anyone w the callous jabba hate can be quiet now. everyone has made mistakes and callous has shown hes dedicated to managing and winning. well deserved congrats to callous and jabba for getting selected
You did it!I for one think the TD's made a great decision, of course Averardo and I, as two people who have ever played a lower tier, are unqualified to captain a team for a tournament with the OU tier in it (ignore the fact that Avedo literally won an all OU team tournament in the past 7 months). Avedo's familiarity with the 4 slots involving SS and SM is clearly less valuable than two people who know how to play ADV (being generous here). And while you may think it makes sense to pick someone to captain the team who has a previous association with the team, given that the community clearly values the dynasty aspect of SPL, the TD team has obviously come to the conclusion that someone who is has a history of cancering on a specific team would have a better legacy for said team than someone who has ass-manned for said team twice. And obviously commitment is important as well, which is why someone who has doxxed and harassed prior teammates to play a game for a team he was managing is the perfect choice to manage a tournament like SPL. I applaud the TD team for their great decision making skills, can't wait for SPL to start!
This is some bullshit. I don't know who exactly made this decision, and I don't mean to direct hate to the TD team, but y'all fucked this one up. I'm pretty sure the raunchiest thing that Lavos says in that interview is that he's got some hard feelings towards certain smogon folks, and while that may not be justified or kind I don't really think that that warrants official punishment towards the person conducting the interview. If you're really upset about that shit you're going to have to kick BKC too for having permabanned users as mods on his Discord server. Don't do that, it's obviously ridiculous. About the other point: Callous's guy cancers, Callous finds a way to contact him, Callous's guy plays. Probably fair to say he went a bit extreme here (many years ago), and again probably a stupid reason for this guy to take official punishment.Eo Ut Mortus said:- For an off-site tournament, hunting down a player's phone number and making a very intrusive phone call to ensure they would play their match
- Conducting a one-hour interview for the explicit purpose of platforming a user permabanned from Smogon for hate speech, who then proceeded to double-down on their positions in said interview
i won't be playing either bro, stand in solidarityNah this manager decision is not okay by me
Callous single-handedly does more for ADV than Smogon ever has.
If this bullshit is pulled on callous I'm not interested in participating in the tournament.
If Callous gets removed from his team I will not be playing.
I suggest fellow ADVers to also not put up with this
