Team Spooky now partnered with Mad Catz

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • March 23, 2013 at 2:36 p.m. PDT
At the FGC community panel at PAX East earlier today, it was announced by Mark "Mark Man" Julio that Team Spooky will be partnering with Mad Catz.

Team Spooky contributed to the stream of the Mad Catz Unveiled battle royale event that took place earlier at PAX.

With the newly acquired partnership, we can expect to see more collaborations between Spooky and Mad Catz in the future.

Them Spooky Catz better be hype. Speaking about Akuma_Hokaru, I haven't seen that huge dude in ages.
Easiest thing for me to recall is him falling down ages ago.

jesuslovessatan said on March 23, 2013 at 3:39 p.m.

very good news to hear. i used to play fighting games heavy when i was younger but then i started getting older, fighting games got lame or nonexistent and girls started to grow boobies. i would only get to play a match or two when i ran into any old versus cabinet at some kwik-wash or some mall. SF4 came out, brought my fire back and ive been going hard ever since. the way i figured i would catch up with the level of play was to watch some stream of a tournament. i think it was one of the NECs or something but spooky was streaming it. hype would be an understatement concerning my thoughts. never looked back.

the reason i shared this story is cause i feel that about 70% of my comeback to the scene was spooky. his streams, commentary and dedication to the community were inspiring for an ol school cat like myself. mad kudos to my bro spooky. well deserved, shoulda been sooner.

What will this mean in practice? Madcatz isn't exactly a big company with a lot of money to throw around.

That's nice and all, but Madcatz sponsors everyone not with EMP. I wanna know what exactly this will change for Team Spooky other than putting MCZ in front of their names and having Spooky stream some events and shill their products.

I'm slightly more interested at the dude looking near the direction of the camera. What's his story? What does he know? Hmmmmm

triplefierce said on March 23, 2013 at 6:42 p.m.

The stream on friday was terrible because of a MCZ rep from the UK. It was bad enough that even Zhi couldn't save it. I hope this isn't indicative of what's to come from this partnership.

I havent paid attention to the esports discussions before, but after listening to that MCZ rep's inane babble on stream, I think I now understand the importance of donating to the streams I enjoy. I don't know what this partnership means, but I hope Spooky can still run his stream however he likes.

Congratulations to Spooky and his crew!

Biggz124 said on March 23, 2013 at 6:56 p.m.

Spooky you're a sell-out! Now your all eSports and sh*t. Nah I'm just kidding. I remember u streaming anime & poverty games on ustream in ur basement. U done made it now dude!

#56
KingItachi said on March 23, 2013 at 7:26 p.m.

Congrats to Spooky. People really need to come off that he is the hardest work man in the FGC or that he set the bar for streaming, that goes to lvlup, he is one of the hardest working streamers in the FGC period.

#57
EXCh33ky said on March 23, 2013 at 7:45 p.m.

Spooby is a big picture man. He saw the big picture and went for it. There is no doubt in my mind that the picture he sees now is still bigger and more grand. Stay hype and tuned FGC!
