Listen, it’s now confirmed that I’ll be at EVO and whether it’s official, unofficial, on PS1 or PS2 or on CigarBob’s cabinet or on a laptop or on a Commodore 64, this shit seriously needs to go down!
This shit is the hype and whether or not the newbies like it, this event will be a huge highlight of EVO 2k5. Let’s get some shit straight.
What is the entry fee for those that wish to run the Gauntlet?
What is the entry fee for each of the old school players?
What is the prize if somebody successfully gets through the Gauntlet?
Who are the Old School players going to be, to represent the 17 Street Fighter Characters? (Don’t forget Gouki!)
Who is going to take my picture for the cover of Tips and Tricks Magazine after I win?
Here’s my idea. Let’s get some pre-registrations going for this event. I will be the first to step up and accept this old school challenge, but of course just to keep the drama up, I’m going to go LAST. If you want to participate in this event, POST HERE and I will update this first post with entries. Depending on how much participation we get, we can cap the # of entries for the event. Obviously some consideration is going to be made for players like Justin Wong, the Japanese, etc. who will undoubtedly want to participate but might not pre-register.
ALSO, I leave it to Mike Watson and Shirts and Dream TR and other old schoolers to decide who will represent which character in the gauntlet. Let’s get this shit set in stone so when EVO comes, we don’t have people bitching out. I am coming to EVO and this is one of the major reasons I’m going to be there, if it doesn’t go down that’s just, quite simply put, GAY.
Finally, as the rules are set in stone I will update this first post as well. So lets GOGOGOGOGOGOGO!
