Revelations 2012, a major fighting game tournament taking place in Santa Monica this year, is underway this weeknd featuring some of the best players in the U.S. including Justin Wong, Ryan "Filipino Champ" Ramirez, and Ricky Ortiz. One game, King of Fighters XIII, will not have a tournament played this year due to players walking out after the tournament organizer, John Nelson of Tournament Legacy, was unable to confirm that there was going to be a $3000 guaranteed pot as advertised.
King of Fighters XIII player, Oscar "The Answer" Oyarzabal, Nelson, explained the events during a stream on his Twitch channel, TheAnswerKOF(video below). Four to five weeks ago, Nelson contacted Oyarzabal regarding putting on a KOF XIII tournament at Revelations 2012, stating that there would be a guaranteed pot of $3000-5000. Oyarzabal agreed to help promote and run the KOF XIII tournament saying him and other players can gather 40-50 players to compete in the tournament. Nelson agreed, and made the guaranteed pot for the event $3000.
