- schedule: shoryuken.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/evo-stream-schedule.png

- Nintendo blocked Smash Bros. Melee's streaming even though the Smash fans raised about $100,000 to get their game on EVO. Nintendo sucks.

- On the other hand, MK9 and Injustice have a dedicated stream. Warner Bros. is really generous.

- Numbers of entrants for each game:

1. SSF4 AE v2012 - 1,601 players
2. UMvC3 - 1,297 players
3. Smash - 696 players
4. Injustice - 582 players
5. SFxT - 545 players
6. KoF13 - 433 players
7. P4A - 400 players
8. TTT2 - 355 players
9. MK9 - 233 players

Nintendo lifted the block on Smash Bros last thing I heard:

Quote :
Update: Looks like Nintendo is now giving permission to let the stream go on. Shoryuken has the update with the good news.

Ive just receive word from Nintendo that the Evo Smash Bros. Melee stream will be allowed to proceed. We will be restoring the original stream and tournament schedules. Obviously this is a huge [relief] for all of us here and were thrilled that the world will get to see the best Smash players fight it out this weekend. Thanks to everyone online who supported both Evo and Smash.

Well, Persona and KOF have a lot of international players competing unlike Tekken. I agree though; Tekken is slowly dying in the West.

Ironically, SoulCaliburV which didn't receive as much support as TTT2 from Namco, had over 400 participants last year.

Is there a proper timetable for all this? I'm probably going to miss it all since we're having a BBQ all weekend.

That's in the first post. None of that tells me what time it will all be happening for me, which is what I was after.

For the first time in years the Tekken finals were actually a lot of fun to watch. Great character variety, instead of just Bob, Law and Steve a dozen times. I don't think any characters were used twice, everyone had different team. Bronson Tran vs NIN was great.

Only one person has played Steve in T6's Evo Top 8s (Nin).
You just hate Steve.

But you played Lars and Leo you tier-whore!

I'll be watching Injustice today. It's my favourite 2d fighter of all time; cool characters, solid gameplay, flashy and, most importantly, very scrubby to play.

Daigo vs Tokido was interesting, but Daigo choked big time at the end and is now in losers.

Smash Bros and Injustice are really boring to watch.

You think Superman throwing TVs at Batman, Aquaman getting wet and Dick poking with his long staff is boring to watch?!

I thought King Of Fighters was pretty cool...really wanna see Marvel Vs Capcom and Street Fighter too, but I'm not sure if I can stay up that late.

Don't these old people feel embarrassed for playing Smash Bros. at a tournament watched by thousands?
