does anyone think this is total bs? These people get to skip the qualifying pools and not have to face the fatigue as everyone else. Not to mention that some of those pools are nothing but the leetest america has to offer. Some decent people could actually be knocked out early if they got into 2 pools with good players in it but I guess thats why they call it a tournament!!! The tension and anxiety alone are enough to make any person tired. Which means someone like wong or sanford could get tired and lose a match on accident and be placed in the losers bracket. I’m not saying that they couldnt make it that far anyway. They easily could. They wont be as tired as the other people who have been playing all day. I just dont think its fair. I think if you play evo there should be no special exceptions. YOU MUST BEAT THE FIELD TO MAKE IT THAT FAR. Not be placed there. WTF people, this is a world wide tournament, and your allowing people to make it to semi’s automatically.
What about the japs\canadians are they going to get the same deal? If the japs got the same deal, theyd take home every fucking penny for 3s and ggxx and HSF2 and anything else they’re godly at. I think there is some really shady shit going on. EVO gets a big sponsor this year and the tourney this year is fucked up.
how are you going to have a world wide tournament BUT only let the americans get the autoplacement?
Thats like telling the a pro sports team they can play in the confernce finals next year w\o going through the playoffs. It just doesnt make any sense and it takes all the competition out the game. Which is the fucking reason we do this thing. Im disgusted by the setup this year unless someone can give me a decent answer to why this has any decent advantage.
for god sakes wong or sanford could rape most people and your telling the rest of us we have to play them fresh when weve been playing all day…stack the odds against us more…
honestly if you call yourself a SF player you cant stand for this shit. We made this community into what it is today. A tournament means everyone starts from the bottom and the best make it to the top. Not put the best at the top and let everyone else battle to get that far. Then the rest has to play the best. WRONG!!! the best make it to the top no matter what. There should be none of this autoplacement crap.
I woudlnt even call this a tourney this year if this is how its going to be.
