I'm absolutely not watching anything from WCG, or involving Dignitas in any way.

Not laundered streams, not jacked streams, not recordings, nothing. This nonsense doesn't deserve viewer support.

The entire ordeal has very much soured the idea of "competitive gaming" for my palette. If this is what the gaming scene has to look forward to, we may as well rewind things to 1995 status. Egghead software, games are for nerds in basements, etc.

This is BAD press for gaming.

Naw, this just makes you a weirdo and kind of a liar. Why purposely ruin a poll? People may be quite serious about avoiding this debacle of a tournament.

Yeah, everyone watch through Dyrus/Regis streams. Give them the money WCG would have gotten for ads!


The advertisers pay the servers up front. At that level, it's not the Youtube "Pay per viewer" deal that mom-and-pop streams get, and they'll still get money from sponsors and advertisers at the event itself. Do what you gotta do, but I think they're getting their money back by you watching teh event period.

That's why we send them messages to make them reverse their final decisions so that don't half to boycott them in the first place.

This is exciting. I haven't pledged to anything since the American flag in elementary school.
