The stream
The stream was smooth. No lag at all. This's when you lower bit rate. I think it's good, because smooth LQ is better than lag HQ.

The biggest mistake is, in day 1, they used the worst commentators known to Street Fighter. Magus (glasses wearing Chun-Li player) and Darry (if I'm not mistaken) showed too little knowledge and they cannot entertain, especially Darry who randomly shouted what he thinks is cool. They had James Chen, Mike Ross, and JuiceBox around but they only put them on shortly. Surprisingly, JuiceBox is a good commentartor which is new to me. In the second day, however, they replaced them with S-Kill, Chen, and JB, THANK YOU.

In the first day, Umehara was on the stream only 2 times in SF4 singles. If I knew I wouldn't bother staying up that long. (sleepy+bad commentators) No one updated the bracket information until the top 8 was decided.
