  • Night l Crawler

    is the eastern time or what?

    • dantemustdie

      Considering Evo is taking place on the west coast, I would assume they’re Pacific times.

    • SDC

      Evo is in Las Vegas. The times listed are Pacific.

    • ShinOwen

      @Night I Crawler Im with you why do you ppl not put EST down also wth, do we not matter?

      • pressstart

        With all the streams that have been going on, they probably figure people know the time zone difference between pacific and east.

      • SFGIEF

        adding 3 hours is so difficult?

        • b3nz0r

          I lol’d

  • MR.DoWork

    Really?? SF on Friday=whack as hell!!!

    • Private Eyeball

      Probably because it and MvC3 are both gonna be huge. This way neither game has to compete. And obviously MvC3 is seen as the bigger event, noted by it being listed as last for Sunday.

  • MastaKojo

    They probably plan it this way so Mahvel and SSF4 don’t overlap each other.

  • Kyo_Vandit

    Why bother Daigo got this….

    • OrehRatiug

      I love positive attitudes like this.

      • Minekiesty


    • ShinOwen

      @Kyo_vandit Do you have this attitudes with the ladys, cause if its yes your going to be a virgin your whole life.

    • SFGIEF

      Challenge accepted

  • TheRetroKid

    damn, folks gotta report in at 8AM for AE? they don’t even let us check into the hotel until like 12.

    • Colino

      That’s why you get to Vegas on Thursday man!

      • bigtymers1211

        Everyone knows if u travel to event like this, its always better to be there a day in advance, in case shit hit the fan, but Retro if u need to have ur stuff put aside while u play ur match on Friday, just ask the hotel staff to store ur lugagge and get a claim ticket, or just find some members that are already there early(perferably ppl u know, but Evo attendee should be okay) and ask them to store ur stuff for you until u’re done with matches.)

        • TheRetroKid

          For sure, thanks for the heads-up. Yeah, a lot of my friends couldn’t get Thursday off so we’re driving down from the bay area over night to get there Friday. It’s going to be tight, but I guess that’s how it’s going to have to be with the schedule the way it is.

          • Colino

            Don’t worry about it. I had the same issue last year and we left from L.A. in the evening to get in Vegas at night. Just get some rest in and hope you’re in the afternoon pools so you don’t have to play at 8AM.

  • GcYoshi13

    I find this information to be greatly helpful, now I know I don’t have to ask to take Friday off as I’m not in AE 😛

  • Orochi Ganon

    I enjoy watching mvc3 as much as anyone here but make it on top of AE makes it… err I dont know, feels really awkward. Oh well it’ll be good nonetheless.

  • Guessing23

    I’m really happy they’re doing mvc3 last, since I live on the east coast. means I can get some sleep, instead of staying up till 2am watching ae.

  • TrollThisSRK

    Can someone confirm Marvel is the headlining event on sunday? Just because they list them in that order doesn’t make it so.

    Poor choice if marvel is last. I’d be surprised if it has as many entrees as AE.

    • damienjeffgomez

      thats true….how the hell do we know for sure marvel is last?

      • Guessing23

        we dont, I’m just hoping ae isnt last cause I want to get some sleep before I go into work the next morning.

        • Unable to Connect

          Ditto. I wouldn’t worry about it. The last night (Sunday) usually doesn’t last as long as Friday or Saturday nights. I’m willing to bet it’s over around 11pm EST on Sunday.

  • Thirtyfour

    why is there blazblue

    it’s going to have like NO VIEWS


    • The Lone Dragon

      Lol @ thinking EVO is here to please stream viewers.

      First and foremost, this is a fighting game tournament.

      It’s all about the PLAYERS not the WATCHERS.

    • PurpleLemonadeGGPO

      I’m going to Evo and paying my ass out of venue fees solely to entertain you moronic stream monsters spamming “oni is banned”

      • Ilthuain

        “ONI IS BANNED”

        Ahh, the stream. Why wouldn’t you want to entertain these wonderful people?

        • stefanten

          Don’t forget about the rampant racism, sexism and making fun of everyone’s appearance. Fighting game stream chats brings out the worst in people for some reason.

          • Ilthuain

            God help you if you’re an overweight asian who appears on the stream… or a woman! The madness won’t even stop for a moment.

  • Eileithyia

    ae is probably super huge. they need an entire day and the entire venue for it?

    • PurpleLemonadeGGPO

      Mortal Kombat is on Friday too. Please read.

    • Necrophile

      I hope they have 2 streams on Friday, one for AE, one for MK9.

      AE = a LOT of good matches
      MK9 = some good matches
      Marvel = some good matches

      Andre the Bison player has 0 AE seeding points, but a match between Andre and Daigo is still better to watch

      than an MvC3 match between Justin and another guy with 0 seeding points. I prefer Street Fighter to MvC3 in general.

      but top 32 MvC3 and MK9 will definitely be exciting when its top players competing vs each other.

  • Blacksonic21

    So Marvel is going to be last? If so good, Marvel brings the real hype especially if Yipes is going to be popping off on commentary.

  • The_Third

    As always, weaboos are expected to be up early in the morning. Always.

  • Kyo_Vandit

    @ShinOwen I am actually married, all i said was that daigo got ae which he does, and you got all salty about it and started talking about “ladys” i mean serious? =)

  • Shoryu Reppa

    Yoooooo shout outs to marvel being last, now I can head over to little darlings EVEN EARLIER

  • TheRetroKid

    that also means folks that are there to participate/watch AE will have saturday off to get chocolate wasted

  • Colino

    Is there a schedule for the special events/panels like the Balrog Movie and the 3S Grandmaster Invitational?

  • BigMovement

    My body is ready for the East vs West Marvel 5v5

  • CHomes

    I think i’ma schedule Friday and Monday off LOL need my days off to recouperate from a gdlk tourney.

  • Kyomaa

    Spooky is doin the stream right?

  • purbeast

    wow what a shitty schedule … pretty annoyed that AE is on Friday, I was planning on doing other shit in Vegas that day.

    • purbeast

      also anyone know if they will at least release the times that the different pools will be played? really don’t want to spend all day just sitting around waiting. never been to evo so i’m not sure how it works.

      • inkblot

        Yes, pool assignments and specific times for each pools will be released about a week before the tournament.

        • Colino

          Hi Tom, sorry to derail but is there going to be a schedule for the other events like the Balrog Movie screening and the Third Strike Exhibition? Thanks in advance!

  • bigtymers1211

    God dammit, they have to setup Marvel on Saturday…I got my buffet pass on Saturday man, guess I gotta do reschedule…anyway, if u all can go to EVO, Just go, that way u don’t have to wait around on the stream, beside, they ahve TTT2 setup, and maybe SF x T as well. I know I am there.

  • liana-c
