EVO 2013 standings

I am surprised I am the one posting this considering that Megas is our news reporter.
Quote:
Now that the Evo 2013 8th game donation drive is nearly a week old, weíve decided to share the game standings. Remember, the community that raises the most money will get their game as the 8th and final game at Evo 2013. 100% of the money collected will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The donation drive ends Jan 29.
Current Donation Drive Top 10 Standings, 1/13/2013
MLP, Fighting is Magic: $3,519.50
Super Smash Bros. Melee: $1,404.32
Skullgirls: $814.22
Guilty Gear XX, Accent Core Plus : $767.90
Soul Calibur V: $387.41
Divekick: $343.95
Dead or Alive 5: $202.69
Blazblue: $200.00
Virtua Fighter 5: $191.00
Super Smash Bros. Brawl: $155.00
MLP, Fighting Is Magic Rule Change
MLP, Fighting is Magic is in a unique situation. The game has no official release date, and itís not clear if the game will be ready in time for players to get up to speed in time for Evo 2013. For the Mane6 team, this contest represents and artificial deadline. We donít want to put any undo pressure on them to release anything but their best effort when itís ready. So, after talking to the Mane6 guys, weíve decided to handle FiM slightly differently.
First, FiM will be back in a big way at the Evo 2013 Indie Gaming Showcase (spoiler, the Indie Gaming Showcase from Evo 2012 returns in 2013!). This year we will have multiple setups so a lot more players will get a crack at the game. This is 100% happening regardless of the results of the donation drive, and weíre happy to have the game back for a second year.
Next, weíre removing FiM from the running for the 8th Evo game. If FiM finishes with the most money donated, we will take the game with the second highest donations as the 8th Evo game. But, should FiM win the donation drive, Evo will sponsor an exhibition tournament and run it out of the Indie Gaming Showcase. The top 8 players from the exhibition will fight it out on stage and stream, like previous Evo exhibitions.
One more thing. As you can see, so far the FiM guys are kicking everyone elseís tails (Iím sure thereís a pony pun in there somewhere). So letís make things a little more interesting. Evo will provide a $1000 bonus to the first place game. If a game manages to take down FiM and come out on top of the donation drive, Evo will spike the tournament pot for $1000. If FiM wins, the $1000 will go towards prizes for their exhibition.
TLDR
If FiM wins, 2nd place game is the Evo 8th game
If FiM wins, we ALSO run a FiM exhibition
$1000 to the pot of the donation driveís 1st place game.
Thatís it for now. Weíll update the standings every week until Jan 29th. Good luck to all the game communities, and thanks for supporting a great cause!
Thoughts on this?
Personally, being a brony, I am really excited...

@Konata & @Nintuendo
EVO is a video game fighting worldtournament where they use one game for the whole tournament. They choose the game based on donations to each. Above is the leader board up to now on the 2013 tourney and the winner up to now is a my llittle pony game that it isn't even finished :P

Yeah, they've been making it since like, late 2011. I remember some game blog highlighted it. Probably Kotaku. Damn Gawker.
