Quite sad that people going for personal attacks on someone who tries to help out the community just because he does not like boosters. What is wrong with you guys?
Edit: i forgot im on aj :/
The joke is that he is doing this while being extremely aggressive and at the same time blaming the majority of the people attending this very tournament. It was not relevant to the article and the whole article was built on writing something that lacks clear understanding of how the competitive scene works.
I like the attempt to put focus on the West e-sport culture versus Asian e-sport culture, but again it is done on a completely unreasonable premise. Hildegard has enormous dreams and goals for wow e-sport and it clearly shows in his articles with overstated goals. All his work would have been great, if it has been done 4 years ago, thinking that a few pictures from a medium to low successful Shanghai-Tournament is going to make big non- IT related corporations sponsor people is really pushing it, even if it was just a thought.
It feels much unorganized and lacks a goal, mistakes and bad articles are often pushed away with “Yeah I did that intentionally to provoke you” or “Look how much discussion there is? So my article must be good?” even when the discussion is about the quality of the article instead of the content in the article.
My respect to Hilde for doing something, even though I disagree with how it is being done.
