PGL should have just kept it the way it was instead of just folding to the SJWs who were throwing a fit. Seems like the original tweet that the NIP guy made got more backlash than PGL.

I don't disagree Freya is good. She is, but she was literally only hired because SJWs complained about the lack of gender and diversity. Like I said, the original tweets that were made from the NIP owner, pansy, and all those bozos got more backlash than the lineup announcement. But PGL folded.

You're right but I think there are no bad sides of this action for both PGL and community - NiP guys and Pansy are satisfied - Community like Freya and even if they hired her only because of her sex - we will never know but noone will complain about her because she 100% deserved the spot - Freya herself is glad to be at the major

you are 100% right. And more females will probably watch too. Its just no downside to this. These people legit getting triggerd just because a female was hired at the exspense of noone, so sad lol.

“People are getting triggered because a female was hired.” Yet the only reason why she was hired is because people threw a fit because no women was hired to begin with. Ironic isn’t it. People aren’t mad she got hired, it’s just the way she got hired. We know it’s for “diversity”

Dude I love Freya as a host and Im genuinely glad shes at the event but the problem is the community wanted worse talents to be hired purely to fit the quota of diversity. I dont care if the cast are male female ect I want the best talent and if PGL didnt think there was women who could hold the best talent title when they shouldnt be hired. Like I said I think Freya and Frankie are great but it wasnt me hiring for the event but just annoying how people care more about diversity than quality when its the first major in 2 years.

Thats not even true. She was hired to be on stage host. They just changed it so the talent will be in Sweden. Prior to this they did not need a on-stage host since the talent was not planned to be where the stage was. So when they change that they need a onstage host. Why make it about gender?

Don't bother trying to argue/have a convo with an idiot Ollie. This dude is an idiot, you will only lose brain cells. Literally a small minority of people went and threw a fit on twitter so she got hired, she is good at what she does but she was hired off that alone.
2021-10-14 20:19
The press in EU loves to write about stuff like this. Maybe they realised it and hired her so they would not get a negative rep before the event even started? I like how you say that it wont affect viewership etc, but you also say that there are so many sjws and that todays sociity is too fragile. Boicots happends all the time, why are you so sure that this could not happend here and PGL would lose money on not hiring her? You like to frame the facts in a way that benefits you.
2021-10-14 01:59
Maybe they just realised that they should have a women because they want more females to watch too? Just keep up your conspiracy dude. Keep living in your own little bubble and dont ever step out of it to see how it is outside

Use your brain, you know that won’t get more females to watch. Female cs made a meme for themselves and that is why no one cares or watches. It’s just like the NBA and WNBA. I’m not living in a bubble, I’m saying it how it is. You just don’t like to hear it. No one is complaining that she got hired, people are disappointed on the fact why she got hired because a minority amount of people threw a fit because no women were hired. Identify politics just need to be left out.

You clearly have no idea how marketing works. You can find so many studies that divercity in a show/broadcast will appeal to more people. Just becuase it dont makes sense in your head does not mean its not the facts. I did not even think of it when i saw only male talents, i think they are all fine. "You just dont like to hear it" I dont really care, i just find it funny that people accualy get mad about it. But I guess its no point in arguing against someone who thinks they allways have the facts regardless of what basic marketing strats and studys says.
2021-10-14 01:53
If they did it bcz of the backlash for no 'diversity' then it sucks, but if they did it for some other reason then its fine

2021-10-13 23:00
"plenty of female talent out there" there is not much female talent at all.
2021-10-14 00:04
I am sorry Miss P but CSGO doesn't really have that much of a female talent in the spotlight nor are few of them actually good enough yet to be preferred over people who do that job better for the biggest event in 2 years. I mean, Stunna is in my opinion the best desk host in the scene yet he isn't part of the squad. Banks, Pala are better interviewers than Frankie, Pansy hasn't cared about the scene for a long time and Potter went to Valorant who was actually a good analyst though her having a pro background contributed to that. Who else is there?
2021-10-14 01:10
7 replies
Sure, the female scene is nowhere near as developed as the male one, but the PGL talent announcement was a joke. It's surprising how fast people forgot that DDK and Sado were completely absent recently, DDK has been more involved in Valo than Pansy as a matter of fact: she was casting privately earlier this year and she followed the RMRs
2021-10-14 01:15
6 replies
As much as I like DDK, the only reason why I am excited for his return is because he is an actual great caster and he is gonna be there for the main event. But that doesn't take away the fact that by his return or anyone else who hasn't been associated with the scene for some time has taken the opportunity away from guys like Harry and Hugo who stayed and casted alot of tournaments in these tiring times, stayed true to the cause yet miss their chance to go to Sweden which they deserved. It is unfair to them. We all know why Sadokist was out and how hard it is to make a comeback on to the camera in this internet age with your past, and he was slowly getting back into the scene, not like he appeared for the Major out of nowhere. Regarding Pansy, I actually can't even pinpoint the last event she did for CS this year. She has been absent for some time even after her comeback, went to Valorant too. Her coming back would contradict your own opinion on DDK's comeback which I too feel is unfair to the other talent. There simply aren't good enough female talent in the CSGO esports scene, either they are still under developed, have other interests or not part of the scene anymore. The PGL talent announcement is mostly based on the nostalgia and fan favourite talent which would easily hype up the most anticipated tournament of 2 years to even more. And I like that, it's working the way its supposed to!

About Pansy's comeback, I'm not trying to invalidate Sado/DDK's selection, just wanted to point out that the only arguments people have used against her are the 'valorant' and 'she hasn't casted in a while' argument, both of which are actually more applicable to the other 2. That's what I'm seeing a problem with: people trying to say the women aren't eligible for such and such reason, when they're actually in a better position than many of the casters. PGL knew Pansy was contactable, I'll just say that
2021-10-14 01:31
3 replies
Maybe they really could have brought back Pansy, she is an old timer and some people still fancy her. Were alot of appreciation posts around her comeback this year. But people also need to understand that this isn't a gender specific case, Harry, Hugo and Stunna the three guys I already mentioned who were running the shows every other month for past 2 years have also been deprived of their deserving chance to be at the Major because the oldies came back when money talked and when the spotlight mattered the most. The same people who aren't raising voice for these guys will curse them when they go to Valorant because they didn't get the respect and attention they deserve after being part of the scene in its difficult time. The injustice here isn't bass on gender discrimination, it's pretty evident.

I'm not saying Harry, Hugo, and Stunna don't deserve it. I think they're better options than some of the selected talent. My point still stands though. PGL didn't seem to do it based on merit

i dont think there really is a merit to begin with. A TO hires whoever they seem fit regardless of their activeness in the scene or their abilities.

I’m not upset at all. I’m just stating out the obvious that in pansy’s tweet and several other tweets that I saw are all implying that Women should be hired because they are women, not because of their talent. Those are SJW comments and they are also braindead comments. No one should be hired based off their gender, race, ethnicity but that is the direction that society is heading towards nowadays instead of picking who is the best for the job. Identity politics should be left out of sports and definitely should be left out of cs and other games as well. It will be the downfall. I wasn’t referring to the HLTV user as a braindead SJW btw just to clarify. I’m referring to pansy and her tweets. Other tweets like this mobile.twitter.com/DagnyVeinberg/status/.. mobile.twitter.com/ReinessaGaming/status.. Further prove my point I’m trying to make.

There are plenty of market reasonings why they would hire a female talent. Just hire someone because of their gender is understandable if they can achive higher numbers with that. "It will be the downfall". Why do you feel the need to be so dramatic? This wont affect anything in a negative way at all? If im selling a female product, I will use female models because thats what sells my product the best. It might be better men models who can do the job better, but I base my decision on what gives me the best return. So im using female models becuase they are females. Why is that wrong?

I think cancelled is a way too big word for this case even tho I agree cancelling is a major issue nowadays. Looking at the talent list right now we've got pretty much all the best there is, as well as now a very good host. Female or not, she's a really good host and deserves to be there which is the entire point of it ! imo it's a great move. Listening to the community is a very good thing so far for PGL, liek that decision to have the casters at the scene during playoffs which wasn't the original decision, out of convenience most likely.

Everyone is thinking it's because of the backlash, but I don't think it is. Her role is "stage host", original plan was to have casters etc. in romania, where there would be no stage host. Now that the talent is in stockholm they've gotten a stage host because they didn't have one.

this is not because of "twitter council" it's because the plan is the caster and analyst will doing it in Romania, but now since those people will do it in stage, they need stage hosts and the only available is Freya

Pansy is great, and we need petitions and riots on twitter to get her back to CS. She can have volutante casts on spare time and during player brake, but i mean, she even made pubg "esports" sort of half interesting - so PLZ Pansy come back to CS!
2021-10-14 05:09
Pansy 🤢 What great casting, just a bunch of moans and squeaks Bravo
2021-10-14 06:24
good stuff but only hired because of the SJWs that threw a temper tantrum because no women were hired for the Major. Hired for their gender, not who is the best at what they do.

or maybe because they decided to have talent at the major instead of romania, and I'm not sjw and thought she deserved to be at major

I'm not referring to you as a SJW, I'm referring to pansy and all those idiots who went and cried on twitter claiming "damn cs is so far behind, there needs to be more female representation." yet pansy isn't even involved in CS anymore so why is she bitching about it
2021-10-13 22:24
2 replies
Pansy was more recently associated with CS than DDK, and RL had basically retired other than hosting CSS7. You'll also note that Freya and Pansy have far less problematic track records in esports than certain members of this major's talent (Sado is exhibit A). I hate to say it, but your incessant name-calling on this thread belies some serious insecurity. You might want to reflect on why the hiring of one woman makes you so upset.

I'm very confused on where you get that I'm upset? I'm simply just stating the obvious. She was hired because SJW's went and threw a fit on twitter lol complaining no gender and diversity. I'm not name calling, if you are upset about the words SJW or idiots then I feel bad for you. Would hate to be as sensitive as you. I have nothing to be insecure about. Sorry you can't handle the truth.

Should have been hired before half of the original list, some of whom haven't been relevant in years. Freya is one of the most capable hosts in the scene. Imagine thinking Semler was hired because he's a good caster in 2021. Dude has no knowledge of the game anymore. Is confused about what happens on the server all the fucking time. Half the talent was added for nostalgia, not for merit.

2021-10-13 23:38
Like I said, I know she is good. But she was only hired because a minority of individuals went on twitter and complained that PGL lacked the gender and diversity lol. Literally pansy's tweet she made implied they should be hired because they are women, not because they are good lol. Don't know why Pansy made that tweet to begin with when she's not even in CS anymore. It's just the typical SJW bs. Just leave identify politics out of sports and games like CS as well.

You are really wrong, Stunna can adapt and can be serious when needed to. I don't mind RL or Thorin as long as they can put their ego aside but Stunna deserved to be at the most hyped event of the 2 year after doing a show every other month for last 2 years when everybody else ran away cause of Online play. His commitment and dedication should have been appreciated by giving him a ticket to Sweden. It's unfair. He deserved better. Best desk host for all sorts!

I think earlier because of the whole remote talent thing there was no stage host but once they did away with that they had to pick oj Borg or freya so they just went with great to avoid more woke backlash
