I want it to be clear that I apologize for every negative consequence my seemingly stupid cast had. I'm not a big streamer, so I'm not used to this big numbers, and can get lost with this things. I am not ashamed or won't apologize for being against this kind of behaviour. But I speak in all honesty when I say that I never intended for it to go this far. Again I'm not responsible for my viewership acts, and this wasn't intended at all. I even said specifically many times the true way should always be peace, and I fully believe in it. Big plus is that I never ever talked that we should use violence or insults to cure this problem.But I am sorry, Black, if some jerk took it so far and justified it by saying I'm against racism.
I was an official Streamer of KoTD 2, paid my fee with the help of donations and casted all games of the first round without any problems. Everything changed when I casted TheViper vs Bl4ck for that round too. I had many many comments on my streams asking why I would cast the games of someone that constantly says Xenophobic and Racist things, like black. I read those comments and said
"Well, he is racist, he does say horrible things constantly and is a bad person. But I think if people donated for me to cast, they should be able to see al games, also seeing theviper is always cool"
Now I wasn't any more desrespectful than that. Because of that, bl4ck filed a complaint. Now I am banned from voobly and I will be banned for more than one month, losing the chance to cast KoTD and most importantly won't be able to play AoC for so long. Also I have to apologize to the player in question (Bl4ck) .
Now this was said by chris@Voobly , which I thought can't be high staffed in voobly, knowing that this decision is ridiculous. However a quick google search and found this topic, and was very sad to see that he is actually the highest rank in this platform.
I heard so many casters saying much more terrible things and nothing ever happened. Also I'm always very respectful towards players and other casters. And this is widely known. I'm even a ECL caster and never had any problem whatsoever.
Now I always was against racist and xenophobic comments, this is not new, and I think everyone who plays in voobly knows that bl4ck makes such comments constantly. So that leads me to believe that there's more to it than this, and that this is just an excuse to stop me from streaming.
However, since it seems I'll never be able to play on voobly again, I wanted everyone to know and at least see what things in voobly really are. Where random bad decisions are made.
Funny, at the end of the same article of a voobly staffer that I found online, the words were: " Voobly staff actively chases away the best people and promotes the worst ones. " . Funnily enough, now Voobly does not only do that with the staff. Voobly does that with players too. I try my best to bring players to voobly, to aoezone and to the game itself --> I'm banned. Bl4ck curses when he loses, push people away, and ruins the community --> He stays and is rewarded.
Btw: I read all the rules he stated there. I didn't break a single one. English is not my mother-tongue and I'm a slow reader. I admit it took hours, but even after all of it, I could see that his entire post is pure BS. Only lies.
Also staying behind Microsoft to state something like that? I don't think Microsoft would ever hide racism or Xenophoby. And even less, punish someone for saying literally : "As you know guys, I always have been against this kind of comments, and that's why I avoid contact with such people"
The video I removed as soon as I saw his post with fear and in hope that everything would be fine. But now that I see how dirty it all is, I will re-upload it to show as evidence as soon as I can recover all parts.
Have a good one,
