Since you quoted me in here I feel obliged to answer. I didn't take Drackens side because he's CL member or if its ara vs arena community. Most people know I much more often than not take side against Dracken, not in favour of him, and I get along in Arabia communities just as well (I don't ban arabia that frequently either). I only took this side here because it is my personal belief towards Alperen and his actual intentions and purposeful misdirection/flat out lies (anyone at Alperens level knows his tricks on how he plays, how he inflates his elo, how he behaves towards others etc) so I'd very much be appreciated to not be grouped in the Arena vs Arabia discussion.I don't know if the claims about Alperen helping Ertug are true. I would have to assume they are, considering he has not bothered to defend himself against them and is just hoping we will ignore/forget about them.
That being said, I have something to add to this drama, because the claims of DracKeN being racist towards Turkish people are not unfounded. In JonSlow's discord server he went on a rant about Turkish players (something along the lines of "how is it that every Turkish player seems to be toxic or a lamer or a civ picker or a cheater or all of the above, there must be something wrong in their brains"). JonSlow himself had to step in and delete DracKeN's messages because they were racist. JonSlow, however, still allows DracKeN in CL, and claimed "if you were a regular viewer and not DracKeN you would be banned". And while I was discussing DracKeN's messages (where I partially defended him but did also call out the racist sentiment), JonSlow deleted my messages too and told us to stop talking about it. Special treatment.
DracKeN and Alperen having drama between each other reflects just as badly on DracKeN as it does on Alperen. There have been no apologies. As far as I know DracKeN has never apologized for the racist undertones in his remarks towards the Turkish playerbase, and it seems Alperen does not feel bad for being unpleasant in a few cases too (not to mention the accusations of helping Ertug cheat, or cheating himself). Unfortunately all the clowns simply accept DracKeN for who he is, because he is the highest rated CL player. I'm disappointed to see Rmcoo and Darknoob here contributing to the same toxicity against Alperen. This is just tribal arena-clown vs arabia-pleb bullshit. I left the "clown community" for this reason, despite coming to love arena.
Don't take sides here. DracKeN and Alperen are being toxic towards each other because they are both shitty people. The community deserves better.
Regardless yes, Dracken did go over the line, but I also share same frustrations he has
