Yay finally on the plane \o/
I don't care if it's extortionate, First Class is worth the money if only for the reclining chair and fold out full size desk to work at.
Soon as we''re in the air I can test how bad the latency is with plane wifi playing starcraft lol.
Regarding Idra; I think the problem is that he was too comfortable with his persona. It didn't matter who he pissed off before, or how much he raged - he was getting viewers, thousands of them.
Why would he change who he was while he was getting attention, and more importantly money from it. InControl said he was getting psychiatric help for his behaviour, so he obviously knew it was becoming a problem, and maybe he just didn't think due to how permissive EG had been about his attitude, that he was a dispensable asset?
I don't think he intended his comment to be taken as blunt as it obviously was recieved, and when i first heard of his dismissal my only thought was "Well, he deserves this".
Then i saw:
It's obvious he does like the people who support him, and i kinda feel sorry for him now having actually seen the Idra that isn't the starcraft Idra.
I think he just snapped honestly as there's been an increase in trolling around him recently, but you can't help but feel he deserved the trolling either. He probably didn't intend the comment to be received as it was, and probably expected it to be received as the usual BM.
In any case i'm SURE he won't go without a job for long. If he doesn't continue with starcraft, I can see him being involved with game development somewhere, or going to University. Geoff said he had a comfortable bank anyway which will cover him. Iirc, he was supposed to have saved basically all his tournament winnings over the years and just lived off his stream/salary, even banking some of that, so it's not like he'll go to the streets because of this. He'll be fine i'm sure. Can only wish him luck in finding something that suits him.
