When people will realize that depression (the actual one, not the one most people believe to have) is a bad spot to be in?

I don't particulary like or dislike the guy, and not even trying to analyze him or something, it might just be he's an a-hole, but it looks like a case of actual depression, which has nothing to do with OW or streaming (even if being exposed to loads of people doesn't help).

What pisses me off is the random guys telling him "c'mon bru don't give up, it's going to be great" or on the other side of the spectrum the ones going for "Eh wouldn't expect otherwise from such a troll/whatever".

That's not what you want to hear, ever, and not what you need to hear either, but I get it, nobody forced him to play OW or stream, so it's ultimately "on him".

If he goes on streaming and into OWL, or decides to follow a different path, I hope he finds some balance.

yeah, i really do want to see dafran happy and i hope they do have mental health professionals provided for him in OWL if he does still end up going. i don't think he's a bad guy, just think he overreacts to his emotions at a certain time and ends up regretting it a lot

If a cavemen (ignoring modern diseases and other evolutionary disadvantages) would grow up in todays age he could perform just aswell.
In generel homo sapiens didn't change that much in this small timeframe.

If dafran worked in an office, he would need to take a step back from his workplace and get some help. The same is true of his actual job which is primarily as a streamer and secondarily for now as a member of ATL Reign. That he is so public is a result of his profession.

Saying "he's depressed" is a normal pejorative termused to describe those with clear social interaction and deep seated issues, but by people who know no better. He could suffer from any or multiple mental afflictions, anxieties, social interactive flaws, so many things, few here likely know what that is in truth.

It is unfortunate a talent so great should publicly suffer but there is only one course of action and that is to have one's illness solved. Only then can he reap the rewards of his talents.

I wish him well regardless.
