    Before anything else, let's give a big hand to @dekillsage for taking the number one spot for Skullgirls Encore at EVO 2014! He, along with runner-up Swiftfox-Dash, will be walking home with a hefty bundle of fight money and a brand new PS4 for their efforts.

    With 168 competitors, some hailing from as far away as Japan, EVO 2014 was host to some of the most fierce Skullgirls matches you'll ever see. Long-running champions were toppled, new champions arose from the ashes, and new DLC characters Fukua and Big Band were represented admirably in the top 8 mere months after release; it goes without saying that no one could have called this EVO's results without seeing it unfold themselves.


    Due to scheduling issues, only the top 4 finals were streamed live. You can watch those matches here, and when the top 16 is available online I'll post those here as well. Markman gives his sincere apologies to the Skullgirls community for these issues, and will be looking to make it up to you all.


    Even after the dust cleared and Dekillsage took on the title of King of Skullgirls, the good news didn't end; Lab Zero revealed Robo-Fortune's final design and coloration at their EVO 2014 panel! Without further ado...

    If/when the full Skullgirls EVO panel is uploaded, it will be mirrored here for your convenience.


    I'd like to extend my sincere thanks to:
    @render - Tournament organizer, this all wouldn't have happened without him.
    @MarkMan23 - Stream organizer. Despite the issues that occurred (that were out of his control), he was the one who stepped forward in the first place and generously offered stream time for Skullgirls.
    @keninblack, @POS Industries, @mcpeanuts, @Broken Loose - Stream commentators, professional microphone clippers
    @Fizzxwizz, @Inferno - EVO attendees who dutifully kept us updated on brackets while everyone else watched two hours of Tekken.
    @IsaVulpes - Compilied final standings and team compositions, which were used in this news post. Thanks!
    @Kittayyy_221 - Took the picture of Dekillsage and Swiftfox-Dash tearfully accepting their winnings. Thanks!

    And to everyone who attended EVO 2014 - You're the people who make this community what it is. I hope to see each and every one of you attend EVO next year and blow everyone away yet again.

    Okay @dekillsage, here is some motivation. You are the greatest banana bread of all time.

    Jiminy Cricket ma ***! The moon cannot even shine brighter than your glow. Your pigment is

    too latino along with the law books you slap on she hulks *** cheek, Cono! It takes more

    than 10 niggas to kill your cerebella because those hands STILL Slap hoes (its been a

    year). Congratulations. You did it! You deserve this praise for all your hard work now

    send a *** that fortune button you owe and some zots cause I heard from hop's mouth they

    tasted delicious. Pause. I'm not gay.

    since i guess the majority of the community has seemed to missed this detail, I dropped filia ages ago. I play Fukua/Painwheel/Double. I only used my old team once in tournament.

    also biz casual plays team sev, space danny plays something with parasoul and squigly, hojimbo plays fortune/fukua/bella, i think grinta plays filia/bella, and khaos beat hojimbo. medic either plays team sev or parasoul/filia/bella, i kinda forgot myself.
