Like you didn’t have enough to worry about already. I know machines and boards come at a premium so this is definitely a tall order. Let’s face it though, 95% of us are average at best and we end up being eliminated early with nothing to do. While the tournament finals are exciting to watch, watching pools A, B and C eliminate all their Blanka and Sagat scrubs is mind-numbing at best. One of the best parts of any tournament is free play against tournament caliber opponents (minus the pressure). This has been a problem at past tournaments and it bugs the hell out of me. This might take some effort from the players themselves (as far as providing hardware). It’s something I feel should be addressed and can be easily overlooked in the planning (correct me if I’m wrong).
