The biggest weekend in the fighting genre kicked off just a short while ago and we at Shoryuken want to help ensure that everyone in attendance at Evo, as well as those viewing it from home, have all of the necessary information to get the most out of the experience. Whether you just made it out of your pools, recently fired up one of the many official streams, or if you’ve got sweaty palms while awaiting your first match at a major, you’re sure to find something of use below!

First, for live results from the event, be sure to keep an eye on our results page. If you’d like to keep your own magnifying glass on the brackets as they are reported to judges, Bavo Bruylandt of SRK Rankings fame has put together a helpful tool designed for just that purpose.
