comma5Nub_DanishOne of the main reasons I hear from people who've stopped playing a competitive game is because of toxicity and the fact that there is the existence of this community is evidence that the game being shit hasn't turned everyone away.

It's not about having a safe space it's about the league needing to get sponsors, you can't really let your top players harass people and say racial slurs when you're trying to make money.

Every game would ban a person for what bowl did idk why you're saying it's because of sensitivity.
do you think sponsors actually care or do they just want to look good because a very vocal minority (you) gets upset at """toxicitiy""" and still hasnt figured out how the mute function works

if you stop playing a game you enjoy because of mean people online then maybe you shouldnt be using the internet to begin with

idk if you've ever gotten payed to do anything in your life before, but I'll let you know from experience that your boss typically doesn't like when you say racial slurs or harassing people. The same is true for sponsors except even more so because a lot of the time what they're paying you for is mainly your brand/image.

aierabro do you even begin to understand how many slurs were slung at esea lanstagg- Platinum during ESEA LAN yelling across the room the enemy team niggers while a BENQ sponsor and I were sitting right behind him. This was also minutes after I spoke to him about how great the community was and how I was happy to see a live sponsor watching the event.
- People saying I was forced to wear a white shirt during our ESEA LAN photo while the rest of the team wore black shirts because i'm black
- Remembered the time I was staying in Elevate room during a ESEA LAN, Bdonski sent the team a text calling his cab driver a nigger. Everyone in the room thought it was very funny and also tried to keep the text away from me when I asked what it said.

this game would still be dying if everyone was friendly though really

not that it's not a bad thing people slur eachother obviously that's not great but you're a proper coper if you genuinely think tf2 would be a booming e sport+ if it weren't for people are saying the n word

tf2 has been an antiquated mess since about 2012 and new players fully don't want to fuck around with cfg and autoexec bullshit, new players don't care to google that you have to crouch to actually sticky or rocket jump properly, new players simply come into the game with default settings, have to deal with awful slow switching and +100ms projectiles and low fov and god awful fps and simply uninstall because the game feels shit to play, and then they go back to fortnite overwatch and csgo which are essentially plug and play, so even if they aren't technically better games, to the average person the difference is night and day

absolutely it sucks that tf2 isn't a particularly welcoming place but you also have to pretty much think well there's not exactly a huge amount of people TO welcome in the first place

When 20b, mixup, froyo, and ascent(or whatever they went bye) were playing and we still had esea lans tf2 had a high enough viewership to justify sponsorship, I'm necessarily talking salaries of a significant number for players, but at least people would've been able to get travel expenses and eyes on the game could increase. Well people shouted nigger in front of them.

The point is that there are so few people to welcome into the TF2 community and so few people considering sponsoring teams/leagues so it's even more important that you don't turn them away. Also I'm not trying to say TF2 would be a large esport all I'm saying is TF2 should be in a better place than it is, the community has had opportunities from growth and they've largely been squandered.

You also brought up the fact they're a bunch of other options people can choose from if they want to play an esport, all with bigger communities and opportunities to make money. This is exactly my point why would you stay around playing TF2 when the communities toxic and the top players continually engage in behavior that turns sponsors away?

I don’t think any of us can actually definitively know for sure whether bad behavior had any real impact on lack of sponsors, driving pub players away, etc. I’m inclined to think it was a pretty small factor compared to a lot of more important things.

That being said, you shouldn’t need the excuse of big prize pools and sanitized corporate involvement in order to treat people with respect lol. Tagg being driven away from this community isn’t sad because we lost a good player or because it’s an analogy for the thousands of other people like Tagg who could’ve made us a true esport, it’s sad because a human being suffered disproportionate abuse when trying to enjoy his hobby based on things beyond his control and basically no one cared when it mattered

Like Jesus we shouldn’t need self-interested reasons to not be racist, even if it’s not going to backfire on you at all it still isn’t acceptable, this ain’t that complicated

just saying, why does bowl get unbanned from 6s (despite still being banned from hl, that's understandable) when he caused a huge disruption and, to my knowledge, has repeated this behavior... perfection and I get banned for the entire season for having a sub alt rostered... idk

(and yes he just got it reduced not "unbanned")
https://i.gyazo.com/d57b60926eee600625cd87f449429c43.png also did something relating to an alt

edit: also dunker was alting, but worked out a compromise with an admin and was only banned for a week
