iplaywinner.com on blast over blaming Justin.TV

#1 Posted by Jeffsekai (7042 posts) -

So like most of us realized during sunday, all the technical problems was IPW's fault not JTV's.

I think this blog post is a nice piece of humble pie from IPW, in the chat who ever was on the account (haunts or rodgerdoger(?)) was pretty much saying fuck Justin.TV and was obviously very mad. Good to see they are admitting their mistake and are probably going to stay with Justin.TV 
 
So what did you guys think of the way IPW was handling the whole situation on Saturday night, and now this post?

They did what they could with the shitty internet they had.  Shit happened and there was nothing they could do about it.  Stream monsters need to shut the fuck up and they should ban those fuckers from the chat.  If you are being a little cry tit about not being able to watch it, go to the event yourself.  I was a little pissed, but there was nothing they could have done.

Yea shit happens, I was more unimpressed with the way they handled it. Oh well, glad to see they did the right thing here. I love IPW streams  so this makes me like them more.

Streams are free, people need to stop bitching.  As far as IPW is concerned, I guess they just got too hype but hopefully next time technical shit goes down they'll approach it in a calmer manner.  Good on them for manning up in the end.

Well the internet was super good on the surface, so I can see why they figured it wasn't on their end. Regardless, it's a non-issue. The stream managed to be MEGA-HYPE even with the hiccups.

Someone said on stream at one point that the upload speed was great but that it disconnected every 30 - 60 minutes.

Ah, I was wondering what happened with that final match. I'm glad they explained it, rather than just saying "well, the stream sucked." I agree with the OP, good move on IPW's part here.

Im not sure theres anything they can do, assuming they have everything on their end setup properly. 
 
I turned on the stream right around the end of the final match to hear the announcer whining about stream monsters. That I can do without. Just dont pay attention to them or kick them out. Trolls feed on attention

I missed almost the entirety of the SSF4 matches at the tail-end (just gave up due to the stream pausing after about 20 minutes), but still good to see this come from them.  Had minimal issues with the MvC2 match at least, which was a damn nice set of fights.
