Haven't done so yet, but I was thinking about doing a recap of last year's tournament. Here were some of the highlights I thought of.

Daigo loses to Jago, Marn
SKISONIC CALLED DAIGO A BITCH
Crouching Fierce into Super (and US vs. World overall)
Yellow button drama
Arturo's choke against Gamerbee
Justin's Makoto vs. Gamerbee
Team Canada in the team tourney

Right now I'm just reading through the old thread. Hilarious stuff.

Shame I'll be missing some of the special events (E.coast vs W.coast/US vs World), but most of the tournament is in a pretty good hours considering.

Haven't followed the scene as much since EVO, so it will be interesting to see how players and the games themselves evolved.

OMG this is like a dream event right here. MAHVEL out in full force, Yipes as MC, beast mode ass roster, Vampire Saviour side tournament, and a motherfucking 1 hour long Skullgirls exhibition with the Ms Fortune build?

It's like fucking fighting game Christmas! :lol

US Airways better not fuck it up for me though, I wanna see PH Rog tear some more ass up with his ridiculous Dante.

They seem to be doing it to Justin and crew :/

Is it safe that they are gonna stream dark stalkers or is it possible it will be cut (from the stream) because of pools or something? ;-/ I'm scared.

"Starring IFC Yipes as MC!"

If this happens the same way Evo had it Yipes will only be heard in the background and the commentators will just rephrase/repeat what he says.

Thank God, I made it back from vacation so I can watch this. Last year was amazing, and it looks to be even better this year with so much more heavy hitters attending.

And in case you guys didn't know, Civil War: Good vs. Evil is 5 Phoenix players vs 5 non-Phoenix players. Probably a farewell for the bird that everyone hates.

Man, why does Gamerbee never come here anymore.
Because there are better international players out there? I mean, who would you rather see, Gamerbee or Uryo?

The shit? Why does he need to choose? It's not like one can't come if the other does.
It's not Gamerbee choosing, it's the touney organisers who have to choose who to pay for. They probably paid thousands of dollars for each international player, how many do you think they can bring over? Also Gamerbee has a life, so it could be possible that they wanted to bring him over but he can't come over.

All the killers are in a separate pool. I think we'll see another repeat of the EVO/Devastation Top 8.

Combofiend will win this one though.
