Yipes already said all there is to be said about this bull$*!T: "Yo this SUCKS".

Firegod said on April 7, 2013 at 1:33 p.m.

Why does he need our opinion...match was staged....the end....

To be on the fair side though, it is Chris G, and I wonder if Fanatiq even figured he had a chance to win the match in the first place.

Then again, who knows, he may have actually tried if that whole thing with spooky didn't go down, so its hard to tell if it was out of spite, or if he really didn't think he would win.


Villest1 said on April 7, 2013 at 1:34 p.m.

So basically they want to know if we believe that the match was "staged"...

I wonder what the repercussions (if any) will be?

mrambitious said on April 7, 2013 at 1:35 p.m.

Just wondering, what made it staged, I am rewatching now but from what I remember of the match it seemed like a usual Chris G fireball fest.

Diamondis said on April 7, 2013 at 1:37 p.m.

Has begun, not began.

DevilMaySpy said on April 7, 2013 at 1:37 p.m.

Just let it die Spooky. This should've ended last week after speaking with Sebastian.

Jennyfromtheblock said on April 7, 2013 at 1:39 p.m.

I would assume that nasty twitter fight the two had recently is why Spooky wont let it go.

Splack said on April 7, 2013 at 1:42 p.m.

Spooky and sebastian already addressed this. Since he is affiliated with madcatz shouldbt he chill with this crap now?

ShaithEatery said on April 7, 2013 at 1:43 p.m.

Fanatiq already explained all of this on his stream the day after it happened. It wasn't staged in the sense that both players were throwing the match, it was Fanatiq sandbagging because he thought it was unfair the brackets weren't reseeded. ChrisG was telling him to play for real on stage but Fanatiq didn't want to. That's what happened, there's no need for speculation and whatnot

disp said on April 7, 2013 at 1:45 p.m.

Unnecessary childish behaviour from Spooky. Let it rest already, the AGE representer already responded and took all responsibility for the players actions.

Drifter said on April 7, 2013 at 1:45 p.m.

Wait. Can someone explain how this was staged?

BushidoV1 said on April 7, 2013 at 1:46 p.m.

smh.... this is more scripted than wrestling.

RiyuRimururu said on April 7, 2013 at 1:46 p.m.

Fanatiq uses spencer? lol...

ShinzoBishamon said on April 7, 2013 at 1:46 p.m.

my god give this a rest the tournament over, you really can't do anything about it now.

sprflyspdrguy said on April 7, 2013 at 1:47 p.m.

Ricky and Justin can use alternates in a match but Chris G and Fanatiq cant? Wtf?

chaoslimits said on April 7, 2013 at 1:48 p.m.

Wow is Sp00ky going to keep dragging this out? Sebastian has already addressed this and apologized. That behavior was expected from Fanatiq but I didn't expect this from Sp00ky.

Youone said on April 7, 2013 at 1:48 p.m.

If I defend Fanatiq can I be a mod on his channel?

DandyCheeks said on April 7, 2013 at 1:49 p.m.

In this particular match, you can tell that if Fanatiq would've tried at certain key moments Fanatiq actually would've taken it. But he gave up because he knows that Chris G has more of a chance of winning the tournament.

KaboomKid said on April 7, 2013 at 1:50 p.m.


Firegod said on April 7, 2013 at 1:52 p.m.

@ #11 ShaithEatery

If your saying that Fanatiq sandbagged and even Chris G was telling him to try then technically it was staged.

He threw the fight and everyone knew it, staged.

blzd said on April 7, 2013 at 1:52 p.m.

dam spooky is going way too far with this just drop it already

ScrubStep said on April 7, 2013 at 1:53 p.m.

13 And 17 its not about using alts. Watch at 10:55 onward.

Tensa said on April 7, 2013 at 1:54 p.m.

yeah ChrisG wanted to play but fanatiq didnt like how the brackets was done so he threw the match, this isnt chrisG's fault really, also at this point we all know what happen so there is really no point an keep going on about this

Villest1 said on April 7, 2013 at 1:55 p.m.

Correct me if I'm wrong but Sebastian addressed Fanatiqs behavior regarding his excessive advertisement plugs and not the player's tournament performances, right?

rogueish1 said on April 7, 2013 at 1:59 p.m.

I agree with the just let it die comments, if you spoke with Sebastion and have an understanding let it die. Otherwise it makes that conversation with Sebastion of no consequence.

ShaithEatery said on April 7, 2013 at 1:59 p.m.

@#22 Firegod

I see staged as both players working together to fix the match to work out a certain way. ChrisG wasn't responsible for what Fanatiq did, so not completely staged. Just Fanatiq throwing the match

Haz_Diante said on April 7, 2013 at 1:59 p.m.

i don't think sp00ky was the one who posted this on Eventhubs, but i do agree that this sh1t needs to die already ive seen valle n choi do it along with justin and Noel etc etc DROP IT ALREADY!!

DevilMaySpy said on April 7, 2013 at 2:01 p.m.

@ Jenny: I understand that, but this is only giving AGE unnecessary attention, and in turn increasing their sales. There's no such thing as bad publicity. I bet those Prismatic Headsets are flying out of the factory as we speak. Hell, I just ordered one with PROMO CODE AGECHRISG AT CHECKOUT FOR 15% OFF!

ForTheViolence said on April 7, 2013 at 2:01 p.m.

InB4 Major Dog crying "F(&( spooky."

Pidgey said on April 7, 2013 at 2:02 p.m.

Why are you still trying to stir stuff up spooky?
Everyone knows this was thrown by fanatiq.
Everyone knows fanatiq messed up with his PDP advertising and got his team in trouble regarding image, etc.
Everyone knows that you have already talked with the people with PDP about it.
The FGC police wont go and beat up chrisg and Fanatiq for this, YOU should have DQed them, not someone else.
If you dont still like them, just dont ever put their name or products on stream. No reason for this.

ForTheViolence said on April 7, 2013 at 2:03 p.m.

@devilmayspy I don't know if you're experienced with marketing, but bad publicity never works for products. It only works when Marketing individuals.

mrambitious said on April 7, 2013 at 2:05 p.m.


I mean yea Fanatiq clearly didn't care but Chris G's face at the end of the match showed that he was surprised at what was going down as well. Chris even dicks around a bit seeing if Fanatiq would come and kill him as if he were playing, but clearly Fanatiq wanted to lose. Doesn't mean it was staged or fixed, just means one guy was essentially rage quitting but wanted to do so by losing best of 5 and not just walking out of the tournament.

YumaTsukumo said on April 7, 2013 at 2:08 p.m.

Spooky is just butt hurt drop this s**t already the whole AGE vs Spooky has been dealt with a long time ago

Haz_Diante said on April 7, 2013 at 2:11 p.m.

lol @35 it was last week not last month

DevilMaySpy said on April 7, 2013 at 2:12 p.m.

And once again Violence has no idea what he's talking about. This issue has nothing to do with the performance of the products themselves, but putting AGE members in the spotlight, which will indirectly result in more sales of said products because they're constantly being presented in our faces. Marketing101.

dfactory said on April 7, 2013 at 2:12 p.m.

Spooky thinks he is acting "professional", but surely he is not. Calling drama live on stream? Flaming on twitter? Oh, that's so professional. And now throwing the community against Fanatiq? Come on, step it up, FGC. We are better than this.

you guys keep saying let it die but it was Fanatiq who didnt let it die after Spooky and Sebastian spoke. its not like Spooky is dragging it on unprovoked. plus I dont really think this should be posted here as news when we all know its just drama

amrinlong said on April 7, 2013 at 2:16 p.m.

As much as I want to think this as an eSport where you are able to excel as an individual, we'll tend to forget that there is a team side to this.
One teammate put his pride aside and for the sake of the team, Fanatiq sent what was in his opinion the best chance for Team AGE to win the tournament. It was his loss to give away. And it has already shown to do wonders for the "Team" by inadvertently bringing unwanted coverage and getting more viewers through internet traffic. Which I imagine is a big part for sponsors.
Let's face it, like real sports, it's a business on top of a game.
ChrisG is undoubtedly the best player and his team believes in him.

CharlieKenSon said on April 7, 2013 at 2:18 p.m.

That looks about right. I didnt even see fanatiq's stream or video after but you can just tell he was BS'n. His movement. The dropped combos. Random supers at the wrong time. Etc etc. i woulda been pissed if i saw this live. Lol.

DarkSamehada said on April 7, 2013 at 2:21 p.m.

the match was staged no one cures let it die and just more on

wingzx20 said on April 7, 2013 at 2:21 p.m.

This really is dick move from Spooky, just let it die.

edrigo said on April 7, 2013 at 2:21 p.m.

Fanatiq is not doing himself any favours. If his sponsors can acknowledge what he's doing and he is still antonginizing spooky then he's being foolish. If your a fan of fanatiq or any other player and they throw games that's just counter productive to players who want their own fanbase. Spooky handled the situation at fr16 badly or not he handled it. Spooky called out wolfkrone he's called out fanatic difference is fanatiq can have a big mouth sometimes.

MRnightmuffin said on April 7, 2013 at 2:26 p.m.

Look at Fanatiq's archives, he's admitted it was staged, why was this needed Sp00ky?

Vespesianus said on April 7, 2013 at 2:28 p.m.

Getting tired of Sp00ky's s**t to be honest.

1. Who cares if he threw the match? I'm sure team mates throw matches against each other all the time. As a spectator, I have to say I don't really care. And regardless of your opinion on match fixing in this way, Chris G is the best in the world and would have beaten Fanatiq anyway, so why are you crying?

2. Fanatiq is a sponsored player, plugging his company's s**t is his job. He is notorious for plugging his s**t all the time, he does it so often, it's a running joke. If Sp00ky (or anyone) told him not to do it and he did it anyway, then fine, f**k him. But I don't believe anyone said anything to him, so why get mad when Fanatiq does what we all know Fanatiq does?

3. Fanatiq has already addressed the issue. His team manager has addressed the issue. The FGC has dissected the issue to death. The matter is settled. Why is Sp00ky drawing this out as much as he can, trying as hard as he can to keep the drama alive? Just let it die, Sp00ky, please, we beg of you.

Haz_Diante said on April 7, 2013 at 2:29 p.m.

@edrigo when did sp00ky call out wolfkrone i totally missed that??

DevilMaySpy said on April 7, 2013 at 2:30 p.m.

@ Diante: It was during PowerUp last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVC4og...

Archive1925 said on April 7, 2013 at 2:30 p.m.


You basically said what I was thinking in this whole overblown situation. I don't know how many times we see Team EG players up against each other and mysteriously Justin, Ricky, or PR Top Teir drops combos on each other. Happens all the time folks, when friends and teammates are working towards making money, one will lay down for the other.

Since Spooky won't let this go, does that mean AGE is going to tell Chris G he can't collect his rent money at Big Two anymore?

Nago said on April 7, 2013 at 2:31 p.m.

If the point of this is to gauge if there's any interest in condoning this and having it shown on stream for... entertainment value? or whatever: NO. Make them forfeit instead of doing this garbage and show some decent matches.

MarkHighHill said on April 7, 2013 at 2:33 p.m.

The Gamestop tournaments placed you against the immediate people who registered at the time you did. I'm sure plenty of people felt cheated and plenty of people let the better player win since most of the matches were friend vs friend. And if I want to join a tournament and mess around, I think I should be allowed to, especially if I pay and contribute to the pot. I'm not saying anyone is right or wrong. Just stating from my own experience and opinion. I do think there's a lot of unprofessional actions happening.

Darc_Requiem said on April 7, 2013 at 2:52 p.m.

That match was bovine feces.

ForTheViolence said on April 7, 2013 at 2:57 p.m.

@37 relax dood. I was just trying to give you some insight. I have a degree in Marketing. and I don't know about what you mean by once again because I've never spoken to you in my life. whether it's the product or the sponsored player being put in the spotlight is irrelevant. The players are being put in the spotlight in a negative light, that's not going to increase the sale of the products the are affiliated with. It actually hurts the brand. By your logic companies should sponsor and promoted individuals of poor character to promote there products. There's a reason why companies pull products and endorsements when an individual commit's a wrongful act. Market value has also been proven to go down in the case of products during situations like this. Or have you not taken notice of the Adam Orth always online fiasco that occurred over simple tweets recently? If a company like Microsoft or age has to do damage control that means that it's not beneficial. So please, before you start pointing fingers and saying I don't know what the F*&* im talking about you better be sure you are at least somewhat knowledgeable on the subject.

dissapointed with the "let it die" mentality. We cant keep letting this kind garbage slide. either you want the FGC to grow or we keep letting this slide. If this was any other pro level game it would be a front page blow up with the player being kicked out.

TheTHCGamer said on April 7, 2013 at 3:09 p.m.

No its good that Spooky put this vid up because it puts people who are staging matches on blast. If you dont feel like winning then dont compete in the tournament and waste everyones time. Matches like this make some people wonder how legit tournaments are. You dont want people questioning the legitimacy of tournaments with all the money and time that goes into them.

PropLeXed said on April 7, 2013 at 3:10 p.m.

No offense to spooky, but can this just die already.

HyperCombinationFinish said on April 7, 2013 at 3:17 p.m.

Personally I don't really care. Sure it was staged, but then again, they're both AGE and Chris is the stronger player. He was gonna win anyways. If you don't want stuff like this happening, then spread out AGE across different brackets.

ForTheViolence said on April 7, 2013 at 3:18 p.m.

@56 exactly, this is the only way spooky can raise awareness. He does not have the authority to ban players from events, or take away sponsorship's. Spooky doesn't have that kind of power, so he's doing it with the only thing he has journalism. The canon brothers only has to make a statement and issue a yellow card to Jwong threatining to DQ him from Evo because they had power that spooky does not. This is a problem plaguing many fgc streams and events and it has to stop, not just on team spooky streams. If the FGC wants to grow it has to be put on blast when poop hits the fan like this. Remember cross assualt? many websites put the fgc on blast casting it into a bad light. That hurt the hell out of the community and everyone affiliated with the show had to put out damage control even people who were not. Did the FGC need that? hell yeah. that stuff never happened again. Do you think this kind of thing will happen as often now? no because spooky is raising awareness. Nobody called jaxel an a-hole when he put To's and players like KOR on blast in his video explaining that tournaments needed to be ran on time and to stop showing up late. Yet, after that video I have attended two majors and both were ran very very very well compared to tournaments I attended prior to that. Throwing matches on stream at majors, and free promotion should never be allowed. so kudos to spooky for raising awareness because this isn't just for his streams, this is for the FGC.

MasterOfMagnet said on April 7, 2013 at 4:32 p.m.

Spooky wanted E-sports - he get it.

The only difference is that real esports guys good at acting matches, but motivation is the same - thinking about team success more than about your fighting moneyz.

Dont forget about Justin's splitting pots etc. Dont blame Fanatiq just because sometimes he going mad on selfpromotion or something.

DevilMaySpy said on April 7, 2013 at 4:34 p.m.

@ Violence: You just don't know when to stop, do you?


Post #37. Now, before you try to spew more ignorance Mr. "Marketing Major", please tell everyone why Chik-Fil-A broke a sales record while openly expressing anti-gay sentiments on mainstream media. Let me help you: because controversy sells. Whether people agree or disagree with this situation, the name AGE is in everyone's mouth, which equals unpaid advertisements by 3rd party sources.

ForTheViolence said on April 7, 2013 at 5:04 p.m.

@devilmayspy 0_o it's funny how you remember speaking with me, and me not speaking too you. That was a long time ago and not a significant enough instance in my life for me to take note of it in my brain. You're right I guess we have spoken before, you most post here alot to remember that. But anyway, your argument is invalid. You are comparing perishable food which by the way is a necessity to survival for everyone (Food) to a company that that has one and one market only (gamers). I also studied this instance during my last year of school as an assignment. America has an estimate of 224,457,000 Christians making it the largest christian population in the world.
Many people around 60% appose gay marriage, now 40% either not caring or saying "yes gay marriage" is also a large number. The truth about chick fil a is that it was close to 50% negative 50% positive publicity because it was based on an opinion people can agree or disagree on, not an action that is wrong no matter how you look at it. the positive and negative press equaled each other out, most people don't care for gay marriage enough to stop eating somewhere or they appose gay marriage. but this isn't about gay marriage, and no I don't feel like stopping because you always want to insist on talking about poop you don't know anything about. The only people who are aware of this is the FGC, do you think a starcraft or lol players knows about what fanatiq did? no, how about a casual gamer? no. this in term isolates the market this is affecting, it's only affecting the fgc because they are the only ppl who know about it. Is this being covered on kotaku or destructoid? no, this is only being covered on fgc related websites. How many people do you think in the fgc have bought an age related product since this incident because they've been hearing about AGE alot? Not many if any. By a show of hands how many people have bought an age product because of all this negative publicity that has been affecting your community? and by a show of hands, how many of you have subbed to canada cup after the 8.95 debacle because of the publicity. I rest my case, stop making a fool of yourself.

jaihen1979 said on April 7, 2013 at 5:31 p.m.

@56 & 57

FINALLY, someone up here that makes sense. Listen people. We gotta get out of this sheep mentality. We, as the FGC, have to keep each other accountable & honest. EVEN THE SPONSORS. As crazy as it may sound, Fanatiq could've beaten him.

ForTheViolence said on April 7, 2013 at 5:34 p.m.

@74 That's interesting, but a percentage of increase without a time table says nothing about what increased sales or over what period sales increased. it only says that sales increased. I think the fact that fanatiq constantly plugging his promo code during the stream (before the drama and bad press) to idk, tens of thousands of people might have had something to do with that. Also fanatiq spoke of April 1st, which by the way is consistent with the date (1st of the month) that companies receive statistics of sales each month sales are evaluated for losses or gains. final round ended on sunday the 31st meaning the tournament ran from the 29-31. so what you are telling me is this. a small community mishap which hasn't reached websites outside of a community that probably makes less than 10% of PDPs sales, that lasted for 3 days tops last month has enough influence to increase the sale of a headset that is marketed heavily in every gaming related community including E sports, and casuals by 260%? Pack it up.

100thMonkey said on April 7, 2013 at 5:34 p.m.

Who actually cares about any of this which is happening. Fanatiq dropped the match, his lost.

This is what the FGC does, overhype everything to make it seem a bigger deal than it actually is.

ForTheViolence said on April 7, 2013 at 5:42 p.m.

i also want to remind you that it's the 7th of this month today. the bad press has taken place mostly this month, so statistics from the 1st with no time table and only possibly tell us that fanatiq plugging his code is what increased sales if it can even tell us that. it's not possible for the numbers to reflect the bad press. if you can give me the numbers in the future for 5/1/2013 then i would consider it, but with no time table they would be irrelevant as well.

Smorgasboard said on April 7, 2013 at 7:15 p.m.

fanatiq seems like an alright (and sometimes very funny) dude but how many times can you piss people off and convince yourself that you are the victim. at some point don't you question whether you may be doing something wrong? good job to spooky for calling out scumbaggery in the fgc, if someone doesn't do that its gonna wind up being a pretty lame community.

22Travail said on April 8, 2013 at 7:03 a.m.

People, Spooky wants feedback for a reason. If I was Spooky I wouldn't let it go either because if one person does it than they all will. I don't want to watch a stream with everyone throwing fights and playing fake teams for promotion or for there "friend/partner" to win. The only thing the stream monsters will learn is how to be fake and gay. This was disrespectful to not only Spooky but to us too. It was a waste of our time and (for people who donate) money. This one situation is reason why people are saying the FGS is getting SOFT!

Smorgasboard said on April 8, 2013 at 7:04 a.m.

Let's ban all the boring stuff like Morrigan, Doom and Vergil too since people might stop watching. Or maybe we should ban Chris G and Dios X instead.

Please stop. We all know it was staged since they both had many times they culda killed each other and didn't. At the end of the day fanatiq apologized and you said your side of the story too. Can we please continue to see your streaming instead of the silly drama?

Taken from the Final Round rules:

Any intentional forfeiting or conspiring to manipulate the brackets will result in ejection from the tournament and possible suspension from future events.

This was staged, this was so obviously staged. You dont need comments Spooky... you know as well as anyone that this was a fake match. I love how Fanatiq at the end was like, "Oh its over? I didn't realize"... ya bro... remember that match you threw out the window? or all those times you COULD have hit him that you chose to not? Or all those times where Chris dropped combos to try to keep it interesting.

Personally this is why UMVC3 has polluted FGC tournaments. It would be a great game if people played honestly, but most people only care about money matches (i.e. Fanatiq) and are willing to throw matches to get a slice of the pie. If a player is found to be guilty of throwing a match by the tournament holder and community, they should be suspended from all tournament play until they issue a formal apology and relinquish their spot in that tournament the following year.

I wouldnt suspend a player for ALL tournaments since one everyone runs there major different an may or may not care also FR16 wasnt a road to evo event so I dont think wizard or srk could do much about it I agree though I dont like the idea of throwing matches I mean we already got pot splitting lol
