Alright… with only two+ weeks to go, Im gettin’ pretty hype…
Here’s what evo did right in the previous years IMO. Hopefully they’ll continue to come through…
EVENTS - This is what defines Evo. Be it East/West Marvel, US/Japan 3S, Choi/Wong… these events often have more hype than the finals and are key to having EVO live up to the hype. Even events like the sf movie (as bad as it was) or a BTM screening make this tourney epic.
Exhibition Videos - Yes… this may seem corny to some, but again this defines evo as a bigtime event and separates it from other tourneys
Player Intros - I loved the intro interviews, but was really a bigger fan of pic, bio’s, and intro music from the Pomona/UCLA days. Ppl who make it into the final are the all stars of the event and deserve recognition. (That sf2-esque plane was the best shit ever)
Belts/Trophys - Again… somethin to recognize top players yo.
With Sf4, I got high hopes for this years tourney. Dont let me down, yo!
