Think natu is bad, but the rest is okay. He could be okay but he clearly doesn't put effort in prepping for an event. Thinking HR are bad on overpass for example, just shows he did 0 prep work at all.

horrrible schedule and really boring desk valve really knows how to suck the life out of a pro scene no innovation no prizes no fun
2017-07-04 21:28
No innovation? PGL did plenty. No prizes? $1 million plus sticker money is a lot. No fun? It'll be lit, nothing wrong with the desk or schedule. The tournament is in EU and watched my mainly EU people, and you've had 2 of the last 3 majors... so it's fair. Shush.
2017-07-04 22:44
oh wow stickers for the 16th straight major very exciting stuff
2017-07-04 22:59
I said sticker money. Not sure exactly, but each team probably gets a couple of hundred thousand from the sticker sales.

wtf no thorin. Not an actual major without thorin present.
2017-07-04 21:47
just Poland things... when you mention the job that 98% of all Poles have you get banned from the country and hltv.
2017-07-04 22:10
Wait, thorin is banned from HLTV for calling poles toilet cleaners? My god, the lows this site will sink to rofl.
2017-07-05 13:23
He got fired.

Valve making decisions that only hurt their game in the long run, What's new?
2017-07-12 15:06
actually it's Thooorin who's making bad decisions. You can choose a) act professionally and make great content within production crew b) slam other nationalities and make no money from csgo events. Children time is over. Can you imagine in NL that TV show host before world football cup would call for example Brazilians toilet cleaners, lowlifers etc ? What do you think would happen with this persons career after such a statements ?
