this is a really interesting piece, and something Nate and I talked about the other day. On one hand, Abit has tied up a lot of money in Fatality, and for him to lose so soon after signing on is a bad omen.

Fatality (can’t be bothered working out the numbers/letters thing), ‘loses’ a match, to an up and coming Chinese gamer, in Abit’s big push into China, and holy smoke, they hire him on the spot. “
