For those of you who do not know who I am, allow me a moment to introduce myself…
I am Phil, AKA: Jinsogood and Philth.
I played SF for many years, ive attended evo for the last 5 years, and was once perhaps considered a top player at Cvs2.
Perennial troll, I was a scourge of general discussion for many moons.
My opinion means everything.
Dont question it.
So this year, evo sucked.
Alot had to do with the venue, ghetto ass tropicana, but even the tourny itself…
Whats the deal with registration prices? 50$?
What the fuck is that about?
1st place gets like 1000$ 2nd place 200$?
If trends like this continue next years evo will be held in a Del Taco.
1st place is 2 chicken soft tacos and a medium drink.
2nd place gets a packet of ketchup.
3rd gets a paper towel.
The tournies were over priced, and the players were undercompensated.
The only thing that saved evo from being total shit this year was the people who attended. Its good to see familiar names and faces that have been part of the community… even if the majority of the community didnt attend this year.
Good friends showed up and its cool to just have an opportunity to kick it with em.
Evo was almost an excuse to have a cult following of dorks drool to the screening Bang the Machine.
I think that had more attendance then any of the finals.
Why even throw a tournament? Lets just huddle around a projection screen once a year and circle jerk to the good ole days.
(CEPT FOR CHOI, HE CAN JERK IT TO HOW GOOD HE IS TODAY AND YESTERDAY)
Evo needs to step its game up.
Red Rock and Green Valley were better venues.
Sure you werent super close the strip…
But at least you werent in the ghetto.
Cause thats what the tropicana is. Its the ghetto.
Motel 6 got better shit then the tropicana.
Bigger TVs, better AC, shit they prolly dont charge you 5$ for a glass of OJ in the morning either.
I dont feel comfortable taking shots out of the trunk of my car except when im in the ghetto.
I dont feel comfortable smoking blunts out in the open, except when im in the ghetto.
So its nice that Evo caterd to my needs… since I felt pretty comfortable drinking and smokin in the parking lot next to a 91 civic with its bumper falling off…
BUT GET REAL.
Evo was hurting this year.
