The biggest fighting game event of the year is just a few weeks away. For those of you not lucky enough to attend in person, we’ve been working overtime to provide an incredible online viewing experience. If you‘ve watched the EVO trailer, you already know that we’ve teamed up with the incredible combo of IPW X Team Spooky to deliver our online stream. Now, I’m happy to share some of our streaming plans for EVO weekend.
We know lots of you want to see as much of the “big two” (Super Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs. Capcom 3) as possible, and others of you want to see the full breadth of games on the EVO roster. For the first time this year, EVO is providing multiple simultaneous streams to truly provide the full EVO experience to our viewers.
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.
