EXHIBITIONS

The King (KOF XIII)
A 5v5 where each team member is locked to only one character from the KOFXIII roster. No duplicates allowed on a team.

The goal is to win five FT3 matches, but the catch is that each game within the FT3 is a fresh 1v1. This is similar to regular 3v3 KOFXIII, but instead of one player controlling the entire team, the entire team is controlled by three individual team members.

Mortal Kombat: Survival
Each team has 5 players. Each player selects 4 different characters from the roster to play. Goal: Eliminate the other teamís characters. The crowd selects which 2 players will play each Best 2/3 match. The players who are playing will blind pick from their selected roster of characters to start the Best 2/3 match.

Vampire Savior 8-vs-8 Team Exhibition
The full roster will be covered as the best representation for each character will battle each other! The cast will be split right down the tier list. Each team will have (2)S tiers, (2)A tiers etc.


PLAYERS

Will expand as more information becomes available. You can check out the PowerUp pre-registration listing for a partial list of players.

I assume Current Code is run on arcade, right? There hasn't been a home port yet has there?

Pretty dumb of them to run Skullgirls on 360. Load times are way worse than the PSN version.

I'm just going by the pre-registered list. There's also on-site registration, so that will add quite a bit to the numbers. I haven't really been looking for info on player yet, so the current list is lacking.

Scheduled for 11PM EDT, about 2.5 hours from now, but since the first exhibition was scheduled for 7PM and the stream isn't up yet, who knows when it will be.

Here's a heads-up on something I totally didn't know. Seeding points for EVO 2012 are for Top 12, not Top 16 as originally announced. I just learned about this literally minutes ago.

Holy shit EC (or the mid-west...) needs more reliable ISPs, I really hope we don't have another Curly Moustache on our hands here.

Osirun was concerned that they'd be unable to stream anything at all since the venue's internet was so shitty. Supposedly they had that worked out at the last minute but I wouldn't be surprised if they just ended up recording a lot of footage offline and releasing that later instead of streaming all of it.

Ohio will be fine. We're not in the danger zone. There will be some storms, but likely nothing terrible like what Oklahoma and Kansas are supposed to get.

Well, if they tested it and it's still shit, what are they supposed to do about it if that's what you have to work with?

Well, I would figure you would test this out before you even rent out of the place...

Meh, what do I know. It's their lost viewers, not mine.

make sure you get internet that can capacitate the event prior to running it? I don't see how it's harder than that.

High speed internet is probably the least of their concerns. They plan a tourney based on location, rent, capacity rather than if stream monsters can watch at high quality.

I fully understand the event comes first, it's just if they say an event's going to be steamed they should commit to that and figure out if that's actually going to happen prior to the night.
