What are /v/'s evo 2016 roster predictions? What games will be added? What games will be dropped?
Under the assumption that there will be only 9 main games like last year id say
Persona 4 will probably be dropped
And the roster will Probably be
Melee, smash 4, USF4, SF5, MKX, KI, Tekken 7, Guilty Gear Xrd, and either marvel 3 or whatever this year's blazblue game is
Smash 4 brought in a lot of viewership though, so that's extremely unlikely. Honestly it seems like P4AU was the least talked about tourney at evo 2015 so im sure that'll be dropped and marvel has been considered dead for a while now
KoF14 if it comes out by then so Wizard can put all the KoF players in a trash compactor
Marvel 3's corpse
Melee followed by autists tipping over another 15 soda machines
Smash 4 followed by fumigation
Revelator or Blazblue
You are all free now
It's going to be the same as last year, just without SFIV. Wizard already said that Evo isn't going to be able to hold two 2000+ man SF tournaments unless they extend it to 4 days, and they didn't do that this year. Meaning, SFIV is gone. I'm sure there will be a 2v2 side tournament like 3S had the year SFIV came out.
Smash players broke a fuck ton of rules, tipped over machines, broke equipment, kicked other game players out of their area, and didn't clean up after themselves.
They're a liability and potentially cost more in damages then they bring in.
If SF4 is dropped then one of the smash games has to be dropped lest the fgc gets pissed beyond belief, especially since CEO will have both street fighter games and both smash games
Right after that EVO everyone figured out Zero and marn couldn't even get a single match off anyone, really sucks that they dropped it after that
>Marn killed it instead of MvC3
I love TvC but come on dude, the community lasted until MvC3 dropped, then the smaller bit hang on until nintendo dropped wifi despite the shit using a modified gamespy client, why the hell couldn't nintendo just merge it with the wii-u servers
>"when it has the second most entrants of any fighter"
>overtaken by both Smash games, Mortal Kombat, and even fucking Guilty Gear (an anime game, let that sink into your mind) at last year's EVO
I was mainly just joking about the whole Marn thing, but yeah, it sucks that the community died out so quickly especially since Tatsunoko is
a better game.
At least there's still netplay over Dolphin, but any chance for TvC to come back sailed a loooooong time ago.
The past few big Melee tournaments had a trend of Top64/32 being much more entertaining than Top 8 in my opinion. One big reason for that was Hungrybox.
>Also I see people dumping melee because there is no money in it.
well, there is more money in it than ever before. Dreamhack Winter had a 30k prize pot for doubles and singles. SMash Summit had a little more than that.
Marvel won't be kill but it will get the P4A slot on Friday because of the numbers dying rapidly.
Sm4sh will be Saturday again
Rest will be same as last year + SF V
Killer Instinct had more viewers than Smash 4 top 8. It won't be dropped, but will probably be the first finals on Saturday.
Does everyone think KI will still be there considering it had the smallest amount of entrants by far at evo 2015? Not even dissing KI I fucking love the game but didn't it have less than 400 entrants total at evo 2015?
It had more entries than its previous year though even if it was the lowest in 2015, just shows Evo has grown a lot.
It's getting in for sure though, MS is going all in with funding and attempting to compete with Sony and SFV
There's probably going to be more because of the PC release and the scene is growing. Last years Top 32 and grand finals being fucking insane probably helped as well. KI scene is also a lot how MK was when MK9 came out. They show up to every event even with the scene running online tournaments. Its small but hardcore and growing. They even have their own event at the end of this month.
It will probably get more than last year. Probably a little more than anime.
>t-those don't count!
Just admit it, no one wants to play Marvel because it doesn't have Da Money™ anymore and because people don't want to admit that they got outplayed by a scrub like KBR because they were sleeping on Marvel last year.
