Going to make this post here for most visibility since this thing is taking a life of it's own and I am tired of reading individual posts where people are just plowing forward with uninformed opinions that are trying to maximize drama.
Myself, Artosis, Day9 and Tasteless did a 2 day event with B-roll being filmed the day before. We casted for a total of 22 hours with day 1 being 13 and day 2 being 9. That is a really really long day with 4 guys constantly talking and mostly getting 5-10 min bathroom / lunch breaks.
Zotac took great care of us but that is a LONG day. What ends up happening is sometimes we run a dry. I make a LOT of jokes and I :"troll" I like to think I am somewhere in the ballpark of 85% funny but that means over the course of that time I am going to be a bit too mean, just dumb or not funny etc. Also, I am not everyone's cup of tea and I've grown to accept that! I love StarCraft and hanging with my buds and being casual and having fun WAS what we were asked to do so I did that. Not telling you you HAVE to enjoy my style or whatever but that is the backdrop.
I think the event went mostly well so I won't go over all of it but lets get to the tail end of day 2.
I was really really tired. Was I mad at all at any point? Nope. I had my Seahawks live feed scrolling on my phone and I had decided I was trolling (Artosis) too much so I backed off and tried to give some more air to the fellas. During Larva's match I was not impressed with the level of trolling he was doing but it only meant I was rooting for Legend to win or at least put up a fight. Don't think I said or did anything that indicated I was "mad" -- anyone reading and saying stuff like "Nah man, look at his face! The way he says words.." it's this kind of shit I have gotten for years since SOTG. People WANT me to be mad at someone or some kind of drama.. it has as of yet never actually happened the way people want (or at all really).
During the interview I asked him silly questions to try and get the discussion away from "man legend is bad and you made fun of him" so I asked him about his thigh cuz I for some reason during the cast estimated it to weigh 17 lbs.. wtf. I also asked him about researching more troll techniques and that was about it. I did it all deadpan because I do that 96% of the time. That.. is literally it. Afterwards we went out and got drinks with the blizz guys and casters. Had some laughs and I went to my hotel room at about 10pm because I was getting picked up for my flight at 5 am and needed to wake up at 4am or so.
Larva told his chat he was upset that I was trolling him and he felt like I was mad. He apparently went out to get drinks with the casters later that night at like midnight and I wasn't there.. so he took offence to that? He also apparently had stuff mistranslated and doesn't understand my humor so he was uncomfortable with the interview.. I really don't give a damn though because it equates to Larva didn't like being trolled in his winners interview after he trolled Legendary. Felt like it was fair game to me O_o
The event was fun but it was small and casual with a lot of joking around. This drama is dumb mostly. It wasn't in the rules that Larva couldn't act that way and he is SO good that he CAN and still win. Had he lost while trolling we'd all have doubled down on making him feel bad about it but instead he backed up his BM and walked the walk. I sense a lot of bored BW fans and some odd racial tension between korea and china (I don't understand it myself obviously) but I didn't want my name to keep popping up without people hearing my side I guess?
At the end of the day if you think I am lying and I was just really mad or something that is on you. I can only tell you what I think and hope for the best.
We plan on doing more events like this so I am going to get really used to hearing how people think I am mad or not funny or need the attention etc.. been happening since SOTG and will continue. I'm still just gonna keep showing up and making the majority of the people happy
