I know there was a big hubbub about allowing items in the rule set and that there was a big backlash, but what was the exact nature of the backlash? threats? boycotts?
In addition to this, was it true that the Smash community forced CPU (the winner of the smash tourney that year) to give everything he won to Ken(his opponent)? and that because of this EVO stopped hosting the game? I heard that this was true but google isn’t giving me any results when I try to search for it.
