I am writing this post, because I do not longer wish to tolerate the behavior of certain players within our community.I have not been properly around myself in the period between the last LAN and the recent NationsCup. This has been the same period in which discord obtained a lot of activity within our community and became the new standard. The introduction of discord gave rise to many advantages and can be generally considered as a huge success. However, in my eyes, it came with one major downside. That was the behavior of some players.
It saddened me when I made my return to hear stories from others who lost their fun in their game due to the toxic behavior from others. To the bullies themselves; I can only wonder how someone can lose so much track from reality to justify their own toxic behavior and have no longer any empathy towards others.
This post is also supported by the events of last Sunday, where players refused to continue to play the tournament. Players should realize that such behavior is not accepted by any means. To absolutely erase all misbehavior might be an illusion, but I would like to contribute in my own way to a more healthy community.
Going forward, this means that misconduct of any kind during tournaments will lead to exclusion from future events, both online as offline. After careful consultation with Aniky, we have also decided that misbehavior during tournaments will lead to a severe punishment for the gathers self.
I am firm believer of second chances. Anyone who has been excluded from gaming due to his behavior, but is willing to talk about it in an adult way, is free to get in touch with me for a chat to tell his side of the story.
To conclude, one or more players are as of right now excluded from future tournaments.
Respect means valuing others
