One of the hypest EVOs ever
Smash is honestly the only fighting game I play because I suck too badly at more traditional ones, and the differences in mechanics means I can do ok in Smash where I'm utterly terrible at stuff like Street Fighter or Dragon Ball FighterZi have to be honest, i suck in fighting games, never play them and overall not interested, so i never watched EVO before...BUT MAN a friend of mine make me watch this smash ultimate final and i was instalnty hooked, i jumped, screamed like this was a soccer game, cheered that mexican guy, THAT COMEBACK OMG, that was amazing, i really enjoyed it, so much talented players...now i cant wait for next EVO
Brawl was played with items on at EVO when it debuted. Some random kid who was visiting Vegas was in grands.
Smash 4 with 3 stocks would've been fine with many matchups, but there were a few characters that tended to drag games out to time a lot even at 2 stocks, and with 3 stocks I feel like any match with those characters would be very liable to end in time which would be problematic
Two Stocks were also standard on For Glory so it made it easier for players to adapt and people didn't let go even when it was clear S4 was volatile af
Smashcon is next week. Will have more best of 5 sets.
You're in luck cause literally next week is the next big Smash S tier tourney: Super Smash Con
I think DBFZ has a good chance to be dropped.Before I go to bed I want to say great tournament top to bottom.
As for 2020, I don't see any major changes to the lineup, mainly given that we are inching towards the end of the generation.
Street Fighter V
Mortal Kombat 11
Soul Calibur VI
Blazblue Cross Tag Battle (I only hesitate just in case Guilty Gear releases early next year, but with 2.0 coming out in November this should stick around for at least one more year)
Under Night in Birth
We will probably see at most two changes to the lineup. KOF XV doesn't have a release window so unless someone pulls a Mortal Kombat (announces in December, releases in April) there won't be a new game in the field. Any changes would have to come with already released games.
Either way goodnight my friends and game on! Maybe this time I will dedicate myself to getting better at Street Fighter
for smash, not really.
GG won't be out, but Granblue Fantasy will be. Soul Calibur and BBtag are the most likely games to get dropped for it.
Next version of Under Night is coming next year too. My bet is MK11.
NRS puts big support in every year, plus there will be an MK movie either that just came out or or will be coming out. MK 11 has only been out since April. SoulCalibur will be there too, I would happily put money on it. Bandai/Namco puts interest into it plus we will have Season 2 in full swing. SamSho will be bigger than ever especially with things happening like Justin dropping out of Street Fighter mid weekend to put effort to SamSho as well we multiple EVO champs in the mix. Anime games will take the hit. There is no way that there would be DBZ/UN/Granblue/BBxTag all on the official stack. Just my opinion of course but I feel safe with it.
Why does every keep saying granblue is simple? What does simple mean anymorePersonally, I think Granblue has a LOT to prove before being declared EVO worthy, pretty graphics alone don't cut it. So far the game is looking a bit too simple to remain interesting in the long term.
And yes, I'm aware that simplicity is also Samurai Shodown's bread and butter, but when done in that incredibly tense way, it leads to a very interesting game (good showing this year, shame about the sea of Genjuros, but balancing patches can fix that issue). Granblue, so far, feels like a much simpler Guilty Gear with less interesting characters.
Of course, the game isn't done yet, so all of that could change. I personally would love to eat some delicious crow for being wrong here, but so far I'm not convinced.
MK is absolutely a guarantee. As is DBZ.
