I agree one hundred percent. Definitely was the biggest hype moment so far and I don't even like KI

Oh wow, I didn't know VSav was getting streamed.

I ignored EVO completely this year because after looking at the official EVO schedule, I figured they weren't going to be streaming real games this year.

Watching UMvC3 now.

Hate Yipes commentary. It's just him grunting, saying "Ooh! Aah!".

I don't understand more of anything with his input.

So happy there is a really talented Rolento playing USF IV. I loved Rolento since Alpha 2 and played him the moment Ultra came out on PC. People poo-pooed him, but he is being shown as a threat and I love it!

Yeah, it was pretty anti-climactic at that point. The third round didn't feel right after all.

Stick mess totally sucked all the hype out of the room. Bummer way to end it.

Was the speculation as to Gamerbee being within his rights to take the game, rather than only the round, just waffle, then?

Yes, the rules state that only the round will be forfeited:

- In the event of an equipment failure, they player has the option to stop the Game in progress to obtain an replacement.
- If a Game is stopped in progress, the reporting player must forfeit the current round.
New equipment must be immediately available. If replacement equipment cannot be obtained in a timely manner, the player must continue to play on their current equipment or forfeit the Match.
- Once replacement equipment is obtained, the player is given the rest of the round to configure their buttons and test the new equipment. If the player gains an undue advantage by doing so (e.g. charging an abundance of super meter), they must forfeit the Game.

Yeah, it was building up to an epic last round. Then, stick mess.

Suddenly the room went quiet and the excitement wouldn't come back once the stick thing was figured out.

Figures, since losing a round because of the stick doesn't really tell us who is better.
