Community EVO 18 Live Entertainment Guide

This weekend is going to be crazy in Las Vegas at EVO 2018 and there are a lot of things going on with both DOA5 and DOA6, so see this post as your guide to the whole event that will be consistently updated. Top 8 DOA5 will be streamed on EVO's Official Event Channel so this is definitely one of the communities biggest opportunities to perform! After The Showdown has concluded there will be a Results Post with the possibility of more announcements from Team NINJA.

If you are curious to learn more about the big players in the Dead or Alive community this DOA Player Profile piece will fill you in from Shoryuken, you can also predict the winner of the Showdown in the forum. The Free Step Dash Cancel Bug will be in use at this event so this could be one of the biggest surprise shows we've ever seen.

The Dead or Alive 6 Mini Tournament will be another exciting event that will likely be after the Top 8 show. Remember you must register at the Team NINJA booth, this isn't something you can do today, but this post will be updated when we know the stream time (including DOA5 pools) and any other information pertaining to it.
