I have no experience running tournaments however I’m willing to learn, get in contact with Mr.Wiz, Cannon bros, and whoever else has authority over EVO, and just do whatever it takes to make it happen but I can’t do it alone. I need the commitment of the community to make Wiz see the mistake he made. Even if SF2 never gets on the EVO lineup ever again we can make it a place to play SF2 and decide who’s the best while having fun.
EVO’s lineup doesn’t decide the fate of the SF2 scene.
If anyone else with experience running tourneys wants to do this then let me know but until then I’m going to try to get it off the ground just so I know I’m doing something to support the scene. There’s no way I’m going to EVO without playing SF2.
I’ve been to Cigarbob’s ST tourney in EVVO09 which was canceled halfway into it because SF4 regionals was starting soon and EVO10’s side ST tourney which was moved into the hallway because Bang The Machine was being shown. So first thing’s first I’m going to talk to whoever runs EVO and make sure there aren’t any time conflicts. The timing of everything else going on at EVO will decide whether the ST and HDR tourneys will be the usual double elimination 2/3 or single elimination 3/5 set
If anyone is willing to help get this happening post your ideas and show Mr.Wizard that the SF2 scene is alive. Remember a signature thread for a new Darkstalkers game got Ono’s attention if SRK can do that then we can certainly just use our collective voice and presence to keep the scene going for as long as possible.
Any help or opinion is appreciated even something as simple as a link to a good bracket maker is better then keeping quiet.
