and you think that's how slavery works? with contracts and shiii tons of money and playing the the game you love??

The point he's trying to make is that I think Astralis is paying a huge sums of money for Gla1ve to extend his contract. Thus making him a slave to the Astralis Organisation.

sorry but you are also dumb, you don't need to pay a slave that's the whole point of it and you don't need a contract for that

The definition of Slavery is this as well: a person who is excessively dependent upon or controlled by something. I think that's what Thorin was referring to. I think it's pretty foolish of you just to call someone outright dumb because they disagree with you. Check the Oxford Dictionary for the definition of Slavery it's not just one sentence. It's not a one dimensional word.

oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definitio.. Look at the second definition on the page: I've pasted it below for your convenience. a person who is so strongly influenced by something that they cannot live without it, or cannot make their own decisions That person can still be considered as a slave. They are "strongly influenced by" Do you still not get it? That's what Thorin was referring to. And the link you posted seems to be describing yourself. Pretty funny I'd say, since you didn't know that the word "slave" doesn't just have one definition. A person can be a slave to social media, because he's very addicted to it, you could argue that he's agreeing to use social media, but he's still considered as a slave to Social Media.

"They cannot live without it" does not always refer to money. If you say you cannot live without your phone does that mean your phone is producing money for you? Seriously? Do you only think of it as in terms of money?

What Thorin was trying to say is this: "Gla1ve is being dependent on the organisation." Did you not read Richard Lewis's Article regarding how the players were mistreated by the organisation. The fact that they took a 30% pay cut (it was announced by the Astralis Organization), and the fact that two players were able to burn out, and Gla1ve had to get a medical note so that he could take a 3 month break? And the fact that you resort to calling me dumb shows that you can't make coherent arguments. LOL I proved you wrong regarding the definition of slavery and you said that I made up that definition, which shows your lack of fluency in the English language. Maybe you should search it up in Oxford Dictionary before making another foolish statement.

You don't know the definition of slave because you think it just has one definition of it. oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definitio.. Check that link and read the multiple definition of slave or even slavery to see how it can be used in sentences. The fact that you're still trying to argue with me and the fact that you immediately assume that slaves don't get paid means that you don't know the definition of Slavery which is an irony in itself.

there is nuance in the way words are used. I know this may be complicated for you but people can be in what objectively may seem like a good situation from the outside but that person's perspective may not be so positive. Also gla1ve had to get a doctors note for burnout in order for his org to listen to him and give him a break. seems pretty awful to me

yes bro that is the secondary usage, cool, you searched it up in the oxford learner's dictionary(perfect for your level of english). of course that ignores that the entry directly states that "slave" should be followed with "to (noun)" to be correct, but you ignore that but glaive doesn't even meet that... you're just salty that your predetermined conception of astralis treatment towards players is wrong. yeah they took a pay cut, obviously they agreed to that. yes you need a doctors note for medical leave. have you ever had a job??? here is a better example of the secondary usage: "JimC is a slave to thorin's opinions"

Wow, English is definitely not your first language. The fact that you think that "slave" should be followed with "to (noun)". HAHAHAH, where did you learn that? That's the example used in Oxford Dictionary: slave of something We are slaves of the motor car. Don't see a "to" (noun) in there. Improve your English before replying mate LMAO Other players didn't need a medical note to take a break. Pretty peculiar that Astralis had to make Gla1ve do that.

nice oxford leaner's dictionary citation bro... yes, slave of/slave to a noun - this is what people who know something about english call a "preposition." heard about it? no? that's what i thought. in the real oxford English dictionary, which requires a subscription you don't have, it clearly indicates that the metaphorical use requires a preposition and a noun after the word "slave." show me where it is said that glaive is a "slave to/of astralis" oed.com/start?url=%2Fview%2FEntry%2F1814.. here is the link by the way. i'm part of a prestigious university that gives me access for free. can you say the same?

oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definitio.. Maybe you should read the definition of slave before making another statement that would embarrass yourself. The definition as shown in that link is this: a person who is so strongly influenced by something that they cannot live without it, or cannot make their own decisions So..., are you really that one dimensional into thinking that the definition of slave is that he doesn't get paid? A person can be a slave to a company, that does not mean he's not getting paid... A person can be a slave to their phone, in that context that becomes a very different meaning.

I think his being a father soon made him make that decision, and not because he's controlled by Astralis. He can't just sign with a team from outside Denmark now. yes, they probably offered a bigger contract. but that will be good for him, he's not a young guy anymore he will have a family soon and having more money is good because of it. For example, I would like to see gla1ve in G2, but looking at everything, he made a good decision.

I am not against Gla1ve making the decision signing with Astralis, it's his choice. But looking over these replies, they don't even understand that there are multiple definitions of "slave" and "slavery" as shown in Oxford Dictionary, these people don't have English as their first language and are trying to flex their knowledge about them being correct.

He’s exaggerating to get his point across. In this case, it’s that despite how poorly astralis treated its players, gla1ve still resigned with them for the money. The word slavery obviously isn’t used literally.

He didn't even bother to look at the second definition of "slave", it's pretty clear that their first language isn't English so they don't really know that the word can be used in different ways, or if their first Language is indeed English they just suck at writing or speaking.

You dont even know what he is saying.He means that some people(he means gla1ve) became slaves to money as in they do things for money they shouldnt do(or at least things Thorin thinks they shouldnt do) He thinks that Astralis has little chance of being successful again and the players were fed up with the org but they probably offered him more money and he chose that over trying to make another team great again.

Bruh you cant interpret English,you take every word he says literally.Its an analogy,you dont need need to take every word as it is,think a little. What I think he means is that when the scene was small people played because they loved the game and not for money but then some thought that more money would make the game bigger and mean people could put in more time because they could do it full time.But it made people slaves to money because often they choose it over greatness and the love of the game.Which he thinks applies to gla1ve's case

His timings are random as fuck at times, there are a lot of interpetations for this tweet. And even if you take it as granted that it is about Gla1ve, there is still plenty different ways to interpret this. I just dont find it unfair to get upset about, or call Thorin stupid or whatever, because of something that people just assume to be true while there is plenty of room for improvement. And because it's thorin, people of course assume the worst of interpretations.

If Thorin can't see Astralis is in every way the best option for glaive he's obviously braindead LMFAO
