this thread is something my friend wanted me to post, he can’t make threads yet
Since I don’t have money to my name, I could not go to EVO. Thankfully, by the graciousness of the srk staff, the streaming of the matches happened, and even those that were not there could feel the tension and electricity that was going down this past weekend.
During some parts of this past weekend, I wasn’t at home, but at a place with wifi, watching it on my laptop. My friends, who do not play street fighter AT ALL, saw me, thought I was crazy for watching a streamed tournament and thought nothing of it. Then they heard s-kill with the expert commentary. They saw the top level play. They heard the crowds in the background. They got caught up…in the hype.
We’ve heard people like djWheat or Gootecks spout stuff about spectating. But after this past weekend, it works. It gains interest. People who just didn’t know, now do. Better for the community, no?
Did any of you guys have moments like this?
