Richard Lewis WAS a top-tier journalist. His professional career, where he makes his money, is no longer journalism; it is being social media personality. Calling him a top journalist is like calling Wolf Blitzer a top journalist or Shroud a top Counter-Strike player. He used to be, but it's not what he does anymore, and treating him like he is still a top-tier journalist when the vast majority of his work is punditry and entertainment makes no sense. Similarly, when he was a serious professional journalist who was constantly researching and analyzing the scene, it made sense to listen to his opinions and take them seriously. Now that he is a professional social media user who makes his money by entertaining his followers, it doesn't make any more sense to listen to him for anything other than entertainment than it would another Twitch streamer or youtuber who is in the same profession. TL;DR: Richard Lewis was a good journalist, but he is no longer a professional journalist. To his fans: stop treating him like he is; to his haters: stop expecting him to be. He's just another clout-chasing social media bottom-feeder who comments on things more interesting people have done and regurgitates them to the people who like that sort of thing.

Those are all fair and valuable in their own right, but irrelevant to my point. His primary income comes from elsewhere, which means journalism isn't his profession. It is common in many fields for professionals to publish articles and reports a few times a year, but doing so does not make them journalists. This is a critical distinction because if you obtain income from elsewhere, you are naturally and understandably incentivized to have your writings be ancillary to that income. This is why, to be a professional journalist, you cannot have a financial interest in your subject matter, and consequently why Richard Lewis cannot and should not be considered one any longer. I don't disparage the quality of his work or his historical impact on the scene, just the fact that he should still be considered a journalist and thus be granted the assumptions that title conveys in terms of his motivations. As a sidenote, as I mentioned in my first post, people this title of journalist to both attack and defend him, and my point is that both are stupid. There are those who defend his twitter antics by calling him a journalist, while others use that same expectation to try and hold him to some higher standard, whereas in reality, neither are relevant points. He is a now a professional social media user, and as such is totally free to use his twitter to further that career, and he does. Furthermore, the antics where he does so should not be treated as the intellectual analysis of a journalist, nor should they be treated as violations of the journalistic code of ethics, because he simply isn't one.

I mean yeah, triumph might be shit compared to a top 15 cs team in the world but, we are talking about a team that was made by arguably 3 rejected players 1 vac ban player and hen1 + valorant coach. They might not be the top tier cs but they have some credit by beating one experienced na team, they can celebrate and feel they are closer to reach that top, i mean, thats actually how you do it, you beat the better teams in the region and get to the top. but in the end its just a ball busting joke

2021-05-15 07:33
But they've already played against t1 EU teams. It's not like this lineup was just cobbled together, they've existed for a while now and showed a fairly impressive level at the events they've played. Beating a team that should be far below their level is nothing to celebrate imo, it's just the expected result.

They played like 2 or 3 events and got destroyed on all of them, i think they only managed to win against furia and a dying faze, and they took nuke from astralis, and that was like 4 - 6 months ago, triumph has been playing consistently as a team and that is priceless, i know its not a big dub but they can celebrate that they team is at least working, i mean, im not a o plano fan but why they shouldnt celebrate any way?
2021-05-15 22:29
1 reply
Idk maybe it's just me, but celebrating wins against teams you should be beating is a sign you've lowered your expectations too much. Also looking at their match history it looks pretty solid honestly. In the last half of they beat Gambit Youngsters (exact lineup as the current #1), took a map off Astralis and took another to OT, beat Furia, took a map off G2 and took another to OT, took a map of BIG when they were looking like a solid top 5, did it again, beat Faze, Beat OG, and took a map off them in another series. That's a pretty impressive resume, especially considering they were a team that was thrown together for Flashpoint.

richard lewis is a huge c*** on twitter but this was probably a joke and he's partially right. while triumph is a respectable team, they are low tier1 NA, and O plano roster should aspire to play much better than they did. However, o plano became likable to begin with because they celebrated every little thing they did like maniacs, so this is not them overexaggerating, but just keeping their spirits high like they always have.

And how was that even a disrespect to Triumph in any way ? So guys do think Triumph is on their level, so that means O Plano is on the same level as NA Premier Teams ......
