending to be better than me intellectually, i assume you can speak more than one language.

Dbarcelona said on July 8, 2014 at 6:47 p.m.

" To speed things up, when you registered for Evo we emailed you a ticket. Go find it right now and print it out. Seriously…I’ll wait. The ticket was sent with the subject line  “Evo Ticket” and it looks like this. If you can’t find it, check your spam folder."

man what the flying sagats and here I was gonna take a png of the qr code in my tablet, can someone from ehubs send a tweet to wizard to see if we need a print out this It was supposed to simplify things not go back to the stone age.

Go eat a celery stick :p. Its evo weekend baby, anything goes.

hondahands said on July 8, 2014 at 6:50 p.m.

Hey lady, English is my 16th language biotch. And there is little doubt I am your intellectual superior, education superior, physical superior and genital superior . I cover myself by intentionally using slang and intentionally poor english, you declare your intellectual superiority, then have spelling and grammatical mistakes more than Remondo and Foxington.

Here's how Google translated your BS. it actually did better french than you did! You had so much profanity in it I had to remove it.

"You spend your time to tell the big s--t, but my poor you will succeed to impress anyone especially on a forum dealing with VSF.

First you treat me as a woman, a willingness to try to belittle me, why? for you a woman is worth less than a man, strange as primitive reasoning coming from someone who claims to civilized worse you're insulting watches at a point beyond the execrable, this shows that I share my comment you're frustrated, which does not displease me, that was the goal.

For the rest I will not dwell on your case, your level of stupidity is such that is the point of no return.

A frustrated life, a dunce who tries to reassure trying to post on a forum or the intellect is at the lowest level, here for your profile, you're not fooling anyone."

Women are equal to men in every way but physical. I don't treat you as a woman, there's a difference, I am saying you ARE a woman. You can't fool me, we can all hide our gender on these forums, but your femininity rings out SOO loudly. Maybe Remondo can take you on a date, I believe he is male... I think....

gatts12 said on July 8, 2014 at 6:57 p.m.

Tu sais je peux te renvoyer exactement les mêmes propos, mais dans ton cas c'est plus un frustré qui n'en peut plus de se faire défoncer le cul, qui pour se réconforter a besoin d’afficher ses exploits sexuels, assez triste sachant que tu es probablement un puceau boutonneux.

Mais crois moi je compatis, je sais qu'il est très difficile d'exister quand on a pas un physique avantageux, persévère mon ami tu finiras par trouver le boudin qui voudra de toi pour enfin tromper ton biscuit.

Nemo..... i was betting that he would not get out of pools.. lol well.. guess he knew :(

SAMURAI said on July 8, 2014 at 7:14 p.m.

Let's try to be serious. Smug is a good Dudley player, but he can't even win tournaments where there are no Japanese players attending. He's not going to win EVO.

hondahands said on July 8, 2014 at 7:14 p.m.

Such profanity. Sexual exploits? I never told you I had any. I talked of my larger brain and larger genitals by quite a large margin.

You are getting away from the fact that I chose around a half a dozen players to win EVO using a large spread of players (the two absolute favorites included) and you sheepishly/foolishly/DumbAssedly/ButtHolishly chose that to try and attack any pick that was not a Japanese God. You fool, you can't build straw men with me, try that with simpler minds like Beast_Girl or Remondo. But no, you're the type of girl that won't offend her boyfriends.

Your knowledge of statistics is smaller than your ... LOL.

Read posts better madam, and you'll have less of a chance of creating straw men.

thec0re3 said on July 8, 2014 at 7:17 p.m.

:/..Is it really that hard to believe. It was pretty short notice not evening a month before EVO. I mean the money is great but there are only 8 people who are guaranteed any $ and I can only guesstimate out of the 508 only about 32 players have an honest shot at getting that money so I feel like 508 people is a very good number especially after the short notice of the prize $.

I'd even go further as to say that before the big hub bub about the prize $ this was most likely going to be BB's final appearance. Off of that alone people should have come out to support.

By the way, there is a huge typhoon coming to Japan. I don't know but I wouldn't be surprised if some of these Japanese players wouldn't be able to fly to Vegas this week. Unless they are already in the USA.

This hondahands kid is something else. The sh*t he says is so painfully awkward. I'm not sure if the comedic value from reading his posts is worth the cringes that are literally so harsh that they cause physical pain.

American winning EVO cause of that Typhoon.

this EVO will be the most unpredictable in recent yers,too many good players and ultra is still a very recent game...nevertheless,i bet in daigo,infiltration and sako to be in top 8,and dont be surprised if smug or jayce are top 8 either,im convicted that at least one of them will have a great performance,lets wait and see what happens.And i really want to see that NLBC vs WNF,should be very exciting!

Continued from #87:

Xian: Defending Champ, fearsome competitor: Weakness: Gen Nerfed Heavily

PR ROg: He's ALWAYS in contention in EVO. Weakness, does not always do well against Japanese, his Evil Ryu like Daigo's is not to the same proficiency as his main character.

Snake Eyes: This is a wild card pick, arguably one of the best giefs in the world, if he gets lucky in match ups, you never know what could happen. Weakness: Character is one dimensional, lack of international play.

SMUG: This is the player that no one wants to play in a ft2.. Arguably, has the best execution in the world. Can kill anyone INSTANTLY. Weakness: the greenest player, little experience, has no strategy, only tactics and setups.

Mike ROss: Lives and dies by reads, plays recklessly which means he can kill anyone, and has done this so many times in the past. Does big combos, EXTREMLY dangerous, has Gone to japan's god's garden and wiped out entire sets of Japanese hidden masters, only lost because of an army of sagats. Weakness, never won a tournament, when he makes bad reads, he loses badly. Always loses to American Gods, does not do much better with Japanese Gods. His character is now bottom 5.

Japanese Hidden Master: There are dozens of these, that increases the possibility they can win. They get to play regularly with Japan's best, that can only help. Weakness: No tournament experience, given the first set of hidden master's showing, this is an extreme weakness.

honestly latif has a very litle chance of winning evo or even to be in the top8,i mean he hasnt been playing "seriously" for months ,he himself admits that nowadays he doesnt play sf regularly,i think he must be a litlle rusty.jayce would be a better choice for top 8 imo,everytime i see him playing he looks more and more impressive,his execution with viper is simply amazing.i think that today jayce's viper is better than latif's one.

LoL ;)

hondahands said on July 8, 2014 at 8:26 p.m.

You may be right, maybe Jayce is the new Smug, a new "hidden master". I put latif because of the reasons mentioned, plus he already knows what its like to be at the highest levels of competitions. But your point is valid, I made the same point saying that he has not played a lot of tournaments lately, that's his biggest weakness.

MRN_SirFoxington said on July 8, 2014 at 8:37 p.m.

Nothing changed after all....

Still just a barking dog tied on a leash and desperately looking for attention he lacks in reality by putting people down.....ON THE INTERNET.

His Ego "Etrotman" got banned and is mentally crippled ever since he choosed to call himself "Hondahands" i guess!

A broken man with a F*cked Ego,drowning in sorrow and insecurity, thats how you appear to me.

Don't dare to reply when he stated there is no video of you playing, and don't dare to reply when people are asking whether you paid the $100 yet. Such keyboard warrior.
