Awesome - came in here to post the Skullgirls prize stick, and it was already in the OP!

Also, GDLK Apparel will be selling this exclusive, limited edition shirt at Toryuken and Montreal Annual Tournament.

2/3. Every game is the same as the standard Evo rules.

Also shout outs to Reverge Labs for that tee and stick.

I can't believe that they're putting such a huge emphasis on SFxT. The game is barely alive especially after the recent update.

I guess on that note, if anyone sees the chun stick with these buttons/balltop then I guess that's me

According to their site, SFxTK had less entrants than they anticipated so they moved part of the pot bonus to SSFIV.

If that was the case then I assume the decision to give SFxT a bigger pot bonus and probably more air time before was because it was planned months in advance before the shit storm that came after SFxT came out. Toryuken wasn't the first event to make changes to the schedule after SFxT didn't become the new big hit that people thought it would be.

Yeah but people are pouring in now.

Where y'all at? I'm a slightly anorexic looking brown kid with a blue shirt with a skull on it. Hair gelled slightly. Currently watching UMvC3 casuals to regain confidence from participating in them.

Wong just arrived.

Do what I did at EVO last year. When you see well known players doing casuals/MM, just stand behind them watching there matches like a giggly school girl while never having the courage to participate yourself.
