    RE Dunk:

    Nowhere did he say that he lost solely due to hax. Indeed, his opponent was very skilled and deserved to win the game (and will win many more in SPL). There were some tough breaks on both sides (Body Slam paralysis, etc) but I think we can all agree that the game did not contain an inordinate amount of hax on either side. But for fuck's sake, stop taking his damn post out of context. He said that he "could" (NOT would) have won the game but was "too unlucky" to get the breaks he needed. Because the match was relatively close, this is undoubtedly true...it's not like he insulted his opponent or said anything out of line. The reason he said this was simple. Based on the results of some of Dunk's past tournament results, he has a reputation for getting some very bad luck that has cost him games. He is frustrated that he couldn't have fortune at somebody else's expense for once, which in his opinion would make up for some of the bad luck he has had in the past. Should he have made that comment? Arguably not, but butchering one of the best UU players out there for an innocuous post is remarkable.

    Sorry for attempting to bring perspective into this discussion. Carry on with your regularly scheduled lynch mob.

    You wrote too much. The issue is literally "Dunk lost, he mad, hehehe". How does one find that much to say about that?

    Clearly this is a sign that R2 needs to go up pronto.

    The issue is that you all are taking this way too seriously

    On another note: round 2 hype
