Marn talks about sponsorships in the community, DMG follow up

Marn talks about sponsorships in the community, DMG follow up Martin "Marn" Phan shined a bit of light on a subject that many people have asked about in the fighting game community — details on what sponsorships for players do and don't mean.

Sponsorships are not a universal package, and each company has a different thing they do for the players signed to their name, but still, Marn was with a big team and he shares his own perspective on how things went for him. Here's a grab.

Pros
• Free flights and hotels
• Exposure
• Sense of a family
• Salary (Only for some players)

Cons
• Contracts
• No salary (Most players)
• Stuck within a company.

Ok, it’s like 3:41AM so I can’t think of that many. But to cut it short… You’re not able to be sponsored by a big company like Intel without going through you’re sponsored team first. If someone approached you, gotta go straight to the manager first. And at first, yeah, a person like me can’t just talk to someone high up and expect results so you just have you’re team do it because that’s what you’re there for… Right? But if you just sit down and look at the facts, it’s all nonsense. Teams are sponsored because they promise views, they promise videos, they promise just content for the sponsors to get exposed. If you could do the same, why go through basically a talent agency?

Also, Jason24cf, who helps run Dominion Method Gaming (DMG), one of the biggest sponsorship groups in the fighting game community, responded to Marn's column with his own thoughts on the subject. Here's a snip from that one as well.

I do all in my power to promote him and other players on DMG. Can he do the same? Yes he can, does he want to spend that time and effort that it takes to contact companies and go through countless hours of back and forth talks with no results at the end?

That's up to the individual himself. I'm not saying that PR can do it because I'm sure he can. It's easier for him to focus on his game and know that he has someone who is really looking out for his best interest. Yes sponsors give money to the teams/players for exposure. That's no secret just look at NASCAR. Do sponsors tell you "yes or no"? In my exp I have never come across this.

Just some food for thought for those of you out there thinking about becoming a sponsored player.

Final part of Capcom-Unity's interview with Daigo Umehara

Final part of Capcom-Unity's interview with Daigo Umehara Capcom-Unity put up the third and final part of their interview with Daigo Umehara, covering more fan questions. Here's an except from the piece.

4) Daigo, I have no doubt a lot of respect for you as a person and as a pro-player of street fighter.  My question is. How long does it take for you to adapt to a new fighting game such as street fighter and what do you like most about fighting games? the competitive drive, discovery of combos, tricks and setups, etc?

--Power-Stunna


Daigo: Hmm… it’s hard to say, but maybe about 3 month? What do I like most about fighting games is the fact that anyone can easily pick up and enjoy a match regardless of his or her experience level.

5) Who inspires you when you play in video game tournaments? --Robert

Daigo: I wish I could give you a player's name, but I don't have any specific person in mind when it comes to winning. But the number of players definitely affects my spirit. The more there are, the more exciting it gets, and that’s a part of the reason why EVO is so great.

My father has always been my inspiration in my game playing career. He supported me in whatever I wanted to do and inspired me to do the best and be the best. I am very grateful of both my parent's generosity and warm support.

It’s not all about London as the tour then continues through the cities of Bristol, Edinburgh, Norwich, Brighton and Liverpool.
