EVO 2k12 line up officially revealed!


The game line up for this year’s ever-exciting EVO championship tournament has been revealed. The chosen games are as follows:

– Super Street Fighter IV AE 2012

– Street Fighter X Tekken

– Mortal Kombat (includes all DLC characters)

– The King of Fighters XIII

Other than the line up, a system change in the championship has been also announced on

” t’s our privilege to be able to work with so many of the grassroots tournament organizers worldwide to help seed players for Evo. In 2012 we’re making three big changes to the tournament season.


  • More tournaments, which means more chances to earn seeding points
  • All games are seeded, not just SFIV and UMvC3
  • Simplified point structure

The first two points are self-explanatory.  Here’s the new system for how points are awarded.  At each tournament:

  • 50, 25, 10 points are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place respectively
  • 1 lousy point is awarded for 4th – 16th place

We’ve made these changes to reflect the reality that a double elimination bracket is really only accurate for the top few places (just the top 2 if you want to be scientific about it, but with good seeds you can have high confidence on third place as well).  Remember, there are lots of pools for each game at Evo; the bigger games have hundreds of pools.  So the most important factor is to earn that first point that puts you in the group of players who are seeded.
