That first Marvel pool makes me sick. I talked with Justin Wong during T7 about how the West Coast organizers would put the screws to the East Coast players just like how they ran Justin vs Yipes in the same pool at EVO East. How many pools are there? 16? 8? and you’re telling me that the generally considered 2nd best Marvel player in the world has to be in the same pool as last year’s winner and a two time runner up? Did a blind monkey pick top players out of a hat? Garbage…

omfg des and sanford out??? wow…

Who beat X?

duc to losers by soo

8 IIRC and they were random, and if you think that you guys know who to rig the bracket for so well, check the results, and see if your ready to hand out those seeds again for internet theory fighter…

When you have THAT many big names, a lot of them are going to be put into the same pool.
Everybody was saying Sanford was going to wreck everybody not named Justin or Yipes anyhow, right?

Sure there might be some WC bias, but can you seriously say there are only 8-16 really good players who have a good shot at qualifying? Geez, you act like nobody else had a hard pool. Sanford hasn’t been to any Evo events period prior to this, at least he didn’t have to play like all EC or something.

There will never be a tournament where everybody is happy with brackets or pools. Sanford was “supposed” to go and beat everybody anyhow, right? So why do brackets matter then? Fact is he didn’t qualify, which is a shame but hey that’s how it goes in a tournament. ONE tournament doesn’t prove anything, right? Let Sanford come back next year or whatever and prove this was a fluke, but you are in no place to whine about brackets that you aren’t even a part of.

Sanford’s got nothing to be ashamed about.

Pools were apparently terrible for all games. T5 had a pool with Qudans (top Korean Mishima), Ryan Hart (top European Mishima), Rip (Cali Law), and Mr Naps (Cali Bryan). Qudans and Ryan Hart both coming from overseas don’t make it out.

Last year they had Jinmaster, Ricky Ortiz, and JOP all in the same pool together.

Actually, he’s been preaching a lot of trash talk ‘bout takin’ EVO all the way. Boy he pulled a really bad pool to defend his word.

Maybe he forgot about the best damn Cable ever - ROWTRON

People whining about pools need to ask themselves this- if you don’t beat the guys in your pool, what makes you think playing them after pools would be so much better?
In the end it just goes to show that the #2 spot in Marvel is up for grabs and whoever is hungry enough and consistent enough this weekend is going to take it. Let’s just see if someone besides JWong can take #1 as well.

wait, any reason or story of why Potter forfeited against Yipes?

This is turning out to be one of the greatest EVOs of all time.

I can’t wait for the DVD :slight_smile:

OK right there is a fuck up. Qualifying pools aren’t meant to be a crapshoot. If you put Justin/Duc/Soo/Yipes/Sanford/Row/Potter while you put everyone else in balanced pools, you’re going to end up with the top players crushing each other before they’re supposed to. Why do you think we have rankings in tournaments to begin with? It’s to avoid THIS EXACT SITUATION. Three players who people could easily see legit being top five in the tourney had to face off in pools early. You balance the pools, the best break through and face the best in the end.

hopefully not a year later, j/k

When your system of determining top players is made up on the internet and who’s friends with who instead of with a objective scoring system, it’s useless.

People can be decieved, and again, I think the results are proving that.

A bracket error is when you lose to the #1 and #2 player and get 64th when your the 3rd best player.

Here people are losing to other people that didn’t qualify themselves, losing to people that would have been ranked considerably lower by ‘common knowledge’ systems , it’s not a bracket error, it’s player error at that point IMO.

This is re: marvel, i don’t know enough about the tekken situation to know whether it applies.

Looks like Sanford is cursed. He can’t beat Rowtron.

this is total bullshit… sanford out in the most wrecked bracket of all time.

… how about all you “this is just random… blah blah … penis tastes yummy” srk nutthuggers pick a bracket that would have been bigger bullshit in all of mvc2. and that doesnt mean some 3s or ggxx nerd speculating on past tourney results. take into account not only skill, but region, and the potential for counter teams who just happen to be the main teams of many folks in this completely fucked bracket taking out folks who have 3x more skill than the ones who lost.

… though i was pullin for duc last year due to my preemptive(though hella lucky) vote that he would win… i hope the entire west coast(sans soo for being illmatic) drops the soap and feels yipes’ penis slide through the state of cali one by one for letting crap like this take place on your “neutral”(yeah nevada is so far from cali… pssh) ground.

edit forgot to mention… run this shit in an arcade like anyone with testicles should prefer… see how these results change. over and out.

lol nagata lock ALWAYS takes the 2nd post under every major tourney results thread

i think i’m hearin’ Chunksta beatin’ Yipes just now. Ow for dbycrash.

row :frowning:
