MrWizard just announced via SRK that Street Fighter x Tekken at EVO this year will be 2v2 pair play instead of 1v1. This is obviously major news as it adds an entirely new dynamic to the event as competitors will have pick a partner and train up on coordinating tag combos and other co-op specific strategies.
On a less surprising note, they also confirmed that Gems will not be used at EVO this year as well.
How do you feel about this news? Hype for 2v2 or would you rather see players compete on their own?
