We only support brazilian teams. I cant see any brazilian insulting other nations cuz they support their teams
2016-02-29 16:50:01
yes normal people aim at being liked and respected

can't expect anything normal from a favela monkey obviously

you know which people proclaim themselves as big at something, mr.big shit talker? those with little penis

nice 1 m8
2016-02-29 16:59:16
Being liked and respected by 15yo nerd guys from arrogant places is irrelevant
2016-02-29 17:05:03

Children are naive and speak anything

WTF MIRAA, stop calling these tournaments male tournaments? There is no rule that says it's for men only (unlike, female tournaments which are restricted).

i think he did so because there will be some "special" female tournament at katowice.

or he/she is trying to imply csgo players/staff are sexists and doesnt want females in the scene.

Post edited 2016-02-26 21:25:55
2016-02-26 21:25:19
Yeah, but that doesn't automatically make this is a "male only" tournament.
2016-02-26 21:26:17
Have you ever seen a single woman in big tournament like this with big teams? So I dont think it is bad to call it a male tournament. He wrote that obviously in order to tell apart this from a female tournament also taking place in Katowice at that time. No reason to be salty
2016-02-26 21:48:47
It's irrelevant if a woman has ever played in these tournaments. Other than being technically incorrect, it gives ammunition to so-called-feminists that "male tournaments" have huge prize money and females are oppressed in e-sports and have smaller prize pools and how they're sexist.


I've had enough of feminists fucking with video games, I just want us (CS community) to play it right and play it safe when it comes to these things.
2016-02-26 21:53:26
Alright :)
Btw its sexist than women actually have their special female only tournament and men must attend unisex one. I feel oppressed :>
2016-02-26 22:10:42
doesnt work that way in their feminist world buddy.
2016-02-26 22:22:14
Who knows but feminist what is in their world?
2016-02-28 00:15:57
You probably shouldn't be calling him out in public but you're 100% right
2016-02-27 11:01:56
I did try just PMing him last time (screenshot is from the CPH games post) instead of calling out in public, but that didn't catch his attention. Seems like it's no different this way either.
