A friend and I where talking about what to give for prizes in a tournament above and beyond just cash. We got to talking about trophies, boxing belts and EVO.
First off I have never been to EVO, they could already be doing this or be giving something better. (Plan to change that this year.)
Away the idea is for the winner of each game to receive a head band.
Boxing has belts, Poker has bracelets and Fighting games get head bands.
I think it would help make fighting games more like a sport and identify the great players to everyone, hardcore and casual alike.
Just an idea.
