EVO 2012: Results, highlights, and a bittersweet farewell

Some major players were steamrolled, some new champions were crowned, and lots of salt was poured on the ever passionate EVO fans.

For the first time ever, I watched EVO day 3 stream from beginning to end and enjoyed watching every grand final. So much talent on display. It was amazing seeing how much the strategy around these established fighting games have changed since last year. But, above all, it was amazing watching it all unfold with you guys at home, so thanks for joining us in the chat.
