Context: twitter.com/RLewisReports/status/1557759.. Reply by Striker/HLTV 'Journalists' twitter.com/StrikerHLTVorg/status/155776.. Maybe Striker try and see the point of the report of dexerto? We can beat around the bush all day around by arguing on the semantics but please don't tell me that you are THAT dumb to not see what exactly the report is pointing to? Thanks!

That wasn't an ego fight at all. Some 'journalist' tried to discredit a report by an authentic, real news outlet and RL called out that 'jounalist' for his behavior. Plain and simple enough the way I see it.

What is the report pointing to
2022-08-11 22:20
6 replies
The report confirmed that essentially that Hunden was seen working inside Astralis's office/hq and been working with players also after being banned by ESIC for cheating etc. Astralis said that Hunden is a 'third-party' contractor and working with players to develop content/practice in Aim Lab with the players as certain 'characters'. Essentially, the report was pointing out that what if (given Astralis's history, dealings and the shady shit they have pulled out over the years) Hunden is like a coach (like behind-the scenes similar to analyst type of guy) for Astralis or what prevents him from doing so when it's clear that both the Astralis org and Hunden would like to work with one another...

And what's the problem with Striker's reply?
2022-08-11 22:42
4 replies
Firstly, Striker is not in a position to report/comment on matters like this because he works for HLTV (owned by Astralis) since there's an obvious conflict of interest as you can see. Secondly, he doesn't even try to address the actual elephant in the room on whether it's ethically 'correct' by Astralis to be working with Hunden after what he did especially given Astralis's history of shady shit in esports in general. TLDR: Trying to point out potential loopholes in an article which directly addresses/raises concerns over your parent company's credibilty and ethics when you yourself are owned by that company as a 'journalist' for Christ's sake isn't a good look in my opinion.

2022-08-12 00:36
The issue is that Striker, CarbonDogma, and Nomad project a paragraph into the article that isn't there, suggesting this is violating his ESIC ban. They also, for an unknown reason, think Richard Lewis suggests HUNDEN was with the team during ESIC-approved events! So they "attack" him because they think he says HUNDEN and Astralis are violating the ESIC ban, instead of just being the 2nd shadiest org in CSGO history!

Well semantics were not even wrong for RLewis's case. He said that Hunden is doing things that if he were to in an official capacity would be deemed illegal by ESIC. Nobody reread the article not even striker either because these people are addicted to sensationalizing things or because they were angered/ upset about it.

Maybe I'm wrong, but the ban is for competition, isn't? I mean, he can't be on the stage with players, but he can be analyst or whatever, at least is what happened during the coach bug.

2022-08-11 22:37
he asked him to stop tagging him and replying so it shows up in notis and Striker continued to do it - so either mute or block! Since Striker hasn't done anything since he switched position in HLTV it makes sense for a block!

"Since Striker hasn't done anything..." Maybe see whatever he's doing is fine with you or not...I can see RL POV. But blocking is also his choice.
2022-08-11 23:00
I mean this is the difference between legal and moral. Sure it's legal for them to have a convicted cheat that tried to destroy the careers of others and paint himself as the victim, but morally it's terrible and it really diminishes the org but then again Astralis has always been fine with being a dogshit org it just make sense that the players get fully onboard with that frame of mind.
2022-08-11 22:38
1 reply
Yeah, when you have a dodgy history with Astralis as an org, I can build up a very good legal case summarising all your motifs for hiring Hunden and having an incentive to benefit both parties (Astralis and Hunden in this case) in an official capacity but not 'on paper'.
2022-08-11 22:51
what is it pointing to? the ban itself was completely retarded to begin with, and he can do with astralis whatever he wants as long as he's not doing anything in an event that he's banned from.
2022-08-11 22:43
2 replies
Yeah, because Astralis is sooo dumb to publish that we have been working with Hunden in an official capacity to help coach our CSGO players when he was literally banned for cheating for our rival (and only big) organisation in Denmark with the ban still in effect..... Maybe have an IQ higher than your room temperature? (in degree celsius by the way)

Also striker is right here, technically there’s nothing wrong about it, technically he can work with Astralis outside the events where he’s banned. And integrity? I honestly don’t care about that whatsoever, I don’t give a duck about something like reputation of the game, it’s a competition, only thing that matters in a competition is if you win or loose. Edit: ofc I care about values like fair play and moral standards, but this is literally only a computer game, I don’t care about its reputation, it’s a game, and as far as you’re not cheating I don’t care about GAME’S integrity, it’s literally only a PC game.

twitter is different from hltv. Hltv can not report any information that is unreliable or has not reached any authoritative conclusion. Let Striker say whatever he has to say from his twitter, but HLTV probably will not tolerate anything that is based on speculation. Maybe ESIC will pursue this further or maybe Heroic will go with the suit. But until then HLTV got nothing to do with this.

first stop calling random people on internet moron. You are making rest of the Canadians feel ashamed. Second can you send me some resources to prove that Hltv is owned by Astralis? Finally the roster changes are speculations that dont have much of a legal implication. Roster changes are not a source of grief for most people/orgs. Unless a player goes out of his way to disclose his contract changes then it is that player that might be sued due to NDA. So first learn to stop raging at others for proving your point. Secondly provide some references to support your 'Astralis owns HLTV' claim.

I don't get why he is being so defensive, striker just asking a simple question. He could be a gentleman and just reply "Well, it is not violating the esic ban, but ethically wrong if astralis working with hunden. It is in the last paragraph if you read the report". BOOM. DONE. NO DRAMA. Instead he think that no one can't question his report. Even with the simplest question. And also it seem the reports has been edited/updated.
