      august 10. in like flynn. unfortunately the raleigh event is the same weekend as summer jam :/. oh well fighting games are a side game for now. cant really complain if you're in the same show as starcraft 2.

      I think its cool that apparently SCV is still a thing after EVO.

      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.

      Fight Arena 2!!
      Wonder who winning this one...?
    5. Azazel
      U again? XD
    6. Malice
      This game wasn't going to die after EVO.

      Want to see the Ivy players do well, always a pleasure to watch Link play.
    8. Malice
      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.
    12. Dragkonias
      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.
    13. KineticClash
      Let's just hope it's not the very first round, haha.
    14. Malice
      That's how it was for SC4.
    15. Sora
      We can set it up as a GF event lol.

      Seriously though, you two play such different Ivy's. I'm really excited on how it'll play out.

      They will, Just have to wait for the game to come out. MLG has a good relationship with Namco.
    18. LP
      I wish they'd add Persona 4...but Tekken is pretty much guaranteed and will have a huge following (or should, at least).
    19. SCPartisan
      Hopefully I'll actually be able to make this one!
