More from News

For those who are not in the know, Evo is a massive gathering of FGC members from around the world, competing in several fighting video games that a majority see use the double elimination tournament structure (two losses and you’re out). Evo 2014 sees tournament action begin today, July 11 at 8 AM PDT (11 AM EDT), and will run through this weekend all the way to end of the final event on Sunday, July 13th (beginning at roughly 6 PM PDT). Here are this year’s events, in no particular order:

  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Ultra Street Fighter IV
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Killer Instinct
  • King of Fighters XIII
  • BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma

For more information about the schedule of events for Evo 2014, look no further than below:

The amount of players participating this year is on the downslide compared to last year’s event, but trust me when I say Evo 2014 looks to be one of the best yet. The fact that there are two blocks of announcements (plus awards) could hopefully reveal more information about upcoming fighting games. We’re still on the lookout for more Killer Instinct Season 2 information, and seeing how Nintendo acting as one of the sponsors in this year’s event we may see some new information come out about the upcoming Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros.

You can check out Stream 1, Stream 2 here and the USFIV pools over here, with a $12 premium subscription ticket t allowing HD and chat access going directly to a scholarship fund that allows those in financial need to attend events. The hype, the salt, the glory; it all begins later today at Evo 2014!
