Super Turbo Revival Announces The ST Games for Evolution 2013

By on February 11, 2013 at 1:01 pm

Following the success of Evolution 2012’s Super Street Fighter II Turbo tournament series, TOURNAMENT OF LEGENDS, Kuroppi and the Super Turbo Revival team are putting together another series for EVO 2013, THE ST GAMES. Like TOL, THE ST GAMES consists of a series of events held at major fighting game tournaments, culminating in the finals at Evolution 2013.

THE ST GAMES at EVO will be comprised of four tournaments:

Event #1: RATIO TOURNAMENT: Spend your points carefully to create the perfect team from the entire ST cast.

Event #2: 3 VS 3 TEAM TOURNAMENT: The quintessential, classic ST team event!

Event #3: CHARACTER LOCK TOURNAMENT: Choose your one true World Warrior, through thick and thin, in good times and in bad, in 9-1 matchups and 2-8’s!

Event #4: THE GRAND FINALE: Win 3/5 matches to advance, double elimination, no holds barred (although Akuma is)!

Each ST GAMES tournament awards points for the top 8 finishers as follows:

1st Place – 10 points
2nd Place – 7 points
3rd Place – 5 points
4th Place – 3 points
5th Place – 2 points
7th Place – 1 point

Players will also be able to earn a limited amount of points at the following tournaments:

  • So Cal Regionals – January 19th – Irvine, CA
  • Winter Brawl – February 23rd – 24th – Philadelphia, PA
  • Texas Showdown – April 12th – 14th – Houston, TX
  • Civil War – April 19th – 21st – Richmond, VA
  • East Coast Throwdown – May 18th – 19th – Morristown, NJ
  • Northwest Majors – TBA – Seattle, WA
  • Super Arcade – TBA – Walnut, CA

Each tournament awards points for the top 8 finishers as follows:

  • 1st Place – 5 points
  • 2nd Place – 4 points
  • 3rd Place – 3 points
  • 4th Place – 2 points
  • 5th – 8th Place – 1 point

The player with the overall highest score will become the 2013 ST GAMES Champion. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Players will be able to earn a maximum of 5 points prior to EVO.
If a player who has already earned 5 points places at a future tournament, those points will not be awarded. (Example: Player A wins 1st place and 5 points at Tournament A. Player A then goes on to win 1st place at Tournament B. Player A will not be awarded any points and those five points will not be awarded. The 2nd place finisher will be awarded 4 points as normal.)
