too long to read, so just faq you
Thank you for this amazing insight.
This would have resulted into a brawl in here :D.
Fnatic didnot behave wrong in any manner. Nip fanboys tend to forget behavior of friberg and GTR( they are know to taunt their opponents on lan) while critizing fnatics.
well trashtalk has always been in sport and will always be, no matter what game/sport is being played. E.g EVRA VS SUAREZ/ANTON FERDINAND VS TERRY or so on .. but disagreeing to shake hands is simply stupidest thing you can ever do .
the more topics the bigger the drama, thanks
BUT! I saw the video and really don't get fnatic's celebration. It's seriously unacceptable to celebrate like that. I didn't understand them but that's not the main part of this. Refusing to shake hand is really bad thing in eSport. Really poor acting from fnatic squad, they act like dicks.
"OMG! Literally OMG." and the thread is off to a great start.
So,as you said...have you ever been at lan?
Have you ever heard about respect?Yes of course you can be arrogant or beeing cocky but not with someone who win everything in eSports (f0rest,gtr and xizt).
This kind of things did TaZ in past,but TaZ is a legend,not an ugly kiddo who didn't achieve nothing in eSports(except Moddii).
Well on one hand nip kinda deserved it because they wanted another chance on a stupid rule,and if there are stupid rules some lame people will try use them,on the other hand fnatic players are really young and while they should have shaken their hands and say all those stuff in point blank to nip,i do understand them.People say sportsmanship was bad,but what about fair play?NiP lost fair and square.Arent those the two same exact things?Yes if fnatic took the higher road,they would look classy,but would that stop Nip or any other team to be lame like this?Who knows maybe this response will change that,but i doubt it.Atleast it made gtr sad,which he and his team deserved in this instance.
I have played CS 1.6 on many LANs, some serious tournaments with price money but also many smaller LANs just for fun. I'm no longer an active player but signed up here just for this argument.
I have never witnessed anyone "not" thanking the other team or refusing to shake hands. This is especially true in serious tournaments were I have witnessed teams getting disqualified by trash-talking in chat during the game (Dreamhack many years ago, early in bracket)
I know many other IRL-sports where a player/team could get disqualified or receive a fine for similar unsportsmanlike conduct as this!
