Super Street Fighter II Turbo, now in its 19th year of competition, returns to the tournament circuit for 2013! And it’s all thanks to YOU and tournament organizers around the globe who are taking part in the dream of seeing ST returned to the grandest stage!

Last year, The <b>TOURNAMENT OF LEGENDS</b> created unprecedented success and attention for the venerable arcade fighter that birthed competitive fighting games. World Warriors from around the globe attended major after major, culminating in a Saturday night, EVO-stage showdown between two of Japan’s top Grand Masters, watched by over 28,000 viewers on the main EVO stream.

Riding this new wave of popularity, for the 2013 season, the ST Revival Committee brings you: “<b>THE ST GAMES</b>”. An Olympic-style competition to be played out at majors across the country and ultimately at EVO 2013 in July at the Paris in Las Vegas, NV!

<b>THE ST GAMES</b> at EVO will be comprised of four tournaments:

<b>Event #1: RATIO TOURNAMENT:</b> Spend your points carefully to create the perfect team from the entire ST cast.

<b>Event #2: 3 VS 3 TEAM TOURNAMENT:</b> The quintessential, classic ST team event!

<b>Event #3: CHARACTER LOCK TOURNAMENT:</b> Choose your one true World Warrior, through thick and thin, in good times and in bad, in 9-1 matchups and 2-8’s!

<b>Event #4: THE GRAND FINALE:</b> Win 3/5 matches to advance, double elimination, no holds barred (although Akuma is)!

And prior to EVO, players will be able to earn “ST Games” points at the following tournaments:

<b>So Cal Regionals January 19th Irvine, CA
Winter Brawl February 23rd – 24th Philadelphia, PA
Texas Showdown April 12th – 14th Houston, TX
Gamecenter April 13th San Mateo, CA
Civil War April 19th – 21st Richmond, VA
East Coast Throwdown May 18th – 19th Morristown, NJ
Arcade Legacy June 15th Cincinnati, OH
Northwest Majors TBA Seattle, WA
Super Arcade TBA Walnut, CA</b>

<b>The player with the overall highest score becomes THE EVO 2013 ST GAMES CHAMPION!</b>

How will the 5v5 teams be determined?

<blockquote class=“Quote” rel=“ultracombo”>How will the 5v5 teams be determined?</blockquote>

That will be up to the team captains (Damdai and AfroLegends).


#5

Great to see some Mid-Atlantic tourney representation. I can’t confirm my status at Evo, but I’ll definitely try to make Civil War this year.


#6

Nice. Seems much bigger in scope than TOL.

No plans on giving points to non-US tournaments?


#7

It should be an exciting tournament this year at Evo, especially since it’s an open tournament, and there’ll be all sorts of different strategies and schemes this year for the ratio and team tournaments.


#8

We’d like to add some more tournaments on the way, especially foreign tournaments. So hopefully this tournament list is not the complete list yet.

Also, just to clarify, while the best situation for a player would be to enter EVO with 5 points, it’s not like a qualifier where those players are the only ones who can participate. Anyone can enter ST GAMES at EVO. The maximum number of points a player will be able to get if they win a pre-EVO tourney and all four ST GAMES tournaments is 45.

Very good people, get hype!!

once again thank you and job well done to the ST Games staff! :)>-<br><br>any midwest players need to make it out to this event. you will enjoy the entire event itself with all the oldschool games (ST, Alpha 2, Darkstalkers, etc), you will enjoy the venue with so many good arcade games all on free play, and you will enjoy the food court directly outside the arcade. i think those are all important things. lol<br>
