I must be yeah, indeed.

It's interesting you mention charity, and not voluntary.

My English is not really good but in my country we have two separate words for two different meanings of "doing something for free".

One is indeed chartity, the other one is more like "getting a personal interest in being a voluntary". Anyway, cultural differences I suppose, or age difference maybe, or even both idk.

I totally understand Azazel... I would quit those guys too if I wouldn't get my money... this is sad as they have some nice price money for winners... but what is that tournament without proper commentating... its pretty bad for viewers to be honest.

I understand too, I can figure out how frustrating it is to be promised some money and be fooled.

On the other hand, I was a bit was disappointed though. Before that I can't remember any time Azael or Conrad mentionned they were actually paid to commentate an online tournament.

I know shoutcasters on the biggest tournaments scenes like LoL or SC2 are paid. But... As a naive person, I really thought both of them were just interested in promoting the game before actually getting paid for shoutcasting. Or just to get a free ticket for Blizzcon (and then getting money from Blizzard, obviously) or stuff like that. In fact, I find a bit embarassing that the organizing team is getting paid for such an online event. I mean, I think it's a noxious atmosphere. Get a job to get money, then play the game, shoutcast, organize tournaments for your pleasure. I think ppl actually gravitating around WoW and the esport scene for money aren't healthy for the game.

I must be wrong or have a complete biased view of the situation idk, but alot of ppl in this world take part in a lot of events for free, just because they love to do so and promote their activity.

So basically yeah, he got scammed by organizers and doesn't diserve it AT ALL cause he has done an amazing job over the years but I find the manipulation "#boycott" "#payazael" a bit misplaced, inappropriate even a bit embarassing tbh. I feel like I got scammed too, listening to these guys for years, promoting these tournament among my online friends "see, they're doing that for free man, and they're doing great". Anyway...
