det-holding invite players to higher levels of scrutiny = banning ppl they don't like for petty shit that doesnt deserve a ban

the thing is, I'm not even opposed to holding invite players to higher levels of scrutiny. the problem is, it needs to be a two-way street. if invite players have to adhere to stricter rules, the admins need to actually try to cultivate better relationships with them, and also be more transparent in their decisions.

look at, say, cs:go to see what I mean. on the one hand, top tier pros would definitely get in trouble for things that no random player ever would. at the same time, pro players have direct channels to communicate with valve, their feedback is sought more directly, and if any pro player gets banned you best believe it's instantly going to require a big news post explaining everything, rather than just a random anonymous ban. and that's valve, a giant corporation with a reputation for being absentee/opaque in their decisionmaking. the idea that volunteer mods in a community league with 1/1,000 of the player base would be so secretive and paranoid is just absurd.

They unbanned the MAL players but they are contemplating stricter rules on invite players through use of a player survey. That part of the article is so vague and leaves the question of whether they will police invite players outside of scrims/matches through pugs or comms. Also where are the sponsors they talk about, because all I see is mannco.store sponsoring invite highlander and nothing else.

like 500,000 words and they still haven't even addressed the fact that they banned a black person for saying the n word

again, if they plan on holding invite players to a higher level of scrutiny, then it's on them to do their due diligence in that regard

bearodactylcan we also talk about the fact that RGL bans people without any warning?

if someone's alias having a chinese translation of a producer tag is deemed offensive enough to not be allowed in the league, the proper course of action is to *tell them*, same for the map review shit, giving a warning would have been entirely understandable and this whole situation would have been avoided

I said this about non-ban rgl decisions but it applies here

like clockwork says a bit of context would be nice in such a small community, but even barring that how about at least a lil transparency

unless this is like cheating and you can't reveal why someone was banned unless you teach other people new slurs to use??? that doesn't seem right!

I don't think it's helpful to redirect the conversation about the rule being too harsh, because that's totally irrelevant

even if it's a lifetime ban for a single racial slur once in one's tf2 career it's irrelevant

the point is that black people saying the n word isn't a racial slur lol

PeteTbf like are they supposed to dm the random open player and just be like "yo can you send me a selfie real quick? Just wanna see if you should be banned or not. Don't catfish me!"

sure, but this isn't a random open player, it's an invite player who routinely streams with a facecam, and the fact that people are still defending it by saying MAYBE JUST DONT SAY THAT WORD proves that it's not just because they thought safrix was white, but because they're legitimately just morons

Maybe just don't use that language then, regardless of who is saying it?

You are a fucking idiot dude.

Allow me to try to help. WHY is it seen as racist for white people to say the n word? This is an incredibly basic question, but I have to preface my point with it because it seems to be getting lost in translation. It's racist because it is associated with chattel slavery, when black people were seen as property and not as human beings. It's racist because even after slavery, whites continued to use it as they lynched black people and as they enacted Jim Crow laws to replicate the same racial caste system. It serves as a painful reminder to many people of this legacy of oppression, and also of privilege, because there's no equivalent word that can be used against white people to remind them of a similar dark time in history, because there was no such dark time.

Now, as is plainly obvious to see, a lot of black people have reclaimed the word as, if not exactly a point of pride, a point of defiance. Of course, this topic is debated in the black community all the time, and there are definitely people who think the word should be retired entirely (and maybe even a few outliers who think that the stigma associated with white people saying it should be lifted in order to fully overcome the word's history, but I guarantee you that's not the majority). Still, it represents a tiny but important way in which black people can reference their collective history with a single shorthand. Context is obviously important.

A bunch of white people deciding that they have the authority to declare the word verboten and actually punish black people for using it does not look like being a good ally. It looks like it's borne out of the same impulse to control people of color and tell them what they can and can't do. It's actually at least as racist as saying the word itself.

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

ok after a solid morning thread derail I have taken a nap and I must redeem myself

louster200Have you tried just not saying slurs?

"But it was on a private ser-"

Have you tried just not saying slurs?

"It was a map review not a sc-"

Have you tried just not saying slurs?

ITS NOT A SLUR WHEN THE PERSON SAYING IT IS BLACK

this really isn't difficult, white admins banning black people for saying the n word is actually racist lol

now given RGL's opaqueness, who knows maybe safrix got banned for saying something totally different in some completely different context, but if it's for this thread only then that's not just an overreaction, it's actually like morally unacceptable

I haven't gotten into Kev here because the whole "can hispanic people say the n word" topic is unbelivably fraught and could go on for like 10 years, but suffice it to say it's still a bit different than banning me for saying it
