If Smash somehow wins player’s choice…I hope Evo bans NOTHING!!!
Items fucking on.


#3

Melee was top of the poll and wouldn’t surprise me if Nintendo fanboys have the deepest pockets. I’m hoping for Skullgirls to make it through


#4

My money is on melee. There is a huge army of smash players (most of them don’t even play) that want this to happen. It dominated the poll as well.


#5

I think that if Smash gets in we should respect their ruleset.
The thread about donating for melee at Smashboards became 10 pages in just a couple of hours.
There’s some people who don’t seem to trust the EVO staff at all, however, it’s always nice to see a community come together for a common goal, so I’ll respect them more if they actually pull this off.


#6

I think it will all come down to the most dedicated and numerous fan/player base.

With that in mind, I think Melee is a good fighting game.


#7

Whichever company wants their game in the most.


#8

I’m rooting for Guilty Gear. :smiley:


#9

No one thinks MLP has a chance? You guys seem to be underestimating the power of 4chan and the Bronies.


#10

Catherine.


#11

The one that has more casual fans…
So, Smash
or
MLP


#12

I want this game to win.

Thank you![/details][/details]


#13

I do and I’m scared. Both already know of it. Also, Bronies apparently are avid donators. Ponder tweeted that MLP is leading.


#14

The mods at Smashboards closed the thread about donations for Brawl.
Not sure what to think of it.


#15

This is also ludicrous if you can’t see how much has actually been donated.

One faction can believe they have a chance if wizard says they are in second when the highest one is like 30000 ahead or something. Its fishy.


#16

when do they decide who’s the winner?
nevermind, I found it
end of January in case anyone was curious


#17

Is there a donation cap? If not then I can see some will scummy shit going down in the same way like the Indie humble bundles. Someone in Smashboards brought up a good point about this donation drive being a great tax write off for companies. I can see WB or Sony donating to get their games in if that’s the case


#18

They could also say Guilty Gear or whatever won even though it only got $10 and MLP was leading by $100K. So there’s that.


#19

but then again, some people could get discouraged to donate for their games if they consider they dont have a chance at winning.


#20

that MLP game is not even at a playable build (according to Smashboards) how the hell could it feasibly have a tourney for it.
