I'm getting tired of the scene.

My local fighting game scene is getting a bit too much for something that was started just right almost 2 years ago. It was a fun way for us to get together for local tourneys and just have fun. Entry fees were low and everyone all-around were having a good time.


Then one of the promoters had BIGGER ideas. After the ego-inflation that happened when a team of 5 went to a bigger city and face their best players, they somehow thought they were invincible. Ready to take on the world! Their brightest idea came just a month ago. "Hey! let's invite these guys from YouTube! Our scene is gonna be big!"

That's all nice and swell, but the scene got boring real quick for people like us who wanted to have fun. 
Gone were the days when spectators can hang out for free... Now its a $20 charge
Gone were the days where entry was $5 for each game you wanted to participate. Now its an extra $10 for each.
You wan't me to spend a third of my weekly paycheck just for me to be "part of the scene"?

and what is the whole reason behind this? 
"Because the big boys do it this way." 
"Because thats how EVO does it"
This is not fucking EVO! This is a desert town!
   
No no, but i know the real reason. You wanted to charge this so you can make back all that money you spent getting "YouTube guys" down here to this little speck of the world in big hopes that the world would notice "the scene".
All of the quote "top local players" were just ready to suck off to the YouTube guys. Taking pictures, inviting them out to eat, all while the YouTube guys quietly laugh at your scene and enjoy some free tacos, courtesy of "the scene."

Now, I've left the scene. I no longer want to be associated with "your scene".

This almost ruined SF4 for me, Marvel, and even the new MK.
Sorry for being so salty, but the minute i quit the scene was when that same "THINK BIG" promoter messaged me, deafly sounding like he knew what he was talking about, saying how i got PlayStation Plus for the Mortal Kombat demo weeks before it came out.
Yeah... No. 
But ya'll know how it is, something that bothered you for so long and this little thing was just enough to make you say it was the last straw.

So, goodbye my local scene. In the end, you got "Too big" for me. If spending my hard earned money to bring YouTube down to our neck of the woods is your idea of "growing".

Count me out.

Techno Syndrome Mortal Kombat Trailer - By DarKaoZ


Hey guys, My cousin (DarKaoZ on YouTube) decided to add the hated/loved "Techno Syndrome" song into the MK trailer not long ago, then I decided it was a good material to upload in the fighting game site we are running.

Here is the link so you guys can see the video, don't know if we can link the video because we uploaded it to our servers:

Hope you guys enjoy it

A simple discussion got locked. What a surprise.


Nah, im gonna be smart and not make this one into a thread. Usually those go to shit and get hijacked or whatever. 
 
My topic was locked, and im not gonna deny it was not for good reason. The discussion was getting a little heated and the mod who closed got his purity a little offended. 
 
Still, no reason to go and delete my post, while mine was a simple harmless post unlike the guy who was calling him out. Then proceeds to lock the topic by calling the guy a douche? 
 
I know Giant Bomb forums are different from other places and the rules might state an ability to name call someon as the topic is being locked. (might have missed it somewhere). 
 
But come on! Show some civility! 
This aint the first time this mod has done something like that.  
But then again, not the first time another mod has done that too.   
 
IF he is reading this for some strange reason... I have a couple of requests. 
1. Stop hijacking my threads. A while ago you deleted my OP and made it your own. It was "Second Ultras" in the SSF4 forum. You did not ask my permission and while i do not know if it was a rule i might have missed giving you the right to do so, but at least as ive said, have some civility. 
 
and... 

2. Don't delete my posts. I know you want to have the last say when you lock a topic and i posted after Jeffsekai (or maybe a couple after) did. Sucks i closed the tab where my post was... i wouldve posted it here somewhere. 
 
Oh well, im getting my hopes up. I'll stay quiet in the mean time. But if it gets to a certian point. I'll be counseling to another. At least he has experience.
