Had lots of complications? Get the hell out of here with that, the 'complications' were pretty simple. During finals a few players showed up late (Marn barely showing up in time for his match) and there weren't many spectators. For whatever reason most of the GG community didn't get up and go watch Flash and his team get so close to the top. Before you ask, yes I was there and yes I competed. Going again this year, but for SFHD / Brawl.
As for Chloe, yes she does go to Evo and other tournaments. What does her competing have to do with her giving an opinion about the lineup / location? She's right about VF5 having a bigger scene now too, and I would have loved to see it there instead of 3s (garbage game to me).
I'm glad you think just because you go means you know anything. There were LOTS of complications, not just Marn being late. I'm friends with Marneto, I know more about that, what caused it, and the aftermath better than quite a bit of people. I also know much of what else happened as I've known Wizard for about 10 years and we talked about it. SRK threads show some of what happened, but not all of it. As I said... there were lots of complications.
You think 3S is a crap game, the majority of the country disagrees with you. I've missed on Evo since B5 and that was due to personal reasons, I've helped at every Evo, running brackets, errands, or other crap for staff. Miu and I hung out for an entire night with Sirlin. I lived about 10 minutes from Valle, and went to his house all the time for casuals 3S and MvC1. I beat Jason Nelson in A3 tourney, with V-Mika. I've embarassed Viscant in person, and on video more than virtually anyone in the world.
Are we done comparing E-cocks?
As for Chloe. It means quite a lot. As an observer, she doesn't contribute, nor is she an example/representitive of what Evo is for. Her opinion on the lineup is crap to be honest, and she talks A LOT of shit in other places when she's a no one that "plays" the game, isn't a "player" of the game. VF IS getting more reputation, does that mean it's worth having a tournament for? Frankly, there's a bigger fanbase for Melty Blood in the US, that doesn't mean it will have a tournament(for a whole crapload of reasons).
My comment was more on the fact that, she isn't a tournament player, why is she complaining about how the largest US tournament runs itself and the politics behind it when she ISN'T A TOURNEY PLAYER.
Do you really want to compare epeens? I don't get why you think the information you gave means anthing, but I'll give a short rebuttal.
I go to Sirlins house to play against him quite often in Guilty Gear, and other games as well. In fact, he was my team mate last year at Evo. I know and have met most of the Evo staff, but outside of playing Wizard and the Cannons a few times I won't make some grandiose boast of talking to them regularly. Oh by the way, being friends with Marn doesn't actually make you a cool person in case you didn't know.
I along with a few of the Evo staff really dislike 3S, or did you not know that? Just because some people really like something doesn't mean it's actually good (Like a lot of self proclaimed annoying Otaku. The type of guys who dress up like girls, or the people in general who spout out japanese phrases just because they saw it in an anime. This is a different can of worms though). I've played Choi in ST etc etc I'm not even going to go on since I think you get the point.
Now does my opinion magically matter more?
As for Chloe, her opinion of the line up is as valid as anyone elses. Afterall it's her opinion based on what games she as a person likes to both play and watch. So why can't you just accept that instead of trying to wave your ego around like it actually matters? Oh noes you've spent the night playing with Sirlin and Miu! (oh I was able to beat Miu in AC. Uh oh better watch out now!)
Here's a summary for you in case you need one.
