Community leaders talk about collusion and pot splitting in fighting game tournaments

Some people felt that the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 grand finals at Texas Showdown between EG|Justin Wong and AGE|NYChrisG was an example of collusion or pot splitting. Since that time, there has been a lot of discussion on Twitter from from many notable names in the community on this subject.

Below is a short excerpt from the official EVO tournament rules on collusion, from Tom Cannon.

Collusion of any kind with your competitors is considered cheating. If the Tournament Director determines that any competitor is colluding to manipulate the results or intentionally underperforming, the collaborating players may be immediately disqualified. This determination is to be made at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director. Anyone disqualified in this manner forfeits all rights to any titles or prizes they might have otherwise earned for that tournament.

We have gathered quotes from Justin Wong, ChrisG, MarkMan (Mad Catz) and Victor Fontanez (Team Spooky) into the story here so you can see what is being discussed and offer your thoughts on the subject as well.

After Justin Wong and ChrisG played their first match of the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 grand finals at Texas Showdown by random selecting their teams, they posted the following statements on their respective Twitter accounts. Note: After the first match, both competitors played their main teams, and the random select match apparently did not count towards the outcome of the tournament.

Capcom pushing for a more compelling single player experience in future fighting games, full fledged story modes being one component

Capcom pushing for a more compelling single player experience in future fighting games, full fledged story modes being one component The Ask Capcom forums continue their activity fielding numerous questions from readers. One user recently addressed the topic of story modes in Capcom fighting titles and their lack there of.

This same forum user mentiones many examples of fighting games that include intricate story modes such as Mortal Kombat 9, Blazblue, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and even Injustice: Gods Among Us which will hit store shelves very soon.

Capcom U.S.A.'s senior VP, Christian Svensson, jumped in to voice his opinion on the matter and states that the company is pushing for their fighting franchises to incorporate full fledged story modes in the future.

The strategic marketing group here has for quite a while been pushing for our fighting franchises to have more and better single player content, of which full fledged story modes are one component.

How and when those requirements manifest in our future roadmap, I'm not prepared to speak about at this time.

CD Jr.: Injustice and MK9's gameplay are completely different - Injustice's gameplay is very unique and like no other fighting game

CD Jr.: Injustice and MK9's gameplay are completely different - Injustice's gameplay is very unique and like no other fighting game We had the chance to speak with Empire Arcadia's Emmanuel "CD Jr." Brito to get his thoughts on the upcoming release of Injustice: Gods Among Us.

CD Jr. is considered one of the best Mortal Kombat 9 players in the fighting game community, and was even invited by NetherRealm Studios to test Injustice ahead of its release, to offer feedback to the development team on how they could improve the product.

Emmanuel covers how Injustice's gameplay stacks up with MK9, how strong he thinks the tournament following for the game will be, and if the Capcom tournament players will be able to take on the MK community in the new title.

Check out the first part of the interview below, and hit the jump to read the entire piece.

EventHubs: You're regarded as one of the best Mortal Kombat 9 players around, how strong do you think you'll be in Injustice: Gods Among Us?

Emmanuel "EMP|CD Jr." BritoWell: It all depends on how much I end up loving the game. I am so good in Mortal Kombat because of how passionate I am about the game, and how much love I have for MK in general.

I am the type of player that if I don't REALLY like a game I won't be able really good at it, because I don't really care for it. I can play it, and be competitive, but won't try to excel at it. That is a why I'm not good at Street Fighter 4, I don't have love for the game. I know some pro players that play Marvel because of the money, and because it is the most popular game out right now, I can't do that.

EventHubs: How did you help NetherRealm Studios adjust Injustice while you were play testing the game? Were there any specific things that stood out to you during this process?

EMP|CD Jr.: We (the testers) were basically trying to find bugs, glitches, infinites, and giving opinions about the game, like what we think should change or stay, which characters we thought were too strong or too weak, which moves needed to be toned down or buffed, stuff like that.

What I really liked about testing Injustice: Gods Among Us was how the developers acted towards us when we were there, like they would tell us not to keep any opinions to ourselves and to always tell or ask them for any info about the game. They were all really nice to us.

Blizzard purchases IGN's Pro League, no plans to continue operation of IPL business

Blizzard purchases IGN's Pro League, no plans to continue operation of IPL business Updated: Blizzard has clarified that they have "no plans to continue operation of the IPL business," and that existing staff members will help form a new team who's primary focus will be on creating high-quality web and mobile content in support of Blizzard games.

In early March IGN's Pro League was officially cancelled and in IGN's official statement they mentioned finding a new home for the league. Today, it was announced that Blizzard had purchased IPL.

Back in November 2012, it was announced that the Capcom fighting games Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 and Street Fighter X Tekken v2013 were supposed to join the league this season, although this looks like it will not happen now.

Additionally, IGN noted about their IPL staff joining Blizzard's existing eSports team.

Other IPL staff members will join Blizzard’s existing eSports team. Following today’s news, IGN will partner with multiple eSports organizations to cover their events in the future rather than focusing on a few key titles.

GameSpot's Rod Breslau confirmed that Mike Ross would not be joining IPL again once Blizzard gets everything up and going.
