YES NO FAGGIT THORIN
2017-06-24 18:12
thorin isnt gay afaik, he has probably banged dozens of korean hookers. i like him, at least he isnt boring. hes eloquent. but it was clear from since the major was announced that he wouldnt be anywhere near the qualifier or the main event. no poland for thorin, he cba to get murdered.

hes toxic and provocating pro players that are in slump thats why they dont invite him anymore LUL
2017-06-24 18:16
toxic? debatable. its just banter, get over it. esports doesnt have to be a safe space. beyond the banter what he does is criticize players that are in a slump. thats his job. u cant fault him for being honest and not sugarcoating things. they do invite him to pretty much every event. cologne didnt work out for him schedule-wise and he doesnt want to go to poland for fear of getting murdered bcs polaks hate him.

Yeah, their statement says that they're banned from attending all valve sponsored events so I guess it covers being an analyst as well.

cant find it anywhere, but at the time i remember people were talking about it, maybe they can go as spectators, but im pretty sure steel wanted to go to cologne 2016 and he couldnt because of the throw, but maybe im wrong

I am always surprised that RedEye gets to host things. He is really bad no matter if it is CSGO or Dota2 or anything else. Is he the owner of something that makes him able to put himself in as host?
