*UPDATE* In an attempt to make me look dumb, the stream schedule went out shortly after I wrote this. You can find the times at this tweet. Looks like the NRS stuff will be on the EVO5 Twitch instead of the Netherrealm one.
Hey, there's a thing happening this week. A big fighting game thing. It's EVO 2018. Not only is Sonic being forced to compete at an event without his fox head, we'll see the best competitors around the world playing to win the title of champion for that year. While the NRS scene is definitely looking a bit smaller this year, that doesn't mean that we don't have a ton of people turning up. And you can see the dealio with that down below!
So most of this won't matter much to those of you not going. The list from EVO's website is a little sparse, but I'm sure it will be updated with the proper times once they work out what will run for how long. One thing we know for certain is that Injustice Top 8 is definitely going down sometime Saturday and we know what order the Sunday games will run in. We'll keep you posted with stream times and whatnot later this week.
What is set in stone (mostly) is the brackets. After some input from the community on the proper seeding for everyone, it seems like the final brackets are locked down over on Smash.GG. If you spot any seeding decisions that seem weird (I know people were confused on Sonic's placement) some decisions were made based on who was competing in multiple games to prevent overlap and delays. Regardless, should be a lot of good matches, you can catch at least 3-4 big names in every pool, and you can never count out the newcomers. Things get going officially on Friday 8AM PST, we'll be seeing you guys on Twitch whenever they decide to let us know when they are starting up the stream.
