Grant didn't really get hired until after he quit drinking and, at least publicly, being an rear end in a top hat tho.

Too bad he was still harassing people bad enough that they needed to go to court and he was still getting jobs.

All the while, some people on reddit think it's ok because the victim was a bad caster.

tournament and event organizers need codes of conduct that explicitly specify that this stuff is not okay, and to not hire people who violate those standards. Without in anyway saying this behaviour is excusable, it's certainly predictable, and the lack of guidelines explicitly spelling out unacceptable behaviour (and penalties for breaking those boundaries) contributes to that.

Do you really need a code of conduct which says " don't drug and sexually assault people"? Because if you do, I think you might has well just burn it all to the ground and give up.

Everyone who's spent 5 mins watching Tobi knows that he's a creep; 30 secs if it involves "Droe Ranger" or a female cosplay artist but this sounds pretty more worse than that.

I've only gained about 38 levels with 80% of the first cavern.

I forgot about bets at the start of games so if you're good at winning, there's a few levels there.

Zyori is just a terrible caster personal behaviour aside. He constantly says the wrong thing and then back paddles furiously when his co-caster disagrees/corrects him.

This was my thought. He's deluded if he thinks I'd switch to his commentary over hearing sing watch his old friends play without the hypecast. Or that I'd know his tournament is going on at all.

Sponsorships or something? Idk

It's naive to think that there would be absolutely no sing or gorgc viewer who wouldn't switch over to the official stream if that was the only way to watch.

Also, sponsors don't like the fact that they've paid good money for a tournament and half of the viewers don't see any of their ads because of unofficial streams. It's the reason why the only people willing to sponsor Dota 2 are mainly gambling sites (other companies like Mercedes have agreements with ESL as a whole across all the games they cover).

its cool that Valve just pocketed that Compendium money. the upcoming major is 500k when they used to be 1 mil so what are they gonna do, pretend they never got 40 mil for TI10?

Hopefully by not cheapening out on arrangements for the Major.

Bigger orgs where the teams are together in a team house are also probably easier to enforce a quarantine just because they are all together. How many of those teams are all playing at different places. Or, poo poo, for how many of them is a total quarantine just not doable? Living with parents/roommates/relatives who aren't also able to quarantine? Like poo poo, I know one person who played in the NA Quals who needed a sub called in for him because he couldn't get out of work to get to one of the games. No way he'd be able to do a real quarantine.

Maybe Valve could use some of the 40m prize to pay for qualified teams to "quarantine" themselves in a teamhouse/hotel for 2 weeks before travel.

The real shitshow will be if anyone tests positive while at the Major.

ESL changed the rules and sent an email out to all the teams saying that coaches are now allowed in game so notail is just being a baby.

just because you can doesnt mean you should be able to lol. you werent before and who the gently caress can say why the poo poo changed. its loving moronic that teams with money to pay for a coach get to play 6v5 against teams that dont.

I'm not saying it should be allowed.

Just that notail is being a baby and idiot for not reading the email that ESL apparently sent out to everyone explicitly saying that this was now allowed and then for him to start crying about it on Twitter.

Edit: I understand no battle pass for TI10 but I would've liked to seen one to support the T2 and T3 teams in the lower division DPC leagues.

It's what noxville said on reddit and confirmed by some guy who's the twitter manager for No BH...

I agree it should be against the rules. Itd be bad enough even if he was just in the room, but if he was actually independently observing, that seems like a serious advantage.

But I understand, gotta make a crutch for these weak European teams.

If they rely on it too much, then they'll get negatively impacted on LAN where coaches aren't allowed in game.
