Since I've had quite a few people asking me for my opinion on the situation in private messages, as well as a number of adds in steam, I suppose I should make myself clear in order to prevent misinterpritation or distortion of my stance.
Obviously I don't agree with and don't endorse pred's behaviour and his words can't be justified or excused, that's essentially asking to get banned.
Degu on the other hand is not as obvious a case. It's understandable orgs and crews and whatnot would want to distance themselves from him in light of these events, which they did. I do not agree with the other measures taken however, namely his ban, as degu didn't directly harrass anyone and has contributed to the scene in the past, and prize money cut (it's been already stated but pred was not our main player, he was moved to sub shortly prior to the season), though I see where etf2l is coming from here.
