Well shit, LGE did it!
Not sure why you think those aren't related but regardless it's not limited to those kinds of investigations. In most cases where criminal charges could be levied League will suspend their players during the investigation.
If the allegations are serious enough the players may even end up being released.
Cherry picking stats but ignoring how close they came to beating a "top 3" team while having a new MT in the lineup is a bit short sighted.
Their play wasn't perfect, and Seoul did run Xepher/Gambler, but it came down to 1 fight on the last map, and that's a much better result than most would have expected.
From what I heard they speak Chinese but use English when needed. The KR squad is taking Chinese, Mandarin I assume, lessons and the plan is to transition to fully calling in Chinese.
Not sure if they'll stick to it or possibly adopt some type of hybrid system like some of the Western teams that have several Koreans.
Chinese with some English where needed, with the KR squad taking Chinese lessons.
I can update the map rosters just for you <3
Dynasty did just 4-0 SFS though, so unless SEO goes in full throw mode again they should come out with the win.
SEO 3 - 1 DAL
You also fail to realize that a 14 y/o might not always think about the long term consequences, hence why the age of consent applies. I think it's different because the number is so high in Cali (it's 16 across the board for Canada) but below that the law judges you to not have the appropriate knowledge to make an informed and educated decision about sexual activity compared to your partner if they're at an age that is arbitrarily older than you. People develop at different paces and you can't expect all 14 y/o to have the maturity level to fully comprehend the weight of their actions.
You need look no further than some of her responses that people have been circulating to see that she's not the most mature teenager out there.
Dream on the other hand is old enough to have a solid grasp of the consequences of his actions but failed to keep the relationship to acceptable levels in the eyes of the law.
We have to fall back on the law because that's the rule set we have to follow. If your laws are different then it's understandable that you don't understand, but that's entirely irrelevant to this case and it's implications, including her involvement and/or intent in the situation with the exception being that she'd have to be charged with blackmail/extortion. Though at that point I don't know what the legal gymnastics would look like.
His immediate suspension is a normal course of action for leagues when players are under investigation for these types of things. He could be re-instated if they can prove that she lied about her age.
Note that police use this tactic (an actor portraying themselves as a younger individual) to catch individuals that solicit underage boys/girls. It doesn't matter who she actually is, if he knew and believed she was 14-15 he's liable to be charged.
The only way he (possibly) walks away from this is if the investigation can prove that he assumed that she was of age. I don't know what the League or Boston's course of action would be at that point though.
Under the assumptions that the allegations levied against him are true here are some things he could get charged for:
These would fall under Pedophilia and would probably have him register as a Child Sex Offender along with it's legal ramifications.Note that I'm not an expert so I could be missing other charges that could be levied against him just as I could be wrong about California's specific state laws on this subject.
Take this with a grain of salt but...while this might seem ridiculous to some of you...that's wholly irrelevant. IF the investigation confirms what he's being accused of.
I guess some of the responses might be cultural differences, but people fail to understand that the moment DK knew her age, again assuming that she actually did tell him, he was solely in the wrong and she can't be blames for anything that happened afterwards.
Hell even if she fully consented and this got found out in some other way he'd still be in the wrong because of her age.
Really simple concept even if the situation is more complicated.
Irrelevant to this issue at hand.
Assuming she actually did tell him how old she was, he is the sole person responsible for his situation. She has nothing to do with it according to the law, and he should have known the risks involved with pursuing her at that point.
Some might be, but realistically it doesn't matter if she participated willingly. The moment he knew she was 14-15 was the moment he should have opted out because he knew what the consequences of his actions were.
Again, the problem isn't that she wasn't a willing participant, clearly she was, it's that he kept being involved with her in that way despite being aware of her age.
This is assuming that she didn't lie about revealing her age to him.
It's normal for leagues to suspend their players if they're being investigated for this type of allegation. This is nothing new.
That's odd, Asher, a Korean OWL player, seemed offended.
You're either trolling, or you don't get it either.
S Tier analysis.
Monte's take on it:
Bunny -> Valiant
Soon and/or Unkoe -> Fuel
Effect -> Dynasty
Arhan's Tracer is by no means strong though.
Undad, the most prolific OWL player that has ever lived.
You took the downfraga because you missed the point.
Once Shy and Eileen are 18...well if they're still around, maybe the reformed SHD team will greet them with open arms to an amazing player atmosphere that caters to player development and improvement.
Or they become Fortnite streamers. KappaPride
That seems unlikely according to this very reputable and reliable Reddit post (OMEGALUL):
No matter what patch they use Sombra would still have her new hack, including the 2sec cd when interrupted.
It's unfortunate that we can't get to see how brig would be used at the Pro level before shit hit comp in S10. But i understand that way too many people would lose their shit if she was in OWL before ranked.
Ana is only sometimes played with Zen. You need a Lucio/Mercy player.
YOU DON'T GET TO PICK CANADA!
Need a Tracer player and Main Support there.
I think I might want still want Zunba instead of Envy since he's better at the other OTs imo.
Don't forget what Soe mentioned, about him being homesick. He might not even want to play if he's not feeling it.
Mangachu probably gonna be sat for the most part, but XL2 has now become my favorites to win contenders, above Fusion Academy.
Prepare for the biggest most insane OWL bidding war once the off-season hits. Mr. 150k might not look like that much when that happens.
That could, and probably would, break the system at the extremities of the bell curve. I wouldn't see them go higher than 5 in the future tbh.
You still see him coming so his gap closing issue hasn't been removed, just lessened. I think it's a good balance change.
it's a great timeline to be alive, that's what it is.
See Slasher's tweets about it:
Looks like he either had to release it or have Slasher release his own version of it. Lesser of two evils here.
AFAIK they should start next week, not including Architect, but I don't know if all of them will see play time.
Fuck it, I'll do it boyz. Gonna go represent over.gg since Enigma is too busy taking care of us an this site.
They might have him and Babybay take up the projectile and hitscan roles respectively with Danteh and Sinatraa sharing the Tracer role. All 4 players are relatively flexible so who knows how they decide to mix em up.
Choi's pretty good, OWL level for sure imo, but better talent has been wasted by better teams so we'll have to see how they decide to use him.
Don't forget that Fissure wanted to play, but with Gesture being so good he just wouldn't have seen as much time as he'd wanted.
This is a good move for Fissure and London still get to have themselves a solid backup.
Looking forward to seeing all the TO Esports folks in NA! Gonna be an even scarier team once they do!
As a black dude I'd honestly like to say that I care, but I can't be fucked. And I never have Twitch chat open for any Pro OW event anyways. Overall it's just dumb and w/e statement people tried to make got instantly lost in the meme fuckery.
Yup, I think it's time to bring out the S tier team and go the the reverse sweep.
It's my job. over.gg pays me to do this.
Or they just play Clock on all maps.
Houston current map loss streak stands at 11, if they somehow go down 0-3 they'll tie Boston for the record with 14 maps, 0-4 means they claim the throne with a 15 map losing streak.
Time to bear down and take back control of your season boyz.
