The funniest thing in this thread is however without any doubts you guys who have "seen the real drayich" its the most amusing part of my 'competive-career' ever. Just because someone is told to be mannered doesnt mean hes gonna take crap from kids who are behaving like crap. Many times ive said no to both waiting for additional players and saying no to remaking games where people left. I will keep doing that forever.
I want professionalism, which means i also want manners, in e-sports. In theory and practice that means i dont call out people in allchat, but i also dont wait for someones mum to decide wether her son is allowed to play or not. The difference is huge.
Whenever people do understand that e-sports is sports with an "e" then there is a possibility to make the gaming grow much more then its already growing. Problem is that the scene consists still of too much younger people who havent understand the point with behaving properly, or following rules - written and unwritten.
Use your energy on changing the overall attitude in gaming community - instead of wasting it here. There will be people thinking we were a mannered a fair team, there will be people thinking the opposite. In the end its about what we can do for this community and i have to say TsoG has done more then everyone so far written in this thread. No offense :-)
Damn. Drayich perfectly executes the legendary well-manned smackdown.
See you in DotA 2, mate. Stay true.
Yep. Players and teams alike should respect the fact that they're guests at every tournament they attend. They aren't "entitled" to participate and could be removed at any time (but obviously this is the least desirable option, both for the teams and admins).
If you're playing for money, treat the tournament with the same respect you'd treat a paying job. You don't show up to work 30 minutes late because you ran out of gas (irresponsible, fill up beforehand) or leave 20 minutes early for a 15 minute commute then complain about traffic making you late, etc.
Professionalism is tough to come by these days in e-sports. I think that's all Drayich wants to preach...respect.
if only my papa had been like drayich, maybe i wouldnt have ended up trolling forums of some crappy game and done something with my life instead.
didn't read the whole thread, but i've spoken to papadrayich few times and he is an awesome guy.
Drayich and tomtom most legendary people to play with. <3 srs game on voip with drayich.
I tip my hat to TSoG!
Drayich, Remember when you used to send me random pictures of your house?
Hope you still got that ugly lamp.
So sad... Was a great team
MoonMeander: Sometimes when I get bored at night I pretend I'm Chtuluphant and charge my girlfriend, pillow, blanket off the bed and yell "MRRHHHHHHHHHH!"
Parakletos: two kinds of people in the world: people who jump on their **** in the shower and dirty liers
Fantasy: You definitely are a GIANT contributer that I am, where I am.
NovyPirat: The only thing riser needs to survive is the island and the others
I hope this doesn't mean we won't see Drayich in the competitive scene in the future, whether it be DotA 2 or HoN.
