MooseKing better commentate. He's the only foreign commentator worth a damn I've heard.

SS 2011 was the best stream side from EVO. Top quality stream, commentating, show out, matches, and hype.

Stoked and a half for this.

I'm hoping Michael Tan can be this years Poongko. He's got the skills, but nobody has ever seen him play outside of a few matches on Japanese team tournaments. I think he has a really good chance to make this his break through performance like SS2K11 did for Poongko last year. And it could be a gateway to coming to EVO for someone like him, unlike some of the other internationals who are sponsored already.

I don't know man Michael Tan is pretty known. In fact I think Michael Tan is the favorite to win.

I am actually more hyped for AE than Marvel at this event although Marvel after pools into top 16 is going to be insane too. The lineup has even topped last year's line up (although it's not going to have the Mago vs Ross runback).

I remember catching a few bits and pieces of SS 2k11. I can't believe it's been a year already. Of course, as with last year, the times are so terrible for me that I'll barely catch any of the stream. I hope is a good tournament though.

Should be a good tournament hopefully they learn from the "big" commentry mistakes of last year.

But I bet they don't. Hopefully they keep jeavy weapons away and don't spend the whole time trying to shove annoying terms and catch-phrases down everybodies throat. Was really embarassing given the quality of everything else.
