Reminder about EVO’s Last Chance Qualifiers

It seems like there is still some confusion out there to some people so just a reminder/clarification to everyone that there are two separate Last Chance Qualifiers at EVO, with the top two from each qualifier advancing to the Tournament of Legends finals. And everyone is welcome to enter these qualifiers and everyone gets to participate at EVO. 🙂

Since a lot of the really heavy hitters will have already qualified (AfroLegends, Damdai, DGV, Valle, the Japanese players, etc.) these qualifiers will be completely up for grabs. We think there will be some incredible matches as players battle for those last prestigious qualifier spots.

Also, there may be additional qualifier spots added to the EVO Last Chance Qualifiers, if there any problems with qualifiers/invites unable to attend.

Nuki confirmed for TOURNAMENT OF LEGENDS!


We are excited to announce that Nuki has confirmed for TOURNAMENT OF LEGENDS!

A multi-game legend in both Japan and America, Nuki is not only known for his aggressive game play, but he is also recognized for his outlandish commentary during intense matches. Since the late-90s, Nuki has been a dominant force in games such as Street Fighter Alpha 3, Capcom vs. SNK 2, Street Fighter 3: Third Strike, and most notably Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo.

Nuki has competed at EVO mutilple times at the past and has placed 2nd in Super Turbo in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2008 but has never been able to take the championship. Will this year be the year Nuki finally breaks through and claims the title?

Time for thanks!

Old school Mike Watson for letting us run this event at Super Arcade. This was my first time there and I was pretty blown away at how many people support this arcade. Between the ST tournament, the SFxTekken tournament and random other people playing other games, there must have been over a hundred people there. Incredible!

Commando over at IE Battlegrounds for providing such a top notch stream. We were planning on setting up a stream for this but it wouldn’t have compared to the quality that he was able to do. Please follow him at www.twitch.tv/iebattlegrounds to help support his stream and let him improve and continue his streaming!

MuffinMan for setting up this qualifier and running the show.

Eltrouble, MillerTime, and the number of others who provided stream commentary throughout the day.

All the familiar faces and new ones for coming out and supporting ST! You guys rock!
