There's no need to boycott or pirate nintendo stuff. If this "legal team" is any sort of indicator of the decision making that's going on at Nintendo, they're gonna last long. This is one of the dumbest things a company has ever done. It's embarrassingly stupid.
It's quite simple, really. They reverse their decision. I'll reverse mine.

Sad, too. I was looking forward to buying Ace Attorney 5.

Totally disagree. We absolutely should punish the entire company for the actions of one employee. All employees compose the entity that is Nintendo. The action of banning streaming has deeper ramifications that you can possibly imagine. Why should I pour my heart and soul into growing the local smash community if it will only be cut down the instant it becomes slightly "too big"? Nintendo can throw around legal jargon all it wants. IP this. Rights that. The smash community goes out every day and brings people into the cause. We work tirelessly to learn everything about the game. We show others the depth and beauty of the game and convince them to buy the game. We want more people in the community. We do more good than Nintendo could ever know. This legal move only solidifies what we knew all along: Nintendo hates competitive players. Stripping Melee of its depth was not enough. Now, Nintendo has to act jealous of its own creation. Why didn't Brawl make it to EVO? Because people wanted Melee more. That doesn't bode well for an even newer smash game.

Nintendo can die in a fire. It's extra cowardly the way Nintendo has tried to silently kill the streams. Why not put out a blog post explaining its position? Why ignore the fans? Why not defend the decision?

Why not just HACK THE CRAP out of Nintendo! I'm talking something like the 2011 PSN hack! It will teach those dipsh*ts at Nintendo AN EXTREMELY VALUABLE LESSON! Actions have consequences! #freemelee

Because the only thing it'll teach Nintendo is that they need to beef up their security.

On a sensible point, there's been a petition made. Petitions don't hold much weight on their own, obviously, but every little counts, and the more the better.

This is pretty funny.

"Those jerks! They're jerks! *insert request for a international and federal crime* Actions have consequences!"

This sucks. To be honest broadcasting Smash at EVO is actually a good thing for Nintendo. Smash features characters from a plethora of Nintendo franchises, so in a way featuring Smash at EVO gives those series exposure and acts as free promotion for Nintendo.

I'm doubtful but I really hope Nintendo reconsiders.

Christ, I'm one of the least respected and least respectful people on this website and even my email to Nintendo was more mature than some of the **** going down in this thread. Come on everyone, let's get professional and ****.

Those of you who have a Wii U... you are spamming posts there too, right?

I understand that Smash got...smashed in terms of live streaming, and I sincerely doubt any complaining is going to work (I'll be sending an e-mail anyway to NoA regarding the decision and talking about the benefits of allowing Melee to be legally streamed at EVO), but I don't see any reason why EVO staff are taking Melee off Champion Sunday's line up. That's a HUGE burn for people who have already paid for the event/hotel rooms. Additionally, the Smash community wants as big an audience observing the Melee tournament as possible, even if it isn't going to be streamed; Melee is one of the most complex and in-depth games, if not THE most complex and in-depth game in competitive gaming history, and exposing the FGC to that on the big stage is a great opportunity for our game to receive more recognition as well as new members. Chances are that 90% of the people in the venue are going to be focusing on other games or tournaments while Smash finals are going on now because of the schedule change, and that's not hype.

EVO staff, if you're reading this, please put Melee back on Championship Sunday even if it won't be streamed. Make it the first event to play out if you have to, but as far as I know, there's no reason why Melee shouldn't be able to make an appearance on Sunday. I'm really happy that EVO took on Melee for its final game, and respect EVO and its staff, but I gotta draw the line here a bit. Do us some justice and keep it on the main stage!

and secretly record it and release it a month or two later, y'know? :D
