I will not discard xiaohai just for the sake of it, at least I think that KOF is one of the fighters where if you had knowledge of the previous system well you can still rip everyone later

At least Bala isn't necesarily and invencible beast, at least and with all the respect, he still has to win against someone who isn't from the USA where the level isn't that good IMO

At least there are tons of unknown players which we hadn't seen at all in Asia and that they could surprise a lot of people here

Like someone said, even though if you followed japanese SSF IV matches you maybe knew fuudo, not everybody would had said that he would have win evolution

EVO, if all the prominents show, will be an interesting display for XIII. BALA with his experience with KOF in-general & XIII specifically, Reynald with KOFXIII as his first (I'm probably wrong on that one), Xiaohai with his KOF series experience, and recently getting into XIII, etc. I might've said BALA's a lock for EVO if it weren't for things like Xiaohai's OCVing Tokido at SS with Billy.

Things like that make me think it's really going to be more a matter of style and skill. I should expect lots of the higher-regarded characters will be played. Lots of teams of EX Iori/Mr. Karate/Benimaru or whatever. My wish would be a relatively unknown come out of nowhere to take everyone by surprise with a lower-tier team of...anyone really.

BALA's got the best chance, but it's still anyone's game, and I love that.

Reynald with KOFXII as his first (I'm probably wrong on that one)

Fixed.

Yeah, I hope to see Xiaohai and Dakou make it to Evo.  There was a list of countries represented at Evo posted earlier on SRK, and noticeably missing are China and Hong Kong....  I also wish someone could sponsor Mad_madkof so he could make it to Evo this year.  With that skill, its kind of a waste to see him just playing casual matches online.

ninja edit:  ask and it shall receive, just confirmed yesterday that Mad_madkof is going to evo after all!

Yeah should've said something here as well, here's how I found out:

http://dreamcancel.com/forum/index.php?topic=7.msg52922#msg52922

Shit's gonna be tight if we get a mess of these guys.
Will be a dream match in and of itself, but still bummed about no Dune/Gosho.

Darn them to heck! Hopefully they'll miraculously make it to some major so at some point.

Okay now that my wish of seeing Mad_madkof at evo has been fulfilled, my wish now is to seeing Dune and Ogosho at evo this year.  I get three wishes right?   ;)

Now that climax is up and running, and there are weekly events in Japan, I hope to see someone relatively unknown surprise us at evo, kind of like what Kusoru did with Umvc3 at final round.

Exactly the same here! Happy with this! I'm sure Mad_Kof will create few surprises, more than expected IMO... HYPE! :)

Also, what about Kyabetsu?! He doesnt play KOF XIII more thant that?! I hardly hear about him on XIII!! :/

IMO, I don't think he would do that well even if he does. I can't remember him winning more than one XIII tourney if that (correct me if wrong).

Heh touts 'randomness' as being his strength - good sense of humor

Don't forget Poongko. Not trying to dick ride but I'm convinced that he's going to make Top 8 at the very least. He has the skill and he has the Yomi magic to do it. Nice to know MAD KOF is making an appearance.
Team: Billy, Clark, Hwa.

If poongko puts in more time in the game, I believe he'll do well.  Unfortunately, right now his priorities seems to be SF4 first, SFxT second, followed by KOF last...  :(

Personally I am rooting for Mr. KOF to win the EVO. I like his style of play.

I think he has to be more aggressive if he wants to win Evo..

sometimes he's a bit to patience..

Among the Americans, I hope Reynald wins it.
