Well, atleast it's better than calling it the Climax edition.

That's what he said.
On 5/26, something that defined a generation shall make its rightful return.  #Toonamisbackbitches.  Prepare yourselves.  Bang.

Well, talking about this new e-sports status, I had curiosity from how the community will respond to this, checking the MLG site, is very important to note that attendance and stream views as an important factor to keep said games on the run, in the better of cases, a 120 tournamente attendance will be a good number for what I think they expect for kof, but don't know if they will make it unless we start to see more sponsored players

Also, the factor that don't know how many stream views are good for mlg

FR hit 171 with the attendance of the West Coast and those who play KOF along with their Main Capcom Game while also being a big tourney in the making for months, having a lot of prep time.

Winter Championships is on the same weekend as a WC Major, NCR, doesn't have any Capcom games in attendance, and we all have a 3 week turnaround from even having KNOWLEDGE of the fact that KOF (and SCV) would even be played.

It's...gonna be tough to hit 120 unless everyone suddenly bails from NCR.

Right, but I wager 129 of the 171 attendees aren't from California or even the West Coast. It might be easier for them to make that trip than what we might really know. Also, it's much easier to travel to Columbus,OH from the East Coast and get a cheap motel than to go to San Francisco or any city surrounding it from East Coast.

I honestly feel it'll pop off, but not from West Coast, let alone California.

It is easier, no doubt about that, but it's still not easy, especially considering the lack of a warning.  People don't like sudden changes to their spending within a month, especially when referring to costs of the level of getting to a Major.  

The lack of time from announcement to tourney is going to be the key here.  If MLG had gotten the contracts done at the same time as MK9, I'd be a lot less worried.

Oddly enough, I wonder how many guys will be thinking right now ''everyone is on NCR, will here I could get some free money''

Considering Mr. KOF is going I would hope no one is thinking that the MLG tourney will be free, and I would assume some good players from EC will show up.

I'm probably the minority opinion, but this thing where we start a new general thread after it reaches 100 pages needs to stop here. I don't see why we need to make new editions all the time. We could just let this thread continue beyond 100 pages. Before, I would have understood the need to make a new edition. Things were changing all the time back then. But now, there aren't any new changes to make to this game anymore, and I really think having made "MLG status" doesn't warrant a new edition.

Just my two cents.
