well, I’ve got a little community now that plays 3s on arcade, but it wasn’t my doing. I never actually play 3s on ps2 unless its training mode, but for some reason it always felt wonky to me. I’m getting some ggpo people to come to it as well. As long as this arcade is around then there’s no point for me to play games I don’t like.
random noob’s opinion
My opinion with EVO is that its an insult to hardcore 3s players because most people who will enter who are big names will do it for money, and will all be out of practice, and there will be some sloppy play from top players. EVO also doesn’t have a good format for the game as well so its hard to be excited when you have a top 8 which is a snorefest for most of the audience.
Plus from what I can tell the denjin regulars don’t even attend EVO cuz it’s run on console. So, how can we hope for 3s to be exciting if the best players, and only people who take it seriously won’t show up? I think that’s really important.
I will never attend SBO cuz I started this game in march of 2009, but I still appreciate SBO over EVO.
