Even if a lot of people dont want to actually recognize it.
I do consider that Emogear does support the scene. I do believe he’s been unfair sometimes with outsiders, and I agree in most of the things that everyone complains about, but I keep going to PZ tourneys (they’re like 5 hours away from my place), and I keep looking forward to events cause they are fun, not only that, I have talked to Emogear en he is a cool guy. I do believe that unlike some people think, he is not all about the money.
This is just something that cannot go overlooked.
Man, for me traveling 5 hours is a lot, I can’t imagine what would it feel like to travel even more than that to have this shit happen, this is so fucked up.
So I made some phone calls this afternoon after reading this thread.
Here in texas the state is so conservative, therefore, me and a friend (who works in a law firm) are pretty confident that you have legal standing to sue PZ for this kinda shit.
Im pretty sure that Emogear thinks he can get away with it because he signed some sort of contract with tougeki (Im assuming this since he has a spot for himself in the tourney), and the paperwork says he’s gonna send PZ representatives, therefore, as far as Tougeki is concerned, he can do it since these papers (assuming they exist) doesn’t force him to send the winning team.
However, this is not information that he is making available to the players, and that’s ilegal on this state.
Go ahead and get proof of the tourney rules and all that including results and get some valid evidence of how YOU WERE NOT TOLD ABOUT THIS, Im pretty confident that the announcement didn’t say this kinda shit could happen.
You should get the info ASAP in order for you to make sure noone is gonna erase it if they read this. I would send you a PM but I can’t my inbox is screwed up.
This is the only way we can stop this abuse.
Just an opinion
EDIT: I am not saying that this would get you your spot on the team and help you go to tougeki, since it does take some time for these problems to be solved, but since we are talking about a trip to japan, you can at least get good money out of it and make PZ stop this abuse.
