Edit: About JWong's donation, I interpreted it as him trying to lead by example. Seeing a large donation by a well-known figure when things were getting down to the wire could potentially convince a few more people to throw in.
I honestly feel CEO and CEOtaku are the best events of the year now. ComboBreaker is another big one. EVO...it just always feels like there's event drama and issues getting folks to matches. Plus the energy is dead on Sunday because of the busy schedule and venue switch. Doesn't help that reserved seating means that folks no show most of the day making the "giant arena" feel more like there is less atmosphere than a crowded hotel had due to the giant empty sections filling it for most of the day.
Here's Saya from Saya no Uta as a playable character in Nitroplus Blasterz. She has stretchy long range normals both in the air and on the ground, a teleport, diveykicks, and a TON of annoying tools to eat up space. Enjoy her trolling the runway of a rushdown character called Ruili.
