i wouldn't really call it EVO giving doa a chance lol, they did a long time ago and it didn't go so well. This is the community mainly Nyyko and Cj putting it together.
I'l throw $10 into the pot for a reg fee but like I said, I prolly wont get time to play. Friday is an all day thing with street fighter. Working a full 8 hours :(

So the EVO pool schedule's have been released. You can view them here: http://evo2014.s3.amazonaws.com/brackets/index.html

Street Fighter, Tekken, Injustice, and Smash pools will be on Friday.
Marvel, King of Fighters, Killer Instinct, and BlazBlue will be on Saturday along with the rest of the Smash pools.

I know that @Tenren is running Street Fighter pools on Friday and wouldn't be able to make it unless it's on Saturday. Charlie Tuna, another DOA player, said he'd join but only on Saturday since that is when he's arriving. Another player also hit me up and said that he and friend are willing to support DOA if the side tourney is held on Saturday. Also, I know that @SonicFox5000 and I think his brother Kwiggles play Injustice which is being held on Friday too so they might not be able to make the Friday side tourney for DOA due to pool schedules.

That's about 6 potential more DOA players that can enter the tourney if we hold it on Saturday. I'm trying to weigh out options to see which day would give us the most numbers.

If we do end up changing the side tourney Saturday would there be any objections?

Please let me know what you all think. Also, if you are attending EVO and have not posted in this please do so!

its the same issue both days for me. Im fine with either day. Had no plans to win, just wanted to show support. Its hard to get the time to play in a full tournament at EVO while working. Its a nut house. Either way I going to try and play but you still will get me fee!!

Hey guys, I am playing Tekken and I am sponsoring a Tekken player, an Injustice player, and a Street Fighter player at Evo. All of those happen to be on Friday so I am booked up that day.

Saturday would be completely free for me though.
