SCV is getting a lot of attention cause is a great game, people stop being so negative cause the game will actually die after EVO if you keep on being so pessimistic.

This game wasn't going to die after EVO.

I'm really excited to see LinkRKC and KineticClash at the Summer Arena. Hasn't been much Ivy play so far with this game, almost reminiscent of what happened with SC4.

Not in US, that's for sure, but look at Europe the only country actively playing SCV is France, but Germany, UK, Poland, Spain, Italy are almost all gone :S

Anyhow, back on topic, I wanna see that Ivy mirror, gonna be epic.

I wonder if MLG is going to add another 3rd game to take KoF's place down the line. I'm guessing TTT2 has a good chance of being added. But I would love to see P4A or even DoA up there.

That's how it was for SC4.

They will, Just have to wait for the game to come out. MLG has a good relationship with Namco.

I wish they'd add Persona 4...but Tekken is pretty much guaranteed and will have a huge following (or should, at least).
