Kayane also noting problems with arcade sticks at SBO 2012, screen glare and more

Kayane also noting problems with arcade sticks at SBO 2012, screen glare and more Top SoulCalibur 5 player Kayane is currently in attendance at SBO 2012 this weekend and she has come forth to share her thoughts on the event so far. She has posted a detailed article on her Facebook page that discusses her experience at SBO 2012.

Kayane is not the first player to bring up problems being experienced at SBO 2012. EG|Justin Wong recently voiced his thoughts on the event via Twitter.

Below are a couple of bits from Kayane's article.

To be honest, I have been very disapppointed with Tougeki SBO and what it became. By telling my thoughts, I hope they're going to change the way they're running this tournament. Otherwise they will not see many foreigners players anymore. And it’s a pity, knowing Tougeki has always been my dream tournament since I was a child… I was very sad I didn’t recognize it at all.

I wasn’t happy to see that the down direction of the stick wasn’t working for me, they brought me another stick but…I really don’t understand why we can’t play with our stick? If it’s to gain time, then I’m sure they’re actually losing more time because the players want to make sure that the stick they’re playing with is working fine.

Another big problem for players: The sun is not only very hot, it makes glare on the screens since we’re playing outside!!!! Seriously, I have played on the Last Chance tournament screens to train a bit, and it was very hard to see. I heard some players even had to hide the sun with umbrella so that they could see the screen. Honestly it sounds stupid, but if you have to play tomorrow and that the weather is sunny like today, do it if you can.

SBO sucks, SBO really sucks. Players are upset about the whole tournament. I wonder if people will play console games outside.

Well I didn't know what to think when Justin Wong reported problems. But now Kayane says it I can definitely say she may be the most gorgeous woman I have ever seen on a stream!

...More on topic: This sure is a sad state of affairs for one of the major tournaments in Japan.

SBO stands for ScumBag Organization.

@Conr: Yes, Bananaken was screwed out of qualifying last year after spending his own money to go. There was a donation drive by Spooky and others to compensate him after the fact.

@21 How the hell are you calling anyone an imbecile when you can't even write a sentence with proper grammar?

And she was playing with a stick, you idiot. She even said it in her article.

Actually, here. I really shouldn't have typed anything to reply, because this would have sufficed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HoaFW...

However, I really wanted to get my point across regarding how much of an idiot you are.
