I thought he wasn't getting nerfed that badly? Will still be a good character.

Gootecks has done great stuff for the community, but let's be honest. Dude hasn't been relevant in the tournament scene since like vanilla SFIV.

Invitations were based on CPT season standings (top 12 global plus the highest regional player in NA/EU/SA/Asis), not CPT finals placement (as originally reported). That's why neither Kazunoko or GO1 were invited, even though they both made top 8 at Capcom Cup finals.

But we need e-sports superstars like Gootecks invited, even though he has no real shot making it past the prelims. What's the point?

Why are people obsessing over Gootecks, an icon in the scene, when there's an invited player whose only claim to fame is that they physically attacked their opponent after losing a match.

And we don't know who declined invites. Maybe they asked Mike Ross too, who knows.

Personalities and storylines. Marn, Gilty, Gooteck and LPN look like they're there mainly for that. Marn and Gilty can usually end up playing out of their mind then floppi g though. Should be good.

I know, right? Dude's my second favorite commentator but Zhi is too much for national TV. How James Chen wasn't selected for this is mind boggling. He's the only commentator I know that explains fighting game terms or gives helpful info about fighting games to newcomers of the scene.

Could have been a CPT scheduling conflict. Maybe Sajam and Steve have a different deal that lets them miss days or events but James can't.

Zhi on TV should be interesting. At least it's late at night sometimes.

Yeah, it'll be interesting alright, although it more than likely we'll get a very watered down Zhi.

By far the best commentator from those 4, followed by Sajam.

How about no Zhi at all? That'd be much better.

Ryu didn't click for him at all in SFV, even in S1 when he was high tier. Daigo should have tried someone else long ago.

there was also that incident with that gief player last year that made her look awful.

What world do you live in? If I could make hundreds of dollars off selling a book, you bet I would? Are people like you for real?

Or maybe it's that I don't ride a white horse and see things differently from down here...

And yeah missing people like Art, who's been working hard for years and a guy that's real good in Chris G, was a mistake imo

What she did isn't wrong but generally speaking people just don't like scalpers.
