As we were covering all the major Esport tournaments of this past week end, one of our favorite event proved to be both a huge success, and a huge headache to cover. With its thousands of registered players and dozens of tournaments, EVO 2015 was a monster event.

In the end, we saw a lot of partial results scattered all over the web, between the vods, the official schedule and the community sites.

Following thorough researches, we gathered the Top 64 results for the Ultra Street Fighter IV tournament, with detailed scores and characters – when we could get them.

[Organizers] All the available Placement methods

Since our last article on Placement methods and options, Toornament has refined its available options and here’s a complete guide to the placement methods.



Placement is the way each phase of a tournament is linked to each, how the participants move from one to another.

Generic methods :

  • “Random” : as the name states, participants are randomly placed into a phase, regardless of their seed.
  • “Manual” : you choose to place your participants the way you prefer. Note that you can combine Random and Manual placement methods.

Specific method :

Those methods follow a specific set of logic and rules

  • “Participant Number” : only available for a first phase, as the participants are placed following their initial seed number.
  • “Previous stage” : only available from a previous phase. The only logic is that the results from the previous phase build the seeding for the following one. The played matches doesn’t weigh on the placement.
  • “Bracket Optimized” : only available following “Groups”, or “Bracket Groups” phases. This method adds a new rule : qualified participants from a group are placed in the bracket so that they’ll meet again at the latest stage possible. This method aims for a better variety in matchups.
