True, i guess you're right. I just want NA to stop being a joke most of the time and get a major under their belt.

Esea needs to release their death grip on the scene if that's ever going to happen. Having to pay monthly just for a slim shot at maybe getting noticed definitely limits the competition.

I'm excited for them to be unbanned. I will be disappointed if they break the rules again. I will always be excited for the level of competition to be increased. I love good competition. Swag is good. Really good. I want to see him kill it again.

I am just glad they are still banned from the tournaments that really matter. If valve unbans them I think I will walk away from this game. There just won't be any integrity left.

I mean Valve's response to pros complaining about the jump bug was pretty much that its a skill based jump so they should "Just adapt". So I wouldn't count on them to think bright.

I was reading today how the baseball players that threw the world series we're banned for life. There's certainly a precedence for it anyway.

Yeah I can't even imagine what would happen to me if I sacrificed my professional integrity for money from an outside source. I know for a fact I would lose my license.

A lot of people jump to being high and mighty about it without truly thinking about it. In my opinion, if somebody offered anyone in your position 5 million dollars to fail a student or give them a certain grade, I would be hard pressed to believe everybody would at least seriously consider it. Most people would definitely take the offer. I can't say that I would stand opposed. Is it wrong? Definitely. Does that matter? That depends what your number is to destroy your personal values.

I think those are two different things being talked about. First I don't think everyone is swayed by money. Second whether someone takes the money or not wasn't ever the point. The point is they did take the money. So why should they ever be trusted or treated the same again. I for damn sure would take the money, just not at the risk of a professional career. And I sure wouldn't expect anything less than banishment for it.

I would totally take the money, but I wouldn't go around asking to be a teacher again. I know I burned that bridge.

What is an overwatch pro?

Have iBP members asked for forgiveness or shown penance?

Generally speaking, I tend to agree with Serial.
