SPL XII - Commencement Thread

Happy Valentine’s Day, I take this opportunity to say fuck off lopunny kicks fuck off amaranth, thanks again for throwing me to the slaughter, sweet managers
No, fuck you for being a team cancer. You signed up and put in bare minimum effort and harrassed us for 5 weeks begging us to ship you to the Wolfpack. We had no obligation to try, because when you sign up to SPL you sign up for ANY team to pick you up, but we were nice, so we did try. We tried coming up with simple trades, then we tried thinking of options that involved a third team, and nothing worked out. Tony himself told you that nothing worked out. Yet you insisted in your antics and insisted in only doing the bare minimum for the team, and you seriously expected us to play nice?

Fuck off. You, and everyone else who signs up but then refuses to actually try. You don't deserve anything from this tournament, other than maybe a tourban. I wasn't even going to go public with this backstory because it's a little sad really, but the moment you speak up I fire back.

To everyone screeching about the Ruiners, they just happened to have a player we were interested in of similar value to Santu. Let's not act like we've not just traded away a player that costed 16k in the auction and is 2-3 for a player that costed 10k and is 2-2. We were aware the Ruiners situation was quite tricky but we kept the trade completely reasonable. If anything, we shipped off an utter loser to a team that is already out of contention instead of weakening our actual competition.

You're on the wrong side, stop acting you and your buddy behaved like bastards, nice way to condemn an Italian friend. And why the fuck are you saying I didn't put any effort, are you tard or what, I always had supported my teammates always gas them offer tests etc, and in addition I had to built for myself because none helped me on building, so which kind of effort do you wanted? I admit that I wanted to go on wolfpack, but that never led me to cancer, I've always been available and I've always played my best. Stop sticking this thing to what you did you are such a bastard, just stay mute and shut up the fuck, peace. Only cowards like you could tell me about this trade after playing my game yesterday, who knows what would have happened if I had won unfortunately we will never know

The result of the game did not matter one bit. We traded you because you acted like a prick, no more no less
Spin all this as you want, I never act out in the open, I always spoke about the trade with punny but in case the trade would not have been possible after week 5,I would have quietly continued to play for scooters. And what about you? Do you have done this out in the open? You and your friend are RATS, NON VOGLIO SNITCH NEL....

I COULD BE BANNED!

btw the worst manager prize goes to Tricking. in fact he deliberately pmed me that he would buy me in the midseason, but 30 minutes before the end of the auction he forced me to play a bo5 against corckscrew. I didn't accept [I dont have to demonstrate anything (especially to Tricking) and I won't play against a friend just for Tricking's joy] and he started insulting me.
he's a sadistic piece of shit and he doesn't have any sportsmanship, in fact he was already tourbanned. imho he needs another ban because his unsportmanship is destroying this beautiful competition and I'm not the first person he tricked into believing getting into spl, but I'm the first who want to speak publicly against this tyrant, one of the worst italian person since mussolini. I hope the tds will investigate on this and proceed to ban him for at least an year.
 
nice way to condemn an Italian friend.
Wow bro don't play the emotional card. It was you who was the renegade. You being his fellow countrymen should have stayed loyal to him. Doesn't matter if you were cancer or not but even posing a desire to play for another team is so bs. I think you got what you deserved, you have set a good example for others to not unnecessarily disturb managers to trade. Kudos to Amaranth

Please Santu don't interpret Ninja's answer as an assault. He's just defending his position, which is really understandable considering that he doesn't know you as well as me.
And don't blame Punny as well, who just asked me a honest advice about what to do in a difficult situation. We are best friends and I think sometimes he cares too much about my opinion, even when it's a stupid one.
Also, no one of our amazing mates knew about the trade.
If you're looking for someone to blame it's me. I've been discussing about your trade with Punny multiple times and convincing him that this was a cool idea, and I've never thought to talk with you before. This was a big disrespect by me and an infamous play to a friend I've known for years.
I was arrogant, believing that I could establish your will without talking to you in the first place. I only realized what I really did after things were done.
I really believe that my Scooters are going to win this tournament, and I wish them the best luck in the following weeks.
But now I'm here because I feel really bad for what happened, and I want to fix things.


For these reasons, and many more, I beg HANTSUKI, Prinz, Punny and Amaranth to propose and accept the following trade:

SCOOTERS: +Santu, -Niko
RUINERS: +Niko, -Santu

I understand managers can be stuck with underperforming players and it's bad, but the way I see it, trades exist for situations where it'd benefit both parties. If there's no consent, it already indicates that the trade is skewed or flawed in a way. I'm sure most trades will still have consent, because why wouldn't you want to play for another team if your relationship with your current team isn't the best and it wants to give you away? Unless they are aware their relashionship with the other team will be even worse, in wich case it shouldn't be happening anyway. I think it's important to protect players from sent-to-brazil situations.

Please prove me wrong about sports if I am wrong, because I thought that surely all parties sign contracts since there's money involved. And that they normally do sign it, for the reason above (or, of course, for the money).
I don't disagree with you, Rewer, but I think it should be noted: when you sign up for SPL, you're agreeing to play to the best of your ability for whichever team has you, full stop.

It sucks when managers make a decision without the input of the players. I've been in that scenario as a player (with a positive record no less) and it's awful -- it feels shitty, you're disappointed in whatever led to the situation, and it takes a while to get used to the new team. It hurts even more when you're shifted from a team you perceive as a contender to a team that likely won't be. But you suck it up and play, because that's what you agreed to when you originally signed up.

I've also been in a similar situation as a manager, and it's shitty from that side too -- if you have player(s) who've made it clear that they'll only put in their best efforts playing for a specific team, then (especially if they've been communicating with the teams they'd prefer to play for) you'll get lowballed every time you try and trade them away. It's a catch-22: you have someone on your team who doesn't want to be there, but you can't realistically trade them away to wherever they want to go, since recipient team's managers know you're in a bind.

I would get all the italians, right there in the group, put a pile of roses on them, and kiss them all on the lips, bunch of beautiful Italian people.
