This upcoming Saturday the world's most prestigious fighting game tournament, the Evolution championship series, is taking place once again in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Hey guys! As many of you know (or so I hope anyway) myself, Sorwah (Matt), and Allan Paris have started a podcast series(and also Emperor Cow as time permits because of the crazy time differences). It's more or less to talk about upcoming events, tierlists, characters, etc ,etc.

Gehaktbal is known for winning, he’s known for being the best in Europe, and he’s also known for his incredible Jann Lee and taking Sweet Revenge to his limits. How would he fare at the biggest DOA event of the year, TFC? Me and the decorated European player talk tournaments, love, and his current thoughts on DOA5 Ultimate.

International play is now inevitable to this year’s TFC with the news of Tomoyuki Inui in attendance, and you can help Gehaktbal live his dream by donating to the cause of international play. #SendGehaktbaltoAmerica

Greetings DOA community, and Happy 4th of July, I hope everyone is having a great day and will have a great weekend too.

For the first time, I'd like to ask for your help. I'd like to attend The Fall Classic (TFC) this year. I didn't have the opportunity to attend TFC last year, and was way out of my league to begin with. But I'd like the opportunity to attend this year and make Top 16-Top 8. I have began a fundraiser for a goal of $450.00 for a round trip flight.

I've done a lot for DOA since DOA5 Vanilla. I played a big role in building the Southern California scene along with players like Air Gear and Vincent Rayne. With the good folks of the SOCAL DOA brand,...
