ShounicPavane aka crp / creep
God fucking damn it no. Is Pavane actually Creep? This cuts so deep.
Around November in 2017, Tairong vented on Twitter about Valve's treatment of competitive TF2 leading to the transition into Korean competitive OW. Tairong mentions he stressed to Fl0w3R and Pine, who were reluctant at the time to switch to OW, "this is our future". He also mentions Pavane, a player who wanted to revive the Korean TF2 scene, that he shouldn't do it either, but Pavane wanted to keep going - only to eventually be burnt out.
At my first LAN which was i55 around 2015, while I was looking through photos or something, Mana came up to me with a dude by his side, and he was like "yo, this is Creep! He plays in AsiaFortress!". I was surprised this dude had flown all the way to i55. I never forgot that moment and will never forget that moment Creep, with stars of hope in his eyes, this determined Korean player who was one of the top in his respective scene, telling me: "one day, I want to bring an Asian team to a future iSeries!".
It was just never going to happen in their favour, even if they had chosen to go.
TairongIf you know, you'll feel my anger.
I am happy seeing Bren and Sideshow sitting on the analyst desk. I am happy watching faces from all over the world - Muma, cw, Seagull, Zebbo, Zappis, Haffi, all of these players from back in the day - in Contenders or what's now a sold-out arena, viewed by 250-300K people rather than the initial predicted 30-50K on the internet. I will be happy for these people who have found what they wanted, even if it's not here. I'm so sorry you couldn't find what you wanted here. I understand.
