I just wanted to issue specific congratulations to TeamSpooky and IPlayWinner for an excellent experience this weekend, especially Sunday, where you exceeded 70,000 viewers for MvC3, 80,000 viewers for SF4:AE, and over 1.1 million viewers for the day. You all should be very proud of your accomplishments.
I also want to praise the professionalism of all of the announcers, especially UltraDavid, James Chen, and Seth Killian. Now I’m sure that many would then reply that they had an American/Poongko bias, but it’s very hard to remain unbiased when the crowd goes absolutely crazy for winning moments from those players. I even think that Gus Johnson (more popular sportscaster with the young people for those not in the know) gets more biased for the home team than the visiting team, so it’s very hard for me to criticize any announcer for that.
I’m very confident that we’re one step closer to putting these matches on live national TV somewhere. I’ll look forward to that day with great hype.
Once again, congratulations and thank you for streaming this tournament. I look forward to watching more streams from the fighting game community real soon. (I also hope to get personally involved soon as well, even though I really stink up the joint with these games. )
