Truth about Thorin
 | 
Brazil Diabo 
Say whatever you want, but thorin is authentic, he doesn't follow a way of being just because it's "normal" and agree with stuff because it's common sense, he do like some dark humor and if you don't like it you can just leave his twitter " but he's xenophobic, racist and does it for followers " If he wanted free followers and engagement he'd be licking Brazil balls like alot of people do when they see our huge numbers on streams. 10 years ago when gaules was a total nonamer Thorin was giving him some space in his channel for the international community to get to know him: youtube.com/watch?v=CnHFdNEg6ow&t=3s is he really xenophobic? lol you still think he does it for followers? you guys don't like authenticity, you like fake love bought by numbers, and people speaking broken portuguese to farm on brazilians what a silly community...

you can be authentic as much as you want, but people will still judge you if you say dumb shit, especially if it's offensive

Calling out the flaws in a culture is not the same as being xenophobic. Please, link me to some xenophobic stuff he has said/done. Thorin has gotten beef with brazilians, but also with Polish people, danish people and many more. This is his personality as someone who states his mind, not caring how people will perceive it, it's not him being xenophobic. Again, please link me some examples of how horrid of a man he is

And they’ve got that existential hole of being Polish to try and fill with some esports.” “Maybe, it’s like when you have the Olympics somewhere in Africa and they can all pretend they’re part of the developed world for two weeks, and then everyone just leaves and they’re still in the dirt.”

He brought up many talents that we take for granted, he also had impact on how TOs operate and also his esports content helped foster the community and satisfy the needs of that niche.

You are comparing different things. Mainstream sports have influx of capital that is in hundreds of billions, meanwhile ESL which is almost the entire scene has the market cap of 12.5B and that is after Saudi acquisition, so should be worth even less. Casters are underpaid for their gigs, or even if paid properly, it is still a gig so not a stable source of revenue. Even then I don't think the CS talent pool is lackluster compared to any mainstream sport, it is just the scale is nowhere near being close. Esports is still developing and one day there is a chance it will overtake football, hockey or basketball, but that's probably in the far future

Rather the problem with sucking off the Brazilian fans is that it's become the norm. "Black clothing doesn't stand out in a crowd of black clothes". Try something else instead if you want to become notable. Thorin has instead built up a Toxic fanbase that interested in drama and shittalking other players because for most community figures that's a big no go. Again his attitude stands out amongst a crowd of "Constructive criticism"

yes you can put out big 'controversial' statements and farm the whole CS community, not just BR...he was even trending on twitter, his youtube channel got many views and comments or the easier farm is just sucking up to brazil community, not as fun though. i've brought it up here: hltv.org/forums/threads/2627385/twerking..

True Brazil has one of the largest communities in CSGO scene, if not the largest, so more people are gonna get baited with a "brazilian sensitive" subject. That generates engagement in social media, regardless if it's only hating. His youtube channel doesn't get that many views, he probably earns less than $300 per month with adsense. His problem is his personality and that's why he struggles to get jobs. Even more after he went all in Flashpoint and started shitting on their competition.

he doesn't struggle to get jobs to be fair - he refuses to work for ESL, he did work for BLAST until they threatened him to stop tweeting about Device (he said no and quit) and he worked last major, was offered this major again but turned it down due to how shit PGL were. the fact he isn't reliant upon working CS events for money is what allows him to talk freely

thorin works blast events he gets into twitter drama with device (danish company) he no longer works for blast you think they fired him instantly over the tweets? or told him to stop and he refused blast and ESL people are all on twitter, they can easily call him a liar but they don't and he continues to shit on them...as you can see from this latest twitter drama, people are quick to try dunk on him so why wouldn't they?

I believe Blast simply fired him after all the tweets. Even Astralis could've aplied some pressure for that to happen. I don't think thorin had a say on that. I think we'll never really know what happened behind doors, TOs are not gonna come to twitter to clarify that. As for ESL, he cut ties because ESL changed the format of the league, regarding quantity of teams or something like that. He brought it publicaly to shame ESL and make teams sign for Flashpoint instead. He already had a good stake in B-Site that time. My point is that, as he was so involved with Flashpoint, don't know if ESL was gonna call him for gigs anyways..

Faceit was really the only TO that pulled REALLY petty shit like that, and we see where that got them. wont comment on blast but the issue he had with ESL was them just killing off an entire league that teams paid money to invest and buy into, without giving them anything in return.

Before you say any shit, he never was a explicit racist tho. In many occasions he was a cloaked sly racist sob, but he wouldn't dare to be explicit cause he knows the consequences. The entire community knows his personality. If you think I'm wrong, just ask any player, any caster, any csgo professional and you'll get the same answer.

2022-05-17 10:07
Biggest problem is that the guy triggers so much people. Even simple called him a "random fuck", so why not let him die? You don't go searching for every nonsense of twitter to reply back, let the random fuck tweets whatever he wants. Bad publicity still free publicity. Let him die, don't discuss him, don't write his name, don't visit his profile (actually i blocked the random fuck). Let the scumbag truly die out of engagement.

Thorin back then was not the same Thorin now. He used to have a good based opinion with some salty way of saying it, but nowadays he is just baiter without actual content and trying to capitalize on people reactions to his absurd comments. This makes him irrelevant to the actual conversation. No hate from me, business is business, but I don't buy this "he is alternative that others try to shut down" BS, since I've witnessed the change with my own eyes.

Criticism is great, it keeps a check on people. But there is a way to put it out. You can't just blatantly disrespect anyone just because they may or may not be doing good right now.

Doesn't he have autism(illness, not joke) ?

He is a cunt or has autism. Personally I think both.

Racists are such nice guys (mostly). Seriously. They value family and their people so much. Using racist as some kind of slur is fucked. If none of your ancestors was racist, you probably wouldn't be here today

The issue is with thorin is that stupid people Read his tweets and attack him and then he attacks them back. After 10 years of that he Just doesn't give a shit anymore and it clearly shows.

I dont have a problem with Thorin, it's refreshing to have people who say what they think without sugarcoating. If I had a problem with him, I would just stop reading his takes. It's really simple but people are stupid

The thing about Thorin is that he is an attention seeker. He is the troubled child in your class that just does not know when to shut the fuck up. There is a difference between being an brutally honest journalist and a straight out annoying one who feeds on attention.

I disagree with him on his FalleN point I also disagree with people saying that he's irrelevant or doesn't have a real job I like his shows and points he sometimes makes but he knew what he was signing up for when he wrote that tweet, or any tweet targeting the BR community I hate the fact he always focuses on the negatives of everything and is a pessimistic asshole towards everyone everyone here has definitely met a person that can convey criticism nicely, he does it the opposite way, is as rude as possible although never wrong he also uses the fact he's "older and experienced" to his advantage by, for example, holding NiKo's tongue for what he did and said when he was not even 20 years old and can't move on from it he's severely mentally ill but he's good at his job minus twitter
