I read the front page and saw that Mr.SNK got a lot of heat for his performance at sbo qualifiers.
One of his responses was:
Lol Ill challenge anyone in here to play me at evo. Stay behind your pc’s kids.
The thing is this is very egotistical sounding and rude. This is not how you’re supposed to act with your community. Where’s the humility?
I think the only thing players fail to realize is something very, very simple. People on forums aren’t fellow players, they’re just losers behind computers. Challenging people that watch more street fighter than play it wouldn’t work. Trying to get these people to relate to players’ tournament experiences won’t work either, because the spectator will understand nothing beyond the justin.tv chat. There must be some other way that established players can interact with street fighter fanboys that doesn’t involve engaging them directly? Perhaps a more politically correct response is required? I don’t know so please help me brainstorm so we can have a more efficient way for anonymous asshats to interact with community heads.
