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.
