    Dallas is supposedly considering selling or releasing Taimou/Cocco too, which makes sense but is still somewhat sad to see.

    They'd be on the right track then. Next up after them should be Chips and Harry.

    well it looks like xqc might be headed to SFS... danteh and Super were at his place this morning, getting ready to clean up and he shut off his stream. can't say i think that is a smart decision, but they are one of the better non korean teams in the league up there with PAF and LAV so I guess I'll have to trust their judgment on that one if its legit.

    this league is so weird lol

    danteh could have been trolling but SFS has also only announced support/dps signing. it's possible they could be exploring the possibility of signing him.

    edit: nope, signed Architect, ChoiHyoBin and Moth.

    Pretty sure xQc is moving, possibly back to Canada. He's 100% full time streamer and even though SF would work him out and he has friends there, no one will want to deal with drama due to costs for this first season. He's received multiple $1K plus donations in the 2 days since the announcement. I don't think he'll have issues. Won't make money like Ninja, but he's making money.

    I still think it's funny his team is like fuck this guy lets release him we need a new tank.

    OGE: HI AM OGE WILL LEAD TEAM TO VICTORY MYSELF SORRY IF TRANSLATOR BAD

    Fuel: fuck yea, this guy is gonna be solid. we'll finally be able to get back on our feet with a tank that isn't banned 24/7

    OGE: hold my beer

    Considering Sado is banned until Stage 4... uhhhhhh I think we can just call this karma, assuming that Blizzard doesn't go and prove how wishy washy and full of shit they are.

    Washington Post has an interview with XQC and they at least know what questions to ask.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.51da74e1c939
    If you push a button that finds you a 'random group' and it gives you a random group of people with random skill and random knowledge then you have no right to complain that a 'random group' button did what it was designed to do. The fault lies in your inability to make friends to play with instead of relying on a button designed to be random. It is a 'random group' button, not a 'best of the best' button.

    Ninja/Shroud/Etc. is very few and far between. But having over 8k subs, ignoring donations even, he's making more each month than a lot of americans make in a year.

    Not a fan of gaming articles in general, but this one was good. Wish there were more like those (instead of the easy "moar money, psychic crisis alert, dangerous for health").

    I'm glad they also disclose the connection between Twitch and their paper, but you are absolutely correct. They are the first news outlet I've seen ask questions that matter and not jump over themselves to paint everything in the most negative light possible, without shying away from the reality that these things are offensive. On the whole, I hope more people see this because it is a much more balanced reporting than anything we've seen relating to xQc or OWL at all.

    WaPo tends to have some pretty savvy reporters, so this is great to see tbh.

    Unlike most other news they didn't basically call him racist which is nice.The "xQc repeatedly used an emote in a racially disparaging manner on the league’s stream and on social media" by most media without looking into it was quite annoying, because A) he didn't use it in a "racially disparaging manner" to begin with, unfortunately it was just construed that way, and B) it wasn't repeatedly, other people were spamming it he wasn't. But all people see when they read it is "dis guy racist! ARRRRRR"

    Like... here's the emote:

    Yeah, it was sad to see how many 'legitimate' news sites were tripping over themselves to have clickbait, SJW titles saying he was a 'fag hating racist' at every moment.

    Yea, and it's not even about liking/not liking the guy. People see this shit and now EVERY gamer is racist, its just the way it works with the uneducated masses of people who still see gamers as sweaty basement dwellers.
