This was Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's last year as a main game for EVO, the largest fighting game tournament in the world.

A number of great competitors converged on Las Vegas, Nevada, to participate in UMvC3's last big showing at this particular event.

Players such as EG|NYChrisG, SPY|RyanLV, Paradigm, KPB|Prodigy and GB|NotEnoughDamage all managed to attain top 8 spots, over such players as SPY|Filipino Champ, FOX|Justin Wong, UA|TerryBogard, PG|RayRay, AW|Nemo and ApologyMan.

With over 650 entrants, it was a complete bloodbath on the way to the end of the bracket at EVO 2017, with some of the game's most famous names getting knocked out in the earlier rounds.

We start off with a set between ChrisG and RyanLV, as you can see both players were in a mad scramble, yet still making very intelligent reads despite the frenetic circumstances.

These two competitors had some great games today, as the second highlight shows how close some of their matches were. Chris and Ryan weren't afraid to lame it out though, as you can see in the third clip.

The next set of highlights showcases ChrisG's highly refined meter stealing skills to prevent dark Phoenix. Also, there's another segment where Phoenix is getting chipped out by Arthur, and the game's camera even has a tough time keeping up with the action. Closing out these sequences, it just wouldn't be UMvC3 without a nasty Happy Birthday.

Finally, we have the tournament winning clip, so you can see how things shook out.
