There were a couple others I saw but never introduced myself (i.e. Kourin Chan) * I was the one wearing the Corona cap.

I’m still in vegas for about 18 more hours. I’m about to head to the gun store and try out an AK-47!

It was really fun everyone!

guru did i meet you? i dont really recall :looney:
shoutouts to GD crew in general, everyone i met was pretty chill with few exceptions. especial shoutouts to fishjie for being a real awesome guy, rotendo for running my pool well and hooking up with me later to play some games, ronin for being his usual funny/dick self, dataika for being surprisingly hype, airthrow and pablo for actually playing fighting games and doing it well, dios for raping people in marvel on pad

PG wins the award for person least resembling my expectations, Valaris the OPPOSITE, JD and his bro for actually living in Juneau, AK, TS for being surprisingly quiet and laid back, The Grey Area for being extremely mature and intelligent (really offset the rest of us quite well, excepting maybe the commie), Lobelia Prime for having fantastic voice impressions, and of course RoTenDo wins the award for most oorah

grog wins the award for somehow pocketing my fight money :mad: and y2j wins the award for me constantly forgetting your name

Oh shit Weeks…I saw you.
I should’ve said hello.

I wanna shout out to all the new faces I met…

And to everyone that was reppin’ with their TE sticks :smiley:

Also wanna give mad love to all the regulars and especially EVO staff for making this scene the best scene out there.

See you guys next year.

why didn’t you!? and how did you know it was me! :looney:

I know you said that you had red hair…and I saw you talking to Val.
I was the one holding the seats during the finals.

wtf man give me a holla i don’t bite :annoy:

Shouts to everyone who enjoyed all our hard work this weekend, and of course to all the TvC guys.

EVO Staff: Thanks for everything. It was a fantastic event far exceeding expectations.

Sabre: You sir were my personal highlight. Your match vs Valle was the best 2 minutes of the entire tournament IMO and you deserve all the praise in the world.

Sanford: Your performance in Marvel and SFIV were fantastic. So many people love to hate on you and I’m sure your performance will shut them up (at least for a little while).

Dagger G: We didn’t meet at all. I just wanted to say you inspired me to pick up Guile as a serious character in SFIV. Your performance in the 5 on 5 was great.

Jeff Tanaka: Thanks for letting me sub into your 3S team. How the hell did a Smash player like yourself and a completely washed up 3S player like myself come 5th? Thanks for saving my ass more than I saved your ass during the tourney. I need to pick up 3S again.

Jinrai: Thanks for consistently having a place to chill and play casuals. I’m sorry we didn’t get a chance to re-match after the Akuma whooping. You looked like you wanted another crack at me.

Toshin: Great to finally meet you bud. Next time we’ll tear up the poker table together.

Valaris: It was great finally meeting you (so random crossing paths at the convenience store). I wish we could have hung out more.

Paul Lee: It’s been too long my friend. How does someone get his chips in so good and get punked so often. Fuck poker, what a shit game. I hope our paths cross again down the line. Always a pleasure.

Watson: Great to see you after so long. How can I get one of those YJDK shirts?

TFGM: Thanks for bringing such a strong force to EVO. I hope whatever bad blood we’ve had in the past is now water under the bridge. Your contribution to the gaming community as a whole is far greater than people realize.

Justin: Thank you for putting on one of the greatest shows ever against Daigo. Hopefully I’ll see you in a few weeks at T10.

Arturo: Good shit holding it down against Daigo. Fuck the haters.

DS: Great seeing you brother. You’re a lucky SOB (already said why in #gtasf)

VDO: How the hell did we only see each other for 2 minutes this whole weekend? I’m so disgusted AGAIN we don’t play each other. There are forces working against us.

Deus: BIIIIIIIL! You’re the best. Anyone who beat you cheated. That’s all I’ve got to say.

Team Hate: Great seeing you all again. Smoothcat was right, IV fucks with people’s 3S game.

Baltimore Crew: I’m sorry I couldn’t run the CvS2 side tournament. After busting out of SFIV pools, I wanted no part of EVO on Saturday and skipped out on the day. I hope you all make it up for SBIV.

Norman911: Great meeting the best in the prairies. You need to make your way to Toronto and level up. Tell Dave it was great meeting and hanging with him too. He was too jokes.

Winnipeg Crew/ChipDamage.com: Always a pleasure seeing my man Jim Kim and Steffan. Great meeting Tyler and Shane as well. Never forget the 3am zombie.

Jetphi: Great seeing you again. Next time we need to actually hang instead of hi and bye.

Preppy: Always a pleasure. I can’t thank you enough for loaning me that adapter last second. I can’t believe someone stole my TAC adapter. 1 fucking minute and it’s gone. In any case, I hope to see you again at SBIV.

Fugee: Speaking of SBIV, it was cool chilling with you waiting for my 1/3 game to open up. It’s a shame you could sit down and slum it with a low baller like myself. It’d have been good times.

Poker victims: There were A LOT of SRK players at the 1/3NL tables. Sadly a lot of you paid for my trip (brag). I think only that cali Zangief player in the salmon shirt (the name is japanese, I can’t remember it though) kept me contained. BTW if you think I bluffed you at any point, I probably did.

GTASF: I see you guys all the time. Here and there we all made this trip fun for Toronto and surround area players. Thanks for coming out and repping the GTASF and Canada.

I’m sure I’m forgetting so many more. Please forgive me in that regard. Great meeting lots of new people and putting faces to names after so long. It was a great time and I hope to see you around the tournament circuit in the future.

Shout-outs to everyone I met and sorry if I don’t drop your name here, I probably forgot. I’ll try to remember everything.
Also, before I forget, I think the Rio was probably our finest venue for EVO yet. It’d be great to have it there again. The Rio blows the Tropicana out of the water, hands down. The one thing I think was lacking was sufficient chairs. But it was hard to tell just how many people would be in there by the end of the night.

-Spence: Great to see you again, but too bad Bill couldn’t make it out this year.

-laugh: Thanks for stomping my ass with Dictator and helping out my friends (and me!) with your inpin converters and just being a cool guy overall.

-DGV: We finally have footage of you in serious tournament play! Hopefully Vintage will also participate next time :tup:

-Shirts: It must’ve been disappointing defeating me so easily and I could make an excuse about how there’s no Dhalsims on your level in my local scene, but that’s worthless. I’ll take more rounds off you next time.

-Viscant: You’ve got a solid Claw, good shit.

-orochizoolander: In real life, you’re a lot like you are online. Strongly opinionated and you have a big mouth. But you’re even shorter than I am and still manage to be an outgoing, talkative, and friendly guy.

-Hugo101: It was cool hanging out with you and DGV on Friday trying to get some kind of ST setup going on. Looks like you did great this year, keep it up!

-damdai: It was amazing to finally see you play in-person and you did not disappoint. I was telling people how you were straightup playing World Warrior this weekend, fighting against the old school bosses (Valle, Wolfe, Choi) in the last legs of the tournament. You, Thelo, and afrolegends all came out from online fame and totally rocked it, showing that new challengers can hang. Way to go. Lastly, you OCV’d my team in the ST 3v3. Your mind game is too strong.

-zaspacer: Definitely nice meeting you and keep up the great work on your site. I’ll look into acquiring a Yoga Book Hyper.

-fatboy: Good to see you again, you talk some serious theory fighter.

-Wes Truelson: You’re a very cool guy and tall as fuck. Thanks for sharing your old school knowledge and letting everyone play in your room. Hope your ankle gets better soon.

-CharcoalBuddy: Good to see you still play a solid shoto. Thanks for beating the crap out of me.

-BruceLB: As I said before, it’s thanks to you that I know like 90% of what I know about Dee Jay. You did great this year, good shit on rocking that Dee Jay! Thanks for all the advice. You’re also shorter than I expected, but I don’t know why I expected someone tall in the first place. Maybe because you have Yamazaki and Claw in your avatar :rofl:

-Toodles: Nice playing a little SFIV with you and the others when there were no other casuals going on Thursday. You’ve made some wonderful contributions to the community and I commend you for that. Please keep up the excellent work.

-Phi: I already gave you my thanks, but I also wanted to thank you for letting us play casuals in our pool while we waiting on the DQ announcement. You’re a super cool cat for that.

-John Rambo: Speaking of pool casuals! The only other man I know that rocks the Start-colored Sim. Cool meeting you, man. Keep on holding it down at Chinatown Fair.

-nohoho: Everyone loves your blog and dedication to ST. I’m glad you made an appearance this year even if some side events didn’t go as planned.

-Adam Deats: Nice meeting you and chatting it up while we waited an eternity for our games to come up in our SFIV pool.

-BrentoBox: It was cool running into you in the elevator on the last day… I guess? :rofl:

-Geese Pants: We didn’t formally meet, but I just wanted to say good shit on the unbeatable chair defense.

-omni: It’s true whoever said it, “You don’t look a day over 12”.

-Seattle ST scene: Great meeting you guys individually, I hope you keep your local scene strong and continue to grow.

-Grog, RickDawg, Ken, Shin Rotendo, Dogface, CigarBob, and SaBrE: Thank you for such a memorable final night of EVO. floe vs wiz and the run-in with Graham Wolfe was all I needed. I hope you guys had as good a time as I did.
PS: “Fuck you, I’m hype.”

Looks like that’s it. Hope to see you all next year!

also a big FUCK YOU to my own simian ass for accidentally overwriting a ton of pictures and videos i took at evo, including one of Wong and TFGM being pimp. god dammit.

Evo was fucking awesome. Though I would have liked to meet more peeps from SRK, the people I did meet were really chill. Especially some of the people from NorCal. I’ll def be back next year.
