RawGamePlay interviews Empire Arcadia's TriForce

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • August 5, 2010 at 2:29 p.m. PDT
RawGamePlay.com caught up with TriForce, who runs Empire Arcadia, at the King of Chinatown premiere in New York. They discuss the documentary, Justin Wong leaving the organization and other topics that have had the community talking.

There are two clips which run about 15 minutes each, and if these subjects interest you, it's definitely worth checking this out.

Also, thanks to RandomPlayer who pointed these clips out as well.

Then Yipes follows up: "Thank you haters" *Smiles*

complete joke of a human being. he's like the pied piper for gullible, stupid people. i can't begin to fathom how naive someone has to be to get involved with triforce. it's more of a cult than a gaming organization.

everything aside. EA does get kind of shafted as far as credit earned. EG got a lot of shout outs at EVO and Empire has done way more in the community, including building the EG superstars.

@6 It's pretty clear you've never been a part of a gaming organization. And, you more than likely live with your mom.

#11
stubbs said on August 5, 2010 at 3:51 p.m.

I imagine it's because EG is a professional gaming organization that SRK doesn't have a problem associating with.

You can see ''Triforce'' is talking bullsh-t when begins about 'America is the land of the free'-crap :P.

And the stuff about 'a real man and live on your own' made me laugh.
You got full grown men (heck triforce got the pimp-style goin on) talking seriously about playing games and how they're gonna dominate other groups etc.

I guess nerds come in all sizes and shapes.

The only normal guy seemed to be the interviewer.

No offense to the people who look up to these guys tho.

doublef said on August 5, 2010 at 4:03 p.m.

1 mistake Empire is making is assuming that MVC2 skills will automatically translate to MVC3 skills. It's a completely new fighting engine. Who knows what kind of talent will rise up. I mean, look at the old great Super Turbo players: Choi, Valle, Afrolegends, Cole, Watson, etc. Are any of those guys "dominating" the SSF4 scene now? Not really. Online play, internet forums and match videos have changed things. Gone are the days where the same 5 - 10 players dominate a game. Over the next year you're gonna see all kinds of talent pop up out of nowhere. Just look at HD Remix, 2 of the best players in the nation are DGV and SnakeEyes simply because of XBL and PSN. If Empire thinks they can just rely on Sanford and Yipes to continue dominating in the long-term, they got another thing coming.

Also.. what exactly is the purpose of Empire as an organization? It's not a team, it's not a sponsor, it's not even a business really. It just seems to be a group of guys living in 1 house together and paying the bills with tournament winnings. Being a gamer for a living might sound cool at first, but it's a pretty bad life plan in the long run. You're not making any real money if it has to go towards bills every month. Not to mention the lack of health and dental insurance. And i highly doubt that Triforce matches any 401K contributions for his employees.

@#13

No matter what, people do have dreams and aspirations. Some people do want to be pro gamers, and that is their own right. Has nothing to do with being a "grown man" or not. It doesnt even have anything to do with being a nerd, its just what a person wants to do with their lives. And thats no offence to your oppinion, but I just felt i needed to say that.

As far as the vid goes, it was awsome. I wish to see more stuff like this in the future. its so funny that i was watching a vid over a year ago with sanford, marn, jwong and other ep members jokeing around, and now their is beef in the organiztion between them.

I think stuff like this *although may seem overly nerdish to some people* gives a extreamly indept look at the gameing community in general and how deep it realy gets. Its evolved from just dudes spending all day at the arcades or playing games at your moms house. Its a full blown buisness in most scence of the word.

I really want to see the movie. They actually made me really want to see it.

I reason why I like the EMP is because at least for the moment it seems that they have some actual soul to them. You love or hate how they operate and you can't deny they have done there part for the community.

As gaming gets more popular and becomes more about monetary value, It's gonna lose its soul. EG got way too much shine at EVO, granted they have 3 great players, but I cant help but feel they bought there way into the scene. Stuff like that is going to keep happening, alot of good players in the future are gonna get caught in some contract that is bad for them. The business world is about to prey on alot of 15-22 year olds.

#17
Firegod said on August 5, 2010 at 4:12 p.m.

@#14

To your question of what is the purpose of Empire, i belive that triforce answered that question.

The purpose of Empire is to be part of a organiztion to get your name out there and get endorcements and contracts with other companies.

I belive he even said something along the lines of when they do get contracts, how they can help to market the player so the player can get their worth.

From what I gathered by the interview, the point is to be associated with players who play games seriously, for you to live under the same roof as them, play with them, learn from them, they help you get to tournements to get your name out there, and then hopefully you make it big.

I belive the problem in Jwong and others leaveing the orginaztion is the WAY they are leaving it.

Just like working at a real job, you can eather resign, or you can no call no show and then talk trash about the company.

One is being respectfull of the oportunity a job gave you, and the other is just pissing all over them because you think you are better than they are.

I cant figure out Triforce. I don't know the guy personally, but I do know that he was probably the quickest add and remove on facebook I'll ever have. I add him, I then tag him in a screenshot for an animated cartoon I am making which has him in it. I've been working all summer on it, and I think everyone here will like it when it comes out. He called the shot stupid, flat out, and then removes me from friends. I had a similar experience with another person in the shot (but no f'ing way am I stopping the production...). I don't know if its because he's just a very serious guy and he doesn't see the humor in parody, or because he's just a douche, and doesn't like getting ripped on, even in the most minor sense. Though he can speak well, I'm sort of leaning toward the latter. The interviewer mentioned a comment Triforce made about Justin Wong "Betraying" them. When Triforce let out that muttered "yes", that made me feel that he was taking things way too seriously, and was just adding unnecessary drama. Also, If I'm not mistaken, isn't it also Triforce who said that in this country "only a fool works a 9 to 5"?

Does anyone know anything more about Triforce as a person? Because I feel like I'm in the dark, only making assumptions based on what I've seen from him. Do you think the fact that my movie has Justin Wong in it upset him, and that's what provoked the response he gave when I first pitched the shot to him?

ThinkJurgen said on August 5, 2010 at 5:03 p.m.

I would feel betrayed too if I had a group, recruited someone with potential, trained them, then became one of my star players and then they left me. No matter how you put it, it sucks. It seems as if Empire Arcadia gives good players a chances to get better and get their name out there. But the down fall is that other companies hear these names and want to recruit just the best. So it depends on the player. Business and Money or Family and Loyalty. The two always seem to collide.

#24
Tru1yOdd said on August 5, 2010 at 5:18 p.m.

Man sad to say but I think EMP is gonna be done in the near future.

With EG picking up all these players the flood gates have been open and soon many other teams are gonna start picking up more and more players. Alot of the players have seen what they can get by bing sponsored by a big team and thats what everyone is looking for now. Being flown around the world to play video games and maybe even be getting a salary, who would pass that up.

TriForce looks like a smart man so he must know that whatever EMP dose or is doing, is not working. He should just go the way of EG and just make EMP and official e-sports team. He has the players and it looks like he can get sponsors too, the smart thing to do is make an actual team and begin actually paying players.

EMP has done alot for the community but if things dont change there gonna be gone in a couple of years when Fighting Games get really big like Quake, CS, and Starcraft.

@13

I agree, it's pretty geeky in my honest opinion. If I didn't know any better I'd think these guys were cocky musicians or athletes, but quickly realize they are video game players.

I remember one video on youtube where this one guy was talking so much smack and trying to act so hard and the main punchlines was how his Shoryuken was going to always connect. I don't know why I had the strong urge to back hand him, but to each their own I guess.

As for these guys, I remember seeing another video where 'tri force' asked Sanford to get up when he didn't want to and when Sanford asked why he replied"because i said so". Sanford then got up without saying a word, whats up with that, does 'tri force' beat them? lol

I rarely drop this word anymore because I believe it is immature and distasteful, but man, they're gay.

jesuslovessatan said on August 5, 2010 at 6:27 p.m.

i must say that this interview is depressing. triforce aside, the other guys sticking wit EA are like the musicians on titanic. the fighting game community getting bigger is a double edged sword. all the guys putting all they have on the line to contribute to the community are going to get raped by massive corps in terms of getting real talent, exposure and aknowledgement. the scene is growing stupid fast but to fast 4 "mom and pop" groups to keep up.

JWong couldve showed love but money talks and i dont know how triforce actually is outside an interview.

DaigosKryptonite said on August 5, 2010 at 6:36 p.m.

that whole thing is fabricated bs written by milena. dont tell me you believe that a ceo of a growing company would do some crazy stuff like this.....

@34
emp is like a family.... if there were rumors going around about your siblings you would defend them right?

now for my actual comment.....

i went to see the movie and i have to say it was intresting on how it delved into how justin rose to the top with empires help, and it also answered all lingering questions that haters would have. it is advised that you request this movie be shown near you go to kingofchinatown.com and request it in your city/town... this movie opened my eyes to how crazy the fighting game community is. and also it tells the average non emp member how empire works! so yeah request the movie near you so you can see it and all your questions will be answered.

Bushinryu19 said on August 5, 2010 at 8:37 p.m.

At the ends of the day if your raised on the east side you should repersent from the side you were raised.
fair enough justin left EA to do his own thing but you cant go to a tournament and start mocking the side that raised you by representing for the west! thats disrespectful

im saying this from a neutral stand ponit, because im from the uk more specifically the ghetto parts of east london and i think you should always respect your origins regardlees what happens, thats all nothing more! but i give mad respect to those players for providing entertainment to the video game community, keep doing your thing!

PhinnyCupcakes said on August 5, 2010 at 8:42 p.m.

VegaBisonAbel said on August 5, 2010 at 9:12 p.m.

emp arcadia is banking way too much on MVC3. i'm not sure that Mvc3 will take over ssf4. I think ssf4 have such a chokehold on the fighting game scene, that it'll be hard for mvc3 to even take 25% of that.

liukangstoupee said on August 5, 2010 at 9:36 p.m.

i look at this two ways... Triforce has done plenty of good for the people around him. That being said, there are some serious flaws regarding his personal character. It's cool that he built a team of players and helped them develop their talent, but he seems to think he has some personal entitlement to what people, organizations, and sponsors actually owe him. I can bet the reason why nobody gives Triforce or Empire Arcadia their due is how they handle themselves in public. On the surface they seem like they only care about their team and their community. But as a collective whole they have help built and preserved the fighting community.

Now I dunno what type of contracts he has with guys like Jwong, Marn, and Ricky Ortiz. If they were proper legal documentation stating specifically how they are to represent their team, the specified time period they represent them, the money commitments that they owe for the upkeep of the Arc and Empire Arcadia as a whole, then it would be a lot easier to direct blame/betrayal.

I really don't care about these pro teams and what not, and frankly the world will revolve if Empire Arcadia dissolves or EG dissolves, etc. I like to see how this drama will unfold in future tournaments. As far as Justin Wong is concerned, he has to rely on his new sponsors and his own business savy to further his cause. He is the most prominent member of that team, but I know that it wasn't his own talent that got him to the big stage. The success of Empire Arcadia and Justin Wong were a part of their collective partnerships. I have a feeling both teams will not benefit from this fallout.

@54 You are spot on.

They should just let Justin do his thing if they don't care for him leaving. They don't have to mention him at all if they are moving forward and beyond.

In all realness, these are people's lives, even if they are based on gaming. It would be sad if this sparked into actual violence.

#57
jok3rfrmbk said on August 5, 2010 at 11:03 p.m.

@ cagebreaker

He was referring to jwong making top 8 in next yrs evo in mvc 3. He also makes a good point saying that all the talent in east coast is bunched up..all the talent in the west coast is scattered across the state of california. In order to be good you need good competition to learn from your flaws. And be scattered isn't going to help. Since the east coast is bunched up the top players can get better together.

#58
RandomPlayer said on August 5, 2010 at 11:16 p.m.

Lol people reading the conversation between Triforce and the girl Mileena need to know the story behind it. It's not like Triforce just did that to some random girl.

Apparently Mileena has been trolling Triforce and saying lots of offensive stuff. She was even calling people in Empire Arcadia the N word. Triforce, Sanford Kelly etc. She called all of them N!gger$ and trolled them to the point where Triforce made this conversation in response to all those trolls.

Check this video. Shows Mileena trolling Triforce on Facebook. This is Triforce side of the story.

@58 Which was an obvious slight at him not making top 8 this year. Um did EMP make top 8 in SSFIV? Did EMP win MVC2?

Sure its nice, having talent bunched up in one place, but tell that to all the top players on the West Coast.

@64

Lol I wasn't defending Triforce. I'm NEUTRAL and I take no sides in this beef between Triforce/Mileena. I was just presenting Triforce's side of the story (You gotta know both sides of the story in order to make a fair judgment). And yes I agree no one wants to be talked to that way.

Also there could be other truths/details to this story that we all don't know about. Dstyles said (#40) that the whole conversation on that webpage was fabricated by Mileena. Just another one of her trolls maybe. That could either be a possibility or complete bs.

I actually have no idea whether it was Triforce/Mileena who wrote that conversation and I have no solid proof for either side. However I do know that Mileena did troll Triforce as shown in that video (or that could have been fabricated by Triforce). In my opinion, we still don't know enough to make a good enough judgment. Just let them resolve it themselves.

conchuatz said on August 6, 2010 at 2:21 a.m.

I think Triforce and some of the boys had abit of fun with her, since she was trolling.

the flow of that conversation was inconsistent.

its either Triforce and the boys were intentionally fckin around or she has resentments for admiring him and being rejected.

These boys game with each other, tight. Over a white girl? it doesnt sound likely...To me seems like they were playing with her.

It maybe true, but if you a boy with your boys, you know you toy with girls, especially a chick whos insulting you.

To triforce, they seem like they are a brotherhood and shared a passion for gaming, maybe the brotherhood got too serious that it confined Justin Wong to consider money to be the deciding factor.

After all Justin wasnt getting any younger, hes chinese, hes playing games all day, a professional gamer, i highly think hes chinese parents would approve him doing this, they would shadow kick hes arse faster than hes own rufus dive kick for not following a proper career and future.

He had to leave emp, because hes parents wanting boarding.

Simple.

@60 yeah and how many members represented emp at this years evo? Only 3 , yipes, sanford and floe. And jwong and ricky ortiz trained and got their names up through emp. And no emp did not win mvc 2. But over the years who was dominant in the game? Yipes, sanford kelly , and jwong. And once again without emp jwong won't be godlike. These guys level up 2gether. And you can hate on emp all you want. These guys are beast when it comes to games.

I didn't read the conversation or watch the video, but i think most people have had their a*$hole moments and would not like to be judged solely on it. Those without sin throw the first stone.

@70 How many members represented EG at EVO? Three? How many players represented Mike Ross at Evo? How many members represented Henry Cen at Evo? Such a stupid excuse. Thats the thing, you said he won't be godlike without EMP and EMP made him, well he's been on the WC for awhile now and it didn't seem to affect him winning MVC2 yet the Rhaassan talking about how "East Coast is better" and Justin is training with "inferior players", well in the end it didn't affect his MVC2 skills. You act like EMP created Jwong, Justin was great before EMP, during EMP, and probably after it. EMP didn't make anyone. Just because theres correlation doesn't mean causation.

EMP deserves the hate they get. Why do you think a lot of EC non-EMP oldschool players have a problem with EMP as an organization. Look at the thread on SRK with the comment made by auto-demon they were referring to in the vid. Only these newschool players come in and start dickriding cause they see streams of top players. Lets face if MVC2 is all they got, they really don't have anything.

The thing is they (EMP and Trifarce) act like they created the scene, the dude even said he created the Chinatown scene. BF'ingS. Thats the problem with the organization. Correction thats the problem with Triforce, he acts like he created the players. No one needs him. Dude talks about doing so much for the players, what exactly has he done besides giving them a rundown apartment in the bad part of Brooklyn.

Triforce is a beast for answering all those questions like a noble :D

As for the Triforce/Mileena thing, Its hard to believe he could have said all that

I can belive that. He seems really fake.

Man, all this drama brings me back to the mid 90's! Is Justin Wong the Tupac Shakur of the gaming world or something. What the eff?

Yet all 3 eg members trained threw emp..and your sayin how many members represented mike ross? Henry chen? Are you serious? Mike ross is a organization now? You dnt magically become great at a game. Competition is what makes you great. You push yourself to be better than the next person. Btw who was talkin about mike ross and henry chen? Ummm west coast fan boy much? Idk why you brought them up. Lmao

this is just stupid, I really wish eventhubs would not put crap like this on their site, it kinda brings down the greatness that EH is.

The conversation between Mileena may or may not be fabricated but its those pictures that are the most damaging. I'm guessing a lot of people didn't see them. Be thankful you missed them.

nice little drama between triforce & milenna. as they say...''hell hath no fury like a womans' scourn''. whether its fake or not is yet to be truly determined. all i know is i gots some entertainment. EC vs WC oh my...so 90s. just hope it wont lead to violence. that's the last thing we need to hear.

SSJ3X said on August 7, 2010 at 7:31 p.m.

Ahh... this comment section is more enticing than the interview itself, especially with the whole TriForce/Mileena debacle.

I mean ok, I know sometimes if you're accused of something you want to spread your innocence to others, but the way TriForce does it makes me want to cry so much cause its so funny... it's like TriForce is in his twenties, and the video he made makes him sound like a 5-10 year old.

sandford lost mvc2 because it was played on a ps3 with a TE stick, had it been dreamcast with a mas stick that's a different story.

Don't know much about triforce but I know Mileena was saying racist things about Asians, directed particularly at Daigo during a stream, and I seen the racist troll on other steams as well.
I couldn't side with Mileena on anything.
How did this get so far anyways? Its easy to forget this is only about VIDEO GAMES.

PhinnyCupcakes said on August 8, 2010 at 9:47 a.m.

@96 You do know that most trolls aren't actually racist, they're saying racist things just to piss people off. They wouldn't dare say anything like that without their shroud of internet.. and she pissed Triforce off a ton.. Enough to make him make a rage video. She f**king won =P It doesn't matter if the story is fabricated.

Why doesn't Empire Arcadia focus on getting better at SSF4 now? Why waste time and wait for MVC3 which is still far away? Why not be the best in the US at all the games.

@98 Apparently they've actually seen her in the flesh, so no.
