Evo 2014 winners crowned

Ultra Street Fighter 4 finalist breaks records

History was made as the Evo 2K14 fighting tournament concluded on Sunday in Las Vegas, with the final winner breaking several new records.

Olivier Hay, going by the online handle Louffy, triumphed at Ultra Street Fighter 4 with Rose, who is considered one of the most underused characters in the line of Street Fighter 4 games.

Louffy's win makes Rose the first female character used to win a championship in the SF4 series, as well as making him the first European to win the tournament. He is also the first player to win the championship with a game pad.


Marking a dramatic resurgence, Louffy was initially beaten into the losers bracket, though clawed his way into the final eight after a string of comeback victories. In the final he fought against Bonchan's Sagat - widely believed to be one of the world's best with that character.

A video of his final can be found below.

Meanwhile, one of the most recognised fighting game pro tournament players, Justin Wong, recorded his seventh Evolution singles championship after a last-gasp win against Filipino Champ. This is the first time Wong has won gold since 2010.

In the Super Smash Bros Melee tournament, Mango picked up the trophy for the second year in a row, making him one of few players to win back-to-back singles championships in a game.

Nearly 2,000 competitors competed at Evo across three days. The tournament, which began in 1996, consistently had more than 100,000 viewers across its Twitch channels.

Below is the list of finalists.
