Ryan Hart suspended indefinitely by Western Wolves

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • December 2, 2012 at 3:53 p.m. PST
Ryan Hart suspended indefinitely by Western Wolves After suffering a loss to fellow teammate MCZ|Mago at the UK Street Fighter 25th anniversary qualifier earlier today, it was reported that Ryan Hart had been suspended indefinitely by Western Wolves for posting some negative remarks on Twitter.

Western Wolves, who's sponsored in part by Mad Catz, issued this statement on their website.

In light of the events during the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary tournament in Telford, United Kingdom, Western Wolves has decided to suspend Ryan Hart until further notice.

His actions after his loss against fellow Team Mad Catz player, Mago were not fitting of a Western Wolves player. His tweet did not portray good sportsmanship or professional conduct. It did not reflect the views and values of Western Wolves in any way.

On behalf of the entire organization we would like to extend our apologies to Mad Catz and emphasize that we hold them in the highest regard.

Ryan also posted his own apology on Twitter.

I know everyone likes a bit of drama, but I'm sorry Mad Catz. I just said that out of frustration to my loss. Everyone knows Mad Catz rocks!

Here's what I don't get. Ryan tweeted that "Mago had his chance [to qualify for the 25th anniversary tournament] in Japan." Okay, let's look at the Japan entrants compared to the UK entrants. The competition was a lot stiffer in Japan. And lol @ Ryan for considering this bad teamwork, but openly bashing your team = good teamwork.

How he gonna blame Madcatz for him losing the damn match? You a grown ass man, go win. Madcatz products suck, but Ryan lost that match by not being good enough to beat Mago, bottom line.

#38
massi4h said on December 2, 2012 at 4:35 p.m.

OK I'm going to state what I think it looks like if I put myself in Ryan's shoes. Basically I'm assuming this tournament had 2 qualifying spots to go to the 25th Anniversary finals in the USA (can't remember where) later this month.

What Ryan is really mad about is that his team MCZ sent over 2 of Japan's finest to take those spots leaving him unable to win the trip or represent his own country/continent. He obviously lashed out a bit too much, but I can see where he is coming from and do feel a bit bad for the guy.

True that.

It is kinda bullsh1t.
Madcatz and EG are sending 2 Japanese players to the SF anniversary to represent the "United Kingdom??"

Well.... Can can you do?
Its business and business is bullsh1t.
Madcatz and EG want as many representatives @ SF anniversary.

Ryan Hart is a very talented player, and I wish him the best.
ESports everyone.

#42
massi4h said on December 2, 2012 at 4:41 p.m.

@41 oh yeah my bad, but what I said still stands. He was clearly not happy even before the match when he heard that Mago was coming.

RedCyclone said on December 2, 2012 at 4:41 p.m.

There are many players who you wouldn't expect to get salty like that after losing.

Ryan Hart is not one of those players.

Kurow said on December 2, 2012 at 4:43 p.m.

You have too admit that is bad and cheap that top players are traveling all over the USA and the world just trying to the get money or an opportunity to get in the San Francisco finals.

Look at Justin Wong and Ricky Ortiz going to every single 25th tourney in USA and taking the final spots and money that people of that cities/countries were suppose to take adding different faces and play styles to the Grand Finals in San Francisco. Mago and Momochi got their chance in the Japanese 25th tourney and this tourney was for the UK and European players no for the Japanese players.

I'm not from UK or a Ryan Hart fan but next time Capcom should make a rule that people that already won a city/country tourney and is classified can't participate in the rest of the tournaments to allow more people and new people to access the grand finals.

chosenst said on December 2, 2012 at 4:47 p.m.

My guess is that none of you have been on a professional gaming team or competed in the highest echelon of competitive gaming because this is an absolute joke. Why on earth would any of these teams go out of their way to send players across the country to compete in regional tournaments where they already have representatives? It's one thing to get Mago some exposure and what not but you're deliberating hurting the chances of one of your other sponsored players qualifying at all... someone had to have thought that over before this decision was made and if they didn't... well if they didn't, lol.

#47
chosenst said on December 2, 2012 at 4:49 p.m.

Just to clarify, I'm not trying to play the "holy then thou" card by saying none of you have done any competitive gaming, the point I was trying to make was the fact that these guys put so much time and effort into their craft... something that we consider just a hobby. For a guy to have to play against his teammate that was flown in from another country after already having qualified there is a bit egregious and I'm sure that's exactly what Ryan Hart was thinking the entire time and it all came out when he was eliminated 1 spot from reaching the biggest tournament his game has ever seen.

#48
TonyCorleone said on December 2, 2012 at 4:50 p.m.

He deserves it. Street Fighter is entering the E-Sports environment and people have to learn how to conduct themselves graciously in defeat. We can't have people running around calling people and their sponsors names.

Ryan's a grown man and should know better. Fancy biting the hand that feeds.

I've heard rumours about him being salty before, but I just put it down to rumour, and the things he said then were even worse.

In my opinion the guy has got what's coming to him.

Nothing worse than a sore loser.

It's not as if he couldn't have gone to France to try and qualify. I suppose he was pissed because Infiltration has pissed on his parade the last couple of years and beaten him at Dreamhack.

What a terrible thing to do to poor Mago. Mago is so humble and shows great humility in defeat.

Ban him from tournaments for this, this is diabolical behaviour.

#51
Donald_K_Bahls said on December 2, 2012 at 4:54 p.m.

Hart is right and wrong. Mad Catz could have sent one Japanese player to France, and one to UK. However, Ryan knew this was coming because he watched this happen in other countries. It's stupid, and it's wrong to allow it. When you fail to qualify for the USA olympic team, if you're an American, you don't get to qualify for the Canadian team unless you have dual citizenship. Rules should have expressly stated that you must be a citizen of the country in which you wish to compete.

#52
Firegod said on December 2, 2012 at 4:56 p.m.

I love the interenet because aparently alot of people are perfect and dont make mistakes. Wish i was perfect, oh well.

Honestly, dude made a mistake, he was angry and lashed out. It happens. Im not saying it was good or smart, but what I am saying is that I doubt the dude just tweeting to be a Ahole, he aparently was salty as hell and felt like he was being mistreated. And like #27 said, if your salt levels are that off the charts, your just in a blind rage. Im sure he calmed down, looked at the tweet, deleted it and felt like a moron.

It happens, get off the dudes nuts.

BTW i hate this esports crap, liked it when you could say what you wanted and it would start a fued, that would last for months, then someone would get boddied, they would hug it out and everything would be cool. now dudes gotta stay fresh to keep the media and public happy cause they dont wannt to give the fighting game community (that has never done anything wrong or ever made a mistake) a bad rep.

massi4h said on December 2, 2012 at 5:04 p.m.

@46, that was a rule, if you qualified in a game, then you couldn't compete in any more qualifiers for it. Justin and Ricky went around to all the tournaments to try and qualify for all 4 games, whenever they won one then they couldn't play it again at another event but could still play the other games they hadn't qualified in.

Deckard_Cain said on December 2, 2012 at 5:07 p.m.

Well I mean, Madcatz did send a JAPANESE player, to the UK to take the UK's spot in the 25th. That's kinda slimy. I mean it's the UK qualifier, for THE UK PLAYERS. And Ryan Hart is a Madcatz player and a UK player and yet because Madcatz sent a Japanese player to the UK, he now doesn't get a chance to represent his country, ANOTHER Japanese player gets into the 25th, they already took Brazil's and other countries.

Ryan shouldn't have tweeted that but imagine you're in the same position. It would **** sucks.

#59
MetallicA said on December 2, 2012 at 5:07 p.m.

It's alright to snap and get salty every once in a while but not on your freaking sponsors! Such a dumb move, Western Wolves would of course have to do something about it before MadCatz asks them to.

Anyway, the guy already realized his mistake immediately after posting the tweet and he obviously regrets it, hope he'll get back to being sponsored soon, he's a great player and it would be a shame to not see him at tournaments as often anymore.

#60
PropLeXed said on December 2, 2012 at 5:14 p.m.

I agree there should have been some sort of ruling about players being allowed to compete when and where but what's done is done, Ryan should have kept it quiet instead of putting it out there over twitter of all places.

I think the FGC should commission an investigation into this behaviour by sponsors. Ryan Hart should have played against his peers in the UK tournament, but instead went up against two of the finest players in the world.

Ryan was denied his chance to represent his country.

I for one call for a detailed investigation into this slimy behaviour by MadCatz. Weed the culprits out and have them hung, drawn and quartered.

To be the best, you gotta beat the best. It doesn't matter how underhanded MCZ may or may not be for sending Mago. He was not denied his chance to represent his country, he LOST the oppurtunity to represent his country. How the hell is people condoning somebody crying because they aren't good enough to beat someone?

Firegod said on December 2, 2012 at 5:19 p.m.

@#63 its not about excuses as far as him being human, its about everyone kickin the dude in his balls for what he did.

I say he deserves what he gets, but i refuse to bad mouth the dude and act like ive never made a mistake before. I dont justify what he did, but im not going to justify myself by trashing him.

We wanna be esports and be PG, but when someone makes a mistake we take the chance to rip his balls off, thats my problem.

Yeah, I hear you. I won't necessarily bad mouth him personally, but if this was one of my friends and this happened, we would be rippin into him for cryin about losin, no matter how good the other person is. I'm sure he'll laugh it off eventually. If I win, I want to beat the best people possible. Not cry because the guy is too good for me. That was horribly poor form, there.

If Fanatiq lost a match on the west coast (or anywhere that he would have to be flown out to by AGE) to ChrisG and cried about AGE putting him in that situation, he would be sh!t on incredibly. He's been playing SF4 well enough, and for long enough that he should be able to win when he needs to. That's his problem.

jaihen1979 said on December 2, 2012 at 5:47 p.m.

You damn right. If Ryan was one of the best, he would have won. Bottom line. Don't care about a word written on that word press junk. These cats practice they asses off. If he was good enough to win, he would have won. Don't get yo ass busted and start cryin after the fact. If it was like that, he should have just told them he needed to prepare. He cried like a girl and bitched them out afterwords anyway, so it wouldn't have hurt him to just speak his mind and say he needs to train more.

#81
Firegod said on December 2, 2012 at 6:07 p.m.

@#75 thanks

@# 74. Yea you are right and probably my freinds would have done the same. I guess my problem is the way people (specially online) like to drive into people with no respect or knowladge that "it could happen to them."

im not going to say that ive never cried like a 3 year old when stuff didnt go my way, and im also not going to say that in the exact situation i woudlnt do the same thing. Maybe i would have gone off the deep end. who knows? dude was salty, and your right he will probably laugh histericly as he realizes that he may be out of a sponsership.

But life happens, you make mistakes take your bumps and move on.

Now if he gets another sponsership and acts the same way, then dude needs to quit playing games lol. I would hope he isnt that dumb though.

#82
JamieKarpenter said on December 2, 2012 at 6:09 p.m.

Ryan Hart is partially right. Why would they fly out the Japanese players to participate in a UK tournament; especially since they had a similar qualifier in their area? Sponsors like madcatz play both ends against the middle because there are not other sponsors flocking to this median. You would never see Coke or Pepsi sponsor six different nascar racers in the same race. That’s un professional. What Ryan Hart did was clearly unprofessional but Madcatz and Mark Man are one of the most unethical companies I have ever seen. Back when that issue of sexual harassment with Aries was in the news and Marn made sexist comments; Mark Man did nothing about it. Later on in a chat during Ultra Chen, Marn was making more crazy off the wall comments and Mark Man was in chat and said nothing. Mad Catz is nothing but favoritism and unprofessionalism at its finest.

#83
RedCyclone said on December 2, 2012 at 6:09 p.m.

@73 True, but none of the Brazilian players had MCZ sponsorships so they wouldn't have reason to think their sponsor wasn't looking out for them.

Judging from the tweet it appeared he was more frustrated that his sponsor flew in a strong player (that had already had a chance to qualify and failed) to compete against him. He didn't seem mad that Momochi or Chi-Rithy were there.

Still, going public like that was really stupid. He Should have kept this to himself or taken it up with Madcatz in private.

Firegod said on December 2, 2012 at 6:15 p.m.

Ryan should have talked to his sponsors privately regarding this matter. And, by the way, people are forgetting that some Japanese and non-Japanese players also do this when they want to qualify for SBO. They visit other countries with a weak player base in order to get a slot.

If you have problem with this set-up, talk with the tournament organizers and ask them if they have rules regarding this matter. Bitching on the internet won't help your case especially if you're targeting your own sponsor.

Just because the tournaments are held in specific countries does not make them nationally exclusive. Rather, it merely provides the opportunity for people in such regions to attend a tournament without exuberant travel costs. Moreover, I thought the purpose of winning a tournament was to be the best. If Ryan wasn't good enough to win he should have accepted that instead of ranting. Pros show up to toryuken all the time and when I lose I don't cry that Justin Wong beat me and he should have stayed in his own country. I am content to have tested my skills with the best and i accept knowing the better player won. Good luck mago and momochi!

Let's be real, no one from Europe would win at the finals anyways.

@96 lol you are stupid.

All the teams always send more than one players to qualifiers in case one player messed it up.

AGE vangief didn't qualify because he lost to his teammate.
J wong lost to Ricky in the first qualifier, but he didn't complain about it.

HOsnest to god the guy tweets one message and the whole world blows up?... "meh" is all I can think of really. Not best move, but downing some guy cuz of one tweet/post is bit far imo, not that trolls are lacking.

Now the talk of Madcatz sending players from other countries to compete in the "Street Fighter 25th Anniversary" world series is WAY OVERDUE. I mean theres talk about who gets a tittle then theres the $ aspect of it. Capcom wanted to give back to the community by .5 mill in tourneys that we KNOW are going to sponsored players. So how can you blame Madcatz or its players all wanting in on it and flying them around?
The idea mighta worked better some years ago before "eSports" but good luck finding players under the sun who can put in as much time as a sponsored player. Seems like it would have been better to give back to the community by taking risks releasing some free DLC.

ryan hart is exactly right on this one. Its one thing for players who are individuals to travel around so they can increase their personal goals of winning. But madcatz are supposed to be a team so it would be nice to not have teammates step on each others toes. Essentially, this would be like a coach of a basketball team telling one player to steal the ball from a teamate so they can make a game winning shot.
Yea, i know hart is expexted to subject himself to madcatz decision, but the whole situation is bs and the fact that hart is expected to just bend over and take it is bs too. I respect harts decision to try to save face but i couldn't take that, i'd say screw madcatz, he's done too much work with western wolves to be treated like that.

Ryan was angry for a legitimate reason since that was a low blow how things were set up but he did not react the right way. He made himself feel better for the Short-term, but hardly for the long-term. Still Tourney Organizers should not allow this to happen

Low maturity level? Poor impulse control? Twitter was made for people like you!
