Posted by SFilp • March 6, 2013 at 7:15 p.m. PST
Updated: IFC Yipes leaves Broken Tier, joins Empire Arcadia Updated: During the Next Level Battle Circuit stream by Team Spooky, IFC Yipes announced that he has once again joined Empire Arcadia.

Koogy from Broken Tier announced on Twitter, that IFC Yipes will be leaving his sponsorship group. Here is what Koogy and Yipes both had to say.

Koogy: We've had an awesome run together, but we're sad to announce that IFC Yipes will be leaving Team BT effective today. We'll still be ..working together to bring you amazing clothing and events, so fear not! I'm proud of Yipes.

Yipes: It was an honor to represent your team homie =) I'm still running with the brand though so I'm not leaving at all =)

Yipes is the second member to leave BrokenTier in the past two weeks, as Dieminion left to join Empire Arcadia.

last paragraph: "This is the second member of team member to leave..."

Just a heads up :)

So this pretty much spoils the announcement for tonight on spooky's stream :)

Damn. It's good to know that he's still working with Koogy on the design aspect for BT but I hope this doesn't mean we won't see him as often in tournaments.

@38 They had a contract. They have been signed for almost a year now and from what I heard with Dieminion his contract ended and he didn't wish to renew it. He went to EMP instead.

getsaltier said on March 6, 2013 at 7:58 p.m.

All this Empire "resurgence" is VXG paying for the transportation of EMP players to St. Maarten and the big East Coast tourneys until then and also Evo. There's no hype about this tournament and Triforce scamme... talked VXG into thinking that Empire is somehow a great promotion vehicle for them in the States.

EMP will revert back to Triforce bagging groceries for rent money once VXG 2013 happens and VXG realizes their association with EMP isn't bringing in any money for them.

The only question is how long will Dieminion / Yipes stay with EMP after VXG. The over/under line imo is three months.

Since when is Yipes mid-tier?

@zero and getsaltier you guys should have tuned in to the on blast show last night to get informed.

#64
Regaldo77 said on March 6, 2013 at 8:15 p.m.

@60 I didn't know Dieminion was a mid-tier player. Guess all those majors he placed top 8 in or won don't mean squat too right?

#65

@60 Yipes and Dieminion are Mid tier? Yipes is top 5 in UMvC3. Dieminion was 8th in AE at EVO with a mid tier flawed character, not to mention he is now top 5 in SFxT. Why do you people hate so much?

#72
koolersama said on March 6, 2013 at 9:07 p.m.

everyone has a price and vxg proved that. VXG has real money and at the end of the day thats what its all about. players know its a hit or miss but if its a hit then all of them will get mad bank roll by being apart of it.

@66 If you actually knew anything about EMP, you would realize how false that statement was. Here's one simple example, EMP Tom Brady.

#76 Yipes won EVO for MvC2 as well as Season's Beatings not to mention majors for UMvC3. Dieminion also has majors under his belt in SF, recently Marvel, and recently SFxT also getting top 8 at evo is no easy feat whatsoever that alone is like winning a tournament.

dorayaki said on March 6, 2013 at 11:45 p.m.

you numbskulls are imbeciles. Kobe Bryant isn't winning anything this year, but sponsors will pay him. Tiger hasn't been hot, sponsors pay him. It's the image that they're sponsoring. Yes, you gotta win to have exposure. But you have to have the image to get MORE exposure. Yipes is perfect for that. Not to mention, he already has a great following. Infiltration can't even speak english and attends three majors a year in USA max, and you vagabonds would sponsor him in the USA??? Genius.

Carry on.

#85, VxG2013. Biggest event this year. Better payout than Evo.

#86
scytheavatar said on March 7, 2013 at 2:39 a.m.

@86 basically EMP has the VxG money and can afford to send the EMP players to places that BT and other sponsors can't, just look at how they had sent Dieminion to WCG and are planning to send him to Red Fight District.

Janitor4290 said on March 7, 2013 at 5:39 a.m.

Wonder who is next and what is next in general for Empire... Could have sworn Triforce said he was done with the FGC and would focus on his "other" divisions.

Dieminion is the best guile in the world unless proven otherwise mid tier? I think not. Especially because he doesn't cover his bad matchups with secondary chars. Yipes is in the top three marvel players.

Good Sh^t EMP
