um I would like to say this
during the course this competition
people seem to forget something about this which is that this is real money
We have raised... I don't even know what the rest of the games are but just between
the two of our games we raised
a hundred and... fifty? sixty?
thousand dollars for breast cancer research. that is absolutely amazing
and that was due... and I guess if you add in ST that's like two hundred thousand
oh yeah, you're right, we can't add. 170. thank you the person back there who can add.
so that's well over two hundred thousand dollars probably over 210
yeah, for breast cancer research. as a fighting game community
that is absolutely amazing. and I would like to thank the members of
all the different communities for doing that. and I also want to say this:
the fighting game community has a unique history...
I guess I should probably be facing the room but whatever there's... two... there's there's
forty of you
there's... yeah, there's more people in the camera. alright. so here we go
as... as, I guess, spokesperson for Skullgirls
of course I would like to be the first person to say EVO should allow
both games in, hello, and I would say that even if we won,
but that has nothing to do with what i'm talking about. what I'm talking about is this:
the fighting in community has a unique history. which is like sports teams, right?
you are the worst enemies when you're playing against another person, but when
you are the best the friends. and I saw a bunch of hate go on from both
communities - actually not both, all the communities -
during the course of this contest so I would like to remind everybody that at
the end of the day
we are all part of the fighting game community. whatever game you like,
whatever games you hate, the players of those games
are exactly like you. they put in work, they put in practice, they put in
training, they put in sweat
and they came there and they donated for this because they really liked it.
so, at EVO, since
uh, Smash is in the lead and the contest is now over,
at EVO I would like to remind everybody to treat the Smash players
with respect. because they deserve it as much as you do,
and I don't wanna see the... the kinda reception that smash has been getting at
EVO in the past.
um... that was pretty much the end of it, because remember, we are
a community at the end of the day and as a community,
we raised a ton of money for breast cancer research... I almost said breast cancer
I alwa... I do that a lot. so
even if we didn't win we all did something amazing
and you need to remember that and also I used to have hair.
