    Is there a tournament going on this weekend at LP? I've been so busy on the weekends lately so I don't know if I can play but I wouldn't mind stopping by for a lil bit to see whats up and maybe see a few matches.

    New SRK is crazy. Feels faster, too.

    So what's everyone been playing? I suddenly feel like playing some CvS2.

    I would like to hear the opinions and thoughts of everyones take on "pot splitting" in the competitive community as it stands now. I want to argue about it.
  • furixfurix Joined: Posts: 1,524
    Argue? Personally I don't care if someone splits the pot if they are good friends. It happens often where 2 players that play each other a lot end up in finals, if that happens, then sure, split the pot. They managed to beat everyone, so they should be able to do whatever with their prize money, right?

  • DanEGDanEG like water Joined: Posts: 337
    I meant argue in a good way. Guess I should have said debate. I agree with you, Furix. I don't feel that the "integrity" of the game or community is effected what so ever in a situation like that. It isn't the NBA or NFL where one persons actions effect 50-100 people that are directly involved with the team, it is a pure individual sport with pretty much no sponsors. Player's invest their own time, energy and money to get to and from these events, the money awarded is theirs to do with what they wish when earned. If all players were sponsored, they would be obligated to play out the matches to their sponsors. But EG appears to be the biggest sponsor and fine with splitting thus far. I feel like the whole perspective being applied to the SRK and Smash scenes with the card system comes from the longing for mainstream acceptance and corporate assistance. Then another issue comes up if that is really "best" for the community. [MLG has huge sponsors and their top 16 teams are under contract to compete only in MLG sanctioned events. Team America has to send 17th ranked MoB into the WCG because 1-16 were ineligible due to contracts. They lost to Canada...Halo 2 s tuff. That is the best for the community?! Like I said, a whole other subject.]

    The main argument is from a pot-monster stance [the masses opinion is not always the logical one] where by their traveling to a major event and paying money to enter gives them the ability to say "We deserve high level final matches and players shouldn't sandbag." The mentality is that they deserve something when I don't believe they really do. Do I deserve to get past second round in tournament? Fuck no, I suck and I got what I put into the game. There are better solutions than making arbitrary rulings over the subjectivity of sandbagging. Although we might see it, it is impossible to prove unless the player admits to it.

    This is really only a portion of my thoughts but I need to do some yardwork lol. Thanks for responding Furix.
  • Demon JimDemon Jim I'm Cereal Joined: Posts: 4,158 mod
    I don't mind a chop but I prefer to see a winner. That's just how I've always been with that. I think it really only matters in big tournaments because that is when the big money and sponsors come into play. Also when it gets down to the final few players the person who is not involved with the split of the money can get screwed.

    It's happened many times before in the past big tournaments with someone throwing matches in big tournaments it's not anything new it's been around since the beginning of time. It was either Evo2k2 or 2k3 when Seattle was a an MvC2 power house and I can't remember if it was Kuan or Row but supposedly one of them lost on purpose so that the other player could advance further because that player who won had a better chance of beating the next opponent. Accusations were also pointed out many times to Empire Arcadia in the past when one of their players would lose to a person who they usually beat so that person who lost would clean up shop in the endings of the loser bracket so empire can place more people in the money. The most well known one was an an older Midwest Championships. Justin Wong had lost against I wanna say it was Ricky Ortiz in a semi final match (forgot the game) and the loser of that match played against someone who was very capable of beating the remaining members of Empire and of course JWong cleaned up shop and Empire took top 3 money places.

    Again it depends on the calibur of the tournament. That shit wouldn't fly at EVO now but nobody would care if it was a local tournament.

    The majority of us do. Just a hand few of people from each city don't but it should be very easy to find games for MvC3.

    The next time you have to fight some guy in WoW for some really rare item or gold or w/e... Think about it, by letting him have it, you might save the guy from getting physically beat up...!

    im off saturday, ill be at the lan center all day since theres a melee tourney, but if anyone stops by ill be more then happy to play mvc3 :) also dan, pot splitting is fine imo but unless ur tight on time i think you should play just for the fans, they may not be entitled to high level matches per say, but as someone who wins there fair share of tourneys i think it helps the lower level players learn alot as well as the top 2 players thanking the rest of the entrants for making there pot bigger =)

    If this event/tournament is going to be held at the McAllen Convention Center, then I think it would be wise if someone post this event or ad on the newspaper since it's going to be held at a big venue!! Posting an ad on the monitor will no doubt bring larger audiences and spectators to this event.
