Thanks for all the information, not really kept up with all the EVO goings on this year.

I wish you hadn't mentioned they were rebroadcasting evo11 right now though, I need to get some sleep!

I'm looking forward to Floe playing I Want to be the Guy: Gaiden. I could tell from Kayin's tweets while he was making the game that he worked hard to really mess with him. I expect a lot of delicious rage. XD

@FLStyle: Thanks for posting this, I've been enjoying watching these even though I don't really play fighting games or understand the jargon some of the commentators mention during the streams. The chat sucks though, but I just turn that off anyway.

I think it's weird that I don't like to play Marvel 3 at all but damn do I love watching steams. It's so hype all the time.

Gonna try to watch Marvel, AE, SFxT, GG, and CvS2. I've never actually seen Melty Blood before but I know what it is. I've also never seen a GG or CvS2 tournament before. Alotta firsts this EVO. This weekend is gonna be crazy.

@FLStyle: Is there anymore info about the Virtua Fighter stream? I've been playing a bit of that game, and would totally be down for catching a couple of matches on that stream.

Why are they doing day by day on stream 1 and splitting the games over 2 days on stream 2 ? =( Would've made more sense to go SF and MK first day and MvC and KoF the second. Still, gonna be a great weekend =D

That didn't disappoint. Kayin did an awesome job with the game. Great commentary from James and Justin. And Floe of course brought the salt. xD

Thanks for tuning in and commenting so far, if you're like me and weren't able to watch the pre-show you can watch the archive here http://www.twitch.tv/srkevo1/b/323841904

EDIT: I just tried it myself without being logged in, it's blocking me from it so it looks like you do have to be subscribed.

The main action starts today, check the schedule section in the OP to find out what's on. I'll be back to join in with you when I get back from work later in the day. Shout-out to for helping out.

Shoryuken.com posted info and the grand finals of all the Road to EVO events from January to June - http://shoryuken.com/2012/07/05/evo-2012-the-largest-fighting-game-tournament-of-the-year-starts-in-less-than-24-hours/

@mustachioeugene: @NegativeCero: No problem, hope you enjoy!

@C2C: Sega literally had no-one to stream until a VF community member got in touch with a Sega rep, he then posted a thread in a VF forum to try and get a last minute stream together. So everything is up in the air at the moment for how it's going to go down, I suggest just keeping 8WayRun open in a tab and keep checking back, also his Twitter is @8wayrun

Really looking forward to the 5v5 for MK9, gotta wait until 4am so I hope either side doesn't get dominated too much.

Thanks for posting all the layouts and links, makes it really easy to stay up to date.

@Carryboy: It's just a regular Twitch.tv auto-archive as far as I'm aware, 720p archive may be subscription only.

EDIT: I just tried it myself without being logged in, it's blocking me from it so it looks like you do have to be subscribed.

@Carryboy: I've left a tweet with Tony Cannon and Twitch.tv on Twitter to see if they can remove the 480p, 360p and 240p archives from the subscription model. That's the best I can do I'm afraid, sorry about that.

Very helpful list, thanks.

I sort of grew apart from the FGC after Cross Assault and Gootecks' leaving, I've taken a break from the games too. But, Evo is Evo, can't miss that shit.

Thanks a lot for making this thread. I hope it's just as crazy this year as last year. I'm really looking forward to some KoF XIII personally. I hope Maximillian dood competes.

@TurboMan: That was awesome last year after the crazy shit that happened in MvC3

Stream 2 is finally up with KoF XIII. First up is Poongko vs Kazunoko

EDIT: Oh shit, that was quick. Poongko made short work of that.
