Daigo “The Beast” Umehara will be coming to EVO APAC! His objective is simple: to win one of 2 flights to Las Vegas to compete in Super Street Fighter IV at EVO 2010.
Registration for EVO APAC closes on 26th of May. Be sure to register before the deadline for your chance to compete with one of the greatest Street Fighter players of all time! “He’ll be ready. Will you be?”
After the Farewell SF4 tournament at Manhattan Superbowl on 10/04/2010, Humanbomb and Genxa started a new thread for match analysis on the Grand Finals of the Team Tournament.
This is often a highly overlooked aspect of improving your game. You can see how a match unfolds, any execution or decision making mistakes that both players make. Essentially you will be looking to see what mistakes you are making and how you can stop them in the future. Here’s a quick list of stuff to look out for (after the jump).
The EVO APAC website is now live! This website contains all the information competitors and spectators need to know concerning the EVO APAC tournament, taking place at UTS, Sydney on the weekend of 29th-30th of May, 2010.
The site includes a section documenting the OzHadou APAC qualifier series of tournaments, and complete rules for the EVO APAC event. If you’ll be competing at EVO APAC, be sure to read the rules, as these are a little different to what’s typically used at Australian tournaments.
Remember that the winner of the SSF4 tournament receives a paid flight to Las Vegas, USA to compete at EVO 2010. Just like EVO in the US, all competitors for EVO APAC MUST register online before the event. Make sure you register to avoid missing out!
