    I just thought people might like to know, but as far as the “tentative” schedule Haunts said on stream they’ll only be there for about 4 hours. I don’t know if that just means the stream itself or the whole tournament for today. As far as what games, Haunts also said the entire Marvel tournament will be played on his stream. I asked Bifu in chat and he said he is streaming these: MK and KoF today. Inj; TTT2, and Persona exhibition tomorrow.

    • Rennikz

      …. ttt2 is on the capcom stream but persona… i’m still waiting but nothing yet and no one would answer me to let me know wtf is going on

  • Unemployment Master

    I clicked play and a ChrisG match was just starting.
    #KreyGasm
    WTF, against Perfect Legend?!

  • BlackMasamune

    So, SRK has never acknowledged VXG for almost a year, and then a post goes up the day of the tournament? I don’t get it.

    • pressstart

      They saw how big of a disaster it was, so why the hell not? 😛

      • BlackMasamune

        Yep, SRK really cares about the community.

    • Marvin Choi

      It’s because VXG is one gigantic joke.

  • Ugh I missed it

  • Marvin Choi

    Wow, this tournament is hot garbage.

    • Marvin Choi
      • BlackMasamune

        I’m sure you have similar lists of issues with all the other tournaments that happened this year, because there is no way this could just be biased hatred for VXG.

      • Art Salmons

        Add in the hour-long wait when a projector broke, and 5-10 minutes in between EVERY match Friday morning, with the time being spent listening to some dork in a Doom costume who had no idea what he was talking about.

      • Kay

        Also the Smash Tourney got cancelled. The Smashers apparently didn’t read the fine print in the long list of terms and conditions and not enough players joined, so the pot was cancelled. Quoted from commenter:

        and anyone else who’s saying it’s the players’ fault because they didn’t read the rules: I can’t blame them, because I read the rules and I couldn’t find anything.

        There’s no rule sheet for Melee at all.

        There’s nothing about a minimum number of players needed for a pot bonus on the rule sheet for Brawl or any other game.

        There’s nothing mentioned on their registration page about minimum numbers needed, and there’s no way to register for Melee at all through the website.

        Their FAQ page lists pot bonuses for all of the games (including $3k for Melee) but does not mention a minimum needed for pot bonuses. In fact, the only time they talk about prize money is the second listing for “Explain the couples package?” which is supposed to be the answer for “What are the “guaranteed” payouts for top 16 for Injustice and MK9?” That answer is:

        “Guaranteed payouts is the fixed prize the St. Maarten Tourism Board has sponsored towards the prize payout. This means that THE PRIZE IS NOT BASED ON THE NUMBER OF ENTRANTS, AND RATHER IS FIXED.” (emphasis is mine) There is NOTHING on the page that states that any of the other games are to the contrary.

        • Louis Lam

          Nobody in the Melee community even knew that Melee was there until they heard the the 3K pot got canceled. There was no advertising/videos/tournament listing on Smashboards and I could’ve sworn that I read somewhere that Brawl was going to be the Smash game there.

        • Marvin Choi

          🙁

    • TrueBlueStories

      haha why so much hate ? why all these organized attacks on vxg. find something better to do with your time kid. your not even ther at vxg, your a fraud and none of the things that your complaining about impacts your life in any way. go and gag on mr wizards dick cuz thats what it looks like your doing

      • Marvin Choi

        I’m complaining because the stream was horseshit because the tournament was horseshit.

        • TrueBlueStories

          the EVO stream was bad too no ? idk i was actually at EVO so i wouldnt know but thats the word that went around.

          • Marvin Choi

            The EVO stream was very professionally run.

    • Marvin Choi
      • TrueBlueStories

        so what does that prove ? not much really. if you have a problem with the stream, then just simply go to the event yourself. dont go off what other people are saying, how do you know if its even true ? oh because its on the internet haha. okay believe it all

        • Marvin Choi

          It’s hilarious is what it is.

  • TrueBlueStories

    Daaamn i wish i would have went to VxG insted, EVO was major ass this year. waaaste of money it was =[ hype it was, but had nothing to offer during the tournament for spectators trying to get casuals in

    • Marvin Choi

      • TrueBlueStories

        yeeah my wizard (mc rib himself) knows how to hustle people for their money. that fat baboon dont care about this scene. its all about the $$$ for him. or mc ribs idk
