First of all, the live stream was awesome and kept thousands of people including myself thoroughly entertained for the whole weekend. Kudos. :lovin:
But though the live stream was great and lots of fun was to be had in the chat, the way that SRK was down for the bulk of Evo was disappointing. The site was up for about half of Friday, then just the morning of Saturday, and by Sunday I guess the server cried Uncle because SRK was declared to be down until after Evo finishes.
The Evo forums were always a hotspot for discussion/trashtalk/speculation/hype/results/brackets, especially for those of us not able to attend the event in person. Live chat is fun, but it doesn’t give you much message/post history to refer to, and you don’t really hear much about what’s going on in the side tournaments/MMs/etc… The brackets were good when they were up, but by Sunday (or partway through Saturday) they became inaccessible, and even then they didn’t seem to be updated quite frequently enough.
Even if forum activity is limited to the Evo section during Evo time, it’d be great if we could have SRK usable in some form during Evo next year.
