I am no expert but I am 100% sure that Aspergers is on the autism spectrum and not the other way around. But, yeah, Thorin might have Aspergers but I honestly don't see why that matter. It is just a personality trait. It is not like a serious psychological disorder such as Cerebral Pares or even a minor one such as ADHD.

Holy crap, people are so sensitive! It's jokes man. I had a great laugh just reading that article. I wouldn't care if he made jokes about Denmark. If they're insulting ones then I'd just see the truth to them (If there is any) and laugh. That Poland one was great btw and still truthful. I think the luminosity one is the only one I've seen that really crosses the line.

i dont really know what vice is, i found that article on twitter and im not offended by this but whatever..

then why post it lol
2019-02-18 21:14
to share this? inform someone?
2019-02-18 22:55
inform about what? irrelevant shitheads making an article you dont even agree with? so either you are dumb as fuck or ingenuine.
2019-02-18 23:07
and when i said that i dont agree with this article hm
2019-02-19 07:10
So what is your point????
2019-02-19 01:52
sometimes acts too edgy i guess, but anyone who talks a lot of shit is not gonna be liked, that's just how it is.
2019-02-18 07:58
guess so, I think people should just stop being giant pussies and learn to take some criticism though...
2019-02-18 08:00
just remember there's a distinct difference between criticism and being obnoxious you should ask #21
2019-02-18 08:07
I personally dont like him because he is full of himself, bans anyone who criticizes him on twitter, has a really really annoying voice. Thinks he is hilarious when he is just embarrassing to us brits. dont get me wrong, he knows his shit about CS, but then again, its not exactly difficult, just for most people CS is a hobby

2019-02-18 07:47
I pretty much echo what NA_MAJOR_WINNERS said, but I think Thorin’s way too pretentious. He prefaced every other statement with “the thing people don’t realize is” or “people will forget that...” like he’s some sort of omnipotent CSGO God. And then he just says something relatively obvious that everyone has realized.

Why? Bcs I told you my opinion on someone that ruins players career and is invited to analyze games even tho he prefers one team and one player only? (Astralis, Simple) Analysts should have objective opinions. And his accent Is hard to listen to

You even admit it yourself. Your opinion. Thoorin is just direct. Not biased. If he thinks s1mple is great, then he'll say so and then later elaborate why he thinks so. And no, he doesn't prefer one team or player only. You're the one who attacks a personality without any ground behind it other than you think so. Also, you write very aggressively with much anger which just amplifies your appearance of being biased.

Denmark MeToxi 
Why do you think there is 2 analysts and a host? Then there'll be different points and views on the matter. They're there to analyze what will happen/did happen with some of their subjective opinion. Objectivity is not an on/off thing, it is a slider from objective to subjective. Analysts is somewhat towards objective but still close to the middle. Chad brings both, sean brings both, pimp brings both and thorin brings both. Thorin just doesnt have a filter which is what makes him different from others.
2019-02-18 20:34
there is no such thing as a objective oppinion, the meaning of oppinion is it is subjective. like wtf are you talking. data is objective ( not always). oppinions cant be objective
2019-02-18 14:53
#86

Czech Republic potruss 
Thats why analysts should not bring their opinion to the desk and should discuss mistakes and good decisions for both teams and all players. Thorin doesnt do that so He shouldnt be invited to the desk. About his tweets, sometimes he is just baiting but sometimes he acts in a really arrogant way to the players and the community. But Its his opinion and and he can Tweet whatever He wants. It just shouldnt be taken seriously
2019-02-18 18:49
but analysts dont discuss mistakes and good decisions they discuss their oppinion on certain situations. i could even go further and say that for you a good decision is a bad one for me. again its just oppinion.
2019-02-18 20:16
1) if analysts dont bring their opinion they have nothing left to talk about. interpreting stats is always based on subjective metrics 2) He can act arrogant cuz he can back it up.

Terrible analyst due to lack of skills and gamesense, since he never been close to a pro level. Other than that i love Thorin. He makes fun jokes, not afraid to say something controversional and have an entertaining personality. I would like to see Thorin at as many events as possible.

He's been getting worse. Now he's beginning to sound like those crazy prophets that you see on street corners shouting about the end of the world with his bullshit about 'greatness.' 'Strive for nothing but greatness.' Dude has delusions of grandeur. Thinks that he's achieving something great talking about games from his bedroom. Other than that dunno, he's not really an analyst as such. As in he never analyses CS or any other game. He invents storylines to make games seem 'epic.'
2019-02-18 08:50
What do you strive for, to live your life just as another human and achieve nothing of value? I don't get it why you're opposing someone striving for something.

I think people should not blow their own horn, be humble, do what it is they do and let their work speak for itself.
2019-02-18 14:34
That's cart before horse. Beign humble is just one of ways to deal with inevitability of mistakes you're going to make. There are other ways to cope with it than walking on egg shells and beign afraid to speak.
2019-02-18 14:38

That makes 0 sense. Being humble has nothing to do with mistakes. It's about knowing that there is always room for improvement no matter how good you are at something.
2019-02-18 14:40
Knowing that there is room for improvement doesn't mean that you should express doubt in your current assumptions and knowledge. If you don't put money where your own mouth is, then nobody else will put money there either.

Modest and shy are two different things. You are describing the latter.
2019-02-18 16:45
That's my point, the purpose of modesty is to avoid and subvert potential consequences of failure. Also it's optional, it's not the only valid way to conduct yourself. You don't be modest it because it's necessary moral virtue, because it can fuck you up if you aren't.
2019-02-18 16:58

2019-02-18 12:03
his long, self-absorbed monologues are a fucking pain listen to. he does know a lot generally, but cant properly analyse the game because he hadn't played a match in his life.

It's easy to just give up and start taking it easy, I'd love to know the secrets of becoming able to do this. I also love his banter persona that is able to keep him challenging and analyzing people and ideas around in entertaining yet truthful manner. Strikes right balance between rationality and playfulness.

Witty. Great speaker/thinker on the spot (extremely good). Professional. I respect him a lot and love most of his content, especially in collaboration with others in forms of podcasts or desk segments. Was very entertaining in "put up or shut up" series, e.g. being forced to defend a point that Santa Claus is real against Moses, sad they abandoned this project.

He overestimates himself and acts pretty arrogant and disrespectful, which makes me wanna hate him, but honestly his knowledge is still insane. And it's not like that he makes something up without any reason.
2019-02-19 15:51
i think that people need to realise the when thorin is on camera hes putting on a persona and the fact hes got all this heat from things hes said in the past only only adds to that persona. At the end of the day the jokes he makes are edgy, they're meant to offend people. It's just like Idubbbz and other edgy content creators, people like him BECAUSE he is edgy. At the end of the day the guy has great banter and a great mind for not only cs but other esports titles and to not put him on the desk at ANY event is really disappointing to see because he brings so much to the desk not only from an analytical perspective but an entertainment one as well. poeple just hate on him because he speaks his mind and doesn't conform to the industry norms.
