LOL I wish people knew the real story. I can't wait to hear the podcast.
There was no bracket manipulation whatsoever. The brackets were done, and nobody threw matches or anything of the sort. This is what happened from what I experienced.
"What happened in Vegas/Why I left vVv

Here's the facts from the drama.
Jason said he would split with Lee, Ally, and I. $6,000 between the four of us. Elliot needed money for something private. I needed money for a $700 ticket and to fix my car that broke down two weeks ago. Lee needs money for school.
Fatal, Chibo, and Cheese approached us at the hotel asking for a split (mind you this is after Cheese and Fatal lost a combine $500 in blackjack after the first night). They said they needed money (for traveling as they said). Nobody said anything, and they pushed for it and Jason said No. We all agreed (me ally and lee) that there was no point to split with them. including brilliant "why would we make $800 instead of $1,500?" logic.
After this, we met at the venue. Cheese, Chibo, and Fatal were all extremely mad. Fatal ended up beating M2K. Cheese tried to DQ people for the dumbest reasons.
He tried to DQ Ally for being Canadian, saying that "THIS COMPETITION IS ONLY OPEN TO US RESIDENTS HE'S FROM CANADA." After a half hour of arguing, the TO basically said that that it doesn't matter.
Cheese then tried to DQ Mew2king by saying "OH SO HOW'D YOU ENTER THE WIFI TOURNAMENT FROM AUSTRALIA? THERE'S NO WIFI THERE." Once again the TO didn't care.
Jason told Fatal "i'll give you $300 if you let me win, i dont really want to play" and Cheese told the TO "HE'S BRIBING ANOTHER PLAYER." the TO once again didn't care.
Cheese told the TO "THEY'RE SPLITTING THE MONEY," and i said "It's Jasons money to do whatever he wants."
One of the TO's said "matches will be 5 stock 8 minutes" and Cheese in hopes to time people out said that these rules were okay and got Chibo and Fatal to agree to these rules in hopes to run the clock and get revenge on us for not splitting.
Cheese cheered against me and talked hard **** when i played Chibo, even though we're all sponsored by the same company. I have been one of a few people to ever help him progress with good advice, and in game coaching at MLG's yet he decided to choose sides. Yes, I am salty, but that's because i've done so much for the kid and this is how he reacts.
I left vVv because I believe a Professional Organization should have players who act Professional in and out of the game. Players who add nothing but negative reputation to an organization should not be a part of said organization. nothing more to say.
to add on, i have nothing against Cheese, Chibo, or anyone from vVv for that matter. I don't hate anybody, but rather choose how i associate and communicate with people based on their past actions.
I'm sure vVv staff will sensor this post as well, but i guess you gotta do what you gotta do to mask the truth in an attempt to remain positive.
I just have never seen the logic behind having sponsored players who obviously add nothing but negative perception of vVv. If Cheese wasn't a part of vVv, you guys would have an all star line up of top level productive players with positive reputation.
There was no "bracket manipulation." Just kids being upset about not getting money that they thought they deserved (but didn't) The pot payout was top 2, not top 8.
