I'm finally going to EVO for the first time this year!

Been a stream monster since forever, so hype to actually get to be a part of it!

Part of me is bummed Melee won't be on Sunday, but oh well. Tekken will bring the hype on the main stage!

I'm running the EVO gauntlet too, because I'm going to be a bracket judge for Tekken 7 on Friday and Smash 4 & SFV on Saturday.

Entering SFV, GG:Xrd, T7, S4, Melee, and the Puyo Puyo Tetris and Project M side brackets. I might enter DBFZ if I have time.

I'm probably going to drop SFV and Xrd though, as I haven't practiced them enough lately. T7, Melee, PM, and PPT I want to not go 0-2 in. S4 I don't care really lol.

Also helping my friends shoot documentary footage for their PM doc:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbltHqHwOiY

We leave from Cali tomorrow, and we plan to hit up shows in the evenings too.

Plans for the weekend:

- Not get bodied
- Find a cosplay waifu
- Hit up the red bull parties
- Get as many signatures for my stick & Gamecube controller case as possible
- Endless Mimosas before grand finals day

I am so hype. H Y P E !

From the EVO site:


Think you can place in the money? That’s the spirit. Evo awards cash prizes to the top eight places at a rate proportional to the number of attendees. Ten dollars from the registration fee of each participant will go into a tournament prize pool, which will be awarded to the top finishers at a 60/20/10/4/2/2/1/1 split. For example, if 300 people enter a tournament, the total prize pool for that tournament will be $3000 ($300 x 10), paying out $1800 to first place (60% of $3000), $600 to second place (20% of $3000), and $300 to third place (10% of $3000), and so on.

SFV First place is getting 45 THOUSAND BISON DOLLARS. Hell 8th place gets 700 Bucks.

Did EVO ever send you the schedule of your pool and what time top 128 or top 64 of each game would be if you qualified?

Yes, check your Smash.GG page (where you had to register to compete) and all the info should be there.

Here's what mine looks like (Green means show up, orange means tentative):

Most of the games get the majority of their pot from the developer/publisher. Melee and Smash 4 don't get any from NIntendo (and I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing since the same group of people would always get the money anyways)

More incentive to travel and compete is always healthy for a scene. The people at the top tend to deserve it.

I only care about Tekken and SF. High level Tekken has been really fun to watch over the past few weeks. It reminds me a little bit of VF with all the focus on backdashing. I'm rooting for Tanukana to put in a good showing. JDCR is always awesome.

Could've gone this year except the plan was to move offices that weekend. Turns out we're not moving at all and I missed out on a $175 roundtrip flight to Vegas.

At least I can watch from the comfort of my bed. Can't wait to see BB, GG, and Tekken. Hopefully SFV will be good this year but I'm not holding my breath.

Every game except T7 has less entrants this year, probably because registration fees are more expensive now.

There are other reasons individual to each game (more so the Top 3), but that seems to be the common cause across all of the impacted games (which are, as you said, every game except Tekken 7).

Of course this is Evo and there are blowups EVERY YEAR, there are unknown players who come out of nowhere and make a name for themselves...That's why i LOVE EVO.

That joker match made my respect for him skyrocket. Everyone knows he likes the character but no one expected him to pull him out at the very end of a tournament haha. And to 3-0 someone with him!!! Apparently Sonic has been playing a ton of Red Hood so we'll see...

Noobe impressed me with his Cheetah play so I hope to see him get far.

Until now they've had the biggest Tekken tournament series in the world with the MASTERCUP 5on5 tournaments. They had 187 teams with 935 players last year. They've been growing every year too so we'll have to see if they beat Evo's numbers this year.

I'm a huge Smash fan and while I don't really play SFV much the Anime fighters are fun to watch and Tekken has stolen my heart so I'm stoked.

For anyone going to EVO, it seems Nintendo has a booth for promoting Pokkén Tournament DX.

WHAT:
EVO is one of the world’s largest events for fighting game fans and professional competitors all over the world. Over three days in Las Vegas, EVO hosts a variety of tournaments and exhibitions for the community to showcase the love and universal appeal of competitive video games.

This year, Nintendo is attending the event with a booth space featuring playable kiosks for the Pokkén Tournament DX fighting game, which stars popular Pokémon characters and launches for the Nintendo Switch console on Sept. 22. During EVO, Nintendo will be playfully “recruiting” people to join the virtual Pokkén Tournament DX Academy, which provides a direct line of communication between Nintendo and the Pokkén Tournament DX players.

By signing up for the Academy, members will receive exclusive tips and tricks directly from Nintendo and the game’s development team, as well as invitations to a special Nintendo event at PAX West in Seattle.

EVO will feature visually engaging posters promoting the Academy, as well as a sign-up sheet at Nintendo’s booth. Fans and pro players who sign up will be entered into an on-site drawing for the chance to win a Nintendo Switch system and the Pokkén Tournament DX game when it launches on Sept. 22.

WHO:
Pro fighting game players, Nintendo and fighting game fans

WHEN:
July 14-15
10 a.m.-8 p.m. PT

WHERE:
EVO
Mandalay Bay – South Convention Center – Nintendo Booth (No. 121)
3950 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89119

VISUALS:

Fighting arenas filled with hundreds of fans rooting for their favorite professional fighting game competitors.
Nintendo’s booth filled with Pokémon-inspired visuals and playable Nintendo Switch systems with Pokkén Tournament DX.
Colorful posters around EVO promoting the Pokkén Tournament DX Academy.
A Nintendo fan or professional fighting game player winning a Nintendo Switch system.

It's so hard to tell with Smash 4. So many secret killers everywhere. Might run into a dude from across the country that's put in work with a character you forgot existed.
