f0rest merc?
Is he asking us, in his stream, to remove our "popup add blocker" in our browsers when viewing his stream, so his own3D channel spyware adds can get more clicks and then he can get more money out of us?

When you thought he was doing this for the 1.6 scene, he is AGAIN doing it for money.

Why he play the game? Money
Why he does not do interviews? That doesn't give him money
Why is he streming? Money

This guy is a fucking merc. Money is important but it shouldn't be ALL ABOUT IT.

2012-02-18 16:58:56
You are saying it shouldn't be ALL about the money. Well, is asking people to remove adblocks ALL about the money? Don't you think playing the game he loves, travelling all around the world and experiencing new stuff every day weighs up for asking people to remove adblocks? geez..

The point is pretty much everything he does, has money involved, thats pretty much what makes you a merc, and thats the point here.

Every single popular streamer asks you politly to remove your ad-blocking software/turn it off so they can generate a tiny income from the ad's.

Now to be more specific the income on twitch.tv is something like $0.002 per viewer per advertisment, you have to have like 2000 viewers all without adblocking just to make anything....

Give him a break.

And yes he probably got paid for that as well, who gives a ****.
2012-02-18 17:31:55
jesus, look at that shit... he was obviously paid for that one, you can tell just by looking at it. Anyway, he did some free interviews too, but the point is he did very little of them, their fans always asked for more, and he never did. I think he did one "free" interview in 2010 - 2011 period. Thats pretty sad for the fans.

And NO CS player out there does this for the community. Maybe cArn but thats it.

2012-02-18 18:02:14
I really don't see how this could even make one single person angry?

One of the best players in the world is dedicating his private time to bring entertaining and interesting content for free.

He's not asking you to pay a monthly subscription, nor does he force you to turn off any Adblocker at all. He simply asked to give something in return if you like what he does.

If it's really too much asked to turn off your Adblock for 1 Minute after every 30 - 45mins he streams you seriously have a problem with values.

And to say he doesn't care about the community is simply wrong. By streaming hours, inviting community members to play with him ( yesterday) and even answering questions on irc extensively makes him obviously a really bad person ;D

f0rest, y u so evol!?

Do your stream and earn money ? It's everything about money, always was and always will be. Easy enough to understand.

Oh, greedy kids. Does he demand money to watch his stream? No.
You should disable addblock if you're enjoying stream. You're basicly helping another person by doing nothing, why not?
2012-02-18 18:07:06
Yeah , really retarded thread... So what if he streams for money ?? do you think he makes a fortune playing Cs ? I find it very intressing to watch, And who the hell care if he does it to earn a few extra bucks.
2012-02-18 18:11:38
Streaming might be one of the reasons he will stay in cs - It's not like hes earning an amazing salary with advancement options is it?

Jelly fucks are jelly. If you're good at something, never do it for free. Stop living in a fantasy world where money doesn't matter. Money is everything, was everything and will be everything. Knock those good deeds illusions out of your dumb heads and instead take note of his actions and perhaps learn something.

Money saves you, but doesn't give you health, and it only gives you a moment of happiness, not something for mid/long term. You really need to grow up or go outside and see the world. There are people with full of money, but they aren't happy. And there are people full of money and they are ill most of the time. Money isn't everything, many countries in Europe don't care if you are rich, they apply the laws on you. British people can tell you, I've seen many rich people being pwned by the British law and they didn't care if those sheiks have tons of money.

2012-02-18 21:42:42
Remind yourself of these words in 15 years when you're eating out of garbage cans. Using cliches about rich and unhappy people is also another myth used by losers. Realize that all of these cliches are in the world so poor people can feel good about themselves. Get your head out of your ass and look around you, what the fuck can you actually have without money? Living in a fantasy world will only give you an illusion of happiness. Also, since you're so keen on the British, 33.000£ will be the lowest possible amount an immigrant can earn in a year otherwise they get deported, now go live of love and free air, see how far it takes you.

About what I said, it isn't a myth for crying sake. You made me laugh about this. That's a fact, and a reality, money can't bring you happiness nor health, and money isn't everything in this world. And this doesn't mean I'm living in an imaginary world where I make myself happy when I say those things, those are facts, and has been proven along the time. Anyone here who's mature enough can agree with me. You should be the one looking around yourself. I have never said you must not work hard to earn yourself a good living. I just said that money isn't everything in the world, and this is, sadly for you, a fact. Just accept the reality, no need to be mad at it. And this is my final post to a low minded "character".

2012-02-19 15:15:26
My thoughts are:

Most people earn a living through going to work and grinding the 8 hour day, at the end you get a decent amount of money.

For people such as f0rest, its through advertisement, sponsorship, winning tournaments and of course the small amount they receive from their team contract.

It can almost be safely said that anyone working full time makes a lot more than f0rest does playing counter-strike. So why not just have the adds display and help him out a little? It does not bother me in the slightest having the add's come up at the start and during break, I mean it also has a mute button for the add in the bottom left corner and you can just alt tab and do something else.
2012-02-18 23:05:25
How stupid can you be?
People by this age have jobs, they earn money, so what if he wants to earn some money from this?
I say it's completely justified. He is a pro player, it's easy to say "it shouldn't be all about money" when you play on public servers.

It doesn't cost you ANYTHING to watch right? So what difference does it make? So long as it's free, why can't he use a way to make money? I don't understand.

Wow, you are so ignorant.
2012-02-22 17:45:58

If you noticed i haven't forced anyone to do it... i just said it maybe 1-2 times. So it doesn't gives you rights to claim "him" being merc.

whats the problem? u think he plays for free or what?
2012-07-03 18:34:12
But guys, because you didnt give him money from streaming, CS is dead. Every tournament organisation watch stream numbers.
2012-07-03 18:34:59
Sounds like someone is jealous because he makes money doing something he loves. Don't be so selfish, put yourself in his position. If he wasn't streaming, we wouldn't be entertained. I'm happy to turn off my adblock so he can make a few bucks off of me. Does it cost you anything to watch his stream? I don't think so. Is it you paying him? I don't think so.
Get over it.
2012-07-03 18:43:14
sponsorship in streaming works on ADS ....so thats why he asks you to turn of popup blocker .....stop being retarded please....its not like he's asking you to give him money out of your pocket....

2012-07-03 18:56:39
you think that pros playing for you? for community? LOL :D
2012-07-03 18:58:30
He streams cs for people that want to watch professionals play, and maybe learn some tricks? It doesn't cost YOU anything, he just makes a small sum of money to buy stuff like streaming programs and maybe promote SK-gaming in a good way.

2012-07-04 14:58:02
OMG U STUPID RETARD. 2 options - stream + money and stream + no money. ofc he will like it better to earn money while streaming u stup .. a aa a a a a a a a fuk this
2012-07-04 15:01:20
Why do you work? MONEY
It's not like he's asking us to donate, you simply turn of the adblocker and get some ads while enjoying his stream. Simple!
