♡ To the founders of SRK and the main trio behind the Evolution fighting game series, Tom and Tony Cannon and Mr.Wizard aka Joey Cuellar.

♡ To the people who were part of the Road to EVO series, having and running majors leading up to this point. This includes Terry Kineda, Adam "Keits" Heart, Alex *Top player* Jebailey, Big E, Alex Valle
as well as numerous people running International Road to EVO events. And of course to all the people who contribute to the SRK site itself, especially our very own USD.

♡ To all the sponsors supporting this niche but ever growing community, namely Mad Catz and their undying dedication to the community as well as Focus Attack, Arcade shock, Avermedia,
Broken Tier and whatever sponsors that has helped in their own way.

♡ To all the players and people by attending these various tournaments and events to help expand the community further.

♡ To all the stream monsters who helped maximized CPM for those washed up Dhalsim players and various other streams. :p

♡ To Fighting GAF for talking more about theory fighting than actually playing the games and helping to make the weekly GAF threads one of the most active on GAF. A special mention to those who
contributed to the thread. You all know who you are.

It doesn't exist yet. The link is a placeholder. I was told it will exist.

Pretty much the only thing left to add is sales, promotions and anything in the misc section. If anybody wants me to add anything. Like if they are going to have an orgy like GB did last year, PM me.

You know the right choice to make.

Hint: Watch Evo. Pacific Rim will still be around on Monday!
Giant robots and aliens or hearing SOUL FIST repeatedly for 7 hours hmmm which choice? (I'm kidding, midnight showing sooooooon)
