Many of you may have heard the name TomBrady thanks to his recent work in MK9 stream commentary and community building.  Seemingly out of no-where, Tom went on a profanity laced rant about some of the players in the Dead or Alive community.  Obviously this prompted a lot of question from the community.  What the beef with DOA Tom?

To fully explain the situation, Tom has uploaded a 7-part series summarizing most of the history of the DOA tournament scene from his perspective.  It’s a really interesting story about how politics, ego, and money can undermine a tournament scene.

Parts 1 – 4 talk about the establishment of the offline DOA scene.  If you want to skip to the real controversy, start with part 5.
