    As we already knew from a prior announcement, this year's EVO tournament has been cancelled, and is being replaced by an online-only tourney. Now the organizers behind the event have offered more details, such as the dates and games lineup to be featured. EVO 2020 will take place over five weekends throughout July and August, with the first tournament taking place on July 4th and 5th.
    • July 4/5
    • July 11/12
    • July 18/19
    • July 25/26
    • July 31-August 2
    The full game lineup was also shown--which includes the following:
    • Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r]
    • Dragon Ball FighterZ
    • Granblue Fantasy: Versus
    • Samurai Shodown
    • SoulCalibur VI
    • Tekken 7
    • Street Fighter V: Championship Edition
    Notably, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was cut from the list of games, due to unreliable online netcode. Another game that was previously scheduled, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 was also removed. There will also be four different tournaments that will be open to the public, allowing fans to also partake in EVO, with a lineup of Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, Skullgirls 2nd Encore, and Them's Fightin' Herds. Registration information will be given at a later date.

    I'm sure it wasn't as hype or as truly legit as this:

    Ouch, this is brutal.

    Hopefully Nintendo will listen... Which I honestly doubt they will.

    Nintendo is still like 5 years in the past with online multiplayer, is anybody really shocked it got dropped from an online-only tourny?

    Twas inevitable. Nintendo say they're working on improvements to their online service, but they were never going to be ready in time for this regardless. Oh well, I never really watch EVO anyway, just some of the replays on Youtube occasionally.

    Still can't believe they cut Smash for a My Little Pony fangame. As a Smash player and a pegasister, this is hilarious.

    Did you not read the OP or watch the video? They cut Smash for Them's Fightin' Herds.

    TFH is some legit fighting game. Simple enough for anyone to play, but difficult to master.

    yeah- people are going crazy about it on twitter
    I'm just sitting back here laughing in hysterics- first nintendo's releasing the new "paper mario" travesty of a game, and now their flagship fighting game that is literally the highest selling fighting game of all time has been cut from evo- for a game that started off development as a fucking MLP fighting game. nintendo's really droppin the ball here

    I would say something snarky, like "Nice goin' Nintendo!", but they probably perfer it this way.

    Games had dedicated online servers back in 2003 so them not having them is completely unacceptable

    Seems like a desperate move born out of neccessity for something with reliable netcode, as much as I like TFH for what it is - the game is kinda on a gimmicky side in my eyes, especially with currently small roster of characters.
