Dead or Alive 4 results, offline tournaments, past 6 months:
Texas Showdown: 5 players
Final Round: CANCELLED
ECCXI: After being HIGHLY advertised and promoted on the DOA Central website, and even having some of the moderators and heads of that community like Tom Brady attend: 15 players.
After the tournament, Tom Brady posted on DOA central basically talking shit to his own community, telling them that the offline tournament community would be FINISHED soon since nobody wants to get off of their asses and play in a tournament, but instead sit at home and play casuals over Xbox Live all day and talk shit about it. He got so pissed that he might start exclusively playing Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 because the game will be released for Live soon and that’s also one of his primary games.
Now, compare to the results of Super Turbo in the past 6 months:
Texas Showdown: I can’t find the results but it was definitely in the range of 20-30 players
Final Round 9: 34 entrants
ECCXI: 30 players
See a pattern here?
Even though Hyper Street Fighter AE is a different game than ST, because ST is NOT in the official lineup for either qualifiers or EVO nationals, ALL the old-school players will be playing this game.
Yet, DOA4 has prizes 4 times the size of Hyper SF.
Prizes need to be changed, theres nothing at all to justify DOA4 getting the money. It’s that simple. Thank you.
