I should make explicit that what follows isn’t official. The roughly outline of EVO’s schedule can be found here. When Preppy posts the brackets, I’ll be sure to link them in this post. Until then, here are some links to info regarding the top 64 for various games. Courtesy of Preppy, he rocks.
I can update this post as news unfolds. Please abstain from dick-ish behavior (like false reporting) in this thread, some of us actually care. Support and praise for local players are welcome.
EVO live stream, courtesy of Ponder (one of the Super Cannon Bros.), found originally from this thread. Quality is so-so (in contrast to what SBO had), but it kicks ass none the less. The service can allegedly handle a huge amount of traffic. The stream is off now, but all streams from EVO weekend are cached for later viewing.
There was a fair amount of counter picking in MvC2, 3s, and Tekken. For that reason, I won’t list character choices. If you’re really interested, I’m sure there are other resources on SRK for you to research the matter. Characters were included for CvS2 because that was how they appeared in the post I harvested the info from.

- No NW talent in the ST top 8.
- Nate “XTG” Montes made it out of his ST pool in the loser’s bracket but fell shy of the top 8.
- Pablo_the_Mex Basilio peaced out of ST by Tom Cannon. Seattle pride either way, since the Cannon Bros. used to live around here.
- Alex “umbrellastyle” Kelly is out of ST.
- Joshua “JTM” Ray in top 32 for Tekken.
- Sam “Hebrew Hammer” Yatchmenoff out of 3s, but put up a good fight in ST.
- Look at Marvel. This is what happens when Seattle doesn’t attend. What happened to Chunk? And yes, all of Team Beast Coast for the 5v5 made top 8.
- Josh “JTM” Ray over TomHilfiger 10-2 in a Tekken mm.
- Marvel looks REALLY choppy in the feed.
-I think Preppy was on the big screen at -16:00 of the second MvC2 pool block footage. Might’ve been Ranma though, since he also uses that team periodically. Edit: confirmed that it was Ranma.
- Duc Jr. loses game 1 badly to Demon Hyo, then resets game 2 before getting perfected at the very end of (roughly -3:00) Part 4 of the MvC2 live feed footage.
- Duc Jr. 10-6 over JWong’s low tier team of Jill, Ruby Heart, Ken. Allegations of coaching arose.
- Valle over JWong in 3s pools.
- Complaints voiced by some players over the best-of-1 pool format for 3s.
- JWong over John Choi in the 5 game exhibition:
Choi wins A2 3-0
Wong wins MvC2 3-0
Choi wins ST 3-1
Wong wins 3S 3-1
Wong wins CvS2 3-2
Credit mostly to Deezo and Preppy, but also harvested from various threads and IRC. Again, NOT official results here.
Some MvC2 MM updates a la Preppy from the EVO results thread:
potter over nelson 10-6, potter winning $400
isaac loses to potter 5-1 and has to get a pink POTTER temporary tattoo
josh lost to duc 5-2
yipes beat chunksta 4-1
cableguy beats eric 7-5
cableguy beats infinite 7-5
fanatic over eric 5-0
illan beat eric 5-2
illan beat desmond ‘x’ 4-2
bill “deus” over sanford 4-2
Looks like WC took a lot of money despite EC dominating the top 8. Claims by Potter that Team West Coast took the after hours MvC2 5v5 in a score of 16-9 have thus far been unsubstantiated. I’d love to see the vids though. Also, post more pics of that Toyota with Puzzle Fighter decals! That was hot. If I become a multi-billionaire, one of my cars will have Mega Man and Roll art featured.
Wuz going to leave this post alone because having, “Last edited by FMJaguar : Yesterday at 12:31 AM.” at the bottom of the page was so sexy. But decided to add more details because
