"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.

Not sure if Iā€™m happy or what about that.

I already have a low opinion of FGC niggas on social media. Iā€™m really not tryna associate with them in real life.

What an embarrassing hobby to have.

You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

I need to check in on the SRK boards. A few people in the Tech Talk forum usually try to head to Evo every year for stick mods and to see the tourney and know quite a few of the competitors. Like to see their read on things.

Agreed, at this point burn it all and start again. I can't see getting hot and bothered by a high level Smash player, but I'm old, married and washed, so not in that kind of circle either.

A number of members never came back. A lot of the Tech Talk community went back to SRK only because of the archive of info that had been posted over the years. Still a few I keep in touch with, but it definitely isn't the same.

Now outside that particular forum? Wild Wild West.

TriForce wishes he could be on that level.

and I don't blame Sky for that many idiots giving him huge sums of money. FGC pyramid schemes are as old as the FGC itself.
