After the past two majors that have passed Seasons Beatings II, (in which my ps3
almost became someone else’s ps3, due to the I see nobody’s name on it so it’s
mine reason) and with recent thefts at NEC, it should come as no surprise that this
is getting a bit ridiculous. We as players should not have to feel like at any moment
and time are shit is about to get jacked the moment we lay our eyes off our
belongings. We as players do not go to tournaments to mean mug everyone who
has somewhat of a sparkle in their eyes when they are near our belongings. Lastly
we do not come to tournaments what so ever to get our belongings taken from
us. We go to tournaments for the love of the game, the love of the challenge, the
love of friendship, the love of defeating new rivals, and many other reasons that
can be expressed by many other players.
We as players bring what we can to help the community grow in whatever which
way it can. whether it is bringing a console, tv, a computer, camera, arcade stick,
etc, all of these items are needed to help our community prosper. However, their
are some people, whom for whatever reason, disrespect all of us who bring their
belongings to help the community by taking that which is not theirs to begin with.
To tell you the truth, this type of shit threatens the community in its entirety,
because every time this shit happens it makes the,community seem like a group
of immature thugs with no values of morals what so ever. This shit also makes
people not want to bring their equipment because of the risk of belongings
ending up in the hands of another asshole.
I for one am tired of seeing this shit happen and, I think something should be
done about it. I believe that We should divise some type of authority to take care
of peoples belongs (some type of bag check-in service) governed by the players.
The tourney organizing body can enlist some trust worthy players to watch over
this area to make sure no one who should not be in there get set straight. Lastly
anyone caught stealing should be punished by the community (no exceptions).
These are my thoughts about the subject at hand. Let us keep the suggestions
going and keep the comments serious. These thefts have got to stop now. Peace
