same way anonymo did nothing wrong because they said that, a game of he said she said bullshit, when the real and only entity to blame is flashpoint, oh well, cant fix stupid

The difference is Anonymo is the one being fucked over if the game ends up being replayed. NIP should have been given the chance to postpone the match in the 1st place since it wasn't their fault as later revealed. However I don't agree with the decision. The game should not be replayed, or at least it should be a Bo3 with Anonymo having a 1-0 lead (Mirage) since in the 3rd Map NIP admitted the problems had already been dealt with and they didnt suffer package losses. That map was fair game. But again, even though NIP is the victim here, I think the game should not be replayed.

I believe you have your reasons to dislike him, but that your bias towards NiP also factors in to your reasoning Imo RL is not perfect, but I'd trust him over anybody on HLTV/NiP/Anonymo orgs.

I've followed Richard since 2015, I only started caring about this itteration of NiP when dev1ce joined, and I was not a fan of Astralis or him until he moved, I'd be more likely to be biased towards Richard, and this is probably the 3rd time I've ever disagreed with him on something in all that time, I'm just not a fan of this apparent mind reading ability he has, makes it hard to be a fan at all
2021-05-17 21:14
i don't care about nip and i also think rlewis is a moron and always has been. trying to polarize with fake allegations, trash talking players just to get attention. and that's all he's after: attention. better don't trust this guy.. anyone but him (or thorin)
2021-05-17 22:05
Why would you trust him? His whole existence is based on stirring up controversy. The fact of the case are laid out very clearly.

But yeah, next level logic because I'd rather wait for conclusions and don't understand why NiP and the players are under attack when 100% of the blame should be put on Flashpoint, both teams are victims of poor management

You're saying that people shouldn't trust the things RL reports because he's biased. How is that not the same as saying he lies A journalists career is built on their credibility. Why would Richard Lewis throw away 20 years worth of built up reputation as a trustworthy journalist just to lie about some very minor detail in a drama that nobody will remember in a few months?

No, I'm not saying you shouldn't trust the things he reports, I'm saying unless he is presenting what he is saying with hard proof and not just a feeling or oh i can read their minds, assuming the worst of people, its perfectly fine to be skeptical of what he has to say when he has shown to be biased from the start, that's all, i dont think its anything unreasonable to ask. you would be a fool to think richard isnt a credible journalist, but that doesnt mean i will just blindly believe anything he will say, i can enjoy his content and respect his journalism without saying hes a lying hack who should never be trusted, its just his words clash with the things i have seen, so obviously im going to not just blindly believe everything until i know the full story, i still think all blame should be put at flashpoint and its a crying shame the communitys crosshairs are still pointed at NiP

In the video Richard makes a clear distinction between the things he knows for a fact and the things he's just speculating on. I'm paraphrasing here but 'NiP had packet loss issues throughout the series' was something he said for a fact, while 'in my opinion NiP might have been exaggerating the severity of the issue' was just his opinion. I just don't really see any reason to doubt the things he presents as facts in the video

You can be biased without lying... Also this guy started a fight at Dreamhack with a dota player and LIED about how the event went down to make himself look better, so yeah, if he's willing to risk his career over twitter drama, he's more than willing to lie in this instance. If he gets found out, his "source" (his ass) gave him "bad info". Sorry for not blindly believing the guy with a history of lying. He's seen the logs though.

Not a reliable source. The strangling part is pretty blatantly a lie, you don't walk away with a slight red mark if a grown man starts to strangle you. Dreamhack had an incentive to lie about the situation after RL refused to sign an NDA with them Also, Richard said: "Backstage Loda's girlfriend had come over first and was berating me and I told her in blunt terms to go away and that if her boyfriend approached me I'd tell him the same. I then informed DreamHack about what was happening on Twitter and was talking about the veiled threats of ‘I'll come and see you’ or whatever. He walked over in the middle of that conversation shouting ‘what joke did you make about my girlfriend’ and came and stood as close to me as possible. No one intervened. He moved his head towards me until it was touching my face, so I grabbed him" That does not contradict DH's statement about Richard initiating physical contact

"a person who can’t trust the most good faith" - WTF do you mean good faith?? The guy already showed he has clear bias in this scenario before any statements were even made, he already embarrassed himself when logs were provided to him and he had to quickly scurry to change what he was saying. " we people yet has no problem believing other nefarious sources. Cool, be that way" Like who? Please give me examples, because me not wanting to blindly believe 1 person and rather wait for the full picture is so unreasonable. I never even said I believe other nefarious sources, although I'd rather believe the words of Anonymo, Flashpoint and NiP, as well as the adknowledgement of valve over Richard's biased opinions, where he can seemingly warg into peoples minds and read all their intentions.

Also, his interpretation of device tweeting that they are playing on 30-40% loss as that they are constantly having 30-40% loss is a bit strange, I personally wouldn't interpret that way. To me it seems like Lewis overreached with his tweets and now wants to justify his overreaction by twisting what NiP said

That's not true though. He isn't claiming that he knows all the details and when he gave his opinion on the lag spikes he prefaced that by saying it's just his personal opinion based on NiP's performance. After that he even said that it's totally possible NiP was experiencing even worse problems Device himself admitted that he didn't know there was a big difference between 30-40% loss and 30-40% loss spikes. I think it's pretty reasonable that anyone who has ever played with >5% constant loss would instantly recognise device's initial tweet was wrong
2021-05-17 21:36
How is that relevant? Any spikes at all is reason enough.

In all honesty I enjoyed watching the video but a lot of it is the traditional "objective opinions", taking an awful lot of creative liberty with his version of the events. NiP handled the situation poorly but Flashpoint are to blame. Take away what you like from this video, all opinions should be respected.
