Stream and Media Outlets

EVO Stream 1

Our flagship stream, produced by Team Spooky, will broadcast Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition on Friday and Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on Saturday. The stream will cover these tournaments start to finish, from the qualifying pools to the quarterfinal and semi final brackets, culminating in the top 8 players of all tournament games on Sunday.

EVO Stream 1 will feature a 100% all-star commentary team with vets like Ultradavid, James Chen, the WakeupSRK crew, Ryan Hunter, and Seth Killian.

EVO Stream 2

Offcast and FinestKO are teaming up to bring you our second tournament stream, which will broadcast the Mortal Kombat 9 tournament on Friday, and the Tekken 6 and BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2 tournaments on Saturday. Here too you won’t miss any tournament action! We will stick with each tournament from the qualifying pools all the way to the top 8 players.

EVO After Hours Stream

Of course, there’s a lot more competitive juice at EVO besides the official tournaments. To give you the full EVO experience, Iplaywinner.com will bring you special after hours content, featuring grudge matches between top players in a special, invite-only event. This stream will start shortly after our offical broadcast ends, and run until the IPW crew conks out or when we run out of alcohol, whichever comes first.

But wait…there’s more!

Live Marvel vs. Capcom 3 East Coast vs. West Coast Draft!

This year rivals from the east coast and west coast will square off for bragging rights in our 5 on 5 Marvel vs Capcom 3 exhibition. Thurday July 28th, IPW will host the live draft, where west coast team captain Justin Wong and east coast captain Nerd Josh will announce their picks for the east and west teams.

Really working forward to this.  Sadly, I will most likely be working those days, but I will watch as much as I can.

I really hate how they say Daigo's name in that trailer

At least you won't miss it all then. It's going to be great to watch.

The guy must have be hired for just that recording, probably had the lines emailed to him, which would explain why he said "Daygo."

News on a Marvel 3 panel at this year's Evo:
 

Friday, 4pm (Amazon Ballroom)

Capcom producer Ryota Niitsuma will share behind-the-scenes insights from the MVC3 development process and discuss thoughts on the future direction of the Marvel Vs Capcom franchise.  He will be joined by MVC3 battle system designer and Capcom fighting legend Hidetoshi (“Neo_G”) Ishizawa (see below for credits) to discuss the thinking behind the battle systems, and what the future might hold for everything from character balance, mechanics, and more.  Fighting fans will not want to miss this rare opportunity for insight and discussion.

From Seth Killian:

“The FGC is already familiar with producer Niitsuma-san, but please DO NOT sleep on Neo_G, who doesn’t draw a lot of headlines, but is one of my personal fighting game heroes of all time.

EVO2011 will be his first public appearance anywhere outside of Japan, and if you’ve ever had a nerdy question about why some feature is this way instead of that way, Neo_G is the man with the answers.  He is an accomplished player, my friend, and one of the most knowledgeable people about fighting games on the planet.  He has been a key member of the team behind a TON of the FGC’s all time Capcom favorites—see below for his unbelievable credits list.  Join me for a very special opportunity to meet him alongside producer Niitsuma-san, and help me to show him what an impact his lifetime of work has made to fighting gamers around the world!”

A partial list of Neo_G’s credits include:

–Marvel vs Capcom 2, Designer

–Marvel VS. Capcom 3, Battle System Designer

–Street Fighter Alpha 2, Designer

–Street Fighter Alpha 3, Designer

–Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX, Director, Assistant Producer

–Street Fighter III, Designer

–Street Fighter III: 2nd IMPACT, Director

–Street Fighter III: 3rd STRIKE, Director

–Darkstalkers 3, Designer

–Capcom VS. SNK 2, Lead Designer

–Hyper Street Fighter II (Arcade Version), Director

–Tatsunoko VS. Capcom, Designer

–Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, Director

I've left a comment to see if it'll be recorded at all. It would be cool to get some insight as well as see how many people have the balls to question their choice on Level 3 Dark Phoenix and other dominant characters.

#14 Posted by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

OP updated with stream info.

#15 Edited by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

While two streams is cool and all, I just hate they way they've split them up to appease the people who think Capcom fighting games are the only ones worth anybody's time. We really don't need morons like that or people like the EVO staff making it look okay.

In terms of commentary I can't wait for Ryan Hunter to make all the dumbass stream monsters realize how uninformative James Chen and Ultradavid really are. I guarantee every one of you guys, even the ones who have been playing SF4 since it first came out hardcore, will learn something new. Also I hope to see NorCal commentators for MvC3 on Top 8 day for some great entertainment, both in commentary and stream monster bitching.

Personally I can't wait to see how MK goes, theres a lot of unexplored characters still that some people are pulling out at EVO.

EDIT: Also IPWCoopa, one of the people who will be running stream two mentioned all of this like a week ago, but at the time he say BBCS2 wasn't getting streamed, so either something changed or the EVO staff is misinformed.

So. Glad need josh is captian.

#17 Posted by ThePhantomnaut (6197 posts) -

I got a press pass to the event but will just need a ride. If I do go, expect me covering the 3rd Strike Invitational, KOFXIII, previewing 3SOE and Skullgirls, and reviewing the Balrog movie!

#18 Edited by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

No Adam Sessler commentary confirmed! Tony and Tom Cannon have been chatting on the Live on Three show on the OneMoreGame.TV stream. Best news ever. I'll definitely embed the archive when it's up.

        

EVO chat with EVO's Tom and Tony Cannon begins at 50 minutes. They chat about Team Spooky and the other streamers, the commentators and EVO 2011.

#19 Posted by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

Just updated the OP with news that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be playable at Evo.

Which, by the way, is in a week!

Luckily I'm not doing anything during the weekend so I'll be able to watch this, also I'm hoping at least 3 U.S players make top 8.

Thanks to Slaker117 for posting this when my thread limit was reached.

Important notes since my last post.

  • You'll find the Evo streams embeded on the first page, a long with a link to the pools showing who will fight who
  • Evo Stream 1 (The Team Spooky stream) will stream across PlayStation Home all weekend

PS. G4 did a documentary with Street Fighter player Mike Ross, it's a good watch.

In the fighting game scene, SF4 is more popular. There are a lot of people who actually hate MK9.

actually he wasnt trollling, you on the other hand showed how you know very little if anything about the fighting game community
#30 Edited by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

YES LETS TURN THIS THREAD INTO A DEBATE OVER WHICH GAME IS BETTER
/sarcasm

#31 Posted by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

I'm going to do a blog this weekend about fighting games and the fighting game community, there's a lot to be said about MK9's mainstream popularity in comparsion with its standing in the fighting game community.

This time tomorrow Evo will be on, it will be hype and it'll be the best one yet

#32 Posted by StarvingGamer (8128 posts) -

IN THE FGC WE FUCKING HATE SCRUBS RARRARRAR

I'm just super sad that they won't be streaming any of the panels. I'd even be willing to pay for VoDs. I AM SO FUCKING HYPE

#33 Posted by nazer858 (131 posts) -

stream 1 on ps3, stream 2 on my comp - can't wait

#34 Posted by ThunderSlash (1637 posts) -

I remember last year when the stream cut out at the very last moment. I pray to the internet streaming gods that it won't happen this year.

#35 Posted by StarvingGamer (8128 posts) -

@ThunderSlash: OMG I totally remember that, but I was kinda over SSFIV by the finals. Watching Daigo trounce Ricky wasn't nearly as Hype as the shit with Vangief and GamerBee and JWong.

#36 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

So some of the stuff to be announced in panel is starting to come out due to booths already being set up. For example, the KOF13 boxart:

Hoping the EVO staff doesn't pull an AH3 on this game next year, would love to be playing it at EVO 2012 since I'm seriously planning on going.
#37 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

MvC3 East Coast vs West Coast 5v5 draft is live on main EVO stream

#38 Posted by StarvingGamer (8128 posts) -

@ricetopher: I hope Viscant gets drafted even though he won't but I hope he will. Will WC get 5 Wolverine/???/Phoenix teams?

#39 Edited by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

If you took this clip and brought it back in time to the MvC2 days I wonder what the players would think, the MvC2 5v5 was so fueled by the shit talk and this just feels so forced.
 
East: Chris G, PR Rog, Masta CJ, NerdJosh, MarlinPie
West: Combofiend, F. Champ, Floe, Justin Wong, Viscant

#40 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I hope Dieminion and Dagger_G come this year.

#41 Posted by StarvingGamer (8128 posts) -

@ricetopher: I'm at work any can't watch, any juicy picks?

#42 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -
@StarvingGamer: Just edited my previous post with the picks.
@Napalm: I don't know about Dagger G, but Dieminion is there.
#43 Posted by StarvingGamer (8128 posts) -

@ricetopher: SQUEEEEE VISCANT, I really hope he ends up playing against MarlinPie.

Yeah, MK9 is way more popular. That's why they cancelled several MK9 tourneys at Guard Crush (in NYC) due to poor attendance.

#45 Posted by JJOR64 (18939 posts) -

So will the stream be under EVO's UStream page or Team Spooky's UStream page?

#46 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -
@StarvingGamer: 5v5 is round robin format, everyone will play each other.
@JJOR64: The stream is the EVO UStream which FLStyle linked in the OP.
#47 Posted by StarvingGamer (8128 posts) -

@ricetopher: Oh awesome, so no chance of a boring-ass team-kill.
