The blowout of EVO 2012 information continues with stream details, schedules, and additional event information.
Just like last year's event, EVO 2012 will be running two streams that will be devoted solely to covering the tournament action produced again by Team Sp00ky and iPLAYWINNER, and a third stream covering the panels that EVO introduced last year and bringing back again for this year.
EVO 2012 Stream Details:
You can watch the streams using EVO's custom player which also includes local time and schedule information, various layout options, and live tournament information. The stream will be free in SD, or $12 to watch the stream in 720p which will also allow you to use the stream chat and EVO specific emoticons, and the proceeds going to a very great cause.
