Yea but if you ever watched Orb stream you know he was 100% guilty.
I don't think it should matter as it's his personal stream, you have a choice whether or not to watch it and it has a content warning on it, but hey some people get butthurt over stuff that doesn't matter.
It's not like he's shouting racial epithets while he was casting matches. He was a decent caster.
Yeah I like orb. Prior to the "getting fired from EG" incident I knew almost nothing about him. But after hearing about the controversy and then hearing him talk on SotG (which he was quite impressive on, from a political standpoint) I decided to check out his stream and casting. So he gained at least one fan out of that whole incident.
I still think he really handled the whole thing wrong though. He should have completely denied the accusations and attacked the credibility of the replays. If the same thing had happened to me I would have been up all night figuring out how to modify the message logs in replays. If your really awesome job is at stake you don't hold anything back.
can someone plz explain to me the d3 hype? It looks like WoW, but without the freedom to do whatever the **** you want...which is the whole point of these games i thought.
Hack n slash RPG -- unlike a MMO, you can solo most/all the content. The fun comes from customizing your character (what skills you like, upgrading gear) and the difficulty of getting past certain zones/bosses.
Do you truly (truly) dislike Day or are you just upset that he ignored you at DreamHack? z1n0
It’s absolute e-sports career suicide to come out and say anything bad about him. He has become the ambassador for SC2, has become a bankable broadcaster and has made himself a tidy sum of money because he was in the right place, in the right time, doing the right thing. Now I’ve only met him once and on that occasion he put his hand in my face and told me he wouldn’t talk to me. I’m not a fan, I don’t drool over what he does, I think if he did it in any other industry other than e-sports he’d be deemed fairly average. I wasn’t trying to get an autograph. It was a hello from one member of the press to the other. This qualifies as the single rudest person I've met in e-sports... I mean, talk to the hand? What the ****?
Now, when I go to events I’m approached just the same by all sorts of people. People who want to be unbanned, people who want my opinion about their ****ty little mix team, fellow writers who want me to have a look at their stuff, gamers who have heard rumours about me, people who want to tell me to my face why I’m wrong and people who are threatening to hit me. Even with that last option I’ll talk civilly and I’d be astounded, genuinely, if you could find many people out there who could say I’ve been rude to them. Even people I have cross words with usually end up on a night out with me as way of an apology. E-sports is a small, small place. There’s no status and no celebrity. We’re just guys.
Many people approached me after that rudeness to make apologies for him. Then I asked around and found out it wasn’t an isolated incident, that at events where he’d worked he’d been behaving like a prima donna, that he’d been extremely rude to people who were paying him to work for them. No-one wants to believe it because of how he comes across in his little Youtube videos but it’s obvious based on what I’ve heard that he’s a phony, as fake as those crocodile tears he likes to sporadically burst into whenever he feels he needs to prove just what a nice caring guy he is.
I doubt he’ll lose any sleep about anyone criticising him because he’s in an unassailable position. Still, I can’t abide people who think they’re some kind of rock star because they are a big deal in e-sports. Frankly, it’s embarrassing.
