Many people will be def rooting for ChocoBlanka. I know my gf will at least. Maybe someone could sign BurnYourBra and whoever beat her in that femme fatale thing to bring in more female players and spectators? I know at this moment they aren't near as good as sponsored pros, but they might draw a crowd on their gender alone. Plus being signed might really help their game which is already an uphill battle from what I read in Burn's testimony. And that might even make a girl gamer like her a crowd favorite- everyone loves a crowd favorite at a tournament.

Pretty much all girl gamers I know actually really like watching female players play SF4 and hoping they "beat the guys". Obviously men do too when the girl is hot, lol. And these female players enjoy it and understand it despite not even SF players!! They play Halo and RE and whatnot. More females + our scene = we all win. So good for our player AND spectator scene.

I hope IPW streams MMs between Chocoblanka, Burnyourbra and Kayane at Evo afterhours.

Most prolly consider Chocoblanka to be the best female gamer, but I'm sure Burnyourbra and Kayane improved a lot since last year, should be a good match!

@Raye Kayane is already sponsored by LLL LowLandLions, same team as Ryan Hart and I think BurnYourBra is with DMG
