Yeah, is anyone really surprised? He's clearly obsessed with himself to a ridiculous degree.

Guys on June 28th I'm gonna play the $1570 satellite into the $25,300 satellite into the $1,000,000 WSOP event. If I win all 3 of those events I'm gonna make it rain on some SC2 pros in a special slow speed played but sped up to regular for viewing event. Will have sickest micro and sickest first place price of any SC2 tournament ever. Poor banelings will get picked off by sieged tanks even harder.

Itís 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 Iíve only met him once and on that occasion he put his hand in my face and told me he wouldnít talk to me. Iím not a fan, I donít drool over what he does, I think if he did it in any other industry other than e-sports heíd be deemed fairly average. I wasnít 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 Iím 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 Iím wrong and people who are threatening to hit me. Even with that last option Iíll talk civilly and Iíd be astounded, genuinely, if you could find many people out there who could say Iíve 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. Thereís no status and no celebrity. Weíre just guys.

Many people approached me after that rudeness to make apologies for him. Then I asked around and found out it wasnít an isolated incident, that at events where heíd worked heíd been behaving like a prima donna, that heíd 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 itís obvious based on what Iíve heard that heís 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 heíll lose any sleep about anyone criticising him because heís in an unassailable position. Still, I canít abide people who think theyíre some kind of rock star because they are a big deal in e-sports. Frankly, itís embarrassing.

Didn't see that coming </sarcasm>

Also Karak get off D3 and give me my account back

Who was that guy? Did he have a press pass or something?

I mean, it's completely believable and may even be probable that day 9 is a huge douche IRL, but for him to treat a fan like this makes no sense. Having a gazillion fanboys is imperative to his success as a caster and his profits for his company. He seems smart enough to realize this and to not be doing ridiculously stupid things such as that.

Even Idra's getting in on this train (kinda). He's asked about people who get bad press in esports and deserve it, and Day9 is mentioned. ~48minutes if you don't want to watch the whole video, but I think it's interesting (it's JP's new "Real Talk" show).

He probably is a douche IRL and was having a particularly bad day when this guy met him

Not sure any of you know Dylan Moran, but IRL, he's an incredibly shy, introverted, quiet and bashful guy. Actually that shouldn't have been as surprising to me as it was looking back on it.

Basically I am fairly sure that this is common amongst 'celebrities' at all levels of fame.

All I need to know is, in order to keep the faith, is that White-Ra is as awesome deep down as on the surface....
