The recent EVO 2014 was a huge success as gamers swarmed the entire battlefield of fighting games, and more fighting games. There are lots of games on the menu but Ultra Street Fighter 4 made its way to victory with almost 2000 player signups during the registration.
According to the Shoryuken reports, 1979 people signed up for Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament at EVO 2014, beating Marvel VS Capcom 3 at 1014 signups. For the record, that is the largest tournament competition so far at EVO 2014. Super Smash Bros. Melee came in third with a number of 970 signups following closely to Marvel VS Capcom 3.
Street Fighter is one of the classics of beat up, tournament fighting games. We would not be surprised if they took the top spot on EVO 2014. However, with Super Smash Bros. Melee closing in to Marvel VS Capcom 3, that is quite surprising. They almost took the spot for number 2 with just a couple of players more. Some commentators think that Marvel VS Capcom?s reputation might be going down or?Super Smash Bros. Melee is going up. Some think both are happening but we really do not know. We will just let the fans decide on that matter.
Anyway, after the big three was released, BlazBlue: Cronophantasma took the forth place as the airdasher community seems to have the numbers these days. The next games in the roster are Killer Instinct, King of Fighters 3, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
Here is the list of signups during the event:
- Ultra Street Fighter IV ? 1979
- Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 ? 1014
- Super Smash Bros. Melee ? 970
