UltraChenTV should indeed be interesting with them not being at the event and watching it like everyone else.

EDIT: That's http://www.twitch.tv/ultrachentv/ for anyone interested in what the EVO commentators have to say. They're normally on around 8PM PST.

P4A beating out KOF suprises me. I wonder if it will continue to do so or if it was just because of it being the new thing. I was away for the whole weekend so I couldn't see a single match, will probably go back and watch a few choice archives. I really wanted to see the first to ten match with Frutsy vs Chris G, cause seeing how people adapt is what sets top players apart. Looking forward to UltraChenTV tonight!

With what may be the final Season's Beatings event over, I'll leave you with the amount of entrants for each game who made it to Cleveland. Interesting reading.

Marvel - 149

AE - 145

P4A - 77

KOF - 60

TTT2 - 54

DOA5 - 35

MK - 27

SCV - 23

I expect DOA5 numbers to pick up with time, the MK scene should keep MK around that number but SCV I'm not so sure about.

@FLStyle: Yeah, I'm glad they are actually going to bother to keep tweaking it post launch. While that move doesn't totally break the game still +7 frames on block is crazy.

@FLStyle: Yeah, I saw an awful lot of Jann Lee and especially Ayane because of her broken 66KK4

Patches are in the works to make the playing field a little more even according to the PL post-match interview, he's had a lot of discussions with the devs who were there.

So, I didn't catch the end. Who won the DOA stuff and who'd they use?

DOA4 and 2-time Mortal Kombat EVO champion Perfect Legend used Gen Fu (at the asking of the DOA5 director) against a Jann Lee player, but lost the first match, so he switched to Jann Lee and beat him 3 matches in a row against the other guy's Jann Lee.

PL's main normally is actually Ayane.

  • Chris G dominant this weekend, congrats to him
  • Combofiend shouldn't feel too bad about what happened, this isn't another Aris incident, he just needs to remove that specific word from his vocabulary
  • Congrats to the two streamers Console Gaming and Addmitt filling in for Spooky, I hope Spooky himself isn't too down about not making the event
Posted by JJOR64

Just started watching. Will watch the archive for Grand Finals AE for sure.

Posted by thegoldencat7

Oh dear, Combofiend pulling a Ryan Davis. Kotaku will no doubt be informed.

Yeah I don't think Infiltration got his tactics right at all. He played the match-up like he was fighting Zangief, constantly backing off and cornering himself. K-Brad could just focus purely on offence. He did play really clean though.

Posted by FLStyle

No way! KBRAD is the winner defeating the EVO champion Infiltration in the GF.

Crazy Cammy play.

Posted by DocHaus

Infiltration knocked over by KBRAD. Did anyone see that coming?

Edited by thegoldencat7

Well my money was on Chris G but I can't be too happy about the result. The ideal outcome would have been for them to both somehow lose.

Infiltration Vs. Alex Valle up first.

Get hype!

Posted by FLStyle

UMVC3 First to 15

Chris G 15 - 10 Filipino Champ

The EVO champion was far from his best against the man he beat to make the EVO grand final, EVO 2012's 3rd place, Chris G.

Both East Coast and West Coast coaches and hype-men were awesome

SSFIV: AE 2012 Top 16 next, followed by UMVC3 Top 16.

Posted by DocHaus

So where's the VF5FS stream? I mean it came out in the states this year so surely there are some dedicated people rearin' to go, right?

...right?

P4A ran way past its finishing time so TTT2 top 8 is on now on stream 2 and SFxT is either happening off-stream or has been cancelled altogether because you know, it's a piece of shit.

Posted by ImmortalSaiyan

Sucks that I probably wont be home to watch the first to 10. Will have to watch the archive.

Sounds like it's been a good exhibition, I'll have to check out the archive.

EDIT: No archive, I'll find what I can.

Posted by thegoldencat7

Yeah pretty much. They call it running the gauntlet. Everyone ends up playing everyone so its not like it gives the US team an advantage.

Pretty goddamn hype so far.

Posted by AURON570

Alright I have a question, how come America always gets to alternate between their players, while players on the other 'World' team have to play all their matches in one go? Is it like home rules or something?

Pretty exciting stuff though, good to see them trying out new teams.

Edited by DocHaus

Wow, just watching a Marvel match, Tayson taunts Justin Wong when he's one hit away from victory, Wong responds with Iron Fist's Level 3 super and wins the match instead. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?

EDIT: Also, there's about 13.5K eyeballs on the ConsoleCombat stream now, so the thing has pretty much slowed down to slideshow mode.

Posted by thegoldencat7

The USA Vs the World Marvel exhibition has started.

Stream here.

Posted by Fire_Of_The_Wind

Does anyone know when Fchamp will be playing against Chrisg? Or if it already happened can you point me to an archive?

Sad times, I'll update the blog.

The Pre-Show is live now.

Drunk Yipes Vs. Viscant right now.

Posted by DocHaus

No animu fighters? :(

Seriously though, best of luck to all those heading to the tourney to engage in digital fisticuffs. Don't suppose any GB duders are making a quixotic run?

Edited by thegoldencat7

Yeah you're probably right about all those. ChrisG/Fchamp will probably go down to the wire though.

There's also going to be a USA Vs the World 5on5 Exhibition. The US team is obviously a strong favourite there.

And there's going to be an EG Vs the World SF4 thing. Can't say I find the notion that exciting but I'll say the World for that as they'll have the EVO #1 & #2.

Posted by ImmortalSaiyan

Season's beating shaping up to be great this year. There are just so many games. Hopefully each gets good stream time. Will there be multiple stream? I don't want AE and Marvel dominating the steam even though I do like those games.

Posted by Reddy1124

Who do you guys think are going win the MVC3 ft15s?

They are:

FChamp vs. ChrisG

Frutsy vs. ChrisG

OMG itz Andre vs. CJShowstopper

Personally, I think Champ, ChrisG, and Andre.

Posted by Downside

I can't wait to see Champ squash Chris G

Posted by SuperWristBands

Love ya FLStyle, I seem to always be unaware that these things are happening despite following a few of the bigger FGC guys on twitter. I would have missed it if not for this.

Posted by Napalm

I can respect the beating Infiltration gave everybody, but I really hope this doesn't turn into him running another train on literally every SSFIVAE player.

Posted by casper_

whens marvel?

Can't wait to see Mame Spider back in action. I sincerely hope the turnout for AE gets close to matching Marvel. I love both games but the SF community has been doing other stuff as of late.

That's pretty damn awesome that their first matches were against each other.

Also Kappa.

AE is so hype omg. (unless its rufus)

and who can not get hype for marvel? It's awesome.
