Neidel Crisan, aka Haunts, has been one of the driving forces behind the IPLAYWINNER machine in the areas of live streaming. IPW has been responsible for the broadcasts for weeklies, regional events, major tournaments and more, including the Southtown Arcade ranbats, the NorCal Regionals series, the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary tournament series and Evolution 2011 and 2012. According to a post on NeoGAF from Haunts himself, he will be stepping back from streaming for an unspecified amount of time, possibly forever:
I’ll be posting up Aftershock details today on IPW.
This will most likely be my last broadcast on IPW for quite sometime — maybe forever — so hope you enjoy it. I’ll be passing the torch to Harrison who handles the Starbase Streams and the past few Southtown streams.
Aftershock is an upcoming NorCal-vs.-SoCal event that will take place this Saturday, September 15 at UC Santa Barbara.
