sakuur on a team called hrteam
How is this related, it's just a harmless cute name. We stole it from another team that had it a couple seasons back. That comment on the other hand is harmful, although I'm sure certain people see it differently.
det-HRTeam hasn't won a match in invite and the team you guys beat in qualifiers is 2-2 in advanced. When I was on the team we were losing to shining star in scrims. You can say I'm biased because you cut me but at the end of the day the way to make ppl believe you're invite level is to beat a team in a match, and that hasn't happened yet. For what it's worth I think you could beat a team or two, but a lot of other people don't. It's not unreasonable for people to question the skill level of your team, and I believed that when I was playing with you guys as well.
I mean let's say we're the bottom invite team, like we lose every match (I'm hopeful that doesn't happen but it totally could). Does that mean we aren't playoffs advanced level? I totally concede that top advanced and bottom invite could be interchangeable, but to me when someone claims that we wouldn't even make playoffs in advanced like that's where I feel like our journey and level isn't being recognized. I'd like to spend this season hopefully proving we deserve the spot in invite, but people bringing up playoffs from last season? I'm over it. I'm by far the worst player on my team and I don't have any insecurities around where I'm at in regards to my skill level, I'm new to soldier and I often joke my soldier is main level, but the reason I'm upset is for my team mates, who'd I'd love to see get more recognition. We have 2 players who literally are coming into invite from div 2, to me that's super exciting, and it sucks to see us getting such a hostile reception.
CAP_CREATUREjust make a private rgl report if you care so much.about transphobia
I think its pretty clear that you are just throwing a public tantrum like a 4 year old because somebody called your team bad.
sin karma's ego is annoying but literally, everyone talks shit about everyone's team in this community including you.
So funny story slicerogue, last season I actually reported a few instances of transphobia. Here's one that sticks with me, I don't have the picture saved on my computer but you can check with makka or my team mates to confirm (I think some other people are aware as well). Elijahh and mxr are both discussing playing our team and are making fun of our map pick of sunshine (since they had beat us previously on that map) and say something along the lines of "what are these t-slurs thinking I guess that's what estrogen does to your brain." I have a literal screenshot, I show it to makka, keep in mind I am an admin at the time, and makka says "Yeah, we don't ban people for shit they say in discord messages." I think you and every other tf2 player knows that rgl doesn't do shit unless it's in game chat and even then it often doesn't result in any action, y'all happily say all your slurs in your dms. The action I want taken isn't even by rgl, it literally happened in a pug group it would require stricter policing of the pugs. So why didn't I just talk to jemond or another admin? Funny story slicerogue, before when kevito frequented those pugs and said a whole bunch of transphobic shit to me, I did report it to jemond and guess what slice, nothing happened. It's not me "throwing a tantrum" it's literally just doing the only thing that actually makes people aware. When there is no accountability, you can't tell someone to just "report it if you care so much, people should be allowed to be transphobic." I am also allowed to oppose it, I shouldn't have to just be okay with it.
Second point, it wasn't really shit talking though was it? It was about the legitimacy of our team making playoffs last season, which I think is very different from shit talk. If you want to talk about shit talk, I might be slightly annoyed but I don't think trash talk is at all a problem, I trash talk tons of people myself like you said :P
Rockzi dont fucking care what you are, but the internet isnt a politically correct place so learn to take a joke
The internet is definitely not a "politically correct place" but we have a small community, with lots of members from different backgrounds. When you make these jokes you exclude these community members and make them feel unwelcome. The onus is not on them to learn to cope and deal with it, although that is often what happens, but for those other community members to regulate discourse for the good of the community. It's not that I can't "take a joke" do you think I start crying uncontrollably every time someone calls me the t slur? No, it's that I'm trying to do my part and what I consider my moral prerogative to make sure transphobes and racists feel unwelcome. Basically bully the shit out of them. We're not going to agree here because my view is that you and all these other morons don't deserve any place in the community and you would probably argue that if I don't like it, I should just leave.
