Here we go again w/ some more bullshit from GJ!
UrbanYeti, I understand that GJ is their own business & since they are their own business, they’ll do what they think is best 4 the business. That’s cool.
However, what’s not cool is how you guys setup ur fighting game tournies. It’s ridiculous! Here’s what is standard for fighting game tournies & take some notes on it, b/c GJ needs them…Badly!
Standard pot winnings: 70/20/10 for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd places.
Standard Entry fee: Standard is usually $5 or $10, depending on the venue.
What boggles my mind about GJ is how you guys just love 2 fuck over the fighting game community. What is so difficult about about having a standard entry fee & going w/ the standard pot winnings 4 the games?
GJ’s argument is that you’ve had no complaints about other tournaments 4 other games. Guess what, those are OTHER TOURNAMENTS 4 OTHER GAMES!!! Just because what works 4 one thing doesn’t mean that’ll it’ll work 4 another. It’s like trying 2 put out a fire w/ water on a campfire & on an electrical appliance. What works 4 one doesn’t mean it works for the other!
True, maybe ur Halo tournies & Gears of War tournies don’t give a shit about how you do things. Fighting game tournies “DO” give a shit about how you run things, especially when you rape ppl out of money.
Popoblo put it clear as day in Post #11 on how messing w/ the entry fee & taking out money from the prize winnings fucks over the top placers terribly.
$140 - $98 = $42. Wow!!! If I was Chickenfat, I’d be absolutely fuckin livid @ you guys. From ur “standard” ways of running tournies, you “standardly” fucked him over bad in his prize earnings.
He essentially lost out on $42, & in fact, he essentially is paying for everyone’s venue fee. Damn, that’s some messed up shit right there, & you wonder why GJ didn’t get as good of a turnout on some games as you guys thought you should of. It’s bullshit like that which deters ppl from going 2 ur fighting game tournies in the 1st place.
You said it best UrbanYeti: “We respect all the grassroots gamers who hold tournaments in their houses and rented venues, but GJ is a business and if you disagree with the fact that we don’t want to run tournaments for free, then I suppose you shouldn’t come to our tournaments.”
As well, “WE WON’T” go 2 ur tournies. If you did have respect, you would hear us (the gamers) out, instead of pretending like you care, while in essense, you can give a shit less about our advice on how 2 run a fighting game tourney properly. If you did respect & care for the fighting game community, then you would run the tournies properly like you should, but since you don’t care, since you won’t listen 2 us, ur gonna keep on dicking ppl over & keep on getting shity attendance in ur tournies.
If you guys need money, just charge a $10 entry fee ur venue, do not do any pre-reg discount bullshit, & keep the pot-winnings 70/20/10, both you & the gamers will be cool w/ that. $10 entry fee is a lil high, but if you DO need that money, do that instead of fucking over the top placers in the games by taking away money from them. That’s just dumb.
Until you “actually” hear us out & do things right, have fun not making hardly any money & having shitty turn-outs for ur fighting game tournies. Peace. :china:
