MLG and EVO/FGC worked together before, didn’t work.
Some Tekken players blame MLG for the damage done after MLG dropped it (the MLG money was gone, no felt like attending/traveling anymore)
Smash worked for MLG and they prospered but as seen at APEX, FGC and Smash Community are like mixing oil and water.
MK has been a FGC game, I don’t see how this will end better than Tekken and Tekken is the most popular fighting game in the world, no debate.
Not trying to stomp on your optimism or anything, just skeptical.
I’m curious as to why Namco would gamble on MLG again assuming they get SCV. I’ma have to agree with Jebailey, congrats to MLG/MK9 players and hope it works well but if you work directly with the FGC, you get more for less.
