They are the abbreviations for the teams they play for. E. G. is Evil Geniuses and the other one I forgot.

They are sponsored teams. They pay players to win, flight, hotel..ect. To play video games, thats not too bad eh?

Edit: Theres one specific sponsor thats actually scouting out players for MK. Just a heads up ;)

How can I get on these teams???

If you're a good competitive player, all you need to do is get recognized. Attend tournaments and start wining. Team Hori just took in 2 or maybe 3 players. Its not as easy as you think, these sponsors are throwing money at you to win tournaments.

So if you're good, attend tournaments, make a name and then get recognized.

I was able to take out OneHandedTerror last night here in vegas. OneHandedTerror is the products manager for PDP. And a SF tournament player.

Very nice, let me know if you need any help to improve your game. Make sure youre 110% ready for PDP, there will be big names there. Check out the links on my sig for starters.

Just some things to check off, make sure you're ready with
-Spacing
-BnB's executed at 100%
-Situational strategy (Corners, mid screen, full screen positioning)
-Character specific match ups against your main.
-Character specific strengths and weaknesses
-Anti Air moves, preferably something other than an uppercut.
-Block strings
-Setups, mixups and/or resets (character specific)

Plenty more but should be a start.
