Ok as of the last couple of months or so there have been a trend of conflicting tournaments in the Fighting Game Community. Several Tournaments posted here on SRK have been either blatantly or unblatantly disregarded. This is not a thread to start a flame war or drama, controversy etc. I just think this needs to be adressed to the community.

I posted on another thread the situation with me and Justins confliction of interest but basically to sum it all up me and Justin (at the time) didn?t have the communication that we should have had, and to be brutally honest I had to find ways to attract people to my tournament by adding bonus money. OUT MY OWN POCKET in hopes to get more people to come to my event.
Edit: AND didnt get paid for doint it!!! No sweat though I didnt stress it because its not about the money…I actually care about the community!
Although I did have my tournament announced first Justin for whatever reason decided to hold his tournament on the same day. Of course we?ve sinced talked about it and Justin ended up cancelling his event but pretty much the NYC players had to chose and it was messed up.
Basically this kind of things split up the community and in the end we have to look at the coordinators. Are we here to split up the community? Are we in it for our own personal agenda?
Is it greed, Ego? Or is it about respect and the respect that we should have as a community, not just for our community but ourselves as well and to one another as organizers.
Once again this is not a thread for flaming or thrash talk, were adults and we need to address the issues as such. If we could get some input and answers from the organizers themselves then that would be great! But whats the deal?
