Popi will now be joined by Level|Up Series’ Alex Valle and Dieminion of Empire Arcadia. Team Wildcard sat in second place of the overall voting in the last poll; do you see their chances changing with this new arrangement?
A new poll has been included below with the updated listings.
After a bit of discussion on Twitter last week, the Evo 2013 organizers are now set to announce a very special exhibition event. In addition to the exciting singles tournaments that will be running all weekend long, an international Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 team tournament will see some of the greatest players from around the world team up to prove their region is the best.
Each of the eight teams team will include three competitors who will be character locked throughout the entire single-elimination bracket. While the bragging rights earned from winning this tournament are sweet, the promise of a $1000 first place prize will definitely add to that.
