Ok, so this happens to us SRK staff every year, but I think this year was an all time low.
‘Sin City’ themed banners
We had seven of these. Three of them were purchased. That leaves us with four. By the end of tournament, we had ZERO. Good job to whoever stole the remaining four. Idiots. People actually wanted to buy them.
s-kill’s signed Street Fighter poster
This was a huge poster of Udon’s Street Fighter 3 issue cover. Seth had this signed by a lot of players and staff as a charity item for someone back in his state. A CHARITY ITEM. I cannot believe someone just took it without even asking.
I know we had a lot of t-shirts in one of the top boxes in the staff area. It was indeed closed. I look after the 5 on 5 and half the box is gone. W.T.F?! I know we didn’t sell that much. Also, props to the people that randomly came up, took a shirt, and asked, are these for free. W.T.F?!
Ok, this is a personal gripe. I brought my tools to help people fix joysticks. One of those tools was a pretty expensive box cutter made in Japan. I left it by the TV when I ran the MvC2 bracket. I came back and it was gone. I didn’t even get to say goodbye when I took the brackets to the staff area. WTH? My screwdrivers went missing, but luckily I found them on the ground under some trash. Sigh.
