There are stream archives of almost ALL fighting game tournaments—usually available through ustream/twitch/justin etc.
Here’s a recent example: http://www.twitch.tv/leveluplive/b/290353679?id=290353679&channel=leveluplive
It a stream archive of the ENTIRE west coast Sin City Tournament—that’s hours and hours of original footage. So why should there be a problem with a similar stream archive for EVO when so many others have them (Relevalations, NCR etc. etc.)?
Another example: CEO was a major tournament also stream by Spooky. I was away that weekend and missed it but I later watched the ENTIRE stream archive at my own leisure—20+ hours of footage.
Why can’t we do this with the evo footage?
