"the FGC just cancelled itself. especially Smash."


          

blow-up Tuesday went 2020 this past week.

all fighting games pulled out of EVO online after allegations that Mr. Wiz (who has run EVO with the Cannon brothers) solicited creepy pictures/nudes from guys since forever. EVO cancelled and Mr. Wiz fired.

that would be crazy enough. but this SMASH BROTHERS SHIT?

it started when one player, Puppeh (I don't know most of them because fuck Smash FGC) announced that he was sexually assaulted when he was 14 by a prominent player/commentator (Cinnpie; she was 24 at the time). this is them at a tournament back then: https://twitter.com/CentumSomnia/status/1278449972086812674?s=20

then an avalanche of sexual assault shit flooded Twitter. another top player sexually assaulted a player who was a minor (20 years old and 15 years old). Zero, who won EVO, sending a bunch of sexualized messages to a fan that was in 9th grade (he was 20). one girl raped by a prominent commentator after a tournament. and so on. there's now basically a who's who list of Smash Bros FGC members who are being called out:

https://www.reddit.com/r/smashbros/comments/hjfv0y/summary_of_sexual_and_nonsexual_allegations/

a lot of this shit goes back to Sky Williams' house, where apparently a bunch of Smash players lived (not atypically from FGC/E-Sports houses). problem is, minors were ALWAYS THERE and the top players/commentators were basically a group of predators who got them drunk (some of these fuckers are 30+ years old! this ain't some "just graduated HS" shit). I always thought that was a weird thing with Smash FGC, how it was normalized that young teenagers were running in the same circle as adults. more so than most scenes.

fucking hell. no wonder Nintendo never wanted to associate themselves with these foul-smelling criminals.
