EVO picking up Brawl and Melee for 09

I was wondering if EVO would be able to pick up Melee and brawl next year in there line up? I think it would be a good move on EVO's part if they picked up both because they would get more respect from the community because they decided to reconize both games take skill and shouldn't be unrated.

    There are a lot of new fighting games coming out next year, I highly doubt that Melee will be added. Brawl might, but I dunno... with the way the community is huffing and puffing who knows. At least things have been more civil lately, and we seem to have come to some kind of agreement in the counterpick thread.

    ...more civil lately...

    Its been like a whole day without drama. A new record perhaps?

    And, even though I'm huge into Smash, I don't think EVO should (or would) pick up both Smash games in a single year, especially with all the new stuff happening (didn't arcana heart get released in America recently?).

    The only fighting game I play is Smash and even I don't think they should. There are plenty of other games that deserve a spot over Melee considering Brawl is already in the lineup. Guilty Gear has no representation this year. Virtua Fighter has no representation this year. Both those franchises deserve a look before Melee.

    Well... it'd be kind of cool if SWF boycotted because then I would win by default. I'll see you punks there ;P

    YESSSS.

    And BlazBlue. Dear God BlazBlue.

    Oh and SC4 if that shit doesn't suck. There's too many games coming out. If evo goes bad this year for smash which it's looking like it might, I dunno if we'll see it again. There's a lot of other stuff deserving of a spot.

    Coming from the SC community I, along with every SC fan hopes the same. and if it is good(it isn't gonna be great, I honestly do not see that), I'll be a rarity here on SRK's Smash Section.

    seriously, how many people on these forums live under rocks? Brawl was added over a month ago.

    Or how about we just do Melee instead? Probably too much to ask since Evo seems to pick up the newer games. I would think Evo would only have room for one Smash game. No matter how much Melee at the moment seems to be a better game than Brawl, I don't think they would replace Brawl nor do I think they would put that up instead of some other fighters that deserve a spot.

    I had totally thought this was talking about EVO 2009 ^_^''

    EDIT: Ooo, my rep has gone down by 50,000 points from saying that Smash is a fighting game in a thread in the FGD. Thats hilarious :rofl:

    That's nothing against Smash. I got negged for saying I liked King of Fighters Neowave in FGD. And for saying that DOA4 isn't a bad game. Pretty much if you walk in and say anything except "ST/MVC2 is/are (a) good game(s)" ...odds are you're going to get negged.

    To be honest I think if evo picked up melee and brawl for next year it would have a great out come and would defenitly be worth the time. If EVO has melee alone just for next year it will probably get a good outcome because it would probably be the biggest tourney for melee since brawl came out.

    No...no...Assuming a seventh game is added (and the six on the list remain the same), then the best games to add, in order, would be SF4, Guilty Gear AC (assuming a new one hasn't come out), then VF5, then KOFXII (assuming it comes out in America by then and doesn't suck), then KOFXI, then Garou: MOTW, then TTT, then DOA4, then KOF2k2/98/Neowave, then SF Alpha 3, then SF Alpha 2, then Sengoku Basara X/Melty Blood: Whatever/Blazblue/Arcana Hearts/whatever other anime fighter, then doubling up on T5 and T6, then Soul Calibur 4, then Bleach: Blade of Fate for the DS and THEN Melee.

    So yeah. Melee and Brawl at Evo? Fuck that.

    I've been in this community long enough that everybody plays pretty much all Capcom games and the smash community pretty much has a bigger scene then most of those games listed and melee if kept by the traditional rules would attract alot of attention and get a good outcome for next year's EVO. Brawl I understand that it's a new game and people want to keep an open mind but we will see what happens with Brawl at this years EVO.

    Oh, you're right. Here I thought SRK was somehow affiliated with Evo, so the Smash community was worth considering in...not nothing.
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    I pray to god that brawl gets replaced with another fighter for 09 EVO. Yes, SWF and all major smash communities have in fact boycotted EVO. Let the smash communities run smash and let EVO run the other fighters. No problems.

    If Mr.Wizard was actually inclined to make brawl competitive he wouldn't have used those homo rules, thus close to none of the competitive scene will be there.. UNLESS they are already going for SF or other games.

    Correction: Nobody is boycotting, and both AZ and I have dissuaded people from doing so.
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    Whoever said nobody is boycotting? If that's the only way to get things done around here, than so be it.

    If EVO wants to ignore the entire competitive Smash community, then why would they expect us to come to their tournaments and play by their rules?
  • SamuraiPanda001SamuraiPanda001 Joined: Posts: 175
    Thats called free market. If you want to go, go. If you don't, then don't. But it isn't called boycotting if you don't go.
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    Well that was my point.

    The fact of the matter is that eventually the Brawl circuit for EVO will turn into one of several things:

    1) A giant n00bfest filled with item-users and scrubs.

    2) Professial Smash players will still attend and dominate / place high in rankings, but it won't be very fun.

    3) Not enough people go, and EVO is forced to drop Brawl.

    I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that there are oodles of other things my money and time could be spent on. Things that don't involve good players losing to nobodies because of a lucky Final Smash or an exploding crate.
  • CeirnianCeirnian Legendary Prosecutor Joined: Posts: 350
    Good thing exploding crates are turned off, and you can directly influence whether or not someone both hits with or even gets a final smash!

    You also forgot #2

    2) Lots of people join and have fun. The top people still place roughly where they are expected to.

    Your #2 is the same as my #2. Obviously, "fun" is subjective, but if you were to ask top players today whether or not they thought playing Brawl with the EVO ruleset is fun, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who would think so.

    you've never played with the Evo item set, I can tell that right now. there's a lot more I could say, but that was the most important thing I wanted to get out.
