LEC "storm"

twitter.com/LEC/status/12884339188034109.. Even casters and other talents reacted to this: twitter.com/sjokz/status/128843955310426.. twitter.com/DanielDrakos/status/12884358.. twitter.com/EvenRodahl/status/1288442298.. twitter.com/Shakarez/status/128844983430.. Why on earth would LEC partner with some Saudi Arabia company(?) Anyone know more of this? I know a lot of talents etc will boycott LEC. Look at this tweet: twitter.com/Kalytis_/status/128844828000.. and LEC partnered with them I wonder what LEC will do now to save their asses.

do u really believe in that?
2020-07-30 04:49
Yes? lol. You think LEC would afford losing MILLIONS of fans and all the casters, analysts and what not? lol. Ofc i believe that they did it? They even stated so lol.

for the public, possibly. internally, i doubt it. this is just for people to stop crying on twitter. they are still swimming in the saudi oil dollar money

Bullshit. Worlds maybe bigger than csgo major. But a casual spring & summer split isn't bigger than csgo major. Maybe as equal as ESL one cologne or any tier 1 tournaments on csgo.

Riot Games had a company-wide walkout sometime last year due to harassment at their workplace and a sexist culture. kotaku.com/over-150-riot-employees-walk-.. theguardian.com/games/2019/may/07/riot-g.. theverge.com/2019/5/23/18629481/riot-wal.. latimes.com/business/technology/la-fi-tn.. Riot Games pump money into their games to keep the scene up and running, but they're not the best company by any means. They're hurting a bit right now and probably don't really give a shit anymore about where they get money from.

2020-07-30 03:52
That was a quick change of heart lmao. Will BLAST end their partnership with NEOM too?
2020-07-30 04:05
Yeah :P Ehm, i guess, but not sure atm.
2020-07-30 04:07
I sure hope so. I'm usually not one to give my opinion on things, but this is just distasteful - that a company would partner with another company despite knowing their bad reputation.
2020-07-30 15:18
Seems like BLAST is receiving some backlash as well: twitter.com/BLASTPremier/status/12881301..
2020-07-29 16:33

2020-07-29 16:36
well it doesnt really send a good message lmaooo..... So will all the tournaments be in Saudi and shit now?? So now gay and trans people are not allowed to go to Blast and LEC tournaments...... kinda fucked up if u ask me..... When they are saying gaming is for everyone and that all the time.....

2020-07-29 17:05

2020-07-29 17:09
Look at their Twitter bio most of the time...
2020-07-29 19:38
To awnser your question as to why: its infinite money for LEC and Blast even id its unethical
2020-07-29 16:36
Tldr?
2020-07-30 08:59
Best TLDR i could do mate, i know its long, but yeah. LEC partnered with Saudi Arabia prince Mohammed bin Salmans company called NEOM. And Saudi Arabia is known for the killings of homosexual people. Also cross-dressers, basically if you had women clothing as a male or female wearing men clothing, you can get punished with public whipping, chemical castrations, life in prison or death penalty. So, obviously all the talents/casters in LEC scene got upset with this and LEC stopped this collaboration about 12 hours after they announced it. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Sau..
2020-07-30 12:04
Why on earth would these idiots be surprised that a China owned platform has no ethical standing on political matters
2020-07-29 16:37
+1111 complaining about a saudi sponsorship as a broadcaster is pretty funny when you receive your monthly salary from a tencent-owned company. It should have been obvious that the pride stuff was only implemented because it sells well in the west, and nothing else
2020-07-29 16:42
I mean what is wrong? Are you racist or something?
2020-07-29 16:38
Well Saudi Arabia is against LGBT.... Many casters and fans are gay, trans.... and women arent equal at all in Saudi..... so ofc most people with a brain will react against this Saudi org/gourvenment partnershipping with LEC and Blast......
2020-07-29 16:40
I mean look at Football (the most successful sports in the world) It is only partnership, who cares. Afaik, the ladies' right is part of their culture, tradition. As long as they are happy, we should respect it
2020-07-29 16:43
I lost braincells reading this...... You clearly know nothing about the Saudi gourvenment and the NEOM org.... Never write your thoughts again, before you know the facts....
2020-07-29 16:45
I live in an Islam Country fyi
2020-07-29 16:46
EXACTLY.......
2020-07-29 16:47
So can you correct me there? I am not an Islam btw, I just know how they think
2020-07-29 16:47
Why would u even live there??? And what country btw?
2020-07-29 16:49
I am from Malaysia and it is a great country tbh I lived in UK for the past two years and I don't really like it there tbh
2020-07-29 16:51
Well.... idk about the "great country" part........ LGBT is illegal there... and you can get killed, tortured and sentenced for 20 years in prison for being gay and that.......... Women are far from equal to men as wel..... So "great country" is definetely an overstatement..... Malaysia can be decent for "normal" heterosexual men but not for anyone else.... And the standards in the country generally are bad compared to Europe....
2020-07-29 16:59
LGBT is illegal in a lot of country tbf and I thought people are allowed to have different thoughts? I doubt the torture, sentence part but LGBT is definitely not allowed because of their religion Malaysia as a 3rd world country provide the people free education and quick medical service(which I don't get and see at the UK) (but I might be biased since it is my country)
2020-07-29 17:04
well free medical service and free education is not unusual..... Norway has free education, free medical service, free dentist, free social service.... and at the same time we dont VIOLATE HUMAN RIGHTS.... like Malaysia literally violates all human rights there are..... I dont know why the UN or Nato or someone doesnt do anything..... women, gay people and so on are literally getting tortured and alll of that and the world does nothing.....
2020-07-29 17:19
I don't really know about other countries but they don't torture gay, lesbian in my country. You can kiss a guy at public and police will not arrest you or something. I don't know is that human right for you? and I thought free medical service and education were usual before I went to the UK but I know it is not after that.
2020-07-29 17:23
You cant know if they dont torture them....... they dont do it in the open street... are u stupid lmao.....
2020-07-29 17:24
I mean Gay/Lesbian don't get arrested in my country and two of my colleague are gay and they always do couple thing at the public and they are not getting arrested

Why does it not seem like he grew up there exactly? You know not everyone is priviliged enough to choose where to live and if he doesn't feel a dire need to live somewhere else, why even think about moving? Just because you feel like Europe is a better place to live in than Malaysia doesn't make it better. I myself know that there are countries out there where life might be better than here, but I wouldn't ever move out, mainly for the reason that I feel like this is my home, and I don't want to abandon it. Even if it would be terrible here, I would rather try to make it better than to run away.

No problem, happens to all of us. I understand that you're angry about it, but it's hard for these countries to accept our views. They lived like this for hundreds for years and adapting isn't easy, but it must happen. It will just take time and pressure from the outside world. I'm trying to point out that running away from your country isn't a solution, changing the country is.
2020-07-29 17:23
Well those countries wont be changed with the leaders they have now.... I dont see those countries moving forward, unless the UN or someone actually does something to get a proper leader and make them stop violating the human rights.... If the UN wont do anything, why is there even such a org as the UN....
2020-07-29 17:26
Can I ask you a question? Do you think the CCP is violating the human rights of China people?
2020-07-29 17:35
Dude what kind of reaction is that ?
2020-07-29 18:10
Can you provide me with what you know about the woman inequality in Saudi/ Middle East?
2020-07-29 16:55
Well women are literally fleeing from Saudi..... women are as far from equal to men as it gets..... Up on til 2018 they werent even allowed to drive a fucking car by themselves................................................................................ That says it all...... dont come here and try to protect that shit......
2020-07-29 17:04
I dont really want to protect that lol. I just wanted to know because I don't have any idea about that On top of that, thanks for the info
2020-07-29 17:06
1. Women are not free to travel or obtain passports Women cannot obtain passports without the approval of their male guardian. The family can have the courts force a woman home. 2. Women are not free to choose their own partner and spouse Also in order to get married, a woman must get approval from her male guardian. A man is free to marry and be married to up to four women at the same time. 3. Domestic violence 35 percent of all women in the country have been exposed to violence. The guardianship laws make it very difficult for women to report.
2020-07-29 17:05
This is just my opinion (I might be wrong so don't angry on this one) The laws do not look reasonable for me but I think it is part of the Islamic culture. I don't think they are using modern laws but their laws are based on Al-Quran or came from a previous Islamic empire
2020-07-29 17:13
yeah no shit its part of their culture.... its their stupid Sharia laws and whatever..... They are still living a thousand years back in time...... They are literally violating every Human right there is.........

Thats not the point. The point is that Mohammed bin Salman, the founder of NEOM basically beheads LGBT people and put them in prison. Do you think its smart for a company/league to partner with bin Salman? Not really, because its gonna recieve a lot of backlash, like we are seeing now.

2020-07-29 17:50
Its' more controversial, obviously. But if you started criticizing the Saudis for that kind of thing you'd have to start cutting ties with most regional and global powers. It's still not acceptable to have any kinds of limitations of homosexuality compared to heterosexuality. Especially when those limitations include MURDER.
2020-07-30 05:08
Do these idiots not realize that sponsorships are keeping their jobs afloat?
2020-07-29 17:52
another comment mentioned that but it is really hypocritical of them when their company is part owned by a chinese company who has a big brother that has people in concentration camps
2020-07-29 17:53
not saying that they are wrong they are right but not seeing similar reaction to that kinda dissappointing

2020-07-30 14:55
Just wondering why it’s so selective. That game is owned by a chinese company. We’ve seen all the reports about the genocide and organ harvesting but nobody gets offended like this. Now they get a sponsor and it’s a problem.
2020-07-30 16:52
so league being owned by Tencent and basically China, that is as bad as Saudi Arabia, doesn't bother them? fucking hypocrites
2020-07-30 14:51
mens as much as I kinda agree with you they can somehow cancel the sponsorship and they did btw but they can't do anything about china but it would be nice if someone mentioned that once
2020-07-30 16:54
no one who works for riot is going to mention China in a bad way cuz if they did, they would lose their job
2020-07-30 19:10
they could make subtle jabs at them
2020-07-30 19:20
Answer is clear they got so much money and corona put lot pressure on orgs and tournaments I dont really follow LEC so I dont usually know how its run but when a big af multimilliondollar contract gets thrown you might be inclined to accept, blast doesnt surprise me and probably aint gonna withdraw they already held tournaments there and seems shady to me so fits well
2020-07-30 14:55
Funny how this topic has 150+ replies, but where is the thread blowing up about Blast not just being sponsored but integrating with Neom? #FUCK DISGUSTING BLAST and also Blast Talent is completely silent. Hope you sleep well knowing you support the killing of indigenous people. fucking losers.
