I've just heard that at least Ricky Ortiz has not yet been paid by ACTive Gamers, even though they said "Tuesday at the latest" was the date. Does anyone have any additional information?

Yo, this is DancingFighterG. Vextax, see to me unlike all those other people on this list if someone puts me out on blast they better have the evidence to back it up instead of yelling and screaming then all of a sudden moderators, admins, etc cave in. Redemption is the last thing on my mind because there is nothing to redem about. At the end of the day it's all about bettering the community, education and training for leadership. If you know you didn't do anything wrong then I'm going to say something. It may not change anything but I'm not going to simply just say there right and be do with it. If anything I encourage people to read the post and hear the lies and crazy accuations so people can see how people really are. I've learned that the ones that are the loudest is typically the ones that have some type of grudge against a person or simply a hater. Either way I will continue to host events and make them bigger and better despite the list but I would hate for somone or a group of people to be able to just say "This person did some shady stuff, put them on a list and tell people not to go to there events" because that could inevitable hurt a community which in some ways it has hurt the CO scene.
Lastly, if you do something wrong and don't speak for you actions then yes I can see maybe a list could be in order but right now we have situation where we have haters that have been around for a long time or those who simply want to try to make an example of someone put doing a poor job of doing it.

"I heard about the set-up last year, how you set up a guaranteed pot of $500 hundred and intentionally made it so that people believed that the $500 was a bonus pot and not a pot cap. Then you pocketed the extra cash....
Regardless if this is true or not, having people say this about you makes it hard for me to trust you. It lowers your credibility.
I'd went to another tournament the weekend before your last tournament and won it. There were about 5-10 less entrants but I still ended up making more money there than at your tournament, about $160-200 more. I also won a bonus prize as promised.
No disrespect, but I don't trust you. What I don't like is how it looks like everywhere I turn someone is ruining tournaments, mistreating entrants, or just straight up lying to them. These tournaments are for the community, not for the tournament organizers.
If you really intend to run a good tournament then I wish you the best of luck, but as of right now I have no intention of going to your tournament."
It sucks when tournament organizers forget who these events are thrown for...

I think this description can only belong to a shady SBO qualifier
"Though SBO spots will be determined from participants from this tournament, Texas Showdown/Showdown Championships is its own separate event and thus winning does NOT guarantee an SBO spot. Planet Zero SBO spots will be determined by a panel of judges separate from Showdown Championships. Qualifications for being awarded the SBO spots is based on multiple factors including, how well a player performs at Showdown, as well as how well a player conducts themselves during the event and leading up to SBO. A player's behavior is a justifiable reason for disqualification of them or their entire team. You will be held responsible for your words and actions both online and in person"
