Let me tell you a tale of the most ESPORTS OF HATS
Verily it doth sit atop the head of a strange man, yet if it had eyes, what would it see?
It would see the sites of many strange lands, Sweden, France, England, Finland, Italy, Germany, Spain. The inside of convention centres, bars, clubs, universities, exhibition halls and LANs. It would see men dressed as marines, crowds of thousands, community figureheads, the best players in the world and hundreds of matches played out on screen. The rise of legends, the fall of champions.
If it had ears, what would it hear?
It would hear the roar of ESPORTS, screamed from the mouths of thousands of rabid fans, baying for blood, hungry for victory. It would hear the commentary of the world's finest, Tastosis, Day9, Bitterdam, Khaldor, Apollo, Grubby, TLO. It would hear. It would hear tell-tale and all too familiar sounds of the death of worlds, the crash of shells, the roar of a thousand guns.
And after it's many travels across the world it will finally come to rest in the hands of a collector, after being raffled off for charity as one chapter in it's tale ends, another begins.
So dear friends I ask ye this. What is truly more ESPORTS?

Husky Tweated, djwheet tweeted, day9 tweeted TB tweeted and those are just the ones I follow on twitter. Why is only one of these getting shit upon?
EDIT: and I can hardly care who tweeted or not, I'm just pointing out that people here are being very uptight about one set of tweets, and yet have said barely nothing about the others. All or nothing people, to only call out one and not the others is being hypocritical at best. Personally nothing IMO.

simple as that.
Yesterday no one tweeted about it, each one got about 4k votes. Now in the TB vs Artosis plyon is 10k votes, while the rest have about 4k.
TotalBiscuit tweeting about it made it a popularity contest, other then just a fun thing to do.
It was always a popularity contest. The only difference was that before TB, along with Husky and others, tweeted about it, the popularity contest was just limited to the few thousand people who happened to see it on the forums. I see no reason why TL forum members have the sole right to decide which they prefer. It's popularity contest and it has been since the start; deal with it. I'd tell you to quit your whining, but to be quite honest I find your petulance amuses me, so feel free to continue.
